The first official image of Anthony Hopkins as Odin in Thor has been released. In the background you can also see Chris Hemsworth as Thor, for the first time holding his hammer, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki.

Marvel has also announced that both Thor and Captain America will be released in 3D. Audiences have turned on post-conversion 3D this year and the percentage of gross attributed to 3D screens has been dropping with each release. Apparently the studio recognizes that proclaiming that they will spend an unprecedented amount of time to make sure it is a great presentation and that the visuals were designed with the idea that 3D would be implemented from the start. Skepticism will remain however until a film actually delivers on the promise of post-conversion 3D being worthwhile.
