On Saturday at Comic-Con 2010, Marvel Studios brought the house down with one of the biggest and most exciting panels in Comic-Con history. Not only was it the first time we witnessed footage from The First Avenger: Captain America and Thor, but we met the core cast behind The Avengers.
Captain America had only been shooting for 8 days so we didn’t get to see much, but Thor has been in production since early this year and we had the chance to watch a full five minute trailer, showcasing nearly all of the characters of the film in many scenes both on Earth and in Asgard. Now, you can watch that footage too and see what had fans going crazy over the weekend.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh and written by Ashley Miller and Don Payne, Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo, Clark Gregg, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, Tadanobu Asano, Joshua Dallas and Joe Gatt.
Watch and enjoy while you can:
UPDATE: Since Viacom screwed us on YouTube by reporting us for a copyright violation of a video WE shot of the public Tranformers 3 Chicago set, we’ve decided to pull this Thor video since it was not officially released by the studio.
Notice how much better the costumes look and work in live-action as opposed to those Thor stills which released prior to Comic-Con. We also get to see the helmets of the main characters which also had many worried.
I totally dig the aesthetic and costume designs now that I see how they look, especially in the Asgardian locations. The Warriors Three, Sif, Loki, Odin all look good after seeing this trailer and most importantly, Chris Hemsworth totally nails Thor. He is the God of Thunder.
Is Thor something you’re looking forward to now?
