I always did think that there might be something that happens in this film that will cause Thor to leave Asgard by the end of the film and stay on Earth which would allow him to become more established as a hero on Earth to its inhabitants and that we wouldn't have to wait to see Thor appear on screen once the Avengers 2 came out.
That is another excellent point. This scenario might allow him to do that in a way that makes sense.

and not to make it about Loki (as some of you know I often do ) but....

wouldn't it be a major surprising twist if in the process of all of this, Thor loses favor with Odin, and Loki on the other hand stays and fights for Asgard and gains Odin's favor and approval finally?

And I dont believe it's just a random movie title, "self sacrifice" was clearly a theme for Thor in Thor 1, so seems like a story about "moral sacrifice" is a likely follow up.
I think it's more likely to be an Easter Egg, ie, a hidden cute inside reference placed there to wink at fans like us. In Thor1, Easter Eggs included the following: the water tank in the background when Thor is walking up to the Destroyer reads "Home of the Vikings". On a billboard that Jane and Co. can see when they're sitting on the roof of Smith Motors reads "New Mexico, Land of Enchantment. . .Journey into Mystery".

Not to say that it can't be more significant, as you suggest. I just think it's less likely.

Now, to argue the "pro" side of the case: I recall reading that they (whoever "they" are) have planned to have all the heroes struggle with what transpired in The Avengers. They would all be processing the implications. Yes, they saved the world, but a lot of bystanders were hurt. I heard that in IM3, they would specifically discuss (a) bystander(s) that died. The heroes have to come to terms with that. In The Avengers, we see Thor ruminating on how the Asgardians are the ones who have caused all this trouble. That may continue to weigh on his mind.

I can make some general comments about what elizah says behind the spoiler button, before I get to specifics.

When I was thinking about her post, I realized I wasn't quite certain what "moral sacrifice" meant to people. I did a quick Google, and found a couple of different meanings. Generally, it means the sacrifice of one's morals (duh), but there are all sorts of different sacrifices and all sorts of different morals. So they can go in any of a number of different directions with this. It's rich in possibilities, and it's another reason why this movie could be really terrific (if indeed they incorporate this element). I think we'll have a hard time anticipating what such a moral sacrifice they might have in mind, though, because there are so many possibilities.

This would certainly make Odin less likely to make him King if he seems he's more invested in saving and protecting another realm than staying and defending Asgard and getting the other threat back under control. but at the same time, I can't see Thor doing any less than trying to defend Earth in such a situation. So... thoughts?

I have the impression that Odin in the books would give this order. I'm not as certain that Odin in the movies would. So I'm not certain this exact dilemma would be set up. On the other hand, it would add weight to the iconic "For Asgard!"/"For Midgard!"/"For Myself!" climax with Surtur in the Simonson arc.


So does this mean I'm going to have to add Ultimates Thor to my (ever longer) reading list?

That is a very good point! AN interesting angle that I had not thought about.

Well, I looked at the pages again, and it doesn't look like the word is being used as onomatopoeia (hooray! I got to use that word in conversation once in my life!) for the hammer connecting with the work, but rather the narrator's comment on the implication of Surtur's forging Twilight.

But I agree with the idea you put forward--have some cutaways several times to a big figure forging something, we hear the sound shake the theater, and we are filled with dread. Definitely start the film with one of those.

I think it definitely would be in keeping with the spirit of Simonson's presentation.

Especially if the movie is setting up several character arcs that can lead for a loki redemption. as I said before, Loki's redemption should be against surtur. The movie is based off the run. In the run, that is loki's remption. It is logical for the movie too, not only cause its what happens in the arc this movie is based off of, but it just simply makes sense. This one demon comes in and loki finally redeems himself. I for one can't wait to see a throw down with Odin, Thor, and Loki vs Surtur

SAVED! You can't take it back now!

and another point, from the synopsis "Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all." The wording, most personal journey yet and force him to sacrifice everything to save *us* all would certainly support my theory.

I agree. It could be a huge cliffhanger!

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
This exiled-Thor idea is growing me. So if Thor is outcast (um, again) and living on Earth at the end of T:TDW:
1. That's another cliffhanger--how will he reconcile with Asgard given that they surely will need him for Surtur.
2.As I said, it adds power to Thor's declaration, "For Midgard!", in the iconic moment.
3. I've always felt having Surtur show up at the end of Thor2 would make the movie overstuffed, and cheat all the fights in the rush to get through the whole story. But there were two things I hadn't figured out about the alternative: a) what would fill out the rest of Thor3 and b) what would keep knowledgeable fans curious? I mean, if it's *just* the Surtur fight, everyone who's read the Simonson arc will know exactly what to expect, and there's no suspense.

Maybe this idea addresses all of these aspects.

Ooo! <shiver>


Apologies to those avoiding spoilers for putting most of this behind spoiler buttons.

Well, in my honest opinion regarding the matter:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


1. I could see Movie-Odin resorting to abandoning the Earth if he feels like he has no other choice. I remember on how in "Thor 1", Odin mentioned on how much he had to sacrifice in the past in order to maintain the overall peace, and given his ancient age, this is probably a person who has gotten used to having to make big sacrifices if push came to shove.

2. Rather than being exiled, I could see Thor choosing to leave Earth, in a similar manner that "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" had done when Thor left Asgard at the beginning on his own free will after getting into a argument with Odin. Thor's development as a character could eventually evolve through the course of the next Avengers and Thor film (Thor 3) where Thor realizes that Earth is well enough in capable of hands of defending itself and that he doesn't need to be there as much as a result.

I think it actually makes sense to finish this movie off with Surtur. Makes a good point. We would know who is coming. Idk if I want Thor exiled again. I want to see how he has matured. He may get sent to earth, but i dont want him to loose his powers.

And yeah, Odin would definitally tell thor to abandon midgard.

Not sure if I agree with the EMH way. I wouldn't mind seein him on earth for a bit. But not when earth problems are his only problem. I will want more than 50% of his problems to be asgardian related

basically, i don't want him, or the ga to forget he's asgardian

get what im saying?

No doubt about it. I mean, if what I think really does happen, I could just see the ending of Thor 2 feature Thor getting adjusted towards being on Earth more often and that it's in Thor 3 where he returns back to Asgard to deal with its problems.

Yes to both of these.

and yes as jaqua99 stated too, from what I know of comics Odin he'd likely abandon Midgard like a hot mess. Especially with so much bad going on "upstairs"

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
I dont think exile, I think more choosing to "sacrifice" (as in the the synopsis) his role on Asgard to defend Earth, and while Odin isnt happy that doesn't mean he wont take him back. What Thor does in this instance is not anywhere near the same as his attack on the Jotuns, or all the bad stuff Loki does, so no reason to exile Thor. What Thor does is out of love not hate. it'll just bother Odin that he now seems more loyal to Midgard than Asgard. not a good quality to have in a king.


RE: Surtur, I'm still leaning towards seeing him in Thor3. I think we are too jam packed with stuff at the moment and he'd be better served later as the major bad in Thor 3, not just showing up at the end to possibly kill Odin. Plus I think it may be too early to kill Odin. I've always assumed there would be at least 3 Thor movies.

I'm currently mulling over the scenarios of where Thor could be living at the end of Thor 2 and why, but will get back to you in a bit about that.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
I dont think exile, I think more choosing to "sacrifice" (as in the the synopsis) his role on Asgard to defend Earth, and while Odin isnt happy that doesn't mean he wont take him back. What Thor does in this instance is not anywhere near the same as his attack on the Jotuns, or all the bad stuff Loki does, so no reason to exile Thor. What Thor does is out of love not hate. it'll just bother Odin that he now seems more loyal to Midgard than Asgard. not a good quality to have in a king.


RE: Surtur, I'm still leaning towards seeing him in Thor3. I think we are too jam packed with stuff at the moment and he'd be better served later as the major bad in Thor 3, not just showing up at the end to possibly kill Odin. Plus I think it may be too early to kill Odin. I've always assumed there would be at least 3 Thor movies.

I'm currently mulling over the scenarios of where Thor could be living at the end of Thor 2 and why, but will get back to you in a bit about that.
I prefer Surtur to appear in 3 as well. I am hoping for a post credit scene. But the snyopsis is making me think otherwise

You know, on another note, I hope that whenever Thor makes a grand entrance in "TDW" that it gains the same type of reaction that he got when he first appeared on screen in "The Avengers".

The looks and reactions on Tony's, Steve's, Natasha's, and Loki's faces when they all heard and felt Thor landing on top of the Quinjet, mixed in with the iconography and music of that moment was just EPIC. IT really conveyed on what a force and presence that Thor was and that when he arrives onto the scene, it's a whole new ball game/game changer.

Very true, I hope Thor mades a similar or even better grand entrance at the beginning of Thor:TDW:

You know, one thing that I hope that we get to see in a few more interactions between Thor and Erik Selvig. That was one thing that I had wished that we had seen more of in "The Avengers", but I understand why there wasn't enough time to deal with that. Still, it would have been nice to see their interactions post Erik witnessing what Thor could really do and how he was telling the truth about his identity back in the first film.

If they had allowed the events in "Thor" to have taken place from a span of a few months as opposed to just 3 days, Erik could have even been used imho as a good surrogate father figure for Thor (despite their huge age differences.lol) on Earth.

Oh lol, my mom just told me a few minutes ago that in Australia they were reporting a record number of lightning strikes. I told her that was nothing to worry about, it just meant that Chris Hemsworth was home visiting for awhile. She did not know that Chris was Australian, which surprised me. I thought his accent was a give away about that.

Not terribly Thor related....other than the title they gave the 'hold' - but Hemsworth holding India (I swear his biceps are as big as she is in this pic *lol*)



and just to keep it Thor related, they also had a set pic in the Star Tracks section that's similar (if not the same) as a lot of the set pics we've been seeing recently:
