Paul Mescal plays the major role of an adult Lucius, son of Lucilla (Connie Nielsen) and nephew of Commodus, who was represented by Joaquin Phoenix in the first film.

The Gladiator 2 movie is slated for release on November 22.It features Paul Mescal as Lucius, the son of Lucilla, who was portrayed by Connie Nielsen in the first film.

Mescal has stated he will be “profoundly depressed” if the new movie makes him even more famous than he currently is. However, if the frenzy for the teaser is any indication, the Irish actor will need to start getting ready. Mescal won a Best Actor nomination in 2022 for Aftersun.

The tale revolves around Lucius, who was played by Spencer Treat Clark in the original movie, who was transported by his mother Lucilla to the northern African area of Numidia in order to avoid the Roman Empire. But the events that are taking place force him to return to Rome as a gladiator.

But after watching Mescal and his co-stars, Pedro Pascal, Denzel Washington, and Stranger Things breakthrough Joseph Quinn, in action, fans couldn’t help but be perplexed by the song selection—Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild”—that was featured in the gladiator 2 trailer for the sword-and-sandal sequel.

Hans Zimmer is composing the score, but many are protesting that “it absolutely ruins the vibe” and that they would have rather heard part of it.

Resuming her part as Lucilla, Nielsen remarked of Pascal, “What a gift that guy is.” I truly adore him, and he’s so ideal for this role—even to play with and work with. He is one of those exceptional actors who have both heart and soul, along with the amazing ability to morph.”

Emperor Caracalla, played by Fred Hechinger (Thelma), and Emperor Geta, played by Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things), complete the ensemble. In the teaser, the two seem quite insane.
