My hopes are
Thor wears a comic accurate Costume at least once in the film.

A Great Strength or Power feat!

Better Fight Scenes!

Just an overall great film!

I am naively expecting it to drastically surpasses the horrible Jason Aaron run that it is heavily borrowing story elements from.

I am expecting a highly enjoyable romp with epic action sequences, though no real strength feats (alas I believe that Thor's physical abilities will remain ambiguous in the MCU).
Jane Thor will doubtless have impressive power showings out of deference to the source material (and the Woke sensibilities that are par for the course), but Waika will not short change Hemsworth whose charisma will be given free reign.
Sadly, while the MCU tends to emphasise the overall power quotient and significance of characters like Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch (not to mention Captain Marvel), and ensures that characters such as Shang Chi, Cap and Spidey are portrayed to their fullest possible potential, Thor is likely to remain a highly durable viking-alien with a magical hammer, pretensions of mythic grandeur, a charismatic swagger, and a colourful supporting cast. His untapped godly/cosmic reservoirs of awesome power will remain unknown to the GA, and ironically (in light of comic book history), he will likely never be depicted with sufficient gravitas or authority to suggest he might be a serious candidate to lead the Avengers.
These misgivings aside, I expect a most entertaining movie.

I think it will bomb, unfortunately.

I have no idea of what to expect from the movie. I hope it does not lean Aaron style but since the material comes almost exclusively from his run and Marvel/Disney declared it the best of all time I am not optimistic on that count. However the director has apparently demanded some creative control and since he wasn't fired that is a good sign. TDW movie was so fraught with company demanded changes the movie we saw was not the intended one at all. The director plainly said so during at least one occasion.

I would not mind seeing Beta Ray Bill but that stretches the movie out to probably three hours run time and that is not going to happen. The costume is not something that concerns me. Strength and power feats I would like to see in the IW mode. Fight scenes are important but not Thor vs. Jane because we can be sure how that would pan out. Gorr will be very important and one that has to stick the landing. Script and character has to be finely tuned or we end up with a Malikath from DW. I am pretty sure this will be the final Thor we see any version of unless he turns up in the loki show. I do not want to see him go out a loser or dead. There are a lot of factors to get right for this to work but I think it is doable and Waititi may be one of the few to pull it off. I add that I liked his Thor Ragnarok movie so others may not see him in quite the same fashion.

My big concerns would be that jane beats up Thor, Gorr ends up killing him off now!

Just so long as he's not abused and traumatised like your boy, Supes, who was Colonel Koslov's plaything for 8 months.

I forgot Zeus will be in the movie. Maybe he will play the Old King Thor role. Then you have young Thor(Jane) Our Thor, and Zeus to fill the trilogy of the run.

First of all, I think this will be Chris Hemsworth's last time playing Thor. He has said in interviews that it will most likely be his last, and that he thinks he will not be asked again... So, this movie could be a "passing of the torch" to Jane Foster. I think it's a huge mistake on Marvel Studios part, but, whatever, it is what it is...

Anyway, be that as it may, if this will be the last real Thor story (Jane Foster as "thor" will never get any support from me), I hope Thor's major arc about becoming King of Asgard, which began from the very first movie (Thor's first scene was supposed to be his coronation), to finally come to pass and realized. I hope Asgard will be revived and Thor assumes his role as the protector of all the 9 realms. Let Jane be his protector of Earth.

What I fear may happen....either, Thor dies after battling Gorr....or he survives, continues his adventures in space, leaves New Asgard and Earth forever.

That he is willing to play Thor forever!
But isn't sure everyone will want that and thinks they may be tired of him playing the role!
So if it's up to him...he'll be playing Thor forever.
Which is okay by me so long as the script is right.
That or just make an ongoing Thor series not a mini series but an ongoing one like Hercules the legendary Journeys!
Hell I'm sure Taika would Direct that and most the cast would be up for it.
I would absolutely love a series where he goes and rights wrongs in the 9 worlds!

...He just said in his recent interviews that this will probably be his last, and he feels like Marvel wants to replace him

Killed off? That's fine...as long as he is not bent over, and dudes sticking rods up his tushy while he is made to look at his captor for 8 months. Thank goodness for powerless Bat-dude to save the most powerful DC guy from all that rape torture!

Just think that he will be set up to die by Gorr, jane defeats Gorr, and everything all ok then!

Yep, out with the last remaining white male, and have him replaced by Jane!

I mean filling that role. Plus when has actor's age been a factor in fantasy/comic book movies?

My hope is that it will be the best Thor movie ever. My expectations however, based on how it went for Star Wars, Loki, Matrix and many more is something like this:

-Jane teaches Thor his place.
-Jane teaches Thor what is right and wrong.
-Thor is beaten by Gorr.
-Mjolnir likes Jane
-Jane beats Gorr
-Thor acts dumb and insecure through the whole movie and tries to joke it off.

Hopefully this doesn't come to pass.

Uh, what? He tossed a spaceship that Rocket was flying and dislodged/moved several miles-long rings surrounding a neutron star. That's a pretty big strength feat. Has there been a bigger strength feat in the MCU?

Uh, what? Thor has displayed awesome power. He leveled Jotunheim, he destroyed a floating Sokovia and survived its explosion, he endured "the full power of a star" for "minutes" to forge Stormbreaker, he all but beat the Hulk without Mjolnir, he practically singlehandedly saved the Avengers when Thanos' forces were overwhelming them, and Thor very nearly killed Thanos while he had the full power of the Infinity Gauntlet.

Based on photos, that's not likely going to be the case.

Given how Thor looked in Ragnarok and Infinity War, this looks promising.

Hopefully.

If nothing else, it should at least be pretty funny.
