Okay. But let’s talk about Thor for a second. Thor does not get enough love and (Loki forgive me) he is honestly one of the best fucking characters Marvel has. And it’s shown so simply and so beautifully right here. He is so fucking chill about everything. Obviously, he doesn’t live in space, he lives in Asgard. But he knows everyone thinks he’s kinda like an alien, and he just goes along with it because why not? These humans are funny in their lack of understanding, but it’s an endearing kind of funny. Just like in the first movie, where Darcy tells him to smile so she can take a picture of him and he has no fucking clue what she’s doing or what a phone is and it could kill him for all he knows but he just fucking smiles and keeps eating his delicious pancakes because he’s just so chill like that. And if you look at his face in the first gif, it’s very serious and concentrated but the moment Darcy starts talking to him he loosens up and is like “Muscles? Ah, yes I suppose I am quite muscular. Oh, she’s inquiring about Asgard. But she called it space. She seems confused as to my origins, but it’s not of import. I like space, that’s a good name. I shall call it space too.”
And that little head nod he does back to her in the last gif. I’m dead. Deceased. Murdered from Thor cuteness.
He’s just.. ugh, Thor doesn’t get enough appreciation. There are so many little things he does that go ignored but no more. His complete adorableness will be appreciated.

Part of this is certainly based on his sweet, open nature, but part will also be biology. The reason why his species was so evolutionarily successful is most likely that they adapt so quickly to new situations and surroundings, different planets and so on. Thor is super quick at noticing what’s going on around him, what people belonging to other species say and do and how they mean it, so he knows when a human is joking and when not, and which words he needs to use in order to be understood.
Still, if he was an arrogant alien arse, he could just dismiss this behaviour as lowly, but being the fluffteddy Marvel’s Thor (movie version) is, he plays along and enjoys the banter. He likes making new friends, he needs new friends desperately in the first movie, and the Lord knows this dude doesn’t have much to smile about by the time of the second - so why miss a chance?
