Thor gets a poster


Thor will smash his way onto the big screen when his first movie enters cinemas next year.

And Marvel aren’t about to let us forget it. A few images from the comic adap cropped up online earlier this year, and now the film’s first poster has been revealed.

Dark, simplistic and moody, it downplays the campiness that the project has been accused of, and really plays around with texture – from the big guy’s metallic suit to the red cape and the stone hammer.

Thor follows the titular God, an arrogant warlord who’s tried his father Odin’s (Anthony Hopkins) patience too many times. Banished to Earth, Thor must learn how to live among humans – which isn’t as bad as all that after he meets gorgeous scientist Jane Foster (Natalie Portman).

The trailer for Thor will hit later today, so be sure to check back for that.

Thor opens on 29 April, 2011.
