A newly revealed piece of concept art from Avengers: Endgame has shown us an alternative look for Chris Hemsworth’s Fat Thor.
Avengers: Endgame was a film that many audiences knew next to nothing about walking in. Thanks to a minimalistic marketing style, most people had no idea what would pop up in the film nor what it was even about. One of the film’s biggest surprises was Chris Hemsworth’s Thor who was notably out of shape, drinking beer by the barrel, and eating all kinds of fatty food while spending his days playing Fortnite with Korg and Miek.
The weight gain and change in lifestyle was over Thor’s guilt in regards to the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Thor had a weapon that could defeat Thanos and came close to killing him but failed to strike the final blow before Thanos wiped out half the universe. However, the look that Thor sported in the original concept art was a bit different from what ended up on the screen.
In a recent post, Avengers concept artist Wesley Burt shared an early look at Chris Hemsworth’s Thor from Avengers: Endgame. For the most part, the design stayed the same but notably had the character wear the eyepatch the wore in Thor: Ragnarok. You can see the full image below:
These are a couple of the early concepts I did for Thor in Endgame that made it thru, was a wild experience to imagine his journey & emotional state at the time, as even Ragnarok had barely begun filming yet, but I needed to embed the 5+ years of loss & ptsd.
