* HugeGuyTinyGirl: NataliePortman is a tiny girl (5'3/160cm) compared to most guys, but next to ChrisHemsworth (6'3/191cm), she looks pocket-sized! It's not just the height; having bulked up so much, he probably has more than 100 pounds on her as well.

** Heimdall is now played by a black actor, Idris Elba. The film's version of Heimdall was carried over into the ''Thor: The Mighty Avenger'' comic which was made to be closer to the film than the regular comics. [[note]] Hilariously, Heimdall was described in myth as "the whitest of the gods." [[/note]]

[[/note]] [[note]] The "whitest of gods" can never have been about his skin color, which the Vikings must have been unconcerned with; as a rainbow god he stands for purity. [[/note]]

* MythologyGag: Multiple.
** Dr. Donald Blake was Thor's secret identity in his early Marvel comics, and is used here as a fake ID to get him out of S.H.I.E.L.D. custody. Not to mention that was the name on the "Hello my name is..." tag on the first shirt Jane gave him. She says he was her ex-boyfriend.
** A tourism poster talks about "Journey Into Mystery," the book where Thor first appeared for Marvel.
** Two other entries in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse: [[Film/IronMan Tony Stark]] is mentioned, as is a certain [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk expert on gamma-radiation]]. See TheStinger as well.
** Thor's line about [[Comicbook/TheAvengers having words with his brother]] is a reference to a very excellent moment in comic book history when he and the other Avengers pull off a BigDamnHeroes against Ultron. Said line has become something of a CatchPhrase for Thor, although it's only used once in the movie.
** A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent calls Sif, Hogun and Fandral [[Series/XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]], Creator/JackieChan and RobinHood. While already a multiple ShoutOut, in the comics Fandral once claimed to have spent time on Earth during the MiddleAges and married to a woman named Marian - so he may ''be'' Robin Hood.
** The scene where Loki speaks to the imprisoned Thor is extremely similar to a scene in ''ComicBook/TheUltimates 2''.
** In a ShoutOut to DC Comics and Creator/JackKirby's later creations, Bifröst is presented not as a simple solid rainbow but as a [[ComicBook/NewGods Boom Tube]].
** "Look at you...[[TitleDrop The Mighty Thor]]..."
** The Frost Giant calling Thor "princess". In Myth/NorseMythology, Thor disguised himself as Freyja to keep her from marrying Thrym king of Jötunheim and to get Mjölnir back.
** Yes, that ''is'' [[spoiler: [[ComicBook/{{Thanos}} The Infinity Gauntlet]]]] you saw in the treasure vault. Other items seen include the Eternal Flame, the Warlock's Eye, the Tablet of Life, and the [[ComicBook/DoctorStrange Orb of Agamotto]].

---> '''Jaimie Alexander:''' ''[about Thor and Sif]'' But there is a reason that we sort of subtly hinted to it in the first film. Just so that there is a door. If we want to go through that door, we can. They like to cover all their bases at {{Marvel}}.

*** He also bears a strong resemblance to Gort from ''Film/TheDayTheEarthStoodStill'', another tall, silver automaton who shoots a heat beam from his head.

* BuffySpeak: Darcy has a tendency to do this. For instance, she constantly refers to Mjölnir as "''Mew-Mew''". It's lampshaded when Selvig wonders what her scientific qualifications are, leading Jane to admit it's in ''political'' science, but she hired her because she was the only applicant they had.

* MundaneUtility: Mjölnir, the source of Thor's power and one of the most powerful weapons in the universe, is used at one point as a restraining device on [[spoiler:Loki]]. And no, it's not that it's too heavy; [[spoiler:Loki]] is also unworthy of wielding it, so of course he can't lift it. See FunctionalMagic.
