Sif is his wife I believe. The Enchantress is a fallen Asgardian femme fatale of the Poison Ivy variety. She usually commits dastardly deeds just to get his attention. He's usually banging her when Sif is out of the picture. Thor's penis is too powerful to be contained by a single woman.
The Marvel Comic's version of Thor never married Sif though.

Right, I think she's only his wife in the Elder Edda and so forth.

Looks the part, that is all anyone can really ask. If he works out he will be just fine. I would say he is more He-Man than Thor, but I like that look for Thor.

Triple H, oh no. thought he was suppose to be King Conan

I'd rather Marvel not cast Biel. She is a modest actress with exceptional beauty but I don't see her as either Sif or Enchantress. I could go with Portman as Sif I suppose. I'd rather have a less busty actress but one that can actually, you know, act.

In that case I'd much rather have Jessica Biel than Natalie Portman.

Could you expand on your point please?
You'd rather have mediocre acting but eye candy as Sif or Enchantress instead of just good performers in the role.
The casting rumor of Biel is odd since the director, Branagh, seems to be going after really good actors for these roles.

I think he's saying that he thinks Biel is a better actress than Portman.

Yes.

Plus I think she's better looking.

Okay. Your opinion is your own and I can already tell it'd be a waste of keystrokes to go back and forth with you.
I'll only say this. Let me know when she has won or been considered for awards honoring her for her acting. Portman has, a few times. Meaning that by and large Portman=good actress 1st, Biel=Eye Candy 1st and I'd contend that a large majority see it that way. She, Biel, is hotter no contest there. Likewise Portman is just the overall better acttress

So, we still don't know why no Sif.

Presumably because they think Amora would be more interesting.

Well, Amora/the Enchantress definitely has the cooler name.

Maybe they aren't going with Sif because that name sounds like "The Syph" which obviously is a slang term for syphilis.

I could actually believe that.
Last year when the Transformers Animated toys came out the Triceratops whose name had always been SLAG was changed. Apparently its also slang frequently used in the UK/EU for someting unsavorly(which I forget right now). I thought that was stupid but my European bretheren on the TF board I'm on thought the name change appropriate. But really do 8-12yr olds really know the bad slang for SLAG?

Likewise will that many really think Sif=Syphilis?
But I'd believe that as a plausible reason given the overly PC nature of our new world order.
