Thor Animated Series To Follow 2010 Movie


After acquiring my Thor Hasbro Mighty Mugg today (along with many others that are making my wallet scream for mercy) it seemed fitting to report that Marvel Animation is developing and self-producing a 26 half-hour episode series based on its long-running comic book "Thor," with the series targeted to launch in fall 2010, following Marvel's live-action feature Thor, which hits theaters on July 16, 2010.

The animated series will follow Thor, the Norse god of thunder, as he defends his mythical home of Asgard against fantastical villains, fiendish hordes, winged creatures and angry giants. The show will take place in various worlds -- from mountainous landscapes to places of icy mists and fiery voids -- and will include many of the comic's supporting cast, including Balder the Brave, the Warriors Three and Thor's evil adopted brother, Loki.

Marvel president of animation Eric Rollman said the series is part of the company's plan to follow each live-action movie with an animated series and "offer a continued awareness in the marketplace." (Source: Hollywood Reporter)

Another great addition to my ever-growing Mighty Mugg collection!
