Just a few hours ago, we posted concept art of Chris Evans as Captain America. Now, we’ve got a different Chris suited up in more concept art – this time, it’s Mr. Hemsworth as Marvel’s hammer-wielding hero, Thor.
Collider scored two exclusive images from one of their readers, so don’t assume these are official until Marvel sends confirmation. I remain a bit dubious as to the legitimacy of these photos, but since they so closely resemble the Captain America concept art, I’m willing to post them anyway. Click over to their site to see the remaining image.
(Spoiler for Iron Man 2 in the next paragraph.)
Aside from the post-credits sequence in Tony Stark’s latest adventure, this is also our first look at Mjolner (Thor’s infamous hammer, for the uninitiated). As you can see, it emits a blue glow; is that just part of these artist renderings, or will that be a feature we see on the big screen?
I’ve got to be honest: I think these images show us something that looks worse than one of those terrible knock-off Halloween costumes. I realize it’s unconfirmed concept art, but man – I am not down with this.
Thor thunders his way into theaters on May 6th, 2011. What do you think about these images, especially compared to the first official photo?
