Phase 2 of Marvel Studio’s Cinematic Universe is well underway. The juggernaut that actualized The Avengers onto the big screen has just released the first teaser poster for Thor: The Dark World. Thanks to his strong performance in The Avengers, Thor has many more groupies this time around and is ready to rock our world in this new electrifying poster. Check out the first teaser poster for Thor: The Dark World after the jump.
With production of Captain America: The Winter Solider underway and Iron Man 3 debuting within a few weeks, Marvel Studios is sitting pretty high and mighty, much like the all powerful Odin. Thor was well-regarded, but I would say under-the-radar, due to the fact that it was the God of Thunder’s first big movie. Taking only $181 million domestically, I would suspect to see that number almost double this time around with movie goers preparing for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The poster below is definitely a teaser. It is far more stoic and action oriented than the first teaser poster for Thor. With of the release of this teaser, Marvel has also announced that we should suspect the first trailer to drop sometime within the next week. I have a feeling we are far unready to behold what comes next in the Nine Realms.
