Ashley Miller, Zack Stentz, & Don Payne
On the blackness of SPACE, beautiful and mysterious, strewn
with a billion stars. Atop a building, a wrought-iron sign --
a HAMMER-WIELDING BLACKSMITH -- spins listlessly in the wind
as a swirling breeze kicks up. A hint of what's to come.
1 EXT. PUENTE ANTIGUO, NEW MEXICO - NIGHT 1 1
A main street extends before us in this one-horse town, set
amid endless flat, arid scrubland. A large SUV slowly moves
down the street and heads out of town.
2 EXT. SUV - NIGHT 2 2
The SUV sits parked in the desert. Suddenly, the roof panels
of the SUV FOLD OPEN. The underside of the panels house a
variety of hand-built ASTRONOMICAL DEVICES, which now point
at the sky. JANE FOSTER (late 20's) pops her head through
the roof. She positions a MAGNETOMETER, so its monitor
calibrates with the constellations above. It appears to be
cobbled together from spare parts of other devices.
We hear a loud BANG followed by muffled CURSING from below.
Jane offers a hand down to ERIK SELVIG (60) who emerges as
well, rubbing his head.
Oh-- watch your head.
Thanks. So what's this "anomaly"¬ù
of yours supposed to look like?
It's a little different each time.
Once it looked like, I don't know,
melted stars, pooling in a corner
of the sky. But last week it was a
rolling rainbow ribbon--
"Racing "Àúround Orion?"¬ù I've
always said you should have been a
poet. Jane reigns in her
excitement. She tries for dignity.
Hey, Darcy. Pass up the bubbly and
my gloves, will you?
Intern DARCY LEWIS (20) hands Jane
a bottle of Champagne and a pair of
gloves through the window. Jane
passes it to Selvig to hold while
she pulls on the old gloves -- too
large and masculine for her small
hands. He starts to unwrap the
foil, and she stops his hand with
an excited grin.
Not until you see it!
(re: the gloves)
I recognize those. Think how proud
he'd be to see you now. Jane's grin
fades to a sad smile.
The benefit of the doubt. The two
stare out at the sky expectantly. A
long beat while they scan the
skies. Nothing. Jane's worried.
It's never taken this long before.
Darcy calls up from the front seat.
Can I turn on the radio?
(an edge to her voice)
Sure, if you like rocking out to
KFRM, "All agriculture, all the
Worried, Jane heads back down into the vehicle.
3 INT. SUV - NIGHT 3 3
The SUV is bathed in the glow of high-tech monitoring
equipment and laptops, some looking like they're held
together with duct tape. Jane opens a well-worn NOTEBOOK of
handwritten notes and calculations. Selvig watches the
frustrated Jane with sympathy.
The anomalies are always
precipitated by geomagnetic storms.
She shows him a complicated CHART
she's drawn in the book, tracking
occurrences and patterns.
The last seventeen occurrences have
been predictable to the minute... I
just don't understand. Something
catches Darcy's eye out the
driver's side mirror. She adjusts
it. In the distance, ODD GLOWING
CLOUDS form in the skies over the
Northeastern end of the desert.
Jane SHUSHES her, leafs through her notes. The bottle of
champagne begins to vibrate.
There's got to be some new
variable... Or an equipment
The lights and equipment in the SUV begin to FLICKER around
them. The computer monitors SQUELCH with static.
I don't think there's anything
wrong with your equipment... The
champagne bottle starts to RATTLE
noisily now as it shakes more
violently. Jane and Selvig notice.
They watch it curiously, pressure building up inside it,
when the cork EXPLODES out of it. Champagne goes spewing
everywhere -- over equipment, over Jane.
I think you want to see this. Darcy
points out the window. Jane and
Selvig look out. Over the desert --
MASSIVE CLOUDS OF RAINBOW LIGHT
Churn in the sky. The three stare, dumbfounded.
That's your "subtle"¬ù aurora?!
No-- yes! Let's go!
4 EXT. DESERT - MOMENTS LATER 4 4
The roof panels still open, the SUV races towards the
strange event, Jane, amazed by the sight, stands with half
her body out the roof, taking video of the light storm
before them. The SUV hits a bump. Jane nearly flies out.
Selvig grabs her, yanks her back in.
Jane grins, thrilled, pumped with adrenaline.
Isn't this great?! A thought
You're seeing it too, right? I'm
That's debateable. Put your seat
The SUV lurches.
6 EXT. DESERT 6 6
Winds HOWL around the SUV now. Up ahead, spiraling down from
out of the clouds comes --
AN ENORMOUS TORNADO
Suffuse with the strange rainbow light, ROARING like a
thousand freight trains as it touches down.
7 INT. SUV 7 7
Selvig looks up through the still-open sunroof at the
enormous glowing funnel cloud with wonder.
Jane clambers into the front seat, beside Darcy. She leans
way out the window, TAPING the storm.
You've gotta get us closer so I can
take a magnetic reading. Darcy
Yeah, right! Good one!
Oh God, you're serious...
You want those college credits or
8 EXT. SUV 8 8
The SUV tears across a field towards the tornado, Jane
leaning out the window, taping the event. The SUV disturbs
two RAVENS perched on a cactus as they race past. The birds
take flight, when -- KRAKABOOM! A huge BOLT OF LIGHTNING
strikes down through the center of the funnel cloud before
them with a terrifying intensity.
9 INT. SUV 9 9
The SUV rocks from the blast. Darcy's had enough. She turns
the wheel, starts to head away.
Keep the credits. I'll intern at
What are you doing?!
Saving our lives! Jane grabs the
wheel, jerks it hard the other way.
They struggle for control, when the
headlights fall on --
Directly in their path, stumbling
through the winds. Darcy slams on
the brakes, Jane turns the wheel
hard to avoid him. The SUV swerves -
- but too late.
10 EXT. BIFROST LANDING SITE (EARTH) 10 10
The side of the SUV slams into the man with a THUD, sending
him flying. The car SKIDS to a stop.
11 INT. SUV 11 11
Jane, Darcy, and Selvig trade shocked looks, breathing hard.
They peer through the dust clouds, unable to see through. A
paralyzed moment, then they all leap out of the car.
12 EXT. BIFROST LANDING SITE (EARTH) 12 12
The three race from the SUV with flashlights. Jane spots the
man lying on the ground. He's dressed in tattered clothing,
charred and blackened.
I think that was legally your
Get the first aid kit. Darcy heads
back inside the SUV as Jane,
concerned, kneels next to the man.
Selvig hovers, protectively. She
gently turns his head to the light,
and we see him clearly for the
first time. He is magnificently
handsome, long blonde hair flowing
around his classically sculpted
features. She cups her hands around
his face, as if willing the life
back into him.
Come on, big guy. Do me a favor and
don't be dead, okay? Open your eyes
and look at me. Suddenly, he
GROANS, and she's startled, then
relieved, as his eyes flutter open.
She looks deep into his confused,
azure eyes, which at last focus on
her own. Locking onto them.
For a moment, they each forget to breathe. The connection is
broken as Darcy returns with the kit. She freezes when she
sees how gorgeous the man is.
Wow. Does he need CPR? Because I
A flustered Jane smooths her hair and sits back on her
heels. She looks up at Selvig. Back to being a scientist.
--are dilating. That's a good sign.
We still have to get him to a

Immediately, Jane. Jane sighs and
nods, regretfully watching the
storm EVAPORATE above their heads.
A thought strikes her.
Where did he come from? They
exchange puzzled looks, as we move
up through the last glowing
remnants of the storm, and into:
EARTH spins slowly before us as we hear a voice, deep and
resonant -- the voice of HEIMDALL, Gatekeeper of Asgard.
Questions, they've always asked
questions -- this race called man,
on this planet they call earth.
Passionately longing to know how
they are connected to the heavens.
We pull away from the planet, widening, past other worlds,
cosmic debris -- leaving first our solar system, then our
In ages past, they looked to us as
gods, for indeed so many times we
saved them from calamity.
HEIMDALL (V.O.) (CONT'D)
We tried to show them how their
world was but one of the Nine
Realms of the Cosmos, linked to all
others by the branches of
Yggdrasil... We pull back until we
see it -- YGGDRASIL. Immense,
sprawling, like a quasar or a
nebula twisted into the vague shape
of a TREE, its branches of glowing
energy stretching out into the
black void of space.
...the Worlds Tree. Nine Realms in
a universe of wonder, beauty, and
terror that they barely
We move in through Yggdrasil, until we reach what looks like
a galaxy, slowly spinning before us.
But for all their thirst for
knowledge, they let our lessons
fall into myth and dreams. Where
did he come from? He came from us,
the proudest race of warriors the
Worlds have ever seen. He came from
this -- the greatest Realm the
universe has ever known. We move
through the galaxy's mists and
astral matter, then over and up,
through a band of prismatic color
to reveal what's on the other side:
HEIMDALL (V.O.) (CONT'D)
He came... from Asgard!
14 EXT. ASGARD - DAY 14 14
Beautiful beyond imagination. We fly over the magnificent
landscape of the Realm, through the gleaming capital city,
modern yet timeless.
15 EXT. ODIN'S PALACE - DAY 15 15
The palace rises countless stories tall, gleaming with an
other-worldly majesty, towering high above the Realm
sprawled out before it. We move towards a large window of
the palace, where a FIGURE
Stares out at his kingdom. The
ravens fly up to the balcony, land
at his side.
16 INT. ODIN'S CHAMBERS - DAY 16 16
Odin turns away from the window. His wife FRIGGA sits at a
vanity and tries different earrings before the mirror.
Do you think he's ready?
He thinks he is. He has his
He'll need his father's wisdom.
And his humility? Odin reacts.
Thor won't be alone. Loki will be
at his side to give him counsel.
Have faith in your sons.
Yes, but Thor's still a boy. He
could be a great King... Odin
stops, notices HIS HAND SHAKING. It
seems to be out of synch temporally
with the rest of the world, leaving
a trail as it moves. He stares at
it determinedly, concentrating,
trying to stop the strange event
through the force of his sheer
Finally, the occurrence subsides, his hand normal once more.
A worried Frigga covers his hand with her own.
...if we only had more time.
For once, our son needs something
we cannot provide.
I can fight it a little longer...
No. You've put it off too long! I
worry for you.
He touches her cheek.
I've destroyed demons and monsters,
devastated whole worlds, laid waste
to mighty kingdoms, and still you
worry for me?
Not today. Now come kiss your
king... while I'm still king. He
pulls her close, and they kiss.
Directly under the throne room, a gloomily lit hall. Banners
hang on either side to form a corridor down the middle of
the fire lit room. Giant doors open at one end. A huge
figure silhouetted against the bright light beyond walks
forward. In slo-mo, we recognize the unmistakable shape of
the God of Thunder. Hammer in hand, he reaches the end of a
raised platform. An ATTENDANT hands the figure a goblet of
wine. He downs it quickly, hurls it towards the fire
The cup smashes, the alcohol causes the fire to glow
intensely -- and, for a moment, brightly lit, and seen full
length, like a King to be, is THE MIGHTY THOR. He proceeds
down stops, past camera, and down the center of the Hall. We
follow from behind and see at the other end, massively
shadowed on one of the great banners, the shape of two great
horns. As Thor approaches, the horn shapes move, and then,
from the shadows at the side, emerges LOKI, wearing his
horned headpiece. Like Thor, he is dressed for a great
ceremony. They stand by a brazier at the foot of steps that
lead up to the crowded throne room.
Have you ever known me to be

The Attendant stifles a laugh. Loki notices, doesn't like
it. He gestures towards the goblet in the Attendant's hand.
EELS pour over the sides of the goblet, slithering out and
across the terrified Attendant's hand. He SCREAMS, hurls the
goblet to the ground. Loki chuckles.
Loki gestures to the writhing eels on the ground. They turn
back to spilled wine, the illusion shattered.
Now that was just a waste of good
Just a bit of fun.

Right, my friend? The Attendant
isn't so sure. Thor dons his EAGLE-

Thor searches his brother's face, sees no trace of irony.
He's either speaking from his heart or he's a very, very
good liar. Maybe both. Thor puts an appreciative hand on his
The two brothers take in the moment a beat, then:

Thor makes the final adjustments to his ceremonial wear.
How do I look?
Like a king.
They hear the blast of a CEREMONIAL HORN.

Loki casts him a wary look.
I'll be along. Go on. Loki heads
inside the palace without his
17A INT. ANTECHAMBER - NIGHT 17A 17A
VOLSTAGG combs his great beard in preparation for the big
event. As he does, he's surprised to find a stray GRAPE
stuck in the beard. He pulls it out, looks around, then
eagerly pops it into his mouth and gobbles it down. FANDRAL
checks his reflection in a mirror, smooths out his
moustache, gives himself a dashing smile. A PRETTY MAIDEN
holds the mirror before him, as other MAIDENS look on
Thank you, love.
(to the Maidens)
Now who'd like to polish my sword
The giddy Maidens eagerly raise their hands. HOGUN stands
staring ahead grimly, his hands folded in front of him,
amidst the hustle and bustle of the ATTENDANTS and the
ceremony preparations going on around him. A HELPFUL
ATTENDANT approaches him and starts to polish his armor.
Hogun turns his head, gives him a look. Intimidated, the
Attendant quickly backs away. From behind, we see a WOMAN IN
CEREMONIAL ARMOR take off her SWORD and set it on a table,
then her SHIELD, then several HIDDEN DAGGERS and small, yet
intimidating WEAPONS. We reveal that it's SIF, looking
radiant. She eyes the weapons on the table.
(to the weapons)
I'll miss you.
