Which I believe is perfectly possible. I already mentioned that. And that by the end of A3 he will be back.

Malekith looks great! I was admittedly 'meh' to Malekith as the main villain when first announced (compared to other potential Thor villains), but I'm really excited for the MCU version of the character now that the film is right around the corner. He's looking good!

I'm excited to see what Jason Aaron has in store for the character in the upcoming books, too.

It took over 4 months to film, early September into January. It's good they scheduled longer post-production, it'sbenificial for several reasons, like not rushing the VFX work (or any other aspect) which keeps cost down.

Joss's Hulk seems to be more in line with the original heroic but misunderstood version of the character.
Hulk doesn't have to be the Ultimate version to still be considered a monster. 616 Hulk is still "a nice guy" at heart, but the Avengers never kept him aboard more than one and a half issues. I don't doubt that Joss may be taking Hulk into a new direction by making him a bona fide superhero that everyone looks up to (literally, I guess), but I kinda think it's inevitable that future filmmakers will go back to the "hunted Hulk" version.

I looked it up and you're right. My bad, but in my defense, the article did say that shooting only took 2 months. So this is only half my fault .

I'm tired of that. Lets keep him as a hero, let hunted Hulk stay away for a bit.

Marvel is definitely trying to ride the fangirl wave with this (that sounds dirty). I don't mind as long as it is good for Thor. Use what will work for viral marketing, I say.

I do agree that too much focus on Loki can detract from Thor in the long run, though. But for now, ride that wave.

As far as this movie goes, Loki has gotten much more media attention than Thor. It is a Thor movie.

Yep, which is somehow disheartening. But it is good strategy from the marketing point. Like all Star Track marketing was Khan focused to the point I have never seen poster or billboard with Enterprise crew just Khan.

But the funny thing is that on facebook where this stunt was announced most reactions were "why on the earth would I want to fee him?!", but thats was before his "army" came with "free our lord, savior and king"!

Why can't Thor have an army? Can I join the Thor army? He just seems like he would take such better care of his followers. Also, I'm pretty sure, I might be wrong, but I think he's actually the good guy in the story.

Tumblr crowd think otherwise(really, he is the villain there) and all latest TDW marketing was catering to Loki fangirls from whom tumblr crowd consist of. I am bitter right now, I know it, but sometimes I think it will be easier to name this movie Loki- The Dark Wold.

I mean sure, you have the Hulk as well, but he's more of a wild card who seems to be more of a loner and someone that would only get involved when the situation calls for it.

Hell, I definitely like how there's this growing mystique about Thor when it comes to the perspectives of some of the other Marvel characters; I mean you have Alrich from Iron Man 3 noting on how things have never been quite the same since Thor arrived on Earth, and then you have the way that Coulson reinforces that belief whenever he mentions about Thor to anyone else on Earth.
Agreed, herolee.

I don't have a problem with lots of Loki marketing. Marketing =/= the movie.

My only issue will be if Loki is forced into a bigger role than he should have been based on the storyline. I love all the Odin Family Angst and I'm here for more Loki, but only if his presence is organic to the story.

I mean, I love Wolverine too, but that doesn't mean I like him stealing the show in every X-Men movie.

I stopped caring about X-Men movies a long time ago. The Avengers is the only superhero team up I need

As far as fighting went, he never really impressed me with that. If it wasn't for his army in Avengers, I felt like he wouldn't have been much of a threat. I'm not pulling from the comics at all, never read any of them. I'm sure he's all kinds of awesome in those, but just based on the movies, he has a great motive and wonderful, tense relationship with the hero as a villain, but as a threat, I wouldn't consider him all that great of one. So I'm happy to see him fighting and those few quick shots of him actually doing something physical and dirty in the trailers.

As for Thor, I think besides the thunder and lightning stuff, his strength really is muscle based. The war hammer is a strength weapon and that's the weapon he uses. He's strong, that's not all he is, but that's what he is.
I think I misunderstood what you were saying? When you said strengths, did you mean "assets" or actual physical strength? Like, how much one can lift, how hard one can punch?

If that's the case, then yes, I agree, Thor's physical strength is an attribute of his biology, if you will, his muscles.

I meant strengths as in assets. His strength is his weapon and asset

Oh then I disagree, respectfully. I think?????

I think that while it is AN asset, his main strengths (assets) are not his physical strength, but his powers. Hulks strengths (assets) are physical strength and brute force. We've seen thor show his physical strength, but his best assets are most definitely his super powers (weather, lightning, etc). He just happens to be strong, which he uses in battle.

But his main assets, his best assets are his super powers. In my opinion, his 3 most impressive feats, had nothing to do with his strength. Destroying a chunk of jotenheim with a lightning charged hammer strike, the tornaado, and blowing up two dragon bird ships with a blast of lightning. While Thor has had some impressive strength feats, they definitely take bake seat to his "heavy artillery", as they should. He's The God of Thunder, not strength


Wait, am I just repeating, essentially what you were saying? The context of the word "strength" has got me confused lol

I see where you're coming from but I can't help but disagree that strength isn't his main thing. It's his bread and butter, the thunder and lightning is the frills and extra goodness. Hulk is like 100% strength based. Thor would fall, I think, as a good 60-70% strength based with the rest being his thunder. Especially in the Avengers, it seemed he swung the hammer around more often than he hit stuff with thunder.
