I was never a real fan of the Thor comic books when I was a kid. The guy just didn't seem like a superhero to me. Thought he was rather goofy looking. After watching this trailer, I can't wait for this movie to come out.
Hate to start a new thread but in watching the Thor trailer I decided to go to Hulu and see what else was coming out, lo and behold June 17 2011.
YouTube - Green Lantern Movie Trailer Official (HD)
Green Lantern is my favorite series. I can't even describe how excited I am for that movie, especially after seeing some stills from the set.
I hate, HATE DC Comics, but I really dig Green Lantern.

X-Men (Mainly Wolverine, Colossus & Gambit)
Avengers (as a unit)
Power Man & Iron Fist
Justice League (as a unit, I was always a sucker for groups)
I could pretty much get by on those alone. They also seemed to have the best villains as well.
What happened to Thor's helmet with wings? I realize they have to modernize the costumes but i almost equate it to the way they update uniforms in the NFL to make them look over the top modern and hip. Like Oregon;s unis, the Bengals....the Broncos.
Thor's voice should have been like that of Darth Vader's...something that commands respect and fear. Not sounding like Laurence Olivier.
The only DC comic I bought when i collected them from 1974-1980 was Firestorm. I bought it beacuse it was the 1st one.
Just like The Defenders, The Invaders, Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider Man, Marvel Girl.
Kenneth Branagh in Empire Magazine:
"I wanted there to be a contemporary element to the story. The idea of a fish out of water, an exotic Asgardian coming to present-day Earth, was important to me. We also wanted family dynamics to be at the centre of things. We looked at relationships in a way that is paralleled by Biblical stories: deadly sibling rivalry, parents at war with children, the isolation of the tight royal circle. Shakespeare's treatment of familial problems endured by the rich and powerful was also an inspiration."

I will see anything and everything with Natalie Portman. I even saw Black Swan.
I have to admit, however, that the odds of me marrying her have dipped just a bit since she got pregnant and engaged. I'm still holding out hope, though. lol

The walking suit of armor is The Destroyer Armor. Some of the best Marvel Thor stories revolve around that armor.

I was primarily a DC guy.... World's Finest, Adventure, Detective, Superman, Batman, etc., etc., but I loved various Marvel characters, the FF was my favorite. Also... Capt. America, Hulk, Spiderman, and Thor.
I think the reason, as a kid, that I leaned more DC was because Marvel comics were always continuing, meaning, the storyline could go 4-6 successive monthly episodes before conclusion. So you always had to wait a month for the next episode to come out to see what happened. Way to much to expect for an impatient child. LOL
But I loved Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
