Update: Thor teaser trailer has been released. Watch it now!

Yesterday we learned that the first teaser trailer for Marvel’s Thor is just around the corner. Someone was able to catch a sneak peek of the footage and they gave us a little rundown of what to expect. While we’re waiting for that we can stare at the first official movie poster that’s been released for the film that features none other than the title character himself. Take a look…

Thor centers on a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

Thor is scheduled to hit theaters next year on May 6, 2011 and will be converted into 3D (unfortunately). The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, and Clark Gregg.

We don’t want to be Debbie Downers or anything but doesn’t this poster look a little “meh?” It’s nothing more than a blown up version of a profile shot. We see what they’re trying to do but it’s just not working. If they want to allude to the greatness of the character but still leave a little mystery they should have taken notes from Cowboys & Aliens. Have you seen that poster? That’s how you work with shadow people.

What do you think of the first poster for Thor?
