Mirror, mirror on the wall, give us a Snow White who's not a damsel at all.
The photos unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con during Saturday's "Snow White and the Huntsman" panel have finally hit the web, and now the world can see Kristen Stewart decked out in a full suit of armor. Anyone worried that this movie would be confused with Lily Collins' "Snow White" should be able to see how different they are based on the photos released this week.
The rest of the cast of characters in the movie might be more what fans expected, but fortunately Kristen has surprised us with how badass her fairest-of-them-all princess actually is.
Chris Hemsworth looks a lot sexier than the huntsman we remember from the "Snow White" Disney cartoon, which has us really looking forward to the anticipated romance that will bloom between him and KStew. At yesterday's panel, he joked about getting into costume for the role, saying it required "about four or five of hours of rolling around in the mud, four days of drinking" and for the clothes to be dug up "from the backyard in Australia."
Our Prince Charming, played by "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" star Sam Claflin, looks like he isn't as sweet and wonderful as we remember either. Judging by his brooding, Jackson Rathbone-esque facial expression and the antagonistic way he is holding his sword, maybe he will end up being more bad than good.
But coming in exactly as we expected her to look was Snow White's evil stepmother, played by Charlize Theron. That dagger isn't especially subtle as a threat to our damsel-turned-warrior, but Charlize said that there is still more to her character than meets the eye. "This, as a fable, she sort of just starts off as a bad person, so it was important to understand [why she is the way she is]," she explained about her character. "A lot of her circumstances will kind of bleed into her actions ... She's a serial killer; I'm pretty much preparing to play a serial killer."
