UK wants them to use his script(s).

From what I recall they are really well developed. Form a multi movie arc that could become a franchise. And not too surprisingly are meticulously planned.

When you have a vision that clear and full it is very hard to tolerate any other version. Particularly when it doesn't seem as truly or lovingly created.

Good luck UK. I hope your stuff gets produced.

That said.

I don't care that Thor's journey into mystery origins included Don Blake. They also featured a Thor with pipe stem arms who looked like a refugee from the Hanson's. Anorexic Thor went away and so should Don.

I found the classic Don Blake boring. Dual identities were a convention of the sixties whose time has passed. If I want to see a lovesick Doctor I will watch Gray's Anatomy. 5 minutes of script with him will be 5 minutes I spend at the concession stand.

To learn humility Odin could send Thor to Earth stripped of his powers and he could battle a powerful foe without all his abilities ala his early encounter with Herculese. In fact a variation on Thor's journey to Pluto's realm (no it doesn't have to be Pluto it could be Hela or just some similar situation) would be great for proving him worthy to reclaim the hammer and his godhood. Much more interesting and NO DON BLAKE.

Thor's mother is Earth - he doesn't need anything else to tie him to us.

Thor was the greatest warrior of the Gods (including Tyr) so he would stand out if all of Asgard showed up in a football stadium dressed identically.

Anyone who thinks the Lord of the Rings has anything to do with this movie getting made is 100% CORRECT and we should cannonize Peter Jackson. If I have a choice between an Aragonesque Thor or NO THOR at all - and that IS the choice, I will take Aragonothor and smile.

So, a little sweet a little sour.

Well, that's stating the obvious.

His scripts/ideas would be far better suited for an animated series... and I'm being fairly kind in saying that too. Considering the questionable amount of "movies" he has planned, I'd say you'd be better off cutting them up into 26 episodes over at least 3-4 TV seasons.

To even think of them as being outright, Hollywood made movies is, I'm sorry, absolutely ridiculous.

> When you have a vision that clear and full it is very hard to tolerate any other version. Particularly when it doesn't seem as truly or lovingly created.

I do agree on that last point 100%... speaking from personal experience, elsewhere, that is.
