Just yesterday we got a glimpse of some concept art featuring Chris Evans as Captain America and today a few photos of Chris Hemsworth as Thor have surfaced. A couple of months ago a picture of the hero featuring his hair, his arm, and a bit of his chest was released by Marvel, and it left much to the imagination. This time, we’ve got a full body shot of Thor’s entire suit including his famous accessory, the hammer! Check it out…
I do like the idea that his arms aren’t fully exposed and he’s wearing a leather/rubber type of covering. It also looks like they’ve made a few alterations to his vest to make it less campy. The only thing that might be a bit much is the cape. A lot of people probably want it there but in comparison to Iron Man and even the Captain America costume it will stick out like a sore thumb. It’s also interesting that his helmet is nowhere to be found.
Thor is directed by Kenneth Branagh and will debut in theaters on May 6, 2011.
What do you think of the concept art for Thor’s costume? Do you think they should get rid of the cape?
