Thor gets a theatrical poster and banner.

Nothing much to report, just what looks to be the final one-sheet for Marvel Comics' Thor. Yes, advertising a movie as 'from the studio that brought you a different movie' is the biggest stretch in marketing, but Marvel didn't have much else to go on. It's not like the kids are going to be thrilled with 'from the director of Dead Again and Mary Shelly's Frankenstein'. The poster itself seems like some weird hybrid of The Social Network and A Knight's Tale. Anyway, Elisabeth Rappe's interview with the screenwriter Don Payne put some of my fears to rest (the film is only 50% Earthbound), so we'll see. By the way, this is the first I've seen regarding Thor opening in IMAX as well as Digital 3D. It seemed like a no-brainer after Spider-Man 4 broke down and vacated the release date, but I presumed that Fast Five grabbing IMAX screens a week before would have prevented Marvel from doing the same. Interesting... Thanks IGN for getting the poster and the banner.
