The writers seem to have forgotten (or willfully neglected) Thor's ability to use Mjolnir to create portals/wormholes through which he can teleport himself and others. Recently I've been rereading old issues of Thor and The Avengers, and it was notable that Thor created vortexes to travel across the world and through dimensions quite often back then. That's a very unique and valuable ability that should be exploited in the films.
Its more that they deliberately excised that ability for plot reasons. I think they did the right thing. *However*, I don't think it'd be a horrible decision to have Thor learn, in Thor 2, how to use Mjolnir as a "beacon" for whatever new transport system Asgard builds ( probably with the Tesseract at its core ), effectively gaining a new ability to open mini-wormholes.
