So after the Superman/Batman news all I can think is that I am so happy I still have TDW coming in November.

It was something like, "They've totally gotta cast Alexander Skarsgard, he's so perfect for Thor, they're definitely gonna cast him... Wait, who's Chris Hemsworth?" *furious Googling* "OMG HE'S EVEN PERFECTER!"

In short: not a lot of outrage or anything, even though nobody really knew who he was and a lot of fans were all about Alex Skarsgard.

Yeah, what Corp said. As for Affleck, I just shock my head, and lost all hope I had for DC.

I don't see Affleck as being necessarily bad for Batman. He's really grown as an actor lately so if the script is good, I don't see him as a bad cast.

I was big on Skarsgard as I had no idea about Hemsworth. Now I can't imagine anyone else.

The Asgard shots are beautiful. The scenes look like Maxfield Parrish paintings. If Disneyland looked like that, I'd be there tomorrow.

Looks like they tweaked Malekith's appearance a bit since the first trailer, like Taylor said. The white of his eyes looks black now.

I'd have preferred a more glam rocky interpretation of Malekith but this looks really great!

also, half of his face looked scarred.. i wonder at what point his face suffers this, and whether it is related to some sacrifice as well

The article accompanying those photo on Empire has some good quotes from Taylor and one of the producers. It's a bit spoilery, though, so I've tagged it:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
"You know, we are killing Asgardians in this movie," says director Alan Taylor inside. "It turns out immortality isn't all that it was cracked up to be."

Explains producer Craig Kyle, "Asgard at the beginning of the first film was at a time of peace. Now our guys have been fighting for over a year, constantly. It's a time of war.

"When the Bifrost was broken at the end of the first film, Odin had to conjure a lot of dark energy and go through a lot of personal sacrifice to try and get his son back to Earth. And it was a one-shot deal. If Thor didn't succeed, without the Tesseract he couldn't have got back again. And in our film, finally the Bifrost has been rebuilt, but during that time, when the cops were largely cut off from the rest of the universe, you had miscreants that came in from outside the Nine Realms, pillaging and destroying and causing havoc. So that's what our guys have been doing now - trying to put all these fires out across the Nine Realms."

It would have been nice if they emphasized Thor needing the cosmic cube in Avengers.

I think the only time that they mentioned that was during his conversation with Loki on top of the mountain.

In short: not a lot of outrage or anything, even though nobody really knew who he was and a lot of fans were all about Alex Skarsgard.

The thing with Skarsgard was that there was this one scene in an early season of true blood where he was standing in a parking lot in the middle of a circle of vampires with long hair wearing a black t shirt. He towered over every one and he looked like he had a pretty good build to start with and he was playing an ancient Viking. Since then the next season started and he appeared to have lost a lot of weight. He looks almost scrawny at his height now. I think a lot of people had lost interest in him as Thor by the time Hemsworth was picked.

Really? Did you see Daredevil? Ben's always been a decent actor and he has gotten better but the real problem is he's not an action guy. He is stiff and uncoordinated. That's what hurt the Daredevil film and now that all of comicdom knows that it might kill a Batman film.
