What do you think? Because I'm a cynic I'm still not too into it. I'm getting kind of a Masters of the Universe vibe, in fact. Asgard looks terribly gaudy, Anthony Hopkins sounds like a bad mix of Marlon Brando in Superman and Laurence Olivier in Clash of the Titans, and so far I find Chris Hemworth and Natalie Portman to be mismatched. BUT I do love all the scenes with Clark Gregg, I think The Destroyer looks awesome, and I actually am fine with the Iron Man reference in spite of the general annoyance of the franchise integrations so far. Plus, it's likely the best of the movie's effects weren't ready for an early preview and unlike the kids at Comic-Con, we don't get to see Hemsworth's abs popping out in 3D.
So I'm not exactly trying to start the backlash since I remain hopeful that Branagh will deliver a great film. I used to read Thor comics as a kid and always found them rather silly. I should expect to have the same reaction to this adaptation.
