As a cameo or a mention. Thor doesn't belong in IM2, he belongs in either his own movie, or an Avengers movie.

Feel free to have a different opinion, but that's mine and it's pretty strong.

Default Thor in Iron Man 2

How would Norse mythology fit into Iron Mans world? I can understand The Hulk, Captain america.

How in the hell are they going to fit Thor mythology into Iron Man2? John Faverau has already stated that Iron man always would feel more grounded and real.

Haha I JUST made a thread about this in the sequels forum.

Trust me, I'm having a hard time figuring it out. While a part of me is always excited at the prospect of crossovers, I just dont see this one working

I think what I just figured in the other thread might work.
Just have Stark being briefed by Fury at a S.H.I.E.L.D. command center about some of the other super humans in the world.

They obviously set up the Avengers initiative in this one, so it be weird for it not to be touched upon again up until the Avengers film, so I can see it being a review of stock news footage, or top secret footage of Hulks New York clash with Abomination, and something like that concerning Thor.

I can't help but feel if this is the case, why the hell not try to keep it a secret?

Like I said: A mention is fine. Just to link the Universe together a bit, as you said, touch upon it.

Having Thor as supporting cast, or worse: fighting in IM2? That's genre-bending a bit too early.

And it also brings up the age old question: "Hey wait, where was Hulk while all this was going on?"

Thor being a central focus in an IM movie is a mistake. These two can cross in the Avengers environment, but in IM's world, no. I am fine with a mention or something small, but being central point would be a mistake.

I don't think Thor will be a main focus in Iron Man 2. I think we'll be sitting around til after the end credits for Thor's intro.

Don't even mention Thor in Iron man movies. They are going to screw it all up. If they make a Thor movie make similar to Beowoulf or something.

I think he's just going to make an appearnce in just one scene, maybe towards the end of the film that sets up for his film.

It's just going to be a cameo guys. Stop freaking out over nothing. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if it's no more than a random appearance by a guy named Donald Blake.

You guys are acting like Thor was just annoucned to be like the second lead character in the film or something. Like he'll be stealing screentime from Tony or will have a subplot of his own or something.

Seriously, chill out.

Ok, hold on a second man. No one's thinking Thor is the #2 character in the sequel. We're just saying: given that there is the "Marvel Universe", but also considering how Favreau has steeped the film in realism, how do they plausibly fit in Thor?

Well I was worried that he'd take screen time from Tonys character LOL. But I am sure its just a small cameo for the movie. I'll try to stay caulm. I didn't even think of the whole realism thing till JDym said some thing about it hmm. Hopefully they'll do it good, they did Iron Man fantastic I'm sure they will I faith in them on the second film.

I know, but it seems retarded to be hinting at a cameo so early on!
Is this just Marvel being bad at keeping a secret again?!

If it is just Fury briefing Tony, for some 3 minute scene, I'd of much rather they have attempted to conceal that as much as possible so we could possibly be treated to a surprise... Talk about your epic spoilers!

I think it could work if it is just a reference or mention to Thor. An appearance could work very well if it is Donald Blake, and not Thor himself.

You do realize they're making an Avengers movie, right? And that the Avengers movie will have both Iron Man and Thor in it, and will likely be directed by Favreau, right?

These characters will be meeting eventually, so I dont see the big deal in having it happen very briefly in Iron Man 2. With Favreau doing it, the tone of the Avengers film will probably be closer to Iron Man than any of the other characters. Favreau actually once said he wanted to do 3 Iron Man films, with the third being Avengers.

Favreau also said he wanted to only start this series realistically, but later have it evolve into more fantasical stuff. That's why he saved the Mandarin for the sequel.

How did they say they'd do this? It would set up Thors movie. Did they really say Thor would make a cameo? Becuase I could also see just maybe a mention of the character too. That way it doesn't take focouse away from Tony and it doesn't make any thing to weird for the movie.

If they deviate from what made Iron Man work in the first place they are idiots... and no one in this business in anywhere near that stupid... It'll be a cameo... plus it will save time having to explain how Thor ended up with the Avengers in the 1st place... I am against it but still... HOPEFULLY an after the credit scene.

I think he'll just be mentioned, maybe they'll have a scene of Fury running down the heroes to Tony. (Hulk, Thor, CA: Maybe even X-Men, FF, Spidey, GR & Blade if they can atleast mention them)

Does anyone know if they are planning on using Classic Thor or Ultimate Thor?

I think Vaughn spoke about 616-Thor. Not sure though.

Some replies have me envisioning the hollywood scene of a group of schoolgirls hearing a loud noise outside, and screaming and freaking out in their underwear. Thanks for the laughs!

That some people are actually arguing that "Thor can't fit in Favreau's and Iron Man's world of reality" is incredible. In other words, you don't want an Avengers film then.

Iron Man, Hulk and Captain America are all unrealistic, but in the movie context we believe they exist, as they are all 'scientifically created', so to speak.

So there is a very VERY easy way to fit Thor in to their world;
Just like the audience, they can't believe what they're seeing and hearing either!

Done.

And I'm sure that his appearance would be no more

than Fury's appearance in IM.

Someone posted something about Thor in IM2 somewhere else. Why do people hear something wrong then blow it out of proportion? Thor's getting his own movie.

While I do think they can co-exist in the same movie (Avengers, hello?) I dont think IM 2 is the spot for it. Thor's the kind of guy that needs a LOT of explaining.
