I wouldn't see Ego in the literal comic book sense, of some planet with a genuine big-ass face on it shouting taunts at Thor; but I don't think audiences would have any trouble buying into the idea of an actual sentient planet. It's become a fairly commonplace theme in SF, most recently in Avatar. Just think of Pandora without the hippie feel-good vibe, and instead a murdering malevolence for a persona. Bam. There ya go.
I try not to debate over hypothetical nowdays, so just wait until more info about Thor 2 is released and you'll see.
CAPTAIN AMERICA, THOR, IRON MAN, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, BLACK WIDOW, AND HAWKEYE
Spider-Man - It's the end of the world, I'M FREAKING OUT...why aren't you freaking out?
Captain America - Because I can hear it.
Spider-Man - Hear what?
Captain America - ....thunder *cue Thor's grand entrance*
