First Trailer for Thor

I had to admit, I have mixed feelings about the upcoming movie Thor. I’m a fan of the Marvel comics character, partially because I’m a fanatic about Norse mythology.

But then I heard that Kenneth Branagh was directing, and though he has directed some good movies, they’ve mostly been Shakespeare works. How would that translate to an action superhero movie?

I also saw some early stills from the movie and I wasn’t that impressed with the costumes – they looked plastic in the stills.

But today Marvel released a teaser trailer for Thor. After watching it, I may be swaying back towards a bit excited. The visuals – both for Asgard and Earth – look well done, and I like that Natalie Portman is playing the love interest.

The trailer shows Thor being banished from Asgard by Odin, him being discovered by Portman and a bit of the battles between Thor and his brother Loki, and Thor and the Frost Giants.

Here’s the trailer. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo and Tom Hiddleston. It opens everywhere in 2D and 3D on May 6, 2011.

    Yeah I’m definitely looking forward to the Avengers – especially since Joss Whedon is helming it.

    I like it! The characters seem pretty true to their comic book origins, at least in the trailer.

    And I’ll probably like it even more when The Avengers movie is released and we see Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor all together.
