I'm somewhat excited about Thor. Having never read the comic seeing as how it's a Marvel Comics title, I still enjoy mythological stories and Thor falls right into that category.
I think Chris Hemsworth, who we've seen play as George Kirk in the recently released Star Trek, is a perfect choice for the role of Thor. However, I think he'll need to beef himself up a bit in order to look more the part.
I find it interesting that, of all people, Kenneth Branagh is picked to direct this film. Branagh is an exceptionally acomplished actor and director whom I never would have picture being apart of a comic book film. I'm glad to see he doesn't few the comic book genre as something beneath him.
