Chris Hemsworth as ThorMIGHTY MJOLNIR!

The first still from the hotly anticipated film adaptation of Marvel Comics’ hammer-slinging hero has been handed down from Asgard!

Check out the image here at right (click for larger view) of Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Thor.

As this one tantalizing picture shows, Thor will be clad in the character’s traditional steel bracer armour with the classic red cape from Jack Kirby’s original designs. This image will hopefully put to rest the fears of fans that the film production would try too hard to ‘contemporize’ the look and feel of the character.

While details about the movie have been harder to come across then a Viking at a salad bar, the cast list has been released and the basic plot has been made public. The Kenneth Branagh-directed feature will star the aforementioned Australian actor Chris Hemsworth (last seen as Kirk’s dad in Star Trek) as the Norse God of Thunder, a mythical warrior who is banished to Earth for his arrogance and is forced to learn what it means to truly be a hero. Rounding out the stellar cast is geek sex icon Natalie Portman (Star Wars, V for Vendetta, AND Harvard educated? Excuse me while I wipe away the drool) as love interest Jane Foster; Hannibal Lector himself Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and British stage and television actor Tom Hiddleston as Thor’s villainous half-brother Loki.

It’s enough to throw a comic book/mythology geek into convulsions of glee. But the real question still remains: When will we get to see Mjolnir, Thor’s mighty hammer?

Thor is set to be released on May 6, 2011.
