So, I’ll be honest. When I first read the synopsis for Thor 2: The Dark World, I was kind of disappointed. (Thor going deeper into space?! What about Jane! What about EARTH! He’s barely had time to even form any kind of connection to Earth OR Jane and now he’s going to some OTHER planet?!)But that was before I saw these stills, one of which appears to be Thor and Jane in Asgard. Now, we all know that at the end of the first Thor movie, [SPOILERS for Thor and Avengers AHOY] we saw a tragic, grieving Thor — not just for the loss of Loki, but also for the loss of Jane, with the destruction of Bifrost. It was a bittersweet finish, and we were left with the knowledge that Jane was searching for Thor, determined to reach him. And Thor, in turn, had promised to return to her. And then AVENGERS happened, and suddenly, Thor was magicked to Earth to go after Loki, which made the end of the first Thor movie and all the heartbreak totally just… well. I don’t want to say it was a cheat, but it certainly makes that ending much less powerful to know that Thor had other ways to reach Earth, and Jane just wasn’t important enough to make Thor utilize them. And not only that, but during AVENGERS, Thor snubs her. We get one passing reference to Jane being moved to safety by SHIELD and Thor thanking them, but that’s it. Nothing else. And if I were Jane? Hooooo Boy would Thor be in hot water with me, if after whooping Loki, he didn’t even check in to explain his extended absence. (I can certainly understand that he had his hands full BEFORE whooping Loki and the alien invaders, but you’re telling me he could not give her five minutes before he magicked them both back to Asgard with the cosmic cube?)You can see my dilemma, I’m sure. I want to love Thor, but he is clearly not a reliable love interest for Jane, and “demigod” (seriously Marvel why?!) or not, I really hope she’s more caught up in the science of simply finding Asgard than she is in pining after Thor I-can’t-be-bothered-to-stop-in-and-say-hi Odinson.And all I can think now is “PLEASE let Jane have found her way there on her own through science!” because this is the dream I’m dreaming — […]
