Chris Hemsworth in Marvel's Thor

The biggest news of yesterday was the reveal of some early concept art images of Chris Evans in costume as Captain America. Although we've already seen a first look photo of Thor, our friends at Collider were sent a few mysteriously similar looking concept art costume images of a long-haired Chris Hemsworth as the Norse god of thunder in Marvel's Thor. We finally get to see Thor holding the legendary hammer Mjolnir and posing like a true badass, but these seem like heavily Photoshopped images, which is why I don't really enjoy posting them, but they're for your pleasure. Anyway, just know these are very early mock-ups. Enjoy!

Chris Hemsworth as Thor

This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe - from present day Earth to the mythical realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth. Paramount has set a May 6th, 2011 summer release for Thor. I can't wait to see more! Which of these do you think looks better - Cap or Thor?

    The clean-cut rubbery look feels too late eighties - mid nineties. Like the Burton costume, TV Flash, MAtrix, X-Men, etc. Not liking it.
  • Josef
    Eh... not the worse costume i've ever seen... it'll do for now.
  • AJ
    @ Josef .....agree
  • Daniel Felts
    I'm hoping they're gonna change it. some cool armour.
  • Tom Cruise
    looks like this artist ( is he the same one from Capt? ) doesn't have a thing for wings-on-the-head heroes, then again this IS ultimate uni right, for some reason the one of the left looks like a photo to me O.O
  • DoomCanoe
    hhahaa the one to the right looks like Ron Burgundy trying to play Fabio
  • The 13th Wang
    Looks gay. I was expecting something more grand and darker. More majestic perhaps. After all, he is a God. Bare in mind that it is "early" concept art. So no doub it will evolve (hopefully).
  • Brad Clooney
    Who the hell is Chris Hemsworth?
  • Brad Clooney
    Needs way cooler armor. Just not loving it. Looks too bland and uninspiring.
  • jojoe
    pix for the game huh?
  • Manuel
    Looks preety cool. Like Count Marzo in the MOTUC series!
  • Iggypop
    does Chris really look the part? I mean he was okay in Star Trek but here i'm quite not solve. and this early concept does not come close to Ryan Reynolds' early rendition of GL... you should see it!!! but then again everything is in development..
  • Ron
    Looks too...'clean'. But not in the literal sense. Do you see someone wearing that armour and going to battle??! He looks more like a magician/sorcerer than a warrior! Kinda reminds me of the Magneto costume. Yes I know these are early concept pictures and I am hoping they fixed it eventually.
  • nelson
    thank god his legs are not steel like his arms it would of looked bad like that
  • ryderup
    should have been more majestic, real armour-alike and torn... me thinks...
  • Zack
    I prefer the old mythological look of THOR from the comic books. I don't know how they are going to pull this off: the whole THOR story has ancient Nordic feel to it, and to transplant that to modern setting (AVENGERS story) with modern characters like IRON MAN without looking ridiculous is a monumental task to say the least.
  • Jimmy Love
    Theres a reason they look Photoshoped They are digital art not photos
  • Fat Baby
    I'm with #6, Hemsworth reminds me of Will Ferrell a little too much. "Stay classy asgard!"
  • Trey M
  • JP
    I hate to be the one to say this, but Thor is like HUGE. And this guy isn't.
  • Voice of Reason
    This is more like what you'd see in a costume catalog next Halloween. Lame.
  • Ragweed
    I'm down. They're really nice concepts. Can't wait to see the finished design/costume.
  • Looks like he's wearing a tuxedo from outer space.
  • Movieraider321
    That's Ultimate Thor looking right there. Looks pretty decent I say, but it will change and evolve probably to look more godlike than it is.
  • agentX
    Its the worst, THOR is suppose to be God like. And should be wearing something like Hercules wore in the series. They made it too Matrix/Superman style, NOT GOOD, MUST CHANGE!!
  • nate
    This might work for Thor, after being brought into the Avengers fold... But, for an Asgardian Thor, they should go a little more... Nordic looking... Just a touch more...
  • DarkRaven18599
    @ #13 Nelson I agree about the legs not having that scale-mail look like the arms are going to. However I would prefer something a little more rustic like maybe some furs or less finished leather. Supposed to look like a viking god after all. And the boots could go for more a bindings look like wrapped rawhide or something with a steelshod toe or sole.
  • The Ron
  • the trousers/boots look off, the rest is bear-able
  • WittyRemark23
    ...looks like Heath Ledger. Brad Pitt would make a way better Thor, IMO.
  • harm
    No 28 - THANK YOU! If your going to modernize him, make him modern. This looks like they're trying to combine worlds and it just looks akward. I hope the final product looks ok, after FX are input because this isn't doing it for me.
  • Craig
    He looks like a character from professional wrestling.
  • The Delightful Deviant
    he's look a lot better if they ditched the cape.
  • Nick S.
    again, they're trying too hard. like they did with the X-Men costumes.
  • Josh
    all you all need to chill. The movie hasn't come out yet.
  • tazz
    #31 i think it looks good plus u know they are combining both 616 and ultimate marvel storyline and costume. the Captian America costume is a mx of Captian America: Reborn and Ultimate Captian America #32 Thor always looked like a character from professional wrestling LOL. you remember fanboys wanted Triple H to play Thor LMAO
  • NeoSlyfer
    People need to realize that what you see in Comics just don't translate well in REAL LIFE! This is a perfect way of how to do Thor without letting it look cheesy or just down right stupid. The suit looks okay, the cape looks okay so far. People need to also remember this isn't the FINAL SUIT and that they haven't seen it in motion. I remember the first time we saw Blade people were rating it looked crappy. Who gives a shit BLADE kicked ass! lol
  • Cody w
    Dunno these almost look like some fan made photoshop crap.
  • Xerxex
    hopefully it will change.
  • sur@z
    READY TO RUMBLLLLLLeeeeee...! here we go! i agree with #32. i think Under Taker wud be his foe then. costume is shit!
  • Chris H.
    I'm onboard with Captain America's look, but I'm not so sure about Thor. The upper body armor blends with the pants. It produces a weird look. If you take a gander at the comics there is a distinct color difference between the upper and lower body. This really doesn't look so great.
  • alejo
    I have high hopes for this film and thus far everything has been spot on. obviously these are early concepts and "concept" is always sort of never exactly right on paper anyway but to be honest it looks like a dude dressed up in a Thor costume so he can go to Comic Con next month. i can picture him at the W San Diego lobby having a drink throwing his to the side every few minutes. i am sure the movie will do everything justice but out of context it looks funky.
  • blasphemer
    neither of these characters are going to work in live action movie form...Capt America is just too political and isnt going to get the attention they arae seeking for that fact alone...Thor is just too corny and too much of a cartoon to successfully cross over to live action...shoulda left these guys in the comic books...and both costumes , at this point anyway, flat out SUCK.....
  • Xerxex
    @DoomCanoe I see it too!!! Its freaking hilarious!!!
  • Thiscostumesucks
    This will be the worst movie ever!!!! Go ahead and bash me :-) I know, I know... the moive has not even come out but it will suck, just like this costume. Have a nice day!
    nope they forgot his helmet
  • Fox
    It needs shiny armour plates, to cover some of that black leather; the boots are completely wrong, unless Thor gets them from a GI Joe soldier. As it is, the suit doesn't look menacing at all, despite the serious pose from the actor. Also, the Mjöllnir should look like an old weapon (think middle-earth), worn with centuries or milenia of use, with runes imprinted on it, not a plastic toy with LEDs inside.
  • walmart, target
    it looks like a costume you can buy at walmart, target, etc.....
  • GILBoY
    its ok to me but WHERES THE F*KING WINGED HELMET !!!!
  • michael
    there are too many images of chris hemsworth as thor not wearing his signature winged helmet, jesus christ someone from marvel studios please tell the movie director or someone that thor's costume is incomplete without the winged helmet. he doesn't look like thor. all viking norse warriors had winged helmets
