Were there not any other fantastical beasts that live on Asgard? Would be nice to see some running/flying around, even if just in the corner of the screen as they pan over the city proper... Or is this version just too techno (or at least, distancing itself from true magic) for them to throw in some myth-like creatures.
I'm not clued up on myths, but it'd be awesome (to me) for Thor to have a griffin as a pet - Take that, Ozy, mine's bigger/more dangerous/cooler than yours
Not really in
Asgard. Asgard was the city of the Aesir. The other races and mythical beasts and such had their own realms/cities. That's why they've got the Nine Worlds.
That said, Volstagg just revealed in the Iron Man/Thor
comic that he has a pet dragon, so it's not unprecedented.
