The movie is part of the, " Marvel Universe ", of superheroes and will be put out on May 5th of next year. They showed a preview picture of the actor, in costume, who will play Thor. First he was wearing a blue costume with what looked to be a red cape! Looked a little like superman if you ask me. And unfortunately they went for a very Wagnerian version of our beloved God. You know blonde hair, blue eyes, and blonde beard. Marvel turned our God into an Aryan that would have fit right in with the Nazi ideal !
I find this to be rather offensive ! From the Eddas and from my minds eye I have a clear view of how our beloved God Thor should look. He has flowing red hair, a beard of the same color that crackles like a power line with electricity, and eyes that are green, but turn a glowing red when he is angered.
Thor means a lot to me ! He is not distant like some of the Gods and Goddesses are to me. I consider him to be a friend and constant companion. When I do something wrong it is his glaring eyes I feel upon me. If I do something funny it is his bellowing laughter I hear. And if I stumble and fall it is by His mighty hand that I rise. So when I see this movie version of Thor I am both disappointed and disgusted.
I wonder how Christians would feel if they put a cape on Jesus and had him flying around saving people ! I don't think they would be favorable to the idea. I still remember the furor over Mel Gibson's movie, The Last Temptation of Christ !
I will not waste my time or my money on this disrespectful version of our beloved God Thor. I love and respect him too much to dishonor him like that.
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
