Another photo from Thor shows the bond between Father and Son

07.15.2010

When it comes to THOR, I'm honestly not worried.

This is primarily due to one reason: Kenneth Branagh.

Is it stupid to fall back on a director hoping that maybe this will be a great film? No. I love the comic film world and in some aspects, at times, have high hopes that might seem naive. It just stems from the fact that you have a certain idea of what you want a character to be like, especially if you spend a lot of time reading the comics. In the end, the possibilities seem to be endless. End rant.

Anywho, a new picture from THOR has been found. I would guess perhaps it came from the new Entertainment Weekly, but /Film says that it looks like it comes out of a Comic-Con publication. Maybe a sneak peek. Odin isn't grinning as much here, looks as though he might be giving the son a pep talk.

Check it out below.

Extra Tidbit: Yes, I did drink the Branagh punch. Wow. That sounds terribly, terribly wrong.

This pic looks MUCH better.

The first one has three problems. The first is the bright lighting. It does make the costumes look a bit silly. The second is the shit eating grin that Odin is sporting, it looks silly and doesn't fit. The third is introducing Loki this way. He should have gotten a bigger reveal. The bottom pic looks great, Odin looks a thousand times more badass in that lighting as does Thor (although he looks good in all the pics, I think.)

Ridiculous

I agree with the skeptics here. Usually I'm as hopeful as any fan/nerd over a comic book movie adaptation, but you have to be rational here...It looks silly. And it's probably the photos; the film will adjust the look. The Matrix had absolutely awful costumes out of context from the movie. These pictures aren't doing the trick.

This is definitely a better-looking picture than the one with all three of em. At this point, though, it's not looking like Branagh is gonna make much of a positive impact on this particular film. Wonder who did set, costume, and makeup design?

I think the exaggerated costumes will work well with the contrast of the real world that Thor will be forced into. Part of the appeal of the character is that he's a fish out of water. In Asgard, he's got what they would consider wicked crazy god armor and in NYC he looks a little goofy...until he gets pissed and fries everybody.

so you're basically saying it's gonna be like Kate and Leopold with a cheesy plastic hammer firing laser rays out of it?

Even mentioning 'Kate and Leopold' negates your entire opinion.

The costumes do look a little better in that lighting, but it still looks like more thought went into the action figures they could sell by making them look like that.

I'm getting flashbacks of this: [link]

Gotta agree with a lot of comments here. Thor looking ok, but why does Odin look like a transformer with a stupid grin? Anthony Hopkins Odin should look regal and distinguished.

Final judgement will be reserved for the trailer, but I still think it looks bad, hate the way the capes are attached, it looks costumey!

A God in Iron Man's World?

I'm sorry, I cannot seem to take these photos very seriously. Anthony Hopkins looks like a walking joke, and while Thor looks decent and passable, Loki and Odin look like they're doing a cheap-ass stage play. It reminds me of a time when I used to watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I had a lot of optimism for Thor, but looking at these costumes and the way this movie completely detaches itself from Iron Man's world with its Asgard realms and extremely mythical God-mortal plot, I'm beginning to

I'm still not sold. The tone of the pictures just looks off to me. Like 90's superhero fare, possibly even 90's TV. But I'm keeping some faith.

As already said; now in this second picture the set lightening makes the costumes look great, also this darker tone is probably representative for the whole movie and that tone most definitely suits this superhero. After all; darkness, thunder and lightening is his thing.

Also, I like the fact that Odin seem to be 7 feet tall.

High confidence in Branagh.

Pic is good, but I'm still excited over all of the Green Lantern buzz.

Not really getting all of the Kenneth Branaugh love, he doesn't exactly have the best track record, plus one of the writer's was responsible for "My Super Exgirlfriend". I'm not writing the movie off, it could still deliver, but this and Captain America have some huge question marks over them.

On Niki's comment...

I would not say it's stupid at all to "fall back on a director hoping that maybe this will be a great film." Stupid's too harsh, because anyone gets pumped when good people get together for an exciting project.

However, you're obviously at more risk of being let down if and when the project doesn't pan out as you'd hoped. It's almost impossible, especially for film's like these with so much at stake (audience expectation, I mean), but going in with an open mind is the best bet. It's lame

Reading up on movie news is almost compulsive for me, haha. Reviews and pics and previews... I wish I didn't look at them (though I'd be missing out on great discussions with fellow MCFers).

It's the proverbial "cake and eat it, too." If only Lacuna, Inc. existed, and we could get our memory erased pre-screening...

SEE!

I've been telling people how the correct lighting and treatment on film would make these costumes look great, now we see that here. Oh, and Hemsworth already stated that Thor will wear a helmet, as will Loki, so rest easy.

Wow, less lighting . . .

. . . makes a big difference. This new pic looks less Krull or Flash Gordon-like.

This looks much better.

The other pic really didn't do the movie much justice. I love that this pic is much darker and I can see the tone of the movie much better now witch makes me more optimistic now. Hope he wears his helmet or at least earns it by the end of the movie, also hope to see the frost giants as some enemies. Thor had better be bloodying and electrifying his villains at the same time. Summer of 2011 is jam packed and I can't wait.

Does anyone know if Thor will be wearing the enchanted Belt of Strength? The item doubles Thor's strength and endurance. Also, will Thor use his chariot drawn by two huge mystical goats called Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder in the film? Finaly, will we ever see a picture of Thor wearing his white battle helmet?
