If I so much as hear the word rushed, lack of development, cramped or anything of that nature then it becomes a rental. I'm already getting a bit burnt out on Marvel and their seemingly cookie cutter formula, but Thor is the one character I really really like and i want to continue to see the character given top quality treatment so Marvel dicking with the character to meet a maximum profit runtime isn't the way to win me over.
With you here. Especially in a film that has so much too explore and work with. Thor, Loki, Odin, Jane, Sif, the Warriors Three, Frigga, Heimdall, Malekith, and Kurse. We are promised a battle across the realms.
That doesn't sound short to me.
