In the upcoming Agents of SHIELD episode “Yes Man” (airing 11 March), Odin (or should we say, Loki) has sent Lady Sif to Earth to capture an Asgardian with magical powers by the name of Lorelei, and return her to Asgard.
I’m looking forward to seeing Jaimie Alexander reprise her role as Lady Sif again, as I love her character and wish there’d been more of her in Thor 2.
But what I’m really intrigued about here is Lorelei. Could her introduction into the MCU mean we will see Loki team up with her (or her sister Amora the Enchantress) in Thor 3?
Am I the only one who’s offended by the chick who groped Thor on the Tube?
People, sexual harassment is not okay just because the victim is a man and the perpetrator is a woman. Groping someone without any indication of consent is wrong. And not funny.
No, that squicked me too. I suppose it just seemed so relatively minor in comparison with the truly epic fucked-up-ness of the rest of the movie that I mentally noted it and moved on. But then, a hell of a lot of totally not ok stuff seems minor in comparison.
And yeah, don’t get me started on the idea of ‘humor’ in these movies.
True, given everything else that’s wrong with this movie that’s a pretty small detail. I just happened to see a gif of it and decided to finally say something.
Which, unfortunately, highlights the problem with trying to divine scenes from a movie from gifsets and your own supposition of context, rather than actually seeing the movie in question.
In the movie, they are aboard a rather packed train. Being a big bloke, Thor is taking up no small amount of space, and there are multiple people standing. When the train jerks (as trains are wont to do) the woman in question loses her balance and stumbles into Thor, bracing herself accidentally against his chest. This is not “sexual assault” on a train, despite her reaction as to the firmness of what she landed on, this is a woman stumbling on a train in motion and automatically reaching for a handhold - with a giant mountain of norse god backed right up against her.
To be perfectly honest, it’s more a joke about the London Underground than anything else. And having spent more than my fair share of time on said Underground, it’s pretty standard. I do have to say, though, that falling into Thor’s chest is a lot more appealing than accidentally getting a faceful of someone’s armpit. Which would be a far more standard experience.
I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left
and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off
Also, the dude behind the counter just nonchalantly making shawarma for the Avengers like they come in every day.

I’ve reblogged this about five times already and I dont plan on stopping
everything about this is perfect
Plot contrivance: By structural engineering definition, pillars are supposed to transmit the weight of what is above them to what is below. This is probably different in the ‘’made-that-up’’ kingdom of Asgard where a single ship destroys 80% of all pillars in a room that has nothing but pillars and yet nothing happens.
