More Romance And Loki Won't Be The "Big" Baddie In 'THOR 2'

While Loki will indeed figure into Thor 2 but Marvel's Kevin Feige tells Collider that the mischievous Asgardian will take as break as a main villain. It makes perfect sense considering that he's had enough of a villainous workload in both Thor and Avengers. It was previously announced that the cast of Asgardians would be doubled and that the sequel would explore the realms. This leads me to believe that the villain indeed won't be another citizen of Asgard. Which would exclude Amora The Enchantress and Skurge The Executioner.

"Loki has a part, but there will be a different villain, another big villain. But you can’t do a Thor movie without Loki."

Kevin also mentions that Odin (Hopkins) and Jane (Portman) will factor more in this film. Stating that Jane and Thor's romance in the first film is more of crush. The sequel will develop that relationship and we could actually see them actually making love connection.Thor has developed a large amount of female fans thanks to Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, so it's not odd to see the romance levels amped up for the sequel.

"So while the relationship between Loki and Thor certainly has changed and has progressed, a lot of Thor 2 is picking up where it left off in terms of Jane, who you just saw for a moment on a computer monitor, and also what’s been going on in the nine realms without the Asgardians being able to use the Bifrost? I will just say it’s not good."

"Well it’s sort of the crux of the whole sequel and it’s what Hemsworth is most excited about diving into, and it’s what is the heart of story; it’s Thor and Jane, to continue that dynamic. Really they were only together for three days, and do they love each other? Do they like each other? Do they know each other? We’re acknowledging that that love story in the first movie was sort of a quick crush, essentially, over the course of three quick days in the middle of the desert. And [the heart of the movie is also] the relationship between Thor and Odin, which does change drastically as it did over the course of the first movie, and picks up and continues from there."


HELA GODDESS OF DEATH: Hela has been often pegged as Loki's daughter but things will likely change for the films. She is the ruler of the realms Hel and Nifflehiem wanting to expand her kingdom to include Valhalla the realm of dead heroes ruled by Odin. Her lust for power included a full scale attack on Asgard with her army of the dead. This seems like a great setup for second film which in terms of comic book franchises are usually the darkest films. With the Bifrost destroyed there isn't much holding Hela back from invading and conquering Valhalla.

Appointed Ruler and Goddess of the northernmost kingdom of the dead, allowing her to rule in the realms of Hel and Niffleheim. Although her dominion was only over those who did not die as heroes, as Odin was the ruler of these in Valhalla. Still, Hela often sought to expand her kingdom by conquering Valhalla as well which often brought Hela into direct conflict with both Odin and his son Thor.

Hela patiently waited for the chance to take over Valhalla and even forced her minions to build the enormous ship, Naflgar, out of the finger nails of the dead in order to attack Asgard, however this ship was destroyed by Skurge the Exocutioner and Hela was forced to begin reconstruction of the ship.

SURTUR: The fire demon is one of the oldest beings in the Norse cosmic universe and has a rather large beef with Odin and his brothers. It would be somewhat similar to the aged tension with the Frost Giants. Like Hela, Surtur could end up wreaking havoc on the other realms while the Bifrost is damaged. He previously made an alliance with the trolls which could come into play here. There was a looming threat that when the peace between Asgard and Jotunheim was broken it could lead to other conflicts.

"Surtur is a fire demon native to the extradimensional plane of Muspelheim land of the fire demons, located on the continent of Asgard, and first appears in the title Journey Into Mystery.[3] The character's first encounter with the Asgardian ruler Odin is told in flashback and establishes their enmity when Surtur is imprisoned by Odin inside the Earth after forming an alliance with the Trolls and trying to destroy the world, although he gives Odin a winged horse, hoping to be released one day.[4] Surtur reappears in the title Journey Into Mystery, having been freed by Odin's adopted son, Loki, who intends to usurp Odin and rule Asgard, having been given a portion of the Odinforce."

ULIK THE ROCK TROLL: Ulik is one of the few villains that has given Thor a run for his money during battles. He's been previously tasked by the troll king Geirrodur to steal Thor's hammer and to kidnap Jane Foster. The trolls could end up the orcs of the Thor franchise depending on the direction of the film. While in the comics they're slightly larger in the recent tie-in video game for the film they're even larger than the Frost Giants. There could be an alliance between Surtur and the Trolls leading to a full scale war on the realms and Asgard.

"Ulik belongs to a race of Rock Trolls who live in the dimension of Asgard in the "Domain of Trolls" in Nornheim. Like all trolls, Ulik has an innate hatred of the Asgardians as they were driven underground by the King of the Norse gods, Odin, and forbidden to live on the surface. Ulik is commanded by the Rock Troll King, Geirrodur, to steal Thor's enchanted hammer, Mjolnir, before an attempt to invade Asgard, leading to an extended series of battles with the Thunder God. Ulik proves to be a match for Thor, as the character possessing increasing strength and is equipped with knuckle dusters made of the metal uru (the same metal Mjolnir is composed of)."
