Thor: The Dark World - Who Should Die in the Movie?

Posted by Anthony Mango Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Someone has to die in the upcoming sequel to Thor, entitled Thor: The Dark World...but who should that be?

First off, you might be thinking "WHY does somebody have to die?" It's because the stakes need to be raised and Thor has far too many peripheral characters NOT for someone to be killed off to do so.

Think about it. We have Thor, Odin, Fandral, Hogun, Volstagg, Lady Sif, Loki, Frigga, Heimdall, Jane, Dr. Erik Selvig, Darcy Lewis as well as possible influence from S.H.I.E.L.D. and even more potential crossovers. That's far too many, and they didn't even introduce Balder or Beta Ray Bill (though c'mon, if they do the latter, that'd be ridiculous). Speculation has been (for some reason) that Thor will lose his hand in battle, but I prefer to think that a character or two will die...and I'm hoping it's even more than two.

I'd love to see all of the humans die, particularly Erik Selvig. What purpose does he serve, now? I don't want to see him eating up any more screen time like he did with Avengers (which should have been Hank Pym's spot!). Jane Foster can die and give Natalie Portman a way out, or perhaps she can just leave with Darcy and not return in the third film of the franchise. We still have Sif that we can use as a romantic interest and she's more than capable to carry that load, considering their relationship in the comics.

Now, Earth shouldn't be the only ones to lose someone. In fact, if you want to bridge the worlds, making Thor feel like he lost someone on both grounds, someone has to die from Asgard. That person needs to be Frigga, who is essentially pointless. Plus, if Odin were to die, then Thor would need to become king, and that shouldn't happen until the third film's Ragnarok. Loki and Thor can still lose their mother and it would be a huge blow.

I'm not in favor of killing someone for the sake of killing them in every movie, but this is one wherein I think a death needs to happen. There are too many sacrificial lambs, too many opportunities to kill them off, and too much that could be gained by it to ignore.
