What to Expect From Thor: Tales of Asgard

When: September 2009

Who is in it: Not much is know about this yet, other than it features Thor and Loki going on a quest, maybe to find Thor's hammer?

What to expect: Thus far, the Marvel line of films has not been as strong as the DC line, then again, the last release Hulk Vs. was pretty enjoyable (Hulk v Thor was better than Hulk v Wolverine by the way). While this line of DVDs was launched with a mantra of being for mature audiences with PG-13 content, Marvel has yet to really embrace mission. Hulk Vs has plenty or blood, so maybe they are getting on track, but before that The Next Avengers was basically a Teen Avengers for kids. The Iron Man and Dr Strange animated films likewise didn't really seem to mature.

I did watch a sneak peek of Thor, and it makes me think this is more like Iron Man and less like Hulk Vs. The film looks to feature a happy-go-lucky teen aged Thor rather than a seasoned hero. I could be wrong, but if I am not, I just have to ask whats the point? Why not adapt some classic Thor story from the comics? The guy has been around for over 40 years, he has to have some decent story to tell, right?

There should be more news on this in the next couple of months.
