Hey geeks and geekettes (not exactly sure how to spell that one, but close enough)! Here’s something that seems to be making the rounds on all the geek sites, a teaser trailer for Marvel’s Thor movie. I was never really a fan of the Thor comics, but this looks decent. I might actually get my ass out this chair and go see it when it comes out… on May 6th, 2011. Here’s a plot synopsis that I found on IMDB.com:
Marvel Studios expands its film universe with a new type of superhero: THOR. This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, 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. Kenneth Branagh directs this fantasy epic which stars Australian actor Chris Hemsworth as the ancient Norse god, Tom Hiddleston as his evil brother Loki, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, a young woman who befriends Thor on Earth, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Thor’s father and king of Asgard. Expect to see agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., previously seen in ”Iron Man,” to make an appearance, further forshadowing the coming of The Avengers!
Here’s the trailer. Check it out and let us know what you think.
