Back from the San Diego Comic-Con! I didn’t take many pictures this year, but here’s one. I didn’t know what it was for a long time, and eventually had to go up and ask one of the guys working there — turns out it’s Odin’s throne from Marvel’s new Thor movie. The actual set piece they used. It’s pretty fucking huge. And shiny.
The guy also mentioned that Anthony Hopkins is playing Odin. I was surprised, but not as surprised as I was when the dude laid the next bombshell on me: the movie is being directed by Kenneth Branagh. Kenneth fuckin “Henry V” Branagh is directing Marvel’s new superhero movie?
I am still kind of reeling from the mindblownness.
