I like comic book movies, that’s not exactly earth shattering news of course. But what is different about some of us here at Krypton Radio, is I don’t get to post reviews and such as often as I want. No, the others aren’t holding me at bay with a rabid gopher, despite what rumors may suggest to the contrary. My secret identity keeps me way busier than I want, and when I get home my mailbox is stuffed full of Chinese take-away menus and messages to call the office to make sure I’m still alive. So it may at times seem like I’m a little late to the party when it comes to pumping out the reviews and other related content; so how does that tie into Marvel’s hit movie Thor? Well, the good old movie and TV show on demand site Netflix, is also feeling a bit sheepish when they show up with a bottle of bubbly and the only one there is the janitor cleaning up, when it comes to cutting edge movie releases.
Netflix has finally announced a major addition to its somewhat stale superhero lineup, Marvel’s Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth as the super-powered hammer wielding god of lightning, has finally joined the online service as of June 9th. Netflix who has suffered greatly due to what appears to be Hollywood’s disdain for the budget priced entertainment distributor, and has had severe trouble getting via contracts the rights to distribute the major hits online. Searching the service, you’ll find hardly any superhero movies. So when I came up for air recently, I was surprised to see the notice that Thor had been added.
