    Wow, didn't expect this. This is the first movie she's done in how long now?

    It'll be 5 & 1/2 years since her last film(Yours, Mine & Ours-Nov/05).

    Russo is a very nice addition.

    By the way, anyone know if Hela will be making an appearance at all?

    Haven't seen Russo for a minute. Needless to say, from that last Nickelodeon flick she did, I would still hit it.

    Got to give it to Marvel, hiring well known and reliable actors is a simple tactic, but also a fantastic tactic at that. What better way to get the audience watching something they are not familiar with than hiring actors that they are familiar with.

    Move over SM4. Thor just became one of my most anticipated movies of 2011.

    This movie will own! I don't even need to see it to know that, but of course, I will see it. At this point they would have to do something MONUMENTALLY stupid to ruin this movie. Everything has been great so far.

    No one really knows at this point, although I'd guess probably not

    That would be a shame.

    But I guess it's not like they cant feature her at some point in the future.

    Yeah, it's not like she shows up in Thor's everyday activities, she's more tied in to specific storylines and/or events and could be featured in sequels. The same goes for Enchantress and Executioner

    I bet in the sequel we get Hela and Valkyrie. Death and Hell and all.
