Yes, exactly! My brother and i too wondered how Thor was going to come out. We never saw any comic-books, and the only Marvel movies we ADORED was the
Iron Mans (RDJ is so great as Tony Stark, couldn't imagine someone else), and then we heard of Thor. Now we were very familiar with the scandinavian
mythology, so we were excited to see what the movie adaptation was going to be; then i read that Marvel already based a Marvel version of scandinavian
mythology, so we were kind of anxious (after all, in the true mythology, Loki is nowhere near the brother of Thor, he actually existed when Odin was
young, for they travelled together; Thor and Odin are Frost-Giants descendants, hence why Thor is a giant and that Loki had to sit on his belt to
travel with him, etc.).
But it turned out really not so bad, and not far-fetched as i was afraid. What i love about Marvel, is that Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and now
The Avengers, is that you actually believe that it could be true; its not far-fetched and fantastic to the point of absurd, its really well
And yes, Hiddleston really stealed the show. Loki only appeared 1/3 of the time, and 2/3 of this 1/3 he was mean, but i liked him better than Thor. I
mean, no offense meant, but Thor is quite the usual hero: he's arrogant, then repent himself, then saves the world with his life. But Loki was
unexpected: he started as the wise brother, trying to stop Thor from doing something stupid, but then he discovers that he is different, and that his
life wasn't what he thought was; he is mad, jealous, angry, for he thinks that he is the reason why Odin liked Thor more than him, and it is so that
he decides to do everything he can to prove himself worthy. Which is quite what could happen in real life; what if you're left aside all your life
and then you discovers that you're part of the enemy?
I really hope they do something beautiful in Thor 2, that they make Loki like in the mythology: bad then good, etc.
I loved the jokes!
