i am sure they will do good with fights heck the film is likely going to be 2hrs- 2hr 5mins frame. That seems to be the place marvel has for their films. So that leaves plently of time for a good fights all around.

I would love to see some really great flying scenes. Be it the Ironman films, or Superman Returns, I feel like we really havent gotten any visually epic flying scenes yet in a superhero movie so I hope to see it with Thor.

By the way, does anyone know who's doing the effects?

They must show Frost Giants getting their asses kicked in the movie. It's a great way to establish Thor's strength, skill, determination, badassery.

I hope we get to see Thor look cool flying around too, but in terms of general flying scenes, I thought the ones in Iron Man where Tony has to dodge those jets was pretty awesome. That's my favorite "superhero flight" scene so far.

Things I hope to see in terms of action.

Thor throwing a lightning bolt and burning a dark elf a fairie or a frost giant to a crisp.

Thor swinging Mijolnir like a bat and smashing his opponents in the face sending them flying backwards.

Thor doing a giant leap to smash someone in the face (maybe a frost giant or the Destroyer)

I'm trying not to put too many of my own specific expectations on the movie, but whenever I think about Thor rolling around Asgard pre-fall, being a completely arrogant jerk, my mind keeps going back to that scene from Ages of Thunder where he throws Mjolnir and then in the next panel you see it pop through the other side of a frost giant's head.

I would just like to see Thor fighting using Mjolnir and some weather manipulation. I am pretty sure he will fly and the rest but essentially I want him doing the first two.

I want to see the sort of sarcastic bad ass scene where a lot of bad guys think they have the upper hand and then rather easily they are dispatched. Like the scene in the first Iron Man where the terrorists have like 5 people held a gunpoint and Tony has the 5 bullets shoot simultaneously and kill the guys to free the people. That was badass. I'd like to see something similar with Thor.

That would be cool if they were taunting Thor because he's not supposed to exist. "God of thunder, huh? Well, guess what, pal? I'm an atheist!" And then he looks back to laugh with his buddies and when he turns around again he gets a hammer to the jaw that knocks him back a block or two.

I want Thor taking on a frost giant solo. Maybe it's his last battle in Asgard before being banished to Earth.

Ok, we have seen the trailer.

now going back to the topic... do you think we have seen the main action of the movie? or are they keeping the biggest action for the final trailer?

I'd go with the second option.

Probably keeping those scenes for other trailers. I'm sure the hammer Shock-wave is part of the battle with the Frost Giants that get's Thor banished.
You can't expect to see everything tho, there won't be anything left to the movie! lol

Perhaps I'm not familiar, but is Thor's hammer supposed to act like Cap's Shield?

If you are asking whether it boomerangs back to Thor's hand after it being thrown, like Cap's shield, then the answer is yes. However, Thor's hammer uses magic to return to Thor, but I'm not sure how Cap's shield does its trick.

The battle scenes look more intimate and smaller scale. There were only like 5-6 frost giants vs the 5-6 Asgardians.

I do not predict massive scale LOTR battles. The 4 main action scenes being Thor vs Frost Giants, Thor vs Destroyer, Thor vs Shield Soldiers which is just a regular fist fight, then Thor vs Loki - again one on one intimate small scale stuff.

The scope of the film so far with the exception of the CGI asgard shots looks actually quite small for what I was expecting...

Ya no doubt. That could change once we've seen the film, but for now the teaser trailer gives it a very "kept" feel. The story itself really could be made into an LOTR-type, but that is obviously not going to be this film.

I think this movie looks like its going to be incredible for action! Think about it, how many fight scenes did either Hulk or Iron Man have? The Thor trailer already has more in quantity, and ALL of them are BIG...Frost Giants, SHIELD(as a mortal), Destroyer, and of course Loki. Thats saying that those are the ONLY fight scenes as well. I think the Destroyer fight is going to display his power the most. As for flight? ...well that is how he is going to get to where the Destroyer is after Coulson brings him back to the hammer as a last ditch effort

Yeah I understand you, but I'd rather see more "focused" action rather than "large scale" action. It's because when the scope is too big they tend to "jump around" alot between different perspectives of the action (see. Transformers 1 final batte). "Focused" action allows for more detailed & more satisfying fight scenes

Besides, The Destroyer >>> Any amount of forces Loki can muster up. Unlike some peope on this thread I actually think they're going to save The Destroyer for the final batte, like they should (The Detroyer is far more of a threat than Loki)
