Entertainment Weekly has presented us with the new poster for Marvel’s upcoming sequel for the God of Thunder, THOR: THE DARK WORLD. Nothing really special about the new poster. It is your traditional group poster that we have become accustomed to with these kinds of films. That being said, it is not a bad poster either. We do get a good look at Malekith (Christopher Eccleston), an alien ship (ties to Guardians of the Galaxy maybe???), the warriors three (Zachary Levi, Ray Stevenson and Tadanobu Asano), Sif (Jaimie Alexander), Odin (Anthony Hopkins), a horde of Dark Elves and, of course, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). One character we have not seen yet in any of the media is Algrim / Kurse (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) and this poster doesn’t fix that unfortunately.
So check out the poster below and let us know what you think.
Be sure to check back next week as we will post the new trailer as soon as it goes live online. Here is the first trailer:

SYNOPSIS: Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
