Thor: The Dark World - two new images
Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman appear in two new images from the set of Thor: The Dark World...
In the hectic relay race that is the Marvel cinematic universe, the international release of Iron Man 3 over the next few weeks appears to mark the beginning of Thor 2's marketing campaign. Late last week, we were treated to the first poster for The Dark World, and it's widely thought that its first trailer will be arriving in a matter of days too.
To stoke the flames of anticipation still further, here are two new images from Thor 2's production. The first is fairly predictable stuff: Chris Hemsworth as Thor, clutching his hammer, and pulling the sort of stern impression that implies he's about to clobber someone over the head with it.
The second image is rather more revealing, in that it shows Thor in a relatively buoyant mood, and enjoying a quiet sit down with his human love interest, Jane (a returning Natalie Portman). They're clearly in Asgard, which is a bit of an exotic holiday for Jane. What are they smiling about? Have they shared a private joke about their cloaks, or maybe that handsome pot in the background? Maybe we'll never know.
Thor: The Dark World is scheduled for release on the 30th October in the UK. Hurrah!
