Little has been known about the plots of upcoming Paramount Pictures' movies, "Thor" and "The Avengers", but Comic Book Movie has come out with news of possible storyline of both films. According to the site, Ain't It Cool News (AICN) is the one who was able to get the details of the Marvel superhero films.
[SPOILER ALERT!] "Thor" is said to be started with 6 warriors, Thor, Loki, the Warriors 3, and Sif, in Asgard, where Odin is ruling. Loki is adopted, but he will later kill his father Odin and usurp his throne, and somehow Thor is cast out to Earth. Thor then lands in a desert, and is promptly run over by Natalie Portman as a PhD cosmology student and Stellan Skarsgard as her Norwegian professor, "who have gone out to study though telescopes a strange cloud in the cosmos."
When they realize that Thor is who he says he is, the professor, who has grown up with Norse mythology, can't quite deal with it and goes out on a drinking binge. The script ends with a 5-page battle, the scenes of which will be filmed first. Moreover, AICN claimed they have received information from a reliable source who said that Thor's alter ego Donald Blake is not going to appear in the big screen adaptation.
As for "The Avengers", Loki is claimed to be one of, if not the key bad guy in the film. The movie will be started with the villain entrapping [Bruce] Banner and hence gaining control of the Hulk for his evil deeds. Loki's action, then, initiates the existence of the Avengers.
"Thor" is an epic adventure that spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. The story centers on Chris Hemsworth's Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior, who is cast down to Earth due to his reckless actions, but he later learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of Asgard tries to invade Earth. The film is slated for a May 20, 2011 release date.
"The Avengers", in the meantime, will bring together the superhero team of Marvel Comics characters for the first time ever, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more, as they are forced to band together to battle the biggest foe they've ever faced. The movie is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on May 4, 2012.
