Slated for an April 23 release and directed by Kenneth Branagh, "Thor" stars Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Chris Hemsworth in the titular role as Thor. Based on the Marvel Comic, Odin decides to teach his arrogant son a lesson and banishes Thor to Earth in order to learn humility. Along with Portman, Hiddleston and Hemsworth, the rest of the cast includes Sir Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaime Alexander, Ray Stevenson and Kat Dennings. The film ties into events from the end of "Iron Man 2" and leads up to the impending "Avengers" film written and directed by Joss Whedon.
