Don't forget Captain America


He may not have a woman wilting in his arms but he's got every other item on the Marvel movie poster checklist ticked of:
Hero in center...Check
Hero's left hand holding weapon...Check
Villian taking up a corner...Check
Side characters surrounding hero...Check
Random ship/machines just to take up space...Check

Now that I think about it Captain America wasn't just the first avenger, he was the first to do this list.

Really hope they don't go that route with CA:TWS. Widow leans against NO man for protection! (Neither does Sharon or Maria Hill LOL!)

I'm not thrilled that the editors of T:TDW left. I'm not necessarily requiring this movie be 2 1/2 hours, especially if that starts to feel draggy, but I'm not sure that the guy who edits episodes of Revolution or Cowboys and Aliens (Lebental) is really instilling a lot of confidence in me. Granted, he did do IM... but he also did IM2.

I'm glad D23 is next week; I think that Thor's presence there will be telling about what Marvel's doing with this movie.
It'd be cool to see Cap and Widow leaning against each other, but back to back, like partners in action!

Marvel really liked using Jeffrey Ford for a time. He co-edited IM3, CA:TFA, TA, and now he's doing CA:TWS. I would've thought they would bring him in to do re-edits on T:TDW instead of Dan Lebental.

Sif is on it. That is all I care about. But yeah, so unoriginal it is kinda of sad.

And it looks like more BTS folks departed with composer Burwell, like editors Malcolm Jamieson and Conrad Buff (they're gone too!). Now Dan Lebental and Wyatt Smith are editing the film.

I don't know, it looks like Marvel is giving Alan Taylor a hard time in post-production. Maybe it'll result in a better film, but I just don't know at this point...
What the hell? This whole thing is starting to scream interference.

Iron Man isn't holding a weapon... it's a high-tech prosthesis.

I like most of the Thor poster and I think it does look better than the Iron Man 3 one, but they really need to cut it out with the love interest leaning on the hero. Women go to see these movies as well and the poster gives off the wrong impression. Sif is awesome in that she's a woman and kicks total ass. If they make a Thor 3 and she becomes Thor's love interest, I will lose it if she's on the poster in the same position as Jane is in.

I agree. It helps that it doesn't incorporate an image that we've already seen in a previously released separate character poster.

Btw, anyone notice that we don't see Thor's right hand here?

Also if you look carefully you can catch a silhouette of Venom

Yeah, both posters are clearly similar but the Thor one is way better executed.

It's all about the color filters they used that give them those looks. I see it but orange tones always seem to make things look a bit less arty for some reason. I think it works since IM3 was supposed to be realistic while Thor: TDW is more fantastical, which the blue tones helps convey.

Given what we've seen about the movie, the pose makes sense
for Pepper in IM3, not as much, and Widow or Sharon Carter in Cap should definitely not be in that pose.
But Jane's a small, easily breakable (by asgardian standards at least), normal human woman
Between Thor grabbing her to fly her to Asgard, or trying to save her from Malekith, or Loki, or Kurse, she needs his protection, like it or not...

This made me laugh out loud. That would be refreshing indeed.

The Thor poster is beautiful, but I can't help cringe a bit at the "ooh, save me" pretty lady pose. I prefer the thoughtful look Jane had in the concept/art poster that came out, I think, for Comic Con.

And what's up with Loki--I can't tell if he's supposed to look diabolical or insane.

The poster is fine and will do exactly what it's supposed to do: Advertise the film to people who see it in theaters. However, I do hope that there are more posters for the film as time goes on. There ought to be some individual posters for Thor and the other character at the very least. It's popular to trash Iron Man 3's posters but several of them were iconic. Thor's posters should be up to that standard.
