Thor – First look at the Destroyer

Posted by LiveFor on April 29, 2010

This appears to be our first glimpse of something substantial from the Kenneth Branagh Thor film. Latino Review came across the image that seems to show the Destroyer standing in the middle of a desert.

This enchanted suit of armour has been knocking around the Marvel universe for 40 odd years and is a bit of a tough bad guy to beat.

The Destroyer is an enchanted suit of armor forged by Odin, and when it first appeared it was hinted that the Destroyer had been created as a weapon to face some dark menace from the stars. It is first seen residing in the Temple of darkness in Asia. The Destroyer is used by Thor’s arch-foe Loki on several occasions, and each time has actually come close to killing Thor.

The Destroyer is lifeless on its own – although it can act independently for short periods – until animated by the life-force of a sapient living being. Even when so animated, the Destroyer retains a rudimentary base personality that will eventually subvert the host unless a strong-willed individual is in control, such as Thor or Loki. Odin is also able to cast a spell that can force the animating persona from the armor and deactivate it. Once animated, the Destroyer possesses the strength to exceed beings such as Thor and is almost totally invulnerable. The armor also has the ability to project blasts of energy/heat/concussive force, emit a disintegration beam activated via its visor, manipulate electro-magnetism and molecules and achieve flight. – Wiki

The film follows 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.

If this is from the Thor shoot then it is looking very nice indeed.

      If it is real then it is very close to the comic design. Still odd that it is a statue kind of thing. Maybe it is for lighting and then CGI takes over when it moves
