NOTES: "Asgard" is the mythical "wonder city" mentioned in a footnote in Chapter 21 of The Iron Heel.
A double feature of sorts, the feature chronicles the first violent meeting between the Hulk and Wolverine, as well as the tale of the rampaging Hulk loose in Asgard and facing off against the mighty Thor.
Or maybe this "Seige of Asgard" is Millar and Mcniven's big swan song to Marvel?
Thor will probably take place in Asgard with a Lord of the Rings feel and then at the end he'll get the charge of taking care of earth (where he takes on the persona of Donald Blake).

"You know that Asgard is up in the sky," Olaf said.
Apparently Thor won’t take place mostly in Asgard:
From what I read on the Marvel site, (I think it was on there), is that that movie will take place mostly in Asgard, which will be really cool, ’cause then it can explain Thor's origin and explain how him and Dr. Blake are the same person.
Cap is going to be a WW2 movie, while 50-60% of Thor will take place in Asgard.
All I can say is that I'm damned excited to see how this story is going to end because the Asgard were the greatest on SG-1.
