Thanks for the link, although his review says basically nothing.

> Again, this one says there's no Don Blake. (Thank Goodness)

This is where you (and the reviewer) err.

With no Don Blake, not only does this movie poop on the comic book origins, but it also makes several other mistakes.

Firstly, a god amongst gods is less special than a god amongst mortals.

Secondly, if this movie is a precursor to Thor on Earth (say in a sequel) then the Thor of the first movie is a bragging bully (to deserve banishment to Earth). That means Thor of this movie is no hero. In the event that they totally remove the need for Thor to be banished then it poops over so much continuity that you may as well call it Ultimate Thor.

Everything I have seen so far tells me it has nothing to do with the Mighty Thor. It may end up a decent Thor movie, just not a decent Mighty Thor movie - and thats a shame.

> Sounds pretty good so far, IMHO.

No it sounds like a Lord of the Rings bandwagon jumping, 'Galactus cloud' cop-out that has nothing to do with the Mighty Thor and is simply just Thor.

> Firstly, a god amongst gods is less special than a god amongst mortals.

I rather enjoy the thought of Thor adventuring with Sif, Balder, and the Warriors Three, as mentioned.

I think Thor was still a hero to the realm of Asgard before his banishment, otherwise he wouldn't be worthy to carry Mjolnir.

Honestly, I would LOVE to see a Thor movie done in the Lord of the Rings style. The warriors of Asgard battling the Frost Giants, or Surtur's forces, in an epic fantasy-style battle would be great!

That being said, I'd like the movie to end with Thor being sent to Earth, leading into an Avengers movie. If they establish Cap, Thor, and Iron Man ahead of time (and we know Iron Man will be for sure), they can jump straight into an Avengers movie without spending the whole time introducing the characters. They'd have to introduce a couple more Avengers, but the Big 3 who the movie would most likely revolve around would already be established.
