A week after revealing their first TV spots for the rapidly-approaching Thor, Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios have rolled out two new spots for the May 6 release. Check them out below as well as some helmet-focused posters revealed at the WonderCon over the weekend. The action adventure stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, Idris Elba, Clark Gregg and Colm Feore. Helmer Kenneth Branagh led the direction, based on a screenplay by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz and Don Payne.

Plot Concept: The story 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.
