Finally, we have some on-set footage of actors and sets for "Thor"... unfortunately, it's from "Entertainment Tonight," so the "interview" is more interested in Chris Hemsworth's appearance on "Dancing With The Stars." Though it IS mildly amusing to watch Hemsworth and Portman doing what appears to be either a really good impression of actors who hooked-up while making a movie OR a really bad impression of actors who didn't hook-up while making a movie.
In any case, we've got our first look at Anthony Hopkins as Odin and - at about 3:56 - Idris Elba as Heimdall. Hopkins looks about like you'd expect, but Heimdall.... holy SHIT! Dig that crazy Kirby-esque armor, complete with the bright red and gold finish and the HUGE horns (wings?) on the helmet. Set rumors have been saying that Thor's "Asgard" stuff is shockingly faithful to the 60s to 80s comic designs, and this seems to agree with that. Crom... does this means Loki is going to have the gold/green outfit and the big curled horns? I hope so...
Here's what REALLY intrigues me, though (Iron Man 2 SPOILER WARNING): Right near the start, we see Thor in what I guess are his "street clothes" (or maybe it's a rehersal?) beating up some uniformed guards (soldiers?) in what looks like a temporary military installation. Other "Earth" scenes seem to be set in an American desert locale. Remember Nick Fury complaining about his "trouble in the Southwest" in Iron Man 2? Is THIS what he was talking about? Are those military-looking guys S.H.I.E.L.D.? Is that part of the story here, S.H.I.E.L.D. trying to contain or "cover up" Asgardians or whatnot on Earth?
This is really happening.
