Re: THOR-starts shooting Jan2010: Updates, Rumors & Casting till relea I get the theory, but I really do think people may be overthinking this. I'm not sure movie audiences really worry about the philosophical underpinnings of comic book movies. Look at FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLFMAN back in the forties. As far as I know, audiences didn't suffer any cognitive dissonance just because the Frankenstein monster, a product of warped science, was bumping heads with a supernatural were-creature. And, more recently, SMALLVILLE mixes magic and comic book "science" all the time. Nobody seems to mind. . . . Likewise, THE X-FILES tended to mix science fiction and supernatural horror as well. An episode about UFOs would be followed by one about a voodoo curse. The ratings never suffered.
