This character was a major question mark on whether or not he would successfully make the transition over to the big screen from the comic book page. Thanks to actor Chris Hemsworth in the title role, along with Tom Hiddleston as his foster brother Loki, Sir Anthony Hopkins as his father, Odin; and Natalie Portman as human love interest Jane Foster, along with the smart direction of Kenneth Branagh, they pull it off. The plot deals with Thor being made humble from his arrogance that threatens the galactic peace that Odin has brokered and the efforts of Loki to screw everything up.
Comments Hemsworth, "At the beginning of this film, he’s certainly a brash, cocky warrior who’s about to inherit the keys to the kingdom, and his father thinks that he’s not ready. It’s the journey of him learning some humility through the film. I think he’s one of those people who has his heart in the right place. He’s doing what he’s doing for his family and to protect the kingdom, and he thinks it’s the right way to do it. It just happens to be a very aggressive way of doing it, which probably isn’t the right way. It’s about tempering that raw emotion that he drives off most of the time, into the right direction."
