I never thought I would see the day when Hannibal Lecter would be the father of all Norse gods. Yet the Hollywood gods prove to be more powerful and made it happen. Anthony Hopkins will appear as Odin in the upcoming Thor movie which so far from the promotional material looks good. Chris Hemsworth is playing Thor and Tom Hiddleston is Loki, thats the guy in the green cape below.
I just have two gripes: 1) Where the hell are the helmets? 2) The leather pants don’t mesh well with the classic look armor and cape. This may be attributed to the fact that they are trying to merge the regular continuity look with the Ultimate version of Thor, but it just doesn’t seem to work. See, they took the following two versions:
In order to come up with this.
The result is a mish mash of the classic under armor, cape, and Mjolnir (the hammer) with the leather pants, beard, boots, glowing chest plates and helmetless look of the ultimate Thor. I know I’m jumping the gun and it may look great in the movie,but really why wear a cape unless he uses it to glide like Batman. It looks out of place. However, Marvel Studios has done great work so far so I a not too concerned. Ultimately, the goal is to merge the Hulk, Ironman, Captain America and Thor here in one big movie called The Avengers. We’ll see how this all plays out.
