Idris Elba makes a stand
Action, villains and more
Universal postpone production in wake of Paul Walker's tragic death
That date’s more significant than it first appears. Originally Thor was in place to be released on 20 May 2011, with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 in line to be released a few weeks before that on 5 May.
But we all know what happened to Raimi’s Spider-Man 4. So with that franchise currently being cranked painfully through the reboot machine, the 5 May release date was freed up.
Cue some release date shuffles, and Thor claimed the 5th as his own. No word yet when the rebooted Spidey will be swinging into multiplexes, but we can’t imagine we’ll see it until early 2012.
Meanwhile, Disney shoved the fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides into Thor’s vacated 20 May spot, having previously only given the film a vague summer 2011 release slot.

I can not wait thor this. Everything sounds great so far! Thor is one of my fav marvel characters, so to see Chris Hemsworth in the suit for the first time was pretty amazing!

MARVEL STUDIOS can do no wrong at the moment. Fox & Sony ought to take note on how to faithfully adapt MARVEL characters for the big screen.

Kenneth Branagh is a perfect pick for this movie.

The aesthetics in "Thor" sounds like it's going to look absolutely amazing.
This is what I love about MARVEL STUDIOS. They respect and are true to the original source material.
Their passion, their dedication and great work ethic in faithfully bringing their characters to the big screen without comprimise really sets them apart.
Unlike Fox & Sony who have totally butchered the MARVEL characters they have undeservedly been privileged to work with .

Whilst I'm a fan of Samuel L Jackson, I'm not a big fan of the "Ultimate" series at all.
I would have prefered the original Nick Fury. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. :-)
