As the Thor movie draws closer, the ties to the movie will go stronger.  Point – Marvel has announced a series of Hollywood variants featuring the God of Thunder in some very recognizable roles.

“Fans couldn’t be more excited to finally see Thor hit the big screen and we feel the exact same way,” said Senior Vice President of Sales David Gabriel. “Having Thor pay homage to some of film’s most memorable onscreen moments is just one of the ways that Marvel hopes to broaden Thor’s appeal across all areas of popular culture.”

    I love Marvel and I hope the movies do good. But these variants they do for movies- on many books that have nothing to do with the movie in question- annoy the hell out of me
