A few days ago Marvel/Paramount released the first image of Chris Hemsworth as Thor. I said everything I wanted to say in the original article, but if you’d like to see the picture in high resolution, hit the jump. Thor gets released May 20, 2011.
Here’s the official Thor synopsis:
The film follows the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
