Hulk VS Thor
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Takuji Endo and Sam Liu
Screenplay Christopher Yost
Starring Matthew Wolf, Graham McTavish, Kari Wahlgren, Bryce Johnson,
Grey DeLisle

As much as we love our heroes, there is one question that anyone who has ever picked up a comic book encounters: “Who would win in a fight…?” In Hulk Vs Thor, we get to see that fantasy scenario played out in an epic battle for Asgard.

Year after year, Asgard is watched over by Odin, the All Father. For one week each winter Odin must rest, leaving Asgard vulnerable to attack. Many may try to claim Asgard, but their attempts are always thwarted by Thor (Matthew Wolf) and the other Asgardian warriors. With hopes of defeating Thor, Loki (Graham McTavish) has kidnapped Dr. Bruce Banner (Bryce Johnson) in order to take control of the Hulk, the only power to ever equal the God of Thunder’s. What follows is a mystical tale of bravery and loyalty, accented with all the fist-pounding, hammer-swinging action you would expect from the two titans of the Marvel universe.

The animated short’s title may start with the Hulk’s name, but the story is mainly focused on Thor and his surrounding mythology. Filled with the right amount of action and eye candy to satiate the casual fan, the short also boasts a compelling story that delves into Thor’s history. The fight rages through the bright beauty of Asgard, as well as the dark, dismal underworld, Hel. We learn of a betrayal catalyzing love triangle involving Thor, his love Sif (Grey DeLisle), and the scorned Amora (Kari Wahlgren).

The animation is a treat to behold. The fight sequences resonate with the intensity that one would expect from our heroes. I found the vocal characterizations to be spot on, particularly Wolf’s Thor. His performance epitomizes the power and strength required for Thor, never wavering or holding back. Also of note is Guy Michelmore’s epic score, which complements the action sequences as well as the exposition.

Also included on the Blu Ray is another violent clash of classic heroes, the fast-paced story Hulk Vs Wolverine. This short features as much action as Hulk Vs Thor, as well as a cast of many Marvel mainstays including Deadpool, Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike, and Omega Red.

As the theatrical release of Thor approaches, fans looking to build their excitement should start with Hulk Vs Thor. Above all, its a fun piece of animation that shows just how awe-inspiring the God of Thunder can be.
