Not all of the Warriors Three will be returning for Thor 2. While Volstagg (Ray Stevenson) and Hogun (Tadanobu Asano) will be reprising their roles as two of the warriors from Thor, Fandral (Josh Dallas) apparently will not. Dallas’ prior commitments to the ABC series, Once Upon a Time, will prevent him from joining the sequel. So reports have it that Marvel is looking to ex-secret agent super-spy, Zachary Levi (Chuck) to fill the role. Hit the jump for more.
If you’re hard-up for new Thor footage, then you’ll want to check out the new French trailer for the film. It has a whopping three or maybe even four seconds of stuff that wasn’t in the teaser trailer or theatrical trailer. Plus, you get to hear all of the actors re-dubbed in French! Magnifique!
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Rene Russo, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Clark Gregg, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Joshua Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, and Anthony Hopkins. The film opens in 3D in France on April 27th and in the U.S. on May 6th.
Marvel has released a new trailer for Thor. Some of the stuff I love, especially the look of Asgard and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) chucking Mjolner in to the face of a frost giant. But then there’s other stuff that makes the scale of the picture look dinky. Watching Destroyer (the metal, fire-faced guy) blow up the local Piggly-Wiggly doesn’t seem to fit with the epic tone director Kenneth Branagh seems to want. And as for the humor, it’s also a mixed bag. I chuckled at Thor smashing a coffee cup and demanding more of the delicious beverage, but then Kat Dennings’ joke about putting him on Facebook feels tired. I want Thor to be good, but I’m currently more optimistic about Marvel’s other big flick this summer, Captain America: The First Avenger.

Thanks to Paramount/Marvel releasing the first official trailer (the leaked one from Comic-Con doesn’t count) for Thor, we’ve got a ton of new images to look at! Granted they’re taken from the trailer, but so much is happening in the two minutes that I decided to screengrab 30 single images so you could see a bit more of what’s going on.
I will say after visiting the set earlier this year (watch my video blog here), the trailer reveals a tremendous amount that the casual fan won’t notice. But if you watched my recap of the set visit and heard me talk about what I saw and learned, you might notice some of those huge moments. I’ll tease you by saying Marvel does a great job editing certain things so you can’t tell you’re watching scenes from the finale cut to scenes happening much earlier in the film. If you check out the images, you’ll see shots of the big battle between Loki and Thor….as well as why Thor is sent to Earth and so much more! After you see the movie next year, watch this trailer again and you won’t believe how much Marvel revealed. Hit the jump for the images:
The trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s Thor has gone online. It’s comprised mostly of the footage that was shown at Comic-Con (and later leaked online), but I think this trailer is better cut together. It’s clear that they’ve done some nifty effects work in the past five months, and I think this is a solid first trailer that will get people interested. It’s worth nothing that I’ve never been one of the people that think the costumes or sets look cheesy. I dig the aesthetic they’re going for and it feels like it will be a fresh spin on the superhero genre.

When I visited the set of Thor earlier this year, I was able to participate in an interview with Ray Stevenson and Joshua Dallas. As two of the three members of The Warriors Three (Volstag and Fandril), they talked about their characters and what it was like to make the movie. For those who haven’t read the comic, here’s how Marvel describes them:
Serving amongst the highest of Asgard’s royal court, the Warriors Three have proved a fearsome trio to their enemies, truly living up to the motto of “All for One, and One for All.” Inseparable in battle as well as in leisurely pursuits, the Warriors Three remain unwaveringly loyal to Asgard’s kingdom, citizens, and ideals.
In addition, Stevenson and Dallas talked about working for Branagh, Stevenson talked about wearing a fat suit, Dallas talked about how his character has a Errol Flynn vibe, and a lot more. You can either read or listen to what they had to say after the jump:

Only a day before Marvel’s move adaption of Thor is set to begin shooting a cast shakeup has occurred. The Associated Press is reporting that Stuart Townsend, set to play Thor’s Norse ally, Fandral, will be replaced by Joshua Dallas. Sources close to the production said Townsend left the film due to creative differences.
