As "Thor" is scheduled to start production later in January, crew and cast have begun preparing for the making of the film. Most recently, this upcoming Kenneth Branagh-directed movie had costume tests, which have been described by President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige through his statement posted on Marvel official website.

"To be honest the thing that I'm most excited about right now though, is the screen test we just finished for 'Thor'," Feige shared. "We've done some costume tests and watching the Asgardians walk onto the sound stage takes me back to that first time I saw the 'X-Men' on the set all together in Toronto. Only it was unlike anything we've ever put on film before!"

"It's great to be starting the next decade in such an exciting way just as we did last decade," he additionally said on the superhero movie project. "We're really redefining the comic book genre and what a Marvel movie can be. It's going to be great."

"Thor" is an epic adventure that spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. The story centers on Chris Hemsworth's Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior, who is cast down to Earth due to his reckless actions, but he later learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of Asgard tries to invade Earth. The film is slated for a May 20, 2011 release date in the U.S.

"takes me back to that first time I saw the 'X-Men' on the set all together in Toronto" So the characters are all dressed in drab black leather with little-to-no individuality or imagination? Wow, sounds ...awesome. Seriously though, I have a hell of a lot more faith in Branagh than I would most others folks...Marvel employees included

If there was a betting line in Vegas I would be 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.
