Thor's costumes said to be "straight up medieval future tech looking"

Mar. 29, 2010by:

I suppose it depends how much you want to trust "IndustryKiller," a commenter over at AICN, but his rather lengthy "why would you make this up" description of THOR’s costumes seems to be in line with scattered other reports we’ve heard about the film, and might help your fears that this movie was going to look absolutely ridiculous. Ignore the typos.

“Everyone looks absolutely perfect, right down tothe color scheme. ANd its straight up medieval future tech looking. And yes Loki has black straight hair even know Hiddleston is blonde and curly. THor is balls accurate though complete with cape, chain mail arms, the circles going down the front of the torso, and winged helmet. I’ve seen the costumes, and they did absolutely [frick]ing nail it. Very Walt Simonson.

And I think my reputation as someone very critical of most comic book films procedes me here so I’m not just some excited fanboy. The only thing that is funny about Loki’s costume is that while its gold and has the big horns sticking out, the helmet part of it, meaning the part that actually touches his head, kind of looks like a bicycle helmet, I think more so that it would, practically speaking, stay comfortable on the actor and not move around due to the horns.

The warriors three are also the same kind of medieval future tech look, a little less traditional than the comic but still very very awesome and the look of each of the actors themselves is [frick]ing dead on. Ray Stevenson looks especially cool in a chubby suit. Trust me, I think everyone here is going to be very very pleased as Branaugh just more or less adapted the comic. I was surprised at how well the looks work when translated into reality.”

Most of the time, costumes simply cannot be adapted straight from the comic without looking absolutely ridiculous, hence why we get makeovers like the X-Men’s MATRIX look. I suppose I could see Thor and his crew’s armor coming together in a pretty cool way, but it is rather hard to picture, even with this new description. Hopefully the next time this person is skulking around the set, they can snap a few pictures.

Extra Tidbit: I'm not sure who I'm more concerned about looking ridiculous, Thor or CapAm.

Beg to differ...

"Most of the time, costumes simply cannot be adapted straight from the comic without looking absolutely ridiculous"

Xmen's costumes were terrible. Watchmen, Spiderman, Superman all had fantastic looks in their respective films. Kick-Ass does, as well. It's a comic book movie. Either go full tilt and embrace it or move along.

I'm actually waiting to see Thor more than Captain America. Done the right way, his "entrance" alone could be effing epic. Thunderbolts, lightning, God-like fury....those things just never get old, and with modern tech and CGI...it's just about the right time to show what Thor's really worth on the big screen!

Very cool. I actually want the costume to look more like the books. If Spiderman and superman can have the traditional costume, so can Thor.

I'm not sure I've ever heard balls used as an adjective for anything good... This guy sounds like either a little tween or a mid 40's dad trying to be cool and hip.

Of all the comic book movie adaptions out there, this one concerns me the most because of the costumes. I hope they get it right.

As long as he's not getting drunk looking like a football player I'll be fine.

Don't wanna be an annoying fanboy -- as I know jackshit about the comics -- but I'm fucking dying to see how this film's gonna look. Admittedly, I'm half-skeptical, half-excited. But after reports like this, I'm fucking grinding my teeth with frustration. How long have they been filming? How have we NOT gotten a look at ANYTHING? Yeah, yeah, yeah... they'll surprise us, just have patience...

Bull shit, haha. Just gimme a lil som'n som'n. A lil taste.

After Iron Man, I'm naturally

After Iron Man, I'm naturally pumped for something with the ultra fast, balls-to-the-wall, unapologetic action. But with Branagh at the helm, I think there's going to be a pretty sweet sophistication to this picture, a Shakespearen epic quality to it. If done right, the combo will be nuts.

With a picture (hopefully pretty fucking soon), I think we'll get a good sense right away of tone and character. Cross fingers.

Sounds promising, but... a bicycle helmet? That part made me cringe.

The Matrix look of the X-Men was pretty ridiculous as well. Especially when you knew where it was coming from.
