Clash of the Titans is a BritishAmerican fantasy action media franchise based on characters and myths of Ancient Greek mythology. The first film, Clash of the Titans, was released in 1981 with a remake made in 2010. The remake spawned a sequel, Wrath of the Titans, in 2012.


The series began with Clash of the Titans in 1981. It was followed by a remake of the same name in 2010, and a sequel Wrath of the Titans in 2012.

In 1984, a concept for a sequel for the original 1981 film was proposed to MGM, but was never made. The film would have been called Force of the Trojans.[1]

In November 2011, Warner Bros. hired Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson to develop and write a treatment for a third installment, Revenge of the Titans. The pair had previously written Wrath of the Titans, which was still in post-production at the time.[2] In the spring of 2013, Sam Worthington said he did not think a third film would be made.[3]
