    *SPOILERS: TDW* Did anyone really think that there wouldn’t be a Thor 3, after that cliffhanger? Pretty sure that the writers can’t leave Loki on the throne of Asgard indefinitely, without at least giving an in-universe explanation of what the heck happened to Odin.

  2. John Daker says:

    The script for Thor TDW was pretty awful. Lets hope this guy was not the one responsible for that.

    Lets hope the action sequences are better in thor 3 than thor 2.
