Two new posters for “Thor: The Dark World” bring leading ladies Natalie Portman and Jaimie Alexander to the forefront. While the most recent extended trailer added in more of Loki and Asgard, these shots remind fans that the new movie will have plenty of girl power.
Portman’s Jane Foster is by now no stranger to the magical world her love interest is a part of, but in “Thor: The Dark World” she will be a bit overwhelmed by her first trip to Thor’s home realm of Asgard. “It wasn’t hard because I was having those feelings myself,” Portman told Zap2it at D23 Expo. “The sets were so magnificent, and all of the people were so beautiful, in their beautiful clothes. It was pretty natural to just have my jaw dropped the whole time.”
The poster of Portman shows Jane in the feminine Asgardian outfit she’s been seen wearing in the many “Thor: The Dark World” trailers. Alexander’s Sif, meanwhile, shows off her battle-hardened nature as the warrior-goddess of Asgard in her poster.
“Thor: The Dark World” also stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins and Christopher Eccleston. It’s due in theaters November 8.
