I guess we're not going to see Amora in this franchise? Dang, She would be an interesting villain.

I wouldn't say that just yet; there's always room for her and even skurge to appear in the third Thor film.

True.

Besides, I would hate to have two powerhouse villains-Malekith and Amora-in the same film, as it could easily become unwieldy. Besides, I do not want Eccleston to have his screentime reduced.

I'm pretty certain Thor 3 will have Amora, Skurge and Surtur.

Where is all this Kat hate coming from? I don't remember a lot of negative comments about her when the first film came out. I only remember all the people talking about how hot she was which I never saw. To be honest she was barely noticable except for that tazer scene which was funny, but not so much because of her. If the writers want a fish out of water making funny comments here and there they're gonna have when. It's better her than Jane Foster. That's not Janes roll

Awesome news! I love villains. I wonder if he'll have a big suit of armor and a mask.

Dude, where were you? There was a ton of fanboy whining about her character and humor. I had no problem with her. She hot.

If the humor in this film is down graded to 1.8% of the script and the seriousness is upgraded to 98.2% we can have something really, really special, I'm talking Russel Crowes Gladiator special, Game of Thrones special...

"Expanded role" doesn't sound like a "blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo." That would be a much, much reduced role.

I hate to break it to you, but I think you're going to see her in the nine realms, maybe as a handmaiden to Jane if she's going all Asgardian princess on us.

Hopefully Kat gets captured and gets put in a sex slave outfit ala Princess Leia.

Thor was already far better than either of those and I'm sure the second film will be too!

Nothing wrong with humor. I'm pretty sure LOTR had like at least 25% humor, Avengers pretty much has 50% humor, Star Trek had about 35% humor. Epic movies can have humor as long as it's well executed and balanced.

He's playing an elf named Algrim who gets more powerful and calls himself Kurse.

Triple-A is another great casting. The guy is physically imposing (great match for Hemsworth on screen) and I'm loving that they are indeed including Algrim/Kurse.

Great news, glad to see Thor getting that physical threat to battle. Although, as BigThor pointed out, that should have been the Destroyer in the first film, so we'll see where they go with this.

Agreed, that is the one thing I remember from when the first film came out. Everybody loved the movie, but complained about her character. I couldn't believe what all the *****ing was about once I saw the movie.

Not necessarily.

*If* Kat gets a bigger role, it could be as a "dispatcher" back on Earth. Maybe she and Selvig "guide" Thor and Jane through the Nine Worlds back home at the nice little observatory with her nifty transdimensional headset that the reverse engineers at SHIELD were kind enough to provide. Dunno....just sayin'.

And I still get the impression that Thor is up against some more classic nemesis/es/i/whatever, of the "CGI monster" variety, that won't have an actual "casting" announcement. I could see entities like Surtur, Jormungandr, Fenris Wolf, or even Ego the Living Planet showing up in these regards.

So you're calling the reports of her expanded role false? Given the success of her TV show, there's no way her role in TDW is smaller than the first movie.

Malekith, the Dark Elves, and now Kurse seem like a lot already. I can't see them adding a CGI villain on top of that. Maybe as a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo.

If she's a "control" character, that's an expanded role, no? It's just that her scenes would take place on Earth as she monitors the progress of Thor and Jane in Fantasyland or wherever. "Expanded role" does *not* mean that her scenes necessarily take place outside of Earth.

And of the CG monstahs I listed, I could definitely see Surtur as a real possibility. Because he was actually part of the canonical Malekith/Kurse story arc, and there's been plenty of evidence that the casting call for extras seems to point to "fire breathers/eaters/ etc" as possible Fire Demons. (Among other denizens of the Nine Realms.)

True, though there should be more room to work with the threat that Kurse brings to the table since:

1. He's an actual character and not some robotic like machine..

2. I think they said that the only reason why they had rushed the fight between Thor and the Destroyer was because of the pacing, along with how they didn't want to see Thor struggle right after he had just been resurrected after having been killed.

Marcvader is right, I'm pretty stoked about Kurse being included in this film even though I was hoping for Executioner.

For some strange reason I'm actually starting to prefer Kurse being in the physical threat in this film over Skurge.
