First Look: Angry, Trident-Wielding Perseus from '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.
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?
