When it was first announced, Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur was supposed to be the start of a massive interconnected franchise based around the Knights Of The Round Table. However, it looks like they’re hedging their after moving it all around the release schedule and then changing the name to King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.
That doesn’t mean it’ll be a disaster but does suggest they perhaps don’t have as much faith in it as they once did – especially as we’ve heard fairly little about it in the last year. However, now a couple of new images have been released via EW.
They show a bruised and battered looking Arthur (Charlie Hunnam), who tells EW of his character, ‘He’s a bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. There’s definitely a harder edge than people would imagine.’
There’s also a show of Jude Law as the villainous Vortigern, which you can see below. The movie is currently due out next March.
