It was a gamble for Marvel to make a movie about gods and magical places. Prior to THOR, the MCU was pretty grounded with the real world. Then the movie came out, introducing us to Asgard, Norse gods, and different realms.
Suddenly the MCU was a whole lot bigger.
Of course, it also introduced us to Loki and Thor. Loki provided the villainy that brought together the first Avengers. And is arguably the most memorable villain in the MCU. (It’s Kingpin and Kilgrave for me though.)
Thor would go on to be a big part of Marvel’s movie franchise. He would show up three more times — in Avengers, Thor 2, and Avengers: Age of Ultron — and during each of those times his armor would look slightly different. I was a little bummed out about him not wearing a helmet, but I also do realize that it did kind of look ridiculous.
Not to mention Chris Hemsworth (we’re the same age, by the way). He got Thor’s arrogance down right, as well as the nobility and otherworld-ness. I remember being a bit nervous about how they were going to do Thor’s accent (because he talked in a ridiculous, Old English way in the comics), but it turned out okay. Sometimes the Australian would come out. Sometimes.
Anyway, here is Thor in his AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON outfit. When THOR: RAGNAROK comes out this year, expect more Thor characters then!
Thor Odinson is the prince of Asgard and a former member of the Avengers. When his irresponsible behavior threatened his homeland, he was stripped of his power and banished by his father Odin to Earth. While exiled on Earth, Thor learned humility, found love in Jane Foster, and helped to save his new friends from a destructive threat sent by his jealous adoptive brother Loki. In the process, Thor redeemed himself in the eyes of his father and was granted access to his power once more.
