For all the current buzz about Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 2, which has already opened in some regions and opens in the U.S. on May 7, there’s already a slightly lower hum generating for Marvel’s next movie, the first feature film based on Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Norse God Thor.
Although the movie has been shooting for months, it’s somewhat surprising how little has gotten out other than a recent spy picture, so many have been wondering when we might get a chance to see the film’s unconventional choice to play the Thunder God, little known Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, in costume.
Well, the wait is over as we have received the very first picture of just that. You can check out Hemsworth in the Thor costume (sans his mighty hammer Mjolnir) below! Thor opens on May 6, 2011.
