First, let me say I am not complaining. I just don't think it is a very large film.

Loki appears in a room. A very plain room. Then there is a chance in a tunnel and a helicopter over a desert at night with no real personality. If not for title cards, how many would know they were in Germany? The forest has no real distinction, which is again probably why it is shot at night. The Helicarrier is the great living and breathing set, which is why they probably spend a lot of time there. New York has some breathtaking moments, but it almost feels like they are fighting over a few blocks as opposed to the whole city.

It reminds me of Thor and Cap. Cap in his obviously CGI hangars and Thor's little town or box style sets where even when you are out in the open, you know not really (Jotunheim and Asgard).

Not that there is anything wrong with it. They all still worked. They just aren't large, sprawling film. They aren't shot that way. Like the difference between "A Fistful of Dollars" and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly".

Check out Natalie Portman's hands; she's almost gripping one with the other--not relaxed, like Hemsworth's. So while her eyes and adoring smile (ugh) may be saying "yes" to Thor, her hands, IMO, are saying "no".

Or maybe she just has to go to the ladies' room and resents having to ask Sif where it is.

After seeing that Natalie Portman outfit I have to say that generally, the costume design of this movie looks quite good. I don't miss Alexandra Byrne.

I really hope I don't have to miss Patrick Doyle.

^ Agreed, it looks much more natural and tangible. The initial costume design was great, considering it had the grand task of bringing the comic costumes to life, but this has really grounded the outfits in realistic-looking materials and textures, avoiding the occasionally more plastic-like look of some of the original costumes.

So glad Chris decided to ditch the wig. And the style looks like they aren't having to hairspray him to the point where not a strand can move. Digging the Royal Cape Of Loveduppedness he's wearing too.

Very nice pictures, interesting article. This sounds awesome:

Quote:
To thwart him, Thor shows off an elevated fighting style in the new conflict sequences. "I really wanted to ramp up his skill set in battle," says Hemsworth. "He's not just this Viking throwing the hammer. Here he's more demigod with dynamic moves we haven't seen before."
I hope they don't take too much time to explain why Thor didn't call .

Tomorrow can't be soon enough, just one more day to go!

And by the way, I don't miss those awful wigs Hemsworth had to wear. So glad he used Snow White to grow out his hair in preparation for this film.

He's still wearing extensions, but yeah, not sad to see the total wig gone.

I can only agree with the people saying that the costumes (and hair) look much better this time around. There wasn't anything wrong with it before but it's taken a step up to the more organic feel that I had in mind when I first heard that they were making Thor.

So that is why it looks so much better. Nice.

I feel the same way, it's by far Thor's best costume in the MCU with the sleeveles armor he used against IM coming in second.

I'm anxious to see more of Thor's sleeveless armor in this film, hope it's in the trailer.

I love the new one, but the one from his first movie was all kinds of "win" to me. Just something about how the black and grey popped with that crimson red cape. Didn't care much for the Avengers one when he was amored up (loved the sleeveless), but I understand why they tried to give some more shared tones across the heroes.

The wig looked awful during his fight against the Hulk. It got all curly/wet looking out of nowhere.
