There’s something old-fashioned, almost “Star Wars” or “Raiders of the Lost Ark” -like, about the new poster for “Thor: The Dark World.”
Maybe it’s the lack of photoshopped photos of the cast, standing in random poses and staring off at nothing.
No, it’s a nicely done and composed poster – not unlike that for “Captain America: The First Avenger” or “Iron Man 3” – that shows the ever-growing cast, including Christopher Eccleston looming as villain Malekith the Accursed.
We even get Idris (“We are canceling the apocalypse!”) Elba as sturdy Heimdall.
“Thor: The Dark World” comes to theaters on Nov. 8.
