Thor Movie Underway!!!

To see comic book characters come alive on the Big Screen has been an exciting thing for comic book fans the world over.  With the creation of new and innovative tools used in the movie industry, the realism of super powers is unbelievable.  With this in mind, many fans of the Marvel Comics Universe have been pleased with such films as Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man and others.  Added to this is the fact that Marvel has taken on a more direct role in controlling what goes on in these movie productions and we, as fans, have seen the benefit.  Therefore, it is with great excitement and anticipation that we await the upcoming production of one of Marvel's mightiest heroes, Thor. has reported that shooting on this film has begun and includes an all-star cast including Anthony Hopkins as Odin himself.  Other actors include Renee Russo as Frigga, Ray Stevenson as Volstagg, Jamie Alexander as Sif, Tadanobu Asano as Hogan, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Josh Dallas as Fandrall and many others.  The Mighty Thor will be portrayed by Chris Hemworth as he battles against his evil brother Loki, portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.  With hope we hope all the actors, especially our main ones, will capture the essence of the characters and truly bring them to life on the movie screen.

While the overall plot has been laid out for us (you can read it here), it's the special effects that many are anticipating and other visual aspects of the film.  Powerful lightning strikes, deafening thunderclaps, the power of Mjolnir, Thor's might hammer, being hurled as it's power is unleashed, the superhuman strength of the thunder god being impressively displayed.  It's what fans want and we want it believable.  The days of crappy screenplays, poor special effects, stupid dialog and too much deviation from the original storyline should be things of the past.  Whether that proves true or not will have to wait and be seen.  Until then, this loyal blogger will be waiting see one of Marvel's most powerful heroes come to life.

Until next time...
