Earlier today, comic book movie fans were treated to our first look at Chris Evans as Captain America through some concept art shared by AICN. The images looked great and the costume design matched the description we previously reported and definitely met our expectations.

But what about the Asgardian Avenger? We finally got our first ever official image released for Thor a few weeks back, featuring its star Chris Hemsworth in costume. That combined with his mighty hammer Mjolnir making a special appearance in Iron Man 2 helped build the excitement for what Marvel Studios will share with us next summer.

If all of that wasn’t enough however, Collider just put up another pair of concept art images, this time featuring Hemsworth as Thor, in full costume and wielding his hammer, Mjolnir.

Below are the two latest Thor pictures and the first thing you’ll notice is that his chest-plate, hair and cape match perfectly with the officially released photo. It’s also obvious that this artwork is rendered in the exact style by the same artist we saw with the Chris Evans-Captain America artwork from earlier today.

Take a look at Marvel’s God of Thunder [click to enlarge]:

These aren’t official images as far as we know and could just be fan art, but they match what we’ve heard and seen so far, and the timing and quality of these images are certainly convenient. While I’m more excited about the Thor movie than with Captain America, I think the star-spangled Avenger concept art may nudge out the Thor images by the slightest of margins. Maybe it’s Thor’s pants holding him back?

Either way, the costumes of The Avengers characters are all looking good so far and all seem to be staying true to the key elements from the comics.

Whether these Marvel movie concept images are official or not, the marketing campaign is beginning to roll out for Thor and The First Avenger: Captain America. With our first look at Chris Hemsworth as Thor debuting a few weeks back and a look at what may be the latest Marvel movie logos for these two projects coming this week in addition to these concept art images, we can expect to see much more from Marvel at Comic-Con next month.

We know Marvel will want to steal the show from their big competitors at Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment and we know there will be some major announcements and surprises.

Thor is directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, Rene Russo, Clark Gregg, Joshua Dallas, Tadanobu Asano and Joseph Gatt.

What do you think of these Thor images?

  1. It looks awful—I work in 3D, and I see better costumes mass marketed for 3D artists. This looks like an ordinary jumpsuit with a cape, which also looks weird. What happened to the REAL Thor’s muscle bulging strappy suit? Now that’s a suit with some muscle…

  2. Is it official that Chris got the part? I hope not because I believe that David Spade would have a good shot at getting the part, ha ha ha, I just can’t stop. Wait until all of the Avengers get together and say, I can’t believe it’s not Fabio then Capt Amer(Ricky Martin)runs his hands through Thor’s hair saying Gee your hair smells terrific.

  3. This is not Thor, no matter how you re-do the story. Fans have been willing to bend over backwards to let the directors, writers, producers, and actors use “license” and have their “vision” and express their “art.” in making these type of movies. But, enough is enough. This is pathetic. In this case these “movie folk” are being selfish. Asking the fans to give up too much of their vision of the characters, what they want and expect to see in the movie. I can see the new Cap working. But not this. I hope they stop this train wreck now before it gets any worse. Wait a few years and do Thor in CGI if you can’t find an actor now but, please, do not continue do this tragedy.

    • Amen. WELL SAID!
      I feel we are going to see Thor get robbed of visionary settings (think LOTR trilogy), and be thrown into a 21st century urban enviornment for most of the movie. This almost reeks of the 70′s TV series “SHAZAM”. SO MUCH POTENTIAL, so little ambition and creativity. This may dissapoint me, and others, A LOT. In doing so, it will certainly hinder the Avengers, I also think the Chris Evans lead in Captain America could be a blessing…or THE disaster. Come on, Capt. needs his wings! The red and white stripes should be there also! Why change that? YADDA YADDA YADDA…it’s a ‘wait and see” world, especially in cinema.

  4. I could use a belt!

  5. Did u just say Avatar had depth? Please tell me I read that wrong. Otherwise I would have to ask if u found Transformers to be an emotionally powerful film.

    • @Daniel f. – So you take another shot at me and my comments, i.e., opinions. So nice.

      Since you kicked first and now you’re pulling me in, so I’ll simply restate:

      I wrote: “…with an “Avatar”(like)[sic] depth of character/universe movie…”
      I wrote that as a comparative; foreshadowing the Thor characters and characterizations that will be required in the movie. The incredible depth of the Avatar movie characters was my quick example, and the complex landscapes the movie sported. I thought Avatars depth was/is a good semblance of how I BELIEVE a gritty, realistically ethereal world should be encompassing the Thor movie. Grittier even. Each player in the THOR production is special. EACH should be handled carefully in order to show the positions of power in Asgard simply by the interactions of it’s inhabitants with royality. Without such depth, THOR will fail. If it isn’t done with precision and depth almost…ALMOST over the top. THOR will fail. It’s THOR! It should be refreshingly powerful. Produced with foundational ideals in mind, the creativity will expound. ~or not. Nah! ~Jaymes

  6. Sorry that was meant as a shot at Avatar more than a shot at you.

    Still though Avatars characters were fairly shallow and obvious rip offs of the pochahontis story. They were far from deep or complex. The visuals were great sfx was amazing but aside from the lead all the smiths were shallow obvious insults toward Indian culture. Also Avatar is alot of things but Gritty was not one of them. Avatar was nearly the exact oposite of greaty. It was an epic (not good just large scale) brightly colored fantastic story and pretty to look at but not at all gritty.

  7. The plot of the Avengers movie could be, “Who stole Thor’s helmet”? At the end he wakes up and there it is, on the floor right beside his racecar bed. Cap yells Avengers Assemble and Thor yells, wait Cap. Now what Thor? I can’t find my belt. You already have it on, you sleep in your costume, ha ha ha. Or you could have the Hulk wearing it as an armband.

  8. Meh, don’t like the costume and the actor doesn’t exactly have the body of a god. Still it could be worse, they could have cast a short, stocky dork…

  9. thor is not,i repeat not,i repeat not,i repeat not in full marvel style manner costume. director kenneth branagh had stated he researched the thor character and marvel had stated that branagh gets it. but what part of no winged helmet & no belt don’t you understand? thor needs his belt & his helmet because he doesn’t look like thor also odin is not wearing a helmet. without these accsessories to his costume thor and odin just appear to be plain ordinary human beings. for god’s sake i hope this movie does not fail.and the same also for the captain america movie. please put the wings on captain america.

  10. Your right because all the plain ordinary people I know walk around with capes and tops with metal plating.

  11. where is the winged helmet? this is not a thor movie, it’s fabio dressed as a disco king.

    • Hahahahahaha…..

  12. Ridiculous.
    And ridiculous also all those who voted “ehi, they are both great!”.

  13. I don’t know, He dosen’t quite look the part for Thor. I’ve seen pics of the THOR helmet from the Comicon and it looks Great!!! But whats up with the “Pleather” pants??!!? He’s supposed to be a NORSE GOD, not a bohemian disco king. Chain mail on the legs (Like the arms) would work, and the Boots in the pictures have Gotta go. A Belt Would help as well. The New Captain America costume looks GOOD, especially for the era the story takes place in. I can only hope that they re-do Thor or it WILL be a BIG dissapointment for a LOT of fans.

  14. ohhh so the gods have rubber and plastic and vinyl in valhalla. Now we now.

  15. I do not think this version of Thor is right. Thor is a god that is able to stand toe to toe with the hulk. This guy and version of Thor do not give me that impression. This guy is too scrawny and unless they intend to cgi his height is too short. The costume needs the belt and helmet. They really should have tested it with fans first. I have feeling this norse god will be a flop.
