But lately there's been a lot of talk about changing that, and there have even been some female characters added to developing projects (Scarlett Witch is one...

Both a Norse God, and an extra-terrestrial being, Thor doesn't have the "normal person thrust into superpowers" hook - which is both good and bad. And to that end Thor is not really an origin tale, so much as a learning experience for the main character. There's a lot to do here, on top of director Kenneth Branagh putting a big...
