Why would you set a Thor movie entirely on Earth? Is it not more fun to see Thor fighting mythical beasts and be in fantastical realms? Setting a Thor movie entirely on Earth seems like a step back at this point. Radioactive Man wouldn't work as a Big bad in a film, he was mainly a minion in the Masters of Evil story lines he appeared in, so what role would he play in a Thor movie. It seems like all he would do was provide a fight scene in a Thor movie, rather being a character that advances the plot. He isn't the Big Bad in the Iron Man 3 movie, but considering it is set in China, Radioactive Man seems more like a natural fit in Iron Man 3 then the next Thor movie where Thor will fight Dark Elves.
Not all villains can carry every type of movie, I think Mr. Hyde would work way better in a Daredevil movie then in a Thor movie.
