Mondo Unveils Ken Taylor's Poster for Marvel's 'Thor: The Dark World'
When the release of Kevin Tong's cool Gravity poster for the collectible arthouse Mondo came along, there were rumblings that another piece would be coming this week since Thor: The Dark World hits theaters with evening showings tomorrow night, and they have been confirmed. Ken Taylor has crafted a stellar poster for the Marvel sequel showing some pretty serious destruction in Asgard, as Thor looks on, seemingly helpless, but not defeated as his cape blows tattered in the wind, Mjolnir firmly in his hand. It's a gorgeous piece of work, but the color scheme just isn't my cup of tea. But if you want it, tomorrow is your day. Look!
Here are the two versions of Ken Taylor's Mondo poster for Thor: The Dark World, from Rolling Stone:
The print is a 24×36 inch screenprint with the right being an edition of 400 for $50 and the left being a variant edition of 175 that will cost $75. The print goes on sale at a random time Thursday, November 7th. Follow @MondoNews to learn when, and check your local listings for Thor: The Dark World showtimes.
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. What say you now?

(NYSE: DIS) and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) today announced an unprecedented deal for Marvel TV to bring multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel's most popular characters exclusively to the world's leading Internet TV Network beginning in 2015. This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs leading to a mini-series programming event. Led by a series focused on "Daredevil," followed by "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage," the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a culminating Marvel's "The Defenders" mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.
