The same Thor trailer shown exclusively during Marvel’s panel at Comic-Con last weekend, has already made its way on to the internet. Set for release on May 6, 2011, Thor will be the next movie in the Avengers franchise and will take place right where Iron Man 2‘s extra scene after the credits left off.
Thor is being directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars: Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Josh Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Idris Elba, Clark Gregg, and Colm Feore. Here’s an synopsis from an official Marvel press release:
The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, 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.
