If you stayed until the ending credits of "Iron Man 2," you got a glimpse of Thor's hammer, Mjolnir in the desert. They didn't say it was Thor's hammer but longtime fans of Marvel comics know Thor's magical weapon when they see it.
While it was a slightly predictable teaser with the new Thor movie coming out in 2011, it was pretty much a given that Marvel would throw in a plug for their next big franchise. And why not hype it up? The big-screen version of Thor looks pretty promising. Chris Hemsworth plays the title role of Thor, a Norse warrior god whose bull-headed actions spark an old war among the gods. As punishment, Thor's father Odin (Anthony Hopkins} casts him down to Earth in the body of a disabled medical student by the name of Donald Blake. Blake eventually remembers that he is Thor and vows to protect mankind from his evil brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Along the way, he befriends a beautiful med student, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) who helps him in his quest.
The cast looks stellar and the possible new logo (see above) makes me think that Marvel is really taking this one seriously. No trailers for the new Thor movie are available just yet, but with San Diego Comic Con just around the corner, you just know Marvel will whip out the big guns and show us the goods in late July. So far, there's just one image from the film available featuring Chris Hemsworth in full Thor regalia:
From the looks of it, Marvel is going with the new Thor look as seen in the comics rather than his classic costume. New Thor costumes are available now with this heavily-armored metallic look:
Even if you're not a fan of the new look, there are still classic Jack Kirby-styled Thor costumes available, too. Either way, there are plenty of options and probably even more new Thor costumes to be revealed soon for several of the characters. I don't know about you, but I'm eager to see what Loki will look like!!
