Thor, the Kratos designer, makes a new armor for the god of thunder

When it comes to Thor, the thunder god of the Marvel house, the first things that come to mind are the Mjolnir hammer, the mighty armor and the red cloak. But what if we tried to renew its design? This is the question that has been asked Charlie Wen, character designer of Kratos and co-founder of Marvel's Visual Development.

On his Instagram profile, the artist posted a photo depicting Thor with a new suit, strongly inspired by the one shown in theUltimate Thor of Mark Millar is Bryan Hitch. "One of the few Concept Art in which Thor is portrayed without his cloak, inspired by the incredible Ultimate Marvel series"commented Wen. Immediately below you can also take a look at the classic design, in order to compare the two designs.

Charlie Wen is a pioneer of the "Visual Storytelling" technique, and boasts high-caliber collaborations in his palmarΓ©s. During his twenty-year career, the artist has worked on the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy films, as well as on some video games such as League of Legends and God of War. In particular, it was he who gave life to the Kratos created by David Jaffe and brought to life by Cory Barlog.

Hey guys, I'm continuing to share the first few B&W #thor #concepts I did before preproduction started on the film. This one was one of the few concepts of Thor without his cape, based on the #Ultimates comic series - which btw is incredible. It was one of the first times I felt like superheroes felt like real people in real situations πŸ’₯ * * * #marvel #mcu #earlyconcepts #norsemyth #godofthunder #imcharliewen

#happysaturday, everyone. Thought you might enjoy another very early Thor concept done even before preproduction started. I was trying out different actors to base #Thor on since @chrishemsworth didn’t have the role yet at the time. This was based on @therealkmckidd. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € * β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € * β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € * β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € * β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € * β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € #marvel #marvelstudiios #earlyconcept #conceptdesign #conceptart #visualdevelopment #mcu #imcharliewen
