See the Home of the Rock Trolls You Never Saw in THOR Concept Art by Wil Rees

"What Realm?! Alfheim? Nornheim?" In the first Thor film only one reference was made to Nornheim, when Thor was trying to figure out where he had been banished. In a deleted scene, Thor and Loki talk about the "time in Nornheim" when they fought a hundred warriors. But it turns out there was supposed to be a whole scene there.

In Thor we mainly got to see the main city of Asgard. In the latest Marvel movie Thor: The Dark World we got to see more, but it turns out there were plans to include at least one other Asgardian location in the first Thor film: Nornhiem. I contacted artist Wil Rees who worked on the first film and he confirmed that the home of the Rock Trolls (before they were banished to Vanaheim) was cut from the film, but he has the illustrations on his site.

Wil Madoc Rees is a professional concept illustrator who's worked on Hollywood movies like Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), Spider-Man (2002) and Serenity (2005).

  1. That would've been amazing. Maybe they can use it in the third Thor film?

  2. Stunning. I'm addicted to watching concept art vids on youtube. FZD school of design is my favorite, but anything will do.


    These are great.
