I wouldn't say that the Earth stuff in Thor touched on Thor's earthly continuity in a big way. There was only Jane and cheeky references to Donald. Its not like we saw the Gaia aspect, any of his Earthly villains or him setting up life there long term. Two of the leads on Midgard had to be original creations! There was no part of the Thor movie that says he loves Earth and wants to stay there. For me, that is such a huge part of Thor's character and it provides the back bone to his tension with Odin that to swan off to the elves and dwarves before that is set up is a bit crap. Its not good Thor. I get that people want the visual spectacle of the other realms but I care more about the character integrity.
We can debate how what we would think is more important all day, but the fact of the matter is Marvel IS going to expand on the 9 realms there are no "if", "ands", or "buts" about it.

Yes Thor's connection to earth is part of his character, but three films is just not enough time to explore the 9 realms and have Thor be an earth superhero they have to pick what's best for the franchise.

With Alan Taylor as the helmer, I expect a manlier and more adult movie than Kenneth's Thor.

Same here, I think the maturity level of "THOR" was just fine but it can definately be taken up a notch in THOR II.

But we aren't talking about setting the entire franchise on Earth. I think there should be one proper Earth Thor movie with Loki teaming up with someone like the Absorbing Man or something. A proper Lee/Kirby Journey into Mystery story, that is just where I think Thor was best personally. I realise that we probably aren't getting that though. All that taken into account I don't think that under any circumstances should they reduce Jane's role if we are going to going off to a fantasy world, something of Earth has to remain and I don't think it would be that hard to give her a role in 2 stories to fill out the Thor trilogy franchise.

Well gee thanks, the female populace salutes you. I'm sure Kenneth and the entirely male writing staff are not pleased at you insulting their standards of masculinity. I don't see what was unmanly about it. From what I could see of Thor when he was half naked he seemed very manly

Also, more adult? Its going to be PG-13 and I hope its still humourous.

So, the landscape of Asgard will have more details like greenery and fjords I hear? Slartibartfast would be elated to hear that.

Comments from Hemsworth. Got this from a certain website that shall not be named.

Quote:
Talking to The York Press about Thor 2 and becoming a parent along with his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, Hemsworth shared the following---

"I'm incredibly excited about fatherhood. I am excited about Thor 2 too, but I think the biggest challenge will be fatherhood," he said.

The Avengers may have been steered by Joss Whedon and Robert Downey Jr. but for the sequel to Thor, Hemsworth has a little more say.

Said Hemsworth, ""I haven't got a script yet for Thor 2. I do get input into the script to a degree."

In regards to Marvel finally settling on Alan Taylor as director for the Thor sequel, apparently the mythical aspect and realism of Game of Thrones sealed the deal for Taylor.

"Alan Taylor, one of the directors and creators of Game Of Thrones, is directing it. What I love about that series is the mythical element to it, but that world that they lived in was entirely tangible and organic. It was all real locations, not green screen. I think Thor and Asgard could use that. That would be a huge plus, to not have worlds that are too clinical and ethereal, and have places that look like they have existed for thousands of years. I think this would be more locations and less green screen."

In his praise of Game of Thrones and Alan Taylor, Hemsworth has perhaps given us a hint as to what we can expect in the Thor sequel?

You can next see Hemswort as Thor Odinson in Marvel's The Avengers, debuting in US theaters May 4th.

Curious, but for those who are well versed with Thor's mythology, aside from Loki, who's regarded in the comic books as Thor's next biggest/popular enemy? Surtur? Malekeith? Enchantress?

One thing that I also liked is that, and for the life of me I can't remember where the article is that I read this from, but Chris or Tom mentioned on how the events of the Avengers won't supposedly go unnoticed by the Asgaridan community. It's definitely exciting to wonder on what kind of reactions and responses Thor will get from the Asgardian cast on his actions on Earth.

Also, count me on the bandwagon that hopes that Thor 2 will feature Thor having to go on a adventure throughout the 9 Realms that deals with him having to solve a mystery or something like that.

Thor's most popular enemy is probably Surtur, but he's too big of a threat for the 2nd film so it would be best if he's saved for THOR III.

Do you see any possibility of the franchise going about their villain selection in the manner that Nolan has where he used Batman's most well known enemy Joker in the second film before using Bane, who's probably lesser in extent when it comes to general awareness as the Joker has, in the third film?

Nah I think they're gonna save Surtur for THOR III, so right now I'm hoping to see Amora & Skurge working alongside another "big villain" in this film.

I don't think so either. I don't know this as fact, but I'm sure if Ledger didn't pass on, Joker would have been involved in the third film as well. At least, that is what I think.

Who would you have voice Surtur BT?

I did, though, I don't watch Dexter. Last time I saw Stevenson on screen was when I watched "Kill the Irishman"

I have a no clue, most likely someone with a low gravely voice but I can't think of anyone in particular at the moment.

Dexter is one of the best-written shows on TV (right up there with Mad Men) and Michael C. Hall is incredible. You should give that series a shot.

Lol, so I have heard. With all the different things I watch, some things are due to get lost in the shuffle. I will check it out one of these days.

I just thought of this, oddly enough while watching Chris Hemsworth's red carpet interview for the UK Avengers premiere, but what would you guys think if Tom Hiddleston, who has expressed the desire to direct, directed a Thor sequel?

So this series is going to be held to a trilogy? That just seems... wrong. One of the few series you would think would have plenty of room for at least 4 or 5 films.
