* CastingGag: The original featured Bond girl Ursula Andress playing Aphrodite. The remake also features a Bond girl, this time Gemma Arterton playing Io. * CreatorBacklash: Louis Leterrier disowned the final film, claiming "it's not my movie" and refused to return for the sequel. * DeletedRole: Apollo and Athena had major roles in the original cut, but the film was reworked. Apollo's role was heavily reduced, while Athena was almost cut completely. Additionally all the Gods originally had lines in the first scene on Olympus.

* OldShame: Alexander Siddig who played Hermes, referred to this as "the lamest movie I ever made", claiming 50% of his performance was deleted.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Matthew Belamy was writing the score, but had to abandon midway through as Music/{{Muse}} started a tour. ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1pW_71h3rk The original ending]] is closer to the original myth and movie. *** Perseus slapping Zeus with a fish would've been closer to the original myth than the release ending. *** The original cut of the film was closer to the original film, and with far less plot holes regarding Zeus and the Gods. A large portion of it, including the original ending posted above, is available as deleted scenes. The intended plot can be read here: http://www.chud.com/23299/by-zeus-the-version-of-clash-of-the-titans-you-didnt-see/

It would have ended with a MaybeEverAfter situation between them. *** Perseus's main motivation for going after the Gods in the original was to show that mankind did not need to rely on them for anything. Likewise he wished to save Andromeda because he felt that nobody should be sacrificed for the sake of the people. In the finished film, he just wants revenge on Hades. *** Apollo and Athena had major roles, conspiring against Zeus and Hades. Apollo was originally the one who offered Perseus passage onto Olympus. ** Zeus was far more villainous in the original cut. The film would have ended with Perseus going to Olympus and putting Zeus and the rest of the Gods on notice. Zeus would offer him a seat, but Perseus would refuse - saying his father is a dead fisherman.

** The original idea for the movie was a CrossoverCosmology with [[MesopotamianMythology Tiamat]] waging war against the Greek pantheon and Perseus being assisted by [[EgyptianMythology Thoth, Osiris]], [[MesopotamianMythology Marduk]] and [[Literature/TheBible Yahweh]]. He would also apparently have a romantic affair with some "Cthonian Earth goddess." (The filmmakers apparently have something against Andromeda for some reason...)

** Perseus' adoptive father was [[Film/{{Inception}} Maurice Fisher]] and [[TheUsualSuspects Kobayashi]]. Who was in... so many movies he deserves his own trope for being the HeyItsThatGuy in so many movies.
