That's just your opinion. I loved the train scene. Not only was it hysterical, it showcased a limit to Thor's power set. How exactly is he getting back into the fray at this point? Thor is so powerful you need ways to challenge and frustrate him.
Who was making jokes? The humor was all situational.
As far as the stakes, we've all seen the end of the world/universe/whatever plot device so often that why not have fun with it? Did anyone think Thor was not going to win? At no point in the Dark Knight did I think Batman was not going to beat the Joker. Yes lives would be lost etc. but I just saw Superman kill thousands of people last summer so I'm happy if Thor saves the universe with aplomb.
