Thor: The Dark World

Following the release of a cool piece of poster concept art which was handed out at Comic-Con, the official new poster for Thor: The Dark World has arrived, and it's pretty crowded. Though it's a Photoshop amalgamation of characters and imagery, the composition isn't bad. Christopher Eccleston’s malicious villain Malekith is featured prominently along with a mischievous Tom Hiddleston as Loki. Actually, the poster is quite similar to this final Iron Man 3 poster which also featured a lot of familiar faces. Make sure to come back next week when a new trailer, hopefully with some Comic-Con footage, arrives August 7th.

Here's the new poster for Alan Taylor's Thor: The Dark World from Entertainment Weekly:

Thor: The Dark World

In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and The Avengers, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) fights to restore order across the cosmos, but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones") directs Thor: The Dark World which arrives in theaters on November 8th in 3D. Excited yet?

Kind of excited, yes. Especially to see Natalie Portman in that costume 😀

That poster is awesome! Would have been better if it was hand made though like classic movie posters like Star Wars, to show a bunch of characters but be hand drawn! Well still awesome and I can't wait to see this movie!

What a mess. This is one of those posters in which the artist keeps trying to find balance by one-upping each side of the poster over and over.

Way too much stuff going on in that poster for my tastes.

Idris Elba looking all tough and shit.

This is a FANTASTIC example of "Design by committee." Everybody gets a say and suddenly the poster includes EVERYTHING! YUCK!

It's too much as I love Idris playing Heimdall, he would've been a perfect candidate to play Black Panther.

Not spoiling much, pretty easy to figure out.

Whatever that guy said that was a spoiler, true or not, EA/AB you guys delete posts here? Seems like a police state run blog site. Do you guys have certain rules for what to write besides the obvious, racial, sexists, PC comments? Spoilers that come ahead or not, I can't wait for this movie. Met Tom Hiddleston at the comic con and boy, does he know how to make a straight man turn the other way 😀

Crowded indeed!

Anyone see the Frank Frazetta influence? Other than that, this hould have been painted, not sure I have ever seen a good photoshop ensamble poster?

There's a lot going on that's for sure:P But I'm most excited to see how Brian Tyler tops his fantastic Iron Man 3 score with this. Can't wait to hear the sound he brings to this film! I have a feeling if he knocks this out of the park he's a lock for Avengers 2...or Guardians if Marvel and Whedon are still partial to Silvestri's amazing work on the first Avengers.

You could look at that poster and say there's a lot going on. Probably too much. But look at movies today, which are very often an overloaded assault on the senses. So in that context is it not appropriate?
