Thor Begins Production in January
Posted 11.13.09 by Ryan
ProductionWeekly used its Twitter account to announce that Thor was heading in front of the cameras early next year.
Filming on Marvel's Thor is scheduled to begin in LA mid-January, then move to Santa Fe, New Mexico from March till late-April.
Ending the shoot in late April gives Kenneth Branagh and company a full year of post-production to make sure Thor is ready for its current May 20, 2011, release date. (Originally, it was set for a July 16, 2010 release.)
Thor follows the god of thunder as he is banished to Earth when his reckless behavior re-ignites an ancient war. Once on Earth, he must learn the true meaning of a hero as he fights the dark forces of Asgard that have invaded his new planet. Thor, along with Iron Man 2 and Captain America: The First Avenger will help set the table for Marvel's 2011 production, The Avengers.
