See Chris Hemsworth as Thor

Yahoo have the first official image of Aussie Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Kenneth Branagh‘s upcoming film adaptation of the Marvel comic series of the same name.

That’s it. And now here it is, bigger:

I really dig the look of Hemsworth as Thor. I was concerned that the fallen warrior might be portrayed a little larger than life, complicating matters when we get to that pesky team-up movie The Avengers. However, this image should satiate (at least temporarily) any concerns some may have had about the required mixture of superhero gravitas and real-world relatability required for the role.

You can read the film’s synopsis here, as well as learn about the rest of the cast, which includes Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins.

Thor hits cinemas May 6th, 2011.

Discuss: Are you looking forward to Thor as much as other Marvel properties, such as The First Avenger: Captain America or the long-fabled Antman or Nick Fury movies?
