    It’s Asgard baby, who is to say that they don’t have some sort of super durable plasticy metal?

    Bit of a push but I’m still psyched by this movie.

    I’m looking forward to the movie.

    Even being a god, it seems like a good Norseman deity would look more rugged. The spotless body armor and nice clean cape looks anachronistic unless he is already taking it easy on Earth/Midgard.

      Yeah, I always envision the norse Gods looking more like the Vikings in “The 13th Warrior”, but if we go by the old drawings of comic books they did wear weirdly shiny and needlessly complex armors, even in the “Ages of Thunder” series their armors are ceremonial clean and shiny.

    Has there been any word, yet, on if he is he the “real” 616 Thor or the Ultimized Thor … ?

    I know the costume looks “real,” but the rest of the Marvel movies have had rather Ultimized versions of the characters (Samuel L. Fury, Captain America’s costuming, etc.).

      It’s a bit of both as far as we know, since we see the hammer at end of Iron Man II we would assume it’s the ultimate Thor, but in the ultimate universe Thor has no human counterpart who needs to lift Mjolnir to become Thor like in 616 and we have a picture of a human Thor lifting the hammer. So it’s a weird version of 616 Thor (not Donald Blake as far as we know) in the ultimate U.
