Faces familiar and new lit by lightning in new Thor: The Dark World concept poster

Yesterday may have been all about our boy in red, white, and blue, but today the spotlight’s on everyone’s favorite God of Thunder.

Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel has released a brand-new teaser image for its upcoming superhero film Thor: The Dark World.

The fantastic new concept teaser poster shows off Chris Hemsworth’s Thor soaring high with his trusty hammer Mjolnir and surrounded by — what else — lightning.

We also have a look at Christopher Eccleston’s villainous Malekith, as well as returning cast members Sir Anthony Hopkins in the role of Thor’s almighty father and King of Asgaard Odin; Natalie Portman, who’s back as Thor’s human lady love and scientist Jane Foster; and Tom Hiddleston’s silver-tongued God of Mischief, Loki.

The teaser image does what it does best and also provides us with our very first look — and that’s pretty cool — at Algrim the Strong, played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost).

What do you guys think? Are you being teased enough?

Directed by Alan Taylor, Thor: The Dark World will hit theaters on Nov. 8, 2013.
