                               THOR: RAGNAROK




                                 Written by

             Eric Pearson and Craig Kyle & Christopher L. Yost

A3   THE MARVEL LOGO. SMOLDERING, BEGINNING TO TURN ORANGE IN THE    A3
     HEAT AS WE TILT UP TO SEE-

     -FIRE.    NOTHING BUT FIRE.

2    INT. TIGHT SPACE - INDETERMINATE TIME                           2

     Dark and cramped. The soft red light of fire seeps through
     iron slats. Inside this cage is a man, bound by chains.

     It's THOR. His beard is long and his clothes are worn. That
     rough, grizzled look of a man who's spent years on the road.

     He awakens with a JOLT.   Looks around.

                           THOR
                 Now I know what you're thinking.
                 Oh no! Thor's in a cage. How did
                 this happen?
                     (then:)
                 Well, sometimes you have to get
                 captured just to get a straight
                 answer out of somebody. It's a long
                 story but basically I'm a bit of a
                 hero. See, I spent some time on
                 earth, fought some robots, saved
                 the planet a couple of times. Then
                 I went searching through the cosmos
                 for some magic, colorful Infinity
                 Stone things... didn't find any.
                 That's when I came across a path of
                 death and destruction which led me
                 all the way here into this cage...
                 where I met you.

     Reveal that he's talking to a weird alien skeleton in chains.

                           THOR (CONT'D)
                 How much longer do you think we'll
                 be here?

     NOISE.    Sounds of metal gears TURNING.

     Suddenly the bottom DROPS OUT! Thor PLUMMETS until - SHLINK!
     Chains CINCH and abruptly halt his descent. Thor dangles six
     feet off the ground. Pull back to reveal we are in-

3   INT. SURTUR'S LAIR - CONTINUOUS                                  3

    A cavernous space. The walls, floors, and ceilings are
    molten rock, which has creepy glimmers of fire within it.
    Stationed in the center is a volcanic rock throne, and
    sitting in that throne is a charred demonic skeleton.

                        SURTUR (O.S.)
              Thor, Son of Odin.

    Thor's chain turns to reveal-

    -SURTUR on his throne. Eighteen-feet-tall, flesh made of
    fire, and demonic spiked horns on his skull.

                         THOR
              Surtur. Son of a bitch...you're
              still alive! I thought my father
              killed you, like, half a million
              years ago.

                        SURTUR
              I cannot die. Not until I fulfill
              my destiny and lay waste to your
              home.

                        THOR
              You know, it's funny you should
              mention that because I've been
              having these terrible dreams of
              late. Asgard up in flames, falling
              to ruins, and you Surtur are at the
              center of all of them.

                        SURTUR
              Then you have seen Ragnarok, the
              fall of Asgard. The great prophecy--

                         THOR (O.S.)
              Hang on.   Hang on.

    Reveal that Thor's chain is turning VERY SLOWLY.

                        THOR (CONT'D)
              I'll be back around shortly. I
              really feel like we were connecting
              there.

    After a beat, Thor rotates around to face Surtur.

                        THOR (CONT'D)
              Okay, so, Ragnarok. Tell me about
              that. Walk me through it.
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16           3.


                    SURTUR
          My time has come. When my crown is
          reunited with the Eternal Flame, I
          shall be restored to my full might.
          I will tower over the mountains and
          bury my sword deep in Asgard's--

                    THOR
          Oh, hang on. Give it a second.

Once again, Thor is turning VERY SLOWLY.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          I swear I'm not even moving, it's
          just doing this on its own. I'm
          really sorry.
              (then:)
          Okay, let me get this straight.
          You're going to put your crown into
          the Eternal Flame, and then you'll
          suddenly grow as big as a house--

                    SURTUR
          A mountain!

                    THOR
          The Eternal Flame that Odin keeps
          locked away on Asgard?

Surtur grins, evil.

                    SURTUR
          Odin is not on Asgard. And your
          absence has left the throne
          defenseless.

That elicits a concerned look from Thor.

                    THOR
          Okay, so where is it? This crown?

                    SURTUR
          This is my Crown, the source of my
          power.

Surtur points at the V-shaped horns on his head..

                    THOR
          Oh, that's a crown? I thought it
          was a big eyebrow.

                    SURTUR
          It's a crown.
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   4.


                     THOR
           Anyway, it sounds like all I have
           to do to stop Ragnarok is rip that
           thing off your head.

Surtur stands up and approaches Thor, DRAGGING his sword.

                     SURTUR
           But Ragnarok has   already begun. You
           cannot stop it.    I am Asgard's
           doom, and so are   you. All will
           suffer, all will   burn.

Surtur steps forward and GRABS the chain above Thor's feet,
holding it so he and Thor are face to face.

                     THOR
           That's intense. To be honest,
           seeing you grow really big and set
           fire to a planet would be quite the
           spectacle. But it looks like I'm
           going to have to go with option B
           where I bust out of these chains,
           knock that tiara off your head, and
           stash it away in Asgard's vault.

                     SURTUR
           You cannot stop Ragnarok. Why fight
           it?

Behind his back, Thor opens his hand.    Sending out the SOS.

                     THOR
           Because that's what heroes do.

Nothing happens.   Thor appears annoyed at himself.

                     THOR (CONT'D)
           Wait, sorry. I didn't time that
           right.
               (pause)
           And, now!

BOOM!   Thor's hammer Mjolnir CRASHES through the wall!

Thor BREAKS FREE from his chains, GRABS Mjolnir, spins, and
flies a distance away. He FLINGS Mjolnir back at Surtur,
smashing the giant in the face. Mjolnir returns.

                     SURTUR
           You have made a grave mistake,
           Odinson.
                           BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   5.


    THE WALLS COME ALIVE! A seemingly infinite swarm of FIRE
    DEMONS rally to Surtur's aid.

                         THOR
               I make grave mistakes all the time.
               Everything seems to work out.

    In the shadows, a massive FIRE DRAGON ROARS.

    The fire demons SURGE FORWARD. Thor backs up, HAMMERING
    AWAY. He then leaps back, SPRINGBOARDS off the wall, and-

    -LANDS HARD, SLAMMING Mjolnir down. The resulting shockwave
    KNOCKS BACK THE LEGION OF FIRE DEMONS.

    The Fire Dragon STRAINS against a chain leash.

    Thor is now facing off with Surtur. Surtur thrusts his hands
    at Thor, generating a humongous PROJECTILE WALL OF FIRE!

    Thor SPINS Mjolnir so fast that it creates a kind of SHIELD.

    The God of Thunder and the Fire Giant engage in ferocious
    hand-to-hand combat. Each landing power shots, sending
    sparks of both fire and electricity into the air.

    Thor SLIPS behind Surtur and TAKES OUT his knees. Thor then
    LAUNCHES HIGH into the air and summons a HUGE LIGHTNING BOLT.
    Descending hard, he uses all his power to-

    -LOP SURTUR'S HEAD OFF OF HIS BODY! Surtur's body DEFLATES
    and COLLAPSES into a heap of charred bones.

    Thor straps the crowned skull to his back. He turns to find-

    -the army of Fire Demons regrouping as reinforcements flood
    in, filling the space to capacity. Recognizing the threat,
    Thor thrusts Mjolnir above his head.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               Heimdall. I know it's been a while,
               but I could use a fast exit!

    Nothing.   Thor just stands there as the Fire Demons advance.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               ...Heimdall?


4   INT. THE OBSERVATORY - SAME                                      4

    Heimdall is nowhere to be found. Instead, we meet SKURGE.
    He's bald, strong, mean looking, a little eager to be liked.
                          BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                    6.


    At the moment, Skurge is entertaining two ASGARDIAN WOMEN.

                         SKURGE
              Heimdall was an idiot. This job
              should have made him rich. Now,
              the job ain't easy, but it does
              have its benefits. The Bi-Frost
              gives me access to everything the
              Nine Realms have to offer. I mean
              it's all mine for the taking.
                  (beat)
              Behold...my stuff.

    Skurge has drawn their attention to a pile of weapons and
    treasures he has stashed off to the side.

    He hefts up two M-16 assault rifles, trying to play it cool.

                        SKURGE (CONT'D)
              I'm particularly fond of these. I
              pulled `em out of a place on
              Midgard called Texas. I even named
              them. Des and Troy. You see, when
              you put them together...they
              destroy.


5   INT. SURTUR'S LAIR - CONTINUOUS                                  5

    Having expected to have been Bi-Frosted out of there, Thor is
    OVERRUN BY THE GIANT WAVE OF FIRE DEMONS!

    The Fire Dragon BREAKS FREE of its chain.

    Realizing he's in trouble, Thor TAKES OFF, rocketing up to-


6   EXT. MUSPELHEIM - CONTINUOUS                                     6

    Thor CRASHES out of the ground and LANDS on a craggy surface.
    Disoriented and singed from the fire demon onslaught.

    Thor's cloak is on fire, and he frantically PATS OUT the
    flames. He picks up Mjolnir, holds it up once more. Nothing.

                        THOR
              Heimdall, come on.

    THE GROUND SHAKES! Like an earthquake. Thor backs up as the
    ground begins to give way all around him. And then-

    -THE FEARSOME FIRE DRAGON BURSTS OUT OF THE GROUND! The
    dragon opens its tremendous jaws for an ear-splitting roar...
                            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 7.


     ...but Thor STUFFS Mjolnir into its mouth and lets go.

     THUD! The hammer DROPS, pinning the beast down by its bottom
     jaw. It THRASHES and GROWLS, trying to break free.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               Stay.
                   (looks up to the sky:)
               I'm running short on--

     Thor notices that all around him the ground is CRUMBLING like
     a field of sinkholes giving way to more snarling Fire Demons!

                           THOR (CONT'D)
               -options.

     Thor calls for Mjolnir and TAKES OFF.   The dragon SCREECHES!

                           THOR (O.S.)
               Heimdall?

     Behind Skurge the Bi-Frost starts MOVING.   One of the women
     notices the Bi-Frost glowing.

                         ASGARDIAN WOMAN
               Skurge, is that important?

     Skurge turns and notices the Bi-Frost activity.

                         SKURGE
               You girls are in for a treat.

     Angle on Heimdall's sword, which has been sloppily cast aside
     in another pile of "stuff." Skurge hastily runs and grabs it.


10   EXT. MUSPELHEIM - CONTINUOUS                                    10

     Thor is FLYING at top speed, but that dragon is right on his
     heels! The fire demons LAUNCH flaming projectiles from below!

     Thor looks back, genuinely nervous. The dragon is OPENING
     its jaws to swallow Thor whole when-

     -Suddenly Bi-Frost OPENS! The portal surrounds Thor and
     engulfs the dragon's head! In an instant, they're gone.

11   INT. THE OBSERVATORY - MOMENTS LATER                           11

     Skurge has plunged Heimdall's sword into Bi-Frost.

     BOOM! Thor EXPLODES out of the portal along with the severed
     head of the dragon! SPLAT! Blood and guts RAIN DOWN on
     Skurge and the two women, DRENCHING them with purple gore.

     The dragon's head SLIDES slowly across the floor, coming to
     rest right in front of the women who are frozen in shock.

     The women SHRIEK and rush out of the Observatory. Thor
     meanwhile is clean and staggering back to his feet. He looks
     up to Skurge, who is wiping dragon guts off of himself.

                          SKURGE
               Girls!
                   (beat)
               Well well, look who decided to pop
               in. Thanks for scaring away my
               company and drenching my workplace
               in brains.

                         THOR
               Who are you?

                         SKURGE
               Don't you remember? I'm Skurge.
                   (Thor doesn't)
               We fought together on Vanaheim.

                          THOR
               Right.   Where's Heimdall?

                         SKURGE
               That traitor. No one knows, he's a
               fugitive of the throne.

                          THOR
               Traitor?

                         SKURGE
               Yeah, you see, Odin charged
               Heimdall with negligence of duty,
               but he disappeared before the
               trial. Hard to catch a guy who can
               see everything in the Universe.

     Thor starts to say something, but then gives up. Instead he
     starts towards the exit... but Skurge stands in his way.

                             THOR
                Sure.

                          SKURGE
                Hold on. I'm supposed to announce
                your arrival.

      Thor SPINS UP Mjolnir and takes off in a blur.   Skurge starts
      the loooong run down the Rainbow Bridge.

A13   EXT. THEATER ENTRANCE - DAY                                      A13

      THOR arrives with Surtur's skull.

      There's a small crowd making its way through a threshold over
      which stands a monumental statue of Loki, arms out-stretched
      in the `savior' pose.

      Confused, Thor turns to a theater patron.

                          THOR
                What the hell is that?


13    EXT. ASGARD - ROYAL TERRACE - PATIO - MOMENTS LATER              13

      LOKI falls into frame, GASPING FOR BREATH... although it's
      not Loki. This is ACTOR LOKI and we're watching a STAGE PLAY.

      In the background, a single musician plays the haunting score
      from THOR: THE DARK WORLD on a pan flute.

      Suddenly, ACTOR THOR leans into shot, holding Actor Loki.

                          ACTOR LOKI
                Oh, brother. This is it.    I take
                my leave.

                          ACTOR THOR
                You fool, you didn't listen!

                             ACTOR LOKI
                I'm sorry.

                             ACTOR THOR
                Lady Sif!     Get help!

      "Sif" awkwardly runs off. The "Warriors Three" watch sadly. A
      small choir JOINS IN as the music builds to a CRESCENDO.

                          ACTOR SIF
                Somebody help!
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                10.


In the middle of the audience we reveal ODIN, sitting upon a
chaise lounge, sipping wine and thoroughly enjoying the show.
Unseen, Thor arrives behind the audience and watches.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          Sorry for all I've done.

                    ACTOR THOR
          It's all right.   Hold on.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          I'm sorry I tried to rule Earth.

                    ACTOR THOR
          They'd be lucky to have you.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          I'm sorry about that thing with the
          Tesseract. I just couldn't help
          myself.

                    ACTOR THOR
          I know.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          I'm a trickster.

                    ACTOR THOR
          So mischievous.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          Sorry about that time I turned you
          into a frog.

                    ACTOR THOR
          It was a wonderful joke.

                    ODIN
              (to no-one in particular)
          Twas indeed hilarious.

                    ACTOR THOR
          You are the savior of Asgard.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          Tell my story.

                    ACTOR THOR
          I will.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          Build a statue for me.
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                11.


                    ACTOR THOR
          We will build a big statue for you.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          With my helmet on, with the big
          bendy horns.

                    ACTOR THOR
          I will tell Father what you did
          here today.

Odin mouths Actor Loki's final line along with him.

                    ACTOR LOKI
          I didn't do it for him.

Actor Loki then "dies".

                       ACTOR THOR
          Noooooo!!!

The brothers freeze in a TABLEAU as ACTOR ODIN steps forward.

                    ACTOR ODIN
          And so Loki died of his wounds,
          giving his life for ours. He
          fought back those disgusting dark
          elves. He brought peace to the
          realm.

He takes a 4-YEAR-OLD BOY, PAINTED BLUE, into his arms.

                    ACTOR ODIN (CONT'D)
          Loki, my boy...`Twas many moons ago
          I found you on a frost-bitten
          battlefield.

Thor watches, incredulous. He then notices that a woman next
to him is openly SOBBING at the play.

                    ACTOR ODIN (CONT'D)
          On that day, I did not yet see in
          you Asgard's savior. No. You were
          merely a little blue baby icicle...
          that melted this old fool's heart.

The crowd erupts in rapturous applause. The players bow. Odin
stands up, leading the crowd in this STANDING OVATION.

                      ODIN
          Bravo!    Bravo! Well done.   Bravo.

                       THOR
          Father.
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   12.


Odin sees Thor taking a knee.   Curses under his breath:

                    ODIN
          Oh, shit.
              (then, announcing)
          My son! Thor has returned!
          Greetings my boy.

Odin goes through a weird internal transformation. His
fluidity is replaced by a rigid and regal posture. He bats
away his maiden and turns to Thor, who stands up.

                     THOR
          It's an interesting play.    What's
          it called?

                    ODIN
          The Tragedy of Loki of Asgard. The
          people wanted to commemorate him.

                    THOR
          Indeed they should.
              (provoking)
          I like that statue. A lot better
          looking than he was when he was
          alive, though. A little less
          weasely. Less greasy maybe.

Odin sours, masking his agitation.    Thor holds up the skull.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          You know what this is?

                    ODIN (ADR)
          The skull of Surtur? That's a
          formidable weapon.

Thor approaches an E-Guard and hands it over.

                    THOR
          Do me a favor. Lock this in a
          vault so it doesn't turn into a
          giant monster and destroy the whole
          planet.

                    ODIN
          So it's back to Midgard for you, is
          it?

Thor starts YO-YOing Mjolnir, turns back to Odin.

                    THOR
          Nope. I've been having this
          reocurring dream lately.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          Every night I see Asgard fall into
          ruins...

                    ODIN
          That's just a silly dream... Signs
          of an overactive imagination.

                    THOR
          Possibly... but then I decide to go
          out there and investigate. And
          what do I find, but the Nine Realms
          completely in chaos. Enemies of
          Asgard assembling, plotting our
          demise, all while you, Odin, the
          protector of those Nine Realms, are
          sitting here in your bathrobe,
          eating grapes.

                    ODIN
          Well, it is best to respect our
          neighbors' freedom.

                     THOR
          Of course, the freedom to be
          massacred.

                    ODIN
          Yes, besides, I have been rather
          busy myself.

                    THOR
          Watching theatre.

                    ODIN
          Board meetings, and security
          council meetings...

                    THOR
          You really going to make me do it?

                     ODIN
          Do what?

Thor SPINS Mjolnir and then HURLS it off into the distance,
GRABS Odin by the back of the neck.

Odin's royal attendants GASP in shock. The Einherjar
bodyguards rush Thor, but he KICKS them away.

                    THOR
          You know that nothing will stop
          Mjolnir as it returns to my hand.

Mjolnir stops mid-air and starts ROCKETING BACK.
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                14.


                    THOR (CONT'D)
          Not even your face.

                    ODIN
          You've gone quite mad.     You'll be
          executed for this!

Mjolnir approaches at a terrifying speed as Odin struggles.

                    THOR
          Then I'll see you on the other
          side...brother.

The jig is up.   A shimmering illusion dissipates, revealing:

                    LOKI
          Alright, I yield!

Thor DROPS Loki to the ground and catches Mjolnir. Loki
looks to Thor, hands up defensively. Skurge arrives on the
scene, a little late to warn Loki.

                     SKURGE
          Behold!   Thor..Odinson.

                    LOKI
          You had one job!    Just the one.

                    THOR
          Where's Odin?

                    LOKI
          You just couldn't stay away, could
          you? Everything was fine without
          you. Asgard was prospering
              (gestures to the crowd)
          You've ruined everything. Ask
          them.

Those who aren't freaked out are becoming gradually angrier.

Thor advances on Loki, who backs up onto the chaise lounge.

                    THOR
          Where's father?    Did you kill him?

                    LOKI
          You had what you wanted, you had
          the independence you asked for!

Thor PRESSES Mjolnir onto Loki's chest.

17   EXT. SHADY ACRES NURSING HOME - MANHATTAN - DAY                17

     A NURSING HOME sign on a brick wall. Suddenly the wall
     crumbles out of shot, revealing a demolition site.

     Reveal Thor and Loki wearing street clothes. Thor carries an
     umbrella, Loki is dressed in a weird avant-garde suit.

                         LOKI
               I swear, I left him right here.

                         THOR
               Right here on the sidewalk? Or
               right there, where the building
               that's being demolished? Great
               planning.

                         LOKI
               How was I supposed to know? Can't
               see into the future. I'm not a
               witch.

                         THOR
               Then why do you dress like one?

                          LOKI
               Hey.

                         THOR
               I can't believe you're alive. I saw
               you die. I mourned you, I cried for
               you.

                         LOKI
               I'm honored.

               Hi. Would you mind taking a picture
               with us?

               Sure.
                   (to Loki:)
               Start figuring out where he is.

                         COLLEGE GIRL 1
               Oh, my god.

                         COLLEGE GIRL 2
               Sorry to hear that Jane dumped you.

                         THOR
               She didn't dump me, you know.       I
               dumped her. It was a mutual
               dumping.

     Thor notices something going on around Loki.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               What's this, what are you doing!?

     Loki looks down to see that the sidewalk has started to GLOW
     BENEATH HIM! A circle of ancient symbols.

                         LOKI
               This... isn't me.

     WHOOMPF! Loki DROPS out of sight, vanishing through solid
     concrete! Thor sees a CARD on the sidewalk where Loki was.

     Thor pokes the business card.

                         THOR
               Loki?

     He picks up the card.    It reads:

                         177A Bleecker Street

     Thor picks up the card and - WHOOSH!


18   EXT. SANCTUM SANTORUM - DAY                                    18

     Thor approaches 177A Bleecker Street.

     He knocks ONCE, TWICE, and then WHOOSH!

                    STRANGE (O.S.)
          Thor Odinson.

From a dark corner we glimpse a shape - DOCTOR STRANGE.
Levitating, he drifts towards Thor.

                    STRANGE (CONT'D)
          God of Thunder.

Thor holds up the ratty umbrella, ready to defend himself.

                    STRANGE (CONT'D)
          You can put down the umbrella.

Thor gives Strange a sideways look but then sets his umbrella
down. When he looks back up, the environment is furnished.

                    THOR
          So earth has wizards now?

                    STRANGE
          The preferred term is "Master of
          the Mystic Arts."

                    THOR
          Alright wizard, who are you?   Why
          should I care?

                    STRANGE
          My name is Doctor Stephen Strange
          and I have some questions for you.
          Take a seat.

Thor and Strange are now sitting in high-backed chairs.

                     STRANGE (CONT'D)
          Tea?

Thor now has a cup of tea in his hand.

                    THOR
          I don't drink tea.

                    STRANGE
          What do you drink?

                     THOR
          Not tea.

Thor now has a stein of beer in his hand. He drinks it
throughout the scene, but it always stays full.

          STRANGE
So I keep a watch list of
individuals and beings from other
realms that may be a threat to this
world. Your adopted brother Loki
is one of these beings.

          THOR
He's a worthy inclusion.

          STRANGE
Then why bring him here?

          THOR
We're looking for my father.

          STRANGE
So. If you were to tell you where
Odin was, all parties concerned
would promptly return to Asgard?

            THOR
Promptly.

           DR. STRANGE
Great.   Then I'll help you.

          THOR
If you knew where he was, why
didn't you call me?

           DR. STRANGE
I have to tell you, he was adamant
that he not be disturbed. Your
father said he had chosen to remain
in exile.
    (beat)
And you don't have a phone.

          THOR
No, I don't have a phone, but you
could have sent an electronic
letter. It's called an email.

          STRANGE
Yeah, do you have a computer?

           THOR
No. What for?
    (beat)
Anyway, my father is no longer in
exile. So if you could tell me
where he is, I can take him home.

                Gladly.   He's in Norway.

      Strange stands up and suddenly they are standing by a book-
      case. Strange takes down an ancient book, flips through it.

                          STRANGE
                I'm just seeing whether this
                incantation requires any Asgardian
                modifications.

      Thor reaches out to the bookcase to steady himself.

                           STRANGE (CONT'D)
                Nope.

      Suddenly they are both across the room at Strange's work
      station. Because Thor was touching the bookcase, he has
      magically brought it across the room as well.

                          STRANGE (CONT'D)
                Oh, we don't need that.

      Suddenly Thor is back across the room.   Books fall off the
      shelf and Thor's beer spills.

      He is queasy and unsteady from the teleporting.

                          THOR
                Will you stop doing that?

                          STRANGE
                I need just one strand of your
                hair.

                          THOR
                Let me explain something, my hair
                is not to be meddled wi-!

      Strange is behind Thor, he plucks a strand of hair.

      Strange extends the hair, infuses it with magic, does a few
      gestures that create a BRIGHT LIGHT and suddenly-


A20   INT. SANCTUM SANCTORUM - FRONT STAIRCASE - CONTINUOUS            A20

      Bottom of the stairs. Strange is standing. Thor is rolling
      down the stairs. A magic portal leading into a peaceful
      meadow has opened beside Strange.

                          THOR
                We could have just walked.
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                20.


                    DR. STRANGE
              (re: the portal)
          He's waiting for you.

                       THOR
          All right.

                    STRANGE
          Don't forget your umbrella.

                       THOR
          Yes.

Thor extends his arm and holds out his hand.    Crashing noises
are heard. Lots of crashing noises.

                       THOR (CONT'D)
          Sorry

Finally the umbrella flies into his hand.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          I suppose I'll need my brother
          back.

                    DR. STRANGE
          Yeah, right.

Suddenly we hear SCREAMING.

From above, LOKI drops out of a portal. He LANDS HARD on the
floor and then STAGGERS to his feet. On edge, confused.

                    LOKI
          ...I have been falling...for thirty
          minutes!

                    DR. STRANGE
              (to Thor:)
          You can handle him from here.

                    THOR
          Yeah of course.
              (they shake hands)
          Thank you very much for your help.

                       STRANGE
          Good luck.

                       LOKI
          Handle me?     Who are you?

     Loki DRAWS a dagger, ready to attack Strange.

                          LOKI
                ..you think you're some kind of
                sorcerer? Don't think for one
                minute, you second-rate...

                            DR. STRANGE
                Bye-bye.

     Strange GESTURES with both hands and-

     -WHOOSH!   PULLS the magic portal over them.

     Just like that, Thor and Loki are gone.

21   EXT. CLIFFS - DAY                                                  21

     Beautiful, undisturbed nature.       We hear the ocean nearby.

     LOKI lands on the ground, portal closes behind them.

                            THOR
                Father?

     A lone figure stands at the other side of the meadow at the
     cliff's edge, waves CRASHING below.

     It is ODIN. He's dressed plainly in humble human clothes.
     The boys approach him quickly.

                          ODIN
                Look at this place. It's beautiful.

                          THOR
                Father, it's us.

                           ODIN
                My sons.   I've been waiting for
                you.

     Loki is surprised to hear Odin call him his son.

                            THOR
                I know.    We've come to take you
                home.

                          ODIN
                Home, yes. Your mother, she calls
                me. Do you hear it?

     Thor fires a look at Loki, who holds up his hands in defense.
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   22.


                    THOR
          Loki, lift your magic.

Odin turns to Loki, who stiffens.    But Odin smiles.

                    ODIN
          Took me quite a while to break free
          from your spell. Frigga would have
          been proud.

Loki is moved by this gesture. He looks over to see Thor
staring at him, anger building.

Odin puts a hand on Thor's shoulder, calming him.

                     ODIN (CONT'D)
          Come and sit with me. I don't have
          much time.

Odin sits, out of breath, weak.    His sons sit beside him.

                    THOR
          I know that we failed you, but we
          can make this right.

                     ODIN
          I failed you.
              (beat)
          It is upon us...Ragnarok.

                    THOR
          No, I've stopped Ragnarok.    I put
          an end to Surtur.

                    ODIN
          No. It has already begun. She's
          coming. My life was all that held
          her back, but my time has come. I
          cannot keep her away any longer.

                    THOR
          Father, who are you talking about?

                    ODIN
          The Goddess of Death.     Hela.   My
          first born.
              (faces Thor)
          Your sister.

That hits Thor hard. Loki can't believe what he's hearing.

                     THOR
          ...what?
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  23.


                     ODIN
           Her violent appetites grew beyond
           my control. I couldn't stop her,
           so I imprisoned her. Locked her
           away. She draws her strength from
           Asgard...and once she gets there,
           her powers will be limitless.

                     THOR
           Whatever she is, we can stop her.
           We can face her together.

                     ODIN
               (takes Thor's hand)
           No we won't. I'm on a different
           path now. This you must face
           alone.

Odin looks into Thor's eyes, struggling to breathe.

                     ODIN (CONT'D)
           I love you my sons.

For the briefest of instances, father and sons share a quiet
moment together. Tears well in Thor's eyes.

                     ODIN (CONT'D)
           Look at that.

Ethereal sun-rays stream down upon the ocean.

                     ODIN (CONT'D)
           Remember this place. Home.

A warm glow washes over Thor's face and he turns to see that-

-ODIN IS DISSIPATING INTO STARDUST.   THE ALLFATHER HAS DIED.

A moment as the brothers separately mourn for Odin.

The sky above DARKENS and THE WIND PICKS UP.

Thor stands and turns toward Loki, his eyes burning with
rage. Loki takes a step back.

                      LOKI
           Brother.

Thor faces Loki.   Electricity CRACKLES at Thor's hands.

                     THOR
           This was your doing.

CRACK!   Behind them a black portal SPLITS OPEN!
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                    24.


Thor SLAMS DOWN his umbrella, transforming into his Asgardian
armor (with Mjolnir). Loki changes into his armor as well.

A piercing scream cuts the air as a figure is hurtled out of
the portal, crashing out of this dimensional rift is HELA.

Hela takes a second to consider her surroundings.   Then:

                     HELA
          So he's gone?
              (beat)
          That's a shame. I would've liked
          to have seen that.

A tense moment as they stare each other down.

                    THOR
          You must be Hela.   I'm Thor, son of
          Odin.

                    HELA
          Really, you don't look like him.

                    LOKI
          Perhaps we can reach an
          arrangement.

                    HELA
          You sound like him.

Loki shifts nervously.   Thor's grip tightens on Mjolnir.

                    HELA (CONT'D)
          Kneel.

                    LOKI
          Beg your pardon?

Hela MANIFESTS a pitch black blade.

                    HELA
          Kneel...before your Queen.

                    THOR
          I don't think so.

Thor winds up and HURLS Mjolnir at Hela...

- THUD - the mighty hammer comes to a cold stop, against
Hela's hand.

Thor is shocked. He stretches out his hands, trying to call
Mjolnir back to him.
                            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  25.


     The hammer trembles in Hela's hand, like a mini game of tug-o-
     war. But ultimately Hela keeps possession.

                          THOR (CONT'D)
                It's not possible.

                          HELA
                Darling, you have no idea what's
                possible.

     HELA SHATTERS THOR'S HAMMER.

     The blast of Mjolnir's destruction sends a wave of energy
     through Thor and Loki who brace themselves against the
     impact.

     Thor is stupefied. In shock. He looks up to see Hela is
     running her hands back over her head to create the terrifying
     battle headdress.

     Loki's reaction is more panic.   He stands and calls up:

                          LOKI
                Bring us back!

                          THOR
                No!!

     Hela CHARGES Thor and Loki as-

     -WHOOSH!   The Bi-Frost envelopes all of them.


22   INT. BI-FROST - CONTINUOUS                                       22

     Thor and Loki ZOOM UPWARDS, held inside this celestial beam
     warping them towards Asgard. Loki and Thor look down to
     see... Hela is in the Bi-Frost, behind them and CATCHING UP.

     Loki turns and throws TWO DAGGERS at her. They find their
     mark, stalling her for a second. But she PLOWS RIGHT THROUGH
     Loki, KNOCKING HIM OUT OF THE BI-FROST. Gone in an instant.

                          THOR
                Loki!

     Hela projects a jet black grappling hook and GRABS HOLD of
     Thor. Drawing him to her, preparing to finish him off. Thor
     pulls up his legs, and KICKS Hela with both feet. This
     effectively dislodges him from her grasp but also...

     ...KNOCKS THOR OUT OF THE BI-FROST! Now both he and Loki are
     gone. If they aren't dead, then God knows where they went.

     VOLSTAGG has a grip on Heimdall's sword, manning Bi-Frost's
     controls. Behind him FANDRAL is overseeing Skurge, who is
     mopping up the dragon guts.

     BOOM! Hela emerges with thunderous impact. Fandral and
     Volstagg draw their weapons, preparing to engage.

                          VOLSTAGG
               Who are you!? What have you done
               with Thor?

     Hela fires TWO BLACK DAGGERS, each one dropping its target to
     the ground. Hela then walks forward and-

                           HELA
               I'm Hela.

     -BRUTALLY KILLS FANDRAL AND VOLSTAGG!

     Hela sees Skurge. Approaches calmly, a vision of death.

     With Hela only a few feet from him, Skurge cowers.   Pause.

                         SKURGE
               I'm just a janitor.

     Skurge ever-so-slightly peers up at her.

                         HELA
               You look like a smart boy with good
               survival instincts. How would you
               like a job?

     Hela looks out upon Asgard as Skurge rises behind her.

     SUPER WIDE: A sky full of WORMHOLES. Thor, only a spec at
     this distance, SHOOTS out of one of these wormholes. He HITS
     the surface, causing a CLOUD of dust.

     Find Thor on his back surrounded by strange colorful space
     wreckage. Looking up, Thor sees a large metal object falling
     from a different wormhole! He rolls out of the way. THUD!
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                    27.


Thor runs up a dune to get away from the shower of debris.

Thor reaches the top of the dune and finds himself looking
down on A BEACH in a strange WASTELAND. Camera scans a filthy
dune littered with SPACE JUNK.

Out across the OCEAN he notices A NIGHTMARE WORMHOLE - a
giant open cylinder of whirling smoke and lightning storms.

A loud noise draws Thor's attention to a HUGE RECTANGULAR
"SCRAPPER" SHIP hauling a crashed SPACE VESSEL out of the
water. Beneath the ship are various SCRAPPERS, masked
humanoids. The ship is BLASTING WEIRD ALIEN MUSIC.

A Scrapper notices Thor, then signals to his crew.

                    LEAD SCRAPPER
          Are you a fighter or are you food?

                    THOR
          I'm just passing through.

                    LEAD SCRAPPER
          It is food. On your knees.

Thor reaches out to summon Mjolnir.    A reflex.   Nothing.

The LEAD SCRAPPER levels a MAGNO-RIFLE at Thor and WHAP! A
solid metal projectile KNOCKS Thor flat on his back. More
Scrappers attack, throwing nets and firing more projectiles.
Thor tries to swat them away but they keep coming. The rest
of the scrappers move in with iron bats and clubs.

WHOOSH! A second ship arrives, landing nearby. It's cool,
sleek, and dangerous, deserving of its name: WARSONG. It is
also BLASTING DIFFERENT WEIRD ALIEN MUSIC.

The FRONT of Warsong FLIPS OPEN and a GANGPLANK extends down
to the ground. The scrappers stop and stare as we TRACK IN to
a HERO REVEAL of SCRAPPER #142 (S142 for short) - a beautiful
and ruthless asskicker.

S142 lifts a half-empty bottle to her lips and CHUGS it. She
finishes the bottle and smashes it on the side of her ship.

                       SCRAPPER #142
          He's MINE.

She walks down the gangplank... before veering off course and
FALLING straight off into a pile of TRASH. She's PLASTERED.

The Scrappers shrug and start hauling Thor away.

                       SCRAPPER #142 (CONT'D)
          Wait!

S142 staggers to her feet, takes a deep breath. She holds on
to a piece of junk as support - some dead beast. Thor
continues to struggle with his captors, tangled in nets.

                    SCRAPPER #142 (CONT'D)
          Wait! He's mine. So if you want
          him, you go through me.

The Scrappers start brandishing their weapons.

                    SCRAPPER
          But we've already got him.

S142 CLANGS her metal gauntlets together which activate.

                    SCRAPPER #142
          Alright then I guess I go through
          you.

                       LEAD SCRAPPER
          More food.

She holds out her fists as if she's operating machinery...

...Warsong WHIRS to life. S142 clenches her fists and we hear
a horrible SCREECHING NOISE as Warsong OPENS FIRE.

She sweeps her arms out in an arc, the spray of gunfire
lasting THREE SECONDS. She bangs her fists again, sending the
ship into IDLE MODE. The Scrappers are now little more than
tiny pieces of litter covering the beach.

Thor is fixated on this beautiful murderer approaching. One
final HUGE Scrapper comes at her with a bat. S142 casually
GRABS this Scrapper and HURLS him up into the air behind her.

                       THOR
          Thank you.

From her belt S142 FLICKS a small glowing disc which LODGES
into Thor's NECK. Far in the background, the Scrapper she
threw finally HITS the ground with a loud THUD.

She holds up a fob device and presses the button - the disc
blinks and Thor is filled with the pain of a thousand
screaming squirrels. He hits the ground, stunned.

S142 DRAGS Thor towards her ship.

     Thor's face SMUSHED up against glass.   His eyes are open.

     Thor's POV - THE CAPITAL - an eclectic city composed of
     salvaged items from all over the universe.

     Thor is lying in a sort of small GLASS HOLDING CELL beneath
     Warsong's COCKPIT. He looks up to see S142 piloting the ship.

     Thor's eyes lock in on her belt, specifically the fob device
     she used to activate the Obedience Disk/debilitate him.

                         SCRAPPER #142
               This is Scrapper 142. I need
               clearance and an audience with the
               boss. I've got something special.

                          THOR
               Hey!   Where are you taking me?

     S142 ignores him, takes a swig from the bottle, and then
     nonchalantly UNCLIPS the fob from her belt.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               Answer me! Hey! I am Thor, son of
               Odin. I need to get back to
               Asgard.

                         SCRAPPER #142
               Many apologies, your majesty.

     S142 ZAPS him and guides her ship towards a COLOSSAL TOWER.

     face fully visible. We do not see who she is talking to.

                         HELA
               It's come to my attention that you
               don't know who I am.

     REVEAL THE ARMIES OF ASGARD FACING DOWN HELA.

     Standing in front is HOGUN, sword and shield out.

                         HELA (CONT'D)
               I am Hela, Odin's first born,
               Commander of the legions of Asgard,
               the rightful heir to the throne,
               and the Goddess of Death.

                         HELA (CONT'D)
               My father is dead. As are the
               princes. You're welcome.
                   (then:)
               We were once the seat of absolute
               power in the Cosmos. Our supremacy
               was unchallenged, yet Odin stopped
               at Nine Realms. Our destiny is to
               rule over all others. And I am
               here to restore that power. Kneel
               before me...and rise into the ranks
               of my great conquest.

     THE E-GUARDS GET INTO ATTACK FORMATION.

                         HOGUN
               Whoever you are... whatever you've
               done, surrender now! Or we will
               show you know mercy.

                         HELA
               Whoever I am? Did you listen to a
               word I said?

                         HOGUN
               This is your last warning!

                         HELA
               I thought you'd be happy to see me.

     Hela forms her headdress.

                         HELA (CONT'D)
               Fine.

     The Asgardian archers LOOSE DOZENS OF ARROWS, but-

     -Hela advances confidently, DESTROYS the SHIPS and SOARS INTO
     THE EINHERJAR! In a symphony of spectacular terror, Hela
     proceeds to DECIMATE the entire regiment. A tornado of
     carnage, a legendary massacre.


27   EXT. BELOW THE RAINBOW BRIDGE - SAME                            27

     While Hela slaughters up above, we tilt up from a boat,
     moored at the base of the Observatory, to see the mysterious
     figure from earlier is now SCALING the rocks towards the top.


28   INT. THE OBSERVATORY - CONTINUOUS                               28

     Now silhouetted in the entrance way, the figure scans the
     Observatory. His gaze falls on-
                            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   31.

29    EXT. OUTSKIRTS OF ASGARD - CONTINUOUS                            29

      It's eerily quiet. CLOSE on Hela scanning the battlefield.
      100+ slain Einherjar at her feet.

      ANGLE on Skurge as he steps forward - awe, admiration, fear.

                          HELA
                Oh, I've missed this. Still, it's
                a shame. Good soldiers dying for
                nothing...all because they couldn't
                see the future. Sad.
                    (then she sees:)
                Oh! Look, still alive.

      Reveal Hogun, severely injured but staggering to his feet,
      resilient.

                          HELA (CONT'D)
                Change of heart?

      Hogun draws a dagger as a last ditch attack.

                          HOGUN
                Go back to whatever cave you crept
                out of you evil demoness!

      Hela IMPALES Hogun on a spike.   She turns to Skurge.

                          HELA
                Let's go see my palace.

      Skurge stares at Hogun before following Hela towards the
      palace.

A32   INT. DARK TUNNEL - DAY                                           A32

      THOR, strapped to the chair, suddenly finds himself slowly
      moving forward. After a beat-

      -the walls LIGHT UP and a SOOTHING VOICE speaks to him.

                          SOOTHING VOICE (V.O.)
                Fear not, for you are found. You
                are home, and there is no going
                back. No one leaves this place.

      Thor STRUGGLES against his restraints.

                     SOOTHING VOICE (V.O.)
          But what is this place? The answer
          in Sakaar.

The tunnel walls show images of Sakaar's place in the Cosmos.

                    SOOTHING VOICE (V.O.)
          Surrounded by cosmic gateways,
          Sakaar lives on the edge of the
          known and unknown.

Images of the wormholes that cover Sakaar's atmosphere.

                    SOOTHING VOICE (V.O.)
          It is the collection point for all
          lost and unloved things. Like you.
          But here on Sakaar, you are
          significant. You are valuable.
          Here, you are loved.

                    THOR
          What...the hell?

                    SOOTHING VOICE (V.O.)
          And no one loves you more than the
          Grandmaster.

Images of the Grandmaster, in silhouette, arriving on Sakaar.

                    SOOTHING VOICE (V.O.)
          He is the original. The first
          lost, and the first found. The
          creator of Sakaar and the father of
          the Contest of Champions.

Images of the arena where aliens battle to the death.

                    SOOTHING VOICE (V.O.)
          Where once you were nothing, now
          you are something. You are the
          property of the Grandmaster.
              (then:)
          Congratulations! You will meet the
          Grandmaster in five seconds.

Images around the tunnel begin speeding up. Chaos, violence,
and confusion mixed in with Grandmaster's face.

Thor, already bewildered, looks on the verge of panic.

                    SOOTHING VOICE (V.O.)
          Prepare yourself. Prepare
          yourself. You are now meeting the
          Grandmaster.

     Thor SCREAMS!


32   INT. GRANDMASTER'S CHAMBERS - CONTINUOUS                        32

     Suddenly Thor is somewhere else, surrounded weirdos and
     insanely dressed palace guards.

     His scream dies down self-consciously.

     A musical beat PLAYS in the background.

     THE GRANDMASTER, a tall mysterious man in golden robes. He is
     looking right at us. He doesn't know what to make of us. He's
     curious, thrilled, revolted, and titillated.

     Pulling back we see TOPAZ, his trusty guard, at his side. Two
     GOLDEN LADIES loiter off to the side. Other strange guests
     can be seen in the background. Grandmaster just stares.

     S142 stands beside Grandmaster.    Finally:

                         GRANDMASTER
               He's wonderful.
                   (then:)
               It is a he?

     Reveal S142 standing beside Thor.

                            SCRAPPER #142
               It's a he.

                         GRANDMASTER
               Yeah. I love when you come to visit
               142, you bring me the best stuff.
                   (to Topaz:)
               Whenever we get to talking, Topaz,
               about Scrapper 142...what do I
               always say? "She is the..." and it
               starts with a B.

                            TOPAZ
               Trash.

                         GRANDMASTER
               No, not trash. Were you waiting
               just to call her that? It doesn't
               start with a "B."

                            TOPAZ
               Booze hag.
                         BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  34.


                    GRANDMASTER
          I'm so sorry. No, "best." I was
          thinking about "best."
              (to S142:)
          Because I always say you're the
          best. She brought me my precious
          beloved Champion, you know.

                    TOPAZ
          You say that every time she's here.

                    GRANDMASTER
          What have you brought today?    Tell
          me.

                    SCRAPPER #142
          A contender.

                     THOR
          A what?

                    GRANDMASTER
          I need to go closer. I want a
          closer look at this. Can you take
          us closer? Thank you.

Grandmaster advances on Thor.    Examining him closely and
strangely. Then:

                    GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          Pay this lady.

                    THOR
          Just wait a damn minute.    I'm not
          for sale.

Using all his might, Thor breaks out of his shackles, but-

-S142 ZAPS him again.    Paralyzed by superheated veins.

                     GRANDMASTER
          Man.   He is a fighter.

                    SCRAPPER #142
          I'd take 10 million.

                    TOPAZ
          Tell her she's dreaming.

                    GRANDMASTER
          For heaven's sake, transfer the
          units.
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   35.


Topaz transfers S142 the units. Without sympathy or ceremony,
S142 exits.

                    THOR
          You'll pay for this!

                    SCRAPPER #142
          No, I got paid for this.

Thor claws at the obedience disk, trying to RIP IT OUT.

He gets some separation from his skin, but the disk is
causing him even more pain. Thor eventually has to let go.
Grandmaster holds up HIS OWN fob device and uses it like a
wand to guide Thor's HOVER CHAIR, which follows Grandmaster
around as he speaks.

                    GRANDMASTER
          Here's what I wanna know.    Who are
          you?

                    THOR
          I am the God of THUNDER!!!

Thor THRUSTS his arms into the air but only a tiny bit of
static electricity POPS within Thor's hands.

                    GRANDMASTER
          Wow. I didn't hear any thunder,
          but out of your fingers, was that
          like...sparkles?

                    TOPAZ
          We located your cousin.

                     GRANDMASTER
          Oh good!
              (to Thor:)
          Yeah, come on. I think you're gonna
          like this.

Grandmaster moves Thor's chair to another section where-

-COUSIN CARLO is waiting. He's strapped to a chair like
Thor, and he is terrified.

                    GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          There he is. Hey, cuz. We almost
          couldn't find you. What, have you
          been hiding?

Cousin Carlo looks at Thor, cowering in fear.
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   36.


                       THOR
          Hi.

Carlo only further weeps.

                       GRANDMASTER
          So...

                     COUSIN CARLO
          Please.   I'm sorry.

                    GRANDMASTER
          Carlo... I pardon you.

                       COUSIN CARLO
          Thank you.     Thank you.

                    GRANDMASTER
          You're officially pardoned...from
          life.

Grandmaster casually takes Topaz's Sakaarian Guard staff and
JABS it into his cousin's mid-section-

-CAUSING ALL OF HIS FLESH TO MELT OFF HIS SKELETON!

Carlo SHRIEKS IN PAIN before his vocal cords melt.    Thor
looks on, in shock.

                    THOR
          Oh, my god!

Liquid Carlo spreads towards Grandmaster.

                    GRANDMASTER
          I'm stepping in it. I'm stepping
          in it. Look out!

                    THOR
              (repulsed)
          Oh, the smell.

                    GRANDMASTER
          What does it smell like?

                    TOPAZ
          Burnt toast.

                    GRANDMASTER
          What happened to my manners? I
          haven't properly introduced myself.
          Come on. Follow me.

Grandmaster gives Topaz back her staff.

Grandmaster and Thor arrive at a space where A GROUP OF
MUSICIANS PLAY STRANGE INSTRUMENTS (the source of the music
thus far). Grandmaster joins them, still speaking to Thor.

Grandmaster begins PLAYING a strange piano-like contraption,
riffing a melody over the existing music.

                    GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          My name is Grandmaster. I preside
          over a little harlequinade called
          the Contest of Champions. People
          come from far and wide to
          unwillingly participate in it. And
          you, my friend, might just be part
          of the new cast. What do you say
          to that?

                    THOR
          We're not friends, and I don't give
          a shit about your games! I'm going
          back to Asgard!

                    GRANDMASTER
              (amused)
          Ass-gard?
              (then:)
          One, two, three, four.

Grandmaster really gets into his PLAYING. Grandmaster's
guards and VIP guests start MOVING TO THE MUSIC.

Thor takes a moment to look around at this bizarre spectacle
unfolding around him. In doing so, he zeroes in on one
particular group of VIPS, specifically...

...LOKI! He's lounging and dressed in Sakaarian garb.

                    LOKI
          There was a wormhole in space and
          time beneath me. At that moment, I
          let go.

                    THOR
          Loki!? Loki! Over here!

Loki notices Thor. Blanches a little. Sidles closer so as
to speak to Thor without looking like he's speaking to Thor.

                    LOKI
          Excuse me one second.

                    THOR
          Loki!
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16     38.


Loki hustles over to Thor, SHUSHING him.

                     LOKI
          What?   You're alive?

                    THOR
          Yes, of course I'm alive.

                    LOKI
          What are you doing here?

                    THOR
          What do you mean, what am I doing?
          I'm stuck in this stupid chair.
          Where's your chair?

                    LOKI
          I didn't get a chair.

                    THOR
          Get me out of this one.

                       LOKI
          I can't.

                       THOR
          What?

                    LOKI
          I've made friends with this man.
          He's called the Grandmaster.

                    THOR
          Oh, he's crazy!

                    LOKI
          I've gained his favor.. The Bi-
          Frost brought me out here weeks
          ago.

                       THOR
          Weeks ago?     I just got here.

Suddenly Grandmaster is right next to them.

                    GRANDMASTER
          What are you whispering about?

Both Thor and Loki react, startled.

                    GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          Time works real different around
          these parts.

          Sakaar...

Grandmaster beholds himself.   Then turns to Loki.   A truly
uncomfortable silence.

                    GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          In any case, you know this... You
          call yourself Lord of Thunder?

          I've never met this man in my life.

          He's my brother.

Loki shrugs, gives the universal gesture for "so-so."

          You take this thing out of my neck
          and I'll show you.

                    GRANDMASTER
          Now listen to that. He's
          threatening me. Hey, Sparkles,
          here's the deal. If you wanna get
          back to Ass-place, Assberg...

          win.

                    THOR
          Fine. Then point me in the
          direction of whoever's ass I have
          to kick.

                    GRANDMASTER
          That's what I call, contender!
          Direction would be this way, Lord.

     Guards arrive.    They haul Thor up and escort him out.

34   INT. THE ARENA - GLADIATOR CELLS - NIGHT                        34

     Thor is shoved into a spacious cell where other alien
     prisoners are lurking in the back.

     The thick cell door SLAMS SHUT behind Thor. Thor gets up and
     immediately begins THROWING his shoulder into the door. The
     door doesn't budge, not even a little.

     Behind him, KORG, a hulking Kronan rock alien, speaks up.

                         KORG
               Hey! Take it easy man!
                   (Thor looks back)
               Over here. The pile of rocks
               waving at you. Yeah I'm actually a
               thing, I'm a being. Allow me to
               introduce myself, my name is Korg.
               I'm kind of like the leader in
               here. I'm made of rocks, as you
               can see, but don't let that
               intimidate you. You don't need to
               be afraid unless you're made of
               scissors.
                   (GIGGLES to himself)
               Just a little rock-paper-scissor
               joke for you. This is my very good
               friend over here, Miek. He's an
               insect and has knives for hands.

     MIEK, a slug alien inside a robot exoskeleton, says hello by
     doing some karate moves.

                         THOR
               You're a Kronan, aren't you?

                            KORG
               That I am.

                         THOR
               How'd you end up in here?

                         KORG
               Well, I tried to start a revolution
               but didn't print enough pamphlets,
               so hardly anyone turned up.

              (secretive)
          But I'm actually organizing another
          revolution. I don't know if you'd
          be interested in something like
          that. Do you reckon you'd be
          interested?

Thor tries to run ahead down the circle and loops back around
behind Korg.

                    THOR
          How did you...

                    KORG
          Yeah, no. This whole thing is a
          circle. But not a real circle,
          more like a freaky circle.

                    THOR
          This doesn't make any sense.

                    KORG
          No, nothing makes sense here. The
          only thing that does make sense, is
          that nothing makes sense.

                    THOR
          Has anyone here fought the
          Grandmaster's Champion?

          Oh, right, Doug's dead. That's
          right. Everyone who fights the

          What about you? You're made of

          Perishable rocks.
              (a pebble FALLS OFF)
          There you go. Another one gone.
          Yeah, no, I just do the smaller
          fights, warm up the crowd and
          whatnot. Wait. You're not gonna
          face him, are you?

                  That's exactly what Doug used to
                  say. See you later, new Doug.

      Korg walks away and approaches Miek.

      The streets of Asgard are cold and silent, save for the
      occasional distant sounds and screams of a city under siege.

      Moving down the throne room corridor we see-

      -SEVERAL DEAD EINHERJAR GUARDS.

      One guy is still alive, desperately trying to crawl away.

      SHLNK!    A black blade finishes him off.

      Reveal HELA and SKURGE looking down at the carnage.

      Hela directs her attention to FRESCOS ON THE CEILING. Like
      the Sistine Chapel, except these depict Asgard's shining
      influence on the Nine Realms. Bountiful harvests, shepherds
      with full flocks, common folk throwing parades for Asgard's
      army, etc.

                            HELA
                  Does no one remember me?
                      (awaiting an answer)
                  Has no one been taught our history?
                  Look at these lies. Goblets and
                  garden parties? Peace treaties?

      Hela leads them towards the throne.

                            HELA (CONT'D)
                  Odin... proud to have it... ashamed
                  of how he got it.

      Hela FIRES SPIKES into the ceiling, RIPPING DOWN plaster.

      Beneath the surface are older Frescos.      These ones are far
      more dark and sinister.

      Soldiers in battle. Blood. A giant war wolf.     Young Odin
      and young Hela. Slaves building the palace.

      Skurge is at least somewhat disturbed by this.

                           HELA (CONT'D)
                We were unstoppable. I was his
                weapon in the conquest that built
                Asgard's empire. One by one, the
                realms became ours.

      Hela turns from the murals to address Skurge.

                          HELA (CONT'D)
                But then, simply because my
                ambition outgrew his...he banished
                me, caged me, locked me away like
                an animal. Before that, Asgard's
                warriors were honored, their bodies
                buried as heroes beneath this very
                place.

      Hela beckons Skurge to follow her.


B36   INT. ODIN'S VAULT - CONTINUOUS                                  B36

      Hela enters the vault and descends the stairs towards the
      magical items.

                          SKURGE
                Odin's treasures.

      SKURGE follows her. Hela walks towards the Infinity Gauntlet.

                             HELA
                Fake.

      Hela KNOCKS the gauntlet off its pedestal.

                Most of the stuff in here is fake.

                But this... The Eternal Flame.

      THE ETERNAL FLAME flickers in its chalice.

      Hela DIGS HER HAND INTO THE ETERNAL FLAME. She pulls her
      hand out now cupping GREEN FIRE, like a torch.

      Hela approaches a large circular RUNE ETCHING on the floor.

      Hela manifests a huge CLAW HAMMER. She SMASHES THROUGH THE
      RUNES ON THE FLOOR, creating a gaping chasm.

      She looks at Skurge.

                Want to see what true power looks

C36   INT. HIDDEN ASGARDIAN CATACOMBS - DAY                            C36

      Hela LANDS like a bad ass.

      Dust settles. The light of Hela's hand torch reveals a stone
      crypt. An ornate burial place for the heroes of Old Asgard.

      We can see countless rotted skeletons in badass ancient
      Asgardian armor. Hela's regiment.

      Among them, A MASSIVE WOLF'S SKELETON. TERRIFYING AND
      MONSTROUS, COLOSSAL CHAINS AROUND THE BONES OF ITS PAWS.
      FENRIS.

      Hela approaches Fenris' skeleton.

                Fenris. My darling, what have they

                  It hurts, doesn't it? Being lied
                  to. Being told you're one thing and
                  then learning it's all a fiction.

       Thor picks up some stones that have fallen from Korg's leg
       and casually starts throwing them through Loki's illusion.

          me time to win his trust. He's a

Thor throws another stone through Loki.    Disinterested.

                    LOKI (CONT'D)
          What I'm telling you is, you could
          join me at the Grandmaster's side.
          Perhaps, in time, an accident
          befalls the Grandmaster, and
          then...

Loki gestures: "we take over."

Thor throws another stone through Loki.    Bored.

                    LOKI (CONT'D)
          You're not seriously thinking of
          going back, are you? Our sister
          destroyed your hammer like a piece
          of glass. She's stronger than both
          of us. She's stronger than you.
          You don't stand a chance. Do you
          understand what I'm saying to you?

Thor just scowls.

                    LOKI (CONT'D)
          Fine. I guess I'll just have to go
          it alone. Like I've always done.
              (Thor smirks)
          Would you say something?

Now out of stones, Thor looks around the floor for more.

                    LOKI (CONT'D)
          Say something!

Thor finally looks right at Loki, speaks fast and curt:

                    THOR
          What would you like me to say? You
          faked your own death, you stole the

          stranded him on Earth...

               you want me to go further back than
               the past two days?

     Loki's eyes burn.   Thor stares coldly at him.   Loki tries to
     compose himself.

                         LOKI
               You know, I haven't seen this
               Beloved Champion he talks of, but
               I've heard he's astonishingly

               against you tomorrow. Don't let me

     Loki SHIMMERS, and his illusion vanishes.   Korg runs in to
     try to kick him.

               you're fighting off three vampires
               that were huddled together.

                         THOR
               I really wish I had my hammer.

                          KORG
               Hammer?
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                48.


                    THOR
          Quite unique. It was made from
          this special metal from the heart
          of a dying star. And when I spun
          it really, really fast it gave me
          the ability to fly.

                    KORG
          You rode a hammer?

                    THOR
          No, I didn't ride the hammer.

                    KORG
          The hammer rode you on your back?

                    THOR
          No. I used to spin it really fast,
          and it would pull me off the...

                       KORG
          Oh my God.     The hammer pulled you
          off?

                    THOR
          The ground. It would pull me off
          the ground, up into the air, and I
          would fly. Every time I threw it,
          it would always come back to me.

                     KORG
          Sounds like you had a pretty
          special and intimate relationship
          wiht this hammer and that losing it
          was almost comparable to losing a
          loved one.

                    THOR
          That's a nice way of putting it.

Thor spots S142 dealing at the bar.    He's once again eyeing
the fob device clipped to her belt.    Scowls.

                    SCRAPPER #142
          I said they're mine.

                    THOR
          See her, the one that put me in
          here.

                    KORG
          Yeah, Scrapper 142. She's strong.
          And she drinks a lot.

                    KORG (CONT'D)
          Gotta watch out for those
          Asgardians, man. They are hard to
          perish.

                        THOR
          Asgardian?

Thor breaks away from the line and runs to S142.

                        THOR (CONT'D)
          Hey!   Hey!

S142 holds up the fob.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          Do not zap me with that thing. I
          just wanna talk. Asgard is in
          danger.

Thor then notices a series of PATTERNED SCARS, or BRANDS, on
her forearms. It's a moment of recognition and disbelief.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          My God, you're a Valkyrie. I used
          to wanna be a Valkyrie when I was
          younger...until I found out that
          you were all women. There's
          nothing wrong with women, of
          course. I love women. Sometimes a
          little too much. Not in a creepy
          way, just more of a respectful
          appreciation. I think it's great
          that there is an elite force of
          women warriors. It's about time.

                    SCRAPPER #142
          Are you done?

                    WARDEN (O.S.)
          Lord of Thunder, you're up.

                    THOR
          Please, help me.     I need your help.

                        SCRAPPER #142
          Bye.

                    THOR
          Fine, then you must be a traitor or
          a coward because the Valkyrie are
          sworn to protect the throne.

S142 finally turns her attention to Thor, intense.
                            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 50.


                          SCRAPPER #142
                Listen closely, your majesty. This
                is Sakaar, not Asgard. And I'm a
                scrapper, not a Valkyrie.

      Guards swarm Thor, dragging him back

                          WARDEN (O.S.)
                Bring him in for processing!

                          VALKYRIE
                And no one escapes this place. So
                you're gonna die anyway.

      Despite her denial, Thor has clearly hit a nerve. And from
      now on we will refer to Scrapper #142 as VALKYRIE.

      Valkyrie takes her booze and walks away. Thor is dragged
      away, passing Korg and the other prisoners.


40A   INT. PROCESSING ROOM - DAY                                        40A

      Thor is strapped to a chair. Reveal a weird alien BARBER
      (Stan Lee cameo) holding up some rusty shears.

                          STAN LEE
                Now, don't you move. My hands
                ain't as steady as they used to be.

                          THOR
                By Odin's beard, you shall not cut
                my hair... lest you feel the wrath
                of the might Thor.

      Barber activates a menacing CUTTING TOOL.   Thor freaks out.

                          THOR (CONT'D)
                Please. Please, kind sir, do not
                cut my hair! No!


40B   INT. THE ARENA - NIGHT                                            40B

      Hundreds of thousands of spectators packed into the stadium
      seats. Dozens of starships are parked above the arena.

      Find THE GRANDMASTER'S LUXURY SUITE, a VIP box attached to
      the fighting area. The Golden Ladies are in attendance.

      Loki lounges in the suite, taking wagers on the fight card.

      Grandmaster walks out into the center of the arena.   Suddenly-
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   51.


-THE GRANDMASTER GROWS TO 60-FEET TALL! This enlarged
projection of Grandmaster addresses the audience.

                    GRANDMASTER
          Wow! Look at all of you. What a
          show, WHAT-A-NIGHT! Who's having
          fun? Please, I'm your host. Big
          round of applause for all of our
          undercard competitors... who died
          so gruesomely. Good sports. What a
          show! What a night! This is what
          you've come for and so have I.
              (applause)
          And now, without further ado...
          it's main event time!!
              (INSANE APPLAUSE)
          Making his first appearance, though
          he looks quite promising, got a
          couple of tricks up his sleeve.
          I'll say no more, see what you
          think. Ladies and gentlemen...
              (LAUGHTER from the crowd)
          I give to you...Lord of Thunder!

Enter Thor. Gladiator Thor. Shaved head, trimmed beard,
minimalist armor, covered in weapons. Two swords on his
back, giant mace in one hand, spiked shield in the other.

                    GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          Watch out for his fingers. They
          make sparks.

Thor looks up at the throngs of SCREAMING FANS. And then...

...puts on his helmet. A badass gladiator variation of his
classic winged helm. Thor is ready to rumble.

ABOVE: Find Valkyrie in her Warsong ship, parked amongst the
other tailgaters. She POPS open a bottle of booze. Drinks.

                    GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          Okay, this is it. Let's get ready
          to welcome this guy. Here he comes.
          He is a creature. What can we say
          about him? Well, he's unique.
          There's none like him. I feel a
          special connection with him.

Suddenly the floor beneath Thor's feet LOWERS.   A slow,
tension-building GRIND as he sees-

-A DOOR across the arena.   Bigger and bigger.
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 52.


The entire crowd is on its feet. Palpable anticipation.    The
spotlights change to bright stadium lights.

                     GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
           He's undefeated. HE'S THE
           REIGNING...HE'S THE DEFENDING...
           Ladies and gentlemen... I give
           you...

KA-BOOM!   EXPLODING through a door is the Champion...

...THE INCREDIBLE HULK! He wears an armored shoulder guard
and a Spartan helmet. He carries a warhammer in one hand and
a battleaxe in the other. Hulk POUNDS his chest and ROARS,
further energizing an already frenzied crowd.

Meanwhile, the sight of Hulk makes Thor's arms drop to his
sides along with his jaw dropping to the ground. And then-

-Thor LAUGHS his ass off. Like, "that's my buddy over there!"

                     THOR
           Yes!

IN THE VIP BOX: Loki goes ghost white. Traumatic memories of
being Hulk-smashed flood his brain. Gone is all his joy.

                     LOKI
           I have to get off this planet.

Loki tries to exit, but the Grandmaster stops him.

                     GRANDMASTER
           Hey, hey, hey! Where are you going?

Grandmaster plops Loki down in the front row, right against
the glass. Loki casually tries to hide his face in his hand.

IN THE ARENA:

                     THOR
           Hey! We know each other. He's a
           friend from work.
               (to Hulk:)
           Where have you been? Everybody
           thought you were dead. So much has
           happened since I last saw you. I
           lost my hammer. Like, yesterday,
           so that's still pretty fresh.
               (then:)
           Loki! Loki's alive. Can you
           believe it? He's up there.
               (waves to Loki:)
           Loki! Look who it is!
                         BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16              53.


Loki is petrified.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          Banner, I never thought I would say
          this, but I'm happy to see you.

IN THE ARENA: Hulk is still eyeballing Thor while the
capacity crowd CHANTS insanely for "HULK! HULK! HULK!"

                      THOR (CONT'D)
          Banner.    Hey, Banner!

Hulk's face grimaces and contorts, suppressing puny Banner.

                       HULK
          NO BANNER!     ONLY HULK!

Hulk CHARGES at Thor.    Insanely fast.

                    THOR
          What are you doing?    It's me.

Thor DODGES the first few attacks, but then Hulk SHATTERS his
shield and sends Thor FLYING.

Thor draws a sword and STABS it into the ground to slow his
momentum. Draws the other sword and faces off against Hulk.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          Banner, we're friends. This is
          crazy. I don't want to hurt you!

They engage again.   Hulk KICKS Thor, sending him SLAMMING
into the wall.

                    GRANDMASTER
          Here we go.

Thor jumps down just in time to avoid Hulk's warhammer, which
HITS so hard that it remains lodged in the wall.

With Hulk charging again, Thor RIPS the warhammer out of the
wall and WALLOPS Hulk with it.

Hulk goes CRASHING alongside the arena. He ends up sprawled
out in a pile of rubble, slightly dazed.

                       GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          What?

ABOVE: Val is watching through a set of high-tech
binoculars. She reacts to Thor, reluctantly impressed.
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   54.


Thor advances on Hulk with all the swagger. He takes off his
helmet and CALLS OUT to Hulk, provoking him.

                    THOR
          Hey, big guy. The sun's getting
          real low.

Hulk takes off his helmet.   Scowling.   Teeth GRINDING.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          That's it. The sun's going down.
          I won't hurt you anymore. No one
          will.

WHOOSH! Thor is suddenly dragged out of frame. Hulk has
Thor by the leg and is WHIPPING him against the arena floor.
Over and over and over again.

IN THE VIP BOX: Loki's whole mood shifts. The joy returns to
his face, like "everything will be alright!" Loki LAUGHS.

                    LOKI
          Yes! That's how it feels!
              (to Grandmaster:)
          I'm just a huge fan of the sport.

Thor is SMASHED into the floor face first.

Hulk ROARS and RUSHES Thor with his axe.

                    THOR
          All right. Screw it.

CLANG! The giant weapons CLASH! Now Thor and Hulk are
fighting warhammer versus battleaxe...

...and Thor is winning! He's getting the better of these
exchanges, using Hulk's aggression against him. Thor
continually KNOCKS and/or TRIPS Hulk off his feet while
evading all of Hulk's best attacks.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          I know you're in there, Banner.
          I'll get you out!

One particular vicious blow DISARMS Hulk, and Thor BREAKS
Hulk's axe with the warhammer. Thor then BASHES Hulk in the
chest, KNOCKING him to the ground.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          What's the matter with you? You're
          embarrassing me! I told them we
          were friends!
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   55.


GROWLING, Hulk stands up and HITS Thor with a straight jab
that sends Thor TUMBLING across the arena. Hulk immediately
LEAPS after him and LANDS ON Thor!

Hulk is now on top of Thor as they slide across the arena,
just PUMMELING him with punches. Left-right-left-right.
Thor's head snaps back and forth.

In the carnage, Thor sees VISIONS OF ODIN.   Then-

-his eyes GLOW WHITE WITH ELECTRICITY. Like an instinctual
defense mechanism, Thor suddenly KNOCKS HULK BACK WITH A
BURST OF LIGHTNING!

Seething with electricity, Thor springs to his feet and then
BLASTS HULK WITH A MASSIVE LIGHTNING PUNCH! Hulk is LAUNCHED
BACKWARDS and Thor hits the ground HARD.

                    CROWD
          Thunder! Thunder! Thunder!

                    KORG
          Thunder! Thunder! Thunder!

The crowd gets hushed.   They've never seen this before.

IN THE VIP BOX: Grandmaster is pissed.   Loki is amazed.

Hulk and Thor stagger to their feet. Thor looks at himself,
a little surprised. There are still small charges of
lightning CRACKLING through his veins.

Meanwhile, Hulk RUMBLES towards Thor and they're at it again,
close-quarters boxing. Thor is winning the exchanges,
landing BRUTAL PUNCHES to Hulk's body. And then suddenly-

-BZZZ! The Grandmaster ZAPS him with the Obedience Disk fob!
Thor drops, totally caught off guard!

Hulk plants his feet and JUMPS! He ZOOMS UP, rocketing out
of the arena, up-up-up into the sky! At the apex of his jump
Hulk clenches his fist and begins a missile-like descent.

Val sees this from her ship and decides to take off, like
"This fight is over, time to beat traffic."

                    KORG (CONT'D)
          Another day, another Doug.

Down below, Thor groggily turns over. He does so just in
time to see Hulk coming at him like an atom bomb!

No time to avoid it. KA-BOOM!!! Right before impact Thor's
eyes go lightning white. Hulk HITS Thor like a meteor.
                           BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  56.


     The impact knocks Thor unconscious and we CUT TO BLACK.
     Linger on darkness for a few beats...and then:

     Hela sits on the throne trying to get comfortable, headdress
     & cowl off. Skurge stands at the foot of the throne.

               The common folk aren't exactly
               falling in line. There's a

               front gates.

     Hela sends her BUTCHER TROOPS to deal with it.

                         HELA
               Tell me about yourself, Skurge.

               I just want a chance to prove
               myself.

               When I was young every great King
               had an executioner. Not just to

               their vision. But mainly to
               execute people. Still a great

               I was Odin's executioner.

     Hela holds out her hand and uses her powers to FORM A DOUBLE-
     SIDED OBSIDIAN AXE, which she offers to Skurge.

                         HELA (CONT'D)

       SPLASH! Boots running across the shallow water. We meet a
       family of refugees from the city. FATHER, MOTHER, SON (14),
       and young daughter (8). They're RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES.

       Hot on their heels are a pair of Hela's sinister Butchers,
       hunting like a pack of wolves.

       After scrambling through a grove of trees the family make
       their way through a narrow pass. The Butchers are hot on
       their heels, their growls getting louder behind them when -
       BAM! The son runs right into a tall, immovable object...

      HEIMDALL! No regal armor, no golden helm. This Heimdall has a
      thick beard and is wrapped in a cloak. The rest of the family
      arrive, desperation.

                             HEIMDALL
                Excuse me.

      In one swift motion Heimdall draws the BI-FROST SWORD, steps
      forward and SLASHES through the Butchers, ending them.

      He then turns to the family, gestures for them to follow him.

                          HEIMDALL (CONT'D)
                Sorry about that. These bloody
                things are everywhere. Come on.

      Heimdall approaches the steep face of the mountain. Carved
      into the rock is YGGDRASIL, the world tree. Heimdall kneels,
      whispers a few words under his breath, and... A HUGE SECTION
      OF THE MOUNTAIN FACE VANISHES IN A SHIMMERING ILLUSION!


49    INT. STRONGHOLD - DAY                                             49

      It's busy with activity - hundreds of Asgardians who fled the
      city after Hela's invasion are living here. Men, women, and
      children. Strong and weak, young and old.

      Heimdall turns to the family, even manages a smile.

                          HEIMDALL
                You'll be safe here.

      They enter the stronghold.    As the doors SHUT we go to-

      Thor's eyes POP OPEN. He's lying in a heap on the ground,
      still dirty, bruised, and beat up.

      Thor is being tended to by TWO SAKAARIAN GLADIATOR NURSES who
      are swabbing his wounds. This freaks him out, which results
      in startled thrashing. That freaks out the two Gladiator
      nurses, which results in them RUNNING AWAY.
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  59.


Thor starts to get up, but then winces.      He moves slowly.

He's in a GIANT ROOM with stark graphic patterns on the
walls. With a few achy grimaces, Thor stands up and wanders
around. There's furniture, large cushions, and a sleeping
area enclosed by the SKULL of a giant beast.

NOISE behind him.    Thor follows the noise to find-

Hulk having eased himself into a large steaming JACUZZI. Thor
looks at him quizzically. Hulk isn't angry. He's RELAXED,
but he's not turning into Banner.

                    THOR
          Are we cool?

Hulk grunts.   I guess so.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          It's Hulk in a hot tub.
              (then:)
          How long have you been like that?

                       HULK
          Like what?

                       THOR
          Like this.     Big, green, ...stupid.

                    HULK
          Hulk always Hulk.

Thor takes this in, and then walks over to a window that
looks out across the city. Does some spatial math, realizes:
Thor looks back out the window.

He sees a ramshackle SPACESHIP taking off and ROCKETING
skyward. Higher and higher, it's going for a wormhole when-

-BOOM! One of Grandmaster's Palace Patrol ships, more modern
and heavy duty, BLOWS it out of the sky.

On Thor, wheels turning.      He turns to Hulk.

                    THOR
          How'd you get here?

                       HULK
          Winning.

          Were they wearing one of these when
          you won? How'd you arrive here?

                       HULK
          Quinjet.

Hulk mimes a plane landing in the water.

                     THOR
          Yes.   Where is the Quinjet now?

Hulk stands up, and exits the hot tub, naked.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          That's naked. He's very naked.
          It's in my brain now.

Hulk points out the window.

                       HULK
          Quinjet.

Thor sees the Quinjet in a massive alien junkyard.

                    THOR
          Yes! I'm getting us out of here.
          This is a terrible, awful place.
          You're gonna love Asgard. It's
          big. It's golden. Shiny.

Hulk sits on his bed, eating a pumpkin.

                       HULK
          Hulk stay.

                    THOR
          No, no, no. My people need me to
          get back to Asgard. We must
          prevent Ragnarok.

          Earth loves Hulk. They love you.
          You're of the Avengers. One of the
          team, one of our friends. This is
          what friends do. They support each
          other.

                    HULK
          You're Banner's friend.

                    THOR
          I'm not Banner's friend. I prefer
          you.

                    HULK
          Banner's friend.

                    THOR
          I don't even like Banner.

          Fine. Stay here. Stupid place.
          It's hideous, by the way. The red,
          the white. Just pick a color.

Thor heads for the exit, a wide open door.

                       HULK
          Smash you.

                     THOR
          You didn't smash anything. I won
          that fight

          I smashed you.

                  Moron!   You big child.

      Thor heads to the open entrance.      Hulk smiles, anticipating.

                             HULK
                  Thor go!

                            THOR
                  I am going.

      ZAP! Thor's jolted back by the obedience disk.       There are
      perimeter sensors in the doorway.

      Hulk CHUCKLES at Thor as he hits the floor.      Points.

                             HULK
                  Thor go again!

                  Thor home.

      TIME CUT:

      Thor slumps against the wall, head sagging.

      Hulk grabs his giant battleaxe.       He's armored up.

                            HULK (CONT'D)
                  Hulk trains.

                            THOR
                  That's great. Have fun.

      Hulk exits. Thor watches him go. Then, at the end of the
      hallway Hulk meets up with Valkyrie! They begin play-
      fighting, a clearly friendly rapport.

      Thor can't believe it. He runs to the entrance, but by the
      time he reaches the perimeter sensors they are gone.

      Thor sighs. Walks over to the window. Looks up through a
      wormhole, stars twinkling on the other end of it.

                            THOR (CONT'D)
A57               Heimdall, I know you can see me.                           A57

      Thor continues his plea at the window.

                            THOR (CONT'D)
                  I need you to help me. Help me
                  see.

      Pause. Then Thor's eyes go golden like Heimdall's!         The
      stars in the wormhole begin to WARP OVER THOR AND-

AA57   INT. STREETS OF ASGARD - SAME                                    AA57

       Thor suddenly finds himself in Asgard. Disoriented at first,
       Thor turns to see Heimdall hiding in the shadows.

       Heimdall harshly SHUSHES Thor and gestures for him to get up
       against the wall. Thor complies. Sees the refugees.

       After a beat a roving patrol of Hela's Butchers creep by
       through the street. They don't spot our heroes. Pause.

       Heimdall turns to Thor, speaks only in hushed whispers.

                           HEIMDALL
                 I see you. But you are far away.

                           THOR
                 What's going on here?

                           HEIMDALL
                 Come see for yourself.

       Without warning, Heimdall leads the family out of the alley
       and DASHES down the street. Thor follows...

       ...but then stops. Looks around to see THE OCCUPIED CITY OF
       ASGARD, emitting a smoky aura of chaos. A chilling sight.

       Down the street, Heimdall gestures for the family to slow
       down. He sees something. Ushers them into an alcove.

       Thor joins them just in time to avoid being seen by another
       roving patrol of Hela's Butchers. Heimdall again motions for
       Thor to "shh" until the threat has passed. Then:

                           HEIMDALL (CONT'D)
                 I'm providing refuge in a
                 stronghold build by our ancestors.
                 But if the garrison falls our only
                 escape will is Bi-Frost.

                           THOR
                 You're talking about evacuating
                 Asgard?

                           HEIMDALL
                 We won't last long if we stay.

       Thor LOOKS OUT on a ravaged Asgard, heartsick.

       Hold on the devastated Realm as:

Back to Thor and Heimdall.

                        HEIMDALL (CONT'D)
           Come on.

As Heimdall quickly leads refugees down a safe pathway:

                     HEIMDALL (V.O.) (CONT'D)
           Hela is ravenous. If I let her
           leave, she'll consume the Nine
           Realms and all the cosmos.

Turns back to Thor, approaches him.

                     HEIMDALL (CONT'D)
           We need you.

                     THOR
           I'm working on it, but I don't even
           really know where the hell I am.

Two packs of Butchers arrive simultaneously.        Spot Heimdall.

                     HEIMDALL
           You're on a planet surrounded by
           doorways. Go through one.

                        THOR
           Which one?

Heimdall RIPS into the attacking Butchers, CUTTING them down.

                     HEIMDALL
           The big one!

WHOOSH!   SUDDENLY THOR'S GONE!     BLACK.

After slashing through the Butchers, Heimdall moves towards
the house where he hid the family... and then abruptly stops.

Heimdall turns slightly.       He sees something.

     THUD! THUD! THUD! ...resonates around the room.   Hulk steps
     up to Thor, looking inquisitively down at him.

     Thor hops up, YELLS in Hulk's face.    Paces around.

               I'm not sad, you idiot. I'm pissed
               off! Angry. I lost my father. I
               lost my hammer.

     THUD! THUD! He turns to see Hulk punching his pillow.

     Hulk stops. Stares.

               Whining and crying.   Cry like baby.

Hulk gets sad.   Wanders over to his bed to mope.

Thor realizes he went to far.    Joins Hulk on the bed.

          It's okay.

                     THOR
          You just can't go around throwing
          shields at people. Could have
          killed me.

                    HULK
          I know. I'm sorry.     I just get so
          angry all the time.    Hulk always,
          always angry.

                    THOR
          I know. We're the same, you and I.
          We're just a couple of hot-headed
          fools.

                    HULK
          Yeah, same. Hulk like fire, Thor
          like water.

                    THOR
          We're kind of both like fire.

                      HULK
            But Hulk like real fire. Hulk like
            raging fire. Thor like smoldering
            fire.

                      THOR
            Hulk, I need you to do something
            for me.

TIME CUT:   Morning.

BA-BOOM! BA-BOOM! BA-BOOM!

We follow Two Palace Guards as they enter Hulk's Suite.

Hulk is throwing a LARGE BALL against the far wall. It's so
hard it makes dents in the wall. Hulk stops and turns.

Reveal that the guards are escorting Valkyrie. They leave...
Valkyrie and Hulk face off.

                      HULK
            Angry girl!

Val bounds forward and gives The Incredible Hulk a big hug.
Hulk laughs and then begins playfully roughhousing with Val.

                      VALKYRIE
            What's going on? What do you...?

Hulk steps away, allowing Valkyrie to see Thor. Her smile
disappears. She stares at Hulk, so annoyed. Hulk mopes a
little. Like, "I done bad." Turns back to Thor:

                      VALKYRIE (CONT'D)
            You're so thick-headed that you
            can't tell when someone's hiding
            all the way across the universe and
            wants to be left alone?

                      THOR
            We need to talk.

                      VALKYRIE
            No, you want to talk to me.

Valkyrie turns to leave.

                      THOR
                (to Hulk:)
            I need her to stay.

Valkyrie is at the exit when the UPPER JAWBONE of Hulk's
massive skull bed CRASHES into frame, BLOCKING the doorway.
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  68.


Val shoots an annoyed sneer at Hulk.   Hulk SNORTS back.

                      HULK
          Stay!    Please?

Valkyrie looks him up and down. Obedience Disks to the max.

Hulk begins BOUNCING his ball against the wall again.

Valkyrie walks over to Hulk's bar, picks up an UNOPENED
BOTTLE of liquor. Hulk snorts, disapprovingly. Val puts it
down and finds something cheaper, she pops the cork.

                    VALKYRIE
          All right. Here's the deal. I'll
          listen to you till this is empty.

She TIPS BACK the bottle and starts CHUGGING.

                    THOR
          Asgard is in danger and people are
          dying. We need to get back there. I
          need your help...wow.

                    VALKYRIE
          Finished. Bye.

She has indeed finished. She goes to leave.

                    THOR
          Odin is dead.

Valkyrie stops short (the BALL BANGING noise continues). Her
silence speaks volumes. Thor has a realization.

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          Hela, the Goddess of Death has
          invaded Asgard.

                    VALKYRIE
          If Hela's back then Asgard is
          already lost.

                    THOR
          I'm going to stop her.

                      VALKYRIE
          Alone?

                    THOR
          Nope. I'm putting together a team.
          It's me, you, and the big guy.
                      BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   69.


                     HULK
          No team.   Only Hulk.

                    THOR
          It's me and you.

                    VALKYRIE
          I think it's only you.

                    THOR
          Wait. Just listen. The Valkyrie
          are legend, elite warriors of
          Asgard. You are sworn to defend
          the throne.

                     VALKYRIE
          I'm not getting dragged into
          another one of Odin's family
          squabbles.

                    THOR
          What's that supposed to mean?

                    VALKYRIE
          Your sister. Her power comes from
          Asgard, same as yours.

Hulk's ball rolls into frame. An off screen GRUNT.   Val
picks it up and tosses it back to Hulk.

                    VALKYRIE (CONT'D)
          When it grew beyond Odin's control,
          she massacred everyone in the
          palace and tried to seize the
          throne. When she tried to escape
          her banishment, he sent the
          Valkyrie in to fight her back. I
          only survived because...
              (trails off, brooding)
          Look, I already faced her once back
          when I believed in the throne, and
          it cost me everything. THAT'S
          what's wrong with Asgard. The
          throne, the secrets, the whole
          golden sham.

Pause. Thor moves towards Valkyrie, goes to put a comforting
hand on her shoulder.

                     THOR
          I agree.

Val SNATCHES his hand.   They are close, face to face.
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16              70.


                    VALKYRIE
          Don't get familiar.

                    THOR
          I agree. That's why I turned down
          the throne. But this isn't about
          the crown. This is about the
          people. They're dying and they're
          you're people, too.

Val SHOVES him away.    Thor stumbles back.

                       VALKYRIE
          Forget it.     I have.

                    THOR
              (nods, understanding)
          Okay.

                       VALKYRIE
          Okay.

                    THOR
          Good. Great.

                       VALKYRIE
          Great.

                       THOR
          Thank you.

                       VALKYRIE
          For what?

                       THOR
          For this.

Reveal that Thor has lifted the fob device off Val's belt!

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          Didn't see that did you?

Thor presses the button and ALL THE OBEDIENCE DISKS EMBEDDED
IN HIS NECK AND BELT POWER DOWN! Confident smirk.

                     THOR (CONT'D)
          There... that's better. You know,
          go ahead. Stay here and get drunk
          and enslave people for that
          lunatic. Keep drinking. Keep
          hiding.
              (beat)
          But me...
                             BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   71.


     Thor gestures for Hulk to toss him the ball.   Hulk does.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               I choose to run toward my problems
               and not away from them. Because
               that's what...

     Thor HURLS IT at the MAIN WINDOW - It bounces off, hitting
     Thor in the face. He stands, facing Valkyrie.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               Because that's what heroes do.

     Thor then SMASHES THROUGH THE WINDOW!   Hulk STANDS...

                         HULK
               Friend Stay!


60   EXT. GRANDMASTER'S PALACE - DAY                                    60

     Thor is sliding down the SIDE of the GRANDMASTER'S TOWER.

     He LAUNCHES HIMSELF OFF THE BUILDING and hurtles downward,
     LANDING casually on the street below. Finally free.


61   EXT. THE STREETS OF SAKAAR - CONTINUOUS                            61

     Thor is HAULING ASS.

     Never slowing down, Thor keeps the top of the arena in sight.

     A few blocks back: Hulk is in pursuit. He's BUMPING people,
     SWATTING vehicles out of the way, just being a menace.

     On Sakaar, the citizens APPLAUD for him! Even when Hulk
     DEMOLISHES a man's food cart, the man CHEERS Hulk on!


62   EXT. MASSIVE ALIEN JUNKYARD - CONTINUOUS                           62

     Thor SPRINTS in.   Looks around.   Man, this place is big.

     He RUNS down aisles of crushed and stripped spacecrafts, a
     giant smelter, and then into what looks like a used car lot.

     And then he sees it.   The Quinjet!


63   INT. QUINJET - CONTINUOUS                                          63

     Thor enters and rushes to the controls.

He is pressing buttons and flipping switches.   After a beat-

which SCANS his handprint. Lights up green.

CAH-RUNCH! Hulk BARGES IN through the Quinjet door!

The Hulk approaches, scowling. Any metal that stands in his
way PEELS BACK. Frantic, Thor turns to the Quinjet's console.
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16              73.

          Friend stay!

                    THOR
          No, no, no!

As Hulk enters, he DESTROYS the hull of the Quinjet.

                       HULK
          Stay!

                    THOR
          Stop! Stop breaking everything!

                       HULK
          Don't go!

Thor triggers a message on the flight console.

                    NATASHA (V.O.)
          Nice work, big guy. We don't know
          where Ultron's headed, but you're
          going very high, very fast.

Hulk stops short.    His whole demeanor changes.

Thor steps out of the way so that Hulk can see a recorded
message from NATASHA ROMANOFF on the console.

                    NATASHA (V.O.)
          ...So, I need you to turn this bird
          around, okay? We can't track you in

Hulk is now right up against the console screen.

                    NATASHA (V.O.)
          ...So I need you to help me out.
          Okay? I need you to...

                       HULK
          No!     No, Banner!

Hulk CONVULSES. Drops to his hands and knees. His whole
body warping. Hulk ROARS and GRABS at his face, SHAKING his
head, trying to fight this back. But he can't help it...

...HE'S TRANSFORMING BACK INTO BRUCE BANNER! The transition
is rough and chaotic, it's as if Banner is fighting to get
out of the Hulk. Throughout the process, Hulk SMASHES back
and forth, further WRECKING the Quinjet.

And then, calm.

                    THOR
          Banner. Hey, hey, hey. You all
          right, Banner? Sun's going down.
          Sun's going down. That's it,

          ...Thor?

                     THOR
          Yeah.

Banner is groggy, disoriented. Thoughts, memories, and
observations begin to flood his brain randomly.

                    BANNER
          What happened to your hair?

                    THOR
          Some creepy old man cut it off.

Banner's eyes BULGE.    Trying to process this information.

                    BANNER
          What the hell happened?

Banner rushes to his feet.      Thor follows.

                    THOR
          Banner, there's something you
          should know...

Banner goes to the flight console.

FROM BEHIND THE DISPLAY (within the monitor looking out) we
see fragmented images of the Hulk's trip through deep space.

We see the angry green giant thrash around in zero gravity.

We see Hulk closer to the camera now, looking stressed and
car sick.

THROW FOCUS to see Banner's face watching the video, Hulk's
freaked out face is super-imposed over Banner's freaked out
face.

          Yeah, about that.

Banner hears:

                    GRANDMASTER (O.S.)
          It's bad news, bad news today.

Banner rushes over to the windshield.   Through it he sees-

-Grandmaster, his hologram projection towering over the city.

                    GRANDMASTER (CONT'D)
          Sakaar, hear ye. Attention please.
          I have some bad news. My beloved,

          He kind of runs the place. You
          actually lived in his house.

Back to Banner.    A distant, confused stare.

          I did?

                    THOR
          Yeah. Quite a lot's happened. You

          Did I win?

          No, I won. Easily.

               Seductive GOD of Thunder.    We need
               to move.

                         BANNER
               Oh, no. This is bad. This is
               really, really bad. Thor, I think
               I'm freaking out.

                         THOR
               No, no, no. Don't freak out.
               You're okay. Put these on.

     Thor tosses Banner some clothes.    Banner looks at them.

                         BANNER
               These are Tony's clothes.

                         THOR
               I know, come on.

                         BANNER
               Is he here?

                         THOR
               No, he's not here. But listen.
               Just stay calm, okay? The sun's
               going down. The sun's getting
               really low. Sun's going down.


67   INT. GRANDMASTER'S CHAMBERS - DAY                                 67

     Loki and Valkyrie are brought before Grandmaster, who has at
     least tripled the amount of bodyguards around him.

                         GRANDMASTER
               I'm upset! I'm very upset. You
               know what I like about being upset?
               Blame. Right now, that's the
               mindset that I'm in. And you know
               who I'm blaming?

                         LOKI
               Grandmaster, I-

                         GRANDMASTER
               Hey! Don't interrupt me!

     Topaz hands the melt stick to the grandmaster.

                         TOPAZ
               Here you go.
                           BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   78.


                         GRANDMASTER
               Why are you handing me the melt
               stick? He was interrupting. That's
               not a capital violation.
                   (refocuses)
               My precious champion has come up
               missing and its all because of that
               Lord of Thunder. It's all because
               of him.
                   (to Loki)
               YOUR brother. Whatever the story
               is. Adopted, or complicated. I'm
               sure there's a big history.
                   (to Valkyrie)
               And YOUR contender.

                         LOKI
               My dear friend, if you were to give
               me twelve hours I could bring them
               both back to you.

                         VALKYRIE
               I can do it in two.

                         LOKI
               I could do it in one.

                          GRANDMASTER
               You know what? I woke up this
               morning thinking about a public
               execution. But for now, I'll
               settle for this sweet little "who's
               gonna get him first?" So you're on
               the clock.


64   INT. GRANDMASTER'S PALACE - DAY                                  64

     Valkyrie exits in a hurry.   Loki follows her.

                         LOKI
               What have you done!?

     Val reverses position, putting Loki up against the wall.

                         VALKYRIE
               I don't answer to you, lackey.

                         LOKI
               It's Loki. And you will answer to
               the Grandmaster.
                            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  79.


     Loki moves to reverse position again, but Val BREAKS AWAY,
     drawing her TWO BLADES. In response, Loki UNSHEATHES two
     long Sakaarian daggers. They eye each other, and then-

     -FIGHT! A fast-paced and deadly battle of knives. After a
     few exchanges, Val connects a BIG SHOT that SLAMS Loki into
     the wall. He scowls.

                         LOKI (CONT'D)
               Why would you help my brother
               escape with that green fool?

                         VALKYRIE
               I don't help anyone.

     Loki trails off.   He sees her wrist markings.   A realization.

                         LOKI
               You're a Valkyrie. I thought the
               Valkyrie all died gruesome deaths?

     Now Val ATTACKS Loki! She gets him up against the wall, her
     blade against his throat. She looks ready to kill him.

                         VALKYRIE
               Choose your next words wisely.

                         LOKI
               Terribly sorry. Must be a very
               painful memory...

     Quick as a rattlesnake, Loki GRABS Val's head and CASTS an
     illusion. Val's eyes CLOUD OVER with darkness as we go to:


65   EXT. HELA'S DIMENSION - FLASHBACK                                 65

     A barren black void of death.

     The VALKYRIE, in old school Asgardian armor, charge through
     the DIMENSIONAL RIFT, an open portal to Asgard and the Nine
     Realms. Val witnesses these events as moments frozen in time.

     - Reveal Hela in all her glory, black lightning everywhere.

     - Dozens of Valkyrie falling through the dark space.

     - The Valkyrie's winged horses lay dead on the battlefield.

     - Through the open portal we can see the throne of Asgard.

     - Hela advancing on the final few Valkyrie - one is Val,
     frozen in fear, shell-shocked.
                            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16               80.


     - Hela FIRING black weapons at Val...

     - One of Val's sisters DIVING IN at the last second, SHOVING
     VAL back through the PORTAL and taking the fatal hit!

     - Val lands hard in the Throne room.

     - Val scrambling to her feet and trying to re-enter the rift
     but it's too late. It closes, the last image she sees is Hela
     dealing the final killer blow to her doomed Valkyrie sisters.


66   EXT. GRANDMASTER'S PALACE - CONTINUOUS                          66

     We find Val on her knees in front of Loki, trembling from
     this visceral memory that she's tried so hard to suppress.

     She turns on Loki, raging, and knocks him out.


69   EXT. SAKAAR - STOOP - DAY                                       69

     BANNER sits, groaning, head in his hands. THOR is beside
     him, rubbing his back and on the lookout for threats.

                         THOR
               The sun's going down. It's getting
               really low. The sun's going down.
               It's getting real low.

                         BANNER
               Would you stop saying that!?

                         THOR
               I just need you to stay calm.

                          BANNER
               Calm!?   I'm on an alien planet!

                         THOR
               It's just a planet.   You've been on
               a planet before.

                           BANNER
               Yeah!    One!

                         THOR
               Now you've been on two. That's a
               good thing. It's a new experience.

                         BANNER

               than my brain can handle the

The whole thing is totally
different this time.
    (beat)
In the past, I always felt like
Hulk and I each had a hand on the
wheel, but this time it's like he
had the keys and I was locked in
the trunk.

          THOR
Alright, well, you're back now,
that's all that matters.

          BANNER
No, it's not what matters. What
I'm trying to tell you, is that if
I turn into the Hulk again, Banner
may never come back. And we're
stranded on a planet that is
designed to stress me out.

          THOR
We're not stranded, I'm gonna
figure out a way to get us home.

             BANNER
Thank you.

          THOR
Not your home, though.   Asgard.

             BANNER
What?

          THOR
Listen, my people are in great
danger. You and I, we have to
fight this really powerful being
who also happens to be my sister.

          BANNER
Okay, that is so wrong on so
many... I don't wanna fight your
sister. That's a family issue.

          THOR
No, she's an evil being.

          BANNER
I don't care what she is.   I'm not
fighting any more beings.   I'm sick
of it. I just told you.

          If I turn into the Hulk, I am never
          gonna come back again. And you
          don't care.

                    THOR
          No, no. I'm putting together the
          team. The Hulk is the fire.

                    BANNER
          Wait, you're just using me to get
          to the Hulk.

                        THOR
          What?   No!

                    BANNER
          It's gross. You don't care about
          me. You're not my friend.

                    THOR
          No! I don't even like the Hulk.
          He's all like... "smash, smash,
          smash." I prefer you.

                        BANNER
          Thanks.

                    THOR
          But if I'm being honest, when it
          comes to fighting evil beings, he
          is very powerful and useful.

                    BANNER
          Yeah, Banner's powerful and useful,
          too.

                    THOR
          Is he though?

                    BANNER
          How many PhDs does Hulk have?
          Zero. How many PhDs does Banner
          have? Seven.

                    THOR
          Fine, you don't have to fight
          anyone. But we're in danger here,
          so we have to move.

Thor grabs a towel from the ground next to him. He puts the
towel over his head.

                    BANNER
          What are you doing with that?

          I need a disguise.    I'm a fugitive.

                    BANNER
          I need a disguise.

                    THOR
          You are the disguise.

Banner finds a pair of Stark's sunglasses in his jacket.

                    BANNER
          I'll be Tony Stark.

                     THOR
          What?

                     BANNER
          Yeah.   Tony and the gypsy.

                    THOR
          No, no you're not Tony.    You're
          Bruce Banner.

                    BANNER
          Then why did you dress me up like
          Tony?

                    THOR
          Because you were naked.

                    BANNER
          Okay, I'll give you that.

They stand up. Banner adjusts his crotch.

                    THOR
          What are you doing?    Stop doing
          that!

                    BANNER
          Tony wears his pants super tight!

                    THOR
          Why are you being so weird?

                    BANNER
          I don't know. Maybe the fact that I
          was trapped for two years inside of
          a monster made me a little weird.

Banner flashes green.    Thor calms him down.

                           THOR
                 Hey. It's okay. You're good.
                 Calm down. Come on. Listen, we're
                 gonna go to Asgard and you're not
                 gonna have to think about the Hulk
                 ever again. All right?

                              BANNER
                 All right.

      WHAP!   Banner gets nailed in the face with green paint.

      Caught off guard, Thor and Banner are swept off into-


69A   EXT. PARADE OF VICTORS - CONTINUOUS                              69A

      It's a massive street festival where revelers dance and cheer
      while throwing powdered paint at each other... in celebration
      of Hulk! Green EVERYWHERE!

      Inside the parade it is total chaos. Thor searches for Banner
      as he's PELTED with green powder. Pandemonium. In the crowd
      Thor sees a pack of SCRAPPERS on the hunt for the reward.

      Thor spots Banner. He surges forward, GRABS Banner, and
      pulls him into another alley, but sees-

      -Valkyrie is approaching from down the alley!

                           THOR
                 This is bad. Banner!     Banner!

      Thor pulls Banner back into the crowd. Thor briefly turns to
      see that he is no longer holding Banner's - it's the arm of a
      SMALL ALIEN who squeals in fright.

      Thor sees Banner across the crowd.

      Thor MUSCLES his way through the madness, knocking rowdy fans
      aside. He reaches Banner and holds him protectively,
      awkwardly trying to rub his shoulders.

      One of the aliens Thor knocked aside turns out to be a
      MASSIVE SCRAPPER. He rears up, turning on Thor and Banner.

      WHAM! From out of nowhere, Valkyrie CLOCKS this Scrapper
      with a brass knuckle right cross. The Scrapper DROPS.

      Thor looks at Val while clutching Banner like a child.

                              THOR (CONT'D)

                Hi.

                          THOR
                I was gonna do that.

                          VALKYRIE
                Yeah, well, I did it first.

                          THOR
                That's good. What are you doing
                here?

                          VALKYRIE
                What are you doing here?   I thought
                you were leaving.

                          THOR
                I got sidetracked.

                          VALKYRIE
                What's with the...

                          THOR
                It's my disguise.

                          VALKYRIE
                But I can see your face.

                          THOR
                    (covers his face)
                Not when I do this, you can't.
                    (then:)
                Your hair looks nice. I like what
                you did with it. Change it? Washed
                it maybe?

      Valkyrie just rolls her eyes, takes Thor by the arm.

                          BANNER
                    (to Thor:)
                What are those things on her eyes?
                Are those the people that she's
                killed? She's so beautiful and
                strong...


69B   EXT. SAKAARIAN STREET - MOMENTS LATER                        69B

                Look, I've spent years in a haze
                trying to forget my past. Sakaaar
                seemed like the best place to drink
                and forget and to die one day.

                          THOR
                I was thinking that you drink too
                much, and that probably was going
                to kill you.

                          VALKYRIE
                I don't plan to stop drinking, but
                I don't want to forget. I can't
                turn away anymore. So, if I'm
                donna to die, well... it may as
                well be driving my sword through
                the heart of that murderous hag.

                Good.

      They arrive at a door.     Before they enter:

                          VALKYRIE
                Yeah. So I'm saying that I wanna
                be on the team. Has it got a name?

                          THOR
                Yeah, it's called the Revengers.

73   INT. VALKYRIE'S APARTMENT - DAY                                 73

     Valkyrie opens the front door, revealing-

     -Loki! He is as restrained as anyone could be, sitting in
     the middle of the apartment with a dozen chains around him.

                            LOKIE
               Surprise.

     Thor TOSSES a bottle.    It BOUNCES off of Loki's head.

               OW!

                         THOR
               Just had to be sure.

               So, last time I saw you, you were
               trying to kill everybody. Where
               are you at these days?

                         LOKI
               It varies from moment to moment.

     Val's apartment is a shithole. Bottles everywhere, blood-
     spattered clothes in the corner, a knife in the wall, etc.

     Banner gives Thor a look like "she might be crazy."   Thor
     responds with a "No, she's cool" gesture.

Val lays something on the bed. Unwraps it to reveal AN OLD
ASGARDIAN SWORD. Thor's eyes go wide as she sharpens it.

                    THOR
          Is that... a Dragonfang?

                    VALKYRIE
          It is.

                    THOR
          My God. This is the famed sword of
          the Valkyrie.

                    VALKYRIE
          Sakaar and Asgard are about as far
          apart as any two known systems.
          Our best bet is a wormhole just
          outside the city limits.

A nice clean wormhole outside the city.

                    VALKYRIE (CONT'D)
          Refuel on Xandar and be back in
          Asgard in around 18 months.

                    THOR
          Nope. We're going through that one.

Thor points at the nightmare tornado wormhole over the ocean.

                    VALKYRIE
          The Devil's Anus?

                    BANNER
          Wait, whose anus are we going
          through?

                    THOR
          For the record, I didn't know it
          was called that when I picked it.

                    BANNER
          That looks like a collapsing
          neutron star inside of an Einstein-
          Rosen Bridge.

                    VALKYRIE
          We need another ship.   That would
          tear mine to pieces.

                    THOR
          She's right. We need one that can
          withstand the geodetic strain from
          the singularity.

          And we need one with cup holders,

                    VALKYRIE
          There are one or two ships,
          absolute top-of-the-line models--

          I don't mean to impose, but the

All eyes turn to Loki. Valkyrie throws her bottle at him. It
smashes above his head.

          And suddenly you're overcome with
          an urge to do the right thing.

          was just talking to him just a
          couple minutes ago and he was
          totally ready to kill any of us.

                    VALKYRIE
          He did try to kill me.

                    THOR
          Yes, me too. On many, many
          occasions. There was one time when
          we were children, he transformed
          himself into a snake, and he knows
          that I love snakes. So, I went to
          pick up the snake to admire it and
          he transformed back into himself
          and he was like, "Yeah, it's me!"
          And he stabbed me. We were eight
          at the time.

Loki suppresses a smile.

          If we're boosting a ship, we're

82   INT. GRANDMASTER'S PRIVATE GARAGE - CONTINUOUS                   82

     Multi-tiered platforms with dozens of cool spaceships.

     The elevator doors open. Thor supports Loki's weight with
     Loki faking a fatal injury.

                         THOR
               Get help! Please! My brother, he's
               dying.

     A small group of Sakaarian guards turn toward Thor and Loki.
     One guard aims his gun at them.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               Get help! Help him!

     Thor picked up Loki and flings him at the guards, knocking
     them down like bowling pins. Loki stands up and Thor steps
     to Loki's side.

                          THOR (CONT'D)
               Classic.

                         LOKI
               I still hate it. It's humiliating.

                         THOR
               Not for me, it's not.

                         THOR (CONT'D)
               Which one's the ship she told us to
               get?

                         LOKI
                   (points)
               The Commodore.

     The COMMODORE starship. Brand new, solidly built, sleek.

     As they walk towards it a DUPLICATE LOKI FORMS and LAGS
     BEHIND. The Loki walking with Thor is an illusion.

                         LOKI (CONT'D)
               Though I feel it won't make much of
               a difference...

      We follow the real Loki as he slinks away towards the
      security system panel. He activates the panel and brings up a
      screen that will set off all the alarms palace-wide!

                            THOR (O.S.)
                Oh, Loki.

      Loki turns to see Thor looking not at all surprised.

                          LOKI
                I know I've betrayed you many times
                before, but this time it's truly
                nothing personal. The reward for
                your capture will set me up nicely.

      He triggers the alarm.


82B   INT. GRANDMASTER'S PRIVATE GARAGE - CONTINUOUS                  82B

                          THOR
                Never one for sentiment, were you?

                          LOKI
                Easier to let it burn.

      But then Loki sees Thor holding up a fob device. Loki
      realizes that Thor affixed an Obedience Disk on him in that
      heart-to-heart moment.

                            THOR
                I agree.

      BZZZT! Thor ZAPS Loki and HOLDS DOWN the button. Loki HITS
      the ground, WRITHING in pain. Thor approaches. Pause.

                          THOR (CONT'D)
                Oh brother, you're becoming
                predictable. I trust you, you
                betray me. Round and round in
                circles we go.

      Thor continues to "think about it" for a beat while Loki
      convulses in agony on the floor. Finally, Thor kneels down:

                          THOR (CONT'D)
                See, Loki, life is about, it's
                about growth. It's about change.
                But you seem to just wanna stay the
                same. I guess what I'm trying to
                say is that you'll always be the
                God of Mischief, but you could be
                more. I'll just put this over here
                for you.

      Thor places the fob on top of the security panel, so close
      but so far from Loki's paralyzed reach.

                          THOR (CONT'D)
                Anyway, I got places to be so good
                luck.


82C   INT. COMMODORE SHIP - MOMENTS LATER                            82C

      Thor is seen in the cockpit.

                          THOR
                All right, I can figure this out.
                It's just another spaceship.


83    EXT. GRANDMASTER'S PALACE - MOMENTS LATER                      83

      The massive garage doors OPEN. This sets off BLARING ALARMS
      to alert the palace of this unauthorized departure.

      The Commodore ship LIFTS OFF from the garage. In the cockpit
      Thor pushes forward on the throttle. The ship ZOOMS ahead.

                          GRANDMASTER
                Loyal Sakaarians, Lord of Thunder
                has stolen my ship and my favorite
                champion. Sakaarians, take to the
                skies. Bring him down. Do not let
                him leave this planet.

      BELOW: Pilots hastily RUSH to their Palace Patrol ships so
      as to pursue the Commodore.

      The first two ships out of the garage SWOOP AROUND behind
      Thor. The Patrol ships are LOCKING weapons on Thor when-

      -BOOM-BOOM!   They are both blown out of the sky by-

                Good shot!


85    EXT. SAKAAR - DAY                                              85

      Thor's ship and Val's ship now ZIP through the city in
      tandem. On the horizon we can see-

86   INT. COMMODORE SHIP - CONTINUOUS                                   86

     Thor in the pilot's seat.     Val comes in over the radio.

                          VALKYRIE (V.O.)
                Open the doors.

     Thor looks over the console.    FLIPS a switch.


87   INT. WARSONG SHIP - CONTINUOUS                                     87

     Valkyrie STEERS down, dropping altitude. Her whole ship
     spins upside down, yet her cockpit is still right-side up.

                          VALKYRIE
                I hope that you're tougher than you
                look.

                          BANNER
                Why?

     Val MAXES OUT the throttle. The ship ACCELERATES.     When
     she's under Thor's ship, Val presses-

     -THE EJECT BUTTON!   Banner is LAUNCHED OUT OF THE SHIP!


88   INT. COMMODORE SHIP - CONTINUOUS                                   88

     Thor at the controls. We hear an incoming scream of
     increasing volume. "aaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!"

     THUNK!   Banner is SHOT UP into the ship. ROUGH LANDING.

     Banner casually lifts his arm up and gives a THUMBS UP.

     CLUNK! CLUNK! CLUNK! CLUNK! The ship is being fired upon by
     another pursuit vehicle. Banner joins Thor.

                           BANNER
                Shouldn't we be shooting back or
                something?

                          THOR
                Yes, we should.
                    (into the radio:)
                Where are the guns on this ship?

                There aren't any. It's a leisure
                vessel.

                          THOR / BANNER
                WHAT?!

                          VALKYRIE
                Grandmaster uses it for his good
                times, orgies and stuff.

      Thor and Banner look around. The CEILING has MIRRORS ON IT
      and the floor is covered in a Sakaarian PERSIAN RUG.

                          BANNER
                Did she just say the Grandmaster
                uses it for orgies?

                          THOR
                Yeah. Don't touch anything.

      CLUNK! CLUNK! CLUNK! More fire from behind.


A89   INT. WARSONG SHIP - THE SAME                                    A89

      Val's ship is hit. She rotates the cockpit to face BACKWARDS
      and opens fire, taking out the attacking chase-ship.

      But now in Val's cockpit... Sparks. Smoke. Alarms.

      In the distance Val clocks the Grandmaster's Riot Ship
      raining terror down on the masses. A look of determination as
      she pops the HATCH above - her ship is now a convertible.


89    EXT. SAKAAR - CONTINUOUS                                        89

      Meanwhile, Warsong ZOOMS out from under Thor's ship, still
      ACCELERATING. Val has turned her ship into a missile, and
      its trajectory is the Grandmaster's Riot Control Ship!

      Grandmaster is still taunting his former captives below when-

      -KA-BOOM! Warsong SLAMS into the Statesman, specifically the
      Grandmaster's projection! Enlarged Grandmaster stumbles,
      struggling to maintain his balance.

      Warsong EXPLODES while the Statesman is knocked off kilter
      and goes down for a hard landing in the market!

     flight path!

                         THOR
               No!

     Thor experiences a brief instant of heartbreak/devastation...

     ...but then notices a spec coming out of the explosion.

     THWACK! Val hits the ship's windshield and grabs hold!
     Residual smoke wafting off of her.

     Thor pilots the ship out of the city into the Wastelands as
     six Sakaarian fighter ships race after them in formation.

     The following dogfight will proceed across the Wastelands and
     then out over the Sakaarian Ocean.


93   INT. COMMODORE SHIP - CONTINUOUS                                 93

     Val is still on the windshield. GUNFIRE! One of the
     pursuing ships WINGS the Commodore, causing it to LURCH.

                         THOR
               Get inside!

                         VALKYRIE
               In a minute!

     Val pulls herself up and then RUNS DOWN THE ROOF OF THE SHIP!

     Thor and Banner follow the THUMPING of her footsteps.


94   EXT. COMMODORE SHIP - CONTINUOUS                                 94

     In full sprint, Val LEAPS OFF and-

     -LANDS HARD on the lead Sakaarian ship! Val begins TEARING
     into the enemy ship with her bare hands!


95   INT. COMMODORE SHIP - CONTINUOUS                                 95

                I should probably go and help.

      Thor abruptly exits, leaving Banner at the ship's controls.

                          THOR (CONT'D)
                Here, take the wheel.

                          BANNER
                No. I don't know how to fly one of
                these.

                           THOR
                You're a scientist.   Use one of
                your PhDs.

                          BANNER

      Thor LEAPS into the middle of this high-speed dogfight!

      These two superhuman Asgardians begin jumping between their
      pursuer's ships, taking out guns, engines, and pilots with
      their bare hands. It's spectacular and epic.

      Thor RIPS out an engine block and uses it to crush a pilot.

      Val DRAGS her blades down the entire underbelly of a ship
      before BACKFLIPPING to another.

      Back and forth they go, even passing each other mid-flight a
      few times. One by one the Sakaarian ships GO DOWN.


A97   INT. COMMODORE SHIP - SAME                                       A97

      Banner is frantically STEERING the ship, doing his best to
      dodge all the incoming fire. He peels away and is followed
      by Topaz, who is in her own chase-ship.

      Banner notices a button with a little explosion icon.

                          BANNER
                Okay, come on. There's gotta be a
                gun on this thing. That looks like
                a gun.

      Banner PRESSES the button.

      The ship's lighting changes, like a disco effect. Weird dance
      music BLASTS over the PA, followed by Grandmaster's voice.

                          GRANDMASTER (V.O.)
                It's MY BIRTHDAY! It's MY BIRTHDAY!
                It's MY BIRTHDAY.

      Banner is so confused. Then we hear FIREWORKS.


B97   EXT. THE SAKAARIAN OCEAN - CONTINUOUS                           B97

      MASSIVE PLUMES of powder paint SHOOT OUT of the ship followed
      by a huge colorful fireworks display. And then a
      rainforest's worth of confetti is dumped from the hull!

      Topaz is suddenly in the middle of a party smoke screen! She
      tries to fly her way through all the fireworks and streamers,
      but ultimately she hits a HARD CRASH LANDING in the ocean.

                          BANNER
                Yeah!

      Meanwhile, Thor and Val land together on the one remaining
      Sakaarian ship. Val leaks a smile to Thor.

      Thor YANKS OFF the cockpit cover, Val TOSSES the pilot, and
      together they PUSH FORWARD on the throttle.

      The ship SPEEDS FORWARD. Just then Banner pulls the Commodore
      back on the scene, hovering above them.

      They LEAP UP towards the Commodore's open doors as the ship
      CRASHES and EXPLODES behind them!

      Korg sees and then points to the SUPERCRUISER.

                          KORG
                There she is. Our ticket out of

      The OBEDIENCE DISK FOB on the ground.   He picks it up.

      Korg then notices LOKI, TWITCHING and CONVULSING on the
      ground. He's barely made any progress towards the fob.

      Loki locks eyes with Korg, a desperate and furious plea.

      Korg looks at Loki, then at the fob, then back to Loki.

      Loki gives Korg a maniacal, pleading look.

      Korg gets it.   He deactivates the obedience disk.

      Loki stands, dusts himself off.

                             LOKI
                Thank you.

                          KORG
                Hey man, we're about to jump on

                Here we go!

      The Commodore ship is swallowed up by the towering nightmare
      that is the Devil's Anus wormhole.

      The ship's onboard computer SHORTS OUT. Darkness in the
      cabin. All around them the hull CREAKS. Under strain.

      The commodore heads toward the end of the wormhole.   Debris
      flies past the camera.

      Thor, Val, and Banner all look like they are in extreme pain,
      as there's great concern the ship could be torn apart.

98A   EXT. ASGARD - PLAZA - DAY                                        98A

      SKURGE ADDRESSES A CROWD OF ASGARDIANS.     HELA BEHIND HIM
      leaning against FENRIS, her GIANT WOLF.

                          SKURGE
                Asgardians, some misguided soul has
                stolen the Bifrost sword. Tell us
                where it is, or there will be
                consequences. Bad ones.

      We are now in the smoking ruins of Asgard. 100+ Asgardians
      have been forced to line in a large piazza, all exhausted,
      all scared. Patrolling the perimeter are Hela's Butchers.

                            SKURGE (CONT'D)
                Well?

      Hela points to an Asgardian woman off camera.

                            HELA
                You.

      Hela's butchers approach the crowd and find the Asgardian
      woman. Skurge closes his eyes and looks downward.

                            ASGARDIAN CITIZENS
                No! Stop!

      Hela's butchers pull the Asgardian woman to the steps. They
      shove her and she falls tot he floor. The woman is on her
      hands and knees as Skurge turns to her. She trembles as
      Skurge holds his battle axe with both hands.

                           HELA
                Well?   Executioner?

                          ASGARDIAN MAN
                Wait! I know where the sword is.

      -SPIT OUT into the calmness of outer space.

      Banner, Thor, and Valkyrie are all unconscious. Banner wakes
      up and looks outside, the stars reflected in the windshield.
      Thor and Valkyrie wake up. Outside they see-

      -THE REALM OF ASGARD, a flat city in the middle of an island
      floating in space.

                          VALKYRIE
                    (mixed emotions)
                I never thought I'd be back here.

      The ship descends into the clouds above Asgard.

                          BANNER
                I thought it'd be nicer. I mean,
                not that it's not nice. It's just,
                it's on fire.

      THE SHIP CLEARS THE CLOUDS TO REVEAL-

      -ASGARD IN RUINS. A DEVASTATED GHOST TOWN. FIRES, WRECKED
      BUILDINGS, DEAD SOLDIERS. IT LOOKS LIKE ALL HOPE IS LOST.

                          VALKYRIE
                Here, up here in the mountains.

      A projected map on the console shows the mountain where the
      stronghold is located. There is a red dot in the mountain,
      indicating where the Asgardian citizens are.

                          VALKYRIE (CONT'D)
                Heat signatures. People clustered
                together. Hela's coming for them.

                          THOR
                Okay, drop me off at the palace and
                I'll draw her away.

                          VALKYRIE
                And get yourself killed?

                          THOR
                The people trapped down there are
                all that matters. While I'm
                dealing with Hela, I need you two
                to help get everyone off Asgard.

                 Asgard. She's here.


109    EXT. PALACE - PLAZA - DAY                                       109

       Valkyrie is helping Thor load a MASSIVE ASGARDIAN BLASTER
       into the side of the Commodore.

                           THOR
                 Now the ship has guns.

                           VALKYRIE
                 I'll take it from here.

       Thor produces a bundle of FABRIC WITH GOLD AND WHITE PLATING.

                           THOR
                 I found this in the armory.

       Val immediately recognizes its significance. She doesn't
       want to be affected by this gesture, but can't help it.

       They share a look as the Commodore lifts off into the air.
       Before she's out of earshot, Val calls down:

                           VALKYRIE
                 "Your majesty." Don't die.    You
                 know what I mean.

       The Commodore flies away, leaving Thor on the balcony.


109A   INT. THRONE ROOM - CONTINUOUS                                   109A

       Thor's footsteps ECHO through the empty space. He sees the
       items from the vault scattered beside the throne.

       Thor sees a chunk of plaster from the dismantled fresco. He
       picks it up and sees that this piece of fresco bears a
       portion of his own face. Thor then looks up, off camera.

       His eyes go wide. He looks up at the ceiling where his
       painting used to be and finds the original which depicts Odin
       and Hela conquering the nine realms, with Hela's butchers all
       around them. Hela holds Mjolnir.

      Hela, cowl & headdress on, stands with Skurge outside of the
      mountain stronghold where Heimdall is hiding the refugees.
      Hela raises her arms and FIRES LONG THIN BLACK LANCES, which
      BURROW into crevices on the mountainside. From here, we TILT
      UP, looking straight at the sky.

      With the lances in place, Hela bears down. Summoning all her
      focus and energy, she begins to VIBRATE this manifestation of
      her powers, PUNCTURING crevices and splitting rock apart.

      The whole mountain begins to RUMBLE.

      CRACK!    Hela RIPS OPEN THE SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN!

      There is an avalanche of rock and debris.     The mountain
      around the doors completely destroyed, the    doors fall across
      the ravine, creating a bridge for Hela and    Skurge. Hela
      waits patiently for the dust to settle and    sees-

      -an empty stronghold.    No sign of Heimdall or the refugees.

      Banner flies the Commodore out across the city.

      Val puts on her gloves, cuff on her forearm, boots, and
      breastplate. She grabs her dragonfang sword and puts it at
      her side. Val mans the Blaster, and we see that she's changed
      into the CLASSIC WHITE & GOLD VALKYRIE ARMOR (Thor's gift).
      Bad ass.

      Hela is about to throttle Skurge when-

      -A LOUD GONG SOUND. It's coming from far away, but the deep
      note resonates across the land. GONG-GONG-GONG-GONG!

      Hela looks to the Palace, her eyes narrowing with rage.

      Odin's signature spear. SLAMMING the butt of it on the
      ground. GONG...GONG...

      Hela steps into the throne room.   Headdress & cowl off.

      Thor stops the GONGING when he sees Hela.

                          THOR
                Sister.

      Smiling, Hela gradually crosses the huge space towards Thor.

                          THOR
                I love what you've done with the
                place. Redecorating, I see.

                I understand why you're angry. And
                you are my sister, and technically
                have a claim to the throne. And

                To be honest, I expected more.

123   EXT. RAINBOW BRIDGE - CONTINUOUS                                 123

      Val pilots the Commodore towards the battle on the city side
      of the bridge. Skurge's battlion of Butchers surge forward-

      -BOOM! Val LANDS the Commodore on top of them, SKIDDING
      across the bridge, CRUSHING the front line of the Butchers,
      and KNOCKING Skurge aside. The impact triggers the party
      function, setting off PARTY MUSIC and a FIREWORKS DISPLAY.

      Val emerges from the ship in full battle mode. Behind her,
      the Commodore FIREWORKS provide a spectacular HERO BACKDROP.
      She draws DRAGONFANG and smiles as Butchers begin swarming
      towards her. She is where she needs to be.

      Meanwhile, the Asgardians huddle together, packed so tight
      that some begin to fall off the side of the bridge, loved
      ones grabbing them and pulling them back up. There's no hope.

Heimdall FIGHTS off Butchers, but gets KNOCKED DOWN.   Just as
it looks like he's about to take a killing blow-

-BAM!   The Butcher is BLASTED.

Korg steps into frame, holding the blaster!

                      KORG
           Hey man.   I'm Korg.   This is Miek.

Miek steps into frame, waving.

                     KORG (CONT'D)
           We're going to jump on that
           spaceship and get out of here.
           Want to come?

Heimdall is beyond confused, but then... a LOUD NOISE. Hela
looks down to see-

-EMERGING FROM THE THICK LOW-HANGING FOG IS LOKI! Resplendent
in horns, arms spread wide, seeming to float towards the
bridge like a mythical angel of mercy.

                     LOKI
           Your savior is here!

The fog dissipates around him, revealing that Loki's standing
on THE GRANDMASTER'S SUPERCRUISER! For reasons that will
become clear, we will henceforth call this ship THE ARK.

And Loki is not alone. He's brought along all the prisoners
from the Contest of Champions. Armed with gladiator weapons.
The Ark slows to a stop at the middle of bridge.

ABOVE: Even with Hela's hand on his throat, Thor can't help
but smile at the sight of Loki. Hela however sneers.

                     HELA
           That little shit.

BELOW: Loki and the Sakaarian gladiators JUMP OFF the Ark and
onto the bridge, joining the fight against Hela's forces.

                      LOKI
           Did you miss me?    Everybody on that
           ship, now.

The Asgardian refugees begin POURING onto the ark. The only
way onto the Ark is a narrow plankway, so there is an
immediate bottleneck effect - thousands of frightened people
all pushing for a chance at salvation. It's mayhem.

Loki walks through the crowd to Heimdall.

      Hela is perturbed, but not enraged. She turns her gaze back
      to Thor for a final farewell.

                          HELA
                A valiant effort, but you never
                stood a chance.

      Thor looks up from his friends protecting his people as they
      frenziedly board to Ark to-

      -the twilight stars coming out over Asgard.   There's a
      glimmering of stardust in the sky.

       the first time.

                           ODIN (O.S.)
                 Even when you had two eyes you were
                 only seeing half the picture.

       Thor turns to see his father, sitting where we last saw him.
       Thor falls to his knees.

                           THOR
                 She's too strong.   Without my
                 hammer I cannot--

                 Are you Thor, God of Hammers?

       Thor looks up, meeting his gaze.

                 That hammer helped you control your
                 power, focus it. But it was never
                 the source of your strength.

       Odin stands, as does Thor.

                           THOR
                 It's too late. She's already taken
                 Asgard.

                           ODIN
                 Asgard is not a place. Never has
                 been.
                     (gestures around him)
                 This could be Asgard. It is
                 wherever our people stand. And
                 right now those people need you.

       Odin turns to go.

                           THOR
                 I'm not as strong as you.

                            ODIN
                 No.   You're stronger.

       As Odin turns to leave, a SHADOW in the shape of HELA'S
       HEADDRESS falls across him. He looks up and we are...

       instant, Thor and Hela are ENGULFED in a bolt of lightning!!

          she grows. She'll hunt us down.

comes to a realization.

          After you.

Thor ATTACKS. They CLASH, kicking off this monumental
confrontation. Hela manifests pitch black weapons to attack
Thor, but Thor is conjuring powerful bolts of electricity
with the same speed and ferocity.

Just as Thor is surging with newfound lightning powers,
Hela's powers seem to be enhanced as well.

The battle is relentless and fast-paced. Thor is holding his
own against Hela. Maybe they can win this thing.

After several fearsome exchanges, Hela PUNCTURES his shoulder
and then DARTS past him with startling speed.

       Skurge keeps FIRING and then-

                             SKURGE (CONT'D)
                 HELA!

       Hela turns to see Skurge blasting his way through her
       Butchers, trying to make his way to her.

       Disappointed, Hela FIRES a blade through Skurge's heart.

       Skurge has been killed...

       ...but the Ark now ASCENDS unfettered.

140    INT. ODIN'S VAULT - SAME                                       140

       LOKI places Surtur's skull in the Eternal Flame.

                           LOKI
                 With the Eternal Flame, you are
                 reborn.

       As the fire CRACKLES, Surtur's skull begins to GROW.


141    EXT. RAINBOW BRIDGE - CONTINUOUS                               141

       Hela has Val in her clutches, but her focus is on the
       aftermath of Skurge's last stand and the Ark's subsequent
       escape. She's furious, about to unleash hell when-

                            THOR (O.S.)
                 HELA!   Enough!

       Hela turns to see Thor, having yanked out the harpoon...

       ...and it looks like he's laying down his sword!

                           THOR (CONT'D)
                 You want Asgard? It's yours.

                           HELA
                 Whatever game you're playing, it
                 won't work. You can't defeat me.

                           THOR
                 No, but he can.

       KA-BOOM! EXPLODING through the roof of the palace is SURTUR!

       This is a different Surtur than the opening. He is slowly
       but steadily GROWING in size, and he carries with him a
       massive flaming sword, which GROWS as well.

       Surtur's arrival literally SHAKES the bedrock of Asgard,
       causing FISSURES to spiderweb all around him, and DISLODGING
       some of the foundation on the bridge and around the palace.

       Hela's eyes go wide. She wasn't expecting this.

                            HELA
                 No...NO!


A142   OMITTED                                                        A142

B142   EXT. RAINBOW BRIDGE - CONTINUOUS                                  B142

       In the background the Ark continues its ascent, now high up
       above the city.

       Hela's attention is on Surtur as the palace COLLAPSES around
       him. So she is unprepared for-

       -SHLNK! Mustering up all her remaining strength, Val DRIVES
       Dragonfang through Hela's chest, effectively PINNING her to
       the bridge.

       Refocused on Val, Hela goes to deliver a death blow when-

       -Thor BOLTS forward!   He PULLS Val from Hela's clutches.

       Thor turns and FIRES LIGHTNING INTO DRAGONFANG, which
       DISLODGES the section of the bridge that Hela is pinned to!

       The ground beneath Hela BREAKS FREE and she goes FALLING down
       into the expanding fissure in Asgard's bedrock.

       Badly injured, Thor and Valkyrie look up to see-

       -Surtur INCREASING in size, now towering over the palace.

                           SURTUR
                 Tremble before me Asgard, for I am
                 your reckoning!

       Surtur swings his sword, destroying an entire city block.

       THOR and VALKYRIE look up.

                           VALKYRIE
                 The people are safe.     That's all
                 that matters.

                           THOR
                 We're fulfilling the prophecy.

                           VALKYRIE
                 I hate this prophecy.

                           THOR
                 So do I, but we have no choice.

       In the background, Hulk hops up onto the bridge.   Looks
       around, zeroing in on Surtur.

                           SURTUR
                 Surtur destroys Asgard, he destroys
                 Hela so that our people can live.
                            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  124.


      Hulk CHARGES behind them, still unseen by Thor and Val.

                          THOR
                We need to let him finish...
                    (finally sees Hulk)
                No!

      HULK LEAPS UP AND LANDS ONTO SURTUR'S FACE and begins
      POUNDING the fire giant with furious punches!

                           THOR (CONT'D)
                Hulk no!   Stop it you moron!!

      It's not doing much damage, but the shock of it plus Hulk's
      impact makes Surtur take a destructive step back.

      Hulk is trying to rip out one of Surtur's horns when Surtur
      reaches up and GRABS HIM with a giant fiery hand.

      Surtur HURLS Hulk away from him.   Sends him CRASHING DOWN.

      Hulk stumbles to his feet, dazed and SMOKING. After gathering
      his bearings, Hulk gets REALLY ANGRY and heads back towards
      Surtur for round two, but-

                          THOR (CONT'D)
                Hulk, just for once in your life,
                don't smash!

                          HULK
                But...big Monster.

                          VALKYRIE
                Hulk! Let's go.

      Hulk stops. Looking between Surtur and Thor & Val. This is
      a real Sophie's Choice for Hulk. On the one hand, he really
      wants to kill that thing. On the other hand...

                           HULK
                Friends.

      Hulk PICKS UP Thor and Valkyrie.   He then squats down, and-

      -LEAPS WITH ALL HIS MIGHT! The trio SHOOTS UP into the night
      sky like a rocket blasting off. Their trajectory is heading
      right at the Ark as it reaches the lower orbit of Asgard.


142   EXT. ARK - PLATFORM - CONTINUOUS                                   142

      Hulk lands gently, as though he were stepping out of bed.     He
      casually DROPS Thor and Val, both exhausted.

143   EXT. ASGARD - SAME                                               143

      A bird's eye view shows TOTAL CARNAGE AND MADNESS on Asgard.

      Surtur has grown to EXTINCTION LEVEL SCALE.   SLASHING AWAY at
      the landscape below, when suddenly-

      -A MASSIVE BLACK SPIKE EXPLODES FROM THE WATER AND SLAMS INTO
      SURTUR'S CHEST!

      From beneath the water, Hela EXPLODES back onto the scene,
      riding a huge spiked manifestation of her powers.

      She's going for Surtur.   ATTACKING with all her might.

      Surtur winds up, holding his sword above his head.

                          SURTUR
                I am Asgard's doom!!

      True to his word, Surtur fulfills his destiny and-

      -DRIVES HIS SWORD THROUGH HELA AND INTO THE HEART OF ASGARD!


144   INT. THE ARK - MAIN CABIN - SAME                                 144

      Everyone watches as Surtur drives his sword through Asgard.

                          KORG
                The damage is not too bad. As long
                as the foundations are strong, we
                can rebuild this place. It will
                become a haven for all people and
                aliens of the universe...

      When the fiery sword touches the crystalline base of Asgard
      there is a VIOLENT DETONATION OF ENERGY!

      A CATACLYSMIC EARTHQUAKE!   The entire realm is SPLIT IN TWO!

      In an instant, Thor's home is BLOWN TO PIECES.

      Asgard is gone.

                          KORG (CONT'D)
                Nope, those foundations are gone.
                Sorry.

      Stay on Thor as he processes the decisions he's made.

                          THOR
                What have I done?

      Heimdall joins him.

                          HEIMDALL
                You saved us from extinction.
                Asgard is not a place, it's a
                people.


145   EXT. SPACE - INDETERMINATE TIME                                 145

      The Ark cruises among the chaos that once was Asgard.


146   INT. THE ARK - CAPTAIN'S QUARTERS                               146

      Thor looks at his reflection in a mirror. His wounds are
      bandaged, including his now missing eye. His armor is clean.

      Thor takes a beat, as though trying to get used to the sight
      of the man looking back at him.

                          LOKI (O.S.)
                It suits you.

      Thor turns to reveal Loki standing by the door.    A smile.

                          THOR
                Perhaps you're not so bad after
                all, brother.

                             LOKI
                Maybe not.

                          THOR
                Thank you, Loki.

      Thor picks up a soap dish.

                          THOR (CONT'D)
                And if you were here, I might even
                give you a hug.

      Thor THROWS the dish at Loki.   Loki catches it.

                          LOKI
                Do we have to hug now?

      Thor smiles.

       The giant cruiseliner is gliding through space, the twinkling
       of stars all around it.


149    INT. THE ARK - MAIN DECK                                         149

       Thor steps out onto the main deck to see an assembly of both
       Asgardian and Sakaarian refugees awaiting their King.

       Thor looks over his people and begins to walk through the
       crowd. His subjects part, allowing him through.

       It is the antithesis of the opening coronation from the first
       THOR movie. The people aren't cheering and lauding him, but
       rather they are smiling. Humbly bowing. Grateful.

       And Thor isn't acting arrogant. Not trying to show off any
       swagger. He is stately. A contemplative and dignified king.

       At the end of the procession, Hulk, Loki, Valkyrie, and
       Heimdall stand next to the CAPTAIN'S CHAIR.

                           VALKYRIE
                 Your throne.

       Pause. Reluctant acceptance. Thor sits down.

       Flanking him on opposite sides are Valkyrie and Heimdall.
       Behind/towering above them is the Hulk. Loki joins them.

                           HEIMDALL
                 So, King of Asgard.

       Thor turns around to see THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE staring back,
       silently awaiting word from their new King. Now feeling the
       true weight of the crown, Thor takes a moment... and then:

                              HEIMDALL (CONT'D)
                 Where to?

                           THOR
                 I'm not sure. Any suggestions?
                 Miek, what's your home planet?

       Angle on Korg, who is holding Miek (sans robot exoskeleton).

                           KORG
                 Oh, Miek's dead. I accidentally
                 stepped on him on the bridge, I've
                 just felt so guilty I've been
                 carrying him around all day...

       Miek WRIGGLES to life.   Korg lights up.

                            KORG (CONT'D)
                  Miek, you're alive! He's alive
                  everyone! What was your question?

       Thor looks forward, taking charge of this one.

                            THOR
                  Earth it is.

       CUT TO BLACK.

       THE END.


TAG    INT. THE ARK - DAY                                              TAG

       THOR and LOKI look out the window.

                            LOKI
                  Do you really think it's a good
                  idea to go back to Earth?

                             THOR
                  Sure!   They love me there.

                            LOKI
                  Let me rephrase: Do you really
                  think it's a good idea to bring me
                  back to Earth?

       Thor smiles, getting it.    Pats Loki on the shoulder.

                            THOR
                  Probably not. But don't worry,
                  brother...I've got a feeling that
                  everything's going to work out.

       Then through the window, they see-

       -THE MASSIVE FORM OF SANCTUARY-2, THANOS' WARSHIP
       approaching.


TAG1   EXT. THE ARK - SAME                                             TAG1

       A wider view allows us to see all of Sanctuary-2, dwarfing
       the Ark in size.

       END.
