A new glance at some gods in Empire's Thor issue

10.04.2010

The new print issue of Empire is out, and it's all about that handsome god of thunder THOR.

We get to see a few new shots (via HeyUGuys) of Chris Hemsworth in costume, making us say Alexander Skarsgaa-who? And the curled horns of Loki make a guest appearance on set.

I'm not sure whether or not to have high hopes for this or not. I think pitching Thor as an alien rather than an actual god is a good start, though aliens don't quite fit into the IRON MAN, HULK and CAPTAIN AMERICAN universes we've seen/are seeing so far either. But then at that point you have to stop and say "oh, it's a movie, what the f*ck ever" and just enjoy it.

Check out the photos below, and look for better versions in the print issue of Empire available now.

Extra Tidbit: I'm kind of digging the costume more than I used to be. We'll see how it looks in motion.

I really, really, really, am hoping...

I don't know...I'm hoping the pictures aren't doing that costume justice but it just looks so plastic to me...I'm afraid this turns out to be an updated version of "Masters of The Universe" but I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.

I'm glad that we're getting into some of the more fantastic aspects of these films. I want The Avengers to be balls to the wall crazy, so we gotta start moving in that direction at some point

Everytime I watch Iron Man 2 and see that scene at the end of the credits I get super pumped for THOR! I cannot wait!

Now that we see lots of Thor, I'm just wondering how Loki would look like in an actual costume. I mean, bright-looking picture not just that silhouette.

Good Lord!

The man has nostrils the size of railway tunnels. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

When and where did THOR-as-alien get said?

Was it in the Empire magazine itself? If so, isn't THAT the story here, and not some rehashed pics?

Why?

Why for the love of Jack Kirby's right testicle are they making the Asgardians Aliens??? These films are based on Comic Books. It makes no sense to me why every one of them has to be "realistic". Thor has always been one of my favorite characters and to see him go from awe-inspiring GOD of Thunder to space alien is heart wrenching. Sounds like something that hack Rob Liefeld would come up with. I thought Branaugh was a huge Thor fan. We read comics and go see these films to escape the real

I may be alone in this, but to make Thor an alien is just wrong and an insult to the character and his creators.

Looks cool, but...

how is it that every Empire cover looks exactly the same? It's an amazing magazine, but not the most original when it comes to cover designs. Looks classy always, just never different.

Cool pics. The movie looks great and based off the footage I have seen, I think they have done a good job incorporating Thor into the Iron Man/The Incredible Hulk's world.

THOR THOR THOR

I'm really excited for this, I have yet to see any footage though so I'm really not sure what to expect. I'm just really curious how they're going to fit in the whole GOD stuff with people like Iron Man in the Avengers movie.

I saw that gigantic comic-con "trailer" and it looked better than what I was expecting. Here it is, if you're interested: [link] (scroll down a bit)

Geez, they really went for some HORNS on Loki's helmet. He better watch his back or a hungry lioness might take him down. I still don't know what to think about this film. Here's hoping it's a good one.
