THOR THE MIGHTY NORSE GOD comes to the big screen.

This May we will be subjected to the arrival of the Norse god Thor on the big screen. I have to say I was a bit skeptical about this movie. The cast seems solid Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins,Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Rene Russo, Ray Stevenson and newcomer Chris Hemsworth. The movie is directed by Kenneth Branagh which I find strange because he is known for directing period pieces and Shakespeare. I guess Thor could be a period piece but I’m looking for maybe a Ridley Scott Gladiator type film. But I am not going to be to hasty. I will give this movie the benefit of doubt. I was never a big Thor comics fan I never understood why Norse Mythology had to be incorporated into comic books. Another funny story I read was that white supremacist groups were not happy with Idris Elba playing a Norse god, they have gone as far as to boycott the film. People come on we are talking about Thor a Marvel Comics movie, it’s not like Denzel Washington is playing Hitler in a movie directed by Spike Lee. Which I have to say would probably be a pretty good movie.
