I saw your post this morning, had to rush off for work and didn't have time to respond.

Sombra, fact of the matter is that these 'Loki Crazies' were - if I'm guessing correctly - two extremely enthusiastic posters who did not deserve the level of rudeness and vitriol they encountered here. True they enjoyed speculation to the extreme, but they also came up with interesting theories (one of them even putting a storyboard together based on scene clapperboard numbers). Thanks to that same person, I could always count on coming here and getting up to the minute Thor news. Now I visit her website daily for updates that show up hours, sometimes days later here. You can thank the ones who 'drove off the Loki crazies' for that.

This site should be big enough to accommodate a variety of dissenting opinions without people getting bent out of shape (I know, I know, welcome to the internet). Fact of the matter is that the two of them seemed quite happy speculating between themselves; there was no reason why alternate conversation threads could not have happened around them. As for the boards being 'hijacked'...please. I've seen message board hijacked before, this was Hijack 101.

Personally, I was sorry to see this episode play out here. It was disappointing on many levels.

I'd say it's likely that we have flashbacks showing the Dark Elf in happier times. (And I have now typed a sentence I never thought I would. ) Or, maybe he appears in the present unscarred at first, Thor "lights the bastard" up and then he makes a retreat to lick his wounds for a bit.

I guess the easiest answer is 'before' and 'after'. Do you have a link?

(Nevermind, I forgot we don't link to 'the site that will not be named'.)

Sombra,

This was on my mind today. I posted before reading to the end and seeing that others had handled it already. Day late and dollar short, as the saying goes! I'm sorry if I gave the impression of beating up on you. More than anything, what I wanted was to make sure you had a bigger picture of what happened.

What more do I want from you? That you stay as enthusiastic about the fandom as you've demonstrated so far.

To be honest, I think Malekith's fight with Thor is going to be more epic than the Kurse/Thor fight. I say this because of how they've been building Malekith's threat level up in the trailers and especially the cast interviews. Not only that but the deal was pretty much SEALED when Chris E. said
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Thor and Malekith are going to be sliding up and down sky scrapers and fighting in mid air.


Now I might be wrong, but until more information on Kurse comes out I'll be inclined to feel this way.

Nothing could make me not enthusiastic for Thor and this movie.

No hard feelings. I'd give you a hug but they have no hug smiley so instead

Well obviously the final battle would be with the primary antagonist. I still expect Kurse to pummel Thor, and ultimately Malekith. Don't forget how AAAA described Kurse. "Super powerful" "no body can stop him" and he also mentioned a bit of a twist, which could be Kurse killing malekith.

Rush has premiered and the reviews for it so far are really great. They're much better than I expected and Hemsworth's performance is getting lots of praise.

Just another little positive thing as we move towards TDW.

Those probably will be released as character posters sometime down the line. Mid-late September I guess.

Okay guys while your attention may still be directed towards Sweden!

Here is a google translation I did of a text you might be a little interested in. I hope no one goes awol just because I posted it here. Itīs about the only Swedish superhero comics. It has basically been "dead" for like forever (because it has become bad). "Fantomen" is his name, or The Phantom in english. Anyways he has connections to norse mythology but I really just felt like sharing because you would probably never hear about him since it is national news.

Short version: Itīs basically about a swedish guy (that has drawn Batman for DC comics in the states) thatīs going to start drawing "Fantomen" or "The Phantom". It used to be an awesome swedish comic and I am really pumped about this new one!

The Google translation:
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Quote:
Three crowns and a large axe is the new Swedish super hero The Norseman's attribute.
In autumn launch figure in Swedish "The Phantom " .
- I want to be more than clear that it is our own superhero , says creator Henrik Jonsson to Aftonbladet .

This autumn, the figure The Norseman occur as a mini serie divided into four parts in the Swedish "The Phantom " .
Series creator behind "The Norseman " is Henrik Jonsson , 27, who was educated in the United States and has also drawn Batman for DC Comics.
- It started as a school project where they would create their own superhero. Then I decided to make an adventure series set in Sweden . I continued with it . Last year I heard of me " Phantom " editorial team and asked for signs jobs. Then I got the chance to make The Norseman . There have been so many pure superheroes in Sweden , says Henrik Jonsson.
Superhuman powers
The Norseman 's real name is Richard North and is a young boy growing up on his grandparents' farm in the countryside. In fact, he is grandson of the Norse god Balder and have superhuman powers .
- He's trying to hide from the Nordic gods who are after him , says Henrik Jonsson.
Do you think Sweden can absorb a Swedish superhero ?
- It will be interesting to see. I want to be more than clear that it will be our superhero.
If it goes well, it will be a graphic novel , then?
- I hope that it becomes disgusting funny for people to read so that I can make it longer . I have plans for it . This coming now is an introduction to the character of 60 pages in total . We've talked about doing less stories next year where The Norseman makes assignments that are linked to Nordic mythology .
What are his powers?
- He's Baldur's granddaughter and has received forces from there. He is super strong and virtually invincible. His " kryptonite " , or weakness, is mistletoe.
Is not there a danger that The Norseman shall be deemed to be a replica of Thor ?
- I do not know . Instead of the hammer , he has a big ax. But there are large enough differences to make people said that it's not the same thing as Marvel does.
So you have worked at DC Comics. What do you bring from there to The Norseman ?
- I did my first series of jobs there, including Batman. Many of my teachers have been working at Marvel and DC. From there , I also learned the American way of working. Shortly, I subscribe to the Dark Horse Comics ( " Hellboy " ) as well. A horror story. More than that , I can not say now.

Anyways, I am happy as long as one of you found it at least worth reading

I doubt that Kurse kills malekith, we have been told by the actors that the Epic final battle happens on earth with Thor and Malekith fighting to the death around a skyscraper in London...

Yeah but that's typical villain talk, I'll put more stock into it when the director or other cast members say something similar. I REALLY don't want to see Kurse "pummel" Thor, overpower sure but I don't want it to be "one sided". Also I'm against Kurse killing Malekith, being pummeled by Kurse AND not defeating/killing the main villain wold make Thor seem useless. I'm tired of Thor using kid gloves, it's time for the gloves to come off now that he's facing a villain he's not related too or cares about.

Oh ad did you notice the bit in the Empire article saying "Malekith going though changes since they shot, escalating even now and taking on new powers."

Hemsworth talks Thor!

You had to shed the muscle weight you gained for The Avengers and lose 30 pounds before you started shooting Rush. As Ron Howard puts it, "Thor could never fit in an F1 car." How did you do it?
It was pretty brutal. I've said it before, but my wife [Elsa Pataky] was pregnant at the time and I had more symptoms of a pregnant woman than she did. I was moody and hungry all the time. I understood addiction for the first time, to be honest. I immediately knew what it is like to be truly at the mercy of something. Literally, food was the last thing I thought about before I went to bed and the first think I thought about when I woke up. I ate very little protein and carbohydrates. And then I'd just run to sweat it off.

Are you getting tired of playing Thor?
No, as long as I get to squeeze in other things and do stuff in between that inspires me, which I'm managing to do. To be part of something that people love -- whether it's Thor on his own or Thor in The Avengers -- is a chance you get once in your career, if at all. I'm not going to complain about it, certainly, but it's a challenge each time you do it because you don't want to fall into just Thor, just being a two-dimensional character.
