The Evil Queen returns! Universal has unveiled four new character posters for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, featuring two new faces.
The spinoff of Snow White and the Huntsman reunites Chris Hemsworth’s huntsman Eric with Charlize Theron’s evil queen Ravenna and introduces Jessica Chastain as a great warrior and Emily Blunt as an unstoppable ice queen. Long before Eric and Ravenna met Snow White (Kristen Stewart, who won’t be returning), Ravenna’s sister Freya (Blunt) fled their kingdom after a heartbreaking betrayal, shutting herself away in an icy palace. But when Freya’s two most beloved huntsmen, Eric and Sara (Chastain), defy her commands and fall in love, she casts them out into the wilderness.
Years later, when Freya learns that Ravenna has been vanquished by Snow White, she seeks to claim her Magic Mirror, only to find that her sister can be resurrected. Together, the two evil sisters amass an army that seems undefeatable, unless the two huntsmen can reunite and take on the forces of darkness.
Frank Darabont was set to direct but departed due to creative differences, and Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who was visual effects supervisor on the original film, signed on as director earlier this year.
The Huntsman is slated for an April 22 release. See the four posters below.
