Theseus Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

Think Theseus is hunky? So does Hollywood. That's why they cast the too-cute Henry Cavill to play him Theseus in the 2011 movie, Immortals.

In the God of War II video game, Theseus summons tons of minotaurs to fight against Kratos. Is it just us, or is it a little weird that minotaurs are fighting for the guy that killed one of them?

Theseus may have been all brawns, but Plutarch used him for a philosophical puzzle. Can you figure it out? (We sure can't.)
