Part of the closing credits is shot through the Bifrost, with the camera flying through the cosmic realm of Yggdrasil, finally ending at Asgard. At the close, the film title appears with a small lightning strike within it. See more »
Thor was much much better than I expected. I didn't know if they could
pull of the balance between the Norse mythology stuff and the real
world Marvel Universe. I should've known better because Marvel knows
their characters and knows what we want to see. Spider-Man set a new
standard for the superhero film genre back in the day. Iron Man upped
the ante. Thor takes the ball and runs with it and places that bar even
higher. I look forward to seeing it again and know it will do well
enough to be worthy of a sequel because word of mouth is going to be
great. Trust me when I say Thor REALLY IS as good as Iron Man and is
most worthy to be called one of the greatest adaptations ever.
Chris Hemsworth as the Norse god Thor, and Tom Hiddleston as his
villainous brother Loki show they have the acting ability and star
quality to become mega-marquee names in the future. Marvel found two
absolute diamonds in the rough. Both actors make a HUGE impression and
are wonderful on screen. You knew Acedemy Award winners Anthony Hopkins
and Natalie Portman would bring it but these relative unkowns more than
hold their own on screen. I know the script is written mostly for them
but they carry it in a big way. From what I've read, Hemsworth and
Hiddleston were cast almost a year in advance of filming the story so,
they had time to get into shape and do character research. They certain
did these long-time Marvel greats proud. Intelligent comic-book popcorn
epics are rare and this one is definitely a cut above the usual fare.
