Why asgardians are not gods in Thor, the movie?

The Destroyer arrives

When Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created Thor they didn’t have any doubt at all. Thor and any other Asgardian are gods, like many other gods from Greek, Jewish, Hindi or any other religion. In fact all of them appear in the Marvel Universe. It’s strange that in the movie the three human characters speak about the Asgardians and they decide they are alien beings from another dimension that have come to the Earth in the past and people from nordic countries (maybe because they were primitives) had thought they were gods, but they are not really gods, they are just aliens. I don’t understand the reason of the change. Does Marvel (on pictures because not on comics) have pressures from the most conservative people in the film industry? Are those pressures the same that have minimize Jim Caviezel‘s career after The Passion of the Christ? How big is the power of religious groups in the film industry? For me, Thor is and is always to be a God, the only one with a capital G.

    The same question i asked myself the whole time during the movie. Why are the conservative religious americans spoiling everything to the rest of the world, if the characters the movie is based upon have ALWAYS been considered gods in the comics. Its ridiculous.

    Oh yeah, i stumbled this, so you’ll get a few more hits.
