Totally Gay Fan-Made “Thor 2” Poster Accidentally Used In Shanghai Cinema


Paging Natalie Portman! Some moviegoers in China got a bromantic surpriselast weekend when Thor 2: The Dark World opened in one Shanghai cinema.

Through some gloriously gay twist of fate, a very gay fan made poster featuring lead characters Thor and Loki in a romantic embrace was blown up and placed in the center of the theater along with posters for other studio films.

The photo then went viral on China’s social media behemoth Weibo, where user bbqfish2012, who created the photo, shared her frustration/excitement with her piece of fan art hitting the big time: “‘Damn it! If I were paid 1 yuan each time the photo is retweeted, I would be rich!”

Apparently Thor/Loki “shipping” (in which fanboys and girls create extensive romantic stories involving two popular comic book characters) is a big thing in gay geek fandom.

If so, we’re pretty sure that there will be geekgasms all over the internet when they cop a gander of this one.

    I’m throwing money at the screen but nothing is happening.

    LOL! nice!

    Also, you haven’t seen a lot of press about this in the Gay press because Lionsgate’s PR machine tried to come out with a bunch of articles saying “Ender’s Game” win’s weekend!

    What they leave out is that not only did ender’s Game have no other major competition, but that even with a Thursday Opening instead of Friday it made less than half of what Gravity did, and barely over a third of what “World War Z” did, and that movie was considered a disappointment.

    And lastly, it made less than “After Earth” did on it’s opening weekend. Weird that we don’t see the bigots mentioning THAT dubious distinction. :)

    They didn’t mention this in the previews. Thor 2 is going to be even better than I imagined! :D

    I’m (also, in case my other comment ever shows up) surprised that this site apparently blocks posts containing a six-letter word describing meaning sexual relationships between related people, which a Thor-Loki pairing would be.

    @hyhybt: Not blood siblings Loki was adopted.

    November 7 to February 1 and the comment *still* is pending moderation. Horrible, horrible system.

    If the person who made the poster was paid anything, he/she would be liable for infringement and use of copyrighted celebrity images.
