The Enchantress was initially going to appear in the film; concept art of her exists online. Her cousin Lorelei would eventually appear in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013), with Sif in pursuit of her.

Zachary Levi was approached for the role of Fandral, but had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts. Dominic Cooper was rumored but Stuart Townsend was then cast in the role. But days before filming began he left the role because of creative differences with the filmmakers. Finally Josh Dallas took the role. Levi would later play Fandral in Thor: The Dark World (2013).

A model of the Infinity Gauntlet, an all powerful weapon capable of controlling aspects of reality (soul, time, space, power & mind) in the "Marvel Comics" universe, was constructed for this film. The model is made from bronze and copper (with jewels made from resin) and weighs 60 pounds. It was built to be operational so that animatronics could be built on it.

The hammer landed about 50 miles to the west of the town (according to the man in the diner). When Sif and Co. arrive, the SHIELD agent at the console says that it was about 50 miles to the north-west, placing it 75-80 miles from the town. Yet, when the Destroyer arrived, which was at the same location as Sif and Co, it was clearly on the outskirts of town.

Thor is holding his hammer in his right hand while he comes to the Bifrost and confronts Loki. When Loki sends him flying and he falls on his back and his hammer hits the floor, the hammer is in his left hand. It's back in his right hand after he gets up.

What other mentions of the Marvel characters are there?
(1) Erik tells Jane and Darcy of a fellow scientist he once knew who studied gamma rays and who came into contact by SHIELD who then went missing shortly afterwards. If this is a set up for The Avengers movie then its likely he is referring to Bruce Banner, The Hulk, although others speculate it could be Hank Pym or Betty Ross but neither of them are in The Avengers movie. Also, both Erik and Banner will be in The Avengers movie and so could have a 'reunion' scene. (2) The special SHIELD agent at the crater site with the bow and arrow who has Thor in his sights is Clint Barton, AKA Hawkeye. (3) The big, strongly-built black agent who fights with Thor in the scene previously mentioned could be Luke Cage, or a reference to this character. (4) When the Destroyer first appears and is surrounded by the SHIELD agents, one SHIELD agent asks Agent Coulsen, "Is that one of Stark's?" to which he replies, "I dunno. That guy never tells me anything." They are of course referring to Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man. (5) Nick Fury appears in the post credits sequence.
What happens in the scene that is shown after the end credits?
Erik Selvig meets Nick Fury who shows him the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube that Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) searches for in Captain America: The First Avenger, set in WWII. Fury compliments Selvig's intelligence and asks him to help study the Cube. As the view pans to a nearby mirror, Loki is shown in the reflection, observing the cube; when Fury says the Cube can be an unlimited source of power, Loki says, "Well, I guess that's worth a look." Selvig then says the same to Fury, which suggests Loki is able to subtly influence people, something that is also shown in The Avengers.
Does Stan Lee make a cameo in this movie?
Stan Lee does make a short cameo in the film. He is a truck driver at the crater where Mjolnir landed.
