Walt Simonson's run would be more suited for a Thor movie IMO

They should get the little girl from Adventures in Babysitting to play Thor.

where do the studios get all the credit to fund these cheesy movies? and i'm sure they're going to make the budget at about $750 million so that it can gross about $15 million on the first weekend.

Asgard was in freaking Oklahoma.

It was nowhere near the basic core concept that you would want to see in an adaptation. After 600+ issues, you can stray from the fundamentals. But you don't start out that way as the introduction of the character.

I don't think we can jump to any conclusions about the finished product based on this picture. Can't compare a Photoshop job to the real costume in proper lighting. Once upon a time this would have been a picture drawn on paper by an artist. Now it's the creation of someone with cut and paste skills and a wacom pad.

You can draw a couple of valid conclusions.

For one, you can note that in spite of the fact that Captain America and Thor are allegedly two different productions with two different sets of filmmakers making two different movies, Marvel put out concept images for both of them on the same day, with the same style, by the same artist. So it would appear that they're less into the idea of making a Captain America movie and a Thor movie than they are with this stupid Avengers branding exercise.

You can also conclude pretty easily that the design here has less to do with any decisions by the filmmakers based on what is best for the world they're building (or not being allowed to built) than it does with assuring that Thor will fit into the world of Iron Man with the visual style established in Iron Man.

Or you could conclude that one rogue artist is gonna get fired for sending his work to his friends. Either way you gotta jump to reach these conclusions.

You believe it's a coincidence that concept art for Thor and Captain America was revealed on the same day with the same exact style and the same artist?
