Clash of the Titans in sight in Hollywood? Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a poster that rocked social media! Will the actor slip into the costume of Zeus, God of Olympus?
He fought a Predator, embodied a Terminator, before becoming Governator! Today, Arnold Schwarzenegger will he interpret a God of Olympus?
On January 27, the one who camped Conan the Barbarian posted a poster on his social networks that came out of nowhere. The actor reveals himself in the costume of Zeus, the supreme god from Greek mythology. Menacing gaze, full white beard, protruding armour, lightning bolts at his fingertips… the actor imposes his charisma.
FROM CONAN THE BARBARIAN TO THE GOD ZEUS?
This post has had the effect of a bomb on the Internet. Did Schwarzy just announce a secret project that would be released in February 2022, as the poster indicates? After having played badass characters throughout his career, finishing on the role of Zeus, God of Olympus, would be a rather exciting outcome for the artist.
Ironically, the actor had interpreted the son of Zeus in Hercules in New York, directed in 1970 by Arthur Allan Seidelman. This was his first film role. However, since the poster announces a release in February, it cannot be a feature film. It is hard to imagine such a blockbuster emerging in such a short time.
The most likely hypothesis would be the announcement of a commercial scheduled for the Super Bowl, which will take place on February 13. The final of the American football championship is followed by millions of television viewers around the world.
In 2021, there were more than 96 million in front of their post. This sporting event is a huge showcase for advertisers, who are ready to break the bank to run advertisements, especially at halftime of the match.
AN AD FOR A VIDEO GAME?
A video game could also be behind this whole marketing campaign. Schwarzy has already lent his image to promote video games, notably recently with an advertisement for World Of Tanks.
Why not a big announcement on that side in February? For example, we could have a trailer for the long-awaited God of War Ragnarök, sequel to the first opus in which Kratos made a massacre among the Gods of Olympus.
POSEIDON IS INVITED TO THE PARTY
In addition, another actor came to support Schwarzenegger! The German Ralf Moeller, seen in Universal Soldier and Gladiator, posted a poster of the same ilk representing him as Poseidon, God of the sea and oceans.
This teasing is in any case more and more extensive. And if the buzz works around the ad, could it become a real feature film project? In any case, we will probably have the answer on February 13 during the Super Bowl!
In the meantime, in Schwarzy’s upcoming projects, we find Triplets, a sequel to Jumeaux, and The Legend of Conan, the return of the famous barbarian. No Zeus in sight…yet.
