Expect THOR to be one good-looking dude
A week without Marvel news is like a puppy without an adorable tiny hat on its head; without it, things just wouldn't feel quite right. So it makes sense that we should start this week off with a Marvel movie moment. This week: THOR. THOR has definitely been a mixed bag of joy and depression as far as fellow Marvel-nerds are concerned. But lately it seems like things are shaping up on the set of THOR and with the first trailer expected to debut at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego, THOR news is quickly leaking out across the internet.
The latest drop comes from a comment posted in the talk back section of AICN. "IndustryKiller!" had this to say about the costumes of Kenneth Branagh's THOR...
"Everyone looks absolutely perfect, right down tot he color scheme. And its straight up medieval future tech looking. And yes Loki has black straight hair even know Hiddleston is blonde and curly. Thor is balls accurate though complete with cape, chain mail arms, the circles going down the front of the torso, and winged helmet.
I've seen the costumes, and they did absolutely fucking nail it. Very Walt Simonson. And I think my reputation as someone very critical of most comic book films procedes me here so I'm not just some excited fanboy. The only thing that is funny about Loki's costume is that while its gold and has the big horns sticking out, the helmet part of it, meaning the part that actually touches his head, kind of looks like a bicycle helmet, I think more so that it would, practically speaking, stay comfortable on the actor and not move around due to the horns. The warriors three are also the same kind of medieval future tech look, a little less traditional than the comic but still very very awesome and the look of each of the actors themselves is fucking dead on. Ray Stevenson looks especially cool in a chubby suit. Trust me, I think everyone here is going to be very very pleased as Branaugh just more or less adapted the comic. I was surprised at how well the looks work when translated into reality."
While this cannot be verified outside of the poster's comments, AICN seems to believe there is some validity to what "IndustyKiller!" said. I gotta say, I hope this turns out to be accurate. Originally I was against the development of a THOR movie because I didn't feel like it could possibly transfer well to film. This does my lack of confidence well; even if the film ends up sucking at least it will look cool!

Anyone else find this as encouraging as I do?
