More Marvel concept art hits Web, gives fans better look at Thor
Hollywoodnews.com: Back in the day (and by that, I mean like two years ago), leaked cell phone photographs taken during exclusive set visits were how fans learned ahead of time how actors might look in costume on certain films.
Today, it’s all about the concept art.
At least, that’s how they are doing it at Marvel Studios. “Unofficial” fan art hitting the top movie sites are slowly but surely being confirmed by those in the know as close-enough-to-reality. So while these illustrations of Chris Evans as Captain America aren’t exactly what the actor will look like in next summer’s anticipated blockbuster, it’s close enough, according to the studio.
This morning, we are getting a closer look at Chris Hemsworth as the hammer-wielding Thor. And yes, it’s via concept art. Two photos originally ran on Collider. HitFix chimed in this morning, where Drew McWeeny, who actually visited the Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor” set, commented that while the images “definitely show you the final design for the way Thor looks” in next summer’s blockbuster, there are several details about it that are ill-served” by the concept art.
Probably because it’s just that. Concept art. You want to see the finished product, not the pre-production renditions, right?
Are these concept art images enough to excite you? Do they serve their purpose by maintaining chatter, at least until Comic-Con, when tangible “Thor” footage likely will be shown? I think these promo images are just that … promotion. And while it’s fun to discuss whether you like the way Thor’s hammer glows, I think I’ll wait until Branagh, Hemsworth and the “Thor” team are firing with real bullets before I pass judgment, and you should, as well.
