Thor Goes to Hollywood

Comic Booked Guest Writer 01/20/2011 News

Hey, when you’ve got it, flaunt it!  And that’s what Marvel intends to do.

Thor is heading to theaters this May and to celebrate one of the oldest characters in the Marvel pantheon the House of Ideas is releasing a series of Thor-centric movie poster covers.  That’s a mouthful…in other words, imagine if Thor was in some of our silver screen classics.  What would it look like, you wonder?  Scroll down and take a gander at just two of the forthcoming homages.

Marvel Reveals THOR GOES HOLLYWOOD Variants
The God of Thunder is headed west! Marvel is proud to announce the Thor Goes Hollywood series of variant covers in honor of the Odinson’s upcoming feature film debut. Hitting comics shop just before the release of Marvel Studios’ Thor this May, the covers will see the Mighty Avenger recast in some of cinema’s most iconic roles.
“Fans couldn’t be more excited to finally see Thor hit the big screen and we feel the exact same way,” said Senior Vice President of Sales David Gabriel. “Having Thor pay homage to some of film’s most memorable onscreen moments is just one of the ways that Marvel hopes to broaden Thor’s appeal across all areas of popular culture.”
Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on these hotly anticipated variant covers as Thor continues to generate major mainstream interest in the months to come. No Marvel fan will want to miss the striking results when Thor Goes Hollywood this May!
