I think if they stick with their quoted Thor resources we will have a really cool character on screen. They seem pretty impressed with Simonson's Thor and the characterization of Ultimate Thor in Ultimates 2. Not surprising given those are excellent variations of Thor.

          How much nastier? 'Well, Loki's skilled in black magic and scorcery. He's a shape-shifter and has all sorts of super powers from the dark arts. He can turn clouds into dragons, things like that.'

Thor screenwriter reveals how the character will fit into the Marvel movie universe...
Ashley Miller has talked to MTV about how Thor will fit alongside Marvel’s on-screen continuity...
This from MTV's SPLASH PAGE:-

“Our script is very firmly rooted in the Marvel film world. We were constantly looking for ways to connect Thor to the other movies and heroes, even if they were simply in passing. Part of grounding Thor in the world is grounding him in the specific, fictional world he inhabits. How many of those references and connections make it to the final product are beyond our control, but they are everywhere.”

"I’m not sure I accept the distinction between 'fantasy' and 'comic book'. Thor’ is a comic book film in that it’s based on the Marvel conception of the character as super-hero. But there are definitely some big fantasy elements working behind that. He is the God of Thunder, after all. It’s hard to approach the character without both of those things informing the work."

"Thor’s powers are godly, yes. And his zip code is a little different,” Miller continued. “But at the end of the day, he’s a man. In the comics, Odin sends him to Earth because he’s not perfect. He’s brash, arrogant. Even over-confident. We all know that guy — some of us have even been that guy. Stan Lee’s genius was to give Thor-as-hero an emotional throughline we could all relate to, and knock him down a couple of pegs … The challenge is to dramatize that and make the audience see what the fans have known and believed about the character all along.”
