The plot of Gladiator 2 is unknown. The movie will be about 30 years after the first one. It may be about Lucius, who is Lucilla’s son and was in Wonder Woman. Lucilla is the former lover and sister to Commodus. The movie starts 25-30 years later, so she will be an older woman, not a girl.
Who will be starring in the sequel
Even though Crowe’s and Phoenix’s characters died in Gladiator, you never know what the writers will do in Gladiator 2. Ridley Scott has been hinting that he might bring back Maximus. When asked about it Ridley Scott said “I can bring him back.” I know how to bring him back. I talked about it with him, and he agreed. I am using the body of a dying warrior as a way to bring someone back.“
Connie Nielson said that Lucilla can come back and probably will. Nielsen gave this update about Gladiator 2 to EW: “We did hear from the producers. I think it is just a question of which movie is coming first in Ridley’s tight schedule.” And then I think it’s a question of COVID. Can we get back to work? But I would be interested in the film, for sure. It is a wonderful project, so of course, I would be interested.
Djimon Hounsou was in the movie Shazam. He played Juba, a Numidian tribesman, fellow gladiator, and eventual friend to Crowe’s Maximus. He might come back in the sequel!
This movie is not done yet. I can’t tell you what actor will play the lead role of Lucius. It will also be interesting to see how they have Lucius follow Maximus’ footsteps as a gladiator.
What Does Chris Hemsworth Have To Do With It?
Chris Hemsworth and Russell Crowe worked together in a movie. They took a break from the set and they went to bars to hang out with each other. They got to know each other very well because of this. Then, Hemsworth’s wife suggested that they should make Gladiator 2 together. What if they co-produced the project?
Ridley Scott says 'Gladiator 2' is currently being written and will start shooting after his next film ⚔️
Then sources said that Russell Crowe could play Chris Hemsworth’s son in a Gladiator 2 movie. This would be exciting to do, but it is still too early to say that will happen.
Russell Crowe and others are credited with bringing back the swords and sandals genre. Gladiator was a big hit in 2000. It had great storytelling, action, adventure, gore, and love. So there is still interest in Gladiator 2.
It’s about a soldier who is on his way home after some important battles. He has won many of them. He wants to go home to be with his wife and son, who he cares about very much. When the emperor came back, he told Maximus that Emperor Marcus Aurelius wants him to be on the throne. The emperor’s son is bad and not good for the country.
Commodus, the son of the emperor, hears about a plan to kill his father and take over. He then kills his father and asks Maximus for loyalty. Maximus refuses. Maximus is arrested but can get to his home where he finds his wife and son murdered. Crowe’s adventure as Maximus then turns to slave, then to a gladiator, than to revenge.
