And as I’ve said it before many times, I really felt like Marvel was putting a leash in terms of the casualty levels shown in the film.

They could imply it with montages of news reports, but ultimately, you never really saw people dying or even being dead from the invasion, which really lessened the tension and the stakes for me during the final battle.

Too many people got the better hand in a confrontation with Loki in this film, which didn’t help him in my honest opinion. It seems like he was only presented in being superior to human beings, regardless if they had been infused with the super soldier formula.

And I really thought that the whole Hellcarrier raid sequences were tamed; no intensity present in that sequence period.
I agree they could have shown more of Thor doing his thing. Just curious, do you think he came off more powerful in Avengers or his solo film?
