** A [[TropesAreNotBad positive]] example; the trailers for the film were regarded by many as somewhat underwhelming, but the scale and acting and dialogue have turned out to be closer to the comics than many feared. [[spoiler:Also, some of the trailers imply that the line "You can't kill an entire race" refers to humanity. This isn't the case, as the Frost Giants and Jötunheim end up as Loki's target.]] In particular, except for a few brief shots, very little of the first act appears in the trailer. It is a good ''half an hour'' before Thor even reaches Earth.

* ShowingUpChauvinists: It's [[NoodleIncident implied]] that Lady Sif had to pull one in order to be taken seriously as a warrior.
-->'''Thor:''' And who proved wrong all who scoffed at the idea that a young maiden could be one of the fiercest warriors this realm has ever known?\\
'''Sif:''' ''I'' did.\\
({{Beat}})\\
'''Thor:''' ...True, but I supported you!

Added DiffLines:

* OminousCube: Whoever holds The Casket of Ancient Winters instantly becomes AnIcePerson. The Casket also has the ability to plunge a planet into a new ice age.


* GrayEyes: Loki's eyes might be light enough in some scenes to qualify for a Type 2 ("A cold, strong-willed, and unapproachable character often with an 'ideas above people' mentality").


* ThighHighBoots: Sif wears knee-length ones as part of her combat outfit.


* ContrivedCoincidence: One that affects the entire Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. Of the millions of civilized planets avaiable, Odin chose to send Thor to [[EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Earth]]. Without Thor as a catalyst and founding member, [[ForWantOfANail the Avengers would either not exist or be unwary against]] [[Film/TheAvengers2012 extraterrestrial attacks]], [[spoiler:leaving the universe mostly helpless against Thanos's actions]] in ''[[Film/AvengersInfinityWar Infinity War]]'' and ''[[Film/AvengersEndgame Endgame]]''.

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: While still a villain, Laufey is far from the sadistic brute that he was depicted in the comics. When reuniting with Loki in the comics, Laufey expresses nothing but open distaste for his son and doesn't hesitate in trying to kill him. In the original script of the film, Loki told Laufey who he was and Laufey also replied "Ah, the bastard son. I thought Odin had killed you. That's what I would have done. He's as weak as you are." This scene was never filmed.

* EngineeredHeroics: Loki's plan toward the end is to [[spoiler:allow Laufey to get close the sleeping Odin and then kill him to look like a hero in front of his father.]]


** Loki, when he appears on Earth. Strangely, nobody else even seems to notice him, so maybe he's throwing in a "[[PerceptionFilter you can't see me" glamour]] on top of his "look like a local" spell. He also owns a very snazzy suit of armor on Asgard.[[invoked]] WordOfGod mentioned that Loki is quite concerned about appearances; whereas Thor only had one suit of armor, Loki's got three variations. [[invoked]]
