Thor begins in Jan

Nov. 13, 2009by: Niki Stephens

It's time for the hammer to fall.

Pretty cheesy opening, huh? Anyway, some good news is coming from Production Weekly's twitter account: "Filming on Marvel's "Thor" is scheduled to begin in LA mid-January, then move to Santa Fe, New Mexico from March till late-April."

Who's excited? It was sort of disappointing to hear that Alexander Skarsgard would not be the mighty God of thunder, but at least his Dad, Stellan got a part. Not sure what part it was though.

I really think this is going to be insanely epic. For starters, you've got Kenneth Branagh directing. That automatically makes it worth seeing. Then there's some good names in the cast: Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. As for the casting of Chris Hemsworth as THOR, I think it's alright. I won't lay any real judgment on him until I see the movie.

On a side note, what the f*ck is going to happen with THE AVENGERS movie? One minute it's on, the next minute it's too big to even attempt. Part of me really wants to see it happen, then again I really don't want it ruined. Is it really impossible?

I'll use any excuse to throw in a pic of Natalie.
Extra Tidbit: I want more news on the Captain America film. I still can't decide who I'd want to play Cap.

For Capt America...

I think Bradley Cooper from "The Hangover" and "Alias" would be great, he can do action and he can act and I think he looks the part, can be scrawny at first and then beef up when he is transformed to super soldier.

I dont get the fasination over skarsgard, I think Hemsworth would do fine, lets see him before passing judgement, for all we know skarsgard would have been shit. As for Cap America, I think Chris Pine would be perfect

Maybe not so epic...

Am I the only person who feels a post like this is [link] Didn't we already know the casting and such...Okay, a lot of movies start filming in January. Can't honestly say I'm a fan of any of Branagh's previous directing efforts by the way, so we'll have to see about that one. And Portman is like an annoying little boy elf. I mean that whole-heartedly, not just trying to piss people off here.

Well, Thor has had quite a muddled and delayed production. So news that filming starts soon is a big deal for the people who've been following the film. And with standards like yours, your GF has to look like Scarlett Johanssen, right?

Anyone else noticed that they were looking for a meteor piece somewhere in Africa, in the Wolverine movie.

Got me thinking that we might see a build up to the Avangers movie. Aliens would then be the bad guys. All you people that has seen the "Ultimate Avangers" animated movies, know what I mean.

Nope, definitely not a build-up. The X-Men movies exist in a different 'universe' or timeline...or should I say selling them to different studios f**ked everything up. So Fantastic Four or Wolverine or Spider-Man are not building up towards the Avengers. Maybe a hint or two here and there, but that's about it.

Also, they found the meteor in Wolverine, and they just used it to make the adamantium.

Capt. America

Again, Gabriel Macht should be Capt.Watch The Spirit, even if you don't like the movie, watch the close-ups. He's perfect.

I always thought that Jensen Ackles has the best psychic, attitude, and voice to be Captain America.

True Believers!

Sorry, can't drop this cause I'm really looking forward to these movies.

Avengers is essentially a sequel to IM, IH, IM2, Thor and Cap. Everything has already been explained, introduced and so on. Avengers will be a group of heroes we already know, fighting evil we may or may not already know.

If they started with the Avengers movie, then I would say it would be pretty hard to pull it off. But the way they're doing it now is pretty damn impressive and exciting.

Tidbit: I would love

Thor

Sounds very exciting! I can't wait to see the cast in costume as for the Avengers movie it's not impossible, it would only consist of four main characters, Thor, Capt. America, Iron Man and Hulk, where for example in X2 had to deal with at leat six main characetrs and worked out impecably fine, so I think that if given the right director for the job we could get a very well put together Avenger film.

I still don't know who could play Captain America... I think they should go with an unknown

COOL...

To be honest I'm waiting for this more than CapAmerica too...Thor has the potential to be epic in scale...

...it also has the potential to be a cheesefest full of corny lines and poor cgi...so we'll see.

First name that popped into my head for Cap was Nic Cage. LOL! :D You may be kidding, but oddly enough, I'm not.

What would really please me, would be to have 1 complete year, without a single comic book "adaptation" being made/released.

Oh, and what's the obsession with Natalie Portman? Is it just the Star Wars geeks or... ?

What's the problem with the comic book flicks? If you don't like 'em, don't go--it's really that simple.

Nic Cage for Captian America, Bobby J. Thompson (Role Models) as Bucky, and a bored, tired, and fat Robert DeNiro as Red Skull. Blockbuster, motherfuckers!

The Avengers movie is entirely possible.. it's just the question of who could possibly take a film that grand in scope and that massive in it's scale and somehow get everything right... there's too many moving parts to get it perfect, so it has to be somebody close to the source material.

I still think Patrick Wilson would be perfect as Cap. And as for John Hamm, no. He'd be much better as Superman.

Wilson is also one of my top choices for Cap. I know a lot of people want Hamm as Superman, but I've never been able to wrap my head around it.

Me too, I'm really interested to hear the progress they're making with it. I'm becoming more and more partial to seeing Jon Hamm as Cap. He's a recognizable enough actor yet not famous enough to detract from the character. Seems like a good fit.

And I don't think Avengers have been "off" for a long time. It's pretty official, Avengers in 2012.

I think

Brad Pitt should've played Thor. Honestly, he is a great actor and could truly bring Thor to live (like RDJ did for Tony Stark), and he looks JUST LIKE THOR!!!

Look at Brad Pitt when he was in Troy. If that wasn't Thor then idk what is.

Nonetheless, I'm excited for this film.
