Though the helmer admits he still does not know what will happen to the Sam Worthington's character, he claims the follow-up movie will be exciting and deal with ancient superheroes.

Even before "Clash of the Titans" was dropped in U.S. theaters, Louis Leterrier has shared his plan to make two follow-ups to make it a trilogy. Though he sounded very sure about the future of the franchise, the director apparently does not know how the titular character, Perseus, will be told in the next films.

"I'm not saying I know what exactly will happen to Perseus in the next two movies, but I know the direction and it's pretty exciting," he said to MTV about the Sam Worthington's character. "It's ancient superheroes."

Though so, Leterrier has an idea to explore more the Greek mythology by delving into characters from the first movie and introducing new ones. "You've got so many creatures, so many heroes, so many gods. You have Daedalus, Icarus, Percivel. Amazing stuff. You've got several worlds. I could spend the rest of my life directing Greek mythology movies and I would still not finish everything," he elaborated.

In contrary to Leterrier who still has no idea about the future of Perseus in the sequels, screenwriters Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay are adamant that they will do it with the demigod if they are hired to write the upcoming movies. "I think we definitely want Perseus", Manfredi previously told MovieWeb before Hay added, "Yeah. We've always imagined it with Perseus."

Meanwhile, speaking to MTV, the scribe duo claimed they have more stories for the upcoming films as Hay stated, "There are so many small stories to mine that don't make movies on their own, but you can weave them together and create a comprehensive world. We all hope we get to do it. It would be thrilling."

"Clash of the Titans" revolves around Perseus who voluntarily leads a mission to defeat the vengeful god of the underworld before Hades can seize power from Zeus and unleash hell on earth. Unleashed in the U.S. on April 2, the 3-D epic movie made a strong debut at North American Box Office with $61.2 million revenue.

if thats how the myth goes, they should've made andromeda and perseus have more chemistry. they dont seem right together in this movie. io and perseus seem like they actually have feelings for each other. :)

I can't believe how ridiculous the story was with Io in it. She totally screwed the movie up for me. That and the lack of interaction with the other gods that were very much a part of the myth. And what is up with every Greek myth movie these days turning Hades into some variation of Satan? So stupid. Hera was probably one of the biggest "bad guys" in Greek mythology, but only because Zeus was so promiscuous. Give me a break people! I will NOT be watching the rest of this trilogy if it's going to be this bad!

He should stay true to mythology and have Perseus end up with Andromeda.

I'm sorry but if they do a sequel they need to follow the myth! Io had nothing to do with Perseus! He marries andromeda and has seven sons. Who cares about the chemistry between io and perseus that's not how the story goes.

Haven't seen the remake, but I see that like the first one, the producers didn't over pay for the role of Zeus. Anyways, are there any actors like Olivier (sic) around anymore?
