Glorious New Thor: The Dark World Poster Arrives
You're going to want to see this one...

01 August 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb

Enjoying the familiar superhero movie / Star Wars poster trope of the magical pyramid, this brand new Thor: The Dark World poster manages to include nearly a dozen characters from the upcoming Thor-quel, centring on Thor himself, (Chris Hemsworth), and his new-to-Asgard belle Jane (Natalie Portman).

What makes this poster so intriguing, aside from its detail - hello LuThor Heimdall! - is the looming face of Christopher Eccleston as Malekith The Accursed, the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, and the film's Big Bad - unless, of course, Loki has something to say about it (and chances are, he will).

Set one year after Avengers, the Thor sequel will see Asgard battered by war after invasion by the rag-tag Marauders - only for a worse threat to turn up in the form of Malekith and his Dark Elves, who are out for vengeance against the whole realm of Asgard because of an ancient grudge.

Says producer Craig Kyle, "Like in Indiana Jones, while there's high stakes and high threat and high danger, there's always fun. It's a very complicated blend. Thor is, until Guardians Of The Galaxy hits, by far our most wild, fringe Marvel piece. But that's why it's the Marvel Universe and not Marvel Earth!"

Thor: The Dark World hits cinemas on October 30, just in time to inspire a million Halloween costumes.

RE:
I think Struzan retired. (The Thor poster looks inspired by his work, though.) More
