Thor to start shooting in January of 2010 for a 2011 release. Kenneth Branagh has given an update on the progress of Thor, start of shooting being the biggest finally. I'm sure its no coincidence that Branagh was asked about Thor, or at least the account published now, when another Marvel property Wolverine just opened the summer season in a big way. Also Marvel released the first official publicity photo of Iron Man 2. Whether coordinated or not Marvel does a good way of having its properties out there in the public eye. So, Thor? I know nothing of this Tom Hiddleston, anyone seen this Wallanders show? The last contender for the lead I'd heard was Alexander Skarsgard of True Blood. Let's Discuss the progress on the movie and what it means towards the eventual Avengers movie as well.
