Thor: I know what you’re thinking. “Oh, no. Thor’s in a cage. How did this happen?” Well, sometimes you have to get captured just to get a straight answer out of something. It’s a long story. Basically, I’m a bit of a hero. See, I’ve spent some time on Earth… for the record, I saved the planet a couple of times. Then I went searching through the cosmos for a couple of magic colorful Infinity Stone things… but didn’t find any. That’s when I came across a path of death, and destruction. Which led me all the way here to this cage… where I met you.

The newest Thor movie in the marvel universe. this movie is about the main character Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk, his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston reprise their roles as the nordic gods, Thor and Loki.

With a budget of $180 million, it made $853 million at the box office. Along with Iron Man, Thor is the only other Marvel Studios franchise to have three different composers for each film. The three composers were Patrick Doyle, Brain Tyler and Mark Mothersbaugh. This movie was shipped to cinemas under the code name “Creature Report”. In ten days this movie grossed $650 million worldwide.

Chris Hemsworth plays Thor in the film, while his older brother Luke Hemsworth plays Thor in a play within the film. Their younger sibling Liam Hemsworth was considered for the role of Thor. Something big happens to Odin. Sir Anthony Hopkins had decided against returning as Odin, but upon reading the story, he changed his mind. Karl Urban, Jeff Golblum, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett and Benedict Cumberbatch also make cameo appearances.

Interesting/best movie scenes:

  1. Opening scene
  2. Odin’s scene
  3. Hulk vs Thor
  4. Hulk vs Thor after the fight scenece
  5. Bruce Banner back from being the Hulk for a year
  6. Revolution on gladiator planet
  7. Last action scene

Surprisingly pretty good for a superhero movie. After so many Marvel movies there is so much depth in the story. The imagery on Asgard and the other planet is amazing. So many cameos from good actors. The ending sums up well with a lot of destruction. It leaves you with not knowing if there is going to be a sequel stand-alone Thor movie again. I recommend this movie to everyone who is into Marvel characters, Fictional Nordic characters and the talented cast of actors in the film.


Thor: We have to stop her here and now, and prevent Ragnarok, the end of everything! So I’m putting together a team.

Loki: Like the old days.
