We’re as clueless to the character as you are, since this is a new addition to the franchise. We would love to hear your thoughts on who this character could be!
[UPDATE]: Deadline is reporting that Antonius is President Snow’s minister in the Capitol. While Lionsgate remains tight-lipped on the exact character and what he means in the story line, the description goes well with the famous Roman, Mark Antony.
