    I don't know about Thanos, but I think Surtur is going to be a big part of this movie actually, without even appearing on screen. Even if we don't see him, I'd bet that he'll be name dropped multiple times, then a possible credit scene.

    Look at Odin's narration though. Odin is wise, Loki may have experienced the darkness. But Odin KNOWS that before the universe, there was darkness, how?


    What if Surtur is trapped? Odin was the one who trapped him. Given the two characters history in the comics, if Surtur is indeed trapped, it wouldn't be far fetched to guess, and well, flat out assume Odin is the one who trapped him. Perhaps long ago, maybe that's what the dark elves and asgardians previous fallout was about.

    If Odin trapped Surtur somehow, then he would most definitely be the only one to know about it.

    Malekith being the big bad of the movie, I almost see him essentially worshiping Surtur, or perhaps the dark elves worship him as the god he is, Malekith is a follower of his?

    I am just not a fan of messing with the solo films to service the next big team up. If it is organic, like Thor, that is great. If it isn't, like IM2, not so great.

    It's one freaken picture of Kurse. And it's dark. And grainy. And you can't really make much out because blowing the screenshot up too much will distort the image. I'm sure Kurse will look just fine and everyone can be happy he's in the movie and he looks the way he's "supposed" to.

    If he is hanging out with Maleketh sure. But then that's giving context to the character. Without context though I wouldn't really know.

    I mean if you made him hang out with the Enchantress, I'd guess he was the Executioner rather than Kurse.

    It doesn't look grainy. Someone posted a hi-res shot of it blown up. You can see that kept the essence of the character without a 100% literal translation.

    I thought it was interesting, but didn't really tell us anything we didn't know beyond his plan that carries into 2021, which is great.

    Although, did you enjoy his discussion on how Disney lets them do their own thing? I thought you might.

    This film really has a Walt Simonson feel. That is a very good thing imo. Wonder if we will see that Mjolnir always comes back.:woot:

    More lies.

    Ya, the huge guy with amour weird bones coming out of his head/mask and hanging out with Malekith would not trigger a "Hmmm that's probably Kurse" .... please name me another character in Thor's comic history who fit's that profile.

    I disagree. I'll repeat what I said earlier, if I didn't follow the MCU, and didn't know the Villains, I would see that part of the trailer, rewind it, and pause, look at him and say, son of a *****, that's Kurse.

    But we don't know if Thor was even referring to Thanos.

    Why would Malekith talk about Thanos? The immediate threat is Malekith, possibly Thanos is the one pulling his strings. How would Heimdal, and Thor know this enemy is Thanos? I think Malekith's plans are to release Surtur, and he probably makes that clear. This enemy, Surtur, the one who is going to bring back the darkness, or whatever, would be THE threat.

    It's gotta be Odin, knowing about Surtur. There is no reason for Heimdal and Thor to be talking about Thanos. Unless he shows up in the movie. Which I doubt he will, this movie probably won't be Thanos heavy.

    Well, if they are referring to Surtur there rather than the Dark Elves; then, yes, it is definitely referring to Odin.

    Once again you fail to read my post.

    "If he is hanging out with Maleketh sure. But then that's giving context to the character. Without context though I wouldn't really know."

    Which is fine, but for me not really.

    Someone has to release Malekith.

    I'll post it again for reference

    Yes he differs, but as you said, and as I have been trying to say (but worded poorly) the essence of the character is there. I mean, hell the shoulders arms, and chest, the torso LOOKS like his torso, that whole football shoulder pad thing he's had going on

    What has their relative sizes got to do with how imposing and powerful they are? Thor himself is also much smaller than the Kronan, yet he was able to reduce it to rubble with one blow, as you noted. One would assume that Kurse is similarly more powerful than the Kronan. Or is size everything now?

    Quit separating the comments.

    A guy hanging out with Malekith who fits the physical description of Kurse based on size, armor, and horns.

    If you knew anything of Thor's history you'd put 2 and 2 together. Instead you're just carrying on in stubborn fashion trying to play oblivious. Next you'll probably tell me you wouldn't know that was Malekith out there because he's not rocking a heavy metal haircut.

    They AREN'T referring to the Dark Elves. Because it's been said ( in the synopsis I believe) the Asgardians have had a fallout with the Dark Elves in the past. Which means they would be known about.

    The enemy Thor and Heimdal are speaking of MUST be either the leader, Malekith, or Surtur, assuming he is trying to release him.

    You're still dead wrong. Mass x speed = force and the human body can't generate enough speed to make it's mass even come close to the force of a bullet. Hell a baseball going 95mph will hit with more force than any punch. Now if the Flash were real he could hit with more force than a bullet because of the speed of the punch but not a real person.
