Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment have released an updated official plot synopsis for the big screen adaptation of Thor, along with preliminary credits. No huge surprises, but a few confirmations. All the information is included, after the jump.
The Official Plot Synopsis:
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
Update: It appears that the plot synopsis is an extended version of an earlier logline that was released Summer 2009. This updated synopsis does feature more information.
