Reply Subj: Did you ever think you would see the day that Mjolnir would be the centerpiece of a mainstream movie promotion? Excelsior!

You know, when The Incredible Hulk returns came out on TV, it made many Thor fans into Nay-sayers that a thor movie would ever or could ever work. Even Stan Lee said it would be a hard thing to put together.

Yesterday, I'm walking through Target. I hear "Feel the might of my hammer!" and I see a young kid in a shopping cart holding his deluxe Thor figure and pushing the button to make him talk. I just kind of had a moment of jaw drop.

Thor has always had merchandising and such, but this is next level. I cannot imagine going into a theater and seeing Mjolnir. I will most definitely get my picture made next to it.
