Marvel Studios has released several new promotional items to help spread the word about its latest comic book movie adaptation, Thor, which wings its way into theaters on May 6th, the first assault in a string of comic book movies hitting the cineplex this summer. A new still image of the mighty Norse god of thunder and lightning accompanied a recent interview TheDailyMail conducted with Academy Award-nominated director Kenneth Branagh (Hamlet) in which he said that title actor Chris Hemsworth "is able to bring to this god all the physical beauty and magnificence he can muster. He’s got romance, he’s got humour—and he’s got a twinkle in his eye."
Additionally, a new character poster has debuted online, joining the six posters previously released. The new poster features Tadanobu Asano as Hogun the Grim, the first member of Thor's warrior allies, "The Warrior's Three," that also includes Ray Stevenson as Volstagg the Valiant and Joshua Dallas as Fandral the Dashing. Marvel has also hit the airwaves with two new TV spots for the movie that can now be watched online in full HD. Check 'em out below!
