'Thor' definitely has some anger issues -- EXCLUSIVE photo

Thor-movieImage Credit: Zade Rosenthal/Marvel StudiosThor (Chris Hemsworth) is different from other Marvel superheroes. “Most Marvel stories are about ordinary people becoming extraordinary,” explains Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige. “Thor is an already extraordinary individual.” But while he may be a mythic god of thunder with a seriously powerful hammer, as you can see in this exclusive image, the guy’s also a hothead. In director Kenneth Branagh’s 3-D epic, his all-seeing father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) banishes him to Earth to learn humility.

    • BFD

      It’s BRANAGH. You’re an entertainment magazing. GET THE FLIPPIN’ SPELLING CORRECT!

      • Jeff

        pot this is kettle : it’s a magazine not a magazing

      • Tarq

        Some people are idiots.

        Seriously, you can’t make this sh*t up.

  • Odin

    reboot, please.

    • Radu Ciobanu

      Ha ha, well said. Anyway, I sure hope it won’t suck. Because if it does, The Avengers movie will probably suck too. And then the second Avengers movie, and the second Captain America movie, and the third Iron Man movie, etc. etc. You get the point.

      • paul

        Yeah Radu – you make sense. If The Hulk sucked then Iron Man 1 and 2 was gonna suck too. (moron.)

      • Radu Ciobanu

        @paul: You do realize that all these next movies are going to be connected, right? If you get a lame Thor this time around, how are you going to make him better for an Avengers movie?

        Or maybe you’re right, actually. Daredevil sucked, but Elektra was an “awesome” movie!

      • paul

        @Radu: Unless EVERY one of those movies has the same writer, director, cast and crew there’s NO WAY to predict how good one will be based on another. If Seth Rogen was hired to write and star in all of them I’d agree with your premise – otherwise it’s completely unsupportable.

      • liz

        I am excited for the Avengers film!! Whedon!?? yes please.

      • Steve

        Elektra – awesome? Really? While the Daredevil Director’s Cut actually made the movie better, Elektra was just a mess.

      • Jazz

        @ Steve…ummm Radu was using sarcasm as in Daredevil sucked and Elektra was worse…

  • Teller

    I would love to suck on his hammer and let him pound my Asgard.

    • Marc

      I want in on that !

      • Joe

        Me too! A menage-a-cuatre foe the ages!

      • Alan of Montreal

        or a ménage-à-quatre, even!


      THAT…is the funniest thing i have ever heard. lol

  • Steph

    I’m much more excited for Captain America. Not to mention have more confidence in that film. But this one? Not so much.

  • timelord24

    well its kenneth BRANAGH and not BRANAUGH

  • dancar

    I make that face when my wig doesn’t fit too.

    • Jeff

      I know, if the wigs are that bad how bad is the movie going to be?

  • Big Bob

    Reminds me of the guys from ABBA. LOL !

  • MN

    Lots of talent in this film. Hemworth was great in his small role in Star Trek.

  • Tarq

    I would have been more excited for this photo, if not for the fact that we’ve had the trailer available for awhile now. This could just as well be a still from the trailer.

    How is this an exclusive exactly?

    • MCS

      This IS a still from the trailer. Not an exclusive at all. This is from where he throws the hammer right near the end

      • Gerrilyn

        Great insight! That\’s the answer we\’ve been lkooing for.

  • JFWilder

    I have anger issues with idiot writers who promise things and don’t ever deliver. Jeff…you know what I mean.

  • Roekest

    Kenneth Branaugh directing a superhero flick??? I’m in. Look for more of a cerebral script, than one anchored in unabashed action.

    • Diane

      Me too. Branaugh understands how to put together a smart movie-now let’s see if he can incorporate the special effects

  • Ed TV

    Someone spent waaaayyyy too much time on all those plastic molded backdrop props. Totally fakey.

  • bruno

    i smell bomb.

    • paul

      I smell Bruno . . . (phew)

      • bruno

        oh, i’m sorry paul. you must be right. OMG! thor is gonna be just totally awesome…..
        there. better?
        this movie has suck written all over it. so does cpt america. this is all just horrible hype set up for the avengers, which shall also blow.

      • paul

        Poor Bruno!! Could it be that his relentless focus on sucking and blowing reveals much about the current state of his love life??
