Check out this brand new photo of The Gods of Thor (featuring Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins and Tom Hiddleston). The photo comes courtesy the LA Times’ Hero Complex blog which also reports that both Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger will be released in 3D (both films will — unfortunately — will be converted in post):
“We came to feel that in our case 3-D could be the very good friend of story and character for a different kind of experience,” Branagh said, taking a break from post-production. The filmmaker said the terminology of the 3-D process initially made him cringe — at first, it was “math and physics and way over my head,” he said with a chuckle — but then he started to pulse with the unexpected artistic opportunities.
“It’s another draft of the story that can reveal itself in a different way,” he said. “I had a healthy degree of skepticism up front … I’ve become somebody extremely excited about working with possibilities of doing it this way.”
To ease concerns of another crappy 2D to 3D conversion (i.e “Clash of the Titans” and “The Last Airbender”), Marvel promises they’ll do it right and on the plus side the special effects for both films “were conceived and executed from the beginning in 3-D”, according to the Hero Complex article.
Thor is scheduled to hit theaters on May 6, 2011 followed by Captain America: The First Avenger on July 22, 2011.
