The first trailer for Marvel's Thor lands!

The eagerly anticipated trailer for Marvel's Thor has finally landed on the net.

Kenneth Branagh's take on Marvel's Norse god is due to hit cinemas in April 2011, and this is the first proper footage (bar some set visit snippets) that has been released outside the walls of Comic-Con.

So, how does it measure up? Considering the growing concern relating to the delay of the trailer, we were getting a little antsy, but this is an impressive promo.

Chris Hemsworth looks and sounds the part as Thor, wielding the lofty dialogue as powerfully as the enchanted hammer, Mjolnir. A shirtless shot will probably help draw in the lady demographics too.

Elsewhere Anthony Hopkins gives Thor a damn good talking to, setting the plot in motion, and giving a pretty concise summary of what we can expect plotwise.

Tom Hiddleston's Loki skulks moodily in the background, but the trailer has little space for him or Natalie Portman's Jane Foster.

Branagh looks to have a decent grip on the action too, with impressive set-pieces glimpsed on Earth and Asgard.

There have been some whispers that the 3D conversion isn't up to much, but we'll have to wait until this debuts in front of TRON: Legacy to be able to judge that.
