But each loves the other's world as much as his own--Thor longs for the euphoric bliss of a fleeting, mortal life where every second counts, while Blake is in awe of the cosmic and fantastical things Thor considers commonplace.
I don't disagree with you, but it looks like the movies have already negated the possibility of following that path.
And I also agree with "the less Ultimates influence the better", but so far, the amount of Ultimates influence in the movies has felt... bearable. It kind of seems like even when they incorporate something that is similar to the Ultimates version, they adapt it so that doesn't feel
quite so Ultimates-y.
I'm just trying to read the tea-leaves a bit, and probably the guess is way off. But it would seem weird, to me, if the movieverse left out Balder entirely. If it's going to include him, though, his complete absence (even in reference) in the first Thor movie would have to be explained somehow. So I'm just wondering whether "Jane Foster's ex, Dr. Donald Blake" will turn out to be more than just an Easter Egg reference for the fans to chuckle at.
