Marvel Reveals International ‘Thor’ Release Dates

Thor International Release Dates

Thinking about lining up on May 6th to be one of the first fans in the world to see Thor and Loki battle it out on the big-screen? You might be surprised, and possibly disappointed, to know that over 40 countries will get to see the film before moviegoers in the United States.

According to the official International release schedule for the film Thor will open internationally on April 27th in Belgium, Egypt, and France, with many other countries following shortly after.

Marvel is known for planning ahead. It’s not the first time that Marvel has opened one of their tent-pole pictures to the international crowd before film-goers in the U.S. – as Iron Man 2 followed a similar release schedule. Director Jon Favreau’s heavy-metal follow-up opened on May 7th in the U.S. – with international audiences getting a look at the film starting on April 28th.

Check out the full list of international release dates – to see when Thor is opening in your country. You can also check the official Thor international release site for links to coverage of the film – specific to your region:

While some Thor fans might be disappointed that they’ll have to fly to another country to be among the first moviegoers to see Kenneth Branagh’s Marvel superhero installment, the international Thor release will pale in comparison to the irony of the impending Captain America: The First Avenger release schedule.

Personally, I don’t see any problem with Hollywood productions opening in other countries before they hit theaters in the U.S. but I can imagine some die-hard Cap fans won’t be able to resist getting worked up if the titular American hero screens in foreign theaters first.

Thor, as we all know, is actually Scandinavian after-all.
