But anyway, I just feel like they're going to change this in the films making all the realms actual separate planets, possibly making Nornheim one of them as well. And maybe removing Hel since it can't really be a planet.
FWIW, I checked the Marvel website when I compiled the list of the realms that Thor doesn't mention (and played the clip to transcribe the ones he does.)
It may be that at some point in writing the books, they were casual about what names were realms and what names were provinces. It's now mostly (though not completely) aligned with myth.

FWIW, the on-line script reads "Nornheim". It kind of sounds that way in the clip, too.
So how many realms do we think we will see Kurse in?
