The powerful but arrogant god Thor is cast out of Asgard to live amongst humans in Midgard (Earth), where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.
This is Sir Anthony Hopkins' first comic book movie (The Mask of Zorro (1998) does not count; Zorro started in prose). He was previously offered the role of Alfred in Batman Begins (2005).
Wait for it.
When the hammer, racing towards Thor breaks the sound barrier, you hear the thump before the hammer arrives. Not going to happen. Sight (light very fast) then hammer, last the sound arrives.
There is a statement at the end of the closing credits: "Thor will return in The Avengers (2012)."
The version of the film shows in AMC Theaters as part of a pre-Avengers Marvel Phase One marathon features an exclusive intro from Agent Coulson, talking about the film and the character. These Coulson intros were later includes as bonuses in the Avengers Phase One box set.
