Sam Worthington in Wrath of the Titans

"I am Perseus!" When I first saw this photo, I hesitated posting it, just because of how amusing it was. But then I realized we haven't seen a single image from this yet, for better or worse, and this is indeed our very first look. Scanned via Collider from Entertainment Weekly, here's our first look at Sam Worthington as Perseus in Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans 3D remake, this time directed by Jonathan Liebesman of Battle: LA. The shot is of Worthington grabbing two tridents, while looking angry, and it's funnier than it is badass. The quote is good, too: "that's probably a massive spoiler."

Here is the photo in all its glory. Hope we see more soon, this is supposed to be out in about four months.

Wrath of the Titans First Look EW

Which spoiler? It's not really, but from the lower left: "The trident is but one of several celestial weapons Perseus has to bring together 'in order to create an uber-weapon,'" says director Jonathan Liebesman. Intriguing, since we otherwise don't know much about this. From IMDb: Perseus embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, who has been targeted for capture by his traitorous son, Ares, and his brother, Hades. Besides Worthington, it also stars Edgar Ramírez, Toby Kebbell, Bill Nighy, Rosamund Pike, with Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes reprising. Warner Bros has Wrath of the Titans, which was shot in 3D, scheduled for release on March 30th, 2012 next year. We're still waiting to see a trailer. Anyone?

    Is it me or at 1st glance I thought it was John C. Reilly!
    • Sean
      How can he look like John C. Reilly ? Jo C. Reilly is fatter then Sam Worthington and they both don't even have similar faces.
      • Sean
        whoops, I ment to say John C. Reilly, not Jo C. Reilly, lol.
        • He doesn't look like it on this page, but on the little thumbnail link from facebook he totally looked like John C. Reilly for a second. it's the hair

            Hmmm maybe the should've called this one 2 Clash 2 Curious.
  • OH NO
    Jonathan Liebesman??????
  • Michael Johnson
    I am still hoping for the directors cut of the first film. Hopefully the studio wont interfere with again with the second.
  • Lebowski
    When Sam Worthington's face get so fat?
    • Noilikeurmombest
      that's exactly what i thought. fattie. chubby. ugly fatsooo
  • Dotadestroyer
    This looks very weird to me. His skin tone should be much darker, due to the fact that this is the greek god era. People worked and lived outside. Him not being tanner bugs me lol.  Troy did well on the skin tone of characters.

    I liked the Visualization and the story of the first Movie. Okay, it was much to fast story telling. But it was okay. I like to see the two sequels!!! Especially because i like Sam Worthington in the role of Perseus. Even if he got hair now...that looks...not good 😀
  • TheLaughingMan
    Don't see how he looks funny,looks pretty badass to me and I'm looking forward to this sequel.I say bring it.
  • Itance7
    I didn't know he could grow hair
    • Sean
      I knew he could because in the first movie "Clash of the Titans", he basically had a buzz cut. He wasn't bald.
      • rennmaxbeta
        Yeah, but Worthington has had the same haircut in every movie he's been in recently. It's a surprise to see him looking like that. Hope he went to accent school as well to hide that Aussie voice. Like, try and actually ACT. Change your appearance, voice, etc. Otherwise it's just lazy.
  • grimjob
    The original was great, the remake was pointless but alright. I just never understood why the title was ever Clash of the Titans. The Titans, to my memory, never had anything to do with the scripts. I don't recall them even being mentioned, but its been awhile since I've watched the original, and I've only seen the remake once. Anyone?
    • TheLaughingMan
      lmao you've got a point,guess it just sounds better than Clash of the Gods.
      • grimjob
        Yeah, I suppose so. I watched The Immortals a couple weeks back. Not bad. The Titans in that were ridiculous though. Looked like men, just crazy fast. Why can't anyone just make proper use of them? I'd love to see gigantic beings going to war against mythological gods.
  • eyespy
    I've heard the 3rd one will be called, Titans Vs Mega Shark 4D 
  • Manuel
    He looks like the "Teto" Medina in that picture. 
  • Mr. Foe
    Danny McBride + John C Reilly = Sam Worthington (in this picture)
  • ur_babys_daddy
    Not worthy of a sequel.
  • Nightshade
    Wasted money watching the first one, thank god I didnt bother watching it in 3D...No way in hell im seeing this one no-matter how epically awesome the trailer is going to be (referring to the firsts trailer)

    I'm hoping for a best case 'mummy 1-2' and worst case Clash 1...  It was a mindless popcorn flick with a great one-liner (release the Cracken!!), nothing more.  Besides, Greek Mythology is so conveluted that it seems really hard to accurately nail down for a movie.  I liked Battle: LA so hopefully the director could bring some of that grit to the sword & sandal genre.   just me.   
  • Sequels are often better than worse these days. I think movie studios write off the first one just to establish franchise, then make bank by improving on the latter ones and generate extra buzz and profits as a result
