A trailer showcasing the Kenneth Branagh-directed superhero movie Thor has been released, presumably to plenty of shoulder-shrugging and glazed looks from the general public.
Thor isn’t exactly the most mainstream superhero from the Marvel library. And the Scandinavians might be a little annoyed that Hollywood has appropriated one of their ancient gods for some modern-day ass-kicking. Perhaps in the next millennium Jesus will be re-imagined as a beefcake renegade warrior in whatever interactive, virtual reality entertainment format has evolved to replace cinema. In fact I think Family Guy has already partially been there.
Expect to see Thor in UK cinemas at some point in May after its US release.
