The warrior Thor (Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live among humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Portman) teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth.

According to Kevin Feige, the filmmakers placed the Foo Fighters song "Walk" in the film because they thought its lyrics were strangely appropriate for the film: "If you asked two months ago if we would have a Foo Fighters song in this movie, I would have said I don't think so. But we heard the song, and it just has these eerie appropriate lyrics and themes. Ken in particular just loved it with these lyrics about learning to walk again and the way that fit the themes of the movie about redemption, learning to be a hero." See more »
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). See more »
Part of the closing credits is shot in a Superman (1978)-esque sequence, with the camera flying through the cosmic realm of Yggdrasil, finally ending at Asgard. At the close, the film title appears with a small lightning strike within it. See more »
Why aren't there any fans working for this movie?! I saw this movie with my brother. We are two fans of comic-book heroes. I admit I went to the movie thinking "Why did they not cast that viking from 13th Warrior?", "Why are they going for the cute guy instead of making Thor really scary and north like?!". The reason: Hollywood is getting stupider with every film. No more suspense, no more nothing. Money, money, money.... See this movie once and then never again. The acting is awful, Natalie Portman is done making good movies and I feel so bad that Anthony Hopkins really involved his name in this movie. P.S.: Thor's hammer looks like it's made of plastic, same as Green Goblins plastic outfit from Spider Man 1.
