    Oh, I didn't realize that you're a marketing genius. Why don't you call up Marvel with all of your brilliant marketing ideas and let them know just how bad of a job they're doing. :whatever:

    Marvel pays marketers big bucks to do what they do best. So how about you just can it, hey? You're predicting the movie will fail, so why are you still here? Why don't you just take your ridiculous pessimism and leave?

    It´s good that you express you concern, a true fan you are ThorOdinSon!

    I think Marvel got this one under control tho, and that phase 2 will be sucessfull. Don´t worry about that. I guarantee Thor TDW will reach the "acceptable" level of profit.
    Can someone explain to me about the trailer things, I don´t understand what that´s all about tbh?

    At this point... no it's not. All he does is express concern. Not even valid concern. He's getting into Alexei territory.

    Hey, remember it´s not about him having a hard time to believe it might go down differently. He knows that there could be sucess. It´s just that he believes that it´s more likely to fail if they don´t "focus" more on Thor, which he obviously is a big fan of.

    It´s more about him being new to discussion at this forum (35 posts). He wants to make a point and get some confirmation. Do you think I gave up because Rock Sexton gave me hard time (with logical reasons ofc) when I suggested that there might be Widow Bucky romance flashback. Or when we "fought" over the IG pictures and theories.

    He doesn´t know exactly where the line goes or how to drop things and move on even if you disagree when he is a newbie. To have someone partly agree would probably make him move on and start talk more about other stuff.

    You are treating him with what he deserves, not as newcommer, but as experienced member. Don´t get me wrong, someone must tell him to turn it down a notch but don´t get so "angry" because he does a little wrong. Suggestions and a nice approach usually does it.

    This is actually him toned down. His first several posts were very angry and confrontational. He then went on a sabbatical for a month until the first trailer came out and was much calmer. He's been a hit-and-run poster ever since then. It's not going to surprise me when his angry side comes out since that's how he started on here and that seems to be his personality.

    Now i remember the Kronans. I remember seeing them in the Planet Hulk movie.
    [YT]X0xseskiSKA[/YT]

    That's because the winter soldier is currently filming. It was the same way when Thor was filming and and Ironman 3 was in post production. We were getting more Thor leaks and set footage that Build up a lot of hype. Now that Thor is in post production so we aren't going to get that much until the second trailer comes out. You're just being antsy impatient. lol We all are.

    I can't suggest any Thor reading material, but personally I'd advise against Civil War if you are looking for quality. The events in Civil War admittedly had a lot of fallout for a lot of the players in its events (mainly Captain America), so it has some value as a way to orient yourself to the Marvel-verse, but that's about it. There are folks who like it though, so YMMV.

    Loki's massive Fangirl Army will fill the seats in November with or without heavy marketing. I'm not concerned.

    - Walt Simonson's run is required reading.

    - Thor the Mighty Avenger was cut tragically short, but is great reading.

    - Straczynski's Thor run is the great modern telling.

    - Thor: God of Thunder, the current run in the comics is gold.

    For my money, the best Thor has to offer.

    The torture some fans put themselves through.
    Dark World marketing will pick up come the change in weather. Thor and his story looks to be the focus given what we see in the teaser. Let's chill and have some mead ThorOdinson.

    Thor fan. Yes. Angry person. Hardly. I predicted a while back that the marketing for this movie was poor, which it has been, and people bashed me. People attacked me, and still attack me personally, when my post have always been about Thor. I could point out names, but I don't feel the need for that, because this is just a forum FOR discuss. I come on this site a lot, and though I don't always post, I do read the comments, and when I see people speak of there displeasures of Thor 2 post production, it's almost always the same reaction...bash the poster and defend Marvel. Just because Marvel has professionals on the production team, doesn't mean their fool prof. Many reasons can be the blame for this, but what is apparent is that Thor 2 is not getting that much exposure, like IM3 did, or compared to titles unreleased. My example of Hunger Games 2, following a movie that did much better then Thor, is doing an amazing job with their post marketing. Posters of main characters, interviews from actors/actress, screen art, screen shots, trailer(s), ect. Yes Hunger Games was a great movie, but the production team has made everyone excited to see it. Google Thor 2(mind you, your actually looking for new info, imagine all of the people who are not), and your going to see the same information from months ago, and fan art. Other then seeing a few toys, and talks of Thor's hand, nothing has changed much for months.

    Say what you will about me, but I'm simply observing what is going on. I love marvel, but not so much that I'm going to make excuses for it. Thor was an okay movie, that was tied to a great one. Thor the character is still very much in the dark, even after his own film, and his stand alone movie NEEDS promotion. Spiderman, Iron Man, Wolverine, and Hulk, are american favorites, if anything they don't need that much exposure. Thor is still a B lister, compared to the cast I just mentioned, and he needs the extra push. The actors should be under contract to talk Thor 2 where ever they are, and Chris Hemsworth hadn't evens seen the comic footage, which means he wasn't even prepared to discuss it with the public if asked...that's incredibly crappy. Is this movie doomed...of course not, anything can happen, but everything is pointing to this movie being a let down to Thor fans.

    This is sounding very familiar... Almost like an echo of the MOS marketing complaints. It's awhile to go before the big push for the GA comes. What we've seen is just the start of the ad campaign. Not the end. Tom's SDCC appearance and the coming 2nd trailer are not even the tip of the iceberg. There will be visibility of this film in the mass marketplace, count on it. I don't think, for a number of factors that THE DARK WORLD is expected to do IRON MAN 3 numbers, but I suspect we will all be surprised at the total BO take. MARVEL is looking to make $ for this and their track record so far indicates they DO know what they are doing.

    You weren't here when he started.

    EVERY single post of his...literally, literally every single post was an over exaggeration, regarding the lack of news. Completely unnecessary. It's all he talked about, and would disregard anyone else' valid rebuttal against it. It got wearisome, and now, that he's at it again...people have every right to be complaining

    lol it sounds a lot similar to IM3 marketing complaints for me. during the 5 months of zero news between the trailers, people were complaining about poor marketing at the IM3 boards.

    :lmao: I wonder what they consider "good marketing".

    TWS is the one that needs the most marketing. GOTG as well.

    Yeah Thor marketing will ratchet up in a couple weeks. No worries at this point. Some folks just need something to complain about.

    I figure August is where the marketing for Thor will really begin and once Thor comes our way Im sure Cap will get the same treatment starting around Thor's release just as the first trailer and marketing for Thor kinda teased around Iron Man 3's release.

    The talk of the content of the SDCC footage also has me pumped. I never even considered something like "hand gate" or the like. If we get a quick glimpse of Kurse and some of his throwdown with The Thunder God as well as a snippet of Loki interacting with Jane and Jane and Sif I will be happy as a clam at high tide.

    Do you think Jane will get to explore for the audience the fact that these beings were at some point in Earth's history worshipped as gods? As a scientist it wouldn't be out of character to be curious about that.

    Yeah Kurse scuffling with Thor, a few new shots of Thor fighting the Dark Elves and Marauder would be tops. Throw in Loki, Jane, Odin, The Warriors 3, and Sif interacting with each other and my day will officially be made.

    I'd really like to see Jane exploring The Asgardians "god hood", I also want the Asgardians to wow Jane with their super abilities.

    Yea, verily! It's not like this is your average cross cultural romance. This is meeting your boyfriend/girlrfriend's family and they're the rulers of a small country and you're heading to the motherland for the weekend..... MULTIPLIED BY A FACTOR OF 10,000!
