Thor is the next film in the Marvel line up, eventually coming together with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) to form the Avengers, but until then we have Thor and then The First Avenger to look forward to. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is the story of a young cocky god by the same name, and whos reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) then casts him down to earth to learn the error of his ways. Little does Thor know that his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is planning on removing his father from the throne and taking it for himself. Meeting earthlings Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Darcy (Kat Dennings) and Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard), Thor must use his new found friends and try to gain favor back from his father in order for him to take up his mighty hammer “Mjollnir” return to Asgard and defeat his brother, and restore peace to both earth and Asgard.
Thor has been high on my wish list from the very first time I heard of its production, but as time has gone by that excitement has waned slightly. Each trailer for Thor that I have watched has not really impressed me on the effects front, the ice giants look like plasticine models and the CG is also quite unconvincing. But I think the main few characters are this films saving grace in the forms of Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth who as young aspiring actors are said to own the screen and have some ace on screen chemistry.
Thor finally hits cinemas on April 21st
