It's William Katt from 'Greatest American Hero'. I used to watch it as a kid too - best theme song ever.

Quite; Imagine a 6'4" Alexander beefed up to the max?

That'd be awesome.

We can only hope that he gets a shot at the role (hell, I hope he even gets a chance to read for the part)

Ummm why are they not putting this out on the 15th? Having Thor not being released on a Thursday is just ignorant.

How many superheroes based on mythic characters does Marvel have that actually have a day of the week named after them?

He's too old even for blake.Plus as director I doubt he wil take a large role.He will probably be a back drop character just Fav.in Ironman.

Glad to see that a release date is set for Thor, and they have a competent director (Branagh) who is helming this movie. Thor is probably the trickiest Marvel superheroes to bring to the big screen, and I'm glad Marvel found the right man for the job.

this is what i think thor and loki should look like in the movie.
i know the script says loki is handsome, but this should be his true form.

Why would anyone trust a face like that? Loki's a subtle schemer. Faces like that sound red alerts for most people. The Norse gods would have to be stupid to be fooled by a guy who looks like Gollum with horns.

Loki should be handsome. Also I don't want wings on Thor's helmets. Vikings never had wings on their helmets (or horns for that matter). Viking helmets look like the following, which is a hell of a lot cooler anyways:

Well these are gods. Each one's helmet seems to relate to an animal in some way so I say keep that going. They're pretty much crowns signifying their godly status. Let all the other soldiers wear those helmets.

i agree. Thor is not a viking. He's the god of thunder in a fictional comicbook.

They should do it for the fans. And for those who don't know, they could stick it in the trailer, "starts THORsday"

Personally, I like the idea of Loki having an alternate appearance and a true form. I've always looked at Loki as being Asgard's version of Satan. There are scriptures that describe Satan as Morning Star and a very beautiful being and other scriptures that describe him as the dragon and very twisted and evil looking.

But either way, I'm fine if they just go with handsome.

im with you bro.
i think of loki as a man who looks trust worthy on the outside, but is evil looking and nasty on the inside, a man who lies and decieves .

One thing you guys don't realize is that Thor is not a viking and he's not from this Earth. Therefore the things he wears and the materials they're made of are not from this reality. The armor he wears are stylized versions of what the vikings wore. The vikings were influenced by the Aesir as their gods not the other way around.

Joe Quesada: Okay, three words describe my day today “Branagh gets it!”

Bendis: @JoeQuesada hey are we allowed to talk about what we did today or is it hush hush?

Quesada: @BRIANMBENDIS We can’t go into detail but I think we can say that we met with Branagh about Thor

Bendis: @JoeQuesada so we can’t go into detail but maybe we can say that we met with Branagh about Thor

Quesada: (in response to a fan) I’ll tell you what’s sweet @rdhall Sweet is when he starts quoting continuity and past storylines. The man has immersed himself in Marvel

Quesada: Yes @BRIANMBENDIS we can hint at hour super secret Thor meeting with Branagh, but don’t give it away, just hint
