First Photo of Chris Hemsworth as Kenneth Branagh's Thor!
Everyone is going crazy this morning over this very first official photo from Marvel of our new hero Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder Thor in Kenneth Branagh's upcoming comic book movie Thor. This photo comes from Yahoo and is pretty much just a sleek close-up shot of the next Marvel superhero we'll see on the big screen next summer. This is officially our very first look at anything from the movie and I've got to say it's exactly what I was expecting but still exciting and perfect in terms of carrying over the design and look from the comics. I can't wait to see what he looks like with the winged helmet on and hammer, too!
This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe - from present day Earth to the mythical 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 and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, 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. Paramount has set a May 6th, 2011 summer release for Thor. I can't wait to see more! So what do you think of this first look at Marvel's Thor?
