Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

This weekend THOR finally dropped out of the top 10 after 6 weeks holding strong and placed #11. It's total did propel it over the $175m milestone to land at a domestic total of $176.1m. It's worldwide total is at $435m but the OS totals aren't usually updated till Tuesday.

Thor manages to be the comic film to beat this summer still.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

I just saw on Amazon.com that you can now pre-order 2D and 3D versions of "Thor" on DVD. No release date was given but projections I've seen have it out the first week of Oct.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

I'm seeing a DVD release date of Sept. 27 for THOR.

That sounds about right. Paramount/Marvel have given Thor a very similar release date to the first Iron Man which I believe hit the first or second week of October.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

The truest sign a movie did well is to get the sequel announcement while it's still in theaters, just under 500 as of now, and before DVD has begun.

THOR sequel to hit 2013!!!

Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios are eyeing a summer 2013 release for a sequel to Thor, reports Deadline, with Chris Hemsworth reprising the title role.
Meanwhile THOR will get it's last big hurrah over the July 4th weekend which hopefully will push it over the $180m mark domestically and soon get the other $10.5m internationally it needs for $450m worldwide!!!

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

That's awesome, I really enjoyed Thor. I'm disappointed Kenneth Branagh won't be returning, though. I thought it was his deft hand and understanding of how to meld the pomp and circumstance with "reality" that made Thor what it was. It'll be interesting to see who they get to direct.

Glad to hear there will be a sequel but disappointed that Brannagh isn't coming back.

Hopefully the next movie will focus on Kat Dennings' character like this one should have.

Darcy Lewis is one of the mainstays of Marvel Comics and is possibly the longest running character after Millie the Model. I was appalled that she didn't get her own film by now, much less such a minor role in 'Thor'.

We all seem to feel that way, here and about the net.
Didn't take long for some site to dream up their short list of replacement possibles.
  • Neil Marshall (Centurion)
  • Gavin O'Connor (Tumbleweeds)
  • Pierre Morel (Taken)
  • Noam Murro (Smart People, attatched to Die Hard 5)
  • Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters)

Again, this is not Marvel's list but this website. Not sure I'm overly inspired with their list.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

I'm really happy they're doing a sequel, but I'm also sad Branagh won't return. I wonder who the villain will be? I watched an episode of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes with The Enchantress a while back, and I could see her working pretty well in a movie.

One rumor is indeed the Enchantress and the Executioner, but I'm not familiar enough with Thor's rogues gallery to say if they'd be good enough for a movie.

I'd be up for that. The Marvel movies could use a good femme fatale as a villainess.
