God Of War Game Director Addresses The Rock Kratos Casting Rumors In Amazon Show


Deity of Conflict game director Cory Barlog responds to recent speculation that Dwayne Johnson has been chosen as Kratos in the upcoming Prime Video adaptation. Barlog has been involved in the Deity of Conflict series since the initial game in 2005. After assuming the roles of director and story writer for 2018’s Deity of Conflict, he would take the franchise in a new direction.


Just over a year after Prime Video’s Deity of Conflict adaptation was announced, Barlog has taken to Twitter to address rumors regarding a potential actor playing the role of Kratos. The alleged casting discussions were initially reported by TMZ, which claimed that Fast & Furious and Black Adam star Johnson was being considered for the part of the Ghost of Sparta. Barlog firmly denies the reports, stating that he has “literally never heard anything about this,” in response to an account spreading the rumors.

When it comes to casting Kratos in Deity of Conflict, it may be one of the most challenging tasks for the series, as the character has become one of PlayStation’s most iconic and recognizable figures. In the Norse era of Deity of Conflict featured in the 2018 video game and its 2022 sequel Deity of Conflict: Ragnarok, the character was voiced by Christopher Judge, who portrayed an older, weary Kratos attempting to leave his violent past behind. Judge received numerous award nominations for his performance and ultimately won Best Performance at The Game Awards in 2022.

With Judge receiving much acclaim for his portrayal of Kratos, finding an actor who can match his performance is one of the biggest challenges for the team behind Prime Video’s Deity of Conflict. While it remains uncertain whether the actor would be willing to wield Kratos’ axe, Judge shared his thoughts on Kratos’ casting on Twitter when responding to a fan suggestion of Dave Bautista. Bautista could be an excellent choice, but he may wish to avoid physical warrior roles for the time being, as he recently departed from his role as Drax in the MCU. Bautista has expressed his desire to further explore his acting abilities.

While specific details about Prime Video’s Deity of Conflict are mostly unknown,

For God of Warcasting Kratos may be one of the series’ most difficult tasks, as the character has become one of PlayStation’s most iconic and recognizable figures. In God of War‘s Norse era that featured in the 2018 video game and its 2022 sequel God of War: Ragnarokthe character was voiced by Christopher Judge, who portrayed an older, weary Kratos who tried to put his violent past behind him. Judge was nominated for numerous awards for his portrayal before winning Best Performance at The Game Awards in 2022.

With Judge having earned much acclaim for playing Kratos, finding an actor who can match him is one of the hardest tasks for the team behind Prime Video’s God of War. While it is uncertain whether the actor would be willing to wield Kratos’ axe himself, Judge shared his own thoughts on Kratos’ casting on Twitter when responding to a fan-casting suggesting Dave Bautista. Bautista could be an ideal choice, but he may hope to avoid physical warrior characters for the time being after stepping away from his role of Drax in the MCU. Bautista previously stated his intention to push his acting prowess further.

While details about Prime Video’s God of War largely remain under wraps, it is safe to assume that Johnson won’t be involved based on Barlog’s response. While Johnson may be a star in his own right, he may be preoccupied with portraying another god in Disney’s live-action Moana remake in the near future. Furthermore, with Barlog firmly refuting the rumors, speculation can turn to who else in Hollywood could take on the role of the PlayStation icon.
