    And more posters that would make Drew Struzan cry.

    Man, if any movie needed a poster by the surviving Hildebrant brother... or Boris or something... some sort of Frazetta knock-off.


    Funny thing is, most of the Marvel posters have been pretty good. Even the head shot ones for the Iron Man movies have been better arranged than the usual crap. And some of the Incredible Hulk ones were basically perfect. But the Thor ones... guh.


    EDIT: And not Marvel Films, but I defy you to tell me that the Raimi Spider-Man posters aren't perfect. DEFY I SAY!!!!

    Yeah those are bad posters, and they sure seem to be playing up Heimdall when I bet he is barely in it.

    And Elba is kinda sorta a bigger name than the guy playing Thor.

    Although really, there are two previously established stars in this movie, Dr. Lecter and Padme. Everyone else would be name below the title, if one of the actors didn't also happen to be the title character.

    I don't think they are that bad. They are different than the generic "standing in a bad ass pose facing the camera" posters most superhero movies have.

    Although the Captain America one is probably the best one i've ever seen.

    Which is funny, because a different background photoshopped in there, some different filters, and it would be about as terrible as these.

    Although you're kind of right, it's not that these are so bad, they're just incredibly boring and lazy. And there's so much that can be done with the material to make these interesting posters. That's more the sin -- that these should be awesome posters, but they just look like everything else. And everything else also tends to suck.

    Aside from the Harry Potter movies (and it seems even they have moved away from it) when's the last time we saw one of those old school type posters? Crystal Skull I guess.

    What? No Warriors Three?

    I can just picture a big close-up of Volstagg that says something like "The God of Eating" (or whatever Volstagg is supposed to be the god of).

    I'd never heard of Idris Elba before this film, I'm pretty sure he isn't a big name. Not to say he isn't good at what he does, but he isn't a draw, noone is going to see Thor because Idris Elba is in it.

    And have they added posters? When I went the first time I didn't see the Loki and Sif ones. Sif's inclusion makes Heimdall's make a little more sense, before it just seemed silly since there was no way he'd have a huge role with how cluttered the film is already.

    One good thing about the posters? No blue and orange.
    Bad thing? It makes it look like every character is called Thor.
