According to Eric Williams, the game director (who replaces Cory Barlog by the way), this design came very early in the creation process, explaining that they wanted to go deeper into the real mythology. “Well, I don’t know, we wanted him to be a fat boy I think. There’s the portrayal of Marvel that’s interesting. We wanted to go deeper into the mythology. And it’s not all muscle, there is also a part of humanity “, he explains to our colleagues at Game Informer. Obviously, upon discovering this design, many were the reactions of Internet users who are divided. Some do not understand why Thor gained so much weight, others are happy that Odin’s son gorges on boar and shoots himself with mead all day long. If his look is divisive, one thing is for sure, the fight between Thor and Kratos promises to be epic. Besides, in this regard, it is the actor Ryan Hurst (Opie Winston in the Sons of Anarchy series) who will play Thor in God of War Ragnarok. A nice pick, certainly.
