There is science behind this?

Oh yeah....Thor is an alien here...

An interesting mixture of real world physics theories and well crafted Norse-like mythology.

Awesome stuff.

I think basing the legend of Thor more in sci-fi than fantasy is a good idea. They need to desperate Marvel's Thor for Norse Thor. Otherwise people might be looking at Loki as the inhabitor of a strange wooden mask that turns an everyday banker into a crazy, rubber faced superhero!

Hehehe.... so the Dark Elves were Engineers? I guess that makes sense.

I just want more Loki.

My sister came from the theater and as a regular movie viewer (not involved with deeper comicbook/videogame/tvmedia themes like everybody in this page) she doesnt like the movie, she say that the things pass very fast, and hate why thor/everyone else didnt feel sorry for the deaths in the movie, and says that the ending is to convoluted.

she didnt like ironman 3 either

both in the other hand my 10 year nephew love it except the ending

I could kick Thor's ass with my mustache

I think the coolest thing about Marvel's cinematic Thor is that they use a lot of Ancient Astronaut Theories to explain Norse Mythology.
