From the other thread:

Thor is hardly the only character of foreign descent to be portrayed speaking in an English accent. Simply look at any Shakespeare adaptation, stories set all over Europe, yet the characters almost always talk in English accents. English accents have long been a cinematic shorthand through a whole range of historical epics and fantasies. It's an all-purpose accent that seems to fit into a whole range of contexts.
Yep. Leonidas did not have a spartan accent. And the Gladiator lacked the italian/spanish accent.

Thor will probably have either UK region or if not then Australian accent. Norse would be prefect, but I would be ok with UK/Australian, but not american.
 
I can just picture it now, "It's Hammer Time!" and some heavy metal rocking in the background.:whatever:
 
''Hear the Thunder, feel the Lightning;

Let's whip up a storm......''

:D
 
..i wonder what the set design will be like.. i wonder if the filmmakers will try to keep things strictly medieval, or incorporate some of the "Kirby-ized" architecture and technology...
 
More with Quesada about Branagh/Thor

Director Kenneth Branagh's history may be more highbrow, but his Thor movie is going to be very faithful to the comics (and to the Avengers movie franchise), says Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada. Talking to Comic Book Resources, Quesada talked about meeting with Branagh and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to map out the movie:
[Branagh] has immersed himself in [the comics]... He was talking about characters and villains that even I was going, like, who was that?, y'know. But if you're a Thor-head, you're going to go, oh right... So it was wonderful to hear this stuff. He wasn't just concerned about Thor, but he also understood going in, from the beginning - because we established very early on... Well, at the end of the Iron Man movie, but very early on [in the process], that there's going to be other movies that become part of this tapestry. This is essentially our Star Wars, our universe is our Star Wars, and he understands that his Thor movie is one of the legs of this table that will interplay with an Iron Man movie down the road, or the Avengers movie down the road.
Of course, does being faithful to the comic mean that Thor will be a God once again? Quesada didn't even hint in that direction, wisely.
Thor is being prepped for a 2010 release.

Cool :woot:
 
"Thor movie is going to be very faithful to the comics (and to the Avengers movie franchise)"

Hmmmm... I wonder if this means we're gonna have some action in modern time Earth... unlike the 1st draft of the script.
 
This can be the theme for the movie :oldrazz: :

I loved this song as a kid!!! It was my favorite Manowar song. Later, I've met Eric Adams (very nice guy, btw) and he said that he didn't like it that much... he thought the gregorian chant was kinda boring.

Anyway, I think it's a great song.
 
If it's coming out in 2010, they should hurry up the casting process. :o
 
Yeah, they really need to be lightning quick here - go hammer and tongs at it and whip up a bit of a storm.
 
With a casting call out, it shouldn't be long now

And then they have until July to pack a ****load of muscle on him.
 
Guarantee you they will go with Ultimate Thor and it won't fully take place in Asgard but mostly on Earth. :o
 
It was never going to take place fully in Asgard
 
You know what I meant! :cmad: 95% will be on Midgard and we'll probably only get flashbacks. We may not even see Asgard. In Ultimate Thor, he was believed to be crazy becuase Loki was messing with everything around him. This way Thor's magic background won't be up against IM's, Cap's and Hulk's "realness" if you catch my drift.
 
Its still about 15 months off and I expect the release to get pushed into late July or even the first week of August
 
I catch your drift, and your drift is wrong. All you have to do is read that casting call to tell that Branagh and co have kept - at the very least - the basic outline from the Protosevich draft.

Why would they move the release date from a great one to a terrible one?
 
Im just guessing...things could get delayed, a snag or two....I'd like to see a mix of the regular and ultimate thor....I don't need the big stupid red cape....either hammer would be fine with me, but I think going with the original is better from a marketing standpoint...the teaser poster could be the Hammer with the inscription on it
 
But it's one thing to have a, say, SM2-like delay, ie being pushed back a month or two, and it's another thing entirely to delay it by a week or two when they have arguably one of the best dates of the year booked up.
