Marvel President Describes 'Thor' Costume Tests
MTV.com, 4 January 2010
With director Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of “Thor” scheduled to begin filming later this month, further updates from the set have begun to spring up online.
“To be honest the thing that I'm most excited about right now though, is the screen test we just finished for ‘Thor’, related Marvel President Kevin Feige in a retrospective on Marvel’s feature films posted on Marvel.com. “We've done some costume tests and watching the Asgardians walk onto the sound stage takes me back to that first time I saw the X-Men on the set all together in Toronto. Only it was unlike anything we've ever put on film before!"
"It's great to be starting the next decade in such an exciting way just as we did last decade," he continued. "We're really redefining the comic book genre and what a Marvel movie can be. It's going to be great.”
Over the weekend, Adam Sabodish — a costume assistant on “Thor” — left the following update on his twitter page. “Busy Saturday in Asgard, [Chris Hemsworth’s] fitting went well, Stuart [Townsend] is up next. This film might actually get made. Finally. Then I could sleep in!”
Last month, actress Jaimie Alexander also posted several comments about the stunt rehearsals for her role as Sif, including a slight mishap with Townsend — who will portray Fandral of the Warriors Three. “[I feel] bad for accidentally punching Fandral in the stomach. Good thing he's a sweet guy!”
