He definitely could work as Balder.

It would be interesting if Balder dies because Loki has become jealous of the attention he gets from Odin like he's a conquering hero returning home while Loki is virtually ignored. Wouldn't that set up a great scene of dramatic proportions between Loki and Odin.

Yes, yes, this is true. I just thought it would be neat since Liam didn't get cast as Thor if they cast him as Donald instead. It would be too cute to see the two brothers doing a movie together as well.

speaking of Height. I was comparing the Hasbro 6" movie Thor to the
6" movie Captain America SCALE wise Thor's taller by a foot! lol At least Hasbro has that detail down.

I hope that the film is given like a 200 million dollar budget so that they'll have more of a chance to really show on what Thor's part of the universe has to offer.

I'd love for this film to have a 200 million dollar budget and I think it should be 185 million at the very least.

It's still surprising to think at times that Thor will have been on the Big screen not once twice, but for THREE STRAIGHT YEARS IN A ROW. I mean, tell me one hero that's had the opportunity on appearing in films in three consecutive years.

The only characters that I've known to appear on the big screen for three straight years have been the Lord of the Ring ones.

Maybe it's because I've had an over 20 year obsession with The Phantom of the Opera musical, but I'm starting to think that maybe Tom Hiddleston could get some good ideas for the mindset of a fallen Loki by looking to the character of the Phantom as a source of inspiration. Overall, just like Loki, the Phantom does some pretty heinous things because of his isolation and the depth of fear and loathing others have for him because of things that were not of his choosing, namely his deformity. In Loki's case his deformity would be more metaphysical and the fact that he's a Frost Giant, the mortal enemies of Asgard.

Um...Christopher Reeves played Superman for 4 straight movies.

Plus Hugh Jackman beats CR as he played Wolverine in 5 straight movies, (albeit not for consecutive years).

My worry is that such a huge budget (a $50 million jump) would put too much pressure on the movie to perform. A $200 million budget would require a box-office of significantly over $500 million WW gross to be worth it. I'd go with a $180 million dollar budget for now.

You're a big Loki fan aren't you? I hardly even see you post anything about other Thor characters or even Thor himself.

I don't mean it in a bad way though, just something that I've noticed.

Basically, yes, I adore the character of Loki in the movie. He's not just the typical cackling, evil for evil's sake baddie. Tom Hiddleston played him as a fully realized, thoroughly thought out, individual that you can empathize with.

That and I've never really read any of the comics. As I stated in other threads I only really read X-Men and Spider-man when I read comic books. The only thing i knew about Thor was that he was this Norse God Deity with a hammer.

Would it be too soon and too much to ask to see Thor command a battalion of Asgardian Warriors into battle for this film?

Nope, I think that would be awesome and THOR 2 is the perfect film for that to happen especially with the the whole "exploring other world" aspect of the movie.

My wish list includes Hela as a villain and a Valkyrie appearance. Failing that I'd like to see Baldur and maybe the Norns.

Connery played James Bond for 4 straight consecutive years from 62-65.

As far as the budget: I'd be willing to bet 150 million, since that's what MS outlined at the start of their MCU project for all their films (except for those yet-to-appear "smaller" films budgeted at 30 mil or so).

Avengers and IM2 have been the only variant from that so far.

"Thor" had a budget of 150 million so it'd make sense to have a bigger budget than 150 million for its sequel imho.

No sense at all, it's going to atleast have a 20 million dollar increase.

You know, I think that Liam Hemsworth would be a good choice for Balder as well.

I really hope it doesn't go above $180 million; it will put too much pressure on it to perform in the BO.

I wouldn't be suprised if it didn't get a budget increase considering the bulk of the design work, props and CGI templates are done.

The best part is that you can hint at the brother connection through resemblance but never actually say they are brothers.

Yeah but those were just for Asgard and Jotunhiem, they're going to explore even more worlds in this film so there will be quite a few new designs and props.

A budget of 185 million would be pretty good in my opinion.

I'm just curious though, what is the parentage of Balder and Thor? I know they share Odin as their biological father, but who are the mothers? Is Frigga Balder's mother and Thor has a different mother? If so, between Balder, Thor and Loki, Frigga is a vastly loving, compassionate, selfless woman for taking care of so many kids with different gene pools.
