    I hope Feige is confirmation enough for some. I'm sure people will still await a press release from marvel that will never come, though.

    Well, I thought Thor would be done in a modern realistic way, separate from the comic world. This is the direction these films are taking. 60's origin & situation wont work in today's society... this is 2010 basically. As I have said in Caps thread, it may be sacrilegist, but Caps & his villains origins need for the most part, stay away from WWII... there are other ways, or in this case, other modern wars that can be use to give birth to Caps & his villains origins & motivations. I just can't imagine Red Skull still pist, with the same motivations toward Cap after 70 years. I'm just saying....

    However, what really caught my eye in the movieblog Q&A, was the discussion involving LOKI. IMO, it appear Feige was stealthy implying LOKI crossing over to maybe the Avengers film, maybe even quick cameos or name dropping in films like IM2, CA:1stAv, and/or IH2 if there is one... maybe in reference to the Mandarin "Ten Rings Saga", or controlling Hulk, etc. The LOKI comment stuck out to me... that's all I'm saying.

    I dunno, I kinda like the Donald Blake element of the character. And it's also a shame to see the fantasy setting of the first draft gone. But other than that, all good stuff here.

    For Lobo, I'd say Feige is confirmation enough. I don't need a press release from Marvel. All I wanted was someone officially involved with the project to say he's in, rather than a "Chris Hemsworth close to inking a deal" getting the Chinese whispers effect and turning into "he's already confirmed for Thor" through third-party sources. I love the enthusiasm Feige seems to have for Hemsworth, and the Jackman comparison is encouraging.

    I'm also really excited about the part where he talks about Hiddleston, and Loki's role in this film and beyond. It's cool they see Loki as their franchise villain.

    I don't think the fantasy setting is gone, just that the viking part (which I wasn't crazy about) got replaced with modern Earth.
    I hope the final result will end up better than the "Masters of the Universe" movie.

    They took it down because it was published before the agreed date and time.
    It should appear later on several websites.
    Superhero Hype included.

    I'm not sure I follow. Thor's story is essentially him being arrogant, shortsighted ect and then being banished to earth by his Father for it. What would be so hard to fit? Same goes for Cap, he is a man out of time. First part of his movie deals with WW2 and where he came from, then we have him being discovered and released from suspended animation in our time. Whats hard to manage?

    Also, if Donald Blake won't appear in this film whats the point of introducing Jane Foster? Sif is Thor's love interest, and Natalie Portan simply isn't suited for that role.

    I'm not arguing against Thor's banishment, I'm refering to him traveling the timeline(vikings). It's not necessary. Redemption can occur in the modern.

    I never cared for Don Blake... and I always thought that the whole dynamics between him and Thor could be very confusing for the GA. They wouldn't know if Thor and Blake share the same body, same conscience, if they are two separate entities, that kind of stuff.

    And while I think Don Blake was, at some point, necessary to teach Thor a humility lesson, after Thor gains his memories back, Don becomes just another superhero cliché, that obligatory weakness/secret identity.

    Plus, he would take away a lot of Thor's screen time. :woot:

    But don't get me wrong, I don't hate the guy. I just think that Thor doesn't need him.

    Yeah, I think they will only replace his banishment in viking-era Earth with a banishment in modern times Earth.

    And I'm also worried about the "Masters of the Universe" effect. Although in that movie they never showed Eternia properly, and it seems that in the Thor movie they will show Asgard, in the first act at least (and hopefully in the third as well).

    I for one am glad that there's no Blake. The whole "Shazam!" or "By the Powers of Gray Skull" elements of Thor were always very lame for my tastes. Let Thor be Thor and that's all like in The Ultimates.

    What a great interview that was. I imagine we will be flooded with such interviews very soon since the gag order is to be lifted on all of the movie websites today(?) (or soon thereafter).

    It did appear to me that Feige was hinting at Loki in The Avengers as well. I think he would be the most logical villain to face off against them. He was their first true villain in both the original Avengers and The Ultimates. Not to mention a team up of Red Skull and Loki would be a really great plotline (and very logical considering Nazi ideology).

    I'm also glad to see that they will avoid the "fish out of water" jokes. I'd like them to keep the tone of this film rather serious. Thor doesn't strike me as particularly humorous unlike Iron Man.

    I am a little upset that more of the film will not take place in Asgard. I would have liked a more LOTR type fantasy movie film, that ends up in our world. It just would have been a nice change of pace for a superhero film.

    There are still some websites that have it up, so check around. I've always felt that the whole "Embargo" tactic was: A) Stupid and B) Pointless because there are ALWAYS sites that leak the info. It's already out and now the only sites that are missing out are the ones who actually followed the completely unnecessary, stupid, and pointless "embargo"!

    Just release the info already!
