IGN has premiered two new posters for Marvel's "Thor," one featuring Chris Hemsworth as the god of thunder and the other showcasing part of the movie's sprawling cast -- Hemsworth again, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and Idris Elba as Heimdall. Fans are, of course, likely to see these images again in a series of separate character banners sometime before the movie's May 6 premiere.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, "Thor" also stars Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, Stellan Skarsgård, Kat Dennings Joshua Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Ray Stevenson, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Clark Gregg and Samuel L. Jackson.

Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
