Talks of a sequel to Clash of the Titans began as early as March 2010., who played in the first film, stated at the film's world premiere that, "They want this one to do well so they can go ahead with the sequel, Return of the Gods". In April 2010 it was reported that director would not return to direct, but would be an executive producer on the second installment. The report also stated that was on board and that would write the story.

In June 2010, hired screenwriters and to write the screenplay, with Basil Iwanyk returning as the producer. Rather than being converted to 3D, it was announced that the sequel would be filmed in 3D. In August 2010, reported that had signed a deal to direct the sequel.

Also in February, Liebesman announced that Wrath of the Titans would be converted to rather than shot in 3D as previously reported despite the negative criticism the first Clash of the Titans received for its use of post-conversion 3D. Liebesman explained, "I think what you have to remember is the first film was neither shot nor edited with 3D in mind. It was shot as a 2D movie and edited as a 2D film, and they decided to convert it with six or seven weeks to go until release, which is insane; the technology was not there. That's why we're conceiving it from the start, from the ground up, in 3D, editing in 3D for 3D." Liebesman also stated the reason behind the conversion was because he wants to shoot on film, which will give the film's imagery better texture than he would get shooting digitally.

Box office[]

"There's a lesson here: It might be better to burn out then fade away, as famously sang, but not in the film business. If Wrath of the Titans ultimately flops, then, it will do so in the exact form today's Hollywood prefers: safely, quietly, without much of a fuss.

—Robert Levin of regarding the film's box office prospects and results.

Wrath of the Titans earned.6 million in North America and 1.6 million internationally for a worldwide total of 5.2 million, less than the 3 million grossed by its predecessor. The film was co-financed by and for 0 million, about million more than it cost to produce the original. It debuted day-and-date in 61 markets worldwide sans Japan and delivered a global opening of 0.3 million.

In the United States and Canada, the film was released in a total of 3,545 theaters with 2,900 3D locations (4,400 3D screens), and 290 IMAX locations. Initially, it was projected open around with –40 million. It opened Friday, March 30, 2012 with million from midnight screenings in 1,490 theaters. The film went on to earn.2 million in North America over the weekend, finishing in second place behind which was playing its second weekend. The opening is over half of the original's.2 million debut. It played well in IMAX representing.7 million of the total weekend's gross. Not surprisingly, the follow-up attracted a large male contingent on its opening weekend with 66%. Roughly 65% of the moviegoers – about 55% of whom were over the age of 25 – saw the film in 3D.

Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution, said the comparison between the opening of the first and second film was not fair because the original opened on, when more teenagers were out on spring break. He lamented on the film's poor box office performance saying, "we made a decision to open a week before the holiday this time and generate positive word-of-mouth since we had issues with the last one regarding the 3-D conversion, we're gonna get there – we're just gonna get there in a different way." However, despite not opening on a holiday weekend, the film had the advantage of playing a week before in which the company could avail the spring break, which was staggered over the next two weeks. However, all this didn't necessarily aid the film's further box office performance. Warner Bros. said they didn't expect the sequel to reach the same level.

Outside North America, the film had a more successful opening but this success later dwindled due to poor and eventually was unable to topple the first film's final 2 million international gross. It opened in first place – dethroning — with.1 million from 14,600 screens (9,766 of which were in 3D) in 60 territories. It debuted in first place in 46 markets, notably in nine of the top 12 international territories including Korea (.3 million), France (.1 million) and Italy (.8 million). Its biggest opening territories were Russia and the CIS (.8 million, representing 18% of the total weekend foreign take), Mexico (.2 millio) and Brazil (.1 million). The film was ranked No. 1 in 11 markets across Latin America. Also internationally, it had an opening of million from 176 screens – or,000 per site – with Russia contributing about,000 per-screen at 19 IMAX locations.

Critical response[]

, a, reports that 26% of 166 surveyed critics gave the film a positive review; the average rating is 4.5/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Its 3D effects are an improvement over its predecessor's, but in nearly every other respect, Wrath of the Titans fails to improve upon the stilted acting, wooden dialogue, and chaos-driven plot of the franchise's first installment". assigned the film an score of 37 out of 100 based on 32 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews". In polls conducted during the opening weekend, audiences gave the film an average grade of "B+" on an A+ to F scale, slightly better than the first film's "B" grade.

The film earned a nomination for Neeson as Worst Supporting Actor. of called it, "A relentlessly mechanical piece of work that will not or cannot take the imaginative leaps to yield even fleeting moments of awe, wonder or charm"., who gave the first film three stars, awarded Wrath with only two, remarking "It lacks a comprehensible story, and you won't need your on the Greek myths. You get an idea of who the major players are, and then they spend a modest amount of time shouting laughable dialogue at one another while being all but forced off the screen by special effects.". Mark Olsen of the criticized, "Directed this time out by Jonathan Liebesman, the film lacks inspiration or zest in storytelling, performance or action. This is pure product, a movie desperately without energy or enthusiasm of any kind". However, there have been some positive reviews. Andrew Barker of noted that, "The has matured ever so slightly with Wrath of the Titans, hewing incrementally more faithfully to its Greek origins and trimming the fat in essential places". of magazine wrote, "Wrath [of the Titans] radiates the straight-forward, straight-faced pleasures of the mytho-muscular epics, like and, produced in Europe a half-century ago". of commented, "For a movie that's basically all warmed-over pseudo-mythology and special effects, Wrath of the Titans is certainly more fun, in its solemnly junky way, than. It may also be a little more fun than its cheeseball predecessor, the 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans".

Cancelled sequel[]

Following the film's release, a second sequel, called Revenge of the Titans, was in the pipeline. However, due to Wrath's disappointing critical reception and box office returns, the project was later shelved. In May 2013, Worthington stated he did not think a third film would be made. In December 2013, producer Basil Iwanyk confirmed the sequel was not happening due to a lack of fresh ideas for the script.
