THOR, A CHARACTER IN MANY FILMS

Thor, famous god of Norse mythology, valiant warrior, protector of Asgard and holder of the powerful hammer Mjolnir. Indeed, when you see all the hats he wears, it's not surprising to see him appear in so many films. So we decided to make a list of films and series in which he appears. We'd like to warn you before anything else:

  • These are films, which were sometimes made for the sole purpose of having an inspirational character appear, so the stories may not accurately reflect the stories of Norse mythology
  • We'll summarise all of these films for you, but we promise not to spoil ! Feel free to tell us which ones you had already seen.

THOR'S CELEBRATED TRILOGY

We couldn't tell you about Thor without telling you about Marvel's trilogy (soon to be quadrilogy). It is undoubtedly thanks to them that this god of thunder has become such an iconic character in the eyes of the general public !

As said before, beware of the more purist among you, if you venture into these films, you will surely find inconsistencies with the true stories of Norse mythology. We can't blame them, it's thanks to them that our favourite god has become so well known.

Now that you've got the main info, let's move on to the summary (guaranteed to be spoiler-free). This is the first film in the quadrilogy, so to give you a good context, we'll start at the beginning (so far so good). It starts in 965, the giants decide to invade the Earth thanks to the chest of ancient winters (a source of enormous power). Odin arrives with his army of gods and manages to push all the giants back into their world, and takes the opportunity to get the chest back. During this battle, he lost his eye as well as many Asgardians.

Many centuries later, a ceremony takes place, during which Thor is supposed to inherit the throne from his father, Odin. This is without counting on the arrival of the giants who are there to retrieve the powerful chest, they fail but Thor's ego gets the better of him, and he decides, accompanied by some friends to go fight the giants in their world to make them pay. The battle was complicated, and it was finally Odin who came to save them all, after forbidding them to go.

Disappointed by his son's behaviour, Odin decides to deprive his son of his powers and exile him to Earth, where he meets Jane. In order to return to Asgard, he will have to show enough dignity in this new world.

thor the dark world


Centuries ago, Bor, Odin's father fought relentlessly against the dark elves, major enemies of the Asgardians. The dark elves fought with a super-powerful energy source: Aether. The Asgardians thought they were rid of this threat : the Aether had been hidden in Asgard for years.

As the film unfolds, Loki has been sentenced to life in prison, due to the crimes committed on Earth in the Avengers film. Meanwhile, Thor is still on his quest to pacify the 9 realms. Only, an event is approaching: the 9 realms will be aligned a few days later, creating portals between each realm.

It is Jane, Thor's friend, who stumbles upon a portal and ends up propelled into a new world where she will be possessed by the Aether. Heimdall, who is a god who can watch over all 9 worlds simultaneously, warns Thor that he can't see her anymore and that it's worrying. Thor leaps to Earth, finds Jane and takes her back to Asgard.

Malekith, king of the dark elves, is awakened by the power of the Aether within Jane and attacks Asgard with his army, it is Thor and his friends who will take it upon themselves to repel him.

We are once again plunged into the unviers of the 9 worlds where we see Thor, locked up in Muspellheim. During his confinement, he talks with his executioner : Surtur, who reveals that Asgard is defenseless since Thor's father, Odin, left it. Thor, in a rage, manages to free himself by taking Surtur's crown with him.

On returning to Asgard, he realises that everything had indeed changed. Heimdall has been replaced by Skurge while Asgard is ruled by Loki. Thor takes his brother to Earth who, with the help of Doctor Strange, goes to find Odin. It is in Norway that the latter is found, in a disused retirement home.

Odin reveals that his time is coming, but that his death would be catastrophic for the Asgardians. His death would lead to the release of Thor and Loki's older sister, Hela, goddess of hell, who also wishes to gain access to the throne of Asgard.

It is precisely during the absence of the 2 gods that Hela takes the opportunity to go to Asgard and devastate everything in her path, killing one by one the warriors opposing her. Thor and Loki are thus forced to fight a merciless battle against their sister in order not to see their world annihilated.
