the destroyer image thor First Look at The Destroyer From Thor Movie

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.

  1. Impressive!!!

  2. This is the Marvel movie I'm looking forward to seeing most of all, forget your Spiderman or Xmen nonsense, this is the movie that has the potential to be truly epic in every possible way.

    Great director, interesting cast, something new to see up on the big screen, yeah, looking forward to this a lot.

  3. Samesies!

    I've been looking forward to this one for years and years :)

  4. Astonishing!

  5. Looks good to me!

    I can't wait for the trailer.

  6. I have been a THOR fan since I was a child. Kids teased me about him because of his long hair and funny speech pattern, but THOR has always been my favorite superhero. That being written I have always envisioned a THOR movie. My cast would have been Arnold Schwarzenegger as THOR, Cary Elwes as Fandral and Charlton Heston as Odin. I am REALLY looking forward to this movie!!!

  7. WOW… The Destroyer? I didn't see that coming. SWEET!!!

    I'm a huge Thor fan. When a was a teenager I had Thor posters on my bedroom wall next to my Samantha Fox Posters…LOL

  8. Looks pretty coool!! Looking forward to seeing some more characters also would like to see what Thor and Odin and Loki would look like!! :)

  9. Pipe and a large brandy to go with those rather fetching slippers?

  10. Looks pretty bad ass.

  11. Hell Yeah… that is going to be an amazing battle in theatres…

  12. Looks like it's gonna be kak-hot! what with this looking purfect and the pic of Odon son's mighty hammer showing up and looking perfect, bring it on.

  13. I´m not really a big fan of the “616” Thor, but I like his Ultimate counterpart.
    But of course, I´m gonna see the movie. Can´t wait to see how he interacts with Iron Man and the others in Avengers…

  14. WOW!!! Man this movie has yet to cease to impress me.

  15. I agree. Thor has a different feel and style from the avg. superhero, so I'm very intrigued by how this movie will be told and how it will look on the screen. It has the potential to be better than the other individual Avenger movies IMO. I also think it's possible that it will end up being better than the Avengers movie itself only because of the complexity behind incorporating all these superheroes into one movie. Either way, it's very exciting.

  16. Woah!!! Did they throw us a curve ball on this one!!! I like this design too because it's even looks better than the old bulky depictions of The Destroyer, he looks allot more agile and quicker combined with the strength. Incredible!!!

  17. Woah!!! Did they throw us a curve ball on this one!!! I like this design too because it's even looks better than the old bulky depictions of The Destroyer, he looks allot more agile and quicker combined with the strength. Incredible!!!

  18. Wow. That had the potential to look really hokey, but they made it look believable and, well, pretty badass. If they already overcame that feat with a really out-there element like The Destroyer then they'll easily have nailed the look of everything else. I'm impressed.

  19. Wow! How soon should we expect a trailer??

  20. Oh yeeeeah! The Destroyer! And looks like a perfect replica too.

    …Of course I may have been majorly spoiled on the movie's story just seeing this, but maybe just 'cause I'm a Thor fanboy. But I was going to see this eventually, so oh well.

  21. I have a weird feeling that the THOR trailer will be in front of Iron Man 2, but if not, then pray, to God or Odin, whichever you prefer, that it comes out by August.

  22. There won't be a Thor trailer for a couple months at least.

  23. I was hoping for a little more of a spiritual marking, chain-covered battle armor, but this still looks pretty cool.

  24. So true. At least we can trust MARVEL STUDIOS to get it right instead of enduring a CRAP FEST from Sony & Fox.

    The Destroyer looks very good. A highly anticipated film indeed.

  25. Comic-con … that's when we'll get the first trailer. The movie is a year away. No way they release a trailer for it already.

  26. Love your sig marcblee!

  27. Picture's been pulled. <=(

  28. With the Hobbit movies somewhat on hold, Marvel is gunning for Guillermo del Toro to direct and Neil Gaiman to write Dr. Strange [link removed]

    Can a Doctor Strange-centric “Defenders” movie that fits into what Marvel is now calling the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” finally be in the works?…

    SHIELD pulls together a paranormal special ops team after the Military/SHIELD/NASA made contact with a “Beyonder” (or Celestial, some sort of “magical” trans-dimensional entity, perhaps an Asgardian?) SHIELD realizes it doesn’t have the capabilities to ascertain if this “thing” is a threat or not. Thus sets the premise for the Defenders movie, where the use of occult, fringe science, brains, and brawn are employed to defeat a multi-dimensional and or “secret invasion” cosmic threat to save the day in such a way that Avengers cannot.

    The team that SHIELD assembles to defend us from such an invader will be a group of eccentric scientist/academia types culled to form the “Defenders”, the oddball counterpoint to the distinguished Avengers team. Project “Defenders” will be the “Twilight Zone” of the new Marvel movie franchises; they want it to be less of an action movie and have more of a creepy thriller type of vibe to it. The Defender operatives will consist of group leader – the brilliant Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange former neurosurgeon turned renowned occultist scholar and “metaphysicist” (character to be loosely based around Aleister Crowley/Terence McKenna eccentric by way of Robert Langdon), Namor McKenzie (Sub-Mariner, the superhuman Jacques-Yves Cousteau by way of Rudolf Steiner, believes he’s the literal Prince of Atlantis) , Dr. Robert Bruce Banner (Hulk, brilliant “omnidisciplinary” scientist, the world’s greatest expert on gamma radiation… need we say more?), Dr. Henry “Hank” Pym (Ant-Man, MIT professor renowned quantum physicist), and his partner Janet Van Dyne(Wasp, one-time student to Pym now associate, extremely bright but introverted Lady Gaga “individualist” type). Themes incorporated into Defenders movie include motifs from the bestselling magical/occult/secret society Dan Brown books, along with themes from the more recent Marvel series involving Secret [link removed] storylines (specifically the newer S.H.I.E.L.D. 2010 comic series). They’ll be looking for lean lesser-known actors to play non-super hero type characters, and there are ruminations that Strange may be pushed forward to play a crucial role as catalyst to merge the magical other-dimensional realms like Asgard into the more “realistic” Iron Man universe.

    Questions remain about the timeline and release of the Doctor Strange character into the big screen. Will we see Doctor Strange in a smallish part for the upcoming Avengers movie helping to usher in the “magical” component onto the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Or will Strange remain left out of the Avengers universe altogether for now, and another plot device or character be used to infuse the “magical elements” instead of him?… They are determined to bring on Dr. Strange movie post Ant-Man, the question remains will Strange remain side-lined for now? Some at Marvel are extremely hush-hush as plot points, characters as well as want-lists that are still being hashed-out for upcoming films, others think it’s good to gauge public opinion about what properties the public truly cares for and how they can be incorporated to the larger Marvel Movie-verse whilst staying true to the premise of the characters. Some of us like me see the potential and are really pushing for a Doctor Strange-centric Defenders movie but more importantly having Strange play a pivotal if not smallish role in the upcoming Avengers movie.
