Next summer is truly the summer of the superhero. DC is launching its Green Lantern franchise with Ryan Reynolds, while Marvel ups the ante with not one but two big-budget hero movies: Captain America and Thor.
The first trailer for Thor is here, and it’s pretty darn amazing looking. Chris Hemsworth looks the part, and the cast is wisely filled out with seasoned actors like Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard, and Renee Russo. Kenneth Brannagh is an inspired choice as director, because the film has a terrific look and feel that’s faithful to the comics while making the character and his world accessible to mainstream audiences. I’m impressed. And even more so after checking out these high-res screens I captured from the trailer, over which you can ogle every last detail.
