The new costume has a noticeable less gold tint and the central metallic sections are now turning silver in colour. The report further noted down that the changes in the costume is intended for a sleeker and more Ultron-like look in the movie sequel as Thor battles the enemies.
According to the Design & Trend report, the change on Thor's costume follows the leaked information on Black Widow's costume update in Avengers 2. Actress Scarlett Johansson will reportedly sport a "TRON-style" look in the film that features electricity flowing and electroshock "widow sting" superpowers.
Adding up to Black Widow's new look is a new ride in the form of Harley Davidson's first electric motorcycle called "Project LiveWire." Instead of hearing the typical roaring sound of a Harley motorcycle, the electric motorcycle will be giving out a quiet electric purr when started.
"If you hear it in a true passby, it will sound like... a fighter jet flying by," Jeff Richlen, Harley's lead engineer, shared in the Cinema Blend report. At the moment, the electric motorcycle is still undergoing road testing.
Furthermore, it is anticipated that "Project LiveWire" will be a huge hit as well as in foreign countries especially after seeing Black Widow ride it in the upcoming blockbuster film. Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson will be reuniting with their "Avengers" co-stars Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) in "Avengers: Age of Ultron).
The other cast members include Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L Jackson (Nick Fury), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision) and James Spader (Ultron). "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is scheduled to be released in U.S. theaters on May 1, 2015.
