This movie makes extensive use of actual Norse mythology (on which the "Thor" comic was based):
Wait for it.
(at around 35 mins) When Darcy picks up her TASER X26 from her bag (right before Jane backs into Thor outside the hospital), the sound of a pistol slide being maneuvered is heard. The TASER X26 does not have a slide or any moving part that can replicate that sound. Also, Darcy only picks it up and turns it around before putting it back in her bag, she doesn't move anything (safety, cartridges, battery pack).
Part of the closing credits is shot through the Bifrost, with the camera flying through the celestial realm of Yggdrasil, finally ending at Asgard. At the end, the film title appears with a small lightning strike within it.
The version of the film shows in AMC Theaters as part of a pre-Avengers Marvel Phase One marathon features an exclusive intro from Agent Coulson, talking about the film and the character. These Coulson intros were later includes as bonuses in the Avengers Phase One box set.
