Adam Copeland will play Ares in the ‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians‘ series for Disney+. The series is based on the novel series of the same name by Rick Riordan. he told Adam Copeland that, “This guy is Ares the way I imagined him in the Percy Jackson series. He obviously knew the part, loved it, and was having WAY too much fun being the god of war. He even got a Harley-Davidson motorcycle so he could practice riding and get into character.”
Percy Jackson and the Olympians follow a 12-year-old modern demigod, Percy Jackson, who’s just coming to terms with his newfound divine powers when the sky god Zeus accuses him of stealing his master lightning bolt. With help from his friends Grover and Annabeth, Percy must embark on an adventure of a lifetime to find it and restore order to Olympus.
The series stars Walker Scobell as Percy Jackson, Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth Chase, Aryan Simhadri as Grover Underwood, Virginia Kull as Sally Jackson, Glynn Turman as Chiron / Mr. Brunner, and Jason Mantzoukas as Dionysus / Mr. D.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians is scheduled to premiere in 2024.
