    I see this as backwards logic for the look of Thor, Asgard, and Thor's brethren. True they are the gods worshipped by Nordic ancients(including Germanic peoples), but they are not Vikings.

    Of course as we recognize the methodology of creating gods and myths; Nordics would visualize their gods as appearing like them, but for the purpose of this film the inhabitants of Asgard are real and not the imaginings of the Nordic people.

    The Asgardians in this film exist independantly and presumably for countless millenia prior to the Viking culture, and so the appearance of a Viking(beards, fur clothing, etc.) should not necessarily influence in exacting detail the appearance of Asgardians.

    Jack Kirby did not straightjacket Asgardians into Viking apparel.

    These manips are fantastic guys, seriously great work, I'm amazed by some of the artistic talent on this website, beats the hell out of so many of the hollywood losers

    Especially when compared to that crappy poster they released for that Hayden Christiansen crime comedy caper with a huge multi-star cast that has some rappers I think.

    Keep up the great manips, they're superb...

    I think this would look absolutely amazing if there was some way to elongate just the body so that he has a little taller & leaner looking frame - a bit more like Hemsworth's actual body style.
    BTW, this is my favorite version of his costume. I hope that the film interpretation is very similar. (And the helmet kicks ash!)

    Great stuff Humanimal, Batsone!

    The only thing w/ that last poster is that the font on it seems like it would fit more with greek mythology rather than norse. Just my 2 cents.

    It's 12.30am and I need sleep. This was the biggest pain in the butt to do, no stock images, no decent shots of Jaimie, appalling Sif costumes for reference, I nearly threw in the towel more than once. Not quite sure what to make of the end product myself, I'll let others critique. Enjoy!.
