In his struggles against good and evil, the Mighty Thor ends up getting stripped of his super powers … but not his super charm!
Thor’s father, King Odin (a.k.a. Anthony Hopkins with an eye patch and a whole warrior’s wardrobe), must now decide who will be the next Thor. Will it be Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth)? Or will it be his angst-ridden brother Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston … picture on bottom-left)? Soon the fates will be clear: There can be only one Thor.
P.S.: Thor is now available on VHS. Grab a copy today!
P.P.S: Be on the lookout for a special guest appearance from cameo film star Stan Lee!

Three main topics inspired this article: Marvel Comic’s movie The Mighty Thor (2011) and the movie Hammer of the Gods (2009), and how Vikings never wore horns on their helmets, except during moments of prayer.
In Hammer of the Gods, Home Improvement’s Zachery Ty Bryan, stars as Thor, the God of Thunder. Only he has amnesia. To his Viking buddies, he is just an ordinary guy who happens to have the name Thor. You see, without his famous hammer, he can’t remember who he is. And he’s pretty powerless, too, as we see here in this film clip:
The legendary hammer is, in fact, locked away in a temple on a mountaintop, guarded by a couple of unlikely villains:
1) a tribe of mostly hairless werewolves (mainly covered in black paint to cut back on hair effects, which can be quite costly on movie productions)
2) a traitorous Viking in Thor’s midst (but Thor saw it coming, especially after they waved swords at each other, menacingly, from opposing cliffsides).
Harrowing? Yes! Do we deserve more? Yes, as long as Thor himself is up to it, which I am sure he is.
