TDW had a bigger final event than TA. In TA only New York with later possibly the world was in danger. In TDW EVERYTHING in existence was under threat, yet it never felt that way because the humour and lightness of it all meant there were no stakes. TA didnt have that problem for me.

As for the bolded, I thought that was great to.



I have no problem with people having a differing opinion, its been quite obvious from the start we werent going to agree on this .





In Thor 1 I loved the earth scenes, some of the best moments of the movie happened on Earth, here, some Earth scenes were good in TDW, but the final battle wasnt IMO.





I think of the two movies TDW needs a DC or EE more, but it would be good to get one for both. Dont know why Marvel are afraid of making a Thor movie over 2 hours. If a Superman or Batman movie can be 2 and a half hours long, Thor can be over 2 hours easily.





I just hope for Thor 3 they get their act together early on and have a clear vision with a director they let do his thing.

As for WS you will see my rating in my sig when I see it, it sounds like its finally something different from Marvel as well as a good movie, so I think I will enjoy it a lot.
I agree with you on the low runtime and lack of a clear direction. I think the death of Don Payne May have been a large factor in both instances. There was what, five or six credited writers credited, and the film really reflects that. Not to mention scenes Fiege or Taylor added in. Definitely felt like there were too many cooks in the kitchen; no singular or clear vision as a result.

As for the runtime, I wouldn't be surprised if Marvel axed most of the Malekith scenes and Jane in Asgard scenes because the film wasn't going anywhere until the elf invasion. The first act felt meandered as it was and included more than enough exposition and backstory without them. The Malekith and jane in Asgard scenes could have dragged the first act of the film to an unbelievably tedious level.

Stumbling would be making something bad. They just haven't hit home runs on every movie. Some were just singles/doubles. Which is fine.

That said, Thor 3 should seek to be more epic. Thor: The Dark World being the fun middle chapter is fine, but Thor 3 needs that epic element. I think post-AoU, we need Cap 3, Thor 3, and any potential IM4 or Hulk 2 to be epic.
Man I agree with you.I still do not get what si SO wrong with this movie,it is so enjoyable for me.

I agree with this. When it comes to the MCU in general I think their lowest level is still high up and not only do I really like all of them, I find them all to be very rewatchable movies as most, if not all, even become better with repeated viewings.

As for Thor 3 it would certainly be nice if they made it really epic, both in scope and power level. I think Taylor absolutely nailed the look and feel of Asgard and it's people so they just need to stand on that and build higher.

I think Marvel has managed to showcase each of the characters very well except for Thor. I was expecting big battles and epic powers from Thor but was severely disappointed. In interviews and featurettes they would go on about how they wanted to showcase more of what Thor could actually do and they made him even more toned down than in his first movie. Thor has yet to top the fight scene in Jotunheim and we all know he is capable of so much more.

While I did enjoy the movie I think it fell very flat in terms of stepping up the Thor franchise. They need to drop Kat Dennings, work on the relationship or drop it all together for a shot at Sif, and make him and his world feel epic. There are nine realms but all we see are asgardians walking around. Where are the dwarves, elves (not dark elves), trolls and other creatures??

They should get Jason Aaron to write the next film, he just gets Thor... SURTUR!!

Just needed to get that off my chest lol

I liked it alot, my only problem was the way they Had the Dark elves talking in their own tongue when it was Just the dark elves talking to each other. I can see the first few scenes dubbed but after that what's the point?

Everything Else to ME was awesome. Asgard looked AMAZING

There's only one way to solve that problem as a real Thor fan. You must learn everything they say by heart!

See I didn't mind that. What I did mind was that they overdid it with the Earth scenes. Darcy, her intern, and Selving could have been cut and it really wouldn't have bothered me at all. Actually it would have made the movie better. Loki provided enough laughs as is.

Other than that though I loved it. Probably my second favorite Marvel film after Avengers.

Out of curiosity, does anyone here remember when the first set of information was released for this film regarding on how Thor was supposedly going to go around the Nine Realms to gather up a army in order to take on the Dark Elves?

I mean was that just rumors or an actual set of info released by Marvel?

Either way, when i think about things now, it would have been great to see that concept executed.

When I think about it now, if I had things my way, I would have had the Dark Elves awaken prior to the Aether being reactivated, and them being the ones to have established and brought up the Maruders and their attacks across the nine realms.

This would have all been a part of their plan to weaken Asgard's hold over the nine realms since they know that they couldn't go up against Asgard directly, and in their prime, with their current numbers.

This film also would have been the perfect time to establish some of Thor's Earth bound rogues, perhaps the Wrecking Crew, who would have been given powers by the Dark Elves as part of their plan mentioned above.

If it were at all possible, I still would have brought in Hawkeye as a major character in this film and broaden his character a bit.

The film would be at least 2 Hours and 12-20 minutes long, and rather than spending time with Marcy and company, or on Loki as much, I would have had Thor going around the nine realms and gathering a army of individuals made up from the 9 realms, with Hawkeye being included...perhaps after Odin falls into grief from the loss of Frigga, and thus no longer provides any reasonable aid to Thor or anyone else outside of Asgard.

And I would have definitely kept in the original ending of Thor summoning Lightning from all throughout the nine realms, via portals, as being the reason on how he could defeat Malekith who would have been powered up by the Aether. I also would have preferred if they established that Bor was the one that killed most of Malekith's people, and his family, as a way of making the character more layered.

That was a rumor, All I recall was they Marvel
(Feige) said Thor would be going to other realms, and he/they never said how many.
The only place it was suggested that someone took Armies to other Realms was the Prequel Comic and it was TYR that left to fight.
In the Young readers book Thor says to Sif he came back from a few worlds when he reach Vanaheim, one realm he wasted Trolls

I still wonder why Marvel wanted to make Earth so prominent for Thor's films when they seemingly have no problem with making the vast cosmos the majority setting for Guardians of the galaxy.

Seems like Earth/Midgard is at the center of the Asgardian Realms AND the Yggdrasil Nebula yet compared to the rest we're the least powerful at this point

Nope but does MARVEL really treat these guys that bad that they want out ? These movies put most of these guys on the map & should finish out their contracts

Doubt it, but I believe with the success of TDW his agent is working hard to up his salary in Thor 3..
He or She would not be worth their salt if they did not try...

He's just trying to increase his salary. I wouldn't worry about him actually leaving until after Avengers 3.

Yeah didn't think anything of it really, since he tried once before
Apparently once Evan's amount of films are done, he's done.
