    From Hero Complex:
    'Percy Jackson' and 'Clash of the Titans' draw on same Greek myths but with epic differences

    I'm excited for this. I just hope he gets the same colorist for his comic like he had for 300. Also i hope Zack Snyder won't add any "mutant" or whatever freak soldiers for the Persians. -__-

    I didn't find the inbred freaks or body mod extremists that unrealistic. The satyr was a bit much...

    Xerxes was an interesting cat himself though. The scene in 300 where Leonidas killed the wolf was actually based on Xerxes killing a lion.

    Why is it called Xerxes when the Battle of Marathon occurred under Darius the Great?

    I guess it chronicles his rise to power.

    Doubt it. 300 wasn't historical or accurate, nor will this chronicle Xerxes. I think it's another excuse for Zack Snyder to grease up Europeans to play Greeks and cash in on the success of 300.

    Name me a historical epic that was accurate? Movies have always taken ridiculous liberties with characters and settings for the sake of story. I doubt Xerxes was in reality an 8 ft giant with a goat man in his tent but hey, if you're gonna mythologize a golden age of history, you might as well push the boundaries and see what you can get away with.

    if anyone remembers RICHIE was supposed to do the LOBO movie as well. :doh:

    i am not happy with this , seeing as how he only made ROCKnROLLA but never did the sequel to it.

    the Xerxes i know ( when i saw his LUKE GOSS version *one night with the king*) i immediatly made the connection because i remembered it being THAT xerxes who had the greek campaign , not to get all religious on the subject but IRAN and GOATFACE whatshisname are full of crap , if you use history you can counter with the entire area being part of the persian empire and then it doesnt matter.

    personally , as long as its not a crappy director (looking at you SHAMALAN, SCHUMACHER) i think it would be a good movie , as long as they stick to the poetic license and not give a SMURF about Political correctness.
