Zeus on the loose

God lets down hair at 'Wrath of Titans'

Two years after Warner Bros. and Sam Worthington celebrated the box office sensation that was “Clash of the Titans” in Hollywood, studio took the franchise festivities to Gotham for the preem of “Wrath of the Titans.”

Monday’s AMC Lincoln Square screening was followed by a bash at Gotham Hall where the Greek themes included several life-size stone statues as well as a few demigods, including Worthington and Liam Neeson.

Despite “Clash’s” B.O. success, “Wrath” co-scribe Dan Mazeau, who took over the franchise’s screenwriting reins, admitted that he was keen on pleasing the crix this time around.

“We wanted to build on the first film,” Mazeau said. “We wanted it bigger and more spectacular, but also deeper. The reality is, all the spectacle in the world doesn’t necessarily make an audience care about a father/son relationship.”

Mazeau said he also relied on “Clash” fans when penning the sequel, especially when it came to the length of Worthingon’s hair.

“After reading a lot of online comments and criticisms,” he recalled, “we knew that his buzz-cut in ‘Clash’ was not working, so literally, the second line of the script was ‘Perseus has longer hair.’ “
