Ugh. between this,

and the fact that everyone accepts the existence of Thor, a alien god, immediately,


makes me a little upset. Whedon did cut 45 minutes out of the film, I'm sure some of that footage would have helped all these. Oh well, I'll still love it I'm sure.

Bosef, wait! You can't leave me wondering like this, so Jane is in the movie? But it is your least favorite part... can you maybe explain a little more so I understand it? It is okay, you can spoil the whole scene for me I don't care. So is Natalie Portman in the movie?

Agreed... I have no idea why the Thor/Jane thing is an issue, at all.

And I was making a joke about the insane specificity of the questions that are being asked. No offense toward Clevelanders intended, butthead.

I also don't get why comic book fans get so hung up on explanations for things. It's a comic book movie! We want great character moments, great action, high stakes, surprising storytelling. Explanations for minor story elements are deadly dull on screen.

If there was a scene where Fury and Selvig sat Thor down and made him explain in great detail exactly how he got to earth and how it is possible that he can exist, people would be falling asleep in the theater.

IF Loki had died in Thor then that would have been wasted potential,Loki has been one of Avenger's biggest foe in the comics anyway and so it would almost be like IF WB made a Superman&Batman cross-over film But did not have both Lex&Joker as main villains!!

Why were people expecting anymore than quick references to the things in previous movies? This is it's own separate film, save some stuff for the next lot of solo movies. Otherwise you'd inevitably have people complaining that Avengers doesn't feel like it's own story with too many references to previous entries.

Why? He has every reason to be the main protagonist in this after the events of Thor. Plus it adds emotional depth with Thor being in the team. Seems ideal to me. Plus I will never get tired of watching Hiddleston as Loki.

It's the only thread we have for reviews right now so it's just etiquette so as to not ruin the movie for others.

A picture or a reference to her is not possible?

Well no, because everything I am hearing it is a CAMEO. Like Jane actually appears. Oh god, I hope it wasn't a recast...

Natalie Portman as Jane. Jane apparently cameos in the movie, but Bosef says Portman isn't in the movie. Reportedly there was some controversy about Portman not wanting to be in Thor 2, so who knows...

So some are actually upset that it's not explained in detail about how Thor makes it back to earth?,Loki mentioning that he knows Odin used his own powers to get Thor here is fine enough with me,They can&will likely go much more into details in Thor II how Thor can now travel to different realms again!!

Plus they will likely do comics&novels based on the film and explain stuff before the movie&stuff not shown(Thor&Odin)!

Oddly enough, the Feige interview that was just posted in the main thread actually seems to spoil the Jane cameo, at least in general terms.

He also says the entire cast is coming back for Thor 2, though. *whew*

It's a big deal because it's an important plot and character moment that can't be glossed over...

Who says it's important to this story?

Can't believe it "makes or breaks" the film for you. You'll write off the whole film because of this detail? What do you expect? A full scene with Thor and Jane? Never going to happen, considering Portman was unavailable because of pregnancy.

You've been searching for a negative spin on all this and the film isn't even released yet. It's quite shocking really.

No it isn't. Not in the real world.

Only in the minds of those trying to find fault.
