- Asgard = Aliens. What was wrong with them being Gods? Guardians of the Galaxy is exploring the Cosmic side of Marvel, so why are we suddenly told that Asgard = Space aliens? It just removes mysticism behind them and removes subjects like Valhalla or Hel in future films. Even if can get past this, you got the whole problem of-
- Asgard are technologically savvy. This one bugged me in Thor 2. This REALLY bugged me. Why are there suddenly Anti-Aircraft guns and spaceships flying around Asgard? If they got that tech, then why the fuck do they still wield swords when a ship full of elves mow them down with their guns? On that note, are Loki’s illusions just “Nanomachines” in his blood that allows him to manipulate air molecules? Seriously, it just gets stupid. And don’t point to the Sif on Agents of SHIELD going “LOL, Human tech outdated!” that removes the charm of Asgardians not being used to midgard tech! One of the more charming things about Thor books is their fascination with human technology! It’s really moronic.
- Not using the Expansive Thor cast. Thor’s cast is big. REALLY big. Valkyrie, Balder, Enchantress, Hela, Scourge and many more are just some of the names associated with Thor. So why are we wasting times with Captain Underpants and the Interns Intern when we could have high fantasy going on?!
Honestly, the Thor movies feel like Fantasy movies that are too embarrassed to be about fantasy, so instead they use lame pseudo science to explain away everything, and instead we are left with a very mundane franchise that should feel epic.
Seriously, I’m disappointed in the Thor films.
