So while everyone was having a good time last night, I was working on something pretty cool for the upcoming "Thor" movie. Most of you folks know by now that (spoiler removed!) is shown at the end credits of "Iron Man 2."
Today I have for you a cool pic that our spy sent us.
The photo you see below is THE DESTROYER!
As per my source, THE DESTROYER is sent to earth by Loki to destroy Thor. It stands at about 9 feet tall. The Destroyer is an enchanted suit of armor forged by Odin, and when it first appeared it was hinted that the Destroyer had been created as a weapon to face some dark menace from the stars. The Destroyer is used by Thor's arch-foe Loki on several occasions, and each time has actually come close to killing Thor.
The film follows the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
Movie title appears.
The scene darkens and ends, when it opens again we are in 'present day' (centuries after the last scene). We find ourselves on the Asgardian border, where Thor (now an adult), his adoptive brother Loki, Fandral, Hogun, Volstagg and Balder (who is actually an older character, as apposed to the comics) are riding thunderously on their horses. They have been tasked on a mission to find Ivaldi, the Gnome king of Svartalfheim. As they ride to the passageway between realms, we see a giant forge and three gnome blacksmiths at work. They are creating the mighty Mjolnir, to present to Thor upon his arrival.
