Thor: The Dark World's First Official Image Revealed

by Russ Burlingame

After months of leaks and a few marketing presentations that didn't provide anything official to the general public, Marvel Studios has finally released the first official photograph from the set of Thor: The Dark World. While it doesn't tell us much about the film itself, Empire Magazine (via CBM) has a shot today of director Alan Taylor standing beside star Chris Hemsworth in wardrobe as Thor, apparently looking wistfully over a ledge at something.

It doesn't look like too dark a moment; Thor's probably just surveying Asgard from above before the real action starts or something.

In any event, if you look at the detailing on the light-colored stones, the set seems to sync up with some of the earliest set photos taken before the film was even shooting.
