Marvel fans just got another version of what Thor could have looked like when he faced down the Hulk on Sakaar in Thor: Ragnarok.
Yesterday, artist Karla Ortiz revealed concept art for Thor’s armor that had a fashionable found item look to it. However, the art revealed today by artist Andy Park reveals a version of Thor’s armor that’s a bit more tradition and wouldn’t be out of place in an episode of Game of Thrones or one of the Lord of the Rings movies.
“Here's a closeup of an early gladiator concept design l painted up of Thor from #ThorRagnarok @TaikaWaititi wanted to go short w/his hair so I went for it!” Park Tweeted. Check it out below.

Thor: Ragnarok ultimately chose to go with a version of Thor's armor that featured a futuristic helmet and dual swords that really fit with the Jack Kirby-inspired look of the film, but the short-hair look definitely stuck.
In addition to these looks at the early design for Thor's armor, fans have also been able to take a look at a more colorful look for Thor's brother, Loki, an early design for Valkyrie, and early concept art of the demon Surtur, as well as how fan-favorite stone man Korg was created. Korg has been such a breakout character that Marvel even gave him his own movie poster.
