Chris Hemsworth is the Norse god Thor in Kenneth Branagh's adaptation (seriously? Marvel hands this gig to Branagh? Ok, I guess.), starring Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston.

Background: Who is The Destroyer?

The Destroyer, at its core, is an enchanted suit of armor first forged by Thor's father Odin, the Asgardian ruler played in "Thor" by Anthony Hopkins. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the Destroyer first appeared in "Journey into Mystery" #118 in 1965, and despite its capacity for great destruction, the armored force of nature wasn't always intended as a thorn in Thor's side.
