It’s been a long road to the much anticipated Gladiator 2namely 24 years to be exact. This sequel has everything going for it with Paul Mescal in the lead role, accompanied by two Hollywood stars in Pedro Pascal and Denzel Washington.

While the first film Gladiator was a drama of epic proportions, the sequel seems to want to go even further by integrating almost every obstacle possible and imaginable.

Getting thrown into the arena seems like a tough enough situation as it is, but when the Coliseum turns into a swimming pool filled with bloodthirsty sharks or a hunting ground for a rhino-riding fighter, the odds really don’t seem to be in your favor.

Thanks to the trailer, we now also know that Lucius Verus, played by Mescal, will face multiple enemies, including Pascal’s General Acacius, with whom he comes face to face in the thrilling final moments.
