December will be a little warmer because we're getting another Guidebook. No Handbook alas but we'll have something to discuss at least. Too bad that Sitwell's entry can't reference his Winter Soldier appearance.

One thing I'll be particularly curious to see is when the Guidebooks reach Agents of SHIELD. If they tackle the episodes in batches certain profiles will be a lot different than if they tackle the first season as a whole.

Excellent questions!

This is the next one in the pipeline so it's now open for No-Prizes. I wonder if The Consultant will be included, given that that short came with the Thor blu-ray. If so, between the movie itself and the short, Coulson should be good for a one-pager.

Of things not announced, I guess they might also cover the Destroyer, the Casket of Ancient Winters, and Fandral.

Was Thor ever called "Odinson" in the movie or tie-ins, or is the solicit's choice of wording simply the result of recent developments in 616?

Not sure about the Odinson bit.

Less than a week now before this is out. Place your bets for the No-Prize! Who or what will be covered beyond the solicitation?

There was only one No-Prize prediction but it was a correct one. Vanhornluke, your No-Prize is on the way for the Destroyer guess!

I'm a winner!

Like Jim Rhodes, Fandral switched actors between movies. If Guidebooks continue into Phase 2, he'll probably get an entry with Thor the Dark World.
