Feature audio commentary by director
MARVEL ONE-SHOT: THE CONSULTANT- a prequel of sorts that ties in
the ending of THE INCREDIBLE HULK with THE AVENGERS. Slightly amusing, but you can skip it and not miss anything.
FROM ASGARD TO EARTH- the
production design and costume design of THOR including the special effects that went into the Rainbow
Bridge. They reveal they first thought
of having Thor banished to Viking era Earth before settling on a small town in New Mexico
during present day.
OUR FEARLESS LEADER- a featurette
about the director of the film
ASSEMBLING THE TROUPE- the
cast of THOR
HAMMER TIME- designing and creating
the hammer of THOR in addition to seeing production and rehearsal footage of Chris Hemsworth using the hammer in action.
CREATING LAUFEY- the visuals that
went into creating LAUFEY, King of the Frost Giants
MUSIC OF THE GODS- the music score
A CONVERSATION- Co-Producer Craig
Kyle talks with Stan Lee as comics writer/ screenwriter/ BABYLON 5 creator JMS
looks. Stan Lee asks questions about the look of the film and makes comments
on the script. He thinks this movie will stand above the other Marvel films. I think other Marvel films this year like CAPTAIN AMERICA
and X-MEN: FIRST CLASS were better than THOR.
ROAD TO THE AVENGERS- a
featurette on the THE AVNGERS film and I wish they rather had included THE AVENGERS teaser trailer shown at the end of CAPTAIN
8 deleted scenes and three extended scenes with optional audio commentary. Kenneth Branagh reveals what they
were trying to do with each scene and sometimes says why the bits were cut.
Some of the deleted scenes would slow down the pacing while others would have gave a little extra depth to the film.
Also included are the teaser trailer, the theatrical trailer, and a trailer
for an animated AVENGERS film. The DVD is included in the combo pack and it has a digital copy on it too.
FINAL ANALYSIS: THOR is an entertaining superhero drama which could
have been better. The extras are very informative and the deleted scenes are the best extra on the Blu-ray.
