First Look at Marvel’s 'Thor'!

Chris Hemsworth in ThorWith only one week to go before Iron Man 2 hits theaters, Paramount and Marvel have decided to reveal the first image of the superhero whose movie is set to debut after Iron Man 2 (in 2011, of course): Thor. You may not be all too familiar with Chris Hemsworth now, but you have plenty of time to get to know him as Marvel slowly unspools its marketing campaign through 2010 and 2011 leading up to the film’s May 6th, 2011 release date.

I like this image, too. Of course they’re not giving us the money shot of Thor all suited up with a winged helmet and giant hammer. They’re giving us the close-up of Thor, with just enough to make out that iconic red and blue costume without revealing too much since we’re still a year away from the movie. It’ll be interesting to see how both Thor and Captain America do in theaters following in the footsteps of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. Downey Jr., I think, played a huge part in the success of the Iron Man franchise, though Edward Norton didn’t really do enough to earn Hulk an immediate sequel. Can guys like Hemsworth and Chris Evans ignite fanboy fire when they take over the big screen in their own respective superhero costumes? Only time will tell…

What do you think of this first image of Thor? Does it get you excited for the film?
