Exclusive: New Images of Chris Hemsworth as THOR

Collider.com, 2 June 2010

Collider reader ďDanĒ 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.

Whatís especially cool about these Thor images is itís the first shot weíve seen of the Norse god wielding his hammer, Mjolner. Itís cool that not only does the top of the hammer glow, but youíll notice that the grip also emanates blue light. Itís also interesting to see the size of Mjolner in proportion to Thorís body. Of course, itís not the size of the hammer, but how you use it. How itís used in Thor is probably leveling buildings and fighting Norse gods.

Hit the jump to stop with the less-than-clever innuendo and check out the concept art. Thor hits theaters on May 6, 2011.

For those who donít know, Thor is being directed by Kenneth Branagh ('Hamlet'). The film also stars Natalie Portman as love-interest Jane Foster, Anthony Hopkins as Thorís papa, Odin, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the filmís villain. The film also stars Ray Stevenson ('Punisher: War Zone'), Tadanobu Asano ('Mongol'), and Joshua Dallas ('The Descent: Part 2') as the Warriors Three; Idris Elba ('The Wire') as Heimdall, Stellan Skarsgard ('Angels & Demons') as Selvig, and Jaimie Alexander ('Kyle XY') as Sif.
