Yesterday it was Captain America, now take a look at Thor!

Jun. 3, 2010by:

The first images of CAPTAIN AMERICA's costume leaked online yesterday and now today, we have a similar look at THOR. While we've already seen Chris Hemsworth in costume, it wasn't a particularly good look at what he was wearing. And we also didn't get a good look at Mjolner, which we can see now in all it's glowing blue glory.

Don't pay too much attention to the Photoshopped head of Chris Hemsworth - it's not so much here about how Hemsworth looks in the costume as it is about the costume itself. It's fairly faithful to the costume from the comics, though with an updated look. It's interesting that we can clearly see the blue in the chestplate in this art but in the original photo, it almost seemed gray. Not sure if that changed or it was just the lighting in the production still.

Collider has the exclusive look at the two shots so head over here to check them out in hi-res. What do you think? I'm not blown away by Mjolner but this is just a drawing. I'm sure it'll look much cooler in action with all the benefits of CGI.

Extra Tidbit: I have a feeling this isn't the last of the costume art that will be leaking online...

Just looks silly. Still can't wrap my head around how they're going to realistically tie this into the films. Eh.

Lame

There is a problem. I can not believe that this guy is the son of a God. He is just not muscular enough, LOOK at his legs for all sakes, I could trip him with a tree branch!

Recent Thor Concepts Don't Do 'Actual Costume' Justice


Copy and paste from CBM.com

"
Well now Drew McWeeny from HitFix's Motion Captured Blog, has spoken out on how close those costume concepts are to the costume in film, saying "While what you're seeing in the Collider images is indeed the design for the costume, there are several details about it that are ill-served by those images."

McWeeny continues, "I've been to the set for that film, and I've seen Hemsworth in final costume tests, and I've seen the overall aesthetic for Asgard."

McWeeny continues, "I've been to the set for that film, and I've seen Hemsworth in final costume tests, and I've seen the overall aesthetic for Asgard."

On the concept/actual costume comparison, "For one thing, it does not appear to be made of vinyl or plastic when you see the costume in context and in motion. I'm surprised by how disco-shiny those photos make him look, because that's not at all what it looks like in the film. There's a real cloth and metal feel to all of the costuming, especially the Asgardian stuff.

That early official shot of Hemsworth did a nice job of setting a mood, and that's something these leaked images lack completely. If you're looking at these and thinking, "Oh, man, they got him totally wrong," relax. The world of "Thor" is big and rich and surprising, and I think once people actually see moving footage, they're going to let go of any minor issues they have with button sizes or color palettes.

On the concept of Thor's enchanted hammer, Mjolnir, McWeeny says, "they make Mjolnir look fairly dinky. I've held that hammer. That thing is heavy as hell, and the real trick of what Hemsworth's got to do in the role is make it look not just menacing, but imposing as well.

I kinda hope the cg bulk him up some. He seems too puny for Thor. Maybe they should have gotten a wrestler for the role or at least go with CG like they did with the Hulk.

Meh

He's not Thor without the Winged Helmet. The cape and from the waist up is fine but the boring "X-Men" black leather pants and boots are terrible. Where is the armor on his legs? I am afraid with this look they are going to make the Asguardians aliens with advanced technology. The Norsemen probably believed the aliens to be gods or something which is where their religion came from. Arghaghagahgag... Please Brannagh dont make Thor an alien... I beg you.

"fantabularifical" now with deepfried chocolate covered bacon served with butter dippin sauce, beer and wet sloppy BJ's from Jessica Alba on christmas mourning while smokin a doob on the toilet and watching the Blu ray of The Dark Knight on your 60" LCD HDTV with 1080p mounted on your bathroom wall while wearing only a pair of black sock's and a Detroit Lions helmet, How's that?

Jeez louise, does EVERY hero have to be Batman? I mean, sure, we all want verisimilitude, but grim n' gritty is SOOOOO 90's. Lighten up, ya poozers. Or did you forget why you started reading comics in the first place? (Or am I just that old?)

Im not an expert on Thor but that Hammer is really bugging me. It seems WAAAAAY too small. When I think of the Hammer of Thor I think of some big hard hitting weapon that can do some damage. That thing looks like he's about to hang up some pictures and needs to hammer them in.

Lame on BOTH counts

I think a THOR movie is terribly bland. I would never pay 20 bucks (trust me, it'll be that much next year) to watch 2 hours of blandness. This is marvels Aquaman! The outfit looks ridiculous as does the movie itself. They should've just introduced Thor in the Avengers movie, not his own movie.

This has potential

I`m a fan of the ultimate version of thor and i do hope it looks somewhat like this but it does need more grit and dirt. I`m sure it will look godly (pun intended ) when it`s all done and hit with the movie magic Hollywood is so damn good at but i have to take a wait and see approach until we get a trailer

I'm sorry, I know almost nothing of Thor so maybe I'm not the best person to commenting here but that looks ridiculous. That is the goofiest looking superhero I've ever seen.

To each his own, so if you're into this, totally cool. But this movie looks awful until I see an official trailer.

plastic and rubber?

We've been told this will have an "epic" feel and while I'm not expecting historically accurate norseman gear, I would at least like to think that things will look like they're made of leather and metal... not rubber and plastic.

It looks more like the Haloween costume of what his real costume should look like.

Still would have preferred the costume sans the cape. Cape makes it look a lil' risky...like it could turn very cheesy, very fast. No cape, and he looks like one badass superhero.

On a second look...

Here is how I think it will look like in the movie [link]
I did not like the design upon my first look. It looked too much like a powerranger costume. After tweaking it through photoshop I notice that this is what it will eventually look like in the movie. These photos where probably made with allot of bright colors, so that it shows all the kinds of materials that must be used to make the costume. The real movie will be shot with allot of shadow. Also I understand the need to modernize his

Relax, folks...

From what it appears, this is not only early concept art, but its clearly bad photoshop affects that make this thing look shitty. This is a rough idea of what the costume and Chris will look like, but I'm sure the live action version, like the first leaked pic, will look much cooler. Remember, they told us he WILL have the helmet.

The studio really needs to be careful here. I know these are supposed to be "leaked" photos, but honestly, we all know leaked photos are a hype tactic. The problem is these leaked photos are looking a little weak. I love the Thor costume design, and with the right lighting and feel, it will probably look awesome. But these photoshopped, brightly-lit concept images are teetering on the edge of silly-looking. Only fanboys really dig stuff like this.

Thor needs to look much more like the comics. In this shot, he almost looks like he's wearing an ordinary business suit. Where's the helmet?! Where's the blue and yellow?Capt. America looks good! Has a nice mixture of old school and modern day. Maybe when he comes into present day, they'll ditch the helmet for the more recognizable mask.

Just to let you know duder, it's a mix between the classic armour and this armour:

So you can see how the bright yellow disappeared the process.

I think the glossy sort of look is just that it's concept art. My problem was similar with CA, and that's that each set lacks the gritty dirt and wear of fighting. These pictures are of suits hot from the dry cleaners, not post-rough-and-tumble brawl. That's perfectly fine. However, I'd love to see some talented Photoshoppers take these and beat 'em up a bit.

Looking past the inherent over-polish, I think they're cool. I said out loud yesterday to my brother that I hoped the Thor crew

Honestly, I might just mock up an Avengers Poster right now myself as I'm that over the moon (and sad)

Shame there's no helmet, but it honestly still looks good and it is understandable.

It might just be because of the studio setting, but it looks to me a LOT like something you'd get off the store shelf in October at Hot Topics. However, it might turn out alright if/when it's filmed right, with better lighting and shit.
