We’re inching closer and closer to the summer of 2011 and four months of non-stop big budget comic book movies. At this point, the one comic book adaptation The Blot’s looking forward to the most is Thor, and these simple portrait character one sheet movie posters do a great job of reinforcing that feeling. I love that Marvel’s finally incorporating Thor’s tag line, “The God of Thunder,” into the film’s marketing. And how great does Chris Hemsworth look as Thor!?! Hemsworth has Thor’s stare, which combines the Norse god’s cocky arrogance with anger, down perfectly, and from what I've seen in the film's trailers, he has done a great job with Thor's voice as well.

The four piece Thor portrait set/banner seen here is also pretty striking. However, I am surprised they included Idris Elba’s Heimdall instead of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in the poster set. Maybe this means we’ll be getting a villains portrait movie poster set at a later date, but I kind of doubt it. Either way, I want to see more of Thor and his fellow Asgardian gods ASAP!
Thor premieres in theaters nationwide on May 6, 2011.
