At 4 PM on Friday at WonderCon 2011 Relativity Media unveiled five brand new character posters for Immortals, starring the new Superman, Henry Cavill. Along with Cavill as Theseus, the posters highlight Luke Evans as Zeus, Kellan Lutz as Poseidon, Isabel Lucas as Athena, and Daniel Sharman as Ares.
As a power-mad king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, a heroic young villager rises up against him in a thrilling quest as timeless as it is powerful.
The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission.
As village after village is obliterated, a stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) vows to avenge the death of his mother in one of Hyperion’s raids. When Theseus meets the Sybelline Oracle, Phaedra (Freida Pinto), her disturbing visions of the young man’s future convince her that he is the key to stopping the destruction. With her help, Theseus assembles a small band of followers and embraces his destiny in a final desperate battle for the future of humanity.
Directed by Tarsem Singh and produced by 300’s Mark Canton and Zombieland’s Ryan Kavanaugh, Immortals hits the big screen November 11th!
Mostly likely the largest panel of the weekend is Saturday’s Immortals event, which features director Tarsem Singh, along with stars Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, and Kellan Lutz. This is the first big geek-oriented appearance from Henry Cavill since he was announced as the new Clark Kent in Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel, so expect the actor to be bombarded with Kryptonian questions. It goes from 4 PM to 5 PM in the Esplanade Ballroom.
