Brace yourself for a fair amount of Thor: The Dark World happenings. Advanced tickets for the anticipated Marvel sequel go on sale next Tuesday, Sept. 24, exclusively on Fandango. A full-length extended trailer recently aired during ABC’s telecast of Iron Man 2. More footage is expected to air when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres on ABC on Sept. 24. And then there are the two beautiful posters (in more ways than one) for the ladies in Thor’s life, which recently dropped courtesy of Marvel.com and BuzzSugar. Above is Jaimie Alexander as the warrior Sif. Below is Natalie Portman as Thor’s human lover, Jane.

People might not have realized in the earlier trailers that Jane takes an interstellar trip to Asgard in this sequel, directed by Alan Taylor of Game of Thrones fame. There’s even a reason why Thor must bring Portman’s scientist to his home realm (but I’ll avoid spilling it here, just in case you haven’t read it elsewhere and really don’t want to know). But that explains why this common citizen is wearing some warrior duds in the above poster.

These one-sheets continue a promotional push that included new character posters for Loki (Tom Hiddleton), Malekith (Christopher Eccleston), and the God of Thunder, himself. We’ve also seen recent TV spots, and this extended trailer:

This is basically the same trailer Marvel showed during its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con … minus a very important sequence that has yet to make it outside of San Diego (at least as far as I have seen). Kudos to the studio for protecting it, as well as guarding a few other major developments that we learned during a recent set visit to Asgard for the filming of Thor: The Dark World.

What, though, do you make of this news that The Dark World needed special rewrites by the unofficial king of Castle Marvel, Joss Whedon? Does it concern you that Taylor’s screenplay wasn’t in shooting shape by the time he started filming? Or do you trust in Whedon that he stepped in at the right moments, possibly to help this standalone Thor film bridge to the work that he’s about to do on his own sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron? Either way, Marvel’s Cinematic Universe rolls on.
