Either it's perfect timing, coincidence or brilliant marketing, but the first picture of Marvel's newest movie, Thor, has been released a week before Iron Man 2 comes out in theaters. This is great for Marvel because it already starts planting the seeds to the uninitiated fans that do not know anything about the Asgard warrior. By releasing the picture now, fans can start brushing up on their knowledge and become acquainted with the story of Thor.
The photo release might also have something to do with the rumored secret scene at the end credits of Iron Man 2. Is this picture from that scene? All I have to say is that judging from the picture Chris Hemsworth looks ready to do battle with Loki and all who oppose him.Thor is set to release in theatres on May 6, 2011.
