The young God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) has been itching for a war since he was knee-high to a lightning bolt so he can show his dad what he’s made of. He also has a few anger management issues, and gets banished to Earth where he meets up with astrophysicist Jane (Natalie Portman) who’s working on some scientific experiment out in some New Mexico town. The kind of place where aliens land and crop circles appear. Thor’s brother Loki who is actually one of the Frost Giants (sounds really scary, doesn’t it?), wants to eliminate Thor and their father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) so he can be king. Lots of destructive things happen in both universes.
Thor tells Jane what she’s looking for is the Einstein Rosen Bridge – it’s a wormhole theory on how to travel from one universe to the other, I think. It’s kind of cool and there’s celestial bodies all over the place. Thor gets his act together, saves the folks in New Mexico, and becomes worthy of his hell of a hammer. Promises Jane he’ll be back after he takes care of his brother, but then has to beat off the Frosty dudes by breaking the bridge. Stay tuned for Thor II.
