Thor: The Dark World

Synopsis: Thousands of years ago, a race of beings known as Dark Elves tried to send the universe into darkness by using a weapon known as the Aether. Warriors from Asgard stop them but their leader Malekith escapes to wait for another opportunity. The warriors find the Aether and since it cannot be destroyed, they try to hide it. In the present day, Jane Foster awaits the return of Thor although it has been two years since they last saw once another. In the meantime, Thor has been trying to bring peace to the nine realms. Jane discovers an anomaly similar to the one that brought Thor to Earth. She goes to investigate, finds a wormhole, and is sucked into it. Back on Asgard, Thor wishes to return to Earth but his father, Odin refuses to let him. Thor learns from Heimdall, who can see into all of the realms, that Jane disappeared.

Long before the birth of light,

there was darkness.

And from that darkness

came the Dark Elves.

Millennia ago,

the most ruthless of their kind, Malekith

sought to transform our universe

back into one of eternal night.

Such evil was possible

through the power of the Aether,

an ancient force of infinite destruction.




Asgard ' s forces are upon us.




The noble armies of Asgard,

led by my father, King Bor,

waged a mighty war

against these creatures.






Send in the Kursed!




As the Nine Worlds

converged above him,

Malekith could at last

unleash the Aether.






But Asgard ripped

the weapon from his grasp.

Without it, the Dark Elves fell.



With the battle all but I082',

Malekith sacrificed his own people

in a desperate attempt

to lay waste to Asgard's army.



Their deaths will mean our survival.

This war is far from over.

Malekith was vanquished,

and the Aether was no more.

Or so we were led to believe.

Sire, the Aether. Shall we destroy it?

If only we could.

But its power is too great.

Bury it deep.

Somewhere no one will ever find it.



Hello, Mother.

Have I made you proud?

Please, don't make this worse.

Define "worse."


I will speak to the prisoner alone.


I really don't see

what all the fuss is about.

Do you not truly feel

the gravity of your crimes?

Wherever you go, there is war, ruin,

and death.

I went down to Midgard to rule the

people of Earth as a benevolent god.

Just like you.

We are not gods.

We are born, we live, we die.

Just as humans do.

Give or take 5,000 years.

All this because Loki desires a throne.

It is my birthright.

Your birthright was to die

as a child.

Cast out onto a frozen rock.

If I had not taken you in,

you would not be here now to hate me.

If I am for the axe,

then for mercy's sake,

just swing it.

It's not that I don't love our little talks,

it's just...

I don't love them.

Frigga is the only reason

you're still alive,

and you will never see her again.

You will spend the rest of your days

in the dungeons.

And what of Thor'?

You'll make that witless oaf king

while I rot in chains.

Thor must strive to undo

the damage you have done.

He will bring order to the Nine Realms

and then, yes...

He will be king.










I've got this completely under control!

Is that why everything is on fire'?






You're welcome.









All yours.





I accept your surrender.



Anyone else?

Perhaps next time

we should start with the big one.

Keep moving. Come on!



Keep moving. Go ahead of me.

Don't you turn around!

Where do we go next?

Hogun, the peace

is nearly won across the Nine Realms.

You should stay here. Be with

your people, where your heart is.

Asgard can wait.

You have my thanks.

As you have mine.

Heimdall, when you're ready.

Is Vanaheim secure?

As are Nornheim and Ria.
