'Captain America' and 'Thor' Comic-Con posters: Wow

Marvel Studios and Paramount released a pair of Comic-Con-only posters for its movies "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger," and let's just say that if the films are anywhere near as cool as the artwork, fanboy hearts will be warmed in summer 2011.

Hyperbolic? Maybe a little. But it's the eve of Comic-Con, where hype rules all. And come on -- these posters are just great. First, take a look at Cap ( Chris Evans in the movie) standing tall in battle:

The newest is one of Thor and Odin ( Anthony Hopkins), which is below. Below that is a wide shot of Odin's throne, which suggests that if nothing else, Kenneth Branagh's movie will at least be pretty to look at.
