Behind the scenes vid, showing some of the sets, and glimpses of Idris Elba as Heimdall and Kurt Hopkins as Odin: www.sfx.co.uk/2010/06/10/video-on-the-set-of-thor/ So...Donald Blake and Thor look exactly the same? I mean, I get the practicality of having them played by the same guy, but I expected Blake to at least have shorter hair and no beard so there's a distinction between them, unless it's like one of those things were Blake looks different to everyone else, as shown by his reflection showing a different actor. Oh, and about the Helmet Wings: www.oneguysfaith.com/thor_wings.jpg
so, apparently they've decided to make "space thor"
Odin and Loki's armour look's consistent with Thor's, which nobody really had a big problem with before (just maybe some concerns about how fake it looked, which may be an issue here), and considering Odin has looked like this and this before, the movie version looks a bit more like a middle ground between Lord of the Rings type fancy armour and something a bit more advanced looking. I can buy primitive viking folk seeing these guys and worshipping them as gods.
i was weary at first, but i have to admit i'm starting to come around. i still would've preferred that they went with more of a norse influence than flash gordon, but i gotta say, this does look pretty cool.
and for all you people who care SO much, notice loki and odin have their helmets on (thor is likely holding his in a shot like this)
