Excited about The Avengers? Afraid it’s going to be crap? Don’t care, but love superheroes? Look no further than Marvel Month, where Alcohollywood reviews and creates drinking games for the five superhero movies of the characters soon to join forces in The Avengers!
Just in time for Thor’s Day, Marvel Month continues as we take the Bifrost to Asgard and drink to Thor, Kenneth Branagh’s superhero movie about the Norse god-turned-regular-guy-turned-god-again! Along with his friends Natalie Portman and the Ren Faire Gang (NOTE: the movie beats us to this joke), the meathead Thor tackles sheet-metal robots, treacherous Frost Giants and the deadly quips of an unwelcome Kat Dennings. Luckily, we’ve got some mead and a drinking game to get you through this latest Avengers tie-in – give us a listen and check out our rules!

THIS EPISODE’S DRINK: Thor’s Mighty Hammered
1 pint Viking Blod mead
1 part bourbon
1 part Chambord
splash balsamic vinegar
Pour or drop shot into mead; toast to your fallen comrades.
DRINKING RULES FOR THOR:
- Dutch angles (i.e. the camera is at a jaunty angle for no reason)
- Guttural/nonsensical growls and grunts (e.g. Thor, Odin)
- Every time Kat Dennings delivers an awful, sitcom-y quip
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
Loki (Tom Hiddleston), set to ruin whatever nuance he set up over the course of the movie, sneers “Is it madness….is it?!… IS IT?!”
Check us out next week as we finish up Marvel Month with the Joe Johnston period piece Captain America: The First Avenger, where he cashes in his Rocketeer points to give us the final superhero showdown before The Avengers comes out on May 4. See you then!

Fun Fact: Thor was actually Branagh’s favorite superhero growing up. I like to think that Thor’s Shakespeare-speak was his gateway into getting into the Bard.
