THOR just gets sillier and sillier with a new set photo
Sometimes a film’s potential can’t make up for just how silly it may or may not look.
The upcoming Marvel led adaptation of their comic book giant, Thor, is one of those times.
Yes, the film’s cast is great, featuring actors like Chris Hemsworth, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman, and it’s director, Kenneth Branagh, is the perfect director to take on this material. But I’m hard pressed to think of a film who has had as completely silly official photos released. First there was a horribly comedic concept photo which profiled Thor’s suit, and a few sets of the latest official set photos. One in particular, a still of an eye patch wearing Anthony Hopkins as Odin, has really killed much of my anticipation.
Now thanks to the LA Times (via /Film), we have the death blow to that anticipation.
The photo features what looks to be the throne of Odin, in what is best described as CLASH OF THE TITANS meets BATMAN AND ROBIN. It’s far too campy for what Marvel has been producing as of late, and while that is what could have been expected, I definitely didn’t expect it to go this far off the deep end of crazy silliness.
