    You know earth is getting a lot of attention for an unimportant realm that no one takes seriously or thinks interesting....

    Oh but people DID know who and about WHEN the cube came.
    The book Erik picks up in the Library SHOWS the Cube in Odin's hand as he's coming down the Bifrost.

    I don't have the Screen capture (I'm at work without the dvd), but in the Library, Erik opens the Norse myths book and there is a drawing of Odin and a few warriors coming down the Bifrost, and in his hand there is the tesseract.
    If THAT is drawn in the book then SOMEONE had to know they brought something to Earth. the question is was it before or AFTER the Joutans attacked the Vikings?

    Its a common trope. Earth in si-fi is a planet with primitive life and in cosmic scale is unimportant BUT at the same time it is the one that becomes the most important thing in the universe because its inhabitants, no matter how primitive they are, will save that universe in the end. And human protagonist will get to bang the most beautiful alien girl because he is soooo special (yep the same as Thor/Jane but in reverse). Its human arrogance - we are the best in universe and our planet is most important -the end. I may hate it with passion - but like you said - most audience need this trope to relate.

    Maybe thats why the Joutans were attacking the Vikings! Or maybe I missed something in the beginning of Thor...

    I do not think so - why do you think Starlord will be so cool and what maces him sooo special? He is half-HUMAN- a child of so romantic star crossed cross species love - its the hunt half that will make him grate- wait and see=).

    Oh thank goodness, I was getting worried there. The talking raccoon and weird tree guy were bad enough, I don't think the camel's back could take a main hero named Starlord.

    I am not even close to joking. And believe me, the rest of the GA will be thinking the same thing.

    Awesome! Look you can even see Thor behind him having apparently taken fashion tips from Superman in the underwear department. It's amazing how much detail they put in these movies you don't notice until a while later.

    When everyone and their mother loves Rocket, it is going to be great to remember these statements.

    I'm not saying I'm never going to like him, I'm saying it'll take a bit of convincing to get people like my mother to watch it when she sees a raccoon with a gun.

    It is a very simply formula. Cute, cuddly, vulgar.

    Oh, and I wouldn't call him a raccoon to his face. :o

    What's there to convince!?

    You said it yourself. A raccoon and a gun. Ticket immediately sold!

    The fact that he has a larger than life personality along with being completely short fused only adds to the awesome.

    I'm hoping the trailer will be awesome when it comes out because my mom isn't good at stuff like that. I told her there was a Thor forum online and I was reading it and she said 'there's a forum for Thor?' and I had to explain to her that there is a forum for everything and she gave me this look like, 'oh, they must be special'. She doesn't handle things outside of her 'normal' well.

    I'm a fan of comic characters of all stripes... But come on people! Rocket is cool but the mass audience may balk big time, and that's not some unfounded fear, it's quite reasonable. It may be a bridge too far.

    That being said, IF Rocket is a hit then chances are good that Beta Ray Bill will get some big screen love in the future.

    Krypton! *hugs* I knew you would understand where I was coming from!

    Also, I'm open to the raccoon, I'm not totally sold on horse face :dry:
