Super Bowl ads, BYOG (Bring Your Own Guacamole)
Ha ha, you have to sit through some more credits.
We’ve got a few little spoilers the Marvel lawyers are apparently frantic about.
Even the Nordic demi-god can’t fathom the scale of this film.
Here’s a rundown of the tent-pole trailers that will air in between talking baby ads and horses farting.
Not ones to be outdone by Spider-Man, Captain America and Thor would like you to know that they that they look pretty cool in their superhero clothes too.
Maybe Thor vs. The Green Hornet would be a pretty one-sided street fight, but their respective marketing teams have released competitively badass new movie posters.
Jeremy Renner will be making a brief appearance as Hawkeye in the upcoming Thor. It’s all part of Marvel’s plan to tease Joss Whedon’s The Avengers until anticipation has reached a fever pitched, and then consequently plummeted.
Marvel has dropped the new trailer for Thor after debuting the Spawn-esque poster earlier today. It stars Chris Hemsworth as the superhero whose weapon of choice is a heavy-ass hammer. Anthony Hopkins plays Odin/Steam Punk Santa.
Chris Hemsworth dresses up like Spawn for the Thor poster.
If a superhero is going to have a mentor, it should be someone major like Brando or The Dude. Sir Anthony Hopkins is another good one. Playing Odin in the big movie version of Thor, Sir Anthony enjoyed messing with beefy Chris Hemsworth.
“I’m glad I’m not young anymore because you see their insecurities and I always joke along with them,” Hopkins said while he was promoting the Woody Allen comedy You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. “I say things like, ‘Is that the way you’re going to play it?’ Chris and I got to know each other but he was looking nervous and I said, ‘Oh, is that the way you’re going to play it?’ He said, ‘Yeah, is it okay?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s your career.’’

Good news. The Thor trailer from Comic-Con has been magically leaked onto the internet. Now, instead of fighting with a bunch of 20-something virgins for a spot in Hall H, you can watch the trailer from the comfort of your very own home. You don't even have to risk getting stabbed in the eye with a pen.
So, sit back and relax as the Norse God Thor is banished to Earth by another god who looks suspiciously like Anthony Hopkins. (Cinema Blend)

Hey Thor fans! Have we got a treat for you! In anticipation of this weekend's Comic-Con panel, Marvel released a photo from its upcoming Thor film. In the photo, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is using his fabled hammer (Mjolnir) to smash an evil pile of elephant sh*t.
Careful, Thor. That tank in the background looks flammable! (EmpireOnline)
So basically the Comic-Con teaser posters for Captain America and Thor are awesome. If the films are half as awesome as these gritty, realistic conceptual depictions by artist Ryan Meinerding we're in for an awesome treat.
Look at Captain America up there, deflecting those bullets with his massive patriotic shield. He looks furious and hungry enough to eat a Nazi's face for lunch. Please Joe Johnston, dangle this poster in front of your face for inspiration as you direct the film. If Joel Schumacher would have done such a thing, the bat suit never would have been altered with nipples.

The LA Times has premiered a new pic of the Hall Of Asgard from Marvel's big-screen Thor. In the photo, we see Thor kneeling before Odin as Loki, Frigga, Fandal the Dashing, and Hogun the Grim look on. I don't want to be blasphemous just in case there is a God and he's played by Anthony Hopkins, but this is the Hall Of Asgard? It looks more like the set for a porno awards show. I haven't heard of any plans to have Ron Jeremy accept a Lifetime Achievement Award in the film, but maybe Kenneth Branagh will include that after the credits or as a DVD Easter Egg.
Today we have our first official look at Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin in Marvel's Thor. Oof. One minute you're turning in thoughtful, Oscar-worthy performances. The next, you're threatening to retire because the movie where you pretended to be a feral, chimp man didn't connect with audiences. Then all of a sudden, you're in some weird, muscley armor walking through a Roman sewer with a piece of foil double-sticked to your eye. Thus, is the life of the thespian.The LA Times debuted this photo along with the news that both Thor and Captain America will undergo a 3D post conversion process before hitting theaters. Marvel and the filmmakers are well aware of the challenges this decision creates, and that is why they will spend "an unprecedented amount of time" on the conversion. What do you expect them to do? They've already shot too much footage of hammers and shields being thrown at the camera to turn back now.
"Entertainment Tonight" visited the set of Marvel's Thor and got some facetime with Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman as they flirt up a storm. It's like seriously, dude. You and your c-blocking camera crew should get out of there and give those two some privacy. On second thought, leave the camera. As far as "ET" videos go, this one's kind of hard-hitting. It even shows some restraint (it takes them a full three minutes and nineteen seconds to discuss Chris Hemsworth's workout regimine). In addition; we get a glimpse of Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Hemsworth fesses up to his "Dancing With The Stars" roots. Really? He was on "Dancing With The Stars?" Suddenly this Kim Kardashian as Tomb Raider rumor doesn't sound so far-fetched.Check it out after the jump…
Please relax your eyes and stare at the above image. Now, tell Dr. Johnson what you see. Is it a) early concept art of Chris Hemsworth as Marvel's Thor, b) Will Ferrell dressed as Viggo the Carpathian, or c) Dog the Bounty Hunter accentuating his wardrobe with peacocking flair after reading "The Game?" Answer below.It's Thor, you guys. (Collider)More unofficially official images of Thor after the jump…
Go on, soak it up. Here's the first image of Chris Hemsworth as Marvel's next blockbuster busting character Thor. I'm diggin' the snake skin sleeve. It's like a Hot Topic superhero version of UnderArmor. That material soaks up sweat and brings it to the outside layer so it can dry faster, yo.My guess is the marketing bigwigs are revealing elements of Thor slowly and methodically. As you'll notice, there's no helmet or hammer in the above pic. Also, it's a close-up, so we don't get a good idea of what Thor is brooding over. My first inclination was he's taking a crap, but then I thought it's ridiculous to take a crap with your cape still on. Now if you'll excuse me, my morning coffee is taking effect. **Unbuttons cape, waddles to bathroom** (Yahoo)
He's played a cannibal, a president, an author, an Englishman, and even a black dude. Now, Sir Anthony Hopkins is in talks to play a Norse Allfather in Kenneth Branagh's Thor. Hopkins is said to be for the role of Odin, father to Thor and his evil adopted brother Loki. We can't think of a better candidate to play the ruler of Asgard. Hopkins has the perfect mix of Gandalf, Santa, and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin needed to pull the role off. (Empire)
CHUD was the first to point out that sexy model-actress Diora Baird has announced via Twitter that she has auditioned for a role in the upcoming Thor film. No one is certain which role she read for or if she'll even get the part but it's a slow news morning so conjecture like this makes headlines. Honestly.

Variety reports that Steven Spielberg is set to produce a biopic about the life of inspiring civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.. The King Estate has granted Dreamworks unprecedented access to the intellectual property of Dr. King including his famous, "I Have A Dream" speech. It goes without saying that this is an important film and I sincerely hope that it is done intelligently and respectfully. In other words, don't let George Lucas near it.Check out more morning headlines. Michael Mann talks up his new talkie, Public Enemies. (The Playlist) Thor casts relative unknowns.
