Thor’s Mighty Hammer Doth Hops on Spidey’s Troubles

10 Comments

With news that “Spider-Man 4″ is grinding to a halt after Sam Raimi and Sony couldn’t agree on a villain for the fourth movie, thereby potentially delaying its start date and, subsequently, its May 6, 2011 release date, Marvel has moved up “Thor” by two weeks from its originally scheduled May 20, 2011 release date. Meanwhile, Disney did a little of its own shuffling by setting the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, subtitled “On Stranger Tides” in “Thor’s” old May 20, 2011 date. Sony, for its part, says not to be too hasty, because they could very well iron out their differences with Raimi and get this puppy into dock by its original May 6, 2011 date.

So what does this all mean? Well, you’ll get “Thor” two weeks early, and Disney is apparently sure enough that “Pirates 4″ will sail forward they’ve already set a date.

Haha, that's right, mortal, Thor is not aboveth cribbing your release date!

    I have to say that particular costume Thor is wearing is so godam badass!! I hope that’s what he’ll be wearing in the movie. Sony and Raimi so smart… but so stupid at the same time!!!

      Yeah when Thor was returning to comics and they were like, we’re revamping him, I was like “Say what now?” But then I saw it and it made sense. It harkens to the classic but updates it with a LOTR like look. The Ultimate Alliance 2 look is pretty badass too. It’s basically I realistic version of his original look, except that the shirt is actualy leather armor with metal plates, and such.

    if they will leave this whole faiy tale where it belongs, that being Valhalla or whatever, and not attempt dragging it into the REAL world, it might make for good saturday morning cartoon fare…otherwise, it is going to reek so bad they actually will smell it up there…wherever they are up there…

    well i think that a thor movie will be bad ass considering the other marvel movies have made there way like ironman and spiderman even the five xmen movies they had out. Thor god of lighting if any thing they should have him in the same clothing as they did in the hulk vs thor. the only question is who honestly can play thor if they do who will be the villain loki???
