Thor Wants His Hammer — NOW

16 Comments

It’s curious that we have yet to see a poster for Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor”, though I suspect something is coming out of Comic Con over the weekend, possibly even a trailer. The film seems to have finished up production, and the pics are already flying out (such as this new one showing Thor and his hammer via USAToday), so I don’t think a trailer, or at least a teaser trailer, is very far behind. Until then, here’s a new “Thor” pic.

Thor spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

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.

    Holy shit Hemsworth is ripped! And I haven't followed the book in years, but I'm guessing the movie isn't going with a disabled Dr. Donald Blake

    Nope. Going with a cross between ultimate and oldschool. He's depowered with little or no memory of who he is. And yeah he's huge. Anyone complaining he isn't big enough needs to see this pic. And Mjolnir looks heavy as hell. This and the pic from the Hall of Odin has my hopes up again.

    I know the dude really did get in shape for the film.

    His costume make his arms look smaller then they actually are.
