Perhaps the real news here is that the LA Times has a shiny new promo image from Marvel's deep-in-post Thor, giving us our first good look at Anthony Hopkins' Odin and Tom Hiddleston's Loki (Thor himself is hanging out too, but it's nothing we haven't seen before). I personally dig what they're going for here, giving the Norse gods a comic booky, science fiction look instead of going with old school armor. We're probably going to be given some sort of sci-fi explanation for Thor's world and its inhabitants' powers, so at least they'll look the part.

So there you go. That's some news. You should really go ahead and click on over to LA Times and check out a much larger version so you can make sure your scrutiny still works.

The other half of this news isn't too surprising or encouraging: Thor and it's summer partner, Captain America, will be in 3D. Neither will be shot with 3D cameras, but will go through the dreaded "post conversion," the same method that created the murky, dull and entirely unwatchable 3D seen in Alice in Wonderland, Clash of the Titans and The Last Airbender.
