Marvel developing animated ‘Thor’ series
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel is currently developing an animated THOR series, set to launch in Fall 2010 after the live-action film opens in theaters.
The series will follow Thor, the Norse god of thunder, as he defends his mythical home of Asgard. Many of the comic’s supporting cast will make an appearance — Balder the Brave, the Warriors Three and Thor’s evil adopted brother Loki.
Eric Rollman, Marvel’s president of animation, said Marvel plans to follow each live-action movie with an animated series. Marvel is already in production on ‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,’ scheduled for release in 2011, in time for the theatrical release of ‘The First Avenger: Captain America’ and ‘The Avengers.’
