That might be it then, because SHH and Comingsoon are part of the same group of sites. And alot of CS's comic book movie stories are taken directly from SHH.

I'm trying to see if I can be at the World Premiere for the film, but if not got plans to see it over Easter. Can't wait.

I hope they don't spend too much time at Asgard at the start of the movie.

I can't wait to see how Anthony Hopkins does as Thor's father. No actor has been able to top Marlon Brando as the best superhero dad.

There's a review elsewhere of about twenty minutes of Thor shown at a convention the other day - it appears a fair amount of the early part of the film is in Asgard.

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

One of the things that should set Thor apart structurally from other superhero origin flics is that he has his powers from the beginning, then loses them, then regains them. So, whereas a lot of these flics have relatively sedate first acts, I expect Thor to open with one of the big effects sequences towards the beginning of the film. It should be interesting to see how that works.

^ Almost like an Empire Strikes Back set up, but without being a sequel.

I'm not sure about the "lost his powers" aspect of this. I guess we'll see.

Hasn't that been one of the major parts of Thor's origin since Marvel created their character?

Well, it was the result of a very early retcon, technically speaking, but basically yes.

Yeah, Thor being "cast out" is a long-time aspect of the comic book character.

I initially read this as 'The Thor cast being out.' Really confused me.

I'm not talking about him being cast out, I'm talking about him not having any powers beyond being a tough guy. I haven't read any spoilers, but I'm getting the sense that for a third of the movie, he can't even lift the hammer.
