    That's long enough from now that it probably doesn't matter, but I wish the production would dictate the release date and not the other way around. IM2 probably could have stood a little more time in the oven, though i liked it.

    Looks like Prince Charming is out as Fandral and my boy Chuck Bartowski might be in!

    Funny.
    Also, just because it hasn't been mentioned here, but the release date on Thor 2 has changed, twice actually. It was moved to November 15, 2013, then moved up one week to it's current scheduled date of November 8, 2013.

    Not the Doctor! :)
    Seriously, great actor, so however the character's interpreted I'm sure he'll be a great choice.

    Meh. I don't think she added anything positive to the first film. It was a throwaway part. Hopefully her "expanded role" in Thor 2 won't also expand on her character's annoyance factor.

    Yes, it's November. The thread title needs to be changed.

    I thought she was great, but they risk pulling an Urkel by expanding a comic relief role.

    Based on the article, it sounds like the expanded role will be more than just comic relief. My guess is that that has more to do with utilizing Kat Dennings's increased star power compared to last year and less to do with wanting more one liners wedged in there.
