The trailer for God of War: Ragnarok presented Thor, which, however, does not resemble the version known from the Marvel movies. Some players they criticized image of this character, but now the creators explain the reasons behind creating such and not another Thor.
It must be admitted that Thor does not look like the typical superhero we know from the glass screen, but has a neglected hairstyle and a large belly. Eric Williams, director of God of War: Ragnarok, and Cory Barlog, creative director of the project in an interview with Game Informer, addressed the criticism of fans. They admitted that Marvel’s interpretation of Thor was one thing and it was interesting, but the authors in this case preferred to delve into the mythology from which one of the main Norse gods is derived. Developers wanted Thor to be just a big boy, while divinity is also associated with appropriate appearance and you do not need a muscular body.

According to Eric Williams, good-looking people are visible right away, not always because of their muscles, and in this case it is a divine wall, which is why appearance remains so important. Cory Barlog adds that you don’t need a perfectly sculpted figure to spread fear and show your power. In addition, when developing Thor, the designers of God of War: Ragnarok wanted him to be a large, immature, child-like human who, with powerful powers, could do whatever he wanted without working on skills. Thor, who has an obvious beer overgrowth, is not the only production hero who got hit by players.
Another is Angrboda, the Nordic giant and Loki’s wife. The community denies Santa Monica’s decision to portray her as a black-skinned woman. However, it should not be forgotten that God of War adapts and approaches mythology with a great distance. After all, Kratos, the main character of the series, derived from Greek mythology, goes to another world straight from the Norse myths. Additionally, in Helheim – the world of Norse mythology – he meets Zeus.
