That Ice Giant looks bad ass
Who do you people think would play Valkyrie?
Praetorian - 1/4/2014, 12:04 PM
Beta Ray Bill is the only buff korbinite makes no sense

I'm not familiar with Marvel character 'Grendell'....but am I right in thinking it's not 'Grendell' from the Beowulf myth....who also has his arm torn off by 'Beowulf' himself....or is it?

Great Concept Art as usual, always enjoy viewing them!

too bad these whernt in the movie the frost giant and mangog look awsome.
TopCat89 - 1/4/2014, 12:14 PM
Just had a quick search....apparently 'Grendell' from the "Beowulf Myth" is in fact in the Thor comics...I never knew that, i always thought it was basic Norse Mythology only (Thor/Loki/Odin etc).

I think it's pretty interesting how Marvel intertwined common myths/legends with the comics.

I hope to god Enchantress is in the sequel.
As the big villain.
SuperCat - 1/4/2014, 12:30 PM
Like the 1st and 3rd Valkyrie designs. Maybe we'll see her in the third film?

*waits for the SJP for Beta Ray Bill (or BRB's wife/sister) comment*
TheRationalNerd - 1/4/2014, 12:43 PM
Sad...smh but instead we got Jane and that cheesy mystery Thor 3 better be solidly focused in Asgard. Forget Earth! There's like six other heroes there now plus shield. They can handle their own.
Martay - 1/4/2014, 12:50 PM
I was expecting a slew of 'colonizer' gags - guess SJP was instead the butt of the jokes ;)

Those Oldstrong and Kaifi concepts suggest that a World War Hulk movie might not actually be far off since they are the main races on the planet Hulk gets sent to.
Comedian666 - 1/4/2014, 12:52 PM
The Korbinites are the race Beta Ray Bill is a part of...
MsDarkPhoenix - 1/4/2014, 12:53 PM
Yes Valkyrie! We need Valkyrie! And Enchantress! And Executioner! I wish they make Thor 3, there are so many interesting characters from his stories I want to see on the big screen!
monsterswin - 1/4/2014, 1:15 PM
Valkyrie! Now THAT is cool. The ice giant isn't too bad either BUT Valkyrie. Too bad we had to deal with Kat Dennings and miss out on Valkyrie. That's a shame.
CherryBomb - 1/4/2014, 1:25 PM
Enchantress could be probably the first major female villain in a CBM - she's just as powerful and just and manipulative enough to be a tough contender for Thor.

I think my biggest complaint about this movie, besides the ill timed humor, is that I would have liked to see all 9 realms and those who live there, even if just briefly.
