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.

While I agree with you that the "grounded in reality" trend is nonsense when talking about Thor, the Iceland locations are quite fantastical looking. They won't have any problem integrating those sites with their Norse gods an mythical demons.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
