Dark and cramped. The soft red light of fire seeps through

iron slats. Inside this cage is a man, bound by chains.

It's THOR. His beard is long and his clothes are worn. That

rough, grizzled look of a man who's spent years on the road.

He awakens with a JOLT. Looks around.


Now I know what you're thinking.

Oh no! Thor's in a cage. How did

this happen?


Well, sometimes you have to get

captured just to get a straight

answer out of somebody. It's a long

story but basically I'm a bit of a

hero. See, I spent some time on

earth, fought some robots, saved

the planet a couple of times. Then

I went searching through the cosmos

for some magic, colorful Infinity

Stone things... didn't find any.

That's when I came across a path of

death and destruction which led me

all the way here into this cage...

where I met you.

Reveal that he's talking to a weird alien skeleton in chains.


How much longer do you think we'll

be here?

NOISE. Sounds of metal gears TURNING.

Suddenly the bottom DROPS OUT! Thor PLUMMETS until - SHLINK!

Chains CINCH and abruptly halt his descent. Thor dangles six

feet off the ground. Pull back to reveal we are in-

A cavernous space. The walls, floors, and ceilings are

molten rock, which has creepy glimmers of fire within it.

Stationed in the center is a volcanic rock throne, and

sitting in that throne is a charred demonic skeleton.


Thor, Son of Odin.

Thor's chain turns to reveal-

-SURTUR on his throne. Eighteen-feet-tall, flesh made of

fire, and demonic spiked horns on his skull.


Surtur. Son of a're

still alive! I thought my father

killed you, like, half a million

years ago.


I cannot die. Not until I fulfill

my destiny and lay waste to your



You know, it's funny you should

mention that because I've been

having these terrible dreams of

late. Asgard up in flames, falling

to ruins, and you Surtur are at the

center of all of them.


Then you have seen Ragnarok, the

fall of Asgard. The great prophecy--


Hang on. Hang on.

Reveal that Thor's chain is turning VERY SLOWLY.


I'll be back around shortly. I

really feel like we were connecting


After a beat, Thor rotates around to face Surtur.


Okay, so, Ragnarok. Tell me about

that. Walk me through it.

BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16 3.


My time has come. When my crown is

reunited with the Eternal Flame, I

shall be restored to my full might.

I will tower over the mountains and

bury my sword deep in Asgard's--
