Fans can expect a lot from Thor it seems.
In a recent discussion with Empire Online, Thor director Matthew Vaughn dropped some hints about how this new cinematic incarnation might look.
"They actually said to me, 'You are going to make Thor more macho? Right?' Well, don't worry - Thor's not going to be wearing a dress." Vaughn stated when discussing the character's seminal look.
"When I went into Marvel for my first X-Men meeting, I saw a figure on the desk and said 'are you guys are going to make Thor?' They said, 'We're just going to commission a script. We want to do it like Gladiator with Norse mythology and the birth of a superhero.'" The director said when discussing the genesis of this project. "That really stuck in my mind. And when Marvel saw Stardust, they asked me to do it. So here I am, back again and prepping Thor."
Lastly, "My only concern initially was that it's another fantasy film [after Stardust]," Vaughn offered. "But it's different in the sense that it's a superhero film set in the world of fantasy. You've got Thor and Odin and it's set in Asgard - it's not going to be like The Lord Of The Rings or even Narnia. I think it's important to keep it comic book. We're not doing the Thor of Norse mythology. We're doing the Marvel Thor."
