    I have to admit, it didn't actually look too bad on Superman. But Superman is the quintessential superhero. I would prefer Thor with a little more Viking influence than the classic Kirby costume provides.

    Well,...I guess that is a small detail. One I hadn't actually thought about. Maybe I'm too much of a purist mixed with a bit of unrealistic and idealistic expectations. But whatever you call it that part of me, it always wants to see them make it work. I quote or paraphrase John Byrne from an article I read not too long ago where he basically says 'has Hollywood ever tried to make it work?' Too often they steer away from the known concept. But man,..that'd score points with me.

    I don't want to see underwear on the outside either.

    I think the ages of asgaurd outfit is the way to go. Saying that they should use his modern one to pad the arms is ******ed. Do you think we will never see Thor out of his primary suit? We need someone with big enough arms that you don't have to pad them with a suit or it will be inconsistent when we see the arms.

    Spider-Man proves that comic costumes can work in movies. Personally, I just prefer the new costume to the old one.

    Here's a manip I made of Thor. This would make for a badass costume IMO.

    Is that meant to be a Thor costume? If so, I see nothing Thor about it.

    It would be a nice Lord of the Rings costume though.

    As I told him in another thread it needs the metal plates on the front. I would want more detail in the movie but it's pretty good for a manip.

    Yes, metal plates are a must. The cape should be attached to the top two, as well.

    A definite yes to the plates/discs but a no to the cape for me.

    Maybe one or two scenes with the cape would be fine just as a nod to the classic look but I see it as a very non-essential part of the overall costume that could easily be done away with.

    He's a prince and a fantasy-style warrior. A cape is totally essential.

    Really? That lowers my opinion of the Ultimate universe even more.....as difficult as it may be to do so

    Ultimate Pietro stole his belt and made him useless. One of many reasons why I hate Ultimates!

    Without his belt he is not strong enough.......what?!?

    Did they completely rape Thor in that universe?

    Anyways, I hope they use the 616 Universe for this movie and not the Ultimate one.

    It'll be its own universe, as we've seen with Iron Man, the Hulk, etc. I just hope it borrows more from the 616 universe to build the character.

    The Ultimates story was great, but I always felt that Thor was lacking, I want it to borrow more from 616 too.

    lol, skars will probably never get that big to fill out an outfit with sleeves, so go with the classic thor costume so whatever size he gains at least his arms and maybe broader shoulders and back will distract u from the padded leg muscle due to the skinny legs syndrome.... :woot::whatever:

    Seriously though, i think it will be a mix of lord of the rings, pathfinder etc.

    I personally prefer Ultimate Thor's costume and hammer.
    And if they made the belt and the hammer the actual source of his power, it could tie perfectly in the science world of Iron Man and Incredible Hulk.
    Or, at least, be more believable.
    Just, please... leave mythology and magic to the stupid Harry Potter franchise.

    Maybe we'll just leave you to the stupid harry potter franchise! Mythology is a must with Thor! Even the Ultimates have mythological elements to Thor.
