Exclusive: New Images of Chris Hemsworth as THOR

by     Posted 3 years, 322 days ago

Collider reader “Dan” has sent us some concept art of Chris Hemsworth as Thor.  Earlier today, we ran a story about AICN landing concept art of Chris Evans in his Captain America outfit.  While we were very circumspect about saying these images were official, it is telling that both of these images have leaked today and they have the same artistic style.  You can also see how they compare to the official shot Marvel released in April.

What’s especially cool about these Thor images is it’s the first shot we’ve seen of the Norse god wielding his hammer, Mjolner.  It’s cool that not only does the top of the hammer glow, but you’ll notice that the grip also emanates blue light.  It’s also interesting to see the size of Mjolner in proportion to Thor’s body.  Of course, it’s not the size of the hammer, but how you use it.  How it’s used in Thor is probably leveling buildings and fighting Norse gods.

Hit the jump to stop with the less-than-clever innuendo and check out the concept art.  Thor hits theaters on May 6, 2011.

For those who don’t know, Thor is being directed by Kenneth Branagh (Hamlet).  The film also stars Natalie Portman as love-interest Jane Foster, Anthony Hopkins as Thor’s papa, Odin, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the film’s villain.  The film also stars Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone), Tadanobu Asano (Mongol), and Joshua Dallas (The Descent: Part 2) as the Warriors Three; Idris Elba (The Wire) as Heimdall, Stellan Skarsgard (Angels & Demons) as Selvig, and Jaimie Alexander (Kyle XY) as Sif.

    I'm not really feeling the cape, at all!

    • Mordor

      it’s ridiculous ! The cape , the shinning hammer and the fancy hair ?!!!

      • L00fah

        Do you even know who Thor is..?

      • Ljilc45

        i guess they don,t another crappy movie about thor

      They cant lose the cape. He already looks young. Without the cape, he’ll really look like Thunderstrike.

  • Anthony_Galindo

    That last picture looks like Will Ferrel.

    • Dave999

      I’m thinking more like the late Heath Ledger. Will is a bit, well, doughy.

    Not to be a total buzz kill but, Captain America & Thor are better left in the realm of animation & print. Otherwise, they'll just look foolish as 'live action' superheroes.
    Besides, having the Incredible Hulk as THE main nemesis in the much touted 2012 “Avengers” film is quite frankly s-t-u-p-i-d. Hulk is not a villain. Stick to the storyline in the Ultimate Avengers. It would make for a much more interesting film imo.

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/RE2CSNISURTU7UVZGGENUZFVWY gary r

      I think your right about Thor. At least lose the cape. But Cap. Would be fun to see on film. Spidy was awsome. So cap will be cool, it’s that Tror I’m trippin off of. And Hulk is a bad guy if you think of the life he takes and how the gov. might look at it. He needs to be stopped. Looking at it from Banner’s eye’s he is a good guy. But not in the eye’s of the public.

      • Mandarin

        What do you mean loose the cape? don’t you reap comics? They are doing 616 Thor not ultimate Thor they have to keep the cap unless they wanna change him completely and make him a guy who finds a belt.

      If you read the Ultimates, the Hulk WAS the villain for a good portion. And I can’t imagine Cap or Thor looking sillier in live action than Spider-man. Or the Hulk for that matter.

    • TITI3160

      YES YOUR RIGHT HE IS NOT A VILLAIN BUT HE DOES GET OUT OF CONTROL AND THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO CAN STOP HIM ARE THE AVENGERS. READ COMIC THE ULTIMATES(SUPER-HUMAN) THE HULK DESTROYS MANHATTAN MAKING THE AVENGERS FIGHT HIM.

      • Dart

        Yeah, but if you look at the Hulk Movie there using, which is different from the comics, then it seems that banner has some control over the Hulk, and he doesen’t seem like much of a villain anymore.

      ok the hulk has been a bad guy several times…… he gets pissed and wants to hit shit…. pure and simple. which means the avengers have to stop him. go read the comics.

      you gotta remember dude that The Hulk was only in the Avengers for a issue and a half an it’s Thor half brother Loki that tricks them into thinking he was the villain. See you are one of those I started reading comics when they got fancy dudes The Ultimate Avengers is not how the Avengers story was told that’s some crap a bunch of young guys took poetic licensing with.

  • DylanSnyder

    Aren't they going with the original Avengers arc where Loki tricks Hulk, which is what ends up making him the villain?

    From what I hear, Hulk starts as the villain, but by the end they take down Loki, or something to that effect. I could very easily be wrong, however.

    • Desiredimages70

      you are very right

    • Desiredimages70

      you are very right

    • hatuall

      Hulk is an unstopable force of rage and hatred, in the comics the avengers where assembled for the sole purpose of defeating the Hulk cause alone Thor, Iron Man, and Captin America all got there butts handed to them. Personally I like the costumes and would like to see the Hulk beating up on all three of them for the first part of the movie and then through appropriatly executed circumstances eventually teaming up with them to defeat the final villian.

      • Wrlord2001

        Captain America wasn;t even with the Avengers at the time. He was on ice.

  • Kenny38606

    I don't know what Marvel Comics you've been reading, but the Hulk has been cast in the antagonist role more times than I can count.Hell, the Avengers first assembled to fight him because he was being manipulated by Loki.So Hulk being the initial villain isn't so far fetched.

    I think these might actually be marketing stills… the kind of character shots you usually see on boxes of Fruit Roll Ups or Skittles or whatever.

  • Will

    actually, this makes me optimistic for captain america more than anything else. I know the feel of the Thor costume from the actual pic, and feel its a big improvement. if that same jump applies to thor, then were in business.

    • http://twitter.com/bspanis Brandon Spanis

      My thoughts exactly.

  • JG

    Based on these pics, I think the villains in Thor should be Ziegfreid and Roy.

    Is that a pride float I see on the Rainbow Bridge?

    I'm really liking this concept art. Love Thor's look, glad there isn't a helmet. Still not liking Mjolner, but I'm not exactly the target demographic on that any way. Good deal Marvel.

    • http://www.twitter.com/emmapants42 Emmapants

      Mjolner just looks a little small to me, don’t you think? Hopefully that’s just a flaw of the concept art.

      • Anonymous

        It does look a tad small. More like what a regular man would wield, not a god. One thing I liked about the Ultimate Version is how large Mjolner looked and it’s shape. This seems to retain the shape of the original universe, but still looks a bit small, yes.

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/GOZK6NCA2DG5ZPQDWWWBIQNQZY Jason

      Why does it look so rubbery? Why so “modern” looking? I norse god of Thunder does not wear rubber-chainmail and combat boots. Look at his bracers? They look like rejects from the set of some sci-fi movie. And look all, the discs on his jacket (supposed to be a tunic) glow too. Is this a freaking Tron character? Look, why does this movie have to interpet Thor’s current costume instead of using the exact thing?

      • Pickletron

        The Asgardians in the comics are an alien race. They might have some different looking armor than you may think.

        I honestly can’t understand how some people will totally buy the concept of an alien god coming to earth and teaming up with a man in a robot suit and a WW2 vet who has been frozen in ice for 60 years to fight a monster made of Edward Norton and radiation, but who just draw the line at “rubbery” armor.

        to add to Pickletron, this concept art matches fairly nicely to what was shown in the comics, not exactly but similar. Also this is concept.

    Me too and I'm open on Mjolner – I'd rather wait and see it with realistic VFX rather than a single concept artistry type still, assuming these are legit of course.

      Mjolnir (correct spelling) was supposed to be the size and shape of a smith’s hammer in the original Norse myths; as Thor was the god of Thunder; the noise of the thunder and the lightning being results of him forging the clouds, the rain being the result of him tempering them. So me me the size is just right; Mjolnir was never supposed to be a battle hammer sized weapon but a smith’s hammer which could be used as a weapon

  • Nunegro

    Agreed. These images do have me more interested in seeing the overall look of the Universe in this film. To be optimistic, Thor looks like he will fit in visually with the rest of the Avengers nicely.
