    I agree, but that should be saved for Thor 3, just like IM being pushed to him limits was saved for IM3.

    Really? You would want to wait to see Thor REALLY cut loose? I am just about ready for it now I'd say.

    Well, ever since seeing "Thor 1", I've kind of foregone the whole mentality when it comes to "saving things" for the future route.lol

    I mean, one can definitely argue that the scale of the action shown in "Thor" was held back due to the fact that they were saving for the bigger invasion arc in "The Avengers".

    Maybe the villains in "Thor 2" can be presented as to being Thor's first real challenge on screen in the MCU, with Surtur being more like the person that no one would think Thor could overcome at first when presented in "Thor 3".

    Plus, imho, something like Iron Man 3 should have been shown in Iron Man 2 since we could go all the way back to mentioning on how Iron Man 2 really didn't go as far as they could have when it came to development of the character in certain ways.

    I mean, look at how Heath's Joker pushed Batman in The Dark Knight...and that was extreme, but they were able to find a new form of extreme with Bane in the third film of the franchise. I think we could go for something like that in Thor 2 and 3.

    It wasn't specifically getting kicked around by Thor, it was the whole ordeal of The Avengers, right up to flying through a hole in the sky to the other side of the universe and seeing with his own eyes a big alien army.

    They've already referenced it in the trailers. "Nothing's been the same since New York", "...why can't I sleep".

    I think it had more to do with the fact he almost died that would hit him harder.

    I kind of hope that we get to see scenes like Thor supervising the Asgardian soldiers during their regular drills on Asgard, and even seeing things like Thor having a sparring match with some of the Asgardians, namely the warriors three. It'd be a great way of showing as well on what Asgardian hand-to-hand combat is like.

    touche! Thor should be handled with care by Marvel. Downey is great, but not getting any younger. Thor could very well become a money producing machine as big as Iron Man i f handled well, and the potential is already there. In terms of raw comicbook superhero status, he has been diminished for many reasons by Marvel,( look at AvX. They will never get more money from me), but remains in all discussions of who's who? And he is not only arguably Marvel's, if not everybodies, most capable and powerfull superhero, but also quite capable of transcending the fandom barrier and opening the arena for more women to become fans, ( as evidenced by the reaction of many women iknow). I really want a badass movie with a lot of grounded stuff and a major showing by Thor that highlights his incredible power, vulnerabilities and humanity, if you can call it that way.Crossing fingers.!

    By pushed to his limits I meant, almost dying and I don't want to see The God of Thunder almost dying in two films.

    So either they can put it in Thor:TDW or Thor 3, but not both he is Thor for goodness sakes not Spider-Man.

    That would be epic, but I highly highly highly doubt they would include that since Asgardians as depicted as being weapon heavy.

    Rush should have a good audience in Europe and South America. Not sure how well an F1 movie will do in the U.S, but hopefully it will do reasonable figures there solely based on the Hemsworth and Ron Howard input.

    I'm good with his size, I'm more worried about his strength feats.

    What's the point of a superhero being super beefed up if they don't do anything with it.

    I'll probably download the movie, doubt I'd see it in theaters. But it does look interesting and I love sports type movies. (Idk if we can call F1 a 'sport' in the states) I personally can't wait to see the Jackie Robinson movie, but that's something that I see anyone outside of the US not caring about, which is a shame since he did so much for the sport.

    I keep telling myself that Thor is going to have those insane feats of strength in this movie. I hope I'm not let down but I'm also okay with how he and his strength have been portrayed so far, he for sure isn't a little league hitter. Cap is the one I want to see much, much more out of athletically and skill wise, and it seems like they are trying to showcase his skills in his movie so I hope they're doing the same with Thor. I need more than hammer throws and extended lightning summoning, I want like lightning charged hammer hits and even to see his full strength without the hammer being involved. Pick up something that looks almost impossible to move with almost no noticeable strain and throw that stuff like it means nothing!

    That being said, Thor2 is probably my most anticipated movie, running close with GotG, because Thor1 was my favorite Phase 1 movie. It was so different compared to the others and I hope Thor2 adds onto that.

    Guys, I think the bigger question we should all be asking ourselves is whether or not Chris has cut his locks yet considering he's done filming Thor 2.

    Well in this article from USA Today Chris H. said that Thor is going to elevate his fighting style to cope with the increased threats. He said Thor shouldn't only be throwing his hammer like a viking, he said Thor's a demigod and he should fight using dynamic moves.

    I smiled so hard when I read that, because that's just the stuff we wete hoping for as Thor fans. :highfive:

    It's great he can sculpt his body to suit whatever role he has next. It must be a pain in the ass, but it's a well paid job, so good luck to him.
