I think my favorite part of this article was that Thor would say something nerdy, and then there would be a paragraph to explain why it was funny/what it meant, and then the article would continue.
He said he never tells a lie!
He was lying about that.

An £80m blockbuster based on the Norse god is due to be released in 2010 after Kenneth Branagh agreed to direct it.

James Bond star Daniel Craig was rumoured to be taking the lead role, but no actors have so far been confirmed.


What does this have to do with anything? It's like an article on WWII having a plug for Valkyrie at the end.

Fuck, that guy's got big arms! I'd be scared too!

Though his claim that it took "ages" to make the (aluminum foil and bedsheet) costume is a bit surprising.

Well, grouchy, I must say, he umm... You know what? You're right. how could he own that big fancy expensive home, own a construction company, and not know how to craft aluminum foil?

Thanks, Thor, I learned my lesson. I will never try to steal from you again.

I would have titled the article "Burglar scared off by massive biceps", but that's just me.

My guess is that he put the costume back on for the press.

I have to agree, the reason the guy was scared off had nothing to do with the fact that our protagonist was dressed as Thor and everything to do with the fact that he's enormous.
Totally not a hypothetical...

Wait, so Thor and Zeus and Jupiter and the lot are basically like Batman?

Norse legend Thor has a magical hammer, called Mjolnir, which returns to him after knocking out his enemies foe magically returns to the superhero.
That's some great editing there.
