First Thor Footage Courtesy of Entertainment Tonight Set Visit


God bless Entertainment Tonight. They have quite possibly the worst reporters in the world, they ask the dumbest, most non-movie related questions they can think of, but man, do they keep getting those invites to movie sets. Here’s their latest geek friendly set visit — Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor”. Get a look at Anthony Hopkins as a one-eye Odin! Thor in costume! Natalie Portman being all cute and charming!

Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior, is sent down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) as punishment for re-igniting a reckless war in Asgard. But after Loki (Tom Hiddleston), a dangerous villain from Thor’s world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth, the hammer-wielding Thor, with the help of a human woman (Natalie Portman), must learn what it takes to be a true hero in order to save mankind.

Starring Natalie Portman, Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgård, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Clark Gregg, Colm Feore, Tadanobu Asano, Adriana Barraza, Joshua Dallas, Matt Battaglia, and directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Thor strikes May 6, 2011.

    So, wait, he doesn't wear the Thor costume throughout the whole movie? I forsee the original Captain America movie all over again.

  • the goon

    this has CRASH & BURN written all over it.. like two highschoolers giggling at each other…. I hope they dont spend too much $$$ on this bomb…its a sin to waste….

  • Vampelle

    hmmm… dont he turn into his human part in the movie????? and he should be in his costume and fly use his hammer not Thor acting like a normal human

  • Dominique

    Omg….this is not “Journey into Mystery” or “Tales of Asgard”….if any of you bother to pay attention, there was a point in time where Thor was splitting his duties between superhero and his HUMAN ALTER EGO Donald Blake. It makes sense for him to be out of costume some of the time. I mean, seriously, did Robert Downey Jr., Tobey Maguire, or Christian Bale stay in costume for the duration of their respective movies? No. So why the hell is everybody wigging out because Thor has a change of wardrobe for part of the film? Jeez, trolls, the lot of you….

  • Dedpool aka Jiinx

    That is avsolutely the right answer Dom!! This is a film adaptation of the comics. Things are gonna change. They may not even have him have an alter ego, but just depower him a bit and have him on Earth to learn humility. I mean this was a behind the scenes quick featurette, not a DVD extra. There wasn't enough footage to get mad about. Sheesh. Dom is right about them not being in costume the whole film, that NEVER happens. We'll probably see him in costume at the beginning, and then in the last half of the film. People complaining about not seeing him flying or anything are bugging out. Maybe this is a scene when he's trying to hide who he is from people. Maybe it's when he's weakend. There no sense of placement for this so you can't complain.

    On a POSITIVE NOTE…Hopkins as Odin looks awesome, the Asgardian sets look good so far, and Hemsworth definitely bulked up. And mmmm Natalie Portman. I have high hopes for this film, and Branagh's part of the interview actually gave me alot of hope.

  • ULIK

    Aww man Thor IS wearing black pants with his costume. They could have done better than that,that looks horrible. This movie better be good cuz I had high hopes for it.

  • Dedpool aka Jiinx

    They're dark blue. A darker blue than the chest piece but still blue. You have to remember this was BTS footage so we're not getting the exact lighting that the film camera gets. Also it was a pretty quick shot of him.

    Here's something to help quiet your nerves:

    Hope that helps Ulik. And what no mention of Odin or Baldar who I think that is in the pic with the helmet.

  • ULIK

    No,I've seen that pic already. Those pants look like he's about to go out for a night of “Dancing with the Stars”. That's a bad look,too clean and not enough ruggedness. BTW that's supposed to Heimdall, he also looks too much like he's going to a special ceremony. Too much gold. Odin looks ok these other designs are very disappointing. I hope they make up for it in the acting.

  • Rick00770

    theyr wrong on the arrogant part, thor was a good character in comics , just troubled like spiderman, hollywood would screw up a junkyard, he,s my favorite, if they screw this up im saying to hell with all the rest, im waiting for a good movie, hope it is worthy of comic book,

  • Dedpool aka Jiinx

    Not the pic. The article. Read what someone who saw it firsthand said. It renewed my hope. And like i said about the lighting it makes a difference. And isnt Heimdal in gold in the comics. He was pretty gold in Hulk vs Thor
