Now this is a great final season title! The upcoming season of Spartacus will be the show’s last (details here), and has the final season poster. The first season was called “Blood and Sand,” the prequel was “Gods of the Arena” and Season 2 was “Vengeance.” This is the best subtitle of them all: “War of the Damned.”

Here’s the rather awesome-looking poster. You can bet Game of Thrones fans will compare this to the HBO hit’s season 2 poster (both have a hand gripping a gold object against a black background with a war-themed red tagline). Regardless of what you think of the comparison, Spartacus drawing the gaze of Thrones‘ legion of fans could help boost interest in the show’s final season.

Here is what I’m assuming is a rebel’s hand clenching the Roman army’s gold eagle standard, which is covered in blood. Did Spartacus bludgeon some soldiers with their own standard? 

Here’s the final season teaser video:
