Chris Hemsworth’s New Costume Hints Towards His Role From A Marvel Comic

Is this a style swap?

Chris Hemsworth’s new costume revealed on the sets of Thor: Love and Thunder. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is entering its Phase 4 and with the WandaVision series, we can surely say that the fans are quite impressed with the Studios. Thor: Love and Thunder have started its shooting in Australia with director Taika Waititi of the prequel Thor: Ragnarok. The movie is all set to be released on May 6, 2022.

Chris Hemsworth’s New Costume In Thor: Love and Thunder

From the latest pics of Thor: Love and Thunder set, we can say that there has surely been a bonding between Thor and Star-Lord, as the duo was in the frenemies phase in Avengers: Endgame and now it seems that they are swapping each other’s style. It seems that Chris Hemsworth’s new costume is highly inspired by Star-Lord’s jacket. In the pictures, Hemsworth is seen in a red sleeveless jacket with black collars.

We can see that Chris Hemsworth’s new costume has also picked up elements from the comics. His boots have the crisscrossing yellow straps that have been a hallmark of the comics since 1962’s Journey Into Mystery #83.

Chris Hemsworth’s new costume quite resembles that in Thor’s comic book character Thunderstrike. With a classic red sleeveless jacket, tight pants, and yellow boots, fans are sure that Hemsworth’s character will be replicating Thunderstrike in Thor: Love and Thunder. Rumors are also rife that Jane Foster is gonna take over the role of Thor in the movie hence it can be a possibility that Hemsworth is landing himself into another version of the superhero.

Thunderstrike aka Eric Masterson became Thor for a brief period of time in the early 1990s replacing  Dr. Donald Blake in the comics. He didn’t play Thor for long as he moved on to become Thunderstrike and hence trading Mjolnir for an enchanted mace also named Thunderstrike.

Thor: Love and Thunder also features Star-Lord in a new costume. Although his current costume closely resembles the old one, it also has some new features. The armor on his shoulders and sleeves has quite an Asgardian feel to it hence, it seems like the two of them will be forming a new alliance in the upcoming movie as Thor was in their ship during Endgame.

In another set of pictures, Sean Gunn who portrays Kraglin in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies is also seen on the sets. He is wearing a new cybernetic headpiece that looks highly inspired by Yondu from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 played by Michael Rooker, who took care of Peter as a kid.

Karen Gillan is also seen in her Gamora outfit on the sets of Thor: Love and Thunder. She is seen in her inter-galactic suit and blue head makeup.
