That's good...I'm not familiar with the role but anytime he chooses to play a movie role I'll give it the benefit of a doubt. He gives a lot of character to his roles.

Hermes is the god of trade, travel and athletics. You ever seen the sandal with wings on it? That's his symbol. He kinda played a messenger between the gods and humans. He also led souls to the afterlife.

It's pretty interesting that Fillion is being cast here. Seems like an "odd" choice, just because I wouldn't imagine him being involved with this movie. But definitely makes it interesting. Makes me that much more curious to watch it as well. I actually didn't hate the first one, so I would probably get around to watching this at some point anyways. But this makes it even better.

Thanks for that info...I have seen that sandal with wings and didn't know what it was. This is different for Fillion to play but it's okay too.

Hopefully this will be darker and more serious than the 1st film.

This film has taken its time.
