Sure. I agree.
I was just replying to Elizah's question about whether or not Thor would need to fight Kurse/Malekith on a separate battlefield somewhere where innocent bystanders wouldn't get hurt. I think that in Thor 2, just as in Avengers and Thor 1, he'll fight the bad guys wherever he has to, and just hope that the collateral damage stays to a bare minimum.
