Chris Hemsworth Looks Mighty And Powerful In New ‘Thor’ Poster

This demigod is ready to rock.

On Friday, Marvel and Disney unveiled the first teaser poster for Thor: The Dark World, the follow-up to the 2011 blockbuster starring Chris Hemsworth as the Nordic super hero.

“It doesn’t get much badder than Chris Hemsworth as Thor,” Marvel president of production Kevin Feige told USA Today.

“It’s rare that you have a poster that is just Chris Hemsworth shooting on the set . . . but he just looks like Thor. We just put in some lightning, and he’s got his hammer and you’re there. It’s just an incredibly striking image.”

The film, directed by Alan Taylor (whose resume includes episodes of Mad Men and Game of Thrones), will also see the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston asLoki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewisand a slew of others.

Christopher Eccleston (of Doctor Who fame) will portray the villain Malekith the Accursed.

Thor: The Dark World opens in theaters on Nov. 8, some six months after the release of another Marvel film: Iron Man 3.
