I hate to admit it, but I'm actually kinda hoping for a Sif-Thor-Jane triangle in Thor 2.
This is something that should explore. It seems as noted they were alluding to that with the Sif/Frigga conversation at the end of the film.

As for Thor "visiting other worlds" that sounds vague. They could go anywhere with that.

I want a Natalie-Kat-Jaime one. Thor can f*ck off to Valhalla with his hammer.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

I didn't have any issues with Sif's lines... I DID have an issue with Jaime Alexander's very bad accent. If she comes back, I hope they hire a good dialect coach...

As for Thor's age, etc.... I've seen a couple fanfics use the idea that there is more than one Ragnarok, and that Asgard and its inhabitants go through cycles of creation and destruction. So while there may be an innate overall memory of being around for a thousand-plus years, perhaps with every cycle, Thor and the like start out relatively "new" and must relearn and regain maturity.

I don't think there are any dialect coaches out there who specialize in Asgardian accents.

^That's actually part of the original mythology too. And I thought the whole cycle of Ragnaroks thing was used in the comics.

I got the movie on ITunes today, along with X-Men: First Class and I loved it just as much the second time as I did the first. Although I was a little dissapointed in the Avengers featurette which was included as a ITunes Extra. I was hoping for some new info, but all it really was was just a couple quick quotes from Joss Whedon and a couple other people, and then the cast intros from Comic Con. It didn't say or show anything very informative. This was actually the first I've come across ITunes Extras, which are DVD extras now included with ITunes movies.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

@CaptainCraig...of course Thor visiting other worlds sounds vague, they're still working on the script and don't want to give anything away yet. This of course could change after they get a director.

Patty Jenkins talks about possibly directing "Thor 2". I like her already if indeed she becomes the choice.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

I went to see Kenneth Branagh in the opening night of a play last Friday (he was brilliant incidentally). We left after the show, but apparently he and the cast came out and mingled with the audience in the bar afterwards. I'd have liked to ask him why he didn't return for Thor 2. But I agree that the apparent choice of Patty Jenkins is another pleasingly left-field one.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

Great movie, i saw it 3 times in theaters and the best of the Marvel films this year.

Did anyone felt it was like a retro style throwback to the 80's fantasy epics like Willow, Krull, Clash of the Titans, Conan movies, Fire and Ice etc.? i think that is what they were aiming at.

A for me.

^ People in thread have brought up that it reminded them visually of "Masters of the Universe" I'm sure those other examples have been brought up as well.

Re: THOR: Grading, Discussion, Review **SPOILERS***

Johnny Depp's Lone Ranger pushes Thor 2 back, now to open November instea of May '13.
Disney's big-budget "The Lone Ranger" project looks to be a go, but it's coming at a price - a delayed return trip to Asgard.
.....
More pertinent however, it has pushed back its release date five months from next December to May 31st 2013.
Partly as a result of that, and also likely give it more time to get itself together, Marvel's "Thor 2" has been kicked from the same May '13 slot to a mid-Fall bow on November 15th 2013. Disney has also slotted in the "Phineas and Ferb" movie for July 26th 2013.
This could very well be a win-win. With more Thor,Cap and Avengers + more Marvel characters on the launching block for solo films summer was going to get too crowded anyway. Thor should perform well in this Holiday season slot as well, pre-Thanksgiving thru New Years would still allow for lots of long weekends to perform well at the box office.

Lovely. Thor is delayed so that Johnny Depp can play himself once again in a movie that no one was asking for.
