‘Thor: The Dark World’ Posters Make Sure You Know This Is the Thor and Loki Show

By  · Published on August 26th, 2013


Everybody’s favorite Asgardian brothers are prominently displayed in two new posters for Thor: The Dark World, courtesy of Marvel. The two posters, which separately feature Thor and Loki, are kind of a breath of fresh air after the last poster, which crammed every single character from the last film plus a thousand bolts of lightning into the frame.

Marvel is giving the people what they want, which is a whole bunch of Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston. The Loki poster does a fantastic job capturing the character’s essence as Hiddleston sits in golden ruins with a mischevious grin on his face while fire rains down from the sky behind him. What did he just do?? More importantly ‐ why is Thor’s hammer Mjolnir sitting in the bottom righthand corner with no Thor in sight?

At first glance, the Thor poster (which you can see after the break) is just an unstoppable ball of epic energy. Look at the lightning bolts. He’s flying through the sky to throw his mighty hammer down. But take a second look at that face. Thor is so uninterested in whatever is going on in this scenario. Thor is having an existential crisis mid-air.
