Damn, well Empire is on a roll in their newest issue being released. First we brought you the new covers and photos from The Avengers and now here are some images from the upcoming film Wrath of the Titans which happens to be the sequel of Clash of the Titans. In Wrath Sam Worthington‘s character has the task of rescuing Zeus, played by Liam Neeson, bestowed upon him. Who has the power to kidnap Zeus you might ask. Obviously none other than Hades, who is played by Ralph Fiennes.
I wasn’t the biggest fan of Clash of the Titans so I hope that this sequel can pick up what the previous one didn’t. I honestly doubt it can happen but whatever. Wrath of the Titans opens in 3D on March 30, 2012.
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 (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 (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 (Pike), Poseidon’s demigod son, Argenor (Kebbell), and fallen god Hephaestus (Nighy), Perseus bravely embarks on a treacherous quest into the underworld to rescue Zeus, overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
