Thor in The Avengers movie, do you think they'll dumb him down

#1 Posted by QueenKBLJ (7 posts) - - Show Bio

what i mean is do you think they make him weaker to give the other main hero's more time to shine, but let be real, if they didn't the movie would be called the mighty thor and the rest of them

Thor wasn't all that powerful in his movie, I mean he had a hard time fighting Loki for goodness sake, so I don't think they would need to dumb him down.

I think they'll create a threat big enough so that they won't have to dumb him down.

He seemed pretty dumb in his own film.

I think they will downplay his true power levels, but I don't think they'll make him seem simple-minded and oafish.

It will be similar to the Thor movie i think. His powers will be dumbed down like in the recent movie. If they gave him the powers they gave him in some of the Avengers comics, the other characters would be useless.

The Thor from the movie wasn't all that powerfull, so I don't think they'll have to dumb him down.

He could have his role where he's needed, such as fighting a large or powerful enemy, whilst the others do their smaller part in the fight.
 
Who the hell am I kidding.. they'll dumb him down..

I dont think dumb him down is the right words for this. They already lowered his power level from the comics which to me makes sense. Because then it owuld be utterly rediculous to have an overpowered god fighting along side cap. brining everybody closer to each other powerwise allows for them not to rely heavily on just one person.

Probably, but I kinda like him dumbed down it really seperates him from Superman whom we all know is perfect. Not like mentally challenged just not having any idea how to follow some of Cap's orders or Iron Man's plans.

I agree. That would be a very big change from how he was portrayed in his movie. 
I can see them giving him more of an aggressive attitude though.

Loki will posses Hulk and then its another lame Hulk vs Thor movie

It honestly looked like he was holding back against Loki, as he pretty easily beat him with a quick thunderbolt and dropping his hammer on him pinning him to the ground. 
Heck Loki was trying to taunt him at the start to actually fight him.

They weaken him in the comics when he is in a team, most of the time.

Yeah, I got from the movie that he didn't want to fight Loki, not that his powers were dumbed down. He wasn't holding back against the Destroyer or breaking the Rainbow Bridge or even the Frost Giants. He pretty much kicked their collective asses. And in the Avengers trailer he is the only one shown doing any action by throwing Mjolnir at the end. I think we'll see him call down the thunder!

This.

Thor's powers weren't really shown to full in the movie.  I don't think they will need to power him down in any real regard.  The man can toss his hammer, make shockwaves, and call lightning. 
 
With luck they will make these powers needed in some reagard in the film.  If they decide to go more ultimates then they might show another power or two.

he did really well.

he wasn't dumbed down or was too powerful.

just wished he had more of a thor vs hulk fight.

the iron man fight was better imo

He was done correct I think, not too strong not too weak.
