Evan Peters, known for his portrayal of dark characters in Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, is set to venture into a new realm as he joins Oscar winner Jared Leto in the upcoming film Tron: Ares. Peters, who expressed a desire to move away from such roles, will now be part of an action-adventure flick. While his character remains undisclosed, it is unlikely that he will play a role as sinister as those he is accustomed to.
Peters’ addition to the cast is highly anticipated, especially after his Emmy Award-winning performance alongside Kate Winslet in HBO’s Mare of Easttown, where he delivered a compelling depiction of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, earning him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. With the inclusion of Peters, known for his roles in X-Men and WandaVision, it is evident that Disney is assembling a stellar lineup for their latest foray into the Tron universe.

After a prolonged period of uncertainty, fans eagerly await the unveiling of the new and visually captivating narrative in Tron: Ares. The previous installment, Tron: Legacy, was released over a decade ago, and plans for a third film had remained in limbo for years. While specific plot details are yet to be disclosed, viewers can anticipate another thrilling technological adventure within the grid, with the possibility of Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund reprising their roles from the 2010 film helmed by Joseph Kosinski (Top Gun: Maverick). Although the fate of Jeff Bridges’s Kevin Flynn seemed sealed in the digital world at the conclusion of the sequel, there remains a chance that he may return to action in the upcoming installment.
