Brief Synopsis:
This edit featured a restructured narrative and 9 reinstated deleted scenes
Intention:
Thor is a great character but I always found his debut a little lackluster. For me the real issue was the films structure. The choice to front load the movie with huge Asgardian set pieces meant the second act drags. My edit aim was restructure the film and create and air of mystery around Thor. Having proved the concept of this edit with the original SD version of this edit I wished to rebuild it in HD using the blu ray source. This allowed me access to deleted scenes previously unavailable to me

Main aims:

#1 Reorder the narrative
#2 Reinstate several deleted scenes

#1 'Thor: Odinson' is an attempt to maintain an air of mystery around Thor and leave the audience to question whether he truly is the son of Odin. In the original when Natalie Portman finds Thor in the desert she questions where he came from leading the viewer to immediately be shown Asgard in all its glory. This edit will delay that reveal until Lady Sif and the warriors three arrive on earth effectively switching the first and second act.

#2 There are some wonderful deleted scenes which add development to both Thor and Loki. I reinstated nine deleted scenes in this edit.
Intention:

Very interesting scene repurposing but the deleted scenes really enhance a film which I already love very much, overall I really enjoyed this and feel it is pretty much a suped up version of the movie as it stands. Very good stuff :)

Pretty much my go to version from now on.
The rearranged scenes make much more sense and add a bit of mystery to Thor's character early on.
The added deleted scenes give some much needed screen time to pretty much everybody and don't feel out of place or forced.
Well done.

Malthus has done a masterful job in this fan fix of Thor. Restructuring the narrative to place the reveal of Asgard later in the film does much to add suspense and a sense of intrigue. Character development seems more complete in this edit, and the viewer is more vested in the characters as a result. Deleted scenes have been added seamlessly. Recommended viewing.
