Frank Miller Reveals Xerxes Plot Details

Writer of the popular comic 300 that inspired the popular movie drops some major plot details and a main character for the prequel comic Xerxes, which will also be turned into a movie
In an interview with Hero Complex, popular comic writer Frank Miller was questioned on his prequel to the hit comic and movie 300, Xerxes

On the plot of Xerxes:


"The time frame begins 10 years before 300 and the story starts with the Battle of Marathon, which was killer to draw, by the way, even if it was a lot of work. The lead character is Themistocles, who became warlord of Greece and built their navy. The story is very different than 300 in that it involves Xerxes' search for godhood. The existence of gods are presupposed in this story and the idea is that he well on his way to godhood by the end of the story," said Miller.


On the Zack Synder helmed adaption of Xerxes:


"I don’t do a comic book thinking there is a movie. I just want it to be as good a comic book as it can be. It’s up to Zack and company to make it work as a film," said Miller.


Miller also went on to confirm that Leonidas, who was portrayed by Gerard Butler in 300, will cameo by having a debate with the main character Themistocles and that some events following 300 will be featured in the comic. Neither the comic or the movie have a release date.

Hmmm...wonder if he'll be able to get into those leather briefs again.

Seriously, he's gonna have to look as good as he did in 300 in order to make this work for him again.

Oh which reminds me:

Who Wore It Best?
.
When New Years came and went over the weekend a thought crossed my mind, and that thought was of Baby New Year... specifically how I always wonder when I see someone dressed as Baby New Year if they're not just taking the one opportunity they have per year where it's acceptable for them to reveal their diaper fetish to the world. So just know if you're wearing a diaper in my presence I am thinking that about you, is my point. But then I thought hey, live and let live yo, especially if I could think of any hot guys I'd ever seen doing the celebratory infant spiel. You take what you can get, sometimes! But I couldn't - the closest I could come up with was the dudes of 300 in their leather diapers.

And then I realized I'd never asked y'all who wore the leather diaper the best in that movie (I did ask once whether Gerry was hotter in 300 or Tomb Raider though, and I agree with the winning assessment there). Anyway that was my thought process, aintcha glad to know that led to this query. I narrowed it to Gerard Butler and David Wenham and Michael Fassbender since duh, they're obviously my faves. Now we choose. Excuse me, ahem, NOW WE CHOOSE!!! Gotta do that the Spartan way.

There's a vote on who fills the leather diaper best?

Insanity comes in many forms.
No

I think Kevin Sorbo wore it best in Meet the Spartans.

Oh, I loved Kevin in that film.

I have always said, if Gman didn't take the job as Leonidas, I think Kevin would have made an excellent, but different character.
