Marvel's Thor

Courage is Immortal. Paramount has unveiled a series of international posters, debuted over on Empire, for the upcoming summer release of Marvel's Thor featuring Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder. Given that this is the big movie that is kicking off the summer on May 6th, Paramount has to lead the way with some strong marketing and a hell of an opening weekend, which it looks like they're going to do. We've seen plenty of trailers and lots of posters for Thor already, so this imagery isn't too new, but it's cool to see, especially compared to that red poster in the US. Glad to see some action for once! Check them out below.

Click on either poster to see it bigger. 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!

    Great posters, but whats with the stupidly bright eyes?
  • Aniruddha Chowkidar
    The second poster looks cool..
  • Gay
    • C'mon man gay is like getting a bunch of men naked in a room and going off like mad fingerin each other in the ass and fisting and stuff, lubed up to the max masturbating the like crazy, how is this gay in any way? Unless you are turned on by muscular grown men with beards?
    • McWilly
      I meant to hit reply not like.....this dude always puts the comment "gay" on anything masculine like MMA fighting, Immortal hammer-wielding god with a beard as "Gay" . Nielsen is fighting some deeper issues with himself.
      • Yep McWilly. i wouldn't consider any of what is above particularly 'gay', does have a bit of S&M dungeon fetish look about it mind you and I suppose Thor could be a little 'bearish' if he let himself go a bit more, hehe. I dunno, I just dunnooooooooo any mooooore, my brain is melting and I'm bleeding out my eyes...
  • Ken7eleven
    The first looks like the X-men poster.
  • Roderick
    more better for a movie of this genre.
  • Ryderup
    This movie looks and feel so cheesy compared to both Iron man and Cap Am.
  • grapefruit
    I would like to see a front view of him with his helmet on.
  • the second poster could be good if only thor would be on it.
  • Anonymous
    They look good, and please dont delete this! but the second poster reminded me of Dr Horrible where the hammer says "The Hammer is My Penis"
  • awesome posters second looks better 😀
  • Marvel love floating head style posters
  • mochonko
    why havent they released a poster with his helmet on?
  • Why is Heimdall a black dude? That always looks out of place to me.
  • LOL! From the studio that brought you Iron Man, G.I. Joe, Kung Fu Panda, Star Trek, Up in the Air, Shutter Island, True Grit, and 292 other releases this past couple of years! Wow, THOR MUST BE GOOD THEN...
  • Cody W.
    Sorry Alex you throw the word epic around way too much...these suck.
  • Gh
    2nd one is much better and make no mistake, that Idris Elba role is just to bring more asses on the seats. I don't mind Elba as Heimdall but @ least they could have gone with a black actress as Sif...his sister...come on Marvel!
  • Django5000
    Second looks better. First has some weak Photoshop work around the Raised Hammer Asgard crowd scene. That image really deserves to be its' own poster. Don't you think? It's the only one of him in his Helmet. Even if he only wears it for 2 minutes the entire film, it's cool looking and deserves to be featured in the iconic Poster, for sure!
