Robert Downey Jr.,
The warrior Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Sir Anthony Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live amongst humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Natalie 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 this movie's science advisor Sean Carroll, the Bifröst is, and was meant to be called, a wormhole, but Kevin Feige felt it was "too 1990s" a term to use (given that the Stargate series had popularized the phrase, and had also featured Norse gods). So a new phrase was used: "an Einstein-Rosen Bridge". See more »

Upon re-watching Thor tonight for the first time in nearly seven years, I was thoroughly entertained. Thor is a well made film and a worthy entry of the God of Thunder into the MCU. Tom Hiddleston does a great job as Loki and Chris Hemsworth is awesome as Thor. This film does have cliche, especially with the love story between Thor and Jane (Natalie Portman). It's sometimes silly but doesn't detract too much. This film does a good job at introducing information to us about the outer realms that will be important in the MCU for years to come. The special effects lack at times and there are some lazy edit jobs during some major action sequences. The charm of Thor and his discovery of what has happened to him after he is sent to earth is really a fun part of this film and it is rather enjoyable to watch. In the end I was quite entertained and I did enjoy Thor. It's a good film and a solid entry into the early days of the MCU.
