[Update: The Thor Trailer has been released!]

It’s been a big week for major sci-fi movie trailers with the launch of the first official teasers for Real Steel and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Tonight, we add another in the form of the first official trailer for Thor.

Marvel released a brand new Thor poster yesterday as a precursor this evening’s trailer reveal and to round off the beginning of the Thor marketing push, the tie-in Thor video game will be officially unveiled tomorrow at the Spike Video Game Awards.

Outside of some stills, toys and a magazine cover, the only real Thor footage we’ve seen is from the very early-in-production video shown to us at the Marvel Studios Comic-Con panel. That five-minute extended trailer leaked online but it didn’t last long. Tonight that all changes when we get our first official look at director Kenneth Branagh’s work with Marvel’s God of Thunder.

Until then, we have this  new poster which simply features Chris Hemsworth in full Thor armor, wielding the mighty Mjolnir.

You can’t easily judge a superhero’s costume from a still photo but to fans of the Thor books, it’s hard to believe that after so many years of reading off the page, that Thor is actually right there, red cape and all.

Thor represents the third superhero solo movie for the young Marvel Studios, after having introduced Iron Man and re-introduced Hulk. That only leaves Captain America before we can see them and others come together for The Avengers. And this is all just the beginning of the path down Marvel’s currently planned movie schedule up until 2017.

Check back in with Screen Rant soon and make sure to visit Game Rant for the action-packed Thor video game trailer. I saw lots of very cool concept art for the game and if you’re a fan of Asgard, it’s definitely something you’ll want to see.

Thor opens in North America May 6, 2011 and  in U.S. theaters and on April 29, 2011 for the UK.

  1. Cannot wait. Tom Hiddleston playing Loki will stand out in this film IMO. His interviews has shown that he’s the most dedicated out of the actors in this film.

  2. Ive been waiting 45 years for this movie. I guess I can mak it 35 more months. (Maybe)

    • Okay. I cant spell today. Make it 5 more months

  3. Bet he can crack walnuts with his hammer lol

    • Wouldn’t it now be pistachios?

  4. Despite my reservations this is probably my most anticipated film of 2011.

    The poster looks great though the Hammer looks a bit fake.

    Can’t wait for the official trailer. Other than the look of asgard and Odins god awful costume the movie looks great.

  5. Bring it! Marvel Studios FTW!


    • I knew you would say that Rickster…

  7. 35 more months? It comes out in less than a year.

  8. Love the arms in costume.

    • ditto… focused on that immediately and wanted to see how it moves and reflects in light and mist… not a very creative hammer though

  9. was never a big comic book fan as a kid, aside form spiderman for a spell, but realy looking forward this movie and defo cnt wait for the avengers.

  10. I can’t wait! Costume wise they seem to be following the comics a lot more then Cap(understandably so). I can’t wait to see some frost giants!

  11. i hope the film is great. but i would have liked the technology on AVATAR used on this film. with chris hemsworth as donald blake and a CGI version of THOR. anyone who has read the comic book for years knows THOR is way bigger then donald blake.. but we shall see..

  12. Despite the fact he has bulked up for the role, I still think Hemsworth is lacking the physcial build for the look just a bit like Routh lacked for Superman. Don’t agree with a CGI / motion picture style version of Thor at all and Triple H is too ugly looking. A Dolph Lundgren in his prime would have looked perfect for this. Poster does look good though and I think the hammer itself is the right size

    The leaked trailer showed quite some promise. I’m generally more interested in how they create the whole world of Asgard than how they fit the character in present day Earth. Being a massive fan of the Lord Of The Rings films (which is the best cinematic trilogy of all time – just in case anyone didn’t know) I love all the epic history and mythology of otehr realms and just hope we get a good maount of focus on Asgard. Same goes for the planet Oa in Green Lantern

    I still think they are rushing the Avengers film, especially if both Thor and Captain America flop. To be honest I don’t think all three big comic films in 2011 will be big box office smaashes, but Thor has the best chance of success being the first out the blocks.

    Just need to see that damn trailer now..

    • you are right, THOR has the better chance. CAPTAIN AMERICA is my favorite hero but the studio did badly by allowing joe johnston to direct it and not going with a mature actor with some acting chops that can go toe to toe with robert downey jr for the tension that builds up between IRON MAN and CAPTAIN AMERICA over a period of time.

  13. I was never a fan of Thor, but for some reason, this is a film I am very much excited about.

  14. @bull 22

    Yep completely agree with you on Captain America. I think Chris Evans is the wrong choice for the role, and my enthusiasm for him is diminished even further due to the fact that he was the Human Torch. Guess that rules out that character of any appearance in any Avengers movie.

    Not sure with Joe Johnston at the helm, what sort of tone they’re going for with this movie. I guess we’ll get a clearer idea once the a full trailer is released.

    • Human Torch wasn’t ever going to be The Avengers, no matter who played Cap. Fox has the rights to the Human Torch, not Marvel.

  15. After all these years, I’m finally going to find out how MJOLNIR is pronounced. The movie will be worth it to me just for that. Awesome.

    • classic commentary… seriously… nail on head

  16. Man that trailer was just as awesome as the one from Comic-con and it had some footage the other trailer did not, really awesome.

    It will be hard for the movie to to not be at least good based on what I’ve seen now and based on was involved (like the Director).

    I believe THOR will be to the SUMMER OF 2011 what THE DARK KNIGHT and IRON MAN were to there periods, fragging awesome.

  17. This looks VERY cool! I don’t know enough about the Thor universe (I just couldn’t get into the comics), but the movie looks cool. Plus, y’know, Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman. And Kenneth Branagh.

  18. Not a great trailer, but far better than Green Lantern.
