The powerful, but arrogant god Thor, is cast out of Asgard to live amongst humans in Midgard (Earth), where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.
Brad Pitt was rumored for the role of Thor; Channing Tatum and WWE wrestler Paul Levesque (a.k.a. Triple H, a.k.a. Hunter Hearst Helmsley) were considered for the part; Daniel Craig was the first choice; and Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgård, Liam Hemsworth, and Joel Kinnaman tested for the role, but finally Liam's brother Chris Hemsworth got the part.
Wait for it.
(at around 52 mins) When Jane and Thor are going to the crater, there are wired fences visible on the side of the road. When the camera cuts to an outside shot of the car, the fences are gone.
Part of the closing credits is shot through the Bifrost, with the camera flying through the cosmic realm of Yggdrasil, finally ending at Asgard. At the close, the film title appears with a small lightning strike within it.
