Verily, Odin has shone favor upon us this day! 

We would like to share with you the LEGO version of the Thor: The Dark World movie poster, only in theaters October 30th, to celebrate the upcoming release of LEGO®  Marvel™ Super Heroes videogame for Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3, Wii U™, Nintendo 3DS™, PlayStation® Vita, and PC.  The game will also be available for Xbox One® and PlayStation® 4 in November.  A special downloadable character (DLC) pack will be available for LEGO  Marvel Super Heroes at launch.  The Asgard DLC pack will include eight playable characters, all of whom are also featured in the film.

Created in the same style as the poster for the upcoming theatrical release, you’ll find that all of the characters in the upcoming film, from Thor and Jane Foster, to Malekith have been transformed into LEGO perfection.  You can download the poster here:  http://games.premiercomms.com/pics.asp?i=2305
