The Norse Gods Love Their Chronicles of Riddick Cosplay


?The LA Times has the first pic of Thor, Odin, and Loki chilling in what is assumably Valhalla from the upcoming Thor movie. It’s also the first pic of Thor wielding Mjolnir, which should gratify fans as it seems wholly accurate to the comics. It’s also the first pic of Tom Hiddleston as Loki period, and he looks suitably weaselly. Unfortunately, it’s also the first pic of Odin, Loki and Thor dressed as Necromongers from The Chronicles of Riddick movie. Okay, fine, Thor’s not that bad. But Odin and Loki look like… well, they look about as Norse as Ronald McDonald.

Now, there’s a flip side to this, and that’s if the gods here will be portrayed as advanced beings/aliens who were identified as gods by early man — which I’m told is what Marvel’s doing to Thor and his kin in the comics — then I think this look actually works. However, I feel like that’s a lot for mass audiences to deal with. “Meet Thor. He’s the ancient thunder god of Norse myth… but he’s also an alien! Zing!” Enh, I guess we’ll see how it works out.
