He also could have simply handed over the reigns to Thor just as he was going to in Thor 1. I think it would be giving away too much in the trailer to have this mean that Odin is dead (and I think this is an indicator that that speech may be early in the film, but doesn't necessarily mean that Odin is dead)
Yeah, you could well be right. We had been talking earlier along the lines of, "what more does Thor have to do to show he is now ready to assume the throne?" And Odin knows he is weakening.
But what a tough way to start off one's reign, with all these troubles underway!
And it has a different implication for a showdown with Malekith on Earth.
So maybe a coronation, if there is one, is later in the film.
