Is it hot in here, or is it this official photo of Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman? The character posters were released for the prequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, and Hemsworth is looking fierce—but he's not the only one. Images of Charlize Theron as The Evil Queen, Emily Blunt as The Ice Queen, and Jessica Chastain as The Warrior were also unveield, and it has us extremely excited for next year's release.

The spinoff begins before Snow White and will tell the story of Queen Ravena's (Theron) sister Freya (Blunt), aka The Ice Queen, who fled their kingdom after suffering a heartbreaking betrayal. Locked away in her ice palace, she creates an army of huntsmen who must live by her demand to harden their hearts aginst love. Unfortunately, her two best huntsmen, Eric (Hemsworth) and Sara (Chastain) fall in love and are banished from her icy kingdom. Years later, Freya resurrects her sister Queen Ravena after she dies at the hands of Snow White, and together they create an unstoppable army that can only be defeated by Eric and Sara. Is it April 22 yet?

Scroll down to see the actors in character, and look out for the trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War on Wednesday.
