Thor Hammers Out September Home Release Date
Thor was one of the biggest surprised of the year so far. Seriously, Iíd put money on one of this summerís superhero flicks being the biggest flop, Thor would have got my money long before Green Lantern, even in spite of the craptacular nature of the early GL trailers. I mean, sure, most people hadnít heard of Green Lantern, and a movie about a space cop who wears growing green tights, makes giant boxing gloves with his brain, and is powered by a lantern, thatís a hard sell. But Thor? Heís, well, heís Thor. Forsooth.
But while X-Men: First Class is still the best comic-book flick of the summer, Thor turned out to be a pleasant surprise. If youíre one of the folks who shied away because you didnít care about the source material or werenít won over by the marketing, youíll have a second chance to give the God of Thunder a second glance come September. Marvel Studios and Paramount Home Entertainment have scheduled the Blu-ray and DVD release of Thor for September 13th.
The release follows the pattern of ever-expanding combo packs: it will be available as both a three-disc pack (3D Blu-ray, regular Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy) and a two-disc version (Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy). Both sets will include ďover 80 minutes of bonus features, although the press release doesnít lay these out in detail. We do know weíll be getting featurettes focusing on the Marvel universe, director Kenneth Branagh, and the upcoming Avengers movie.
