Plot Details of 'Thor' Leaked
The first official trailer for "Thor" was debuted by Paramount Pictures almost a month ago but there is still plenty that we don't know about the film. However, some details have now been leaked to provide spoilers ahead of the film release.
The major spoilers first came out on SuperHeroHype forums and were then confirmed by Comic Book Movie's source. [SPOILER ALERT!] It says the film will start with Natalie Portman's Jane, Kat Dennings' Darcy and Stellan Skarsgard's Professor Andrews in a van out in the New Mexico desert observing a phenomenon in the sky. This is when Chris Hemsworth's Thor drops to Earth. Jane accidentally hits him with her van and she does that again later in the film.
Over at Asgard, Thor is seen in a flashback scene where he is about to be anointed king by his dad, Anthony Hopkins' Odin, when two Frost people infiltrate the palace and try to steal a "casket" which Odin got during a battle with the Frost people on their planet. Thor tries to convince his dad to wage war against the Frost people after they broke the truce with Asgard.
Odin refuses; Thor, Loki and 3 other soldiers end up going to the frost planet alone. Odin comes to the rescue just as the Frost people are about to kill Thor and his warriors.
Inside his detention cell, Thor is visited by Loki who tells him that his father has died. Thor confronts the Destroyer, and apologizes to Loki (via a conduit with the Destroyer) about what caused him to be resentful of Thor after becoming king of Asgard. It was actually Loki who helped the Frost people infiltrate the Asgard palace. Loki made a deal with the Frost king that he would help the Frost king kill Odin in exchange for Loki assuming complete control of Asgard (it will later be revealed that Loki was lying to the Frost king).
Thor destroys the Destroyer by a blow to the head by his Hammer. A romantic scene sees Thor sharing a kiss with Jane before going back to Asgard to confront Loki, who kills the Frost king just as he is about to kill Odin.
Out on the rainbow bridge, Thor defeats Loki. He and Loki are hanging along the edge of the bridge and are about to be sucked into a wormhole when Odin (who regained consciousness when Thor returned to Asgard) comes to their rescue. Loki tells Odin that he "did this all for him", but Odin replies that he didn't want peace "like this". Loki realizes he failed his father once again and lets go of the bridge, falling into the wormhole.
Back in the Asgard palace, all is well. Thor, on what remains of the Rainbow bridge, asks the Gatekeeper (Idris Elba) what Jane is doing back on Earth and he replies, "She is searching for you." Thor had to destroy the rainbow bridge (with his Hammer), which was his only way to get to Earth, because Loki threatens to go to Earth and kill Jane. Final shot of the film is of Jane, Darcy and Professor Andrews inside a room working on their science equipment.
Stan Lee's cameo is additionally described. He plays a truck driver who tries to pull the Hammer out of the ground (in the crater scene shown at the end of "Iron Man 2") by chaining it to the back of his truck. He fails in the attempt.
Said to be seen during a screening of a rough cut from upcoming "Thor", not all of the details mentioned above will appear in the film. Even if they all do appear, it may be not in the chronological order.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the action fantasy movie will hit theaters across the nation on May 6, 2011.
