Hey Gang! A pretty awesome photo has leaked out online today of one of the villains in Marvel's Thor movie... The Destroyer. We have virtually seen nothing from this movie, because security has been so tight, but it was only a matter of time before something snuck out of the production and made it's way online. As of right now we've just been hearing some pretty fantastic mind blowing things about Thor. Now we actually get to see something from the film.
I am going to throw out a *spoiler alert* now just to be safe, but I will say that it pretty much looks like what we've seen in the comics. Seeing this thing actually brought to life is pretty freaking incredible. The Destroyer is about nine feet tall, and is sent to Earth by Loki to take out Thor. This thing looks awesome, and I can't wait to see it up on the big screen!
Here's a description of what the Destroyer actually is.
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. It is first seen residing in the Temple of darkness in Asia. The Destroyer is used by Thor's arch-foe Loki on several occasions, and each time has actually come close to killing Thor.
This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, 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. Kenneth Branagh directs this fantasy epic which stars Australian actor Chris Hemsworth as the ancient Norse god, Tom Hiddleston as his evil brother Loki, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, a young woman who befriends Thor on Earth, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Thor's father and king of Asgard. Expect to see agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., previously seen in ''Iron Man,'' to make an appearance, further forshadowing the coming of The Avengers!
