I'm certain everyone reading this blog knows there's a Thor movie coming. Heck, the reason Upperdeck (the company I've done all those sketch cards for) is even doing a card set is merchandising for the film. Thor will look like this in the movie:
|Damn -- this boy's pretty!|
I really doubt the Vikings saw Thor like that. In the stories he was a furious brawler and drinker. He championed the stuff that people in polite society would tut-tut over and decry as the habits of the lower classes.
I dunno that a real Viking would have been impressed if Thor showed up and looked like Chris Hemsworth. In fact, I think he'd be downright disappointed.
To paraphrase Mickey from ROCKY, they'd want a guy who looks like he could eat lightning and crap thunder, drink a whole village under the table and lay the smack down on a swarm of frost giants. All at the same time.
