Excuses, excuses.

Maybe if Thor spent a little more time thinking then screaming, he'd figure this stuff out. What is going to be the excuse this time when Loki fools him again. Lacking a hand?

We don't know for SURE that IS Thor's hand yet. lol but hey, when he lost his ARM to Wolverine as King Thor, he obliterated Logun and speared Thing AND Hulk with a pole with one arm lol

Well, at times, comic Thor has a brain. Can't say the same for MCU Thor. At least not yet.

INDEED I will. Look at what happened to Odin after he simply sent Thor IN the dark energy, it sent him to the healers!

If you're referring to the tie in/prequel comics that the huge majority of the GA (which I kinda include myself) never read, then that goes flying over our heads

I, too, wondered while watching avengers the last time why Thor didn't stay at his post atop the Chrysler Building
It seemed to be working well

He said "when you betray me, I will kill you." The emphasis is on "when" and not "if" so Thor clearly knows that Loki cannot be trusted. He's desperate and has no choice, we don't know the context so saying Thor is stupid is premature.

Loki has hardly displayed any magical abilities. Aside from a deleted scene in Thor. His astral projections, and copies. What else has he done? We havent seen him use any projectiles. All "powers" we saw him use in avengers was from the scepter. He was toying with Cap, tony comes in, and blasts him, Loki surrenders (as part of his plan)

however, in the final battle, he throws stark out the window, stark flies back up after getting his suit on, Loki is about to blast him with his scepter, but Ironman blasts him back, knocking him on his ass.

I think it is a disservice, because yes, Tony is a genius, and can create things, but Loki is a schemer. He has gone toe to toe with Thor while holding back. If loki fought any of the avengers, save Thor, the way he did with gunjir in the first movie, I think he could have taken them. But he showed nothing impressive in terms of combat and power in avengers 1. It was more about the avengers, than the threat. And I am hoping that somehow we get a power up from Loki.

I want to see him casting spells, energy shields, energy blasts..cast illusions, not just duplicates of himself, but illusions. Mind control.

I would LOVE to see Loki keep himself alive without his head, that would be CLASSIC

Yay. Can't believe we're finally at a point where all these interviews will start rolling in. Hemsworth will be doing a lot of promotion for Rush in the next few weeks too so he'll be getting asked about Thor along the way. Now bring on the trailer!

Loki used mind control in both Thor and TA. He used illusions, astral projection, and conjuring tricks. ALL of the characters are weaker in the MCU than they were in the comics. Also, if you notice, Loki gets knocked on his ass several times, but he is never really hurt. IM blasts him, he gets knocked back, then he gets right back up two seconds later and is completely unharmed. The only two Avengers who really hurt him are Thor and Hulk, and they SHOULD be able to hurt him.

The money shot for me was using Mjolnir on Jotunheim, and creating a shockwave of destruction. Thor is pretty freaking powerful, and he's the only one to go toe to toe with the Hulk and live to tell about it.

Iron Man was more of an annoyance to Thor, but Tony was able to use multiple tactics to fight Thor, then again neither of them were trying to kill one another. Also if you follow that the Arc Reactor is based off the cosmic cube as Howard Stark was able to study it, but unable to miniaturize the technology, nor create the element that powered it, but Tony figured it out, that would explain why Tony would stand a chance.

Again what do you want to see Thor do? Lift a building? That would look stupid, just like most of the feats of strength in MoS looked stupid. The only one that looked good was Clark straining to hold the tower on the oil rig.

I just want to see Thor battle like the warrior he is. This is a guy who has the ultimate battle tactics. Yes his strength is part of it, but again I think it has to look grounded or it takes the audience out of the film. MoS is one example, the star wars prequels are another example of this.
This.

I have to agree that they did a great job showing the Kryptonians power and speed in MOS.

It is the Marvel/DC thing. Pay it no mind. You can find plenty that will tell you TDK is too joyless and boring to be good.

For some MoS never stood a chance, just like for some DC fanboys, IM3 didn't stand a chance. And then you have the MCU fanboys for which The Wolverine never stood a chance. And then you have the Sony and X-Men fanboys that hate the look of anything MCU. It is hilarious.

Thor and Cap's lower profiles are actually a benefit in this regard. Iron Man takes most of the venom.

MoS was pretty cool, I've never cared for Superman and that got me pretty excited to see where they go with his character and the DCCU. I'm also very happy with what I've seen from Thor and almost everyone else in the MCU besides Cap and Hawkeye who are both getting upgrades in the future (Caps fighting and agility and Hawkeye expanded role) so I have no complaints thus far.

On a more on point note I cannot wait for this trailer tomorrow. There an estimated release time?

I didn't see anything wrong with his displays of power, though (aside from his willingness to allow humans to die during said displays). Thor, to me, has had quite a few impressive displays as well. And he was shown to have a ton of speed on Jotunheim. I don't need to see him whipping around like Flash to understand his strength.
The Kryptonians and Hulk don't move like the Flash. They simply move with intent and proportional speed to their strength.

And on the "allowing humans to die thing" (which is completely inaccurate). Did you freak when Thor lit up a building probably full of people in the Avengers? Or crashed a space eel into a train station full of people?

Here's the thing with Avengers--they showed the heroes trying to get people to safety in the beginning of the attack and attempted to contain the fight to a small area so that casualties wouldn't get out of hand. Nothing like that happened with MoS. It was bad writing, and robbed the character of a very important trait. You may not have had a problem with it and that's fine. I thought it was a horrible oversight.

Thor didn't light up the building either. He used the metal spire as a conduit.

As for Hulk and the Kryptonians, I guess I never connected their strength to their speed of movement. Hulk never stood out to me in Avengers as something shown to move faster than Thor.

I agree with Darthwalker on Thor moving like a normal human, I see exactly where he's coming from. That being said, the reason he doesn't look as super human when moving is because Hulk and Supes rely heavily on CGI.

Most of Thor's fighting is actually done by a human, whether it's Hemsworth or a stuntman and I'm okay with that. Because whether or not Thor looks to be as strong as Hulk or Supes, the fact that he IS still remains. All I would really add to show Thor's strength more is to include shockwaves whenever he hits something.
