Collider reader “Dan” has sent us some concept art of Chris Hemsworth as Thor. Earlier today, we ran a story about AICN landing concept art of Chris Evans in his Captain America outfit. While we were very circumspect about saying these images were official, it is telling that both of these images have leaked today and they have the same artistic style. You can also see how they compare to the official shot Marvel released in April.
The timing is indeed…interesting. Other times when we’ve posted “leaks,” we’ve been asked to take ’em down, so let’s see how this goes.
We can totally see why there was fan fretting over Captain America’s new duds — it’s very New Cap/Alex Ross, and the loss of the wings is a shocker. Cap is a hard character to get right — his origin is impossible to properly update, and he can’t seem jingoistic for foriegn territories. So it’s a real fine line here.
On the other hand, all you need is a big blond guy and a hammer and it spells T-H-O-R.
