Thor movie by humon Thor movie by humon
My site [link]

First time I watched Thor was with *Poralizer and she kept telling me "Don't think too hard about it. Just enjoy it as an action movie"

I wasn't the least angry or butthurt and actually thought it was quite fun, but my mind kept going "This is wrong! This is all wrong!" and it carried over to the Avengers movie. Every time Thor and Loki opened their mouths my brain went "Ynhljbasfsgdb!!!*blue screen*" :XD:

I know it's based on a comic, but the comic is inspired by the mythology, and I had a hard time ignoring that because they had taken enough parts from the mythology to make the wrong parts stand out. If they had just taken the names and left everything else I would have had an easier time getting over it.

At least it explained all the weird question I've been getting from people about Norse mythology.

But just for fun, have some Danish Lokis [link] (From a christmas series) [link] (From the cartoon Valhalla)

The Marvel version of Thor is, in my opinion, great. But he is not very accurate to Norse Mythology.

My thoughts exactly yo, the movie has nothing to do with the mythology

I once saw a Marvel animated series where Odin had both eyes.

I have the exact same problem with any movie based on Greek mythology...
SFFCorgi Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015
Here's another take:  It's an Alternate Universe where enough has been changed to result in the Asgardians you see on the screen.

Also, I think there was a story in Marvel canon about how Sif's hair was golden to start, but after something Loki did, she had it magically replaced with this new hair.

Anyway, I'm sure I'll feel your pain later whenever they condescend to come out with a Wonder Woman movie.  From the early rumours, it's going to be ALL wrong.

It's only a movie.

"If they had just taken the names and left everything else I would have had an easier time getting over it."

That's a point.
TheSnowyGuardian Featured By Owner Edited Aug 24, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
It's not just one movie, it's a whole comic universe.
RoyceGrey Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2015
It's still not very important.

I take it you never actually read the comics. It is very lightly inspired in mythology. I suggest avoiding Earth X and Paradise X, where they are shapeshifting aliens molded into gods by the imagination of an old man.

a few mins ago I watched a movie called Vikingdom, in which Thor wants to destroy the world of men because they changed into Christianity.

At least this Thor looked more like the one from the Poetic Edda.

I got over it though. It was a good movie, really.

Is in normal for danish people to be well versed in Norse mythology or is this a special interest?
TereseAntonsen Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2014  Professional General Artist
There were vikings in Denmark too, as well as in Sweden, Finland, Iceland and so forth, so it's pretty common mythology we know of. :)

That's me with the Resident Evil movies...It's hard to separate stories that you are so fond of being entirely different yet share similar aspects of the original hard in fact that I won't even give DragonBall Evolution the light of

Thats kinda how I feel about older cartoon Disney movies when I watch them now that I am older.

I think my favorite part in all of this was this line:

 Every time Thor and Loki opened their mouths my brain went "Ynhljbasfsgdb!!!*blue screen*"

Just. Loved. It.

The comic cannon and the movie cannon are SLIGHTLY different...
ThorFanGirl Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep. That as me too. But they wanted to make it less confusing for the people that dont read the comics or dont read Norse mythology. Though they should make a remake for the people that do! I would be ALL OVER that!
LyssaOneiroi Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2013
Me too. Me too. Sif annoyed me so much. I was like 'Thor! You are cheating on your wife!!!! Drop Jane instantly!' Plus, lack of mead. All the best Viking stories include mead.
KeplerNova Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
That is very definitely me, although I got over it eventually... the movie is great in its own right.
Then Dad got me a book of old Thor comics, and I got through ALMOST three stories and threw it at the wall. XD

don't worry!! we have that all with certain movies!
I have it with Percy Jackson...the movies suck and contain so many faults!!aaarrgghhh!!!
grinningsorrow Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2013
Honestly, the movie was a terrible adaptation of an OKAY adaptation. Read the comics, they're slightly closer to the original mythology (slightly...).
That being said, I love Marvel's Thor (comic and movie) as much as the original mythology. You just have to learn to keep the two separate. :P
computer-girl28 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2013
That's how I reacted. :)
crazyforchocobos Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013
I guess the best way to take it's a re imagining. but as for Sif's hair...I think it was originally blonde in the myths and Thor and Loki got into a fight and Loki turned her hair black.

Maybe we can make the argument that already happened prior to the movie?
Ruler101 Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2013

Well, if it makes you feel any better the comics at one point DO explain all the discrepancies. 


Basically, taking a VERY liberal view on the idea that some gods will be revived after Ragnarok, they say that after the Ragnarok all the gods are reborn in different ways, varying from slight changes to incredible differences. 


I mean, the idea of Ragnarok being a cycle is kinda off to begin with, but at least they addressed it.  =)

Fili-Laufeyson Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
well that's exactly what me looked like, but i first read Scandinavian mythology and later watched the movie :)  that was so confusing!
Lasago Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've got the same problem.. At my school, we get taught acient Greek and Roman history (as well as the myths), so every single f*cking time I watch a movie "based" on those stories, my brain just shuts down...

Petit-Hibou Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I just now had a revelation about this..why did they make Sif's hair black? It's notably blonde. And then..Loki's Odin's brother?
I still like the movie and all, but I just had the glass shattered.
I do hope they bring in Sigyn in the second movie, though~

Transformersis Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's a great movie, but you have to remember that Marvel based the comics LOOSELY on the actual Nordic myths. Personally, I think it's actually easier to think of the stories as alternate realities, but that's just me. ;)

I told a friend a bit about Thor stuff.
They were all like, 'no, thor isn't from mythology blah blah'

i went to the thor movie as part of my lore class at the end we had to find all the things wrong with the movie
WolfieGrrrl Featured By Owner May 2, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah... Me, too...

My brothers kept telling me to just relax and stop thinking about it. Eventually, I ended up learning to appreciate it as something entirely separate from the myths. It took a while, though. XD I had to watch the movie a few times before it started settling.

I still like the mythology better... and this comic of yours describes my reaction perfectly. XD Excellent. :clap:

Same thing happened to my classics club and I when we saw immortals. It hurt our brains and our constant cristisisms annoyed the others in the theater. Good times.
Dewani90 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
that's the bad thing of knowing the mythos of every culture, watching a movie "based" on the mythology and it is even worse if it is "loosely based" you will end up thinking " this isn't how it is suposed to be, it's not right...what were they thinking?", so whenever i see Thor i laugh, because that's not how he should be... the gods would never dress in colorful spandex with the colors of a flag that is not even from the country that believed in them, i would laugh even harder if someone makes a superhero called "mars" or "hercules", so i take the movies, cartoons or comics as something funny that should not be taken seriously no matter how hard they try to be based in a myth (just look at dragon ball, based in the legend of Sun Wukong, i doubt the legend included aliens, super-duper-powers, robots, cyborgs and vehicles that came from capsules)
bkworm87 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013
Yeah, I feel your pain. I had a hard time accepting the comics after I know 'now' what the Norse mythos is all about, and it just seems like Marvel was having a hay-day in making more fans come to the franchise for the wrong reasons.
I also learned off of the Rick Riordan's website (Percy Jackson & the Olympians series) that he is also preparing to make a spin-off series of the Norse gods/mythos in young adult fiction, so I'll be subconsciously critiquing that too.
