I doubt the Greco-Roman thing is an issue, given that Hollywood is perfectly comfortable green-lighting 300, Spartacus, Clash of the Titans, The Immortals, etc.
But none of those movies brought such characters into the present day.
True. But the Harry Potter movies were crammed with mythological creatures and fantasy elements set in the present-day. Didn't seem to scare audiences away.
Ditto for GRIMM and ONCE UPON A TIME.
That's not specifically Greco-Roman, sure, but I'm not sure why Snow White or dragons in modern times would be less of a stretch than an Amazon princess . . .
