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.
I don't think Thor in Avengers is like that. That might work for Hulk or anti-heros in general. Thor's a straighter hero and 2nd only to Cap in nobility on this team. Now that the Avengers intro is out the way and the next threat is not personal to him I'd rather he had more screentime and was a part of the core leaving others to take the wild card role.
