Thor must defend the earth from Gods that want to end human civilization. They send multiple Gods to earth and Thor must defeat each one. Pretty much The Punisher 2004 x 20 and more grand cause you got Gods duking it out on Earth... and Space of course
Either a tale revolving around Thor taking on Mephisto, a battle invovling Thor and The Wrecking Crew, or my favorite: Thor taking on his version of Ares in a huge epic that involves all the elements of Greek and Norse mythology brought together for one story (maybe even an appearance of Marvel's version of Hercules). Well, as long as he hits stuff with a hammer I don't really mind who he takes on in the sequel.
For the new director: it should be somebody with a bold vision, like Ken Branagh for Thor or Darren Arronofsky for
The Wolverine. I hope its somebody young and and inventive, like Nicholas Winding Refn.
Plotwise: explain Thor's relationship with the Warriors Three. Flashback to some of there previous adventures, maybe. Make Thor's relationship with Sif more like a brother-sister kind of thing, rather than a second love interest.
Casting: WOULD'NT CHANGE ANYONE!!!! maybe only introduce 1 or 2 new characters
Thor 2: A 2 hr film of him beating the dog-snot outta nitpicky comic book/sci-fi/internet nerds the world over. For an after credits P.S. - a tight shot of Thor while you hear applause coming from off-screen. The camera cuts to the sound of the applause. It's George Lucas congratulating Thor on ridding the planet of annoying know-it-all nerds so that he may now rerelease his original trilogy, w/ Mark Hamil digitally replaced by Justin Beiber (because he always had JB in mind for the part, but couldn't use him in 1977) w/o the backlash. Thor smashes him in the face w/ his hammer. Fade to black.....
Thor 2 could benefit from a talented director like Matthew Vaughn. Possibly establish a more serious tone by having Thor fight some sort of Earthly or alien element and not just something from Asgard (even though that is technically alien).
in Thor 2 Thor must begrudgingly team up with Captain Hammer to take down the horrible Dr. Horrible. starring chris hemsworth, nathan fillion and neil patrick harris. directed by joss whedon of course.
Director Zach Snyder the best comic book to movie adpater
Thor must save Jane and the rest of earth from Loki's mind controlled Hulk
The cast was awesome would't change a thing except bigger longer fights
I would like to see Lars Von Trier direct Thor 2. "No more happy endings" Obviously LVT won't be doing this project but it would be sweet if he did. I'm sure we would get a role for Char Gainsbourg and I would like to see Tadanobu Asano's role increased.
Plot: Thor has quintuplets with Natalie Portman and teaches them the meaning of the hammer after discovering that one of the quintuplets is really his brother's.
Director(s): Annabel Jenkel and Rocky Morton (Super Mario Bros.). Budget would be $46 million and screenplay edits will continue through first 2 weeks of filming. The acting crew will go crazy and start taking shots of tequilla right before shooting and end up injuring each other during filming. The directors will eventually go $10 million over budget, and be kicked from the set and editing room by studio execs because of their arrogance and constant screenplay ad-libbing. The film will then only make $10 million in the box office.
I really wish Kenneth Branagh would reconsider, but maybe Brian Kirk or even Guillermo Del Toro (hope he'd keep the nobility of the character from the original), but maybe as a story line, they could do something residing on the Beta Ray Bill storyline. Especially since Thor is known with SHIELD now. SHIELD could detect some anomalies in Space and ask Thor to investigate and find the spaceship with the Korbinites and then leads to more story development and the classic fight between Thor and Bill which Bill wins (this can serve as a development to Thor's character on how he deals with a small defeat) and then as a hammer is given to Bill, you find out that an ancient evil of Asgard, Surtur (the fire demon of Asgard..powerful, too) was the cause of the disturbance of Bill's ship and they fight together...blah blah blah. and whatnot. I don't know an actor that could do Bill, but I would like to see it motion capture like Andy Serkis. That's all I can say at the moment.
Thor must decide from living on Earth as a hero with his fellow Avenger companions and Jane Foster, or embrase his God role as future king of Asgard, while Loki alies with Surtur to defeat Odin, menasing not only Thor's home world, but Earth as well.
A Russian secret undersea lab has created the ultimate killing creature via genetic engineering---Sharktopus. The hybrid monster was created to attack US nuclear submarines undersea and carrier battle groups on the surface. When not wreaking havoc on the Navy, it uses its tentacles to grab beautiful babes sunbathing on the beach.
Thor teams up with a beautiful, MIT-trained female scientist who is the world's leading expert on Russian genetic monsters designed to attack Navy warships and beautiful babes on the beach.
However, they are thwarted by the local mayor who downplays the deadly menace because it might hurt the tourist trade---especially beautiful babes who want to sunbathe on the beach.
Chris Hemsworth and Megan Fox star.
Director: Matthew Vaughn - creative, every movie directed has been great and can add flavor instead of just adding more villains.
Plot: Thor travels back to Earth to continue protecting the mortals. While fighting another battle, finds out that his romantic interest has died and has been taken by Hel. Thor teams with the Warrior Three to battle Hel's hoards in order to beat into that b i t c h a new view on death! Hel always wanted Thor under her thumb and this is her way of ensuring he comes to her. And how she got there can be slowly explained via intersecting flashbacks.
Additional Casting: Signory Weaver or maybe an unknown older but sexy actress would play Hel. Included Iron Man since RDJ would spent time debunking Thor's concept of Higher and Lower planes.
Thor is on Earth living a normal life, and has given up his job to be married to Natalie Portman, but when a devil gets brought back from hell Thor must regain his power to save the universe. I know it's not his style, but I'd like to see Soderbergh direct. Gary Oldman could play the villain.
Thor 2: One Enchanted Evening
Plot: Thor encounters a powerful and cunning sorceress Amora (The Enchantress) and her henchman Skurge "The Executioner"
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Jaime Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Idris Elba, Tadanobu Asano, Josh Dallas
New Cast Members: Charlize Theron as Amora and "The Rock" as Skurge
Director: Tim Burton
Thor II, direction by Mimi Leder and James Roday, Michael Pena & Jodie Foster for potential new characters. Thor & Natalie Portman are married, producing a child who has superpowers. It would be a sort of "The Incredibles", but pretty dark and gruesome. Along the way, Thor faces his inner demons and grasps his human side to mesh with the hero side perfectly.
Thor & Loki continue their battle, with more characters from the Asgardian (sp?) realm. Like the first one, THOR is fighting some of these adversaries on EARTH, with the help of his Human friends there.
Defining a Thor 2 film is difficult having not seen what happens in the upcoming Avengers film yet. If all goes as I think it will, Thor's sequel should focus on the struggle the man will have between ruling in Asgard as his father did (where there is very little trouble once Loki is out of the way), or staying in Earth realm where he has a purpose that makes a significant impact on the lives of others.
Essentially, the film should be about Thor coming to terms with what he believes to be the place where he truly belongs. On the outskirts of this plot point, they can do whatever they want and it should be good.
Make the sequel based on the big reveal of his full name: THORAZINE
Include segments of our hero "anesthetizing" his foes for therapeutic reasons. Show his "denial" phase in full, graphic detail. The finalé will include an epic showdown with "A power greater than himself"- his alter-ego: Dr. Feelgood.
Thor 2: Thor loses his powers and hammer, the hammer gets sent to another realm a Thor get sent to the same realm only a sort distance away from the hammer meets a girl who deices to help him, even though she does not know him and he is weird, but at the last minute realizes the chance of some meeting a psycho are greater than meeting a god and calls the police... More realistic and exciting than what in 1
With the bridge destroyed, Thor is now isolated in Asgard. The only way to get back to Earth is through Hel but any god that steps into that realm will instantly be noticed by queen of Hel, Hela. Seeing the sadness of his son being away from Jane Foster, Odin gives Thor the power to change into the puny human with a limp doctor Donald Blake, so he can go through Hel unnoticed. But Odin gives one condition: as Blake, he can't tell anybody who he really is, not even Jane. Mjolnir is changed into a walking cane, so when Thor taps the cane, he changes back into the god of thunder. As Blake, he tries to win Jane over and succeeds, but she's still hung up on Thor. In the meantime, Loki tells Hela what his brother is up to so she possesses Jane's body to try and drive Thor mad. Loki puts Thor against Odin, saying all the pain Thor is going through is just another of his father's lessons. Thor declares war on Asgard but when he discovers Loki and Hela's plan to use him to conquer Asgard, the fight changes.
Donald Blake = Hugh Laurie (House fans should enjoy that)
Hela = Charlize Theron or Emily Blunt
galactus has dispatched the silver surfer to asgard to prepare it for his big sunday meal. thor will have nothing to do with this idea and he enlists the help of hercules and together the two of them put up a considerable defense.
For "Thor 2," Thor should begin to struggle with the idea of having responsibilities to both Earth and Asgard. Have Asgard be threated with the end of their world as they know it, and have Earth being attacked by force that threatens to end their world as well.
Faced with his most difficult decision yet; Thor must attempt to save his home world of Asgard, or the world which he has grown to love and feels a certain responsibility for; Earth.
Thor must come to terms with his involvement in the events depicted in The Avengers, and the consequences that they must now live with. Then Loki tends to start a war with both Asgard and Earth. And this time he plans to cut a few loose ends. To be directed by Russel Mulcahy.
Have Walt Simonson draw an intro with Beta Ray Bill...do a storyline with said character. Haven't seen this first one yet, but introduce Enchantress and Lorelei with current eye candies, thinking one should be Blake Lively and other Mila Kunis. As far as stories, maybe a battle with Hulk, they both have similar strength and should be a good fight. Or have something to do with Ragnarok. Loki should always be lurking causing mischief, what about Mephisto, they always had nice battles.
director - David Fincher (darker themed movie)
All the major characters return.
In the sequel (which takes place exclusively in Asgard) Thor has to join forces with The Frost Giants in order to save their homeland from an unknown force which seeks to destroy it....
Loki takes control of the HULK and wreaks havok on Earth, Thor has to defeat the HULK and save the Earth but nearly loses his life in the process. Meanwhile, Jane gets into contact with Betty to tame the HULK (cue in classic HULK line: "Bet--teeee? ") and bring back Bruce Banner.
Thor returns to earth for another weekend and falls madly in love with another girl in a record time of 2 days and by the third day learns of her menstrual periods and flees back to Asgard. Yet another life fulfilling lesson learned in a weekend on earth.
In a complete departure from my usual movie preferences, this seems like one series that would benefit from expanding its universe as much as possible in the sequel.
While it was smart to keep Thor at least somewhat grounded so as to not completely outshine the rest of the Avengers for the team film, this is the kind of character that most special-effects-based films these days wish they had, welcoming otherworldly villains and locations, time travel, and impossibly large battles.
Thor hears about an evil presence living in a small town -- the vampire family the Cullens. Thor attempts to dispatch them, but the Cullen's sparkly effect distracts him. Bella's emotionless face hypnotizes him and it seems like certain defeat for Thor, until a young sorcerer by the name of Harry Potter swoops in on a flying broom and dispatches the blank-faced woman. Thor regains control and has an epic battle with the Cullens and manages to roast them all. Then he and Natalie Portman dance the funky chicken.
Thor is given a series of herculean like tasks that he must overcome in order to find redemption and regain his status in Asgard, only to discover at journey's end, after he has overcome and regained his honour, that where he is truly needed is on Earth. So he chooses to stay, with Odin's blessings, and truly becomes a hero.
Since this probably won't happen until after the Avengers, I wouldn't mind seeing the plot for the sequel include some resemblance to the Hulk Vs Thor anime where Loki transported Hulk to Asgard and separated the beast from Bruce and almost takes out all of Asgard so Thor has to think outside the box to stop him.
Zack Snyder, same cast in relation to Asgard. Plot: a danger against earth where Loki tries to bring other beings to earth to conquer it, as an example where the frost giants long ago tried to do the same.
I'm a little disappointed at the lack of real participation people are having with this as well.
In the aftermath of the Avengers (we still don't know this but I'm going by assumption) Loki is banished to eternity in Niffleheim (Loki is too important to kill in The Avengers and I really hope they don't kill him) After the Avengers leave to go their separate ways whilst still close in contact with S.H.I.E.L.D, Thor decides he wants to meet with Jane again only to discover she fallen for Keith Kincaid, another astrophysicist after she had given up on searching for Thor a long time ago. Soon after, Loki finds the wreckage to the Bifrost in Hel and rebuilds it to get to Vanaheim to find The Enchantress so he can plot with her to kill Odin, and wreak havoc on Asgard by sending her to Earth to steal the Cosmic Cube and summon the Wrecking Crew and giving them the Fire Demons to assist them in destroying Asgard. They also capture Jane as a part of their plan. This is all done as a trap so they can kill Thor and claim Asgard and from thereon Earth using the Fire Demons of Muspelheim for both feats.
Timur Bekmambetov (wanted, day watch, night watch)
Directed by JJ Abrahms. Thor travels to the future right before the demise of the USS Kelvin to save George Kirk moments before he crashes into Nero's ship. With the aid of his hammer, they fight through time only to become friends in the climactic finale that ends in a musical number called, you guessed it..."Hammer Time!"
As Thor desperately tries to return to Earth, his brother, Loki, releases Surtur the fire demon upon Asgard in an attempt to bring about Ragnarok-- an event that will put the Norse Gods to sleep forever.
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Surtur played by: Gary Oldman
Plot: In a dramatic re-imagining, it is discovered that the Norse god has a lisp and that people have been misunderstanding him for years. His real name is "Sore" and you would be too if you had to haul that hammer around all day.
Cast: all the same, with the addition of Robin Williams as the Swedish speech therapist and his assistant, the muppet Swedish Chef.
Directors: The Farelly Brothers
Thor opens a snow cone shack on Asgard while his father protests against it. Someone forgets to leave a tip for Thor after he's created a tasty, ice cold treat for them one day, and he is filled with vengeance towards this man. He follows him back to Earth where he defeats him and then opens a new snow cone shack on Earth with Natalie Portman.
Let's have Michael Bay direct, because we'll need lots of explosions all around the snow cone shacks. Same cast from the original but Bill Murray will play the "dude that doesn't tip."
Thor meets Beta Ray Bill! Duh! In all honesty, I'd really just like to see more Asgard and a little less hammy acting from some of the actors. I think as long as the sequel is handled respectfully, it should be better than the original since we've got the boring, seen it a hundred times before origin story out of the way. Oh, and can we just go ahead and retcon that whole Loki is half frost giant plotline? Please?
Director: Robert Rodriguez
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Kal Penn, John Cho, Neil Patrick Harris
Plot: Thor leaves The Avengers in pursuit of a normal life, only to find himself caught up in another one of Harold & Kumar's wild schemes! Neil Patrick Harris gives up chasing the ladies once he realizes his "hammer" just can't equate.
