More screentime doesn't mean better or more important characters. Thor is the sort of character that I think can be done with a little more than a lot like Wolverine and The Joker.
If you have Wolverine there all the time, constantly talking, everyone gets sick of him. It's when he just snarls something anti social or gives someone the chills, that's when he's at his best. Thor is similar.
