Next up on our Marvel movie viewing was Thor. The kids both really enjoyed this one. Chris Hemsworth plays Thor, an alien prince who is banished to Earth and must prove himself worthy to return. On Earth, he meets his love interest in scientist Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman. Tom Hiddleston is his evil brother Loki, who is plotting to take over the throne. Jeremy Renner also makes his first appearance as Hawkeye.
My five year-old son liked when Thor finally got his powers back and my seven year-old daughter agreed that was the best part. The supernatural aspects of the movie made it interesting and different from the other movies we have seen so far. Captain America is up next so it will be cool to see how the kids respond to the historical aspect.
