Two images have arrived from the upcoming sequel to 2011's Thor. Fresh off the release of the first Thor: The Dark World poster, we get our first real glimpse of not only Thor himself (Chris Hemsworth), but also his love interest from the first movie, Natalie Portman.
It's been a Marvel-ous day for Movie Fanatic as we interviewed the cast of Iron Man 3 today and you can imagine our delight to come back to the office and discover these two photographic gems! More on Iron Man 3 coming soon, but one thing that stood out about these Thor: The Dark World images is the hint from Marvel CEO Kevin Feige for the photos' release, where he admitted that the Hemsworth-Portman love tandem might be a love triangle. With whom?
Why, the female that is complicating our earth-god romance is none other than Jaimie Alexander's warrior Sif!
“It’s superhero action, but it’s the familiar territory of a love triangle where the parents think your girlfriend is wrong for you. That’s how the best of these movies work,” Feige said in an interview with USA Today.
Also revealed is that our superhero will turn to his brother for help in the sequel, Loki. Hemsworth sounds a little excited to see how the dynamic plays out with the villain from The Avengers and Thor.
"Needing Loki’s help turns everything on its head,” Hemsworth said. “And it allows us to explore the underlying complexities of their relationship. It really ends up being a kind of chess match.”
