‘Thor 2′ Posters Show Off the God of Thunder and Loki in Style
With the release date of ‘Thor: The Dark World‘ only about two months away, two new posters have arrived to remind us why we’re excited for the next stage of Marvel’s Phase Two. With each poster focusing on Thor and Loki respectively, these look like the first of two in a series. We’ll probably get character posters for the rest of the film’s cast in the coming weeks as marketing heats up.
Unlike the shamefully ugly and hastily Photoshopped one-sheets that accompanied the first ‘Thor’ film, everything we’ve seen from the sequel has looked far more epic and classy. These two new character posters are no exception, depicting Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston in dramatic, painterly style. The Thor poster is bit obvious, but we’re genuinely kind of taken with the Loki print, which manages to say everything that needs to be said about the character without any fancy lightning effects.
‘Thor: The Dark World’ will arrive in theaters on November 8, 2013. Hemsworth and Hiddleston are once again joined by Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings and Jaimie Alexander. Newcomers to the world of Thor include Christopher Eccleston and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as the villains Malekith and Kurse.
