With production on Marvel’s next movie Thor set to begin later this month, tons of work is going on behind the scenes right now. Not only are the actors preparing for the fight scenes, they’re also trying on the costumes to see what works and what changes have to be made. After getting to see one of the tests, Kevin Feige (President of Marvel Studios) wrote about his reaction. Hit the jump to read it:
To be honest the thing that I’m most excited about right now though, is the screen test we just finished for “Thor.” We’ve done some costume tests and watching the Asgardians walk onto the sound stage takes me back to that first time I saw the X-Men on the set all together in Toronto. Only it was unlike anything we’ve ever put on film before! It’s great to be starting the next decade in such an exciting way just as we did last decade. We’re really redefining the comic book genre and what a Marvel movie can be. It’s going to be great.
Needless to say, expect plenty of Thor updates over the next few months. Like most of you, this is a film I cannot wait to see.
