Tuesday came bearing news that because of apparent script issues, Sony would likely be ditching their proposed May 6, 2011 release date for the latest entry of their hugely successful SPIDER-MAN franchise.

With the first weekend of the 2011 summer movie season now up for grabs, Variety reports that Paramount has done some shuffling, and another Marvel Comics hero will be taking Spidey’s place. Originally slated for May 20th, Kenneth Branagh’s fantasy/super hero epic THOR will be bumped up two weeks to fill the slot.

Disney also appears to have made a quick move, setting the release of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES to Thor’s old spot.

With such a high-profile sequel following closely it’s wake, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of numbers a B-list comic character like Thor will be able to pull from movie-goers. It’s easy to assume that everyone at Paramount and Marvel have their fingers crossed that lightening will strike twice, and that the film will be as well received commercially and critically as 2008’s IRON MAN.

Personally? Even with the respectable cast and director, I think I’m going to have to see a trailer surface before my interest is really sparked.



  • I don't think I've ever considered Thor to be a 'B' list superhero before, but you're right, he's not nearly as well known as Spider-Man… Makes you wonder about 'C' list heroes like Hawkeye, and 'D' list ones like Falcon. I guess I would have considered Iron Man to be 'B' list too, until the movie came out: a film can go a long way to raising their profile, regardless of how much or how little history they have in print.

    I guess I'm buying into the hype, but the cast and director have me convinced that this will work out better than the concept might lead one to believe.

  • Oh, I have nothing against the concept, or anything like that. Just, being only a casual fan of comics at best, Thor in general doesn't immediately spark my interest. I'm sure I'll start buying into it as well once something tangible surfaces.
