Will the REAL Thor Show Thyself....

Will the REAL Thor Show Thyself....

Marvel has their "Thor" movie coming in May... and so does The Asylum.

If you were wondering what Richard Grieco (TV's "Booker") is up to these days, well wonder no more. It seems that The Asylum, notorious for producing titles that capitalize on productions by major studios, is releasing their own Thor movie called Almighty Thor. But the best part is that Richard Grieco will be playing Loki. (Yes, that is Loki on the right.)

From Wikipedia:

"When the demon god Loki (Richard Grieco) destroys the fortress of Valhalla and steals the Hammer of Invincibility, only the young hero Thor (Cody Deal) can protect Earth from Armageddon."

For those of you hoping to see this in the theaters as well, it is a direct-to-video release only. Almighty Thor is scheduled for May 10, 2011, which is 4 days after Marvel's own Thor movie arrives in theaters here in the U.S.

Also starring are Kevin Nash (yep, the wrestler) as Odin (with both his eyes in tact), Patricia Velásquez as Járnsaxa (??), and newcomer Cody Deal as Thor. And unfortunately, it looks as if there will be no helmets in this film.

I love how they do things like this in the hope that some poor grand parent will get mixed up and buy it for their grandchildren thinking that is the Hollywood Blockbuster sharing a similar name!
Supes17 - 3/9/2011, 1:45 PM
Stanley and I had the same reaction...
HelaGood - 3/9/2011, 1:45 PM
is it just me or does Richard Grieco look more and more like Charlie Sheen these days... they must be doing the same drugs.
spiderneil - 3/9/2011, 1:50 PM
the years haven't been kind to richard grieco. 21 jump street was a lifetime ago.
TREE24K - 3/9/2011, 1:52 PM
Yeah they're doing the same drug. Its called "Charlie Sheen."
dfresh - 3/9/2011, 1:55 PM
The years haven't been kind? You're being kind. He looks like an AIDS patient with cancer in that photo.

This is no biggie. this company milks all the idiots thinking that "this" Thor is the same one. They made a battle:LA one too called...get this, Battle for Los Angeles
CapFan79 - 3/9/2011, 1:58 PM
The Asylum. Ha ha. These are soooo bad. Loved Transmorphers 1 & 2! I had a friend who was an actor in these movies. Terrible.

This actually looks better than Marvel's Thor.... Hahahah! Just kidding of course! Made you look though, didn't I Intruder? ;) Hehehe!
As if I needed an argument to not watch this, the article mentions Kevin Nash as Odin... Oh yeah, really excited now. That first pic looks like the cover of an 80s pop rock/punk group entitled Black Tears of Berlin... which I made up... so don't waste your time looking for it on google.

@Tree24K, dig the avatar! Happy early 3/11 day! Planning to celebrate?
Dumegg - 3/9/2011, 2:12 PM
what an utter piece garbage this movie looks like.
what idiot looked at that script and thought, lets
turn this gem into a movie? the only good this movie will do is as torture for the inmates of guantanamo bay.
Lert - 3/9/2011, 2:13 PM
dc... your move?
ClarkFarley2012 - 3/9/2011, 2:14 PM
Whoever came up with this, I ought to slap them like Anthony Hopskins did that lil girl in The Rite!! Freakin' garbage!!
Dumegg - 3/9/2011, 2:25 PM
Hammer of Invincibility?.... is that because they dont
know how to pronounce MJOLNIR?
HelaGood - 3/9/2011, 2:29 PM
@Dumegg im surprised they didnt just go with RINLOJM. lol

also, looks like Loki is wearing one of Christian Bale's hand-me-downs...
Ruben - 3/9/2011, 2:36 PM
This is really old news
Amazo - 3/9/2011, 2:36 PM
This film is getting waaaaayyyy too much publicity on this site.This is I believe,the third story at least I've seen about it.It was a bag'o'shite then and it's a bag'o'shite now.Please let it die....and it isn't even a CBM!
Dumegg - 3/9/2011, 2:40 PM
@helagood-yeah, no doubt. and as we all know, loki is a....demon?
you got to wonder if they even picked up a norse mythology book or if they even heard of the word mythology.
Ironfistninja - 3/9/2011, 2:49 PM
I know Cody Deal, SUPER NICE GUY...SUPER NICE he used to train with me at my dojo in las vegas. I remember when he left he said he had a screen test for Thor. I assumed he meant the marvel movie and when they announced Chris i thought that sucked for Cody. Glad he is doing his thing and I will watch this movie.
ThePrince - 3/9/2011, 2:54 PM
are you serious? theres going to be a movie where Loki is played by the King of "21 Jump Street"?
BeeMo - 3/9/2011, 2:57 PM
This looks better than Marvel's Thor!

I REALLY couldn't help myself on that one!
That was just for YOU, intruder!!

Spock - 3/9/2011, 2:58 PM
Your joking right, Have at The! Sounds like SyFy would do something like this..
HelaGood - 3/9/2011, 3:02 PM
@Spock i wouldnt be surprised if we saw it on SyFy a bit earlier than the release on DVD.
ecksmanfan - 3/9/2011, 3:05 PM
@Amazo- you are correct! This is old news, been reported multiple times! Each time I see it...it turns me ill.

Still, it's not as bad as the Thor movie that SyFy put together a couple years back. It "starred" Zachery Ty Brian, the older son from Home Improvement. It was gawd aweful!
loganoneil - 3/9/2011, 3:10 PM
Wow, Grieco looks like warmed-over sh!t! Whaddaya' wanna' bet this ends up on the Syfy Network? LMAO!
Superbatprime - 3/9/2011, 3:17 PM
Ah yes, more woolly sweaters dyed grey for chainmail.
Silver spray paint on bits of old tire for "armour".

The budget is ten pounds... and they spent a fiver on crisps and drinks eh?
Spock - 3/9/2011, 3:19 PM
@ HelaGood I hear u!
HelaGood - 3/9/2011, 3:30 PM
@Maven LMAO!

deanwilkins - 3/9/2011, 3:36 PM

Helmets are gay. Live with it.

jaysin420 - 3/9/2011, 4:00 PM
I can't imagine it being worse than the Thor movie I saw last year starring the oldest kid from Home Improvement.
