Posted Mon Feb 28, 2011 at 08:00 AM PST by

An all-new Marvel Comics direct-to-video animated movie will bring the God of Thunder down on Blu-ray this May!

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate says 'Thor: Tales of Asgard.' is coming to Blu-ray on May 17.

The title builds on the strength of more than 40 years and 10 million copies of Thor comics, and the timelessness of The Mighty Thor to create a truly epic adventure that both lifelong fans and those new to the story will love.

Specs have yet to be detailed, but the release will be a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and will include audio commentaries with the film creators, a "making-of" featurette plus a bonus TV episode of "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes."

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
