Social media users are circulating a viral message suggesting Netflix will not only produce a God of War Series, but also season 1. This is expected to arrive July 15, 2018. Sorry folks, it’s not happening and you’ve been bamboozled!
This isn’t the first time there’s been a social media post spread promoting a Netflix Original series that simply doesn’t exist. These two cases include Resident Evil, which was originally expected to be a Netflix original series. A fake trailer for A Series of Unfortunate Events was released many years ago, but it was finally announced months later as a series. That may be the case with God of War but to the best of our knowledge, there’s no such thing as a God of War series.
God of War, in case you didn’t know, is a video game franchise that recently got a new entry just last year. Sony owns the series, which has an enormous following.
This post has been shared nearly 150,000 times, received nearly 70,000 likes and almost 80,000 comments on Facebook. It was attached with the tagline: “Are you ready for this? Jason Momoa will portray the infamous Kratos in the new Netflix Series #GODofWAR” Here’s the photo that was attached to the post.
If a title was being developed around the God of War franchise its likely that Sony’s movie production would be behind it and it’d be a blockbuster movie opposed to a series.
There is good news. In case you haven’t already heard, Netflix is producing a series around another video game series called The Witcher. The series is in its early stages of development. If the Jason Momoa was the most exciting prospect of this announcement then you’ve probably already checked out his Netflix Original series Frontier. He’s also putting the final touches on Aquaman due out in cinemas soon.
For the meantime, the closest you’re going to get to a God of War movie is by watching all of the cutscenes from the most recent video game release.
We could be making a living out of this franchise as it is prime for a TV series. At the moment at least, it’s not to be. Do you want to watch a God of War TV series? Would Netflix be the best option to do it?
