We can expect an appropriately epic blitz of crazy Thor promotional material as Marvel gears up for the film's May 6 release, but none will be grander than this. Parodying the already brilliant and inescapably cute Volkswagen commercial starring a small child dressed as Darth Vader, frustrated by the fact that his Force powers are only imagined, Marvel's latest bit of hype puts a Thor kid in the same position -- but with slightly different results.


Directed by Kenneth Brannagh and starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Antony Hopkins and Idris Elba, Thor opens May 6.

And just because you can't see it too many times, here's the Darth Vader kid for Volkswagon.
