The cast and crew for "Thor" will soon start preparing for the production of the film. On Thursday, December 3, actress Jaimie Alexander posted an update on her Twitter page, informing that she will begin rehearsals for the superhero film next week. "Is excited to start rehearsals next week! :) :)" the depicter of skilled Asgardian warrior Sif wrote.

The shooting of "Thor" itself is believed to be kicked off in the middle of January 2010. According to Production Weekly, the principal photography will first take place in Los Angeles. Then, in March, cast and crew will move to Santa Fe in New Mexico to continue filming until late April.

Meanwhile, the set of the action movie project has been built in November. Revealing the news was editor in chief of Marvel Comics Joe Quesada who tweeted, "Cast is in place, sets are being built and screenplay is brilliant." Additionally, comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis claimed he visited the set, writing on his Twitter page, "Visited the sets! I was in Odin's chamber!"

"Thor" is an epic adventure that spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. The story centers on Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. He later learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

Chris Hemsworth has been set to portray the title character and will share screen with Natalie Portman, who takes the role of Thor's first love Jane Foster. Some other actors who will appear in the film include Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, and Samuel L. Jackson. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the movie is scheduled to be premiered in the U.S. on May 20, 2011.

If there was a betting line in Vegas I would bet the director 5 buckoroo's that he make a cheesy 3G filmed like X2 and X3. X1 and Wolverine had the best fight scenes and storyline yet of the X series- well that is if you don't count the Wolverine scene of walking away and blowing up a helicopter after a stupid deathwish joke by the crash victims; or the short and little detail fight scenes of Gambit and B-eyes peas guy. Overall, if thor is not adapted to the 3G effects used in Spidey1 and Spidey2 with "God of War" battles with the evil doers. Thor will be a bust right from start because it hard to create realism from a Greek Mythology and bring it to earth. Sorta like Alien- the Requiem. Hard to put the story line together with no true pre-battles and no similar fantasy environment on earth. On first movie, it probably best to keep Thor in Asgard to build story line to Thor2 on Earth.
