    Rather than go lord of the rings they went x-files. Yet they have frost giants and trolls. The end result is a lack of a clear and distinct identity or cultural hook.

Meh, you can make that sort of thing work just fine still. Aliens and random energies would still fit ok as far as I am concerned. I like the magic angle more but I guess they thought it was harder to swallow for a general audiance they are going for.

    Perhaps they can pull a transformers with it although, let's face it, the Destroyer blowing up cars in a small town is hardly epic.

I hope it is much better than Transformers. Money wise I guess we hope for that but those movies are not that great. I do not have a problem with the Destroyer thing. As Thor and Loki will also fight in it. They could have the Destroyer downtown or something but check out the first IM. It is not like the city was in total peril. Obidie put the suit on because they were coming for him and probably would have just taken off. So it does not ahve to be world ending in the first movie.

    Frankly, they've deviated so much from mythology, which was based on magic and spells, cunning and courage, I fear that the public will see this as just another bash fest between aliens. I really hope they can pull a Michael Bay with this one.

Marvel comics also deviated from the myth too, just saying. And I hope they do not pull a Michael Bay, I rather there be a story.

Look Raist bunnies...
