Winning Images from Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World Student Cosplay Contest

THROOM! KAPOW! Turns out onomatopoeia can help win you movie tickets.


Marvel and Kaplan International Colleges challenged students to reenact scenes from the Thor: The Dark World trailer to promote the movie’s release in the UK. With 438 photo entries coming in from 11 schools, the winners from Kaplan Cambridge had pretty decent odds, but that didn’t stop them from going all out on some entertaining Thor photos.


The Thor wig instills him with confidence.

You can check out the rest of the pictures from the winning photo series on the contest page. We’re super happy they threw some comic book sound effects in for good measure.

The winners got to walk the red carpet at the world premiere of Thor: The Dark World, but we’re guessing that the awesome Thor photos were their own reward.


Look how happy they are. Take that, schools who ban superhero costumes.
