Russia probably ought to sue the comic company under its hideous new laws banning the promotion of ‘non-traditional relationships’. After all, what else could a picture of a hunky man who’s about to give a good pounding with his big hammer be all about, especially when over in Russia the movie is called Top 2?
Now I really need to order a copy of the Russian version of the first movie, as who wouldn’t want to see Chris Hemsworth as a Top? And does that make Tom Hiddleston’s Loki a Bottom? It’s a pretty cool pic however unintentionally gay it might be. (And yes, we do know it’s actually Cyrillic and pronounced ‘Tor’, and for the naysayers who think it’s a joke poster, this is absolutely, 100% real).
Here’s The Dark World’s synopsis: ‘Marvel’s “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 and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne (credit not final) and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (credit not final) and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery “ #83 in August, 1962.’
The movie’s out October 30th 2013 in the UK, and November 8th in the US.
