If Thor 2 gets into the 90's it's because it's a universally praised movie that deserves a high ranking. If a movie is divisive or complete crap then the score will reflect that.
What fanboys as a group thinks isn't very relevant either. What is relevant is what you think yourself. My point is that some people get far too upset about that the average opinion of a group doesn't reflect their own.

Most movies I like are rated fresh, but just because it agrees with me doesn't mean that I lay more importance to the method.

As for Thor, I just don't feel that that's the kind of concept that is likely to get a really high score, even if it's very well executed. Things like Rotten Tomatoes is affected not only by execution but of choice of genre and themes. I don't think all will be on board with the kind of mix that Thor brings.
