I am expecting a highly enjoyable romp with epic action sequences, though no real strength feats (alas I believe that Thor's physical abilities will remain ambiguous in the MCU).
Jane Thor will doubtless have impressive power showings out of deference to the source material (and the Woke sensibilities that are par for the course), but Waika will not short change Hemsworth whose charisma will be given free reign.
Sadly, while the MCU tends to emphasise the overall power quotient and significance of characters like Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch (not to mention Captain Marvel), and ensures that characters such as Shang Chi, Cap and Spidey are portrayed to their fullest possible potential, Thor is likely to remain a highly durable viking-alien with a magical hammer, pretensions of mythic grandeur, a charismatic swagger, and a colourful supporting cast. His untapped godly/cosmic reservoirs of awesome power will remain unknown to the GA, and ironically (in light of comic book history), he will likely never be depicted with sufficient gravitas or authority to suggest he might be a serious candidate to lead the Avengers.
These misgivings aside, I expect a most entertaining movie.

My big concerns would be that jane beats up Thor, Gorr ends up killing him off now!
