Everyone's favorite Nordic God-turned-Avenger Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is back in the upcoming "Thor: The Dark World," and Marvel has unleashed a poster featuring the superhero's mighty, thunderous power.

Straightforward and to-the-point, the poster depicts Hemsworth wielding Mjölnir as lighting crashes, and rain and debris swirl around him. Looks like Thor is ready for a showdown. The story will no doubt be continued on the next poster.
