you bring up a problem I have with most of these movies [In reply to] Can't Post

"Rule the world"? Seriously, that's the villain's goal? Actually it makes far more sense in this case, when the villain actually is a demigod and might be up to the job (after all his stepdad does just that). But when it's a human, usually their one power is brilliance, and you'd think a smart guy would be able to look at history and see what happens to every single dictator or conquerer who used force to get power.

I thought the Lex Luthor of the first Chris Reeve Superman film was entirely believable. He intended to wreak a specific amount of havoc 1. because he could and every boy likes blowing things up, and 2. it would garner him billions so he could do whatever else he wanted. But he had no interest in ruling people.

Revenge, on the other hand, is an entirely believable motive for a villain, and of course Loki would go after Thor's girlfriend's world. Did they not play that up?

There's a picture of Joss directing Chris Hemsworth in full Thor getup, and Chris is saying "The hammer is my what?" Dr. Horrible fans everywhere are ROFL.

The way we imagine our lives is the way we are going to go on living our lives.
