Our First Glimpse At Thor In Costume

Chris-hemsworth-thor Somebody out there must like seeing people in rubber costumes and red capes, right?

The publicity machine for Kenneth Branagh's Thor movie lumbers forward with your first glimpse of Thor in costume - as Thor!  He's the Norse god of thunder.

Just for your reference, here's good old Marvel Comic Thor:

Thor-hammer
And here's Chris Hemsworth, an actor, dressed as Thor. WARNING: This is a dramatic reenactment of a thunder god performed under controlled circumstances.  Do not dress up like this at home.

I've seen worse in the way of superhero costumes.  This one follows the trend of recent years in replacing primary colours and spandex with black rubber and silver accents, which is okay.  I don't even mind the photoshopped hammer.  But I can't get with the boots.  It's the treads.  The notion of a god with treads on his boots just deflates the aura.  Imagine Thor cleaning his boots by the fire after running through the sheep fold.  "By Odin's beard!  Sheep shit!"

You may also be wondering who Chris Hemsworth is.  I've read his imdb.com bio and I still can't figure it out (apparently he's Sam Perry's best friend, which yeah, no idea).  As far as I can tell, he was decanted from that factory in Australia dedicated to cloning stone-faced young men suitable only for construction work or Hollywood blockbusters.

Thor is also guaranteed to contain genuine Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba (unfortunately not as Stringer Bell) and other quality talent.  Best before date is May 2011.  Please refrigerate after opening.

My favorite Thor will always be the garage mechanic in Adventures in Babysitting.

I am very disappointed at the lighting... I am unable to fully ascertain my level of like or dislike of this man or this costume because his junk is fully in the shadows of black rubber. so I will have to abstain from forming an opinion until I can get a frontal view with proper lighting.

Why, he was James T. Kirk's dad who got 'sploded in the latest Star Trek movie! ;-) I honestly thought those boots were supposed to make him taller, but at over six feet what's the point?

This costume is useless without winged hat. LOKI HAS ALREADY WON. Odin's eyball! This is a travesty!

Maybe it's just me, but I'm thinkin' the God of Thunder probably doesn't need shin guards.
