Thor Movie Trailer

Here's the trailer for Marvel Studios' "Thor."

Thor was one of my favorite of the Marvel books, although the character isn’t one of the A-listers.  The movie version looks interesting, if a radical departure from the comics that I remember:

Daniel Hubschman has the description:

In the realm of superhero cinema 2011, Marvel Studios is bringing a plethora of characters to the big screen. The first to hit 3D and conventional theaters is Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Rene Russo, Idris Elba, Clark Gregg, Jamie Alexander and many, many more. Shakespearean expert Kenneth Branagh brings his unmatched command of drama to this tale of a disgraced warrior who gets a shot at redemption on Earth as he faces a cataclysmic threat from his own world.

It’s set to hit theaters May 6.

  1. I’m still upset they replaced Brian Blessed with Anthony Hopkins for the Odin role. I like Anthony Hopkins a lot, mind you, but Blessed would have been perfect.
