God Of War Film Has Different Ending?
As most of you know, Hollywood is preparing a film adaptation of the original God of War, which we all hope will be halfway decent. If it sucks, it'll be a huge black mark on that franchise's nearly flawless reputation.
Anyway, according to CinemaBlend, an entertainment reporter has actually read the script and while he says it "almost slavishly" follows the storyline in the game, the ending is actually different.
God of War Game and Movie SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
We'd like to assume that all of you have played the game by now but if not, that warning is there for you. So now that we've covered our asses: the final battle is between Kratos and Ares, and not surprisingly, Kratos emerges victorious. He is then offered the mantle of "God of War" and he accepts it, which of course leads to more problems in the sequel. But in the movie, it seems Kratos declines the crown and tosses himself off a cliff and just before he slams into the rocks below, he says, "Your turn, Hades..." And that's the end of the movie.
We can't really decide whether this is good or bad, but we're not about to struggle with it. The bottom line is that if the movie is good, we kinda don't care how it ends; we just hope to the God of War and every other God out there that it kicks ass the way it should. Could this be the first example of a great game series spawning a great movie series...? Or is that too much to hope for?
