It’s Hammer Time With These 10 ‘Thor’ Facts
Before Marvel’s Thor finally hit theaters in 2011, there were multiple attempts from directors to make a movie based on the popular comic character. Way back in 1991, Sam Raimi (who had just directed Darkman) pitched both Stan Lee and Marvel his take on the Norse god, but the studio “didn’t get it” according to the director. Probably a good thing, because if they did, we might not have the Avengers movies. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which heads to Asgard with Thor!
While we won’t formally see the Infinity Gauntlet until Avengers: Infinity War (Parts 1 & 2), if you had your eyes peeled, you may have caught a very fleeting glimpse of the gauntlet in the background of Thor. As they’re walking through Odin’s trophy room, it’s sitting in a glass case. So, how does Thanos come into possession of the glove? We’ll just have to wait and see.
