Shock Thor expected to be "biggest" Marvel Studios film to date!

Keep in mind when hearing this Marvel Studios only will have made 2 films prior to this: The Incredible Hulk & Iron Man. Still with rumors of Iron Man's budget hitting the financing cap of 180 million makes me feel even stronger that Marvel isn't being cheap on any of their films and they're putting the right talent behind these franchises to ensure they last. Also by preselling the overseas distribution rights they effectively cut the budget, on top of not having to pay themselves for the rights. 2008 is gonna be HUGE for Marvel.

The weird phrase/ idea of fantastic four was about Alex Zane…and his hat (apparently it’s become a “thing” now) and the weird thing of today came from me remembering that the director of Stardust, Matthew Vaughn is going to direct the “Mighty Thor” movie. SO there was much gruff yelling of THOR. I even spoke to Vaughn about Thor he said it’s happening but they’re just discussing the budget because it could very well be Marvel’s most expensive movie.

I can see Thor being much more expensive than Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk.

Let's hope that Marvel does better making their own movies for a change.

Thor should be a bigger budget as i see it more of a mythical type of film than any of the rest of the marvel movies.

Especially if it set in Asgard and Valhalla. Can't wait to see how they'll visualize a worldwith buildings that essentially is a mixture of Edoras and Minas Tirith from LOTR on a bigger scale.
And I hope there'll be some breathtaking nature-shots from isolated locations too.

I hope they hire quite a bit of unknown but good actors so they can save some money for the special effects and settings.

I don't care about it being the biggest..whatever that means. I just hope it is well made. I can't wait to see how Marvel handles their own films. Hopefully they'll have enough filmmaking sense to realize that you can't simply film a comic book. Changes must be made to adapt it to film. But, on the plus side, they certainly will have enough comic book sense to realize that they don't have to butcher and re work every little detail to make a comic work as a film.

An Asgrad based Thor movie will tank big time mark this post, feel free to bash me till then but when it does know I said it would tank.
Marvel Thor is not Norse mythology Thor and in fact they are so far apart its not even funny.
This is typical studio head idiot's thinking... hey if we make it all in Asgard we will get comic book fans and the fantasy fans as well...yeh thats the ticket....

Vaughn already made it perfectly clear this is a Marvel Thor and not based on Norse mythology.

He can call it whatever he wants the script says Norse mythology Thor not Marvel Thor.
And now with the new decreased budget yep mark my first post this Thor is gonna tank like superman4, unless there are some major revisions to that mostly Asgard based plot.

Nope and nothing would make me happier than to be dead wrong and it to be a huge hit.
I am just not getting that vibe from the original script I read and am getting a vibe that this is not going to do well based on what I did read.
Seems to be a tweener plot trying to again apease both fantasy based fans and CB fans.
Please do not think my doubts are me wanting it to fail.

Due to the most recent script review mentioning that the story focuses on both Asgard and Midgard, I'm under the impression that Thor still ends up on Earth in the film. But without the Donald Blake storyline.

I agree, it should be shown WHY Thor beomes merged with Blake, not the way Lee & Kirby introduced Thor.
You have to look at it from Thor's angle not Blake's. Journey Into Mystery 83 was from Don Blake's view, not how Thor got into that cave.

Thinking you are making something called Marvel Thor without using DB is pretty stupid since without him its not really Marvel Thor now is it.

I'd assume the movie would be set in between Asgard and modern NY.

Or maybe the first movie is entirely in Asgard with Thor being banished to NY in then final scenes - that would be be shocker ending fer sure. and set up the sequels or an Avengers movie quite well.

In the draft that's been around for some time, NY is nowhere to be seen. When he gets exiled from Asgard he ends up among the vikings.

Strike’s over, so what’s with the delay and Marvel latest announcement that Thor still doesn’t have a director? Possible culprits are:
  • Script has not been perfected. Yeah, 2 years – and it’s not done yet. Better get some comic book writers (JMS? Simonson?) to speed up the process.
  • Short of cash after doing IM & Hulk promotions.
  • Director issue, Marvel is still not sure with Vaughn.
Gosh, when I compare Thor movie making process with fast GI Joe, Wolverine and JLA process, I just want to cry.

I sure ****in hope he doesn't end up in NY in this movie, but if that's the way it goes it'd be a now-typical set-up for The Avengers, I suppose.

I welcome any marvel film but i have never really taken to thor as a character maybe its because he is a character taken from popular myth rather then a character built from the ground up.
