First 'Thor' Picture Debuts! Chris Hemsworth In Costume!

Chris Hemsworth as ThorBy Odin's bushy beard, this news is so big, it deserves two exclamation points in the headline!!!

Yahoo Movies has the first image of Chris Hemsworth as Thor from the upcoming live-action movie directed by Kenneth Branagh. While the image is cropped in a unique way, it still gives us a great idea of how Hemsworth will look as Marvel's god of thunder.

There's a larger version of the image over at Yahoo, but what does the image tell us about the character's much-anticipated big-screen debut?

Well, for one, it looks like the costume Thor will be using in the film is based more upon Marvel's mainstream "Thor" series rather than the "Ultimate" version of Thor. This is especially interesting, given that many of the other Marvel movie characters have used the publisher's "Ultimate" universe as source material.

While we don't get to see Thor's magical hammer, Mjolnir, anyone following recent events in the Marvel movie universe might have already got a good look at the iconic weapon in one form or another. Combine the two, and it looks like Marvel has tapped a very interesting source for Thor's visual design.
