    carthl:

    I was doing some research for a drawing and playing around with some Thor screencaps to see the Jotunheim sets a bit better (Is that weird? Am I the only one who does that? Damn the movie for being so dark anyway.) And I have to say, there’s some really sweet architectural details hidden in all that gloom. I just might have to hunt down some properly lighted HD caps to see it even better. Or are there actually any good pictures of the sets around?

Laufey - Queen of the Frost GiantsCrossover between the Marvel version (armor and stuff) and norse mythology were Laufey is actually a giantess

OH

The thing is. They probably only changed Laufey’s sex (and gender?), cause the Thor story started back in the 60s or something. In the myths it was pretty damn interesting that Loki was almost the only one who was referred to by his matronym “Laufeyson”, instead of a partonym like all other main gods (e.g. Thor Odinson).
It had to be important to point out that he was his mother’s son, or they would have called him Farbautisson. So Laufey was the more important parent in Loki’s story. So of course they had to turn her into a man, they couldn’t have the mother be more important than the father. 
It’s just… look at this picture above. You can’t tell me that having a cold and merciless Frost Giant Queen as Odin’s big enemy wouldn’t have been more interesting. 
Also, it’s so weird that a male character is called “Laufey” when it’s a feminine name still used by many women even today.
Maybe some next reboot (parallel universe) in the comics will show a world where Laufey is really Laufey instead of Farbauti with his wife’s name.

    So I have a question about the Aether.

    So the Convergence is what was making the fancy dimensional warping happen, yes? And the dimensional warping is happening because the Convergence means the Nine Realms are all stacking on top of each other. And the Aether was hidden by Bor, and I quote, “somewhere where no one will ever find it,” suggesting a place hidden from even Heimdall; this is borne out when Heimdall is unable to see Jane as she gets Aether-ified. It follows, since Heimdall can see the totality of the Nine Realms as well as a good amount of stuff between them, that the Aether had to be hidden somewhere on one of those… non-Yggdrasil places? They kind of have to exist because the Chitauri came from somewhere, at least, and they didn’t get a consolation world made for them like the dark elves did at the forming of Yggdrasil (STILL SO CONFUSED ABOUT THAT? ??).

    So how the hell does the Aether break through to Midgard? It’s not part of the Convergence. It’s SEALED AWAY until Jane gets hold of it and becomes its host. Only then does it start sending out pings to Malekith and shit. The other place the warp bubble was sending stuff to was shown to be Svartalfheim.

    I AM PERPLEXED.

    think of Yggdrasil like the gate-system in SG1: you can intantly travel to any planet in the network, but that doesn’t magically stop other planets from existing. They’re still there, they’re just not part of the Alteran’s network. Now, this doesn’t stop someone ELSE from coming in, making a new “gate” and hooking in on the Yggdrasil “network”, and I’m guessing this is what Bor did; he made his own “gate”, in a different, hm, let’s call it ‘programming language’. Just different enough that Heimdall can’t “read” it, but similar enough that he and his guards could get there to drop the thing off and back. Now, when the Convergence opens all and sundry, the “gate” the Aether is connected with gets blasted open too, since, you know, it’s still a connection, albeit a not very oft used one.

    Also, as far as I thought, the Nine Realms are just fancy Asguardian speak for ‘we conquered here’, as it does seem to largely (in movie canon) be places they’ve fought in/on/with.

    *shrug* In that case, the Nine Realms are rather like the System Lords’ domain— yeah, there are other civilizations out there, but they’re really preoccupied enough with what they have to go making more connections.

    its been 2 years and i’m still fucked up over the fact thor had to watch what he thought was his brother committing suicide right in front of him and could do nothing to stop it

    #then he had to have loki die in his arms#like a day after his…

    There’s going to come a day when Loki gets killed for real, and Thor doesn’t accept it. And that day will break my heart.

    this, yes, excuse me as i go cry all over everything

rdjinspiringlybeautiful:

I found this scene utterly heartbreaking. Not just because of Coulson’s death but because of the way Downey played it. He has no dialogue and is in frame for most of the sequence. For many of the actors I know, that is a nightmare scenario. He has nothing to say verbally and he can’t over play his gestures because it would detract from Sam’s speech. For almost two minutes Robert convey’s Tony’s utter grief and confusion and ultimately anger with nothing but his breathing and his eyes. The performance is perfect. It is elegantly understated and yet devastating in it’s vulnerable honesty. It is in scenes like this that Robert elevates his acting to a whole other level and his inherent gift truly shines through.

RDJ along with Johnny Depp are actors I consider massively overlooked for their talent
