A Quick note about Twilight/ Sword of Doom. Has no one realised that Twilight is over 1000ft long and therefore cannot be in Odins Armoury.
Kevin Feige never names Twilight what he says is
"There is a sword there that may or may not be eternal."
The first thing I thought of when I read this was The Infinity Sword, which the name suggests that it's eternal but was shattered into thousands of fractals one of which created Reptil. These fractals could be used to create a completely new Hero and/ or Villain.
Again this is just a theory but.... The Infinity Sword WAS made for Thor.
Check this out;

Well in the comics there's the Twilight Sword AND the Odin Sword, both about the same length.
Can't see those pics by the way Paji, photobucket stinks these days with their sudden Bandwidth crud.

So, you're saying that Acura...in an article hyping their brand new product placement deal with Thor...where they talked about creating a brand new Acura that was not used in the final version of Thor...that they were ACTUALLY talking about another vehicle...NOT made by Acura...in a movie that was filmed years before their deal was made????

What is the possible motivation for Acura to do that?

No...much more likely is that the Acura spokesman was telling the truth...they built a new Acura for Thor which featured a Hulk Buster sound cannon that was cut from the final Thor film.

Oh I hope he's overpowered. I want a damn good Hulk vs Thor fight. Especially after watching Thor take down those frost giants and that beast. Looking at the Frost Giants now I can see Thor mistaking him for one or even a Troll and getting knocked on his ass for it.

I think we've seen enough of that in recent animation, it's getting kind of old really.

Is it too obvious to mention that the name of the NM town, "Puente Antiguo", means "Ancient Bridge"?

I've been wondering about this since my first viewing. Can anyone else here speak to whether a connection between Asgard and the Bifrost, and New Mexico, has some roots in the comics anywhere?

I assumed that the Viking-esque Asgardian knotwork circle that got burned into the ground when Thor landed was simply a feature of anywhere that Bifrost connects... except that I don't recall seeing the same thing on the ground on Jotunheim. (Well, darn, I guess that means I need to go see the movie again!)

But it certainly made me wonder if the implication was supposed to be that Odin just had the Bifrost connect with a random place on Earth to cast Thor down to... and that random place was "middle of nowhere, New Mexico", or whether there was some "reason" behind that connection point. (On the other hand I guess the selection couldn't have been too random. Odin wouldn't have wanted Thor to land in the middle of the Arctic, or in the ocean. At the same time, Thor got dumped in a place at least 15 miles from nearest human contact and in a place where figuring out which way to walk to get to civilization wouldn't have been easy to figure out.)

I guess I just wondered if the town's name was the film's writers just messing with us, or not.

It's not obvious to someone who doesn't speak Spanish.

Does anyone think it is weird that SHIELD just lets Selvig (Loki) into their headquarters?

Don't they have security to recognize a fake person...?

I assume you're talking about the post-credit scene?

Well firstly that's really Selvig, not Loki posing as Selvig. Though Loki appears to influence Selvig during the scene.

Secondly, he was brought there by SHEILD, he didn't just wander in. And I don't thinks it's SHEILD's HQ (which would be the Hellicarrier?) just one of probably dozens of facilities they have scattered around the world.

us fans, sure. But I think it'd be perfect for the general movie audience and I'm sure they'd all get a kick out of it. Thor hasn't really had any real competition, power-wise, on-screen yet anyway. He might've learned humility in his movie, but he hasn't really been beat down yet, so it'd be nice for him to get a little wake up call in that department. Plus, it's the perfect excuse for the Avengers to learn teamwork in the movie

Actually, been thinking about this a good bit; and have also been talking to some friends who really loved the movie, but who aren't terribly familiar with general comics. And I'm going to say... I disagree. I think Thor NEEDS to be shown as very powerful against the Hulk.

The thing is -- this movie wasn't a clear-cut primer on the power level of Asgardians or Thor in particular. It gave a few hints, and he looked completely badass in the fight scenes. But, when he was himself, his main opponents were other things that the GA has little way to judge in terms of how their power levels compare to other things the GA is actually familiar with. (Which is not necessarily the comics or any Avengers or Thor cartoons.)

Yes, the Frost Giants looked powerful, as did the Destroyer. But I don't think the GA can compare those opponents that well with, say, the Hulk. And the movie didn't have (or cut out) things like the Asgardians lifting stuff that would make an impression on the GA, like a car.

On the other hand, I'd say that if the GA has a sense of anything, it's the reputation of the Hulk in popular culture. Which, face it, the Hulk HAS a presence in popular culture. I would guess that people are generally aware of the Hulk as a character, and at least a very short brief of what his deal is (incredibly powerful, nearly unstoppable, "Hulk smash!", and "don't make him angry") -- I bet a lot of people could tell you at least that much (plus that he's green) if you stopped them on the street. It's not a detailed or nuanced view of the character, and it may not even be that accurate, but it's probably something the Avengers movie can count on.

Thor fighting the Hulk may be the first time the GA will see Thor's power in a context they can really understand. If they see the Hulk getting rocked by Thor, it will tell them faster than anything else how powerful Thor really is.

(Overall, I'm in favor of a pretty even fight that is interrupted before a real winner emerges. And I wouldn't mind at all if the point is made during it that the Hulk, in turn, is one of the toughest things Thor has ever encountered.)

Right, Eric even says that he was brought there at the beginning of the scene.
