    Over those movies I'd introduce:

    The Wrecking Crew

Introducing an additional pantheon would undercut how they've presented Asgard and the 9 realms in the MCU. The multiple pantheons are a mess in the comics so I don't see how bringing that into the movies is in any way a good idea.

Now an exploration into divine archetypes and how the 'gods' of Asgard were perceived by other cultures would be interesting. The Greeks seeing Thor as Zeus, Odin as Hermes, etc. The Indians seeing Indra as Thor, Hela as get the idea. But to open the door to multiple pantheons would just muddy the waters.


Time travel? Maybe but I just don't see the need. It rarely works. As for Gladiator, he could work when/if the MCU brings in the X-men but not through Thor.


With Seth we again have the problem of multiple pantheons. Skurge was so undercut in the last film that the Bloodaxe would have to come from somewhere else.

    His 4th movie would involve the return of the 'real' Thor (new actor by this stage) and could tell the Thunderstrike/Bloodstrike saga.

The Masterson arc just doesn't fly in the movie universe in my opinion. DeFalco wanted to write a Spiderman story into Thor (the everyman) and the MCU is just getting their Spidey off the ground. Again, muddying they waters.
