Agreed. Especially since *Thor* seemed to respect and love Loki just fine. In just a slightly different timeline ( maybe where Loki found out his heritage well before canon ), things could have turned out much differently.

Of course, Thor never really seemed to listen to Loki much. so maybe an alternate timeline where a)Loki got reconciled with his heritage earlier and b) Thor learned to listen to his brother.
ophelia, you're breaking my heart

I'm still bummed that Branagh is returning to helm the sequel, but heres my own wish list regardless:

  • More exploration of Yggdrasil
  • A real love triangle between Sif, Jane and Thor
  • Bulder
  • A bigger part for Freya
  • Surter the Fire Demon

and absolutely NO Beta Ray Bill
Theres sex and death and human grime in monochrome for one thin dime and at least the trains all run on time but they dont go anywhere.
Thor didn't listen to Loki? He seemed to listen to him fine when Loki was manipulating him into going into Jotunheim. He even listened to Loki when he wanted the group to leave Jotunheim before the fight, the only reason he changed his mind was the Frost Giant insulting him.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has stated that "while the relationship between Loki and Thor certainly has changed [after the events of the movie The Avengers] and has progressed, a lot of 'Thor 2' is picking up where it left off in terms of Jane, who you just saw for a moment on a computer monitor, and also whatís been going on in the nine realms without the Asgardians being able to use the Bifrost."

Am I the only one that's kind of annoyed by this? I'd really like some more focus on Thor, Loki, Odin and Frigga. Jane is cool, but I find the family in Asgard to be much more interesting.

I'd also like to know a bit about Asgard's normal citizens; they sort of disappeared entirely after Thor's (almost)coronation. What do they do all day, where do they go and what do they talk about? What is life in Asgard really like?

Maybe I'm overreacting, but I feel like they're ignoring things that would make the series so much better.

Earth is very important to Thor. It's very important to Thor's character and his development. It's a place he calls home just as much as Asgard. Ergo, Earth is important to the film franchise.

Likewise Jane. Jane is very important to Thor. She's very important to Thor's character. She's one of the things that ties him to Earth, which, again, he calls home. Ergo, Jane is important to the film franchise, possibly moreso than Earth itself.

So no, I'm not annoyed that they're following the plot in reasonable ways in the sequel and not ignoring important plot points that ought to be addressed. And I'm fully confident that they can focus on Asgard and Earth (as well as the third planet where the villain comes from) this time, now that they don't have the origin to worry about.

I understand that Jane and Earth are important, but there was a lot happening in Asgard that needs to be addressed. I'm kind of hoping that Jane will be able to make a new "bridge" between Earth and Asgard, seeing as she was working on that at the end of Thor.

I imagine that the universe of Thor is a tricky thing to adapt to film because there are so many characters, places and cultures that are a part of the story. It's because of that that I also think they might have too much on their plate. Earth and Humans, Asgard and Asgardians, Jotunheim and the Frost Giants, Thanos, and now they're apparently adding Svartalfheim and the Elves. They have to deal with the conflicts between all of these people and make these places feel real within a short amount of time. That's a lot to handle and I'm just not sure they can do it.

The plot doesn't necessarily have to go to Jotunheim to deal with the Jotuns.

So is it worth watching this and the rest of the MCU in an archive binge? I have only seen bits of the first Iron Man and none of the rest.

Speaking as someone who has done exactly that, yes. It is worth it.

[up][up]I would definitely recommend watching this, especially in a binge of the MCU. Hell, I'd recommend watching this separately because it's that awesome of a movie.
I would recommend watching *all* of them, except for Incredible Hulk. That, you can take or leave.

I recommend watching the Incredible Hulk as well. I loved that movie.
I actually liked The Incredible Hulk better than the Thor or Cap or Iron Man 2 movies.

If the Avengers has gotten you interested in the previous films, sure, Thor is worth watching. It's bad if you watch it as a drama, a little boring if you watch it as a action movie, but great fun if you watch is as a comedy. Not in the So Bad, It's Good sense - it's just nigh-impossible to take seriously, so it's best not to try. The funny parts of it are the best ones.

Time to get Iron Man cheap on blu-ray or dvd then. Can't be bothered watching the television version, as the company that bought it over here has the temerity to fill the running time with more adverts than a plague rat has fleas.
I still cannot understand the attraction to TIH. The only thing it really has going for it is a better super vs super final battle, which is not saying a whole lot, since the finale of the Ang Lee Hulk was awful. Otherwise, its a cliched "on the run from the evil military" plot with extremely little wit and charisma from the cast.

Norton's a fine actor, there's an interesting gradual devolution of the villain, and the movie does a good job of showing how rough Bruce's life is due to the Hulk. The parts of the movie that happen before he gets back to the US are actually my favourites.

Basically, it did a good job of making me actually care about Bruce Banner (and about Elizabeth Ross as well), whereas I've never cared about Tony Stark, and Thor felt ridiculous every time it tried to be dramatic.

There's a lot of pics out of the actors filming Thor 2, and we've also got the plot of the film revealed. What does everyone think so far?

I'm really liking Thor's new look and the elves are pretty interesting.

It's looking pretty good so far.

Christopher Eccleston's Malekith looks interesting but I'll wait til we get some official photos.

I found a major spoiler that's come up on a few sites. I really want to talk about it and I was going to post it here with spoiler tags, but I know some people (like me) have their spoiler tag thing kept off at all times. I don't want to be that person that ends up ruining stuff for everyone. I guess I could stick it in a hot tip, but if I did *

So I'm just gonna put a link to it:

The site I linked to actually has the biggest spoiler hidden and you have to high lite the area to see it.

[down]I agree, and...other than that I don't know what to say without giving something away or being vague to the point of not making sense. Would it be okay to make a thread called "Thor: The Dark World (spoilers!)"?

Yeah I came across that spoiler, I'm a Spoiler Hound It's in my nature (most of the time).

It's a good plot development and could mean a lot of things if treated right, which I think it will.

^^ If people have spoilers turned off, they've made a conscious decision to have story elements spoiled. Go ahead and post with spoiler tags if you want, those who show spoilers will just have to live with the choice they made.

[up]Okay, awesome.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Frigga is an important character and her dying will have a huge impact on Odin, Thor and especially Loki. But we didn't see her very much in Thor, and I thought what we did see of her was good. It strikes me as a bit early to be killing her off. But I definitely think it could work if it's handled well.
