The God of Thunder has a crimson cape in the first poster for Thor

Dec. 9, 2010by: Niki Stephens

The first poster for THOR is simple. It takes a familiar pose and adds a simple photoshop touch to it. Use a little desaturate then slap some color back on the cape with the history brush tool.

I think it's cool as shit. It may not be overly creative, but it's quite striking in my opinion. But I guess if you have a contrast of color like that, then it's bound to draw the eyes.

Take a look. Let us know if you enjoy it.

Extra Tidbit: I am actually really excited for this film. Is anyone else? Kenneth Branagh is the man.

meh

I'm still not seeing anything that's really making me excited, it might just be the general blandness from the comic con trailer, but i'm hoping it's going to be good. I love thor!

If you're referring to the 5 minute trailer that came out a few months back, I thought it was pretty exciting. Gave away too much, actually, but I wouldn't have called it "bland"

Met, the photoshop is a little too obvious with all that red against the black and white, but the poster is at least not cheesy, which I am thankful for. I actually would have preffered a more intriguing poster with simply his hammer or a symbol, something of the like. Seeing the hammer at the end of IM2 was enough to get me excited.

Looks sweet! The Hammer up front getting the attention is perfect as is the cape. This will be the surprise hit of 2011.

Looks like the current trend of posters is to have the character standing not facing the camera...

Batman Begins, Jonah Hex, Cowboys and Aliens, and a few others.

I'm not complaining, I dig it... and this one is really cool.

Just sort of noteworthy.

Not bad. I mean, with a little bit of tweeking it could be a Superman poster, or a Spawn poster, but still, not bad.

Looks incredible. This and Captain America are my most anticipated movies for 2011. Also, word on the street is that the first official trailer for Thor is due tomorrow.

What it must be like for actors like Hemsworth to be plastered across posters and billboards like this. If I were him, I would be constantly annoying my friends..."Oh, hey guys...did you catch that new Thor poster where I look like a total fucking badass? You knew that I was playing a Norse god, right? You know, the one that beats everyone's ass in the Marvel Universe? That one."

Poster doesn't do anything for me. What'll bring me to see this is Nat Portman and the surprisingly kick-ass trailer from comic-con

I'm reeeeally looking forward to this. Probably even more than Captain America, Green Lantern, and Cowboys & Aliens.

I like it

Just hope they are a little more careful with how this "mythology" fits in to real science than they were with Iron Man 2.

"A new element"...really? sigh...

I think you're putting a little to much thought into a comic book movie.

Apparently there is a rumor that the trailer will be released today. It will be nice to see it in HD, even though it probably will be similar to the the one that leaked during the summer.

Simple and effective, and I like that they didn't slap on the title. Call me stupid, but where's his helmet?

The poster is fine by me but the cape reminds me of Spawn (1997) movie poster.
