Re: Thor 2 Dark World news, speculation and pictures possible Spoilers - Part
They don't really need to tackle Thor as king in the movies at all, to be honest. It worked well in the comics, but that was because we had 40 years of Odin as king before that. Personally, I'd really love to see at least one of the many, many stories where Odin manipulates Thor for what he believes is Thor's own good adapted to the movies first. Maybe the one where Odin disowns Thor and recruits a mortal to take his place, knowing that Ragnarok was coming and "Thor" was destined to die in it.
