Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures released this week more than two dozen new still photographs from Thor, the hotly anticipated Kenneth Brannagh film based on the Marvel Comics superhero created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. More than just glamor shots of Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, the new photographs spotlight the film's supporting characters like Heimdall, Loki, Sif, Frigga and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson. Sadly, no Samuel L. Jackson.
