Default Do you think Thor should get a muscle suit?

The actor Chris Hemsorth is about six feet three inches. So height is no concern. I do however think that he is a bit skinny to play Thor. I don't want anything to rediculous like Juggernaut in X-men 3. Somthing more along the lines of Venom in Spider-man 3. Just an inch or two of added muscle at the most. Feel free to diss me all you like. I have no shame.

Have you seen the latest photos of him? He's pretty bulky at the moment. I always prefer natural muscle to movie magic muscle anyway.

Oh and I won't diss you. Sorry to dissapoint

It's all about quality; if it looks right, I'd prefer him to be slightly beyond a natural physique. But if it's going to look dodgy or odd, don't do it. Happily the actor is already reasonably big. But 'huge' he is definitely not. Well built, defined etc yes. Huge, no.

I wouldn't say Thor is "beyond a natural physique" he is really well toned, not like a body builder big .. like Hugh Jack big.

What I mean is, in the live action Avengers, Thor would be the one 'human' character I'd prefer to be pushed closer to his comic book physique (which IS body-builder'ish). Just to highlight (physically) that he's not actually human...

But like I said, if the quality's not there, then I'd rather leave it.

If they do use a muscle suit which I guess they won't lets hope its better than Juggernauts in X3

If he keeps bulking up, he'll look great!

No. He's already pretty big. This is a shot from 'A Perfect Getaway'



Now imagine what he'll look like by January if he's training and working out even harder?

He needs to be pretty big, he is meant to be a god so he needs to be impressive.

He needs more definition/tone. He'll probably bulk up a slight bit more, and that's all he really needs.

Wow some people really need impressing on here?!

Love to see how much muscle and bulk you'd all put on in 6-9months.

The guy looks fine, what are you wanting HHH size or something so he can barely move and looks stiff all the time!

Chris Hemsworth is in spectacular shape. We still have about a year before filming. Also, camaras can make him look even bigger.

Well yeah but if they're going for the 'realistic' approach in the Marvel U, Hemsworth is fine how he is or maybe a little bit bigger.

I think 'Thor' needs to have a good balance between fantasy and realism. Most of the movie is probably going to be about Thor living in Asgard. That is going to be pure fantasy, but sooner or later he has to come to Earth. How are people going to buy into a Greek god coming to earth to begin with? How is he going to interact with people and how are people going to react to him? If the creators focus on answering these questions, we are in for a great movie.

Oh yeah you're right, lol. So the question is, are they going to have two actors?
