He might as well have done this if they are permanently removing
his arm/hand which some people seem to think they will do.

Loki: "I take from you, your hand, and cast it out!"
Then we see it get flushed down the toilet only to
fall upon Midgard and hit Ultron in the face thus creating a short-circut.
Then it will be there until Thor gets it back but at what cost?
Ultron starts living again and then they can do A2, a good way to connect the movies
and save Thor´s hand.

Hmm. If Thor's hand has been infected I wonder if the crucial thing here is that if he summons mjolnir and it's touched by the infected hand that Thor no longer controls mjolnir?

If that's the scenario then Loki is chopping off the hand to stop the infection spreading, to save mjolnir from getting lost to the baddies, and he gets to satisfy his evil side by inflicting bodily harm on Thor!

Yeah I heard someone say that before, it´s possible. But I am 100% sure that he will get the hand back.

Isn´t it more likely that it´s some kind of illusion that Loki uses to fool someone?

I very much doubt we'll see Thor with one hand for too long. If the Asgardians can build things like the rainbow bridge then I'm sure reconstructing a new hand isn't that much of a stretch.

Yeah we don't know the context. The trailer cut was meant to shock, and that's exactly what it did.

I agree, I just don't want to see a mechanical hand, or magical or whatever. It's been done too many times.

Hey maybe an end credit scene where Tony injects Extremis into him and he grows back his hand. LOL!

Except that a heap of people apparently didn't notice that the hand was chopped off. I still can't believe the variation of reports, especially when you show some reporting that they actually saw the post-chop stump in that clip.

Yeah descriptions are all over the place. I think perhaps because the scene was cut so quickly.

I wonder if it was like Ned Stark's head chopping scene that Taylor did, where you see the blade go through the neck, but you never see the head come off.

Argh! No GoT spoilers. I've only just managed to see the series and I was so pissed off that someone online had spoiled that bit for me, as I'd deliberately avoided all GoT forums.

The book has been out for nearly 20 years and the first season aired over 2 years ago. That is on you.

The show is only on pay tv and a lot of people wait for the DVDs to come out before they watch it. Season 3 DVD isn't out until 2014 but if you've read all books and you think it's fine then go ahead here and drop as many big spoilers as you like for all the seasons to come.

The blu ray and DVD for season 1 GoT came out last year.

I have no idea when they came out in Australia, but please do spoil me here, now for what is going to happen in the future seasons if you've read the books. Clearly the book and US release dates for these things is all that matters and a Thor movie forum is the right place to discuss spoilers for a cable tv show.

Well I'm not trying to spoil the show, the only reason I mentioned that scene is because 1. Alan Taylor directed it, and because 2. it showed dismemberment without actually showing blood or body parts falling off.

Yeah, doesn't make any sense. It tells me that there's a peculiar way the trailer was edited.

Say, in the teaser there is a shot of what looks to be Loki, Thor and Jane walking together at some point, yes? In some mountainous area. Does Thor in that breif monent look like Jane is helping him because he's hobbled? Or am I off base here?

I watched the teaser again and it does not look like Thor is hurt in that scene, he seems to be helping Jane...they also state that Thor cries Noooo!!! when the scene of the hand cutting fades quickly to black ...we all know from the first teaser that this cannot be so...but rather he is screaming Nooo!!! not because of any physical pain inflicted upon himself but clearly an emotional outcry due to either jane or someone else being hurt or killed by whoever he is fighting ...I still think he does not loose a hand..I feel its just a sly editing trick....

Ok. That seems likely. They edited the big "Noooo!" moment with the footage shown at SDCC. I am not totally against something like this happening. It could be interesting and dramatic. Plus it would quiet the "MARVEL films are no stakes kid films" detractors some. I can go either way really. I like flights of fancy adventure with my superheros. I like big serious dramatic takes on my superheros. I'm lucky that I get both kinds of films now.

Yeah I'm not sold either. I've do doubts of the account of the footage, but it's just that I've seen that done a ton of times in movie, making you think one character is in peril, and it ends up being something else.

Were it not for ESB, or Aquaman, or Jamie Lannister, I'd totally be on board with this, but the severed hand is just entirely overplayed.

*edit* Had to blackout that last bit as we had a big discussion early about GoT spoilers.

Really hoping we'll get to see the footage soon so we can all make up our own minds about it.
