When I wrote my review for Thor on this site, I wrote something to the effect, that, "this is the film Fantastic Four should have been and wasn't," referring to all the Jack Kirby inspired sets on the film, where Fantastic Four looked bland and un original, nothing like what Jack Kirby drew for the FF.
Yeah, sort of worried about this after thinking about it. Apparently they're shooting one of the locations for Asgard in Iceland, so right off the bat you know it won't look as fantastical as Thor. I really wish they would get over this "real, grounded" crap because that's not how these stories or characters were designed to be in the first place. The whole draw of superheroes is that they are fantastical. When you're talking about Thor, a norse god, there's no point in trying to make him grounded, you just can't.
