While discussing Thor: God of Thunder with PSU at a recent SEGA press event, Liquid Entertainment's Andrew Rubino set the record straight: Thor is "not a movie game."
"We're not just playing the movie over again — that's not happening," said Rubino, combat designer on Thor: God of Thunder. "We have our storyline written by Matt Fraction. Yes, we share some elements with the movie — obviously, our Thor looks like Chris Hemsworth, we have some voice acting and likenesses — but we tried to do our own thing."
"Our goal was not to make a movie game," continued Rubino, "our goal was to make a good game."
Liquid Entertainment worked on Thor: God of Thunder over a two-year development period. Featuring a sweeping orchestral score by composer Inon Zur, Thor is an action-adventure game that follows the God of Thunder as he uses wind, thunder, and lightning powers to defeat towering foes and save Asgard.
Thor: God of Thunder is scheduled to launch in North America on May 3, 2011.

Well I'm not a gamer but as Thor's biggest fan I think this game has got me in.
I don't make that claim lightly, I've been reading Marvel Thor since the original JIM of August 1962 (followed norse mythology before that) and have all the comics.
As an Aussie science fiction writer:
I’ve written as much Thor fan fiction as any. Scroll down below my author profile to see over 40 stories:
