Thor Posters

"The Woman of Science." Ugh haven't we featured enough posters for Thor already? Yes, but there's still more. A series of six, count ’em six, new posters for Marvel's big superhero movie kickin' off the summer were debuted on various sites and collected by IMPAwards. There's one for all of the main characters and not-so-main - like the very pretty-to-look-at Jaimie Alexander as "The Goddess of War" Sif from Asgard. In addition to her: Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, who still kind of looks like Tilda Swinton. Have fun!

Head over to IMPAwards for high def. If you haven't seen the latest trailer for Thor, be sure to watch it here.

The powerful but arrogant immortal warrior Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he quickly becomes one of their finest defenders.

Marvel's Thor is directed by British actor/director Kenneth Branagh, who previously directed Shakespeare adaptations like Much Ado About Nothing and Hamlet, as well as the films Love's Labour's Lost, The Magic Flute and Sleuth. The script was written by Ashley Miller & Zack Stentz (of Agent Cody Banks, "Fringe") and Don Payne (My Super Ex-Girlfriend, 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer) from a story by J. Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich. Paramount is bringing Marvel's Thor to theaters in 3D starting on May 6th this summer.

    wtf? hollywood does really just 'spell' everything out does'nt it, what ever happened to watching a film and piecing things together yourself, and making what you want out of it.. there was a debate on whether films are subjective or whatever a while ago on here, i think when they just explain things to you its not really art is it? its like calling a can of beans art, its not art.. it says whats in it on the tin and should you wish to eat it, you will get what it says on the tin...hopefully.

      I said something similar to my girl this weekend while @ LACMA (contemporary art museum).. they had a piece that was literally.. 3 basket balls floating in a fish tank.. apparently this constitutes art in the contemporary world.

        Jeff Koons is probably over-successful, but I have to say "3-Ball 50/50 Tank" makes a lot more sense when it's next to "3-Ball Total Equilibrium Tank"

    Cheesy in your opinion, Alex, and yet, you post them! You really enjoy stirring the pot! .....That mentioned, the posters are ok......not as cheesy as some would claim, though!
    • He has to post them that's his job in his opinion they are cheesy get off his back if you dont like it go to another site
  • I think it's kinda cool.
  • agree with alex, jaimie alexander is amazzzzing to look at
  • Bodwulf
    Posters are great! Odin Sif and Thor are the best the others are good. Thanks for posting them even though you don't like them yourself. Odd how some look to movie releases not to enjoy them, but just to be critical of every little thing that does not match what they invisioned them to be.

    the woman of science? lol!

    These would have more effective without all the words over their faces. As someone unfamiliar with Thor universe, it's like there are 5 characters and then Natalie Portman thrown in for kicks.

    Why is everyone copying "the social network" poster?
  • If they took away the white text, this would be a fantastic poster set.
    • Emma
      agreed! I keep finding I prefer the promotional photos that were released earlier on than the posters they've been churning out because the text really takes away from it.

    This movie isn't going to be the tentpole they're looking for. Superhero movies that no one wants (Green Hornet, Hulk reboot, anyone?) haven't done well. And this will be no exception.

    in terms of typography ; it's not really that; they should revisit their ways but it makes a great sense to explain the characters....The Woman of science...pfff . That's Lame. They did that with Inception so that people know what to expect The Goddess of War should have been a black actress just to stick to the fact that she is the sister of Hemdall. Anyway, I hope this movie smashes the box office; pun intended.

    btw where is my new Green lantern's coming out in June Damnnit! loll I want them to convince me to see it, so come on!

    Hemsworth is certianly looking the part as Thor. Hopkins looks almost evil as Odin. I note that the movie premiers here in Australia in Sydney on 16 April. As an Aussie science fiction writer: I’ve been a Marvel Thor fan since the original Journey into Mystery of August 1962. If you get a chance check out some of my Marvel (mainly Odin and Thor) fan fiction. Just scroll down below my author profile and you will see over 40 fan fiction stories here:
