...and specifically, the stinger after the end credits, where Thor's hammer is being excavated.  I mentioned to him I was wondering what they would do with it.  They can't transport it out of there.  Thor's hammer has a magic spell on it, that only someone pure of motive can lift it.  Longshot could lift the hammer, for example.  But a bunch of spooks, shadowy government agents from SHIELD, would not be able to lift it.

While thinking about this, it occurred to me that Rhapsody from Sound Waves could lift the hammer.


...or maybe not.

With apologies to John Buscema (Thor 272).

I thought the SHIELD agent said "We found *him*" at the end of the movie? I was thinking Thor himself was down there, although how he ended up in New Mexico is beyond me.

I could potentially be wrong (while I enjoyed the movie, I'm not willing to plunk down another $9 just to see the stinger again ;-) ). I thought they said, "it." I'm hoping "it", because the idea that they found "him" brings back memories of the Hulk movie where Thor was just a viking spirit trapped inside the hammer.

I'm figuring, since the "solo" movies seem to be heading for a convergence (Iron Man, Hulk, etc.) for an Avengers movie, that the Thor movie will take place just before Iron Man 2, and will explain how Thor's hammer wound up there in the first place, and finding it is part of the plan to bring everyone together.

Personally, I'm more excited over the new rumors circulating of a SHIELD movie with Sam Jackson as Nick Fury. I'm a huge Sam Jackson fan, and that would just be too awesome.

I didn't see the Hulk movie, but if that's the case then it actually fits right in with what I saw: the agent (I thought!) said "We found him", and the camera panned over to the hammer. Leaving, again, the question of how the hammer got there, but we'll see soon enough.

I'm with you: The SHIELD movie is a much more interesting thing to me, especially since "Sgt Fury and his Howling Commandos" was one of the few Marvel comics I collected regularly as a kid.

There was a spate of made for TV movies with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno. The first one guest starred Rex Smith as Daredevil. The second was the Thor one. The Thor one had fans howling, but to me, it figured. Making a movie starring a pagan god just wouldn't play in the Bible Belt, so they made very radical changes. (Personally, I've never really been a Thor fan, and I didn't think the one from the movie was actually all that bad. In fact, a solo movie with him might have been kind of fun.)

From the casting news (and the descriptions for the open call sheet), it sounds like the movie is going to be faithful to the comic. I mean, I'm not a Thor fan. Then again, I wasn't an Iron Man fan, either, and I loved both movies, so it's not like I'm unwilling to be convinced.

The SHIELD movie would also help wipe away the stain of the David Hasselhoff "Nick Fury" movie. If you've never seen it, it pops up on cable once in a while. It was made for TV. The best thing that can be said for it is it wasn't as bad as the Captain America movie was....

I remember the Hulk TV movies, but I never saw one ... I'm a *bad* fanboy. I was mostly a DC reader until I stumbled across an X-Man issue with Kitty Pryde on the front cover -- in a tattered wedding dress and lingerie -- and started paying more attention to Marvel after that.

Like you, I also wasn't an Iron Man fan, but I also loved both movies -- they seem to be on a role, so I'm looking forward to giving Thor a try. I *did* see the David Hasselhoff movie, and if they don't head that direction we'll be all right.
