First Dark, Shadowy Teaser Poster for Marvel's Thor is Revealed
He is the immortal God of Thunder - The Mighty Thor! Marvel.com has revealed the first official teaser poster for Thor, their next epic adaptation of the mythical superhero from Asgard. The first trailer (not a bootleg) for Thor will be online tomorrow evening at around 4PM PST, so this is our first tease to hold us over until then. It looks like they might be downplaying the costume and hiding it a bit in the shadows, or just hinting that this is an epic comic book adaptation that will be dark and should be taken seriously. I'm leaning towards the latter. This is a pretty badass first poster, so check it out in all of its full glory below!
This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe - from present day Earth to the mythical realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth. Paramount has already set a May 6th summer release in 3D for Marvel's Thor. Stay tuned for the official trailer premiere tomorrow evening. Thoughts?

Uriah on Dec 9, 2010
it would be awesome. if they do the exact same thing with capt america's poster. same black and white with like the blue colored in.
Josef on Dec 9, 2010
I've always liked Thor and I'm really looking forward to this. Time now for Sgt. Rock, Turok and The Flash.
Hattori Hanzo on Dec 10, 2010
This is gonna be awesome!

The Ultimates comic had a great interpretation of Thor. Everyone, Ironman, Capt. America etc. thought Thor was a schizophrenic mutant who only thought he was a god. Hope they use that aspect to ground the fanciful story in some reality.... Bet they haven't though
Richie G on Dec 10, 2010
If I was a mutant, I could make a pretty convincing argument that I was a god, of course if I was a god I could make a very convincing argument that I was a mutant. Thor is full of awesomeness!

I'm just glad they didn't go with the blue/yellow contrast... This looks good and the armor doesn't look nearly as bad as the original pics that were released.
harm on Dec 10, 2010
simple but epic,looks better than the green lantern poster.
DR.DOOM on Dec 10, 2010
No winged helmet... yea? or nay?
LW on Dec 10, 2010
thors hammer should be wayyyyy bigger. ramona had a bigger fuckin hammer than this guy. he looks like an olympic swimmer or something. or like hes about to hop into his bmw and head into the offices down at starbucks enterprises
GerggTown on Dec 10, 2010
Cool concept... but this looks kind of silly...
ryderup on Dec 10, 2010

Robbie on Dec 10, 2010
The ultimates was the worst thing to happen to marvel hopefully they take no pages from those books then this should be just fine
Jimmy Love on Dec 10, 2010
I remember the last pics they posted .... I'll gladly wait for the trailer.
