Thor and Captain America in 3D, First Look at the Gods of Thor

As if you probably couldn’t have predicted it by now, but the LATimes has made it official: Marvel Studios’ “Captain America” and “Thor” will both be going 3D. In the case of “Captain America”, it certainly makes a lot of sense, what with all the opportunity for shield-slinging action (“It’s coming right at you!”) Not so much with “Thor”, though I suppose the hammer coming at you might make for a couple of good gimmicky effects.

Unfortunately for all you 3D fans out there, both films will be converted to 3D in post, so yes, you’ll most likely be paying extra for absolutely nothing but the privilege of paying extra to see a movie you could otherwise have seen just as fine, if not better, in 2D (ala “The Last Airbender” and “Clash of the Titans”). Hey, whatever floats your boat, kids.

Besides that non-news news, the Times also gives us this brand spanking new image of the Gods in Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor”, featuring Chris Hemsworth as Thor on one side, Tom Hiddleston as Loki on the other, and Anthony Hopkins as the big poppa, Odin, in the middle. Dig the golden eyepatch, kids.

“Thor” arrives in 2011, starring Hemsworth, Hopkins, Hiddleston, and Natalie Portman, while “Captain America: The First Avenger” arrives the same year from director Joe Johnston, and starring Chris Evans as the shield-slinging Avenger.

Both films will lead into Marvel’s uber super power team movie, Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”.

    I like the homage to the “Kirby” style but remember Kirby made them have that futuristic look but he combined it with leather,fur,horns,etc. This design looks great but looks TOO sci-fi without any feel of “Vikingness”. Thor,Loki,Hogun,Sif,and Baldur(still unknown who was cast) better be wearing those helmets in battle. I can understand not wearing them all the time but Vikings always wore those helmets when in battle and on special occasions or ceremonies.

    Oh I agree 100% it's iconic and integral to the look of the characters and world. I was actually shocked that they went so sci-fi. I was expecting something along the lines of his Ultimate Alliance 2 gear. It was classic, but realistic and easily could have worked. “Wizard” magazine also did a great real life rendition of the costume on a cover. But I like the designs I really do, they evoke the idea that this isn't norse mythology, but Marvel's take on it. I mean Asgard itself until lately has always bordered on the futuristic. Now the comics are taking a step back to bring it closer to mythology, which I like but the movie is based more on classic Thor's look.

    Any movie having Anthony Hopkins in it will be a GREAT MOVIE.
    I'm a big fan of Anthony Hopkins and to see him as the Sky Father ODIN is a treat!!!

    But why is ODIN disabled having only one eye???
    Isn't gods suppose to be “omnipotent” all powerful capable healing themselves???
    Gods should be perfect, without any flaws or inabilities, because they are considered omnipotents.

    If Odin has disability, and incapable of healing himself, then it contradicts to his omnipotent stature, and such title should be stripped off from him officially, agree???

    Odin gave up his eye for knowledge and power I believe. It's not a disability at all but a noble sacrifice.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the movies…..Iron Man, Spiderman, The Hulk (Ed Norton) & The Fantastic Four. The first Iron Man was outstanding and the Spiderman movies seem to get better as they progress. Here’s hoping that Thor & Cap are done as well or better. I think the Avengers movies may be to much of a bite for a studio to chew properly. Good luck Marvel Studios…………………do the faithful proud!
