Marvel has released a new poster for Thor: The Dark World, and sadly, it’s cluttered beyond all reason.  The poster embraces the lazy “floating head” design, then crams in as many characters as possible (for those counting, this poster has ten characters on it).  “Busy” doesn’t even begin to describe the visual, and while that can sometimes work to a poster’s advantage (like the final theatrical poster for Iron Man 3), it can also be overwhelming and a complete abuse of Photoshop (like the IMAX poster for Iron Man 3).  The only thing this poster tells me is that Thor is about to get pelted with tiny meteors.

Hit the jump to check out the new U.K. poster.  The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie PortmanTom Hiddleston, Christopher Eccleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony HopkinsThor: The Dark World opens in 3D on November 8th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Thor: The Dark World:

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.

    I hope this movie is good, but of the three upcoming Marvel Studios films, it’s the one I’m most worried about. The first Thor was fun, but it really just felt like a prelude to Avengers, almost like “Well, we have to have Thor in there, so let’s crank this out.” I’m hoping they have a good arc in mind for him and aren’t just spiting these films out. The character has a lot of potential.

      I think its gonna turn out great. The director and cast is great, and its Marvel studios so I still have faith even after the disapointing start off with IM3. It better be good, they have the perfect actor, great supporting actors/actresses, and not to mention one of the best designed costumes next to Iron Man in the MCU, looks so real imho.

    Sheesh. I have stepped in tightly coiled piles in my front yard that look more well thought out than that poster.

    Can’t wait for it. Can’t wait for the rest of Phase 2 as well.

    I actually really like this poster. It’s packed, but it feels epic. I think it suits the fantasy setting of the film.

      I agree. I love it. Reminds me of the Fellowship of the ring poster with all the characters. Lets hope the movie is good :D

    • RiddleThemThis

      It reminds me of all the old star wars posters, I really dig it.

    This poster alone has a better storyline than the actual Man of Steel movie did.

      No, in-house poster making is becoming a lost art.

        Ah yes, you’re right. Careless of me to dismiss all those talents working for Mondo, for instance.

    I think the poster looks amazing – it has a very dark feeling and shows the characters. What I do think is pathetic is the ‘writing’ of the poster of this article…

  • Joeyaucoin

    I think it’s cool. This movie is going to dominate.

  • MAXI MOUNDS FAN!

    ‘The Wolverine’ is the best comic book movie this year and the best movie this Summer. I think ‘Thor – The Dark World’ will be the other GREAT comic book movie this year.
