With the recent reports of Thor, it sounds like they are going for the more more Twilight heavy demographics. It definitely received a bump in the female viewership from what I've gathered. Infuse that with the prevalent humor and you alienate the audiences looking for a bit more sophistication. Nothing wrong with that, but it's just not my cup of tea.
