The First Picture of Chris Hemsworth as ‘Thor’ Strikes the Web

Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy…

This morning the very first official photo of Chris Hemsworth, decked out in his `Thor ‘Norn finest, hit the inter-sphere, courtesy of Yahoo Movies. Any questions as to how Hemsworth would hold up in the Kirby-by-way-of-Coipel getup were rather soundly answered, as the design seems to strike a strong balance between superhero garb and warrior’s armor. Fans are also given assurances that yes, in fact, Kenneth Branaugh’s `Thor’ will be a bearded one, which is almost as big a deal for some fans (like, y’know, this one) as keeping the God of Thunder blond.Marvel EIC Joe Quesada spoke for many fans of the Odinson when he said, via Twitter, “Right from the comic page into the real world.” Indeed, the design looks to be almost entirely based on artist Olivier Coipel’s portrayal in the JMS- penned 2007 series, assuring continuity between media platforms. It will remain to be seen if this is the only costumed look that Hemsworth dons in the film, but it definitely inspires hope throughout fans in all the 9 worlds.

Now let’s see when the first pic of Mjolnir strikes…
