New Thor: Love and Thunder concept art offers a first look at Thor’s armor with a clear connection to Captain America in Avengers: Endgame.
Concept art of Thor: Love and Thunder has a surprising connection to Captain America. Ahead of its release in July, Thor: Love and Thunder was one of the most exciting upcoming movies in the MCU. It promised the return of fan-favorite characters like Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, this time reprising the role of Mighty Thor. While succeeding at the box office, Thor: Love and Thunder received a mixed response from critics and audiences, especially compared to its predecessor Thor: Ragnarok, widely considered one of Marvel’s strongest films. However, aspects of Thor: Love and Thunder were praised, including the cast performances and comedic moments.
As is customary for any MCU project after its release, the artists who worked on the film began sharing concept art as soon as production began. So far, it’s provided insight into the character designs and alternate costumes being considered for Thor: Love and Thunder, including a Gorr that was more faithful to the comics than seen in the final film. Another art revealed a cut scene from Lady Sif where she explores an ice planet before her battle with Gorr. In the film itself, the audience sees Sif only briefly. The concept art offers a fascinating look at how movies, especially big-budget superhero feature films, evolve through the production process.
Now, visual artist Aleksi Briclot has shared some additional concept art from Thor: Love and Thunder this time representing Thor himself. In her caption, Briclot explains the inspiration for the look. Interestingly, this includes Captain America’s armor in Avengers: Endgame. Check out the concept art below:

It’s good to see all the different points of reference used by Briclot for the Thor: Love and Thunder concept art. While details from Thor’s look in the comics are awaited, Captain America’s armor in Avengers: Endgame is a more surprising inspiration. However, it works well, just subtle enough to provide deserved booster without replicating the armor exactly. As Briclot suggests, the Captain America connection ultimately makes sense considering Steve’s worth, as seen in one of the Avengers: Endgamethe most celebrated moments.
Although this look of Thor has been changed to Thor: Love and Thunder, it would have been nice to see him in the final film. The Captain America-inspired armor would have served as a meaningful way to honor Steve’s impact on the MCU and his friendship with Thor. Still, Thor’s final look in the movie is successful and also worth celebrating.
