You might be wondering why the title references the third season of Vikings: Valhalla if the first only recently found its way to Netflix. Well, the sequel series to Vikings got an early renewal and has already started work on a second season right after the first finished. Now, it seems they are gearing up for a third that will start production in Ireland later this month in Croatia. It seems they have added Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ Razer Fist, Florian Munteanu, to that season.
He will take on the role of the Byzantine Empire’s general, George Maniakes, who would start a revolt against the emperor. The storyline follows the tale of Leif Erikson and Freydis Eriksdottir, who are Norse exporters that would eventually discover the US. Munteanu has been quite busy, as he is fresh off of his work on the third Creed entry, where he once again played the character of Viktor Drago, the son of Dolph Lundgren‘s Ivan Drago.
He’s also going to appear in the upcoming Borderlands adaptation alongside Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Cate Blanchett, and many more. He’ll be a great addition to the series, which explores the Viking era without shying away from its darker sides and even diving into its politics. We’ll see just how they tackle the storyline of Maniakes, especially how big of a role he might have.
