A week ago today we got our first look at the official costume concept art for the new Marvel Films movie Thor (due out in theaters next year) and today we get to check out a video featurette from the set of Thor which aired on Entertainment Tonight last night. ET talked with the film’s stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster) and gives us our first look at Sir Anthony Hopkins as Nordic god Odin … here are a few screencaps:
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.
OMG … I am SO loving this. I am a pretty big Thor fan (both the god and the comic book character) so I am really hoping this movie does him justice. It’s a bit strange to see Hemsworth as Thor without his winged helmet mainly because he has got a lot of blonde going on. Still … I’m very excited to see more. Check out the full length ET featurette, after the jump …
Lookin’ good … so far, I’m still impressed. I LOVE that Hopkins has been cast as the Allfather Odin. He will be fantastic … here’s hoping the whole film will rule. What do y’all think … do this look like it’s turning our alright thus far?
