In a recurring guest star role, the AEW star will play Ares, the god of war. He has previously appeared in shows such as “Vikings,” “Haven,” and “The Flash,” as well as films such as “Money Plane” and “Interrogation.”
Despite not always being the sharpest tool in the shed, Copeland’s character is described as “handsome in a wicked way and arrogant.” He enjoys conflict and acts as a chaos agent wherever he goes.”
Percy Jackson is played by Walker Scobell. The series also stars Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadri.
The series is produced by Quaker Moving Pictures, Co-Lab21, James Bobin, Inc., Moorish Dignity Productions, The Gotham Group, 20th Television, and Disney Branded Television. The first season will consist of eight episodes and will premiere on December 20, 2023.
