He’s waged animated battles in "Ultimate Avengers," "Ultimate Avengers 2," "Next Avengers" and "Hulk Vs.," and now one of the most beloved characters in the Marvel Universe is ready to strike out on his own this May. See the young God of Thunder as Marvel Animation and Lionsgate Home Entertainment team up to release "Thor: Tales of Asgard"!

Hitting Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on May 17, 2011, the newest Marvel Animated Feature is the perfect companion to the May 6 release of the live-action theatrical film "Thor." The title builds on the strength of more than 40 years and 10 million copies of Thor comics, and the timelessness of the Mighty Thor to create a truly epic adventure that both lifelong fans and those new to the story will love.

Packed with special features such as audio commentaries with the film creators, a "making-of" featurette plus a bonus TV episode of "The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!" "Thor: Tales of Asgard" will come to Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD for $29.99 and $19.98, respectively.

SYNOPSIS   

Before he ever lifted his mighty hammer, there was the sword. Fantastic journeys beckon from the mysterious nine realms. Places of dark mists and fiery voids. Of winged creatures and giants in the ice. And the most alluring quest of all--the search for the legendary Lost Sword of Surtur. Hungry for adventure, Thor secretly embarks on the journey of a lifetime, joined by his loyal brother Loki, whose budding sorcery equips him with just enough magic to conjure up trouble, along with the Warriors Three--a band of boastful travelers reluctant to set sail on any adventure that might actually be dangerous. But what starts out as a harmless treasure hunt quickly turns deadly, and Thor must now prove himself worthy of the destiny he covets by saving Asgard itself.

I'm a die hard Thor fan! If this DVD is so great, why wait so long to make it available and why after the Thor movie release?

I hate DC but their animated movies are so much better it's ridiculous. At least Marvel's live action movies are way better than DC's.

How about seeing a WOLVERINE VS. like, lets say.....SABERTOOTH. HULK VS.WAS AWESOME!

liking the sound of this feel Marvel should make few more animated features, more adaptations of events perhaps as the DC ones are pretty good but Marvel could well beat them!

They'd better have him smash the heck out of the Hulk. Hulk vs. Thor was the dumbest movie of all time. Thor could crush the hulk with his pinky finger. HE IS INVINCIBLE!!!

77 minutes?? Can't they be a little longer please? 85-100 minutes and the story can be fleshed out more. Hulk VS was 78 minutes but had two stories. How about another 2 story DVD a little longer??
