In the image shared to Instagram by co-star Pedro Pascal, the Kildare native can be seen relaxing in the chair of the hair and makeup station.

Mescal is shirtless in the image and wearing costume cuffs, a toga style garment and covered in special effects bruises.

Chilean-American actor Pascal shared the image alongside the new poster for the highly anticipated film that releases in November.

Last week he shared some action shots of himself and Mescal deep in battle in some first look stills from the film.

Irish hunk Mescal plays Lucius, the nephew of the killed off character Commodus, who was played by Joaquin Phoenix in the first Gladiator film.

The Last of Us star Pedro plays Marcus Acacius in the long awaited sequel, and Denzel Washington also has a supporting role as an arms dealer, while Connie Nielsen reprises her role as Lucilla.

The first official poster features Mescal front and centre in armour and crouched down with a full arena behind him.

He rubs sand between his palms and a sword is lodged in the dirt in front of him ready for battle.

The poster also features the November 22 release date.

The official trailer for the film will drop tomorrow, giving fans a further look at the Irish actor in action.


Fans went wild for the new behind the scenes snaps of the buff Irish actor and took to the comments to express their excitement for the upcoming film.

One person commented: “This is a lot for a Monday.”

Another wrote: “Staring : Paul Mescal•Pedro Pascal with Paul Mescal’s Thighs and Biceps.”

Another person commented: “I’m so ready.”

While another added: “I am so there. The movie looks so good.”
