WEFOUNDThor: The Dark World Movie Storybook (Marvel Storybook (eBook))


Inciting Event: While reluctantly out on her first date post-Thor (she thinks), Jane Foster is alerted by her assistant Darcy that her equipment is showing anomalous readings. Although Odin’s narration in the prologue alerted us to the impending conflict with the Aether and the Dark Elves, this is the first time the story brushes the main conflict. So far so good, but it would have been better if it had also allowed the protagonist—Thor—to brush that conflict here as well.

First Plot Point: Jane steps through a “hole” between planets, ends up in the Aether’s millennial hiding place, and is “infected” by it when it inhabits her body and uses her as a host. Again, Jane is the primary actor here. But the conflict also touches Thor when Heimdall alerts him that he can no longer see Jane. In essence, we have both Jane and Thor leaving their respective Normal Words here, if only briefly: Jane leaves Earth for five hours, long enough to encounter the Aether, and Thor leaves Asgard long enough to find Jane and take her with him back to Asgard.

First Pinch Point: One of the Dark Elves, sent to infiltrate the prisons of Asgard, turns himself into an unkillable Kursed and engineers a jailbreak. In a book, this would undoubtedly be a scene all its own, but due to the much shorter running time of a movie, this scene effectively moves right into the Midpoint and is, indeed, basically just the fore bookend to the same scene.

Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World" continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
