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

@Shazam...I agree with you wholeheartedly regarding posters. They're far too corporate and generic. They need to hire some artists or something, have some fun. Movies are supposed to be fun as well as entertaining last time I checked.

As for "Thor" it's self. Not sure how you could classify the film as being "silly" and dismiss it. It seems to me they're following the same formula they built "Iron Man" around and combining comedic elements with action and adventure. That seems fine to me. I'm looking forward to the film...except for Kat Dennings character...

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

^ Well, of course it will be silly from a certain point of view, but no more or less so, as far as I can tell, than a lot of other movies of its kind that I have enjoyed. If it has a sense of humor about itself, which apparently it does, then so much the better.

Beyond that, it is possible to tell a grounded story about characters with very human traits and flaws that also contains a lot of fantastical elements, so really the outlandishness of the Thor mythos (which is indeed a very wacky and rather odd mixture of fantasy, sci-fi and mythology even for comics) shouldn't stand in the way of the film telling a rousing story. Branagh strikes me as the perfect man for the job, so I'm looking forward to this as well.

As for the posters, meh... I think it's just the nature of image saturation in pop culture that leads to very simple design, with a face, a name, an intense color, maybe a phrase or two, which is all the casual audience of moviegoers is likely to retain from a poster a few months prior to the film's release (in the opinion of the designers in any event).

Too bad they can't make the posters look like they used to, they could have done something like this:

Found out that the World Premiere will be in Sydney on April 17. FB Link. I'd like to see it, but most likely will see it when it starts here on the 21st.

Very cool Many of them seem to be photos from the set or from an early cut of the film, but whatever. Jaime Alexander looks great as Sif in particular. And Volstagg = win.

Here are some of my favorite shots. It seems these are scans from a publication, not screen grabs.

Any reason other than racial diversity we keep seeing Heimdal on all the posters? Does he play a large part in the movie? Wheres Volstagg or Balder or Fandral?

From what I have read his role is pretty significant, yes. But I'm sure diversity plays a role in his being featured in the marketing. Plus the fact that he looks cool.
