Thor

Another member has been added to the impressive cast of Thor in the form of Adriana Barraza, the Oscar-nominated actress from Babel. We know only that the talented Barraza will be playing one of the humans on Earth.

In other Thor news, principal photography is about to begin on my most anticipated Marvel Studios film and we’ve been hearing nothing but great things about the cast, the costumes and the epic sets they’ve constructed to bring Asgard to life.

Adding to what we’ve already heard, Iron Man and Iron Man 2 directed Jon Favreau tweeted today that he got to walk around the set of Kenneth Branagh’s production of Thor and was highly impressed.

“A walked through some of the Thor sets that are being built. They’re pretty amazing.”

What I would give to walk around this set…

Marvel

Marvel is suing the heirs to Jack Kirby’s estate over rights to key Marvel characters such as the X-Men, Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. Kirby of course created these characters alongside Stan Lee and his heirs are attempting to get the rights to said characters reverted back to their estate.

Don’t worry, the characters won’t go anywhere and this is just a money thing.

On the film side of things, things are looking great for Marvel Studios and their upcoming projects although we can’t say the same for Sony. We hope next to start getting some major news for The First Avenger: Captain America.

Thor and Spider-Man 4 are current both scheduled for May 5, 2011 release but count on Peter Parker coming later in the year. Iron Man 2 kicks off this summer with a May 7, 2010 release.
