SPARTACUS 'VENGEANCE' | Stills featuring Liam McIntyre, Viva Bianca, Lucy Lawless
Spartacus: Vengeance‘s plot synopsis: “Spartacus and the late Lentulus Batiatus’ other gladiators are on the run from Rome. The Roman forces are led by Spartacus’ en-slavery, Legatus Claudius Glaber.” Spartacus: Vengeance will also star Gareth Williams and Cynthia Addai-Robinson.
About the revolt Spartacus leads, The Third Servile War:
The Third Servile War (73-71 BC), also called the Gladiator War and The War of Spartacus by Plutarch, was the last of a series of unrelated and unsuccessful slave rebellions against the Roman Republic, known collectively as the Roman Servile Wars. The Third Servile War was the only one to directly threaten the Roman heartland of Italy and was doubly alarming to the Roman people due to the repeated successes of the rapidly growing band of rebel slaves against the Roman army between 73 and 71 BC.
The incidents leading up, during and after the war were chronicled in Howard Fast’s great book that inspired two movies and this series.
