In a bizarre/kind of awesome decision, King Leonidas will be a playable character in the upcoming God of War: Ascension. He's being offered as an exclusive multiplayer character when you pre-order from, of course, GameStop.

Either way, the inclusion of a vaguely related property in your title is kind of appealing. Why not just start tossing movie characters in all new games? We wanna see Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln in BioShock Infinte. There, we said it. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think.
