“Thor” Production Sets Its Dates

Filming on Marvel’s film adaptation of “Thor” is set to get underway in Los Angeles starting mid-January reports Production Weekly.

Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore and Samuel L. Jackson star in the Kenneth Branagh-directed film which has the powerful but arrogant warrior (Hemsworth) cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment for nearly igniting a war.

Once here, Thor 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.

Shooting will continue for several weeks before moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico from March till late-April.
