Is it not allowed to be both? Twirling to stay airborne but spinning it extra fast to create a cyclone? In The Avengers he starts spinning his hammer to go and save Iron Man but Hulk grabs him first.

It was the cyclone that kept him and the Destroyer in the air.

How did Thor fly when he took off after the Frost Giant battle to kill the beast in 'Thor'? I thought he just took straight off?

^^LOL. Chris' performance at "Dancing with the stars" was useful. Who could have predicted this? ;-))

He actually spins his hammer. They make a point of showing it.

I love Thor's helmet in THOR, it looks much cooler than all of his comic book helmets in my opinion.

You can try and play it off, but it is beyond obvious at this point. It you had anything to defend your point you would use it. What happened, did you watch the film again and realize how far off you were?

That's cool

I've watched it 25 times and I stand by what I said, I don't have to prove anything to anyone.


Edit: Why did you change the true colors bit bro, that was classic.

And yet you can't tell how big the Frost Giants are? You brought up their height and then act as if it is irrelevant what the film shows.

If they are as big as you say on average, how is Thor able to hit them in the face from a standing position? It is a very simple question you refuse to answer. You say you have and answer, but you won't even touch it.

It isn't like Hemsworth's Thor is suppose to be taller then the actor. He stands next to Portman and it isn't like they increased his height. The only Asgardian seemingly manipulated was Heimdall.

Every other shot of the Frost Giants, outside of Laufey who is clearly bigger then the rest by some margin, shows them to be about 2 feet taller (probably less) then Hemsworth and Hiddleston. Whether it be conversations between Loki and the Giants or Thor fighting them. Even when Odin fights them at the beginning that aren't that tall nor is the one Frigga kills. The biggest after Laufey are those that Heimdall fight and they are maybe 9 feet tall.

I was under the impression that the frost giants were shape shifters, and that's why they were different sizes in different scenes. Laufey was clearly much bigger when he was talking to Loki than he was when he had to walk around Asgard.

It doesn't matter what I say bro, you're so intent on them not being tall that it's not really gonna matter. Arguments go on for pages and at the end of the day neither one of us is gonna change out opinion.

So what's the point?

He isn't much taller when talking to Loki. He is on a throne that is raised. Also watch when he hits Frigga and when he talks to Odin after the Thor battle. He is roughly about four to five feet taller then all of them. Not a full body length taller. He is that large the entire time. The reason it looks odd is because he is sitting down on a raised platform. He doesn't change height.

Because this argument really isn't based on opinion. It isn't like we are interpreting emotions of the characters. We are talking about the size of the Frost Giants Thor fights. We know how tall the actors are and we see them interact with the Giants and humans. We know none of the Giants are twice their height. The first Giant Thor hits is standing straight up and he uppercuts him.

I hope I embedded that right! I've never tried before. Anyways, look at the 10 sec mark. That guy looks to be about 2-3 taller max. Now can't we (you) all get along? Lurking on two good posters fighting isn't nearly as fun as a good debate

They really didn't portray the Frost Giants very consistently to be honest, so it's really not worth arguing about.

Chill dude, it's definately not that serious.

Here, fixed it for you (all you have to do is put what's after the v= in the youtube url between the YT tags), so in this case, the 9enY0aMbCp8

Thanks! I'll try to remember that. Been trying to get out of lurker mode lately. Joining the hype and only posting in the batman forums is probably enough to scare anyone off

Anyways, back to speculation. Do you guys think they'll show any actual giants in this movie or any sequels? Like the ones in A:EMH (I grew up on DC so I know nothing about Thor's comics). I think it would be best if they didn't. Surtur would be even that much more intimidating if he was the only larger than life bad guy at that point in the MCU

Some Roger Wardell wannabe on Twitter says Loki is going to be on set tomorrow. Women, prepare your loins.

Agree. It looks silly to wear a helmet that only partially covers the head. And strapping it below the jaw makes it a lot awful.

I'd like to see more creatures the size of the ice monster in THOR, however I want Surtur to be the only sky scraper sized being.
