THOR Movie

    Next May, Thor will touch down in Midgard only to battle all forces of otherworldy evil and encounter the allure of true in the unlikely form of a mortal woman. Possibly the most ambitious of comic book movies, the unusual combination of fantasy and superheroics will make the Thor film stand out against what moviegoers have seen up until now. Directed correctly by thespian Kenneth Branagh, this could be a real knock-out or it could be a glorified He-Man movie. I’m hoping for the former to be true.
    Marvel Studios has finally released an official plot synopsis for director Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, the live-action adaptation of the classic Marvel Comic book. Though previous reports seemed to indicate that the majority of the movie would take place on the extra-dimensional realm of Asgard, which Thor and the other Norse gods call home, from the synopsis it appears that most of the action will actually be taking place on earth.

    Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, Thor, which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie 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.The look of Thor has worried many fans, but apparently the film    
    will take inspiration from the current monthly series. Surprisingly, the costume looks amazing. We could tell early on from the production sketches of costumes and sets that this was going to be something good. It’s just beautiful and the designers really took it to heart. If you look at some of the more recent Thor comics that are out now, the tone and the costuming is that. It’s basically, the way you read the comics now, they’re updated the way they are now and that’s how the costumes are. I think everyone is going to be very, very happy. Nothing looks cheesy or cheap. Everything looks like it’s real. Everything looks like it came from that period. And everything looks right on all the actors. Nothing looks stupid. I guess that’s the best word. It’s just jaw-dropping even to the Marvel executives.
The Thor film has also been confirmed as taking place before the formation of the Avengers, but after the battle between the Hulk and the Abomination in New York City.In terms of time-line, Thor is set after The Incredible Hulk. In the script we make mention of gamma radiation and one of the scientist characters, I think Stellan Skarsgard’s Professor Ford recalls, “There was brilliant scientist (Bruce Banner). He was a genius with gamma radiation and somehow S.H.I.E.L.D. made him disappear.” So Thor’s story would take place after The Incredible Hulk.

Of course no Thor movie could be complete without the evil Loki…
    This movie is as much an origin story for Loki as it is for Thor and he’s not only the hero’s nemesis but his brother. How do you deal with a situation like that where the very person who is trying to destroy you is your adopted brother? In the script, Thor is basically banished to Earth because he’s arrogant and proud and must learn what it is to live among mortals. And while the cat’s away, the mouse will play. While he’s gone, Loki starts discovering things about himself, including his desire to be all powerful. He wants to be as well loved as Thor and that jealousy starts creating these complications. “Why can’t I be the ruler? Why am I always in his shadow?” So he starts developing those feelings while Thor’s gone. It’s a very good script with pretty much half of the movie in Asgard and the other half on Earth. I think people will be pleased with the way it unfolds.

So what happens next? The internet is all a buzz with the recent releaser of the new Iron Man 2 trailer, but nothing has been seen of the Asgardian hammer-slinging deity. It seems that this summer fans will finally get to see the goods and after that it will be a roller-coaster ride to 2012′s Avengers!
[a trailer will be seen...] Probably at Comic Con. The scheduled release is date is May 6, 2011. I think that’s the actual release date, handed down from Marvel. They could put it in front of the new Iron Man 2 movie, but that’s this May and a little too soon. Marvel wants to release the film exactly a year after Iron Man 2. The release is almost 365 days later. And then Captain America in July 2011 and The Avengers will be the following year, 2012. That’s what they’re trying to do, line them up like that. May of every year, there will be a new Marvel movie out.
