New Thor: The Dark World poster lands on Midgard

April 19th, 2013 by Marc Comments

 

You may not have seen this coming, but the first poster for the Thor sequel, namely Thor: The Dark World, features a big fella man with long hair holding a hammer. Also, lightning! And, um, snow!

Chances are you’re keen to see a trailer now, and the good news is that it’s coming in a week. The bad news is that it’s coming in a week and not, say, in a couple of days. Or, preferably, tomorrow.

Set one year after Avengers, the Thor-quel 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 (Christopher Ecclestone) 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!”

The Dark World hits cinemas on October 30th.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
