Discussion in 'Thor' started by louiebling$, Jun 5, 2009.
I think that interview was conducted immediately after he was turned down.
LOL.... yeah, I kinda got that impression too.
Umm.. someone needs to tell Clifton that Asgardians aren't 'Celtic' gods. They're actually Norse/Scandinavian.
I"m getting kinda' excited about Thor. I went out and picked up a few issues of the comic. Have to say I'm a little confused about some stuff. (Loki was man...turned woman? But got to go back to his normal form to go back in time?)
But after hearing my grandma mention KB and how shakespeare he was. I'm getting the impression this should be a good film.
The gods all died and then Thor came back (gods are notoriously hard to really, truly kill) by re-bonding with his human side, Dr. Donald Blake. He set out to resurrect his fellow gods, whose spirits had drifted into human bodies. Unknown to Thor, while the gods' spirits were drifting in oblivion, Loki (who, as a powerful sorcerer, has plenty of experience as a disembodied spirit on the astral plane) pulled a switcheroo: he sent Sif's spirit to an old, dying lady's body and put his own spirit in the body that Sif's spirit would have inhabited. When Thor found that body and restored what he thought would be Sif, it turned out to be Sif's body inhabited by Loki's spirit.
Loki just recently gave up Sif's body to her spirit, which Thor found at last, and returned to his own body. Of course, he spun the whole incident so it looked like he was an innocent victim caught up in the messy business of divine resurrections and he didn't know any better.
Not a set pic but screencaps can be pulled from this recent video of Hemsworth testing out project natal. There seems to be a total lack of recent pics of this guy. Anyways not a Thor video but it gives us a more recent look of him.
Also keep in mind Loki has always been a Shape shifter and a bit odd. Fernis the wolf is his SON as well as the Midgard Serpent. So being a female Asgardian wouldn't really be all that big of a surprise to the Asgardians.
That part is actually backed up by the real mythology.
Shame they didn't have any big announcements ready to go for this year's Comic Con, but that's some good information. 30% in the present doesn't sound too bad. I'm glad the majority will still be in ye olde Norse times.
30% is alot to be honest.... that's nearly a third of the film. Or, in a 2hr film, approx. 38 minutes will be in the modern era.
Thor has one foot in each world, so that's fair. I prefer seeing him in Asgard, though, so the slightly uneven split in the film works for me.
I do too, glad KB is taking the approach he is taking.
Which is fine. He should be fully established in the modern world before Avengers.
1/3 on the modern world and Natalie Portman is Jane Foster.
Hmm... I don't think they will show Nat near the end of the film. I smell a flashback or memory recollection in the plot.
^ Agreed... I am just wondering what split the other 70% will be between Asgard and the Dark ages on Midgard. So will we only see about 38 mins in Asgard, and 38 mins in 9th or 10th century Scandanavia... and then the 38 mins in modern times on Earth???
That's a good point
Maybe we'll just have Asgard and the present. I wouldn't mind that at all. Why Thor has to be stuck in the dark ages on Earth is beyond me. Asgard's already basically like the dark ages on Earth in terms of the constant struggling to survive against invasions and such.
A new announce is near...
You are basing this on what exactly?
Carlo has posted cryptic stuff like that before and is usually spot-on. I'd take his word for it
hmmm wonder what this will be?!
Whenever Carlo Comicus makes these cryptic remarks, it reminds me of this:
