Thor Point

By now you are well aware of the upcoming Thor movie by Marvel Studios in which various Norse gods are portrayed as non-white. More specifically, Hogun is Asian and Heimdall is negro.

I recently picked up the official movie guide by Marvel Studios, entitled simply Thor (May 2011)

They actually ask for reader feedback and request, in order to ensure honesty and confidentiality, that you do not include your name, address, or phone number.

Here is the address. Tell them what you think about importing non-white diversity into the Norse pantheon!

The worst thing about the film, "Thor".

Is that a lot of people, both (young and old) won't even know, that all the Norse gods, should be white, in the first place!!

For those who have not see it you might be interested in knowing the BBC production Merlin is done with the same mix. There are black knights at the round table and Guinevere is black.
