Improving the Thor Films

Of all the Marvel solo films, Thor is often considered to be the weakest of the bunch. So much so that title character is often upstaged in his own movie. Thor 3, which will be entitled Thor: Ragnorok, is expected in November of 2017. What can the filmmakers improve upon to make Thor a strong contender?

  • Part of the reason Thor's films are considered weak is because he is a god, and he is more impervious than most of the other Avengers. It's the same problem when writing Superman: how to you write a character that is seminally invincible? The bigger reason the films are weaker is because how Loki has overshadowed Thor in popularity. Thor is simply not as fun when Loki is not on screen, and that is mainly because Loki is more witty and compelling. Loki practically chews the scenery. – Aaron Hatch 9 years ago
  • Whoever takes this up should remember to use statistics when saying things like Thor is the weakest of the bunch? Weakest hero? That's relative. Weakest written? Some argue that honor (or dishonor) goes to the Hulk. So, we need proof with these things. Otherwise, interesting topic. – SpectreWriter 9 years ago
  • I think something that could make Thor movies stronger contenders is some backstory, whether it be for Thor, the Warriors Three, Lady Sif, Loki, Jane, etc. We don't know a lot about any of the characters' pasts, so letting us know just what's been happening in the hundreds of years Thor and company have been alive could make them all more interesting. – VelvetRose 9 years ago
  • I don't really know Jane too well and she seems like she's a very interesting person! It would be cool to learn more about her childhood, why she does what she does. I think you can learn a lot about someone with glimpses of their childhood. They did this for Loki and Thor, so maybe something for Jane? – itschlofosho 9 years ago
