Do Empire Mag know something they’re not telling us?
They’ve captioned a photo of Rufus Sewell’s Autolycus in the latest Hercules film - in rather ominous surroundings - with “Something tells us he could be the villain.” Wait, what? I thought he was a good twat on a horse this time?! Is he not one of the good guys after all? I mean, I know he’s often the villain in films, but he has good-guy roles too! John Murdoch is the hero of Dark City, Aurelio Zen is a detective doing good, Tom Builder (bless him) is good, as is Seth Starkadder (mostly - just some of his *ahem* “hobbies” aren’t). Rufus has also gone on record in their podcast to say that his Autolycus will be a “good twat on a horse”. Was he told to lead them on, to not give away the plot of the film? Or are Empire leading us on?
And, on a side note, I want to know what name Rufus gave to his horse. Apparently, they all gave their horses names to help bond with the animals; equine monikers included Hendrix & Stubs. The article doesn’t delve deeper into this tidbit of info though. So, we don’t know whose is whose! Or what the other names were.
