Today, Variety announced that Adam Copeland, Suzanne Cryer, and Jessica Parker Kennedy have joined the cast of Percy Jackson on Disney+. Copeland (better known as Edge on WWE) will play Ares, the god of war. He is described as “handsome in a wicked way and arrogant, despite not always being the sharpest tool in the shed. He loves conflict and acts as an agent of chaos wherever he goes.”
Cryer is set to play Echidna, The Mother of Monsters. She is described as “dangerous, intimidating, and strangely maternal. She enjoys her task of challenging heroes and will test Percy’s faith in the gods.” And finally, Kennedy will guest star as Medusa, “wronged by the gods and bitter. Medusa lives in isolation until travelers stumble on her emporium. She is welcoming to some and a threat to others.” Production is currently underway in Vancouver and will run through January 2023.
Percy Jackson will stream exclusively on Disney+
