Spy shot leaks of Thor's Destroyer

Apr. 29, 2010by:

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:

 

Extra Tidbit: This and CAPAM both do seem fairly promising at the moment.

It's on a sled and being held in place by sandbags. Does it look like its in a shot right now? The set is probably about 100 feet behind the photographer.

Well...

I'm sure with some computer tinkering, it will look rightfully threatening, but for now it looks like something the Power Rangers might do battle with.

Those are sandbags to hold the statue in place. You don't want a strong wind to blow down your expensive action figure and possibly break it.

Wow, I hope this is legit. As far as Power Rangers, or whatever some folks might say, who are we to question Lee and Kirby? This kinda, um, outdates Power Rangers. Ya think?

Alright! it looks enough like John Buscema's depiction of the Destroyer from the pages of THOR back in the mid 1970's when that title was at it's best!

I see what you mean with the whole gods thing, but maybe what comic book movies need right now is some of that food old fashioned mythology. They're all so watered down for a mass audience.

Marvel will deliver!

Ever since Marvel became it's own movie studio it has made justice to it's characters whos proprties they still own and have delivered awsome films, (IRON MAN, Incredible HULK) and I have no doubt THOR and CAPT will follow in those films footsteps in delivering pure awsomeness.

Tidbit

I'm down for both Thor & Cap. I doubt Hollywood would let us down on these 2. Not like Fantastic Four...oh wait, that's right the Fantastic Four sucked as a comic book too (joking-they did have good Star Trek-esq story telling, but pretty lame otherwise).

All I can say is....bring on Dr. Strange!! THAT would be an epic movie (as long as they don't cheese it)!!
