Asylum Pictures Presents “Almighty Thor”

I’ve previously discussed the infamous Asylum Pictures, the production company that specializes in “mockbusters”, i.e. cheap straight-to-video knockoffs of popular Hollywood blockbusters. I already posted the trailer for Battle of Los Angeles, their none-too-subtle ripoff of Battle: Los Angeles, and since Thor is set to be one of the biggest blockbusters of this upcoming summer, it’s inevitable that we’re also going to be treated to an Asylum version entitled Almighty Thor. And, of course, Asylum has assembled themselves a nice D-list cast that includes such luminaries as Richard Grieco and former pro wrestler Kevin Nash (who previously played The Russian in The Punisher and Super Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II), and Thor himself is played by an actor named Cody Deal, whose biggest prior credits were being an extra in The Hangover and Get Him to the Greek. Like I’ve said before, Almighty Thor will probably make a profit simply through gullible customers accidentally renting it because they thought it was the Hollywood version.
