This official film poster for Thor has been created for maximum impact on the viewer.

Look closely at the poster and think about what you can see. Which parts of the poster catch your eye? Who and what is represented here - what visual information can you pick up on? Think about light and shadow in the poster. How is it used and what effects does it have? Now think about what has been left out of the poster: other characters, locations, details of the action - the poster is clearly designed to focus our attention on Thor himself.


Use your skills of observation and deduction to create a character profile for Thor. You can add details from the other activities on this website as you go.
