Spy shot leaks of Thor's Destroyer
If you truly wish to know nothing about the plot of THOR, turn back now, but if you want to see a pretty cool costume from the film for a character we didn’t know was in it, look down.
What you see below in a spy shot from Latino Review is the Destroyer, a nemesis of Thor whose origin I’ll have someone else explain:
The Destroyer is an enchanted suit of armor forged by Odin, and when it first appeared it was hinted that the Destroyer had been created as a weapon to face some dark menace from the stars. It is first seen residing in the Temple of darkness in Asia. The Destroyer is used by Thor’s arch-foe Loki on several occasions, and each time has actually come close to killing Thor.
It looks pretty badass to me, even from far away, but I have to say it doesn’t look terribly mobile. Maybe once it’s in action, the thing will be CGI. It also speaks to the fact that THOR appears to be really trying to interpret the comic literally with its costuming, as the thing is practically identical to its comic book rendering as you can see.
Now, someone snap a shot of Hemsworth in the winged helmet!
UPDATE: The studio made us take it down. Lame. It looked like this, but real:
