Hello there! \:\-\)

Even when Marvel have stated they want to cash in on the fantasy revival of Lord of the Rings thus making the Thor movie Asgard-centric.

> (but then again, none of his 'arguments' hold any water whatsoever),

Lets examine those arguments then...

> especially with this revelation that Walt was inspired by said books.

Hardly a revelation, many have known it for years.

Added to which even Walt said he would retain Asgard for the sequel if he were to write a Thor movie script.

Next?

Oh please. Lord of the Rings is pretty much 'old meme' in Hollyweird these days. I can't say I recall a single big budget fantasy movie being out since 'Chronicles of Narnia' (don't mention "Stardust", since that was, by all accounts, a flop). If there's a LotR bandwagon like you're claiming there to be, I sure as hell don't see it anymore.
