    by dude_gimme_tabs

    Is that Thor retrieving his hammer from a transplanted piece of ground from the dig site at the end of Iron Man 2?

    Damn, That Dude Is Ripped

    by SupermanIsMyGod

    I remember hearing he was cast and thinking "Kirk's dad is the Asgardian God of Thunder? Ehhhhhhh..." But he's filled out a bit since then. I still can't believe we're getting Captain America AND Thor in one glorious summer. Looks great! Doesn't it look like he's having trouble lifting the hammer rather than hitting that thing? Is Thor no longer worthy to lift mighty Mjolnir?

    I was just thinking the same thing Thanos

    by Grammaton Cleric Binks

    I haven't followed how the movie is going but the picture is obviously not old school Marvel with Donald Blake picking up the hammer and becoming Thor.

  • July 21, 2010, 8:47 a.m. CST


    by dude_gimme_tabs

    So how/where does this fit into the Avengers universe and timeline that is being established by the Marvel films thus far?<p> Does Loki steal the hammer, hide it and then SHIELD found it as per IM2, and Thor has to go get it back early in the film?

  • July 21, 2010, 8:48 a.m. CST

    Well the dude looks like Thor

    by Kenny_Fucking_Powers

    Not sure how the movie will be but this guy certainly looks the part. Guy got jacked for the role.

    Should have been Conan...

    by BrooseTheScharuk

    ...I thought so when I saw him in Perfect Getaway. Of course, that would mean that he was starring in a guaranteed shitty movie, so maybe he's better off where he is. Would have been great in the role, though. Especially if they were actually doing Howard's Conan.

  • July 21, 2010, 9:04 a.m. CST

    Hey--does Mjolnir have the tong?

    by Abominable Snowcone

    I haveynt seen an up-close imyge of the mighty hammer yet, but there'd better be a tong at the end of the hylt for the Son of Odyn to verily swing it arouynd like a rotore of the gods and fling it at mortal fools and that gamma-bombarded jolly greene giant

    that maybe the hammer is stuck where ever it landed and nobody could move it so they built a facility around it. Thor is just now retreving it. <br> Can anyone recall what position the hammer was in at the end of im2.

    by AsimovLives

    ... that the majority of the movie will happen in Asgard. It will not. Most of it will be on Earth, for sure. You can count on that. If you dream of a movie mostly set in Argard, you are setting yourselves for a disapointment, i'm sure. Sure, it would be cooler if what you want would be so, but it would make the movie so much, much more expensive. If this Thor movie proves pretty sucessful at the box office, then maybe the sequel cna have a fatter budget and more Argard stuff. Unless they pull a Abram's Trek and as he destroyed Vulcan in his movie, in the Thor movie they will pull a Ragnarök on Asgard and definatly destroy it to never been seen again for this movies.

    its possible we may get more Asgard than we

    by southafricanguy

    think Asi, I largely agree with you that they will have it mostly on earth to save money, but Thor does have a 150 million $ budget, not exactly small potatoes. And surely they are saving money by filming it in Arizona for the earth stuff? I mean, its just desert right? How much would they have to build for fucks sake? So maybe they will have more for Asgard? At least I hope so....

    The good thing about the set-on-Earth part

    by kevred

    is that that's where he fights the Destroyer!<p>And, hopefully, they didn't build all that crazy Asgard stuff for just a few moments of screen time. The concept art from yesterday looks like an Asgardian battle, too - rainbow bridge, or something apocalyptic with the royal palace? I guess it could br the desert too (with that super-starry sky), but something more cosmic would be nice.

    @The Founder - good call!

    by kevred

    I bet you're right about that - this is probably where he "becomes Thor" again. I was trying to figure out what the mound of earth was - they must have dug all the way around it, but couldn't move the area of earth connected to the hammer.<p>Maybe, at the instant of this scene, the Destroyer itself is rampaging somewhere nearby. T'would be cool.

  • July 21, 2010, 10:50 a.m. CST


    by AsimovLives

    Well, i think the Asgard stuff, however small it might be, will be a black hole of money for the budget. In this movie, i'm not supried they needed a 150 million dollars budget. I would even beleive if they claim it wasn't enough and they had to cut corners. As for the rest, well, i think we are understimating what will happen on Earth. i don't think it will just be Thor as the human guy mopping around his lost destiny and trying to pork Natalie Portman, if you know what i mean. I think there will also be epic stuff set on Earth, and not just in Arizona. And, if by chance, any of the Argardians come down to Earth to help Thor kick ass, and if there will be hellish demons from hell trying to get Thor on Earth, then you can fights on urban settings destroying whole streets. And even if it's a field battle in the desert agaisnt an army unit, that's still big stuff full of SFX. Expensive SFX because those will need photorealistic CGI. Which are expensive like hell. In fact, if anything, i think they are being pretty conservative with the budget. This baby screams epicness. but then again, Branagh was always a very savvy filmmaker concerning budgets, and he always mannaged to pull off big ass epic imagery with limited budgets. He's very, very good with a budget. And you bet the studios know this.

    southafricanguy and all you cimic geeks

    by AsimovLives

    I'd liek to aks you guys if you can answer me about something that has been a mystery for me for two decades already. I'd really appreciate the help.<br><br>You seen, when i was a kid, in the early 80s i believe, i read this Thor comic which started by telling the norse creation myth. It started with the seeding of Yggdrasil and the birth of the first giants. Then the story became about a huge battle between the argardians and some evil forces, and the goddess Hel had an important part, i don't remember if she was the story's main villain or if she was just the guardian of Hell which Thor had to go through on a quest. The comic was a multi-part story, and i had the first part, but never got hold of the rest of the stor,y and then i lost the comic and never figured out which issues it belong. Do you guys remember any of that, and if so, cna you help me figure out what was this Thor story i read so long ago? Thanks in advance.

    by MakNeil

    <P>Point well taken about Jon Favreau, but then again he did direct Zathura, which showed that he can handle effects-heavy films while not neglecting story.</P> <P>Kenneth Branagh, by the same token, has not handled–as far as I am aware–anything of the sort (short of the aforementioned Frankenstein, and we know how that went).</P> <P>Does that mean that he cannot do it? Of course not, though I am not sure I would be all that comfortable investing that kind of money in him.</P> <P>And I don't mean to imply that just because Frankenstein didn't work that he shouldn't be given another chance at another big-budget film, though as I said I am leery because, while I can see him approach the 'courtly' aspects of Asgard in an authoritative and convincing manner, I worry if he perhaps will get lost in the 'Shakespearian' aspects of the production, neglecting the simple, human elements.</P>

    I've been pretty happy with the pics I've seen so far with this movie. The Director has acting chops the size of a New York ribeye, all the casting seems dead-on and I got a tear in my eye to see that there was actual set work being done as opposed to just CGI'ing something, for the love of god can we have some old-school filmaking craft? I'm looking forward to it and I cut my teeth on the King Kirby days.

    by Anita Hummer

    the moment that Thor regains his godly identity, having proven his worth in mortal form. Movie starts in Asgard, Thor fucks things up with his arrogance, gets banished to Midgard (earth) to learn humility and is unable to pick up his hammer until his lesson is learned, sheild constructs enclosure around hammer, thor works construction for a while, finds his hammer, sneaks in and gets it back to fight Loki and whatever Asgardian baddies he brings to earth to Fuck with our hero. Thor saves the day. Nick Fury buys him a Royal with cheese and introduces him to RDJ where mead is consumed and wenches are violated. The End.

    $150m not really that high, MakNeil

    by TheHumanBurrito

    $150m is what the studio roughly spent on Incredible Hulk and the first Iron Man, with the second one costing more. It's actually a pretty standard big effects movie budget. A BIG budget movie is a $200+ million movie like Spidey 2 and 3, X3, Transformers, Pirates, etc.

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    I saw that film after it was released in the stores, and was really taken aback at the quality of the entire film, from characters (he directs children pretty well!) to pacing and framing of action scenes. <p> And you're right about Branagh. His strength is also his weakness. Since he does a lot of Shakespearean and Theater work, I suspect he works in a more compact, enclosed framework as far as staging and dialogue--which, as you said, makes good for the "courtly" aspects, but will be difficult for large-scale scenes. <p> But I think the positive X-factor is the man's apparent enthusiasm for the job, and his obvious desire to try a style of film outside his comfort zone. <p> At the end of the day your reservations are utterly valid. As I have never been a fan of Thor I'm more ambivalent as to the big picture--but I like seeing Branagh get work.

    Are the Stoned Men from Saturn in this?

    by cookylamoo

    Far out!

  • July 21, 2010, 5 p.m. CST


    by smackfu

    Let me try to explain it. When you look at a picture of a dog, and you can see it's junk, does that bother you? Probably not in the least. And the reason why, is unless you're a beastiality freak, a dog's genitals are sexually neutral to you. You make no sexual connection with seeing that image at all, because you're not attracted to dogs. The same should be with seeing a naked (or even a sweaty muscular guy pulling a hammer out of a rock), it should be completely sexually neutral to you as a guy. That's the way looking at other dudes is for guys that are *actually* heterosexual. So if you're looking at another dude, and get an icky 'gay' feeling from it, that means that in your mind, the body of another man is not sexually neutral. If you weren't attracted to men on some level, looking at Thor up their would be the same as looking at a ripped Doberman. It would cause no reaction, negative or positive, it would simply be a picture of a dude.

    by DanielPlainviewOnVacationInBoston

    Thor gets kicked out of Asgard by Odin for his arrogance. Thus him in the human clothes. They aren't doing Donald Blake. This is Thor retrieving Mjolnir from the same spot it was in Iron Man 2 (They were digging it out and they threw this building over it, as only those deemed worthy can lift the hammer). How hard is that?

    How do they do that, indeed!

    by stwolf

    I remember reading once that Tobey Maguire underwent approximately six months of intense body sculpting just to enable him to pull off the shirtless post-bite scene. And I happened to be with my sister when she was watching some Oprah thing on the werewolf guy in Twilight, who said that he had to eat lots of beef every day during what was apparently a similar, months-long body sculpting venture. I heard the same thing from Hugh Jackman, and it certainly seems apparent that whoever this guy is who's playing Thor has undergone something similar. I wish the middle-class who live outside of Hollywood could somehow undergo that same training. Whoever their trainers are certainly know what they're doing. It *almost* makes me a little bitter to know that the actors were paid millions of dollars to essentially undergo something that made them so much better sculpted.

    Stallone Blames Batman for killing Action Stars!

    by theycallmemrtibbs

    Back in the 1980s, they were the biggest stars in Hollywood, both in terms of box-office receipts and bicep circumference. But the glory days of the brawny action heroes -- Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Van Damme, and the like -- eventually faded. In their place, a new breed of '90s star took over: younger, leaner, and nowhere near as macho. By decade's end, Keanu Reeves was a huge action star (shudder to think). <p> Where did it all go wrong? According to an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Sylvester Stallone puts the blame squarely on the caped shoulders of one comic book hero. <p> "It was the first 'Batman' movie," Stallone told the Times, in reference to the 1989 movie adaptation starring Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader. He went on to say, "The action movies changed radically when it became possible to Velcro your muscles on," a clear dig at how the trim Keaton was encased in a sculpted Batsuit for the film. Stallone joked, "I wish I had thought of Velcro muscles myself... "I didn't have to go to the gym for all those years." <p> Stallone adds that the director Tim Burton's stylish take on the superhero story changed what audiences expected from an action flick: "It was the beginning of a new era. The visual took over. The special effects became more important than the single person. That was the beginning of the end."

    Thats interesting tibbs

    by leo54304

    Thanks for that info. I sort of agree with Sly but he's forgetting an important thing. The tastes of the public change and so genres. For example: the cowboy movies reigned king for years but were gradually replaced by war movies. Technolgy also will always have an impact. Movies which dominated the visual entertainment landscape was laid low by the advent of tv's in peoples households. As far visuals and special effects they've always been around. Its just the technology changed so they became cheaper and easier to put into a movie. So that that the mano stuff SLy excelled in was forced to take a back seat to the action sequences we now are accustomed to.

    To me Balder seems the reluctant warrior type. It was what he was born to do but its not something he takes pleasure in doing. I get a sense of sadness in Balder that I think Clive could tap into.

    That destroyer photo is impressive

    by leo54304

    In height I'm sure he stands over Thor easily. Very menacing. Will be interesting to see how much movement it has. Also if has the disintegrator beam as in comics. I think they'll just have him use brute force and skip the beam as it might not translate well to the big screen.

    Arnie talked about how he prepared for T2

    by leo54304

    to play an android. I forget the details but he mad an effort to mechanize every moment he did. The simple tilting of the head, way he would/grab/punch something he tried to do in as a machine. If you watch his personal combats with the other Ts thats the way the destroyer should be presented when fighting Thor. Hope they give enough screen time to the destroyer and show how powerful it is.

    My theory on the photo

    by leo54304

    Its in the SHIELD camp and the mound he pulling mjolnir out of is the ground where it landed. SHIELD dug a pit around the hammer leaving the ground under it alone. Reason for water is storm is building and rain starting as Thor comes close to and finally in contact with the hammer. When he finally pulls it out big lightning/thunder effects result possibly. This is a copy from my earlier post on this but thought you might be interested.

    You're right its an excalibur thing

    by leo54304

    Maybe Odins ravens might appear on earth

    by leo54304

    According to myth, Odins ravens were his eyes to the nine worlds. When Thor is banished to midgard, Odin might send them to follow Thor so Odin can watch his sons attempt at redemption. Another way Odin might keep track of Thor is to have a scene at the rainbow bridge standing shoulder to shoulder with the all seeing Heimdall for the same purpose.

    Omitting Balder seems like an odd choice

    by kevred

    I suppose they want to avoid character overload, and don't want to just cast a random small-name actor to fill the space if it could become a more prominent character later (requiring a bigger-name actor). So maybe it does make sense, especially since Balder seemed to quite often be off doing his own thing in the comic.

    Maybe saving Balder for 2d movie?

    by leo54304

    Your post hits it on the head kevred:character overload. That is the bane of SH movies. Introducing him in the 2d movie saves time in first and allows something new in the 2d. If they do introduce Balder hope they mention he Thors sword brother and Sifs brother. Maybe in first movie, Odin has him on a perilous mission and in second Thor gets involved.
