New Thor Image

As we head into comic-con this week expect plenty of new details from the worlds of comics, movies and TV to start hitting the net as movie studios, publishers and the TV networks all promote their various projects that are in the works. The Los Angeles Times have released a sneak peak of Odin’s throne room in Asgard from Marvel’s upcoming Thor movie. The image reveals a shot of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) kneeling before Odin (Anthony Hopkins) which you can see below.


Thor is directed by Kenneth Branagh and also stars Natalie Portman, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings and Stellan Skarsgard. Based on the Marvel comic, Thor tells the story of a powerful warrior cast down from Asgard to Earth and forms part of the Marvel series building towards the Avengers film.

Thor is scheduled for a theatrical release in 2011.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
