    What about the Enchantress? I heard her role being bandied about for the actress who was eventually confirmed as Sif. (And, yes, she may just be a random human female so that Portman has someone to play off on.)

    Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

    Hair colour isn't necessarily determinative, but Amora is a blonde, and Hollywood isn't exactly short on them, so I'd be surprised. I suggested Karnilla since she's got black hair.

    That said, I think the suggestion that she's just a gal pal for Jane is most likely.

    Some spoiler-ific stuff here but it's in inviso-text. I couldn't resist and had a peek. I wouldn't consider most of it major spoilers but there is at least one that people might want to avoid. There's also some stuff about the Avengers movie.

    I wonder if his role was the one meant for Zachary Levi, who had to turn it down after NBC ordered six more episodes of Chuck.

    Given his stature (even with his maxi-lift shoes), I'd suggest Ant Man would be more his niche...unless Tom Cruise gets it first.

    That's what I'm talking 'bout...it's mythology on a grand scale!

    Stan Lee confirms his cameo via a few Tweets.
    So what type cameo would make for an interesting Thor cameo?
    X-Men: A hot dog purchaser on the beach
    Spiderman: Saves a little girl, advice to Spidey
    Daredevil: Passerby that Matt stops from crossing against the signal
    Fantastic Four: an actual character, Willie Lumpkin the mailman
    Iron Man: A Hugh Hefner-esque individual on red carpet.
    Hulk(s): security guard with Lou Ferrigno, juice drinker that pinpoints gamma tainted beverage where Bruce is.


    Could he be a patient at the hospital assuming we get into Donald Blake?

    :rolleyes:

    How many cameos will be enough for Stan? Is he trying to catch up with Alfred Hitchcock?

    ^ Why does it bother you? They hardly overshadow the movies, do they? I mean, he is the man most associated with Marvel comics. It's become a bit of a trademark for the movies.

    I like the goofy Stan Lee cameos.

    Actually I thought that was quite clever on Mark Millar's part. He actually really was Thor, just as he claimed. The whole crazy guy with weather tech was created by Loki messing with reality. Before that he was very undecided about if he really was Thor or if he was just nuts. I liked the uncertainty. It made the character more mysterious.

    But yeah the Eco-Nut aspect was stupid and insane and done solely so Millar could preach to the choir. It's little wonder that Thor was the only truly moral hero in the entire book.

    In the Ultimate universe, Spider-Man was the only one who had the right to call himself a hero.

    Well since for some bizarre reason Stan is not a multi-millionaire that is one of the least things they can do for him to recognize none of it would exist without him.

    So this is now about recognizing Stan Lee for his achievements, as opposed to using him as a living sight gag in the Marvel films? I could have sworn it was the latter.

    Do we know who's going to play all the Stan Lees in the "Ultimate Stan Lee Cameo Universe" movie? :)

    Ultimate Thor was pretty heroic.

    As to Lee's cameos (which I enjoy; there's a certain comfortable amiability to it), perhaps he could be the first man who sees Thor when he arrives on Earth.

    Incidentally, I do hope that Joe Simon lives long enough to put in some kind of cameo in Captain America. It'd be really cruel for him to die only a couple of months before filming.
