On May 2, 2011, Marvel Entertainment execs along with Thor were on hand at the New York Stock Exchange to ring the closing bell in celebration of the theatrical release of the Thor movie that arrives in theaters this week (May 06, 2011).

About Thor
Marvel Studios expands its film universe with a new type of super hero: Thor. This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, and produced by Kevin Feige, this epic adventure stars Australian actor Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, a young woman who befriends Thor on Earth, Tom Hiddleston as Thor’s evil brother Loki, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Thor’s father and King of Asgard.  Expect to see agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., previously seen in the Iron Man movies, foreshadowing the coming of Marvel’s The Avengers! Thor’s screenplay is by Ashley Edward Miller & Zack Stentz and Don Payne from a story by J. Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich.

    I think it would have been really cool if all the execs were holding all the different hammers from the “Fear Itself” storyline.
    Corporate Executives as the soldiers of the Fear Goddess. That could create enough humor and speculation to sustain me for days :)
