Here's how Marvel describes the film:

" The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth. Kenneth Branagh directs this fantasy epic which stars Australian actor Chris Hemsworth as the ancient Norse god, Tom Hiddleston as his evil brother Loki, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, a young woman who befriends Thor on Earth, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Thor's father and king of Asgard."

IMAGE COMICS' '68 MINI-SERIES

Image Comics has announced that Mark Kidwell, Nat Jones and Jay Fotos are following their one-shot comic '68 with a four-issue mini-series that continues the Vietnam/Zombie epic.

The '68 mini-series -- targeted for a fourth quarter 2010 release -- picks up where the original tale left off and broadens its scope, encompassing not only the gore-soaked horrors of the war in the east, but also the politically torn United States as the dead rise, heralding the apocalypse and devouring anything with a pulse.

"Nat, Jay and I have wanted to expand on the story in '68 for years," Kidwell said, "but other commitments and projects just kept getting in the way. All the roadblocks are down now, and we're revving full-tilt boogie back into the jungle."

"This is what we do," Jones said. "We are horror guys, and jumping back into the world of '68 really gets our creative juices going! We have a lot more story to tell and more importantly, we are having a lot of grisly fun with it!"

The new series will also feature 4- to 5-page back-up stories that tie directly into the main plotline. Tim Vigil is providing the art.
