Yesterday we saw the first images of Captain America’s costume. Late last night, we got our first look at the full gear of Marvel’s other upcoming superhero Thor. Are you really excited yet?

The folks at Collider broke the story based on a reader email. And based on the art that you’ll see below, the images of Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth) standing in full costume, holding his hammer Mjöllnir, leave me with the following impressions: (a) they are heavily doctored with Photoshop, if not created from scratch digitally and (b) they match the Captain America designs we saw yesterday. This leads to the logical conclusion that they are legitimate concept art from with Marvel Studios. Next thought: that’s one hell of a leak.

A few thoughts as they relate to the costume itself: I like the way Thor looks, even though as many of my colleagues around the web have pointed out, he looks quite svelte. As Rob Hunter pointed out last night, in the second image (on the right), he looks a bit like Will Ferrell. Jokes aside, I dig the costume. It has a spandex, cartoony quality to it, but remember — Thor is from another world. He looks like a gnarly warrior. And again, thankfully they lost the winged helmet. Marvel Studios, keeping things on the cutting edge.

Below you’ll find the new concept art, plus the previously released official image. Please contrast and compare at will.
