The movie starts with Loki (Tom Hiddleston), younger brother of Thor, stands before Odin ( Anthony Hopkins), father of Thor, in shackles and is sentenced to imprisonment, as Thor, alongside warriors Fandral (Zachary Levi), Volstagg (Ray Stevenson) and Sif (Jaimie Alexander), prevents invaders from Vanaheim, home of their companion Hogun (Tadanobu Asano); it’s the final battle in a two-year war to make peace in the Nine Realms.
When Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) goes missing from earth Thor goes to find her finding her in a factory. Foster awakes with a powerful energy that the Asgardian doctors can’t remove. Frigga (Rene Russo), Odin’s wife, Thor’s mother and Loki’s adoptive mother takes Foster under her wing.
