Just got back home to discover the latest Empire Magazine on my doorstep. It’s always an exciting prospect to see who made the front cover of the world’s best movie magazine and this month, I get to see Chris Hemsworth staring up at me dressed in the best image that we’ve seen yet from his new movie, Thor.

Thor is directed by Kenneth Branagh and also stars Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, Stellan Skarsgård, Ray Stevenson and Rene Russo. In these new images we get to see Thor dressed up in full costume, from the front and with no weird poses. Empire also have the first image of Natalie Portman sitting alongside her co-star and director.

I think I get my copy of Empire a day earlier than most as I’m a subscriber but the new issue must be out tomorrow at all newsagents where you can see these images and the full set visit report in all it’s glory!

Since I know nothing about Thor, can someone tell me who the silhouette is that Thor is standing face to face with? I assume it’s his nemesis. <— Steve tells me it could be Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston), his evil brother.
