It's not about Asgard having no female warriors (the old Norse women were quite capable, and evidence suggests they would go into battle alongside men fairly often). Rather, it's about Sif become ''so awesome'' of a warrior that she's part of Thor's elite hit squad. Asgardian women can certainly kick ass (witness Frigga in Thor: The Dark World), but any warrior who wants to join Thor's merry band has to be the absolute top-shelf of badassery. Asgardians scoffed at Sif for wanting to be that caliber of warrior, not just for wanting to be a warrior in general. As they might scoff at any male who said "I'm going to join Thor and Warriors Two when I grow up!" by saying "Well, you'll have to be able to take on a dozen Einherjar signle-handed, boy."

[[WMG: Heimdall isn't a native Asgardian.]]

Like Hogun, he comes from another world and simply has been living in Asgard for centuries. Certainly explains why he seems to be the only black person there.

Think about it; the wardrobe, the deadpan voice, how completely unphased she is by Thor. Oh yeah, [[TheDoors she gets high]].

** Or maybe, in the MCU only, of course, the helmet itself comes with some important role in Asgard, like the Captain of the Guard or Head Mage or something - makes sense to throw Loki a bone when Thor is being made King of Asgard. However, this theory, if taken to its logical conclusion, also makes his continued usage of the helmet in ''Film/{{The Avengers}}'' either a Crowning Moment of Fridge Heartbreaking (as in, he can't bear to part with the only symbol of leadership they gave him in Asgard, regardless of how it is also a continual reminder of his perceived inferiority to Thor, and the idea that he is still Asgardian at heart and resolutely doesn't identify with the Jotun), or just really weird. (Or maybe this troper [[YoureInsane just needs to get some sleep]].)

** He may not even have to wait for ''Thor 2'' -- it's possible that WordOfGod about his villainhood in ''Film/TheAvengers'' is a misdirect, and that he's only TheDragon, and will have his HeelFaceTurn before the end of that movie.
*** According to another interview with Creator/TomHiddleston, while there will be spots of hope for Loki's redemption in ''Film/TheAvengers'', he will not be redeemed. It is rather likely, however, that the bigger villain will turn up in ''Thor 2'' and Loki will join with Thor in order to defeat this new threat.

Because they clearly state Thor is going to be in ''Film/TheAvengers'', and Loki used a secret passageway that wasn't Bifrost.

*** Creator/TomHiddleston, the actor who plays him, has said that [[http://splashpage.mtv.com/2011/09/01/thor-2-tom-hiddleston/ he thinks that Loki might get a shot a redemption]] in the solo ''Thor'' sequel set after ''Film/TheAvengers''.

* Thor has mentioned Nornheim, which isn't in the [[NorseMythology source material]] but the (admittedly non-canon) video game suggests it's the home of the Rock Trolls and a separate realm unto itself. That's seven.

* Let's take a leap and say Helheim and Muspelheim are the last two. This leaves out the traditional Niflheim (but let's face it, Jotunheim's got that covered- maybe they're the same?) and Nidavellir (again, maybe part of a larger realm?)

** He said "forged ''in'' a dying star," not "forged ''from'' a dying star." If Thor's hammer was neutronium, it would weigh ''twenty-nine-million tons.'' If Thor was strong enough to swing a ''twenty-nine-million ton'' hammer like an aluminum baseball bat, he wouldn't ''need'' to. He could kill Hulk with a missed punch.
