never did get the context of Marvel Thor? is it Norse Thor in modern times?

When they rebooted Avengers a few years ago as 'The Ultimates', they made Thor into a hippie-come-activist, who thought he was a norse god. Everyone else however, assumed he was just another superpowered being - with slight mental issues. They did quite a good job with the is-he/isn't he storyline, and it was one of the more interesting character arcs in the book.
They do seem to be using some of the ideas from Ultimates (Black Nick Fury, Shield as the controlling body, and mostly the same characters), but i think with Thor they will be keen to put the original essence of the character on screen for his first cinema outing. Also the possibly insane angle probably won't play well with Thor as the main protagonist.
The only film im worried about in all this is Captain America, its gonna take alot to convince me that marvel can pull that one out of the bag, the other characters and superheros so far have shocked me on how they have managed to loose the comic campness and be transferred into reality, but even the name captain america makes me cringe and i cant see how they can suit him up and give him that shield without me throwing up my popcorn when im in the cinema.
HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON
Hopefully they go with the sort of Captain America that's present in Civil War, where he's willing to go against anyone even the Government in defence of his beliefs- I can't see him liking the current way that America (and the rest of the West) does things.
ooooo screen shot i like. Thats the guy who played george kirk in star trek ? its looking ok i hope they can pull it off. I cant wait for the the avengers movie and its been directed by one of my fav directors joss whedon so extra bonus. In regards to the captain america movie i hope they go the civil war direction too. It fact they should just make a civil war movie it would be awesome. on IMDB it says the guy who played jonny storm in FF is playing cap which is crap because if they ever actually mix any of the marvel world together they would have to recast.

Looks kinda weedy to be a thunder god to me.
one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
