The picâ€™s been out there for a bit, but I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents. Shocking, from someone who maintains a blog, eh? (Though I use the term â€œmaintainsâ€ loosely these days)
I know there is at least one person out there who is going to see this and say: â€œHeâ€™s not big enough to play Thor.â€ That person does not read this blog, but if he did, Iâ€™d just have to tell him that on this topicâ€”as on othersâ€”weâ€™re going to have to agree to disagree, because this pic tells me that Chris Hemsworth is absolutely big enough to play Thor.
The costumes and sets that have been revealed seem to rub some people in the IntarSphere the wrong way. I have to admit to being somewhat unenthused, but itâ€™s also hard to tell how itâ€™ll look on the screen. The costumes for Hogan the Grim and Fandral the Dashingâ€”seen in the throne room picâ€”are excellent.
My optimism and enthusiasm remain undimmed. I trust Kenneth Branagh more than any other director working today. Even if he delivers something less than a masterpiece, he is going to deliver something outstandingâ€”see Mary Shelleyâ€™s Frankenstein for proof positive.
