I was disappointed that the other Jane scene (where she’s working with Asgardian technology indoors) was deleted from the movie, but that there’s another one really kind of frustrates me because this scene is everything I wanted!!!
"I am so taking this apart!"
THAT IS WHAT I WANTED. I LITERALLY WANTED A SCENE OF JANE TAKING APART AN ASGARDIAN ALARM CLOCK OR SOMETHING AND THEN! HERE’S A SCENE WHERE SHE WANTS TO TAKE THEIR TOY APART TO SEE HOW IT WORKS.
She’s so curious about this place and there’s so many cool things here and she could learn SO MUCH and she’s so happy and upbeat and it’s cute/funny and there’s even some really good shots of Asgard (and Asgardian clothing! that’s not just warrior outfits!) and it was really delightful!
But I also want it for showing just how advanced Asgard is to Earth, that their toys would advance Earth science by decades, imagine what the really good stuff could do! They are a really advanced civilization and I think a lot of times people forget that, because the Bifrost just looks so “magic”-like or because they do have magic, that it all just gets handwaved away as “magic”, which is simple and not scientific, so you get stuff like Thor being astounded by microwaves in fic when, no, look at their toys! So much more advanced!
(This is entirely different from Thor being like, “wtf is this stone age techonlogy supposed to do? you Midgardians are all very strange”, which I approve of hardcore.)
Basically, all I want is Jane wanting to take everything apart and pretty shots of Asgard’s courtyards and showing off their technology. And bless this scene for giving it to us. ;__;
And I’m 100% serious that, had I written this movie, there would have been a scene of Jane trying to smuggle a ton of shit out of Asgard, where she’s constantly stuffing children’s toys or alarm clocks or egg timers into her dress until she’s literally waddling down the Bifrost and scoffing, “What? NO! I wouldn’t take stuff home with me, I definitely do not have an Asgardian holoprojector pushed up against a very uncomfortable place.” Meanwhile she looks like she’s about to give birth to triplets because her dress is so stuff full of things.
