Would love it if Thor took on Thanos (is obviously losing the fight, but will show all his abilities and why he's still the most powerful of the Avengers), but then have Odin come back to put Thanos in his place, and prove he's actually the most powerful being in the Galaxy.
I also like the sounds of it completely changing the setting of the MCU. That's what Captain America TWS did.

what would be cool is if Odin came back to rescue Thor from getting his ass kicked by Thanos. In this face off Odin would barely defeat Thanos. Then when Odin lets his guard down a little, he gets tricked and killed by Thanos. This establishes Odin's power and gives him a proper send off, and establishes Thanos's power and evilness.
Not really. He would stomp any villain they've taken on so far. Even those in the Thor films.
And like I said I'd be happy with a stalemate (one in which Odin looks a bit superior).
JayDaDon's right. Movie Odin needs an epic display of power. If he dies after such a display I'd be down with that. But it's silly that someone whose clearly more Powerful than the Avengers, whose charged with ruling protected all the realms , just keeps sitting on his throne on the sidelines like he's kind of useless.

Why should movie Odin beat movie Thanos! They dont have to base their power lvl on comic.
If Thanos does show in Thor 3, it makes sense for him to seem unstoppable , which in turn makes the heroes plight more hopeless for infinity war 1/2. It will make the heroes eventual victory more epic.
It will be the same if Odin looks slightly superior to Thanos, but then somehow gets killed by him. In fact that would add a lot more to their final confrontation.
Like I said, Odin would stomp any other villain seen in the MCU so far. But he just sits on the sidelines and doesn't take them on.
With someone as big a threat as Thanos, Odin needs to get off his royal butt that's for sure. And even giving Odin hell in a fight, but being his slight inferior, would take nothing away from Thanos at all. In fact it would just reinforce the idea that this guy is way above and beyond the Avengers. Because Odin is.
I agree that Odin should be shown to be superior to Thanos without the IG, but wouldn't have a problem with him getting a heroic death in the closing act. I want Thanos to be intelligent about the Asgardians, knowing he shouldn't invade there unless the scales can be tipped in his favour \(which is how Surtur gets involved.) The by Infinity War I, Thor is the one who must protect his people without Odin and finally embraces the mantle of King.
