THOR : THE DARK WORLD Photos Show The Odinson in Pimp Silk

The first official trailer for THOR: THE DARK WORLD releases tomorrow, and in anticipation of this glorious Asgardian event, we’ve got our hands on some official stills from production. Featuring Chris Hemsworth in all of his gorgeous (dudes, let’s not even lie, the Hems is an Adonis) hammer tossing glory and the first glimpse of Lady Jane in Asgard, this is a welcome volley of news.

Check them out below:

You know… I’m usually quick to deride fantasy flicks for presenting their characters in unrealistic garb (they should be gritty and filthy! with smears of blood and dirt across their faces!), but for a wild bunch of Space Gods, the Asgardians look top notch. Far better than the regal-less, TV quality costume given to Thor in Joss Whedon’s THE AVENGERS.

Now… how exactly can I get one of those silk cloaks? I have the a feathered hat and ruby studded cane that would really set it off.

Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo & Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery” #83 in August, 1962. “Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle and Nigel Gostelow. The film releases November 8, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios.
