Official plot synopsis for Marvel’s THOR
Our good friend Peter over at /Film has got the official synopsis for Marvel’s 2011 release of THOR. Peter does note that this synopsis “is an extended version of an earlier logline that was released Summer 2009.” However, this updated version does include some new information and firms up a lot of the chatter that has been floating around since the Chris Hemsworth-starring, Kenneth Branagh-directed project first got off the ground.
Hit the jump to see the official plot synopsis!
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
