This image was the main reason I resorted to horrific acts of libricide earlier this evening. All the other pretty scans I’m getting from this artbook are happy bonuses. The full version with text is here.
I seriously recommend buying a copy of the artbook if you can, as it’s chock full of all sorts of other gorgeous concept art and stills.
"Thor’s new sleeveless look was to achieve a less-armored look for the conversational scenes between the Avengers. The look also takes a cue from the comics and works well with Chris Hemsworth’s incredible physique. His muscular arms are the iconic statement of Thor, and the discs and red cape are the iconic statements of the cotsume."
— Costume designer Alexandra Byrne
I just had to include the quote about Hemsworth’s “incredible physique”.
As always, if you like this stuff you should seriously consider buying the book because it’s awesome.
More Thor from The Art of The Avengers! I pieced together the full double-page spread here.
"Odin and Thor cast large shadows. It was easy for Loki to be lost in the darkness. But because of his mother Frigga’s honest love and—before the big breakdown—Thor’s love for him as a brother, there’s a strength of good in Loki that he can’t shake no matter what he wants to do. And that makes him a complex character."
— Craig Kyle, Thor: The Dark World - The Art of the Movie. Art by Charlie Wen.
