‘Spartacus: Vengeance’ Teaser Gives First Glimpse of the New Spartacus

Fans of Starz’ Spartacus series were heartbroken by the news that Andy Whitfield would no longer be able to continue his role as the lead a*s kicker Spartacus.  Like them, I too have worried that the actor (Liam McIntyre) replacing him wouldn’t be able to fill the sandals that Whitfield brilliantly wore in Spartacus: Blood and Sand.  Well, at Comic-Con last week Spartacus fanboys and fangals got a glimpse of McIntyre in the role of the lead slave escapee in the teaser trailer for Spartacus: Vengeance.

Liam McIntyre as Spartacus 

I think Liam has nailed the look of Whitfield’s Sparty, but I’m not so sure on his voice.  Either way, as long as Vengeance showcases the brutal action of the original I think I’ll be able to get over the actor swap.  Check out the teaser below, and tune into Starz on 7/29 right before midnight to see the full trailer for Spartacus: Vengeance.  You’ve been waiting to see some more Spartacus gory action…
