Subj: Its more a case of being repeatedly burned by the same people. After so many times you learn to be caution...

I don't understand some of the reactions here..
I mean ok, it's not the Thor movie most of us wanted to see but at least it's a slightly different take than the norm and is actually SOMETHING......for us THOR FANS to watch, not UA Hulk vs.. but THOR.

And as far as Thor was when he was younger, we all know he was a brash, arrogant bastard sometimes so this type of scenario with Sif is very plausible.

I'm not saying you specifically Punch but I guess you just can't please some people no matter what you do....

I'm looking forward to buying it when it drops.

    In the early parts of this feature Thor is willing to knowingly take advantage of and claim false victory against the warriors training him.

    Then he threatens an unarmed Sif with a blade when she calls him on it.

    This isn't the very legitimate idea of a youthful Thor with a temper problem - this is a spoiled brat lacking in any sense of honor.

    So the heroes journey for him is to become worthy of the hammer by learning to be NOBLE.

    NO NO NO

    This is lazy writing. Learn the character.

    Both in Marvel and in myth - Thor is always noble.
    What he has trouble with is arrogance and anger.
    More anger in myth and more arrogance in Marvel.

    Making him a spoiled craven prince flies in the face of every tales of Asgard story Marvel has put out.

    To me this is far more egregious an error than a poor power showing.

Ultimate Avengers had Thor koed by his own hammer by the Hulk

Next Avengers had him as a deadbeat dad who abandoned his friends and Earth to Ultron.

Hulk vs. you know all about. It actually would have been decent except the fight is the most important part and totally awful.

On other notes:
Dr. Strange was a sword and sorcery flick with little sorcery and mostly just sword.

Iron Man was the best of them and I am in the minority of that viewpoint.

DC has regularly put things out just as good if not usually better. Why waste money on something we are probable not going to like? Why expect it to be good when just about every other video with Thor has not?
