All I am saying is that they would have to come up with a hell of an explanation for why in Thor 1 Thor is "First born" and then in Thor 2 this guy shows up.
I just find it hard to accept that Odin would not know he has an older son, perhaps he was completely disowned, and so Odin no longer calling him his "first born" but I feel like that's really a bit of a stretch. Although Odin did seem rather choked up up when he delivers that line "My first born"... hm.
Interestingly the actor is only 8 years younger than Anthony. Not that it matters that much in the context of these films, where the characters live so long, just pointing it out...
Anywho, still feel like another troublesome brother for Thor is a bit overkill for the films at this point. JMO
