“Thor” video game nabs Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston for voices

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The “Thor” publicity machine is starting to build steam ahead of the May release of Marvel’s superhero blockbuster.

We’ve already seen the film’s first trailer. Check it out here, if you haven’t seen it yet.

The next natural step is the official video-game, which no doubt will be timed to hit streets when the film opens.

SEGA announced today that “Thor” stars Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston will star in the video game adaptation “Thor: God of Thunder.” Hemsworth voices the title role and Hiddleston will voice Loki. Both actors’ likenesses will also be used in the game.

“Bringing in Chris and Tom to star in ‘Thor: God of Thunder’ gives us AAA talent that will create a truly cinematic interactive experience,” said Gary Knight, senior vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. “Mighty Thor and the trickster Loki will face off with real emotion while giving fans visual and vocal continuity between the video game and film adaptations of the Marvel franchise.”

From the release:

Thor: God of Thunder will take players through an original, epic-scale third-person action adventure for which Matt Fraction, the Eisner Award-winning writer and lead Thor comic book author, served as story consultant. In the game, Thor battles through the numerous worlds of Norse mythology to save Asgard. Players will wield the iconic Mjölnir, Thor’s legendary hammer, to fight enemies of an immense scale while controlling the elemental storm powers of lightning, thunder and wind to vanquish enemies. Thor must overcome monstrous foes lifted from the pages of the comics, including Ulik, Ymir and Surtur, as well as other daunting enemies.

“Thor: God of Thunder” is scheduled for release spring 2011 on all major video game platforms.
