According to USA Today, Kevin Feige said about the poster:
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.
We are now expecting the first trailer to be released next week. Consider our excitement glands…excited!
Thor: The Dark World is released in Australia on 31 October 2013 from Disney. It releases in the US on 8 November 2013.
