He’s even got the Yarnbjorn axe!
A new image sees Avengers star Chris Hemsworth get a Viking makeover to star in a prequel to the Thor films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Although he’ll next be seen in Thor: Love and Thunder, a surprising new image pictures what Chris Hemsworth could look like if he starred in a prequel to the Thor films. The Avengers star is given a Viking makeover to imagine what the God of Thunder’s adventures might’ve looked like if the MCU explored the long history of Asgard. Hemsworth’s next solo film has been compared to Avengers 5, which should give some indication of the scale the film is aiming for.
The new posters from ‘stark46192’ uses the promotional art for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla to imagine the Viking-era Thor, complete with the weapon he wielded before Mjolnir, Jarnbjorn. Chris Hemsworth seamlessly fits in with the look for the Eivor character in the video game and it’s easy to see how a Thor prequel in this style could work. But in the meantime, the Avengers star is currently filming his next solo film in the MCU, so hopefully we won’t have to long to wait to discover more about Love and Thunder. Take a look at the prequel designs below.
