New poster and banner for Marvel’s “Thor”. I guess the use of red is in deference to Thor’s red cape. I guess. Curious that Idris Elba’s Heimdall gets the fourth and final spot on the “Thor” banner and not, you know, the villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Maybe they’re saving him for a second banner.
Thor spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (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.
