New Release Date For Thor Movie

Posted by Grey Sunday, January 10, 2010

Thor is coming a little earlier than originally scheduled.
With Spider-man's release date set to be delayed due to its villains problem, the release date of May 6th, 2011 has officially been handed over to Thor. I have always opined that the 2011 is getting a little jam-packed with Marvel Superhero movies, as Spider-man 4, Thor, and The First Avenger: Captain America releasing one month after each other from May, 2011.

The casting for "Thor" has been somewhat surprising, as we witnessed ongoing reports of actors of diverse background joining the roster. While the choice of casting relatively unknown actors, Chris Hemsworth, in the eponymous role, and Tom Hiddleston as another major role, Loki, are perfectly understandable, reports of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Renee Russo as Frigga, has proven that the film certainly had excessive budget. Nonetheless, the announcement of Ray Stevenson, Tadanobu Asano and Stuart Townsend as Volstagg, Hogun and Fandral, the collective Warriors Three, seemed to be an absolute waste of talent, unless the roles of the Asgardians turned out to be much more greater than expected.

Below is the official statement from Marvel.

Marvel Studios announced that it has moved up the North American release date of the highly anticipated feature film "Thor" from May 20, 2011 to May 6, 2011, a coveted date that kicks off the summer. "Thor" will be directed by Kenneth Branagh and will be released in theatres worldwide via Paramount Pictures.

The new May 6, 2011 release date for "Thor" follows "Iron Man 2" kicking off this summer on May 7, 2010. After "Thor," "The First Avenger: Captain America" hits theaters on July 22, 2011, and "The Avengers" opens another summer on May 4, 2012.

In "Thor," Chris Hemsworth portrays the title character with Tom Hiddleston in the role of Thor’s brother Loki, and Natalie Portman as Jane. Additionally, the studio has cast Academy Award® winning actor Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Renee Russo as Frigga, Ray Stevenson as Volstagg, Tadanobu Asano as Hogun, Stuart Townsend as Fandral, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Idris Elba as Heimdall as well as Colm Feore, Kat Dennings and award-winning actor Stellan Skarsgard.

The screenplay for THOR was penned by Mark Protosevich as well as Ashley Miller, Zak Stentz and Don Payne. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige will produce the film. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Marvel Studio’s Co-President, Louis D'Esposito, will executive produce.

The epic adventure THOR 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.
