1st Image Of Chris Hemsworth As Thor; Opens May 06th, 2011

Just kidding!  That’s not Chris Hemsworth as Thor.  See more information below.

There’s lots of great Thor information coming out.  And we’ve got all that’s available right here!


Marvel Comics legend Thor will hit movie screens on May 06th, 2011.  The film, directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins and Idris Elba has a lot of great information that has leaked and we’ve compiled all of it for you here.

First, there were the images of Thor‘s hammer crashing to Earth and Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) from the Iron Man series speaking to someone near the crater where it fell.  These images are really grainy and come from the end of Iron Man 2.  The rumors were that this scene was supposed to have been Captain America’s shield originally, but was switched to Thor‘s hammer.  Perhaps there’s two versions?

Then there was the on-set image of Thor villain The Destroyer that was leaked.  Look at the picture below – what the hell is The Destroyer standing on?  It looks like he’s got his feet wrapped in blue Snuggies.  It’s the desert! How could his feet be cold?  LOL

This is Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

Paramount Pictures’ Official Synopsis for Thor

The film follows 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.
