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.

Eh... not the worse costume i've ever seen... it'll do for now.

Josef on Jun 3, 2010


@ Josef .....agree

AJ on Jun 3, 2010


I'm hoping they're gonna change it. some cool armour.

Daniel Felts on Jun 3, 2010


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

Tom Cruise on Jun 3, 2010


hhahaa the one to the right looks like Ron Burgundy trying to play Fabio

DoomCanoe on Jun 3, 2010


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).

The 13th Wang on Jun 3, 2010


Who the hell is Chris Hemsworth?

Brad Clooney on Jun 3, 2010


Needs way cooler armor. Just not loving it. Looks too bland and uninspiring.

Brad Clooney on Jun 3, 2010


pix for the game huh?

jojoe on Jun 3, 2010


Looks preety cool. Like Count Marzo in the MOTUC series!

Manuel on Jun 3, 2010


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..

Iggypop on Jun 3, 2010


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.

Ron on Jun 3, 2010


thank god his legs are not steel like his arms it would of looked bad like that

nelson on Jun 3, 2010


should have been more majestic, real armour-alike and torn... me thinks...

ryderup on Jun 3, 2010


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.

Zack on Jun 3, 2010


Theres a reason they look Photoshoped They are digital art not photos

Jimmy Love on Jun 3, 2010


I'm with #6, Hemsworth reminds me of Will Ferrell a little too much. "Stay classy asgard!"

Trey M on Jun 3, 2010


I hate to be the one to say this, but Thor is like HUGE. And this guy isn't.

JP on Jun 3, 2010


This is more like what you'd see in a costume catalog next Halloween. Lame.

Voice of Reason on Jun 3, 2010


I'm down. They're really nice concepts. Can't wait to see the finished design/costume.

Ragweed on Jun 3, 2010


Looks like he's wearing a tuxedo from outer space.

on Jun 3, 2010


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.

Movieraider321 on Jun 3, 2010


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!!

agentX on Jun 3, 2010


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...

nate on Jun 3, 2010


@ #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.

DarkRaven18599 on Jun 3, 2010


They should just use the Ulimate Thor.

The Ron on Jun 3, 2010


the trousers/boots look off, the rest is bear-able

m.a.russell on Jun 3, 2010


...looks like Heath Ledger. Brad Pitt would make a way better Thor, IMO.

WittyRemark23 on Jun 3, 2010


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.

harm on Jun 3, 2010


He looks like a character from professional wrestling.

Craig on Jun 3, 2010


he's look a lot better if they ditched the cape.

The Delightful Deviant on Jun 3, 2010


again, they're trying too hard. like they did with the X-Men costumes.

Nick S. on Jun 3, 2010


all you all need to chill. The movie hasn't come out yet.

Josh on Jun 3, 2010


#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

tazz on Jun 3, 2010


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

NeoSlyfer on Jun 3, 2010


Dunno these almost look like some fan made photoshop crap.

Cody w on Jun 3, 2010


hopefully it will change.

Xerxex on Jun 3, 2010


READY TO RUMBLLLLLLeeeeee...! here we go! i agree with #32. i think Under Taker wud be his foe then. costume is shit!

sur@z on Jun 3, 2010


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.

Chris H. on Jun 3, 2010


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.

alejo on Jun 3, 2010


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.....

blasphemer on Jun 3, 2010


@DoomCanoe I see it too!!! Its freaking hilarious!!!

Xerxex on Jun 3, 2010


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!

Thiscostumesucks on Jun 3, 2010


nope they forgot his helmet

DaftPUNKFAN on Jun 3, 2010


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.

Fox on Jun 4, 2010


it looks like a costume you can buy at walmart, target, etc.....

walmart, target on Jun 4, 2010


its ok to me but WHERES THE F*KING WINGED HELMET !!!!

GILBoY on Jun 4, 2010


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
