    HOLY CRAP!!!! He looks decent! The suit looks too rubbery though but I'm sure that's because it's all close up and not lit right. I'm glad they gave him a bit of a beard though, as to me Thor always looks a little better with one or at least a 10 oclock shadow. LOL. I Need to see a pic of him from the front, with the helmet. HA and I beat Ulik!!!

    I think the suit will look good, once the graphic team touches it up. The comic depictions look like scale mail and not chainmail. but a lot of times he has no sleeves so maybe they'll mix it up! It's not a clear picture, but so far it looks better then i thought it would. I'm still interested to see what Green Lantern and Captain America will look like.

    He actually kinda looks like his director, Kenneth Branagh when Branagh was about 20 years younger.

    You're absolutely right sir!

    As am I.
    As for Thor's costume, it WAS sleevless but with Thor and the Asguardians return, his costume was updated. I know it looks like scale mail in the comics, but I dunno, the sleeves just don't look mettalic enough, but you're right about the touch ups. I perconally think the chain mail would've looked cooler. But I'm not complaining at all. Looks good to me.

      It looks BADASS!!! Out of all of the Thor costume designs, this one works the best cuz I can totally see him standing next to Iron Man and not looking too out of place. It doesn’t look METAL enough but I’m sure ILM will fix that problem. Over all I’m happy so far with the choice cuz some of those Thor costumes in the comics would look down right silly as HELL on screen! They still have to nail the helmet correctly too! BUT why are they being so tight-lipped on who’s playing Balder?!! Could it be Liam Hemsworth? OR BRANAGH HIMSELF AS BALDER?!

    Good question.
    I agree his current look (or the King of Asgard look) are his best. I'm really glad they went with this though. Totally agree about the helmet, that's gonna be a make or break thing. But knowing Marvel he won't have it on for most of the film. I may be wrong, and I hope I am but it's just a thought. I know someone said Don Blake isn't in the film but that makes no sense if this is about him being sent to Earth to learn some humitlity, he has to become Don Blake. They may not do the whole “he doesn't know who he is thing” but he has to be in it.

    Looks very good as a first pic. I'm still a little ripe about Alexander Skarsgard not getting the job, but its all good. I definitely have faith in this movie and it looks like they are capturing the right feel.
