'Spartacus: Vengeance' First Look: Liam McIntyre Ready for Battle (Photos)
TV audiences will have to wait until next year when Starz premieres Spartacus: Vengeance to see the series' new leading man, Liam McIntyre, in action. But, the network released new images of the star on Tuesday, which show he seems pretty comfortable with the warrior's sword.
McIntyre replaces former star, Andy Whitfield, who had to pull out of the production for health reasons. Season 2 picks up with Spartacus and his fellow gladiators now out of Capua and engaged in a massive slave rebellion with Roman society.
McIntyre will be appearing at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 22 along with costars Dustin Clare, Lucy Lawless, Manu Bennett, Katrina Law and the series’ executive producer, Steven S. DeKnight.
Check out the first look photos below.
