Feature Interview

From Hamlet to Hammer Time

An interview with Thor director Kenneth Branagh

There’s little doubt that 2011 will be known as the Summer of the Superhero. The epic Marvel Comics / Paramount Pictures adaptation of Thor started it off with a mighty THWAK-A-BOOM!, pulling in nearly $66 million on its opening weekend. Still to come on this summer’s comic book front are X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern and Captain America: The First Avenger. We took the opportunity to call up Thor’s famed director, Shakespeare-loving Brit Kenneth Branagh, and discuss our mutual love for men in tights.

Webgame Wednesday: Thor: Bring The Thunder

Thor smacked a big ol' Midgard Serpent-sized hole in the box office this last weekend.

The Norse God of Thunder has never looked cuter than in this Mega Man-inspired 8-bit platformer. Jump around, bust up trolls with your hammer and, of course, power up for the titular boom-shaka-laka.
