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.

"Protosevich focuses his story on Asgard and Midgard... When Loki's scheming leads to Thor being banished from Asgard, he must forget his vanity, find Mjolnir, and make his way home."

Clearly, he's banished to Earth without Mjolnir, in the first movie... but AS THOR.

> then it poops over so much continuity that you may as well call it Ultimate Thor.

So Spider-Man's was given organic webbing by the spider-bite, Xavier was crippled by Magneto rather than an obscure alien supervillain, Dr Doom was hit by cosmic rays and Bruce Banner was hit with nanobots as a kid in the comics?

Movie adaptations don't use the comics continuity. They take aspects of the comics - good and bad - and mix in their own stuff. Same deal, indeed, as Ultimate.
