I'm wondering, will they use the Gaea connection or will they keep Frigga as Thor's birth mother?
I really hope they ditch that entire element. It really wouldn't contribute anything useful to the movie, and would just create a muddled mess otherwise.

Maybe it's been answered elsewhere, but why exactly was Thor going to become King in 'Thor'?

I got the implication that 'this time it's different' regarding the Odinsleep, so were they going to crown Thor King as a precaution? Which sounds pretty daft if Odin (as it happened) woke again. Why not simply announce him as successor IN CASE, rather than zap him in there. Clearly when Odin awoke, he was still fully capable of being King so......

Was an alarm ringing on Odin's king-watch that said 'it's time'?

I never really understood it.

My belief was that even though Odin normally wakes up from his Odinsleep, I think he was hoping that he could finally pass on his duties as King to Thor for good by that point in time and allow Thor to take the reigns, which is probably why he was prolonging his sleep since he wanted to get that out of the way first.

Another possibility is that Asgard does not follow strict primogeniture, or at least doesn't have a strong established tradition for such ( which makes sense, given that near-immortals don't need heirs very often ). The ceremony could well have been more Thor's formal investiture as Odin's heir and successor, officially recognized as crown prince rather than simply being presumptive successor. Mind, his very first duty would have likely been "rule in Odin's stead as he enters the Odinsleep" either way.

Saw this on tumblr, don't think I realized this about the Avengers armor... it's interesting (if that's in fact what's etched on the vambrace - which it looks like it is):

Quote:

A vambrace in and of itself is nothing more than a piece of armor worn by warriors to protect their lower arms. However, in Norse mythology it was accustom to get symbols of your loved ones etched/carved into your vambrace as a way of mourning those who have past. It is a way of carrying your loved ones with you into battle.
In the Avengers you can see that Thor has the symbol of Loki’s helmet carved into his vambrace. This shows that he is mourning the loss of his brother. This could be literal or metaphorical death. However, he is no longer wearing the symbol on his armor in Thor 2. This could mean several things. One being simply , ‘Lokis alive…so lets not mourn the living.’ Or it could mean, ‘Loki is alive and redeemed so lets really not mourn a good thing here!’ Or it could be the other extreme, ‘Loki….you have ****ed up SO royally that I’m not even going to mourn your sorry ass.’
Either way! Lets just hope for good news and wait on baited breath for more Thor 2 goodness….

This is a really cool idea!

I'm having trouble finding another description of it. This link is a discussion group for people interested in Irish history, the particular topic being (historical) Viking armor. They seem to think that only the Varangians, Vikings of the east, in present-day Russia down through present-day Turkey (Byzantium), commonly wore vambraces (and they don't say anything about putting symbols on them). http://livinghistory.ie/viewtopic.php?t=717&f=7

One of the posters on that discussion group provided this link, which people may also find interesting, about Viking armor: http://www.hurstwic.org/history/arti...iking_mail.htm


But there's no reason why this can't be an Asgardian tradition!

I don't know if this has been asked or suggested before but in The Avengers when Captain America and Thor are fighting the Chituari and Thor helps Captain America up and Cap says are you getting sleepy...that was implied to be a stab at Odins sleep right or was it just me?

Yeah, I can't think of how Captain America would be aware of how Odin enters the Odinsleep from time to time. So probably he meant it simply as banter.

Also, I have the impression that the Odinsleep (later called the Thorsleep) comes on when the eponymous sleeper overexerts himself in the use of magic. That wasn't the case in TA.

Your just reading to much into it. I do how ever think that that line was Joss Whedons' way of conveying the fact that Thor doesn't tire.

It does look like it is. And I wouldnt put it past Marvel studios to do something so seemingly trivial to make the film more legit.

Rourke's tattoos were authentic Russian prison tattoos. I'm sure theres a lot of cool stuff even us fans missed.

Yeah they were that way in Thor too, but in Thor the left and right were two designs and one was shorter than the other.

no they definitely look different than in Thor. Its just generically stylized in Thor I think. I just checked.

I second this. We've gotten Loki in a suit twice so we should get Thor at least once...it could be a disguise thing even.

They can knock the helmet off of his head in battle for all I care, I just want to see him be in a fight with it on for just a little while. Pretty please.

Actually I think that "what? you gettin' sleepy" line is just Whedon's way of having Steve show that tough little guy from Brooklyn coming through. I love that moment but I dont think it has anything to do with Thor and Odinsleep.
