See the Marvel specially-commissioned Thor 2 Posters

Olly Moss is in such demand these days – and with good reason. Tapped to create stylish movie posters or work with the Oscar team,  he’s also been commissioned to craft some even more exclusive items, and thanks to his blog, we can get a glimpse at them. Check out the work he did for Thor: The Dark World above and below.

These (sadly) won’t be cropping up in multiplex display cases, but were actually commissioned by Marvel lords Craig Kyle and Kevin Feige as wrap gifts for the cast and crew of The Dark World. According to Moss, each principle cast member got their own poster featuring their character, so if you really want to see one up close, you might have to get invited to Tom Hiddleston’s house or something (simmer down, Hiddlestoners). But you can at least see a high res version at Moss’ site.

And in lieu of regular payment, the filmmakers rewarded the artist with a Mjolnir, which we’re sure will come in the handy the next time he’s negotiating his fee for work…

Thor: The Dark World hits cinema screens on October 31st

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….
