Story[change | change source]
The movie starts with Odin, the king of the gods, fighting some frost giants, and taking an item called The Casket of Ancient Winters. Some years later, Thor is heir to the throne of Asgard (the world of the gods), but his crowning is stopped by some Frost Giants (that were let in by his brother Loki). Thor and his friends go to Jotunheim (the world of the Frost Giants) and attack Laufey, the Frost Giant leader, but are saved by Odin. Odin is angry at Thor and sends him to Earth as a normal person. Thor lands in New Mexico and meets and develops romance with astrophysicist Jane Foster. Meanwhile in Asgard, Loki finds out he is actually Laufey’s son, and plans to ascend to the throne and sends the Destroyer (a weapon) to kill Thor. Thor dies but shows that he is worthy, and his powers come back. Thor goes back to Asgard and fights Loki, who falls off the Bifrost and dies.
