Default "You ready for another Bout?"- The Thor/Chris Hemsworth Thread

With all the threads that we have in this forum, I'm surprised that we didn't have one yet dedicated to our favorite Asgardian/God of Thunder.

So folks, with already TWO STRAIGHT YEARS of Thor Goodness having appeared on the Big Screen (now going into THREE STRAIGHT YEARS/A First for a Main Marvel Hero), what are you guys looking forward to the most regarding the Asgardian Prince in his next big journey?

I'd like to see more emphasis on his status as "The God of Thunder" as well as his relationship with Odin and his fame throughout the realms.

Whatever fame he already had prior to the events of "The Avengers" may have been increased if word traveled around about his his heroics on the planet as well.

It's interesting to note on how Thor's journey for a sequel wouldn't deal with the traditional "I want to have a normal life" scenario like most other sequels tend to dive into for a hero's film, so I'm curious as to what his dilemma will be in this film.

I'd also like to see the weight of his title of being Odin's son and Crown Prince of Asgard shown to its fullest as well.

I'm also kind of disappointed that we haven't seen any lightning charged hammer throws yet either.

That along with:

1. Feats of GREAT Strength. I mean it's one thing to see him apply it to his punches and hammer throws, but kind of another to see him use his bare hands to lift something very huge.

2. More wind Based attacks.

3. Better shot flying sequences; I feel like Marvel hasn't taken full advantage of the fact that Thor can fly without needing to use a vehicle or suit of armor.

Definately, crushing IM's armor and catching Hulk's punch was cool but I want to see him do some bonafied "heavy lifting".

Yeah Thor's only used one wind based attack and that was in THOR, I also agree that he's been getting the short stick when it comes to flying scenes.

If it wasn't for "The Avengers", I wouldn't have known on how durable an Asgardian could be since the first film never had the chance to show on how someone like Loki could take bullet fire without any problems or how Thor could take a full blast from Iron Man's lasers to his face and be soaked in fire and still be alright.

I still remember on how people thought that Thor got ALL OF HIS POWERS from the hammer (strength and durability included).lol


I hope before Thor's solo franchise is done, we'll also get a chance to see Thor fight side by side with his father; that would be badass.

I still would've liked to see Thor himself shrug off bullets in TA, since he won't have a chance to do that in his solo film.

Yeah I know people who STILL think all of Thor's powers come from his hammer, including my friends and my older brother.

Yeah that would be awesome, although I would like to see Odin kick ass on his own at some point as well.

I'm also hoping that Malekith will be written in a way that really takes Thor to his limits as a character since up until now, we've only seen Thor really deal with his brother, and there's always limitations as to how far Thor will go to handle the guy. With a new major threat that isn't tied to Thor so personally, it'd be great to see on how Thor reacts to that said villain.

What do you mean by taking Thor to his limits?

I guess in the way that Joker took Batman to his limits as a hero in TDK. Like....Malekith would challenge on what Thor stood for, shake him up to his core.....especially since Malekith, as far as we know, isn't a physical match for Thor entirely.

Oh okay I see, but I don't think Thor: The Dark World is going to be very psycological.

It would be kinda cool if they mixed some elements of the Serpent from Fear Itself into Malekith. (even tho I hated FI)
Like maybe through some shady dealings, Odin screwed over Malekith to make Asgard the premier realm of the nine worlds instead of Svartleheim (sp?)
This shakes Thor's confidence in Odin as well as his Asgardian pride, so he goes back to Earth to be with Jane, at which point Odin is killed and Asgard gets destroyed, and Thor has to go back to put the pieces back together and ascend to the Throne.

I dunno, I'm not as good with making up plot points as some of y'all
But something like that could add some personal weight and tragedy to the story..

So who all wants to see Thor's durability showcased even more?

I'm talking being slammed into craters, walking through fire unharmed, and being knocked or blasted through solid rock.

I'm talking about having a blade or spear thrown into his face and him taking it head on.lol

Heck, I didn't like on how the fact that Thor had run to take cover from the bullets from the jet shooting at the Hulk made people think that Thor couldn't take being shot by a plane while the Hulk could.


Also, I want Thor's Elder God Ancestry Explored, let alone confirmed...

Why do you assume he has elder god ancestry?

Because his mother..his birth mother in the comics is a elder god, thus i'd hope that this would be something that'd be established as well in the MCU. And based on what we saw in a deleted scene between Odin and Frigga, where Frigga was arguing with Odin about his decision to banish Thor to Earth powerless, one thing that caught my attention was how Frigga yelled out the words "He's your son"..and not "He's OUR Son".

Now, if my theory is true, i would think that this deleted dialogue scene somewhat gives the possibility that Marvel Studios does have Thor's elder god ancestry in mind to potentially use

Yeah I would like to see Thor shrugging off Dark Elve weapons with their spears breaking when they hit his skin.

I didn't like Thor taking cover either, I know it makes sense since he's a warrior but some people think he can be geniunely harmed by bullets.

The key word there is "in the comics." Which is to say, you have no evidence that he's anything other than Asgardian in the movie. None. And unless you can come up with a good explanation for why they would even want to add such a complication, that is almost entirely irrelevant to the likely plots they would use in future movies. . .

Hence why I said that I hope it's confirmed or explored...since that part is still up for debate until said otherwise, and from what I've read about it, there's a lot of stories that they could do, along with adding new characters when introducing Thor's elder god ancestry.

Plus, it's stated that Thor being the son of a Earth Based Deity is one of the reasons why he's always had a special fondness for earth as well.

The thing is, those new characters would be completely irrelevant to the actual plot, 90% guaranteed. So you'd be cluttering up the story introducing plot elements that detract from giving attention to the actual focus of the story.

Anyway, there actually is an additional element of evidence against: the whole "he's adopted?" line in Avengers, which would make little sense if Thor himself were a bastard child. Nevermind the whole "at no point is Odin portrayed as a cheating bastard" problem.

He could have hooked up with Gaea, dumped her and found Frigga later lol. Therefore he still wouldn't be a cheating bastard just sayin.
