Everything We Know About The Mighty Thor The

The Marvel Universe continues to unfurl in theaters this May with Iron Man 2, but we're already turning our attention to May 2011 -- that's when Thor hits the big screen. The film adaptation of the classic Marvel comic has been in development for years, but shooting is finally underway.

Principle photography started in early January at Marvel's co-opted Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach, Calif. Actor-filmmaker Kenneth Branagh, best known directorially for his Shakespearean flicks like Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing, is helming the flick. We spoke with him on-camera about the project back in 2008.

The screenplay for Thor was penned by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend) as well as Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz, and Don Payne (The Simpsons). Marvel Studios' President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel, and Marvel Studio's Co-President, Louis D'Esposito, are serving as executive producers.
