Gods of Egypt

Meet the Gods of Egypt! Summit Entertainment has unveiled a set of character posters for Alex Proyas' next movie, title Gods of Egypt, an adventure epic about a common thief who joins a mythical god on a quest through Egypt. The posters feature: Gerard Butler as Set, God of the Desert; Brenton Thwaites as Bek, Thief of Legend; Chadwick Boseman as Thoth, God of Wisdom; Elodie Yung as Hathor, Goddess of Love; and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, God of the Sky. There's a few others missing from the cast list, but I'm sure more will be revealed eventually. These are such gloriously epic, colorful, eye-catching posters that we can probably expect the same spectacle whenever the footage is unveiled in the first trailer.

Here's the first official set of character posters for Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt, found via ComingSoon:

Gods of Egypt - Gerard Butler as SetGods of Egypt - Brenton Thwaites as Bek

Gods of Egypt - Chadwick Boseman as ThothGods of Egypt - Elodie Yung as Hathor

Gods of Egypt - Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus

In this spectacular action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt, the survival of mankind hangs in the balance as an unexpected mortal hero Bek (Brenton Thwaites) undertakes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. In order to succeed, he must enlist the help of the powerful god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in an unlikely alliance against Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. As their breathtaking battle against Set and his henchmen takes them into the afterlife and across the heavens, both god and mortal must pass tests of courage and sacrifice if they hope to prevail in the epic final confrontation. Gods of Egypt is directed by Alex Proyas (of The Crow, Dark City, I Robot, Knowing) from a screenplay by Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless. Gods of Egypt arrives on February 26th.

    Mein G-d!~ These are some awful posters. I really hope the movie is better than these posters.
  • desispeed
    well they already ruined the Greek Gods with Clash of titans......onto the Egyptians next! Guess the ppl complaining about ethnic casting issues with the Exodus movies are going to riot over these posters!
  • W.
    They look like Gods of Europe.
  • evilED
    I smell a massive sleeper hit, or a major flop. Could go either way.
    • Lagoya
      The later...
    • Firefly15
      Major flop, this crap has a $140 million budget....
  • Jim Dawkins
    wow who knew egyptians were white as snow.
  • Firefly15
    Awful, just awful.
  • ari smulders
    bad, very bad...
  • redskulllives
    Egyptian gods were white? No way. Hollywood go home your too ignorant.
    • steve
      How do you know they weren't white, were you around back then? It's a movie. Get over yourself lol, who cares. How about we get some no name Egyptian people who can't act and don't speak english so we can make the movie more authentic.
      • Veronzo Hurd
        There are PLENTY of black actors to fill these roles well, more of these roles. You are white. and beyond that. The first thing on your mind when you saw that comment was to attack.. so you also don't care to understand the plight. This is intentional
        • steve
          So a black man is gonna play an Egyptian person? Lol what's the difference? People will still complain. I didn't take it as an attack. I took as someone complaining about something ignorant
          • Cyberdine
            Exactly my point. Let's say they did even get someone of Egyptian ethnicity, they will still continue to complain about how poorly he did or how bad the movie was or how he didnt portray the Egyptian role properly. It'll always be something.
          • In the time of the pyramids, the people living there didn't look like modern Egyptians, they were Nubian. All I can say is for a God Butler will have to be bathing in suncream like Cleopatra in her milk because as a fellow Scotsman, I'd literally be on fire in Egypt.
      • redskulllives
        That would have made the movie more interesting. Subtitles I see it now. Thanks douchebag.
  • A Scotsman and a Dane?! Hahahahhahahaaaaaaah.
    • Veronzo Hurd
      lmbo!
  • Cyberdine
    Jesus I've never heard so much whining about these Egyptian roles. Is this the only nationality that you are all sensitive about?! These people are actors, thats their job! Stop bitching already. Where was all this whining when Ben Kingsley played Gandhi, Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson played Soviets in K-19, Mel Gibson played a Scotsman in Braveheart, Russel Crowe a Spaniard in Gladiator, Gary Oldman a romanian Dracula, etc....?!?! Granted the movie might be bad, but for god's sakes quit complaining about actors playing other nationalities!
    • David Diaz
      I think people get that actors play vastly different roles than their ethnicity dictates and I'm cool with it. But at the same time I think there are many darker skinned actors that might be hispanic, black, or middle eastern, and would physically look like an Egyptian more than a caucasian.
      • Cyberdine
        Trust me, they would still be complaining.
    • Jesus had brown skin too. He is always played by white guys.
      • Cyberdine
        Dumb.
      • ISpartaChrisI
        True. It's not important though.
    • Veronzo Hurd
      you don't get it do you?
    • Veronzo Hurd
      It is deliberate sir. We are speaking of the blatant lack of nationality truth.. im colored/brown/black/african american whichever is politically correct at this point. So that is what i speak on. How many africans were in gladiator? well ''africans'' played by black peopole? .. how about Exodus ? Ben kingsley with a tan looks like ghandi. at least... .. don't tell anyone to stop bitching unless you have walked in their shoes.. hollywood does this on purpose. because they get funding for these films and feel the would not get the amount the 'want' if there are more black actors playing in it. ... this. is. Egypt. like the ration of brown to non brown was more than likely and scientifically staggering. There are enough african and colored actors to make this film.
  • Ed Word Galán
    This is what cultural genocide looks like
    • Dan Hibiki
      Yeah... you do know this isn't a religion any more right?
      • Ed Word Galán
        it's the intentional /unintentional removal of black/brown faces from history. You may say that this is harmless but you have to keep in mind that humans have a very short memory. The kids who were born in the last 15 years and the ones yet to be born will see this and they will see this as accepted reality unless educated otherwise.

      I'm sorry, what shoes are you speaking of? If you're speaking of the terms of being a minority whose trying to get diversified roles, well then no I dont know the shoes cause i am not an aspiring actor. However, I'm speaking to the people in this forum who continue to complain about diversified roles not getting their corresponding racial actor/actress. Whether black, white, indian, brown, asian, doesnt matter, there are endless roles throughout the years that did not have the "politically correct" acting race. This will never ever change, because in the end, things are run by a hierarchy that is probably beyond mine or your understanding. If you want to complain about how people of color are not getting their due because of hollywood politics, well, i'm sorry but at this day and age, thats only an excuse. If you want something bad enough, you make it happen. And if you dont, well you didnt want it bad enough. The fact that you blame Hollywood, is the same complaint almost anyone of any race can make about any kind of employment or passion they are pursuing. And besides just because Gerard Butler is headling the movie, who's to say there wont be many black acting supporting roles. I believe it is common sense that this world isnt fair, so unless you come from money, there is no other way to get what you want but to do everything you can to make it happen. All else is just an excuse.
    • Lagoya
      And we get a black man playing an Indian in the Martian... LOL
    • HIST_ACCURATE
      r obviously not a scholar or even a novice independent researcher lol. Yah we would get his ass handed to him twice, and that would be based on if he ever existed. This AUTHENTIC REAL FACTUAL SOUND CONCRETE WELL DOCUMENTED HISTORY. So please go argue with these Inbred White Leper and that Yaweh /Jesus /Michael Angelo/Serapus etc etc Bulls hit fictional charater.
  • Mista Dontplay
    this is like a black person starring in the vikings smh...
  • ISpartaChrisI
    Remember when Yah sent the plagues to show how each of these "gods" are a joke? That's the true and best story.
    • HIST_ACCURATE
      Ur obviously not a scholar, or even a novice independent researcher, like ur Caucasian Inbred cousin who made this Pytolomaic garbage of a film.
      • ISpartaChrisI
        Please explain in proper english.
  • John Doe
    Yeeeaah... Think I'm gonna pass on this one.
    • Theresa Porter
      Till I saw the draft which was of 8135 dollars, I accept that my friend’s brother was like really generating cash in his free time with his pc. . His aunt's neighbor has done this for only 9 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car .Look here for details ...☞85 www.splashfind.hp.lc
