Thor is being directed by Kenneth Branagh (Hamlet). The film also stars Natalie Portman as love-interest Jane Foster, Anthony Hopkins as Thor’s papa, Odin, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the film’s villain. The film also stars Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone), Tadanobu Asano (Mongol), and Joshua Dallas (The Descent: Part 2) as the Warriors Three; Idris Elba [Stringer Bell] as Heimdall, Stellan Skarsgard (Angels & Demons) as Selvig, and Jaimie Alexander (Kyle XY) as Sif.

Not too many surprises with this one. How come all superheroes wear boots? Wouldn’t they seem faster if they were wearing some sweet Air Jordans or something? Maybe they’re saving those for Idris Elba, the Norse God of Urban Flavor. He carries a smaller hammer because he’s not compensating.
Higher res versions available at Collider. Meanwhile, I’ve got some test footage of Thor and some of the other Norse Gods below.
I don’t remember them being so musical in the comics. It’s nice that they sang a song for that lady in the magazine.
