Marvel has released two character posters for Thor. The posters are simply the slices of a previously released character banner made into individual images. However, if Anthony Hopkins’ giant Odin-mug staring you down doesn’t make audiences want to see Thor, nothing will. In a related story, nothing will want to make audiences see Thor. [Update: There is now also a poster for Idris Elba’s character Heimdall, which you can check out after the jump.] [2nd Update: And now there’s one of Natalie Portman’s character Jane Foster. I should have just been patient and waited until they were all released. Anyway, I’ve added the new poster after the jump.] [3rd Update: Now there’s a poster of Jaimie Alexander as Sif. Who wants to take bets on how many more posters there will be before the day is over?]
Hit the jump to check out the posters. Thor stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Josh Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Idris Elba, Clark Gregg, and Colm Feore. The film opens in 3D on May 6th.

Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
