Jason Momoa Is Keen To Play Kratos From 'God Of War' In Movie

The epic video game God of War hasn't been released to the public but it's attracted stellar reviews from critics around the world. People have been genuinely spellbound by the graphics, storyline, missions and all-round beauty of the PlayStation 4 game.

It's the eighth instalment in the God of War franchise, which is a very good innings for a video game series, and naturally people are wondering whether we could see Kratos and his adventures on the silver screen.

While no suggestions have yet been made that a Hollywood adaptation might come about, at least we know of one actor in particular that is thrusting his hand up for consideration.

We know him well from Game of Thrones and Justice League and he's embodied those roles perfectly, so why couldn't Jason Momoa be Kratos?

At a Comic Con event last year, Jason was asked if he was familiar with the series and he responded with: "Do I know God of War? Yeah, the guy with the white paint... I would love to play him."

The fan went back to him and asked: "If Sony ever contacted you, would you consider playing him?"

The reply from Jason was simple, but enough to excite fans: "Hell, yeah!"

He's already got the physique but could always get more hench to become the demigod. Momoa would be up against the likes of Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson - aka The Mountain from Game of Thrones, who also looks a bit like the Ghost of Sparta.

There's only four more days until the video game is released to everyone and if the critics' opinions are anything to go by, we're in for a real treat.

Twenty-five perfect scores have been doled out by some of the denizens of the gaming media. That makes it by far the best reviewed game of 2018, and one of the best in recent years.

In fact, it's the critic's favourite game in the entire history of the PS4, racking up a score of 95 on OpenCritic and 94 on Metacritic.

"The texture of grassy hills in the distance feel real, light dances dazzlingly off of shinier surfaces, and every gnarled monster I have fought conveys such a sense of decay as to instil terror in me. Even the sky looks nearly photo-realistic."

The titular deities in God of War have previously been Greek - Kratos, the main character, was a fallen Spartan warrior, something of an antihero who was tricked into killing his family by a vengeful demigod, who later ascended to being a God himself.

This instalment in the series pivots to the realm of Norse gods - think Thor - and thus features brand new environments, brand new camera angles and subsequently, altered gameplay.
