Neeson as Zeus

10.05.2009

From Entertainment Weekly, we now have our first look at Liam Neeson as Zeus in the upcoming CLASH OF THE TITANS, and it's probably not the thunder god you were expecting. No flowing white hair and toga here, Neeson’s Zeus looks like he hopped out of the elf boat from LOTR, as he dons leafy golden armor and much younger-looking brown locks.

Logical paradoxes of an immortal god needing to wear battle armor aside, he does look rather cool, as does what appears to be the Olympus war room he’s standing in. The only thing Neeson needs to work on is standing up straight, because slouching is not the posture of the gods.

Click on the picture to head over to EW to see one more.

Extra Tidbit: I can't reiterate enough how much this movie should just be altered slightly and turned into GOD OF WAR.

GOD OF WAR INDEED!

Yes, God Of War would have made a kickass flick IF done properly. Rated [R] with the right budget to pay ILM for CGI and the right cast and you have yourselves the next big epic trilogy of (pun intended) Olympian scale.

This looks pretty cool, too. And I agree with ReverendRob below...God Of War should be a full CGI flick. Would be awesome and there wouldn't be a continuity issue in terms of actors returning for sequels a'la Dark Knight.

It would look better if...

...it was gray or white like all the artistic portrayals of Greek Gods (imo)

YES!

I agree, God of War would have been a MUCH BETTER DECISION THAN ANOTHER REMAKE!

Liam Neeson looks really, really awesome in that picture, but nothing like Zeus.

I'm hip to this news all right, but I really prefer Zeus to have white hair/beard. And his legs look awkward in that armor. The costume would benefit greatly with a toga. Maybe if he just wrapped that cape around his body, it would look like a toga.

Yeah but...

Why the armor? This would be incredibly good if it was Lord of the Rings, but do gods need armor on the Olympus room?

News from the set of this film just keeps gettin' better! ++++ it looks like Zeus is walking across a gamers landscape of sorts- with the small character pieces at foot. A god's eye view to chart humanity-like a game-this idea is pulled from the original film-but done here in grand style.

God of War.....

.....its just a matter of time. However i honestly think the best way to do it would be a CGI movie. Kratos would look like Kratos and at least they could get the same voice actor involved. Plus a lot of the visuals could be pulled to truly epic proportions if done CGI. But what do I know :)

Nicccce

That looks pretty bad-ass. I like that they didn't go for the typical Zeus look. I'm hoping this movie delivers cause it looks like it should be pretty fuckin metal .

Perfect casting for Zeus!

Is it me or is he standing on a giant replica of the game RISK ?
