Marvel Studios has kept its doors to the set of Thor tightly locked away and despite the Kenneth Branagh film having been in principal photography since January, we’ve yet to see a single official or leaked image of any of the characters or sets from the production.
That changed yesterday when our friends at Latino Review nabbed an exclusive look at one particular character – if you can call it that – in The Destroyer.
The Destroyer is a suit of armor forged by Odin that’s been tossed around in terms of ownership and control between several major characters in the Thor universe. One character in particular who took control of it was of course, Loki, Thor’s mischievous half-brother and the main villain of the film. The Destroyer is very powerful and in each encounter with the God of Thunder, it’s come pretty close to taking him out.
The image depicts The Destroyer armor standing in the desert set on a platform and if you compare to the look of the enchanted suit from the books, it’s almost identical.

Now we just need photos of the actual characters and sets from the movie. If you’re interested, also check out the fan-made Thor trailer.
Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, Joshua Dallas, Joseph Gatt and Clark Gregg.
