Ironic as there isn't an actual thread to her on this board (other than cynical compare/contrast thread of her and Kat Dennings on everything but acting), which tells me she won't have a big part in this movie.
She has a very big part in this movie. Biggest part aside from Thor himself.

I won't say the TV spot could have been better because I've already seen the trailer and the comic con footage which showed quite a bit. If I had seen neither of those two, then I think the Superbowl spot would have been a tad weak, but for the people I was with today, they seemed to be pretty interested in it.

A few of them that are more jock types said something along the lines of, "when these are based on a comic or cartoon, they're usually pretty good". Now that may be laughable to some, but at least this and Captain America might be appealing to the non fanboys.

So?

What religion prohibits seeing works of art that contain references to other religions? Also, I'd love to see them trying to enforce this on their followers. What would happen if you're caught? Go to prison?

christianity does, or at less some sects of christianity do. remember the stink some churches rose about harry potter because it "promoted witchcraft"? now imagine how some of those people would react to a movie that made a hero out of a non judeo-christian god

There wasn't a whole lot of new footage from the Superbowl spot, but I did like the bit with Thor and Foster in her truck. I think there's pretty good chemistry between Portman and Hemsworth.

Like Wolverine was for Jackman, I hope Thor is that to Hemsworth. I know he has a pretty big following from his soap opera days in Austrailia, but outside the few minutes of screen time in Star Trek, we're pretty unfamiliar with him in the States.

I wouldn't say that. People who don't watch Home and Away (the vast majority) won't know who he is.

It's impossible to judge the cgi based on that spot.

That's not the only religion. It's just that Christians tend to be a bit more vocal about it.

The church I was involved with when I was a kid loved this ****. Luckily, when you grow up and start making decisions for yourself things get back to normal pretty quickly.

My religion believes that any influence of a foreign god can subvert a person, even if it's only in the context of a movie.
This is not just an idea of my religion,.
R.L. Stevenson said:
“…The most influential books, and the truest in their influence, are works of fiction. They do not pin the reader to a dogma, which he must afterwards discover to be inexact; they do not teach him a lesson, which he must afterwards unlearn. They repeat, they rearrange, they clarify the lessons of life; they disengage us from ourselves, they constrain us to the acquaintance of others; and they show us the web of experience, not as we can see it for ourselves, but with a singular change - that monstrous, consuming EGO of ours being, for the once, struck out….”

As a religion it is fear of my God that keeps me in following its tenets.

I'm liking everything I've seen from Hemsworth . They found the right guy for Thor and i liked the little quip at the end. This movie looks awesome. I'll be shocked if it doesn't get people in theaters.

yeah, wouldn't a discussion about a character be just as much an influence as watching a movie about him would be?

What ever happened to free will and people thinking for themselves?

So, basically, you're saying that being influenced by other works (even fiction ones) is bad for you. But, for you to say it's a "bad thing", aren't you alread being influenced by something else?

If you'd really fear your god for watching a movie about a fictional character, why are you even on the Internet? By your logic, the Internet would be the last place that you'd be if your religion doesn't permit influences and subvertions from foreign materials...

Because as long as Thoor's Origin isn't a major theme in the Avengers movie, I can see that movie.
And I wanted too see if we had any new info about Thoor that has implications for Avengers.

It's the fact that The fact that Thor is a "God" is a is major part of the movie.
As their are parts of the internet where ideas against my religion's beliefes are not a major theme, I can go on here.

I meant to say that if the fact that Thor is a "God" is is not a major part of plot of Avengers, then I could watch it. AS it obviously be a major part of the Plot of Thor, I can't watch Thor. It all has too do with the major thrust of the work.
Now please, I've explained as much as I can. Don't ask me anymore.
