Thor (Chris Hemsworth), son of Odin, is the successor to the throne in Asgard. However, his rash and arrogant ways destroys the truce between Odin and Laufey, leader of the Frost Giants in Jotunheim. Odin strips Thor of his power and banishes him to Earth, so that he may learn humility and prove himself worthy of the throne.
OMG CHRIS HEMSWORTH IS SO HOT!
He put on 10kg of muscle to play Thor and I think it paid off really well. He looks good arrogant and was also funny when he brought his “ancient” ways into the modern world (ie. smashing his cup for another cup of coffee!). Norse mythology has always been interesting, so having hot people playing gods are a plus.
I liked Sif, the Goddesss of War, too. She’s the only female warrior fighting alongside Thor and she knows her weapons. Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is just really creepy and I can see right through him, man. He appears to defend his brother but he’s actually stabbing him in the back!
There’s an uncredited cameo by Jeremy Renner (HOT!) as Hawkeye and Stan Lee as always in movie adaptations of Marvel Comics characters. This movie, and the upcoming Captain America (Chris Evans) is building up to the hype of 2012’s The Avengers! Stay till the end of the credits for a sneak peek of what’s to come in The Avengers!
