    Hemsworth was well-cast.

    Since Marvel had the throne set at ComicCon -

    I just keep picturing these stills (Hemsworth & Hopkins) are from Marvel's cosplay contest.

    The more I see this the more I think it sucks.
    And, since when was Thor's costume part of his power?
    I'm still not even sure who the Asian and Black dudes are supposed to be because they aren't anyone from the comics but they are shown like we're supposed to know who they are.

    Ah, well, another crappy live actioner that will be ignored.

    I'm guessing you're not overly familiar with the comics as Hogan the Grim of the Warriors three was never white, and they made Heimdall black simply because the actor perfect for the role happened to be black.

    And I've seen nothing to suggest that he derives any power from his costume.

    That's not entirely true. He was whatever Chuck Bronson was. Lipka Tatar. Because Kirby drew him like Chuck Bronson. So he's got some Mongolian in him, from when they were conquering Eastern Europe with the raping and pillaging, but I don't know if anyone was calling Bronson Asian.


    Still, he's got some in him. And Bronson is dead.

    True, but I don't see anything wrong with them making him look like a more Asian mongolian so I don't see the casting as being off.

    Like I was saying, eh, either way. Bronson is dead.

    He is, and it's a shame. I mean look at the guy:



    He is Hogun the Grim.

    I mean, Tadanobu Asano certainly has that raw meat eating, badass look to him as well so I'm sure he'll do great. But if this movie had only been made say 20 years ago Bronson would have been amazing and Kirby would have been the happiest man in the world.

    He'd have been happier if he got his artwork back.



    Also, this thread title is bullcrap, I don't see Sam Jackson anywhere.

    Yeah, no doubt about that, but I bet it would have made him pretty darn happy to see the guy his modeled the character after get the part. And yeah I was expecting this to be a leak of Fury's cameo in the Thor movie(if he has one).

    I'm not sure how much the comics are like mythology, but in actual norse mythology much of Thor's power does indeed come from his `costume' in that his gauntlets and belt were both magical items that both doubled his strength.

    Thor in the comics does have access to such magical devices. I don't think he uses them often though.

    Ultimate Thor had the belt, not the gauntlets.
