That’s a shame. While the first Clash of the Titans film made money, it was derided both for its narrative engagement and the technical hiccup of its quick 3-D conversion. The follow-up, Wrath of the Titans, somehow managed to be less well-thought of and actually made less money than Clash. So that’s the end of that right? Well, not so fast. And I mean that literally and figuratively. In a new interview with IGN, Clash and Wrath producer Basil Iwanyk said that there is interest, but there will only be a third Clash when there’s time enough to undertake it. (more…)
So when was the last time we heard anything about The Flash? It seems that since last summer’s Green Lantern debacle, Warner Bros. has recoiled on developing the rest of DC Comics’ pantheon of heroes and focused on the ones they already know (sometimes) work: Batman and Superman.
But The Flash and others are apparently still in the mix, at least according to screenwriter Dan Mazeau, who co-wrote the new Wrath of the Titans and previously worked on a draft of The Flash with Geoff Johns.
“I think Warner Bros. is finalizing their strategy of how they want to roll out their DC superheroes, and obviously they’ve got Batman in an incredibly great place, and Green Lantern, I think, performed okay,” Mazeau said in an interview with Blastr. “I think they probably would have liked it to have done better, but yeah, there is still a whole lot of excitement for the DC universe, and I know The Flash is very high on the list.
“It’s like anything, though,” he continued. “It has to come together with the right cast. It has to come together with the right director and sort of the right moment, and so they’re trying to push the rock up the hill … hopefully there will be some news soon, but right now I can’t really say anything else.”
Mazeau added that at last he heard, Green Lantern writers Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim were working on revisions, but I imagine that probably came to end once Lantern came out and sucked. The weird part is that Green Lantern’s got to be easier to adapt then The Flash, but hey, I’m not a fancy Hollywood screenwriter, so what do I know.
As for Mazeau’s script, he says that his Flash was going to be Barry Allen, although, “For fans of Wally [West], there were some things in that script that would make them happy also,” he adds.
Another featurette has been released by Warner Bros. for the upcoming film, Wrath of the Titans. The video features some new interviews and footage, paying especial attention to Makhai.
The sequel to Clash of the Titans is directed by Jonathan Liebesman and will be released in theaters on March 30, 2012.

The sequel Wrath of the Titans comes out in just over a week’s time, and it promises more monsters, better 3-D and at least 20 per cent less suckage, maybe 25.
Having said that, here’s a featurette about one of the creatures that Perseus must do battle with in the film: the Chimera. Personally, I don’t care for how the creature looks in this effort, but hey, I didn’t care for Clash of the Titans much at all, so the fact that I’m nitpicking is already an improvement. But I digress.. Here’s the featurette:
So what do you think Bastards? Good, bad or indifferent?

In an effort to get people to go see the newest Titans film, Warner Bros. has spammed the airwaves with four more trailers. Each trailer gives a little taste of what has been causing mouths to water among the Greek-themed fanboy crowd.
The 2010 Clash of the Titans remake, while looking impressive and making a fair share of cash, left fans of the original a little disappointed. The new movie promises much the same, though less disappointment since there’s nothing to compare it to.
And without further ado, four 33-second clips filled with shit exploded, people being killed and giant monsters destroying everything in sight.
And don’t forget, it opens on March 30th and will be playing in IMAX 3-D!
Thanks to our friends at ComicBookMovie.com for giving us the heads up on this one.
Lots of trailers starting to roll out for upcoming movies, expect the flow to increase as the Summer blockbusters start vying for your attention. Here are the updates for John Carter, Wrath of the Titans, and Chronicle.
John Carter cast includes Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church, and Willem Dafoe.
Here’s the Synopsis:
From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
Wrath of the Titans, directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle LA) and stars Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramiez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell, and Rosamund Pike.
Here’s the full synopsis:
A decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, Perseus (Worthington) –the demigod son of Zeus (Neeson)–is attempting to live a quieter life as a village fisherman and the sole parent to his 10-year old son, Helius. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity’s lack of devotion, the gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (Danny Huston). The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of Tartarus, a dungeon that lies deep within the cavernous underworld. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with Zeus’ godly son, Ares (Edgar Ramirez), switch loyalties and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as Zeus’ remaining godly powers are siphoned, and hell is unleashed on earth. Enlisting the help of the warrior Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Toby Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
Opening in theaters on February 3rd, the movie stars Dane DeHaan, Michael B. Jordan, Alex Russell and Michael Kelly. In Chronicle, three high school students make an incredible discovery, leading to them developing uncanny powers beyond their understanding. As they learn to control their abilities, and use them to their advantage, their lives start to spin out of control, and their darker sides begin to take over.
Oh goody, the sequel to 2010’s Clash Of The Titans has a trailer and some images and no discernible identity at all. Warner Bros has released the first official trailer for Wrath Of The Titans and correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t look pretty much exactly like the last one? You may have to correct me because I have gone to great lengths to eradicate all memory of that terrible movie (scotch).
Wrath Of The Titans will fill our eyeballs with all its nauseatingly bad 3D March 30th 2012, directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle LA) and stars Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson (Why, Liam… why?), Danny Huston, Edgar Ramiez, Bill Nighy, Toby Kebbell and Rosamund Pike.
You can check the trailer and some promo images out after the jump, then flame me in the comments because you really loved Clash Of The Titans and I am some how wrong for thinking it was one of the worst movies ever.
Go on, I dare you.
