I just have to give props to Tom for actually jetting to San Diego for that while in the midst of playing the grueling lead role in Coriolanus on stage.

Besides, any and all fan questions would have been directed towards Tom from annoying Loki fangirls (I still hate how they hijacked the 2011 NYCC panel for Avengers), so maybe it was for the best that they didn't have a panel. Though I guess the Cap and GOTG panels didn't take any fan questions, right?

Then maybe you should have showed up and asked questions. If more Loki fangirls show up than other fans, naturally they would have more questions to ask.

As for the panel, they did the best they could without having all of the main cast there. TH nailed it and got people talking, that's the whole point.

I did show up. I spent 4 hours in line first thing in the morning and the whole day sitting through every panel in the IGN theater just so I could be at that last panel, but the fangirls bum rushed the aisles at the very beginning of the panel, so I couldn't ask a question.

I'm fine with what they did and really enjoyed TH, so I'm not complaining that at all. Just bringing up the alternative which would have also been enjoyable.

Yeah I thought they needed to do SOMETHING more than Tom's intro as well.

Seahammer over on the Immortal Thor boards found and translated this

caption on right page:
Svartalfheim, the genesis of ether.

"ether" came out as AETHER in the translation, but i think that's what it's supposed to be. I made a few other assumptions and educated guesses to stretch the actual runes into anglicized meaning!
I come up with the same thing he does

Hey, that's me! Thanks for getting my account straightened out, Vartha! I'm not much of a poster, but I've lurked on these boards every day for about a decade, so it's nice to finally join the conversation.

Anyway, the Marvel site calls it "The Book of Yggdrasil," which is cool in and of itself. It looks like the elves in the picture have some sort of black smokey magic coming from their hands, which I assume is the "ether/aether."

And as some others have said, I would love it if this is all building to Surtur, maybe for Thor 3 (Thor: The Surtur Saga, anyone?)

Hmmm... Any thoughts on what that all could refer to? I'm going through my mental files on Thor enemies that are associated with Darkness. I remember Surtur forging Twilight in darkness. DOOM, DOOM, DOOM ect. But maybe I am remembering it wrong. Any other cosmic Marvel entities that are know for darkness and could reasonably be used here?

Well, there's the Dark Dimension, ruled by Dormammu; which certainly could be a setup for the Doc Strange movie. Plus, Dormammu and Surtur share enough similarities in appearance that it *could* be that the MCU wants to create an amalgamation of the two.

And Chthon ("The Other") could still be a part of all this, and if so, his presence could point towards Mt. Wundagore and the Maximoffs in Avengers 2 (plus, "The Other" has already appeared in Avengers 1, although there's never been any confirmation that Denisof's character *is* the comic-book "Other" --- i.e., Chthon).

The Ether definitely sounds like comic-book darkforce:

Yeah I hope if Surtur DOES make and appearance in any form it's not the main story. I was kind of hoping for that to be saved for Thor 3

Can't really think of any off hand.
Surtur's all I can think of other than Fenris.

Starlin's Death? Hmm... A weapon built to spread "the dark". Is that that giant structure we see smashing through buildings in the teaser?

na, I'm trying to think of the demons' name that attacked Beta Ray Bill's home world, but THIS was on BRB's wiki


Note the first sentence SKARTHEIM
Quote:
On discovering that Bill was worthy enough to lift Mjolnir, Odin proposes a battle to the death in the fiery Asgardian realm of Skartheim to decide who will wield the hammer. Bill and Thor render each other unconscious. Bill's resistance to heat allows him to recover first, however, and he is deemed the winner--but he also saves Thor from going over a lava flow, believing he is too worthy an opponent to die. He tells Thor he saved him as he did not want so worthy an opponent to die, but he feels he needs the hammer to protect his people. After Bill reconsiders his claim to the hammer, Odin creates a compromise by bestowing upon Bill a different hammer — Stormbreaker — which is equal in power to Mjolnir and was created by the same Dwarf. Odin also bestows the ability upon Bill to return to his original Korbinite form by striking Stormbreaker upon the ground. After learning that the mishap that killed most of Bill's people was caused by the fire demon Surtur, one of Asgard's most powerful enemies, Bill agrees to join the Asgardians in a war to stop Surtur and his armies.[3][4]
Bill leads many of Earth's heroes against Surtur's forces on Earth while Thor, Odin, and Thor's adopted brother Loki confront Surtur in Asgard. Surtur is eventually defeated, but apparently kills Odin when they both fall through a mystic portal.[5] Bill remains on Earth, aiding the spaceknight Rom against the threat of the alien Dire Wraiths [6] and foes such as Iron Man opponent Titanium Man.[7]
Forming an attachment with the Asgardian goddess Sif,[8] Bill aids Thor against the Dark Elf Kurse in a two-part storyline[9] before returning to his people. Bill eventually returns to battle the Egyptian god Seth [10] and the Juggernaut.[11]

I hope Marvel takes a page from Weta Studios and releases the page[s] in high quality prints. I'd put that up on my wall alongside my map of Wilderland.

The Comic-Con footage for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 already leaked, why can't we have Thor - The Dark World footage too.

Does anyone else think that Surtur will have a heavy, heavy presence in this movie?

As a Thor fan, for me, that's the best it gets. In terms of individual film villains, we've had the ironmonger, that mutt in Iron man 2, Loki, Abomination, The Red Skull....and possibly Surtur as part of the thor sequel. Talk about raising the bar. I think this is going to be the movie that really sets Thor apart from the rest of the heroes.

Idris Elba confirmed while promoting Pacific Rim that he, too, is taking part in the reshoots.
