I've been tested as having significantly above average long-term memory.
Most people don't remember tertiary characters from movies they saw two years ago and were not emotionally engaged in. It's actually known that most of what people learn they don't remember the next day. Part of the sleeping process is to forget irrelevant details.
If I asked you a minor detail about a movie from 2011 that you didn't like you probably wouldn't remember. As an example, I don't remember the name of Selina Kyle's roommate from TDKR, the name of Rogers' brother from Captain America, etc.
How many times had you seen Thor and TA prior to seeing this movie, and how recently?
