Thor: Final Preview

Posted by Grey

For the uninformed, the God of Thunder will be among us puny mortal come this April 28th. Will the God of Thunder be denied or will lightning struck at the box office? The Daily Zombies, in our final big blow-out preview of Thor complete with a consolidation of all the posters, trailers, and stills from the film, give our shot at answering that one.

Is the Summer big enough for a more than half a dozen of comic book superhero blockbusters? We will finally witnessed glimpses of the answer to the question that was first raised not more than three years ago. Marvel Studio's Thor will be the first such films to hit the theaters, and will no doubt be the first to test the purported theory of superhero films fatigue.

Making its world-première on April 21st in Australia, Thor is set to be released in the United States on May 6th, while we here in Singapore will get to see the film tonight (April 28th). The live-action adaptation of Marvel's much-beloved take on the Norse god of thunder, which is in turns based on the mythological deity of the same name, Thor is directed by Kenneth Branagh, with a diversely stellar ensemble cast featuring Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Tadanobu Asano, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander, Tom Hiddleston and Clark Gregg.

Below is the official synopsis of the film:

Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that 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.

Will the God of Thunder be denied? Being the first superhero to test the audience, Thor is however distinctly different from the usual superhero fare. As mentioned earlier, the eponymous character, co-created by editor-plotter Stan Lee, scripter Larry Lieber, and penciller Jack Kirby in 1962, was based on the Thor of Norse mythology. Being a god banished to the mortal world to be taught humility, Thor is remarkably different from the conventional superheroes. And with his unique heritage, the cast of characters eventually featured in the comic books are incredibly diverse, ranging from scientists, aliens, to numerous pantheons of medieval gods. Due to this peculiar nature of the comic, Thor has been notably successful in providing readers an alternate take of superhero genre, spliced with elements of the mythological and medieval.

In Kenneth Branagh's take on the film, we expect a cosmic superhero epic spliced with Shakespearean overtones, adapting the God of Thunder's path from being a lost, banished God, to becoming a key member of the Avenger (set to be depicted in the upcoming Avengers film directed by Joss Whedon). The film also boasts a stellar cast with two notable Academy Award winners (Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman), and an assorted ensemble of actors from Japan's Tadanobu Asano (浅野 忠信), to Australia's Chris Hemsworth as the eponymous character, Thor.

Incidentally, Conan O'Brien decidedly took some digs at Marvel Studio's casting of Thor by relatively unknown Chris Hemsworth last week. While the insinuation that Hemworth's casting are considerably effeminate are in fact rather unjustifiable, it does raise concerns on the actor's creditability. Check out these video clips where Conan hit hard at the project.

While it is true that had it not for the live-action full feature film on Marvel's resident god of thunder, Chris Hemsworth might just be forever remembered as either A) the older brother of Miley Cyrus's main squeeze. Fortunately for him and for us, that is not the case; B) the guy who married Elsa Pataky; or C) the big guy in the Australian soap opera Home and Away, based on what we have seen from the trailers of the film, his performance does seemed adequate to pull the role off.

We here at The Daily Zombies do see a general positive glow over the project that is quite unlike our earlier half-hopeful projection for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch. While we don't really expect the film to be as entertaining yet relevant like Jon Favreau's first shot at Iron Man or as awe-inspiring and deeply magnetic as Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, Thor should be more than adequate to be worthy your Summer box-office popcorn.

Speaking of trailers, let's take a look at the trailers for the film that have been released thus far before moving on to the promotional images and production stills from the film.

In the meantime, Marvel Studio has done some tremendous work with the promotion of the film, in particularly the posters. Here's a massive round-up of all the posters released for the film thus far. The character series, in particular, is awesome, especially when you compared them to the pathetic Photoshop disasters in the making for Fox's X-Men: First Class.

Courtesy of The Daily Blam, we noticed these these new promotional images presented by Walmart, complete with details on the various Asgardian characters presented in the film, along with some stills.
