You can't do that with Thor really, showing how big an event TA for the characters was, because out of all Avengers, the alien invasion wasn't a big game changer for him. For Selvig it was. Thor has to deal with his brother and what Loki did, but for Selvig it was a bit more. Being possesed by a god should be adressed.

Selvig has no use in this film other than some scientific McGuffin at the end.
