Thor will therefore adopt a very round appearance, sporting red hair and an almost chubby face: surprising as it sounds, this design is actually much closer to the real Thor depicted in Norse mythology.
Greater loyalty to true mythology
The one who will lend his voice to this Thor, the air of nothing, rather badass is none other than Ryan Hurst, known for his role of Opie in the series Sons of Anarchy. Development director Eric Williams also confided in the studio’s vision for this character: “Ryan Hurst and Sony Santa Monica’s point of view on Thor is very different from the Australian you probably know”, the Australian in question being none other than Chris Hemsworth. “He is a tall, broad and hedonistic man a little childish, out of step with the image of Thor that people currently have”, he also clarified God of War Ragnarok does not yet have a specific release date but it will land in 2022 on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 .
