Kinda like in Disney's Hercules, Hera was his mother. Go figure that one.
Wait..she was ?

So Disney's Hercules was a full God ?
At birth. Hades turned him mortal as a baby in order to try and derail his career.

Refresh my memory, in the Marvel comics Loki actually IS Thor's brother (half-brother?) and not adopted?

No, he's very much adopted (they recently revisited his origin in JMS' run).

Re: THOR-starts shooting Jan2010: Updates, Rumors & Casting till relea

Seems only appropriate to update the THOR thread with this update as well.

THOR moved up to May 20th to May 6th
Variety says Sony still wants to release SPIDER-MAN 4 on May 5 so if the studio gets to keep that date, Paramount would have move THOR again but it’s gonna be tough getting May 20 back from PIRATES 4. Isn’t this fun?! Fight, fight, fight!
Marvel Studios and Paramount has moved THOR from May 20th to two weeks earlier than scheduled, May 6th, 2011…
Marvel properties possibly at war.
SONY has really messed up things with their poor handling of the Spidey 4 development.

I want Spidey 4 but I don't want it to mess up Thor. So if SONY gets it back together they will have a real tough time finding another good summer 2011 spot. If it shoe horns into a slot a day or two before THOR it could hurt both.

What a tangled web that is being weaved.

History repeating itself?A few days before shooting starts and Stuart Townsend has left Thor, due to 'creative differences.' He has been replaced by Viggo Mort ..., er, Joshua Dallas.

One rumour has him being sacked for turning up 6 hours late but that's unconfirmed.

Townsend was famously replaced as Aragorn soon into shooting on Lord of the Rings by Joshua Da ..., I mean Viggo Mortensen. Is he really unlucky or totally unprofessional? e
Either way, I don't want to be on a lottery syndicate with him...

On the other hand he goes home to Charlize Theron every night, so he can't be that unlucky.

As for the competition for release dates, if Spider-Man 4 comes together in time for a May 5th release then it'll win out and it'll be Thor looking for a new release date.

^ Good point. Banging Charlize Theron versus supporting role in a Thor movie - no contest.

Even better: Banging Charlie Theron as Aragorn while having a supporting role in a Thor movie.

Fun fact: Viggo Mortensen co-starred with Charlize Theron in The Road.

Re: THOR-starts shooting Jan2010: Updates, Rumors & Casting till relea

THOR began shooting this past Monday, January 11!!
Marvel Studios has commenced principal photography on the highly anticipated feature film THOR directed by Kenneth Branagh.
......
The epic adventure THOR spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, 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.
I've been wondering how all of this would come together in regards to who Thor fights. Seems Loki will be pullling the strings of whoever Thor fights. These "darkest forces" may be Frost Giants or other Asgardian creatures. Not sure if a "name" baddie exists. Anyone have some ideas on who Loki might send that would fit the bill 'darkest forces'?
Marvel has a chance to do its version of a LOTR-lite type battle sequence it seems. Be interesting to see who this movie unfolds present day and potential throw downs of this sort.

Looking forward to those first on set leaked photos of our actors in costume.

Re: THOR-starts shooting Jan2010: Updates, Rumors & Casting till relea

Shooting continues on Thor and it seems Santa Fe, New Mexico is a stand in locale for something.
So, Thor in the desert for something or some reason. Curious?
Parts of Marvel Studios' Thor will be filmed in the Santa Fe, New Mexico area, Gov. Bill Richardson's office said Tuesday.
According to KFDA, the studio is expected to hire more than 200 New Mexico residents for the cast and crew.
The production is currently shooting in Los Angeles.
So with a month of shooting under their belt I'd have hoped for some type of leaked(official or unofficial) photos by now.

I'm too lazy to post a link but according to the tabloids, she dumped him week or two ago. He is now officially the biggest loser in the world.

Well, he still spent years banging Charlize Theron. So he's at least got those memories, which is more than a lot of people have.

Re: THOR-starts shooting Jan2010: Updates, Rumors & Casting till relea

Anthony Hopkins reveals a bit about what his Odin is like.
"He's a stern man. He's a man with purpose," he said. "I play the god who banishes his son from the kingdom of Asgard because he screwed up. He's a hot-headed, temperamental young man --- probably a chip off of the old block -- but I decide he's not really ready to rule the future kingdom, so I banish him. I'm harsh and my wife complains and I say, 'That is why I'm king.' He's ruthless, take-it-or-leave-it. Women are much more forgiving; men are not so forgiving. I know in my life, my karma is, 'If you don't like it, tough, move on.' And I move on. I'm a little like Odin myself."Thor is now filming for a May 6, 2011 release.
Hopkins can currently be seen as the father of the Wolfman and that role was played with some stern, tough love as well. I imagine his Odin will be very brash and royal at the sametime.
