Brace yourselves for this one, comic book geeks.
It appears that some concept images showing both Chris Evans as Captain America for Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger and Chris Hemsworth as the mighty Norse god in Thor have shown up online via Ain’t It Cool News and Collider.
These could very well end up being fake or very rough drafts if you will, but they certainly look to be from some level of each respective production. The Captain America ones are obviously some sort of CGI-looking concept pieces, maybe to get an idea how Evans will look before the suits are finished, maybe for a separate direct-to-DVD movie? Who knows.

As for the Hemsworth pictures, they’re a little bit different. This time around it actually looks like the actor is in a costume, but the problem is that he looks exactly (not a little; I mean EXACTLY) like one of those models you see showing off the hot new Halloween costumes (“We should go as the electrical outlet and plug! No? You prefer Raggedy Ann & Andy? I don’t know about that…”) you see all over the place each October.
It’s very likely that between special effects and touch-ups and all sorts of other movie-making steps, these aren’t what we’re going to see in the movies. At the same time, if legit, you have to imagine that these aren’t too far off from the final product, either.
So what do you think of these possible Thor and World War II era Captain America costumes?
