Trivia

Here the audience meets a new champion in Gannicus, portrayed by Dustin Clare. Dustin was among the final picks for actors to portray Spartacus in "Blood & Sand." Ultimately the role went to the Late Andy Whitfield and Dustin had no involvement in the project. But when Andy was diagnosed with cancer and the prequel was under way, Dustin was the first choice for a new Gladiator to hold the spotlight in Spartacus' stead. See more »

its back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
22 January 2011 | by dr-tpro_7See all my reviews

all the adrenaline, the excitement, the fighting and blood -all what made the first season so successful is back....and at equal if not at a higher standard.... i just hope they keep it up, and i still have high hopes for the second season meaning of course the continuation of Spartacus's's story... what a way to start of this prequel, absolutely incredible and from the first episode i can tell its gonna be good! what amazes me the most is they managed to make it interesting,we know what happens at the end, but the stories and characters they introduce make Spartacus's:gods of the arena another win for starz!!!! cant wait for the next episode and hands down the best season premiere I've seen in a while now!!!! 10/10
