Too bad they couldn't just end the film with Thor's reunion with Jane on Earth, and have the second post-credit scene tease about Surtur or the next big bad within Thor's realms.

Kyle/Yost are good writers, but TDW was nowhere near their best work. The actual plot/story wasn't really all that interesting and it was bare bones. To be fair, I'm not sure if that was completely their fault, this movie felt like it started out as something a bit more complex, but go messed with during editing. Hopefully, the next movie has an actual compelling story/ideas. Oh and more character building for people not named Loki.

I have been accused of being a biased Marvel fanboy on many occasions despite repeatedly voicing my many complaints, but this endless trimming down of every single film has sailed right past annoying and directly into into ****ING STOP IT!!!

All the way back to Incredible Hulk they've been cutting good quality scenes out of these movies. Enough is enough.
Yeah, that work's to. Make the movie a half-hour longer and you can keep the comedy while leaving in the character stuff to. I was simply trying to suggest how they could have kept the same running time and fit the character stuff in at the same time. But you're right, there was no reason why this movie HAD to be UNDER two hours long, especially with all the stuff that was going on.

You know, Lorelei is showing up soon in Agents of SHIELD. I do wonder if that could be a hint that The Enchantress may finally appear in Thor 3?

With recent news I am willing to bet Thor 3 gets the July 2016 date.A new character most likely Dr strange gets the may 2016 date although it could be pushed up to april with Batman VS Superman coming In may and If Cap 2 does well this april.Cap 3 Is my bet for July 2017.Marvel and Disney might have another new character for late 2017 before avenges 3 hits In 2018.

To me TDW felt like one giant Thor-centric EMH episode...which is why I loved it.

Way to early for Ragnarok, especially after what happened with TDW, but that won't stop them. This is going to end up feeling like Thor: The Cliff Notes.

Give me a minute guys....

It's great news that writing is starting. I wouldn't mind seeing the fourth movie set up Ragnarök, if nothing else but to make sure there's a fifth, but on the other hand it could in a way be a step down to have Enchantress and Executioner follow Malekith and Kurse. Not that it really matters if it's a step down as long as it's done well and is relevant to the hero.

TeeKay's quote above does sound very interesting since I enjoy the thought of AoU setting up something big for Thor.

Really beginning to look like AOU will be the springboard for Thor 3 in 2016...
This could be huge...
I really look for Thor to shine in AOU...
The term Big Guns will be taken to a new level...

EDIT: I put this in spoiler tags just in case.

I just don't see the likely hood of Drew McWeeny's article regarding Asgard in AoU. Reasoning below:

Obviously, I don't have all the info that the McWeeny has, but I don't see the logic in his prediction of a war between Midgard and Asgard. Ultron instigating Asgard just seems unlikely.

Here's a quote from another part of the article:

Quote:
By the end of the film, the team that we saw in the first film will be shattered. There will still be a group of people called The Avengers, but it's not going to be Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, and Captain America anymore. The third film will have to bring everyone back together to stand against Thanos as he finally makes his move on Earth
That whole "Age of Ultron" shattering the Avengers has me wondering.

What could Ultron do to each of the Avengers?
IM is already in semi-retirement, and if his involvement in Ultron's creation is true, I could see some sort of internal conflict there.
I could see Cap hanging up the costume if SHIELD has a part in the creation of Ultron, too (or, as someone else suggested, they could set up a "Death of CA" storyline).
I could see Ultron launching Hulk into space to set up a TIH sequel if "Planet Hulk" is way they want to go.

But Thor? Where is he most vulnerable right now? Jane Foster, for whom he left the Realm Eternal (unknowingly) in the hands of his brother. What if Ultron kills Jane, which sets up Thor returning to Asgard because he has no more interest in Midgard/he's bitter at man's folly/whatever, thus setting up Thor 3 with Thor spending some time away from Earth before Avengers 3?

He's not saying Ultron would, he pretty explicitly implied it would be Loki instigating it disguised as Odin, maybe using something that happened in AOU as a catalyst to/justification for it...which makes sense, Loki hates Midgard and he would obviously try to destroy it with all the might of Asgard disguised as Odin.

Yep all that. But what about Ragnok though? How will all that fit?

Maybe it's that storyline when Surter invading Earth. I forgot the issues though.

Yeah, I see that now. I'm still not crazy about the idea, though. Loki leading an invasion of earth is pretty redundant, isn't it? Thor's source material has so much more to offer.

the invasion of Earth might not be the focus, and it's the spin of it being Thor and Asgard doing it that makes it different.
