In a post at Marvel.com, Marvel Entertainment President, Kevin Feige reflected on his recent reaction to seeing the first screen test for Kenneth Branagh’s Thor:
“To be honest the thing that I’m most excited about right now though, is the screen test we just finished for “Thor.” We’ve done some costume tests and watching the Asgardians walk onto the sound stage takes me back to that first time I saw the X-Men on the set all together in Toronto. Only it was unlike anything we’ve ever put on film before! It’s great to be starting the next decade in such an exciting way just as we did last decade. We’re really redefining the comic book genre and what a Marvel movie can be. It’s going to be great.”
Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, is scheduled to hit theaters on May 20, 2011.
