First Actual Picture of Thor

Sorry kevinm1…mwmmwhaha!(that was a diabolical laugh by the way).

Let’s see if we get this first too.

I heard the actor playing Thor is the same guy who was Captain Kirk’s dad in last year’s Star Trek movie.

He is but I think Viggo Mortensen would also be cool too.

Hmm…I don’t know about Viggo. Weaving can pull off diabolical and sinister better…AND…he damn near already has the facial structure of Red Skull.

Red Skull strikes me as having a PhD in being a villain. Everything he does is with surgical precision. That is Hugo Weaving. Viggo Mortensen is more like a freaking machete. Just hack shit up, plain, simple, and without prejudice.

damn, i was going to post this in the other thor thread. i was scooped by big boss.

By Odin’s beard, it’s Sir Anthony Hopkins! Or should I say it’s Sir Anthony Hopkins in Odin’s beard:

You are a costume snob.

That shit looks fine to me as long as the writers do their job and the casting directors don’t take a cue from The Last Airbender.

Imagine how corny this would be if they dressed them like regular Vikings with the HUGE Valhalla twist on it.

They are GODS…I would hope they could find a good tailor in a few thousand years.

You can see they got around the muscle issue by having the costume fit neck to boot like a suit. But I don’t know…I’m still on the fence about this. I’ll hold judgment till I see more.

Oh, they could easily fuck this up. They have NEVER gotten a Thor movie right (yes, there was a Hulk vs Thor tv episode from WAAAAAY back with Lou Ferrigno).

he hardest part is making the whole concept believable by live actors.

They just showed that Clash of the Titans failed at this. It HAS to be story driven, not all out action with no plot.

^HAHAHAHAAH OK wait a min, YOU remember that episode of the HULK with Thor. I thought that was almost spot on. I mean THEY had THOR kinda dumb (and he is not). But he was having a good ol time with the Green Troll fighting and drinking. Wow I need to hulu that episode tonight.

Your showing your age there X

Those costumes look like something from an episode of power rangers or stargate. If they fuck this movie up it could scupper the Avengers film to a degree.

Yea, I mean on the one hand, the costumes look very ornamental? Which for kings is I guess status quo, God kings on the other hand? I’m not so sure about. And warriors, it needs to be functional and MAYBE ornamental, if the ornamentals make the wearer more intimidating more badass looking. For example a bear skull helmet or skulls on the shoulders is not all that functional, but it scares the shit out of your foes, in which case it becomes usefull.

It almost looks a little too Ironman. I mean Ironman is supposed to have a fucking metal suit on, it’s kinda his MO right? I guess if you showed this picture to someone with a cusory knowledge of comics and said, Hey do you know who this is? 9 times out of ten they are not going to say, Oh that’s Thor Duh!
