It is official that a Gladiator "Jr." is being penned and it will be
produced. It will be hard to repeat, especially if actor, Crowe, isn't
made to come back to life. Gladiator "Sr." wasn't a soap opera
after all. It is possible that Crowe's star presence could be utilized like
in Star Wars, where Obi-One is shown as a spirit in the sequel.
After considering all the challenges, I admire everyone who is involved in giving us fans
something to look forward to.
How about less blood spewing out of severed necks?
it cannot be avoided, because the title is Gladiator, how about
disguising it by letting the viewer imagine it instead?
It will be interesting to find out at what angle the story will be
written. Maybe Maximus and Commodus had a cousin, nephew, etc. and both
will have something to settle. Maybe the conflict will be who will win
Helen of Troy? But that was already penned by Homer and the star was
Odysseus. That's what's great about stories. Anything can happen!
While there were rumors of a sequel, thus far nothing has gone to fruition.
