More Asgardians To Appear In THOR Sequel; Will It Be More Asgard-Grounded?

More Asgardians To Appear In <i>THOR</i> Sequel; Will It Be More Asgard-Grounded?

Based completely on an overlooked statement, & slightly speculation, it seems unlike Marvel's original THOR film, the sequel could be more grounded in Asgard. Check it out!



Heels off the news of Marvel Studios pursuing Game Of Thrones director Brian Kirk to helm their THOR sequel, from Variety and Movie Web's report, what's offhandedly mentioned may hint at a majorly new direction from the Kenneth Branagh-directed film.

  • The "Thor" sequel is expected to feature a large cast of Aasgardians and creatures in the Norse mythology-set world.

  • Thor 2 is expected to double its cast of larger than life Aasgardians and mythical Norse creatures, making it one of the largest scale Marvel adventures to date, second only to The Avengers


  • Though I could be looking too much into it, this may hint at the possibility of the sequel being more, if not completely, grounded in the magical Norse realm of Asgard. Or not even just Asgard, but also the other six realms, of nine from the Norse cosmology, that weren't explored in the original film; especially if there'll be more creatures.

    Of course, if so, it could mean the characters Thor interacted with in the original film, while earthbound, wouldn't return; notably Natalie Portman's Jane Foster. However, at some point in the comics, Thor did take Jane to Asgard with him, where she was briefly granted immortality and the power of gods; which could evidently be a twist for the film.

    While staying noted that this is just a theory, and somewhat speculation, what would you think of Thor going on an all-out Asgardian adventure, rather than Earthly; like his outing in next summer's The Avengers? Anyhow the sequel hits July 26, 2013!
