THOR Photo: Chris Hemsworth

Chris Hemsworth Thor

Chris Hemsworth has the title role in Kenneth Branagh's upcoming Thor, the fantasy-adventure written by Ashley Miller and Don Payne, and based on the Marvel comic books. The above is the first online photo from the film, which will be released by Paramount next year.

In addition to Chris Hemsworth, the Thor cast includes Natalie Portman, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgård, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Adriana Barraza, Colm Feore, and Matt Battaglia.

I vaguely remember watching some of the Thor cartoons on television. But just vaguely. In the film version, Hemsworth (of Star Trek and brother of Liam Hemsworth, currently on the big screen with Miley Cyrus in The Last Song) plays a partially disabled medical student, Donald Blake, who uncovers his alter ego, the mythical Norse god Thor, so as to fight a powerful enemy threatening the Earth. (As if the planet needs more enemies…)

Thor will be released on May 6, 2011, kicking off the summer movie season next year, much like Paramount-Marvel's Iron Man 2 is kicking off the summer movie season this year.
