We have already seen one of the exclusive posters being released to promote 300: Rise of an Empire this week at SDCC, but Warner Bros. has another poster that will be on display as well. Featured this time around is Xerxes!
After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes’ army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land.
I doubt this will be the last we hear of Rise of an Empire this week, so make sure to keep your eyes on Major Spoilers for all the coverage from San Diego Comic Con.
