Today’s Marvel movie superheroes tend to look a bit drab and dull so what better way to glam them up by photoshopping their outfits with pink Hello Kitty branding.
This is in fact real and not some tacky marketing ploy by a Hollywood studio to promote a sequel to a particular super hero movie. Whisky manufacturer Highland Park has produced this exquisite looking bottle with Viking long-ship themed presentation case to launch their Valhalla Collection, apparently another three Nordic God themed whiskies are to follow in the next three years.
In the mean time Thor is a 16 year-old single malt and has an ABV, (Alcohol By Volume) of 52.1%. According to Highland Park’s official website Thor Whisky has the following tasting notes:
Thor’s high strength grabs the palate and refuses to let go. Initially dry, with fiery gingerbread then vanilla, blackberries, fresh mango, peach and hints of cinnamon. As its big flavours swirl around the mouth, some softer, sweeter notes develop, giving Thor and unexpected layer of complexity and depth. The finish thunders on, leaving behind lingering notes of sweet vanilla and an intense spiciness.

The first official trailer for the superhero nerd-fest The Avengers was released yesterday and as party bag after party bag of Doritos were dropped in basement floors the orgasmic moans of millions of overweight, single men were heard across the globe.
The Avengers is the movie Marvel Studios has been working towards for some time now, giving each superhero in their franchise their own respective outing before joing them together in one massive spandex orgy. Directed by Joss Whedon, (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse, Firefly), it stars Robert Downey Jr, (Ironman), Chris Evans, (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth, (Thor), Tom Hiddleston, (Loki), who appears to be the villian, Samuel Jackson, (Nick Fury), Mark Ruffalo, (The Incredible Hulk), Scarlett Johansson, (Black Widow) and Jeremy Renner, (Hawkeye).
The Plot couldn’t be any simpler, earth is threatened by an alien force, Nick Fury pulls together a team of superheros to save the planet, (not quite sure where Johansson and Renner’s characters fit in here, one can do martial arts in a catsuit and the other can fire arrows really well?). We will say this the only two things that can save this movie from turning into an enormous over-bloated cheese puff are Joss Whedon’s direction and Robert Downey Jnr’s charisma.
The Avengers is released in May of next year.
There are many questions which we would love the answers to regarding the amazing trailer for Asylum Pictures, (straight to SyFy channel), film Almighty Thor, which you can watch and drool over above.
For example why is Thor wielding an Uzi? Why doesn’t Marvel’s Thor wield an Uzi? Who had the foresight to cast WWE’s Kevin Nash in this movie? But probably the single most important question of all would be; what in the name of all the Greek Gods has happened to Richard, 21 Jump Street, Grieco’s coupon?
