What Is The Movie’s Plot?

Gladiator 2's plot details are currently unknown. However, based on the casting, we may assume that the story takes place years after the events of the first movie.

Though we expect the story to take a number of liberties, as did the first Gladiator, the real history involving Emperor Geta could provide an interesting setup. After their father's death, Geta ruled Rome as a joint emperor with his brother Caracalla, but Geta was assassinated within a year as the two struggled for power.


Will Gladiator 2 Be Released In Theaters Or On Streaming?

The first Gladiator film grossed a whopping $503 million USD at the international box office, more than quintupling its $103 million USD budget. With those numbers, it seems extremely unlikely that Gladiator 2 would forego a theatrical release.

Not to mention that a spectacle like gladiatorial combat is something that even the most avid viewers would prefer to see on the big screen rather than on their computers. That said, we wouldn't rule out a streaming release, and given that Paramount Pictures owns the Gladiator intellectual property, a release on Paramount+ seems likely.
