I know ONTD is a bunch of haters, but it makes me so angry to read that a replacement actor would have to dumb themselves down to play Thor.
Let’s not even talk about what this says about Hemsworth, but THOR IS NOT DUMB.
Even if somebody only knows the movies, where do they get the idea that’s he’s dumb? He’s moving in a world that is completely foreign to him. Being unaware of foreign customs and feeling uncomfortable with it doesn’t make anyone stupid. He’s immature at the beginning of Thor, like most guys at the (relative) age, but at the end he’s clearly matured and even more so in The Avengers.
Where do people, and a lot of writers, get the idea that Thor is a brainless jock? Clinging to old body type cliches, well, that is dumb.
I see so much fic where he’s portrayed like a bimbo who doesn’t get the simplest jokes and only thinks with his cock. It makes me angry, because while he’s clearly not a book person it still requires a lot of skill and wit to become a respected and skilled warrior. He’s naive maybe, in a way that he maintains a blind spot for the people he loves for a long time. I don’t think he’s blind to them, he’s just like most people and decides to not acknowledge that something is wrong until it can’t be ignored any longer.
I could talk about this for ages, and also about how Loki is not an innocent lamb, GDI. Sometimes I just wonder if people see the same movies (and read the same comics) that I see.
