Concept Art: THOR & Frost Giants Look Very Different
Massive Black, Inc. is a full production artwork and asset outsourcing studio that contributed to Marvel's Thor. Hit the jump to see concept art that they created of Thor and the Frost Giants.
There is a bit of confusion as you will see below, some of the artwork is labeled with Hasbro being the client. However, the company's recent book, Massive Black: Volume 2 has their Thor artwork listed as film artwork, alongside G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Even an artist that works for the company, Wesley Burt, describes his work as early designs for the film. I'll assume what is labelled with Hasbro is for the toys, and what is not, isn't. But, that's a best guess.
"Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, "Thor", which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth."
