The June 2013 issue of Empire Magazine appears to be overflowing with comic book content, including a Wolverine cover and, apparently, some new photos from "Thor: The Dark World." Now some hi-res versions of those new photos have made their way online, thanks to thormovies.tumblr.com, and one of them offers the clearest shot of Thor to date. Check out the pics below.

Thor's new look differs from the more heroic look he sported in "Thor" and "Marvel's the Avengers." His new chest plate is more armored looking and lacks the lighting bolt-esque design his previous two had. His legs have the same pattern as his arm covering, and he also has a bit of a loin cloth look going on, making the whole outfit look more ancient and otherworldly. Overall the colors seem more muted, the red not as bright and the blues gone completely. If we were assigning action figure names to Thor's different looks, this one would definitely be "Mighty Battlin' and Brawlin' Thor," cause dude's ready to throw down.

The other two pics show Chris Hemsworth, as well as director Alan Taylor, on the set.
