    Why there must be a sequal?

    Miller didn't make one.

    Did he?

    If so, I congratulate Snyder for finally doing something original even if it seems unnecessary.

    In the article it's mentioned that Miller is working on one, which the movie will then follow.

    just adapt the battle of Plataea .. since the first movie ends at the onset of it..

    but this time leave the monsters and stuff out.. it was a neat trick since 300 was being spoken orally to the troops amassed at Plataea .. to demonize the enemy and all that.. but if they make another one make it less fantasy and more real..

    but then again.. frank miller lives in a fantasy.. so maybe not.

    I don't see a sequel working at all. Its just one of those exceptional movies that goes solo.

    Yeh, just wait, it will be revealed that they were all from another planet, banished there and...sounds a bit 'Highlander 2' that does. Get it Zack? Get it? Do you get what I'm saying - High. Lander. 2. Was. Unnecessary. Drivel.

    Salamis was a major naval battle actually, and Mycale was kind of an amphibious operation where they landed marines to take out the remnants of the Persian navy (who had beached themselves to avoid another sea battle) after Salamis.

    Sounds quite entertaining. Were sea monsters involved? Well, they could be, chuck in a few persian Gill-men and I'll buy a ticket.

    300 is all about buff men brutally killing one another. In the end, that's all it needs.

    But no Gerard Butler? I do wonder what the story will be about.

    well... no sea monsters in the real battle, but obviously in the stylized 300 world there could be easily.

    Ehhhhhhh. 300 kinda sold itself on the gimmick that there was,..you know only a few guys against a lot(and that they were gonna die). I don't think it'll have the same impact if it's only a slightly outnumbered group versus the massively outnumbered group in 300.

    Also, I'm going to miss Gerald. He spat out some hardcore cheeseyness but I doubt anyone else can fill his sandals.

    I'd personally rather see Rodriguez get his act together and make Sin City 2 already..... >_>

    I can't see a 300 sequel working well, sure there is material to work with but none of the battles after the events of 300 are as heralded as the battle of Thermopyle

    It'll be a tough go seeing as how all but one of the main characters bit it in the end.

    The canceled sequel to "Gladiator" had Maximus in the afterlife, fighting the gods n stuff.

    It was canceled for good reason, but it would be perfect as a sequel to 300. Snyder and Miller's fantasy world would provide the right tone and backdrop for King Leonidas to continue fighting in the afterlife.

    Wouldn't that just end up as God of war the movie though?
