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

Katee Sackhoff for Valkyrie

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!
kinghulk - 1/4/2014, 12:13 PM
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.

Awesome stuff
too bad they were unused
CherryBomb - 1/4/2014, 12:30 PM
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 ;)
Comedian666 - 1/4/2014, 12:51 PM
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.
ALmazing - 1/4/2014, 1:26 PM
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.

MercwithMouth - 1/4/2014, 1:30 PM
Most look pretty good. Mangog looks bad. Looks like Archer from Small Soldiers :\
Vegeta - 1/4/2014, 1:33 PM
This concept art is great!
Tuuralihn - 1/4/2014, 1:38 PM
Holy mother of Thor that looks amazing! Every single one of these looks incredible!
BritishMonkey - 1/4/2014, 1:44 PM
Oh the possibilities... We could've had Valkyrie? And Mangog? He doesn't look bad though.
We need to have Valkyrie and Mangog play some part in Thor 3 now.
xfan320 - 1/4/2014, 1:45 PM

I smell a one-off story for Marvel hardbacks to publish!
SageMode - 1/4/2014, 1:45 PM
Mangog looks cool. I wonder if BRB is gonna have a more horse like face or one like the Korbinite shown above.
ThePowerCosmic - 1/4/2014, 2:03 PM
Beta Ray Bill would be a great way to make the 3rd film different from what they have done so far. He is such a unique character.
RogerRoger - 1/4/2014, 2:35 PM
If Marvel uses the Valkyrie in a future film they must use Annie Thorisdottir.
mattsquatch - 1/4/2014, 2:52 PM
I wish that any of these had been used. Instead, all we got was a Kronan, which was cool, but not enough to make up for all of the things that bugged me in Dark World.

@ThePowerCosmic - Completely agree. I love Beta Ray Bill, and with the opening-up of Thor's world into the Milky Way Galaxy, that'd be a great direction to go in.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/4/2014, 2:58 PM
Oldstrong Marauder! As in Caiera the Oldstrong from Planet Hulk!

And a freakin' Korbinite!

Just to have seen those running around would've been freakin' amazing.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/4/2014, 2:59 PM
Korbinites aren't horse-faced. They look like the image in the article. BRB looks horse-like because of all the alterations to his body.
rabid - 1/4/2014, 3:03 PM
They should have used all of these. Take out the silly love story and there'd be plenty of room for them all.

The Oldstrong and Korbonite designs could have opened doors to future stories.
AztecRainGod - 1/4/2014, 3:16 PM
Badass shit.

Too bad we got an action/comedy instead.

(And before anyone flips out and calls me a troll, I LIKED the movie. It just could have been SO MUCH more)
sameoldthing - 1/4/2014, 3:18 PM
Very cool art.
Hey,so far the Thor films have been very,very successful.
Many of these characters can be used in upcoming Thor movies.

I want at least 6 films based around Thor & his adventures.
Beta Ray Bill,Valkyrie,Enchantress,Hela,Balder,Ulik,Tyr & Surtur is a must!
TelaVizion - 1/4/2014, 3:47 PM
sameoldthing, after Thor 3, there will be no more solos for him. Focus will be on other franchises.
NinjaKickTheDamnRabbit - 1/4/2014, 3:50 PM
The film needed less Loki and more of this. I hope future Thor movies learn from the mistakes of the 2nd film.
JoJo1982 - 1/4/2014, 3:57 PM
I see this and wish they all was in the movie

But that would be a lot to cram in for 112 minutes
TheSoulEater - 1/4/2014, 4:03 PM
The Second Valkerie looked like a final fantasy character
Namor - 1/4/2014, 4:13 PM
They all look amazing to me.
