Two New Clips and Images from the Animated Thor: Tales of Asgard

3 Comments

Marvel has released two more clips from their upcoming direct-to-DVD original animated movie “Thor: Tales of Asgard”, which tells the tale of a young Thor and Loki before, you know, they grew up and became enemies and tried to kill each other and such. The film is due out on DVD and Blu-ray on May 17th, which is about two weeks after the live-action big-budget movie debuts in theaters.

Before he ever lifted his might hammer…Fantastic journeys beckon from the mysterious nine realms. Places of dark mists and fiery voids. Of winged creatures and giants in the ice. And of the most alluring quest of all – the search for the legendary Lost Sword of Surtur. Hungry for adventure, Thor secretly embarks on the journey of a lifetime, joined by his loyal brother Loki, whose budding sorcery equips him with just enough magic to conjure up trouble, along with the Warriors Three – a band of boastful travelers reluctant to set sail on any adventure that might actually be dangerous. But what starts out as a harmless treasure hunt quickly turns deadly, and Thor must now prove himself worthy of the destiny he covets by saving Asgard itself.

Sam Liu, who directed “All-Star Superman” and will be co-directing the upcoming “Batman: Year One” for DC, directs “Tales of Asgard”.

    I think the similarities between this and the opening of “Thor” is kinda cool, but it was no reason to hold the film back a year. It would’ve been better to put this out last year and work on a full fledged Thor animated film for release with the live action one.

      I agree, and was that supposed to be The Vallyrie? I can’t get sound on my computer. I think that’s Malekith standing near Odin or one of his kin. The stills look Disney-ish. Not bad.

        I have an issue though, they have Cam Clarke doing the voice of Thor, but all I’m gonna hear is Prince Adam from the 2002 Masters of The Universe. Lol.

        Sent on the go.
