Comic Con Posters Captain America & Thor Comic Con Posters

As we countdown the last few days before the start of Comic-Con 2010, we have some early artwork from two of the event’s headline titles – Marvel’s upcoming movie adaptations of Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor.

The first image showcasing Chris Evan’s suit in Captain America was released last month, but this new hand-drawn poster offers a significantly more detailed look at the iconic costume.

Evans spoke out about Captain America’s new look a few weeks ago – but this piece of art should really help comic book fans visualize how the suit will look in action.

Personally, I was never really taken with the character’s classic look (especially the tiny wings on the helmet). However, I can’t imagine dedicated Captain America fans getting discouraged by the new concept artwork. The image certainly positions the film version of Captain America as an extremely capable, superhero soldier.

Check it out below (click on the image for a hi-res version):

A similar piece of concept artwork  has also been released for Thor. While we’ve definitely seen a number of images of Chris Hemsworth as Thor, the new image definitely gives a strong sense of how the character will look in action – instead of posing.

Some fans might still not be sold on Thor’s missing helmet but I think (judging by this new picture) that it might actually be a cool choice. If Hemsworth is able to duplicate the concept image, swinging his own prop hammer version of Mjolnir with the same authority, then I imagine he’ll be convincing as the warrior-son of Odin.

  1. Looking good!!!!!!

  2. Not bad.

  3. Yeah, looks pretty cool.

    I, too, am A-Okay with Thor being helmetless. He looks fine without his helmet, and his helmet is not all that integral to his persona. And I think this rendition of cap looks a whole ton better than those previous photoshops.

  4. awesome…except Cap has no gloves on? OOops.

    • He’s got brown leather gloves. Kind of hard to tell but they’re definitely a different color than his face.

  5. Looks awesome!!!

  6. Love them both. I just hope Evans doesn’t suck as Capt. America.

  7. Pictures are great, but not live footage pictures like The Green Lantern. I think these pictures are taken off from the comic book pages or there production drawing board. I would like to see a live shot of those images.

    • Yeah, production images would certainly be cool.

      And while I don’t have qualms with either picture, I don’t feel like we’ll see Hemsworth being as epic as Thor is in that picture right there. Seems like it’d be kinda hard to replicate it live-action.

  8. The Thor concept art is AWESOME!!!! Captain America’s artwork is cool too, but not as cool as the “look” of Thor.

  9. i just dont like the biker pants on thor, looks cheap.

  10. Could the picture of Thor and Loki be depicting Loki using the Spear of Odin against Thor? If this is a storyboard of an actual scene, and not just conceptual art, perhaps this inadvertantly gives a clue about the plot, in that perhaps part of Loki’s schemes is to acquire Odin’s Spear, which is one of the only weapons in existence which can rival Thor’s Hammer… Either that, or they just chose to have Loki’s weapon of choice be a spear, which I could be wrong but I don’t believe that is congruent with the comics. Either way, it’s fun to speculate, and the art is awesome!!

    • More like Loki’s scheme is to acquire Odin’s Throne, although i’m sure the spear would probably augment Loki’s magical powers.

  11. I like both of ’em! I’m just wondering if the Cap costume is the original one and then later in the film it converts to the more traditional costume from the comics.

  12. I’m glad everyone is thrilled by those pieces of junk I have just witnessed before me. Cap’s is more impressive, but not by a lot. I’m not feeling Thor running through a fire.

    Maybe they look a whole lot better there at the Con, maybe there’s more detail. From what I see though, ho hum and a bottle o rum.

    • I don’t think is fire is more likely a new version of the rainbow bridge that connects Asgard and Midgard(Earth)

  13. Cap needs to have the original shield shield for his time in WWII. I really (MO) dont want to see the round shield until he is brought to the present. If they have him jumping around and tossing the shield prior to the present time it will (again MO) ruin the development.

    We need to see him kicking Nazi a$$ using fighting techniques for that era then when he gets to present time find out those methods no longer work. Have him go through a period of “im to old fashion” until he gets some type of inspirational speech from a WWII vet or a child of a WWII vet. To let him/us now the IDEA of Captain America is not bound by time.

  14. Still want to see a helmet on Thor. hell, it’s even more important to me now, especially if they are keeping the biker chaps.
    Cap is not too bad, but, like someone else mentioned, wanna see the older shield too.

    Damn, am I asking too much??

    • so you want to see thors helmet?

      • lmao @ see thors helmet … anyway. I like the cap one but someone mentioned he doesnt have gloves but i just noticed he has no A on his head. still very dissapointed about the wings not being there neither

  15. OMG wait till you guys see the new released Thor picture!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Chris is freaking HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. um, am I the only one who thinks that little round thing on Thor’s costume looks like a small misshapen “breast”?

  17. The Thor poster looks amazing. If the film looks like that, then… wow.

    The Captain America one doesn’t look too shabby, either.

  18. Hey gang, I’ve updated this with hi-res versions of the banners.


  19. I heard a rumor that Loki was going to use the Destroyer Armor to take Odin’s throne, but I don’t know how accurate that rumor is. If it is true then Thor will be an awesome movie, although the “modern” costumes look odd I still think Thor will be a box office hit. Cap will be okay, I’m still skeptical about Evans as Captain America.

    • actually, the armor is in the movie. it was one of the first set images released.
