    It's going to be worth the wait :).

    For anyone who missed Marvels description of the film and how it's split between Earth and Asgard, here you go

    Have just read the actual article, I'm wondering....the Walt Simonson run and Beta Ray Bill saga aside...are they doing any homages or referring to the days when Kirby was drawing and plotting it? That's something I'm interested in. Seems only fitting. He made the character originally - costume, Asgard, warriors three, basic foundations...etc...what it is.

    Have to admit I'm not really familiar with either of these incarnations but it seems that these movies turn out most successfully when they return more to their roots.

    Although Simonson did a heck of a job, Kirby's Thor is by far the best imo. It was also easily the most successful.

    I love the interview from the writers, and I think they have nailed the essence of Thor. I have confidence that they will deliver a movie that is worth of the superhero Thor.

    Sorry but this doesn't make me optimistic yet.

    I re-call similar interpretations from Ang Lee and Zack Penn when writing the Hulk. Instead of Shakespeare they made comparisons to greek myth.

    Actors and writers like to talk big to show fans their taking the source material seriously but thats not enough to make a successful franchise. It is a good start however. :yay:

    So the fact that Kenneth B. is directing doesnt make you optimistic at all??

    No, he's a noob when it comes to big budget superhero movies and his filmography isn't exactly filled with memorable classics. He's a strange choice to take on a film project of this size.

    Just because a movie is based on classic literature doesn't mean it's automatically a classic film.

    I said memorable classics.

    I don't know many people who remember those films fondly. They're obscure classics to some extent which doesn't mean much when adapting comic books for the masses.

    Henry V isn't obscure. I haven't seen it, but I've heard of it being a good film. It's in the public consciousness, to an extent.

    I couldn't see Most of the films in the past 3 years do to money and work, Tho I do trust friends when they say Henry V was great.
    I Trust what Marvel's doing.

    Okay,....then why is there really no mention of that era or influence? I feel once again I'm going to be disappointed with an incarnation of a character I don't recognize as my own -and will leave the theater thinking "Man, what could have been!"

    There IS Agent. Protosevich had an interview awhile back and he said he was a TALES OF ASGARD fan. The first draft reads like a ToA story with some added myth.

    It's one of the reasons I've been pushing everyone to read the Reprints coming out.

    Okay Vartha,...now I feel better again about this project. I've been more enthused about this one movie more than any other I can remember in recent memory.

    HEH Believe me Agent, the first draft was simply amazing. It pays BIG tribute to most of Volume one stories. The script is like ToA and Ages of Asgard wrapped together. For that matter the Man of War was alot like part of the Movie script. Since Fraction borrowed from actual myth for the Ages books you have to figure he MAY have borrowed from the Frist draft as well.
    I just wish I knew What they added and or changed with the rewrites.
