Three, Is The Magic Number


We've had a peek at Thor's costume and now we get to have a little look at old Odin and the nefarious Loki, himself.  I'll freely admit that when I first saw these, I wasn't convinced. But on subsequent viewings they have grown on me. Hopkins absolutely owns his, the man is brilliant.  And is that Mj√∂llnir I spy in Thor's hand? That could do some serious damage! It looks as though they have opted for something more mace-like than has been portrayed in the comic books down the years.

Strangely, it doesn't seem out of place when I look at it. Hopefully we'll see more of the weapons of the Asguardian gods. That could be very cool. 

In other news related to Thor (and Captain America), both features will be presented in 3D. Just imagine the Rainbow Bridge in 3D...or Caps' shield coming at you! Great stuff!

There will be more news when we have it, folks.
