    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-
                         BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                    2.


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!

9 INT. THE OBSERVATORY - SAME 9

    Skurge continues showing off for the ladies.
                          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.
                          BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 8.


                         MAIN TITLE


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.
                             BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  9.


                            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.

                     BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                13.
                   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.

                          BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 15.


                        LOKI (CONT'D)
              Ow-ow-ow! Alright! I know exactly
              where he is.

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.
                         COLLEGE GIRL 2
              Ask him.
                        COLLEGE GIRL 1
              Hi. Would you mind taking a picture
              with us?
                             BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16             16.


                        THOR
              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!

    Thor is suddenly inside Doctor Strange's lair!

                   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.

            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16       18.


         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.

                          DR. STRANGE
               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?
                      THOR
         Loki.

    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.

23 INT. THE OBSERVATORY - CONTINUOUS 23

    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.


24 EXT. ASGARD - THE MOUNTAINS - SAME 24

    A mysterious HOODED FIGURE watches Hela's arrival at the
    Observatory and begins a steady descent towards the city.


25 EXT. SAKAAR - THE WASTELAND SHORE - DAY 25

    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.

                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 28.


                      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.

30 INT. WARSONG SHIP - DAY 30

    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.


26 EXT. OUTSKIRTS OF ASGARD - DAY 26

    CLOSE ON: Hela, headdress retracted, hair down, her beautiful
    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,

              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-

     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

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.

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.

                     BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  37.


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.

         On any other world, I'd be like,
         millions of years old. But here on
         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?
                   THOR
         God of Thunder.    Tell him.
                   LOKI
         I've never met this man in my life.
                   THOR
         He's my brother.
                    LOKI
         Adopted.
                   GRANDMASTER
         Is he any kind of a fighter?

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

                   THOR
         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...
                    THOR
         Asgard.

         Any contender who defeats my
         champion, their freedom they shall
         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.

         Except for my mom and her
         boyfriiend, who I hate. As
         punishment, I was forced to be in
         here and become a gladiator. Bit
         of a promotional disaster.
             (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?

         Doug has. Doug!
             (realizes)
         Oh, right, Doug's dead. That's
         right. Everyone who fights the
         Grandmaster's champion perishes.

         What about you? You're made of
         rocks.

         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?

                 the hell out of this place.
                           KORG
                 That's exactly what Doug used to
                 say. See you later, new Doug.
     Korg walks away and approaches Miek.


A35 EXT. ASGARD - STREETS - SUNSET A35

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

A36 INT. THRONE ROOM - CONTINUOUS A36

     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 leads them towards the throne.

     Beneath the surface are older Frescos.      These ones are far
     more dark and sinister.
                              BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16              43.


     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.
                         HELA (CONT'D)
               Most of the stuff in here is fake.
     Next: The Casket of Ancient Winter.
                            HELA (CONT'D)
               Or weak.
     Next: Surtur's skull.
                         HELA (CONT'D)
               Smaller than I thought it would be.
     Next: The Tesseract.    She hesitates:
                             BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 44.


                         HELA (CONT'D)
               That's not bad?
                   (notices:)
               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.
                         HELA (CONT'D)
               Want to see what true power looks
               like?
     Hela looks down into the darkness below.
     With her hand aflame, Hela JUMPS down into the chasm!


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.
                         HELA
               Fenris. My darling, what have they
               done to you?
     She lifts her flaming hand above her head. She slams her hand
     into the ground.
                         HELA (CONT'D)
               With the Eternal Flame, you are
               reborn!
     The fire spreads out, covering Fenris and Hela's old army.
                             BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 45.


      As the fire covers the skeletons, they SHUDDER TO LIFE.
                           HELA (CONT'D)
                 I've missed you. I've missed you
                 all.
      HELA'S BUTCHERS, rise up before their commander.
      ABOVE:   Skurge looks down, worried.
      BELOW: A sinister light returns to Fenris's eyes as he
      stands proudly before his master, allowing her to pet the fur
      of his terrifying face.


C36A INT. THE ARENA - GLADIATOR CELLS - NIGHT C36A

      Thor sits against the wall.   Quietly praying.
                           THOR
                 Odin, I bid you take your place in
                 the halls of Valhalla...
                     (then:)
                 Where the brave shall live forever.
                 Nor shall we mourn but rejoice-
              THOR (CONT'D)                     LOKI (O.S.)
      -for those that have died the    -for those that have died the
      glorious death.                  glorious death.
      Reveal Loki standing across the cell.   Thor gives him a hard
      look.
                           LOKI (CONT'D)
                 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.
                           LOKI (CONT'D)
                 You didn't think I'd really come
                 and see you, did you? This place
                 is disgusting.
      Thor throws another stone through Loki.
                           LOKI (CONT'D)
                 Does this mean you don't want my
                 help?
      Thor throws another stone through Loki.
                     BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                    46.


                   LOKI (CONT'D)
         Look, I couldn't jeopardize my
         position with Grandmaster, it took
         me time to win his trust. He's a
         lunatic, but he can be amenable.

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
         throne, stripped Odin of his power,
         stranded him on Earth...
             (on Loki:)
         -to die, releasing the Goddess of
         Death.
             (back to Thor:)

                           BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 47.
                        THOR (CONT'D)
              Have I said enough, or do you do
              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
              savage. I've placed a large wager
              against you tomorrow. Don't let me
              down.
    Loki SHIMMERS, and his illusion vanishes.   Korg runs in to
    try to kick him.
                        KORG
              Piss off, ghost!
                  (then:)
              He's freaking gone.


40 INT. THE ARENA - RECEIVING AREA 40

    Thor, Korg, and a gaggle of other prisoners/fighters have
    been led from their cells to a PRE-FIGHT HOLDING AREA.
    Korg and Thor are by the weapons rack.
                        KORG
              Yuck! There's Still someone's hair
              and blood all over this. Guys, can
              you clean up the weapons once you
              finish your fight? Disgusting
              slobs.
                  (then:)
              Thor...wanna use a big wooden fork?
                         THOR
              No.
                        KORG
              Yeah, not really useful unless
              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:


36 INT. THRONE ROOM - SUNSET 36

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

              What is that noise?

              The common folk aren't exactly
              falling in line. There's a
              resistance trying to knock down the
              front gates.
    Hela sends her BUTCHER TROOPS to deal with it.
                        HELA
              Tell me about yourself, Skurge.
                        SKURGE

              meant was what is your ambition?
                        SKURGE
              I just want a chance to prove
              myself.

                  (then:)
              When I was young every great King
              had an executioner. Not just to
              execute people, but also to execute
              their vision. But mainly to
              execute people. Still a great
              honor.
                  (beat)
              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)
              And you will be my executioner.

46 EXT. ASGARD - MOUNTAIN CREEK - DAY 46


A46 OMITTED A46

      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.

48 EXT. ASGARD - MOUNTAIN RAVINE - DAY 48

     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-

51 INT. HULK'S WARRIOR SUITE - DAY 51

     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.

         you won? How'd you arrive here?

         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

         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

         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.

                 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.

                 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:
                        BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   64.


                    HEIMDALL (O.S.) (CONT'D)
          She draws her power from Asgard and
          grows stronger everyday.

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.

BINOCULARS POV: Heimdall looking right at us, the Bi-Frost sword visible in his hand.

Reveal Skurge on a palace tower balcony, surveilling the city with Asgardian E-noculars. Skurge lowers the E-noculars.

There is conflict on his face. He knows that he should report this to Hela immediately...yet he doesn't spring into action.

57 INT. HULK'S WARRIOR SUITE - NIGHT 57

    Thor absentmindedly fidgets with his Obedience Disk.
    THUD! THUD! THUD! ...resonates around the room.   Hulk steps
    up to Thor, looking inquisitively down at him.
                          HULK
              Thor sad.
                          THOR
              Shut up.
    Hulk HITS Thor, bullying him into opening up.
                        HULK
              THOR SAD!!!
    Thor hops up, YELLS in Hulk's face.    Paces around.
                        THOR
              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.
                        HULK
              Whining and crying.   Cry like baby.
                        THOR
              You're not even listening.
    Thor KICKS a random helmet.
                        HULK
              Don't kick stuff.
                        THOR
              You're being a really bad friend.
                        HULK
              You bad friend!
                        THOR
              You know what we call you?
                          HULK
              No.
                        THOR
              We call you the stupid Avenger.
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                66.


                   HULK
         You're tiny Avenger!

Hulk throws a shield that nearly decapitates Thor.

                   THOR
         What, are you crazy?
                      HULK
         Yes.
                   THOR
         You know what? Earth does hate you.

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

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

                      HULK
         No.
                   THOR
         I'm sorry I said those things.
         You're not the stupid Avenger.
         Nobody calls you the stupid
         Avenger.
                      HULK
         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.
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                67.


                     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.

         All right.     Come on.

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

-the flight deck POWERS UP! Thor places his hand on a pad which SCANS his handprint. Lights up green.

         Welcome, Point Break.

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.


                   HULK
         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
         stealth mode...

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.

                     BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                 74.


Thor rushes to Banner's side to help ease the transition.

                   THOR
         Banner. Hey, hey, hey. You all
         right, Banner? Sun's going down.
         Sun's going down. That's it,
         breathe. I won't hurt you. Sun's

         ...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
         It looks good.
                    THOR
         Thanks.
                   BANNER
         Where are we? How's Nat?
                   THOR
         Nat is good, I'm sure.
                   BANNER
         And what about Sokovia?
                    THOR
         Sokovia?
                   BANNER
         The city, Sokovia.   Did we save it?
                   THOR
         Banner, listen.
                    BANNER
         What?
                    THOR
         Sokovia. Ultron.     That was two
         years ago.

                   BANNER
         What are you saying? I've been Hulk
         for two years?
                   THOR
         I'm afraid so.

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.

                   QUINJET (V.O.)

                      BANNER
         Banner.

         Welccome, Strongest Avenger.
                   THOR
             (puzzled)
         What?
                   BANNER
         Ship's log...

THE SHIP'S LOG POPS UP ON SCREEN.

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.

                   BANNER (CONT'D)
         Thor, where are we?
                       BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16               76.


                   THOR
         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,
         exalted Champion has turned up
         missing. Take to the streets.
         Celebrate my champion.
                   BANNER
         Who's that?
                   THOR
         He kind of runs the place. You
         actually lived in his house.

Back to Banner. A distant, confused stare.

                      BANNER
         I did?
                   THOR
         Yeah. Quite a lot's happened. You
         and I had a fight recently.
                      BANNER
         Did I win?
                   THOR
         No, I won. Easily.
                   BANNER
         Doesn't sound right.
                   THOR
         Well, it's true.
                   GRANDMASTER
         It seems that that criminally
         seductive Lord of Thunder has
         stolen him away.
                          BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                    77.


                        THOR
              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.

                        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.

              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
              My neurons, they're firing faster
              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.
                   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.

                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.

                         VALKYRIE
               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

     Valkyrie escorts Thor and Banner through the street.
                         VALKYRIE
               Who is this guy?
                              BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16            86.


                         THOR
               He's a friend.
                             BANNER
               Who?    Me?    I'm Bruce.
     As Val leads them into Sakaarian apartment building.
                         VALKYRIE
               I feel like I know you.
                         BANNER
               I feel like I know you too.

A73 INT. SAKAARIAN BUILDING - HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS A73

     Continue down the hallway.
                         VALKYRIE
               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.
                             THOR
               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.
                             BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16               87.


                           VALKYRIE
              Revengers?
                        THOR
              Because I'm getting revenge.
              You're getting revenge.
                  (to Banner:)
              Do you want revenge?
                        BANNER
              I'm undecided.
                           THOR
              Okay.
                        VALKYRIE
              Also, I've got a peace offering.


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.
                           LOKI
              OW!
                        THOR
              Just had to be sure.
                        LOKI
              Hello, Bruce.
                        BANNER
              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.
                     BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                88.


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.
                     BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   89.


Banner gives Thor a quizzical look.

                   BANNER
         And has an offline power steering
         system that could also function
         without the on-board computer.
                   VALKYRIE
         And we need one with cup holders,
         because we're gonna die. So,
         drinks!
                   BANNER
         Do I know you? I feel like I know
         you.
                   VALKYRIE
         I feel like I know you, too. It's
         weird.
                   THOR
             (to Banner:)
         What do you say, doctor? Uncharted
         metagalactic travel through a
         volatile cosmic gateway. Talk about

Thor and Banner high five as Val stares at them blankly.

           BANNER                      THOR (CONT'D)

We need a ship. Need a ship.

                   VALKYRIE
         There are one or two ships,
         absolute top-of-the-line models--
                   LOKI
         I don't mean to impose, but the
         Grandmaster has a great many ships.
         I may eve have stolen the access
         codes to his security system.

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

                   VALKYRIE
         And suddenly you're overcome with
         an urge to do the right thing.
                   LOKI
         Heavens, no. I've run out of favor
         with the Grandmaster.

         And in exchange for codes and
         access to a ship I'm asking for
         safe passage...through the anus.
                   THOR
         You're telling us you can get us
         access into the garage without
         setting off any alarms?
                   LOKI
         Yes, brother. I can.
                   BANNER
         Okay, can I just... A quick FYI, I
         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.

                   VALKYRIE
         If we're boosting a ship, we're
         gonna need to draw some guards away
         from the palace.
                   LOKI
         Why not set the beast loose?
                    THOR
         Shut up.
                   VALKYRIE
         You guys have a beast?
                   THOR
         No, there's no beast. He's just
         being stupid. We're going to start
         a revolution.

               mainframe for the Obedience Disks
               have been deactivated and the

                         GRANDMASTER
               Oh! I don't like that word!

               Mainframe?
                         GRANDMASTER

A77 EXT. THE STATESMAN - CONTINUOUS A77

     Grandmaster's chambers are actually the oversized cockpit of
     a A HUGE RIOT CONTROL SHIP (The Statesman) that can dock

     The Statesman has DISLODGED from the palace and is now

                         LOKI
               I disagree. Open communication was
               never our family's forte.
                         THOR
               You have no idea. I've had quite

              Odin brought us together, it's

              Loki, I thought the world of you.

                    LOKI
          It's probably for the best that we
          never see one another again.

Beat. Thor pats Loki affectionately on the shoulder.

Hold on Loki. Did Thor just get through to him?

                    THOR
          That's what you always wanted.

Beat. Then:

                    THOR (CONT'D)
          Hey, let's do "Get Help."
                       LOKI
          What?
                    THOR
          "Get Help."
                       LOKI
          No.
                    THOR
          Come on, you love it.
                       LOKI
          I hate it.
                    THOR
          It's great. IT works every time.
                    LOKI
          It's humiliating.
                    THOR
          Do you have a better plan?
                       LOKI
          No.
                    THOR
          We're doing it.
                          BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                   95.


                        LOKI
              We are not doing "Get Help."

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...
                            BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16               96.


     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.
                             BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16               97.


     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-


84 INT. WARSONG SHIP - SAME 84

     Val is all focus, flying and FIRING. Banner sits shotgun.
                            BANNER
               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-
                           BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                    98.


    -the Statesman, the enlarged Grandmaster, and his Riot
    Control team raining down hell on the revolting prisoners.


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?
                           BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                99.


                         VALKYRIE (V.O.)
               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!

90 INT. COMMODORE SHIP - CONTINUOUS 90

    Thor and Banner witness the fiery explosion of Val's kamikaze
    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.


91 OMITTED 91

92 EXT. SAKAAR - THE WASTELANDS - CONTINUOUS 92

    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

    Thor and Banner exchange a look.   Pause.
                           BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                  101.


                         THOR
               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
               None of them are for flying alien
               spaceships!


96 EXT. THE SAKAARIAN OCEAN - CONTINUOUS 96

     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.
                           BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16               102.


     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!


97B INT. COMMODORE SHIP - CONTINUOUS 97B

     Thor and Valkyrie join Banner in the cockpit.
                         VALKYRIE
               Guys, we're coming up on the
               Devil's Anus!


97F INT. GRANDMASTER'S GARAGE - DAY 97F

     KORG and MIEK enter, leading a group of gladiator rebels.
     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
               that ginormous spaceship. You
               wanna come?
                         LOKI
               You do seem like you're in
               desperate need of leadership.

     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.

     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

101 INT. COMMODORE SHIP - CONTINUOUS 101

     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.

107 EXT. ASGARD - MOUNTAIN RAVINE - DAY 107

     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.

110 EXT. ASGARD - MOUNTAIN STRONGHOLD - SAME 110

     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.


111 EXT. SECRET MOUNTAIN PATH - SAME 111

     Heimdall leads the migration of refugees out the other side

112 INT. COMMODORE - DUSK 112

     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.


114 INT. THRONE ROOM - CONTINUOUS 114

     Find Thor on the throne holding GUNGNIR - THE KING'S SPEAR,
     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.
                         HELA
               You're still alive.
                         THOR
               I love what you've done with the
               place. Redecorating, I see.
                         HELA
               It seems our father's solution to
               every problem was to cover it up.
                         THOR
               Or to cast it out.
                   (then:)
               He told you you were worthy.   He

               I understand why you're angry. And
               you are my sister, and technically
               have a claim to the throne. And
               believe me, I would love for
               someone else to rule. But it can't
               be you. You're just...the worst.

     GUNFIRE FROM ABOVE!
     The Commodore swoops onto the scene, Valkyrie manning the
     blaster and FIRING on Fenris, who stops his charge.
     As the refugees retreat, they come to a stop because...
     ...SKURGE IS LEADING AN ARMY OF BUTCHERS BEHIND THEM!
     Heimdall and the refugees are now trapped on the bridge
     between Fenris and Skurge!

     Val and Banner hold the remaining Butchers off with GUNFIRE.
     Heimdall is looking toward the palace, concern for Thor. But
     his attention soon goes back to protecting the mass of
     humanity behind him. He looks out to the Observatory
                         HEIMDALL

     Hela PROJECTS a large spiked lance, Thor barely rolls out of

     Banner soars through the air. It's an awe-inspiring image as
     we follow Banner's trajectory downwards. His face is
     determined, arms churning, ready to Hulk out...
     ...except it doesn't happen.     Worry washes over his face.
     SPLAT! Banner FACEPLANTS on the bridge, seeming to break
     every bone in his body. He looks dead.
     Pause. Fenris SNIFFS him curiously. We notice one vein on
     Banner's neck PUMPING GREEN. Then-
     -Banner suddenly EXPLODES UP as THE INCREDIBLE HULK, UPPER-

     Thor looks down.   Distraught.   Heartsick.


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.

          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.

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.

                She's too strong.   Without my
                hammer I cannot--
                          ODIN
                Are you Thor, God of Hammers?
      Thor looks up, meeting his gaze.
                          ODIN (CONT'D)
                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...

                Tell me brother, what were you the
                God of again...?
      CLOSE ON Thor's clenched fist, small arcs of electricity
      forming.
      -THE LOUDEST CRACK OF THUNDER YOU'VE EVER HEARD! In an
      instant, Thor and Hela are ENGULFED in a bolt of lightning!!
      KA-BOOM! Hela is BLASTED OUT of the lightning and sent
      CRASHING into the streets of Asgard. Her costume is
      tattered, the black extensions of her power hanging off her
      body in some places. She appears to be unconscious!
      All around Asgard, EVERYONE looks up at this massive strike.

      Asgardians onto the Ark.
      Within the melee are Loki, Korg and the Sakaarians. Loki
      SLASHES through Butchers wielding his two long daggers.

      Beyond that, Thor is wielding electrified weapons and

      Lost in the chaos is Skurge, who sees the tides turning.   He

      Hulk winds up and SLAMS Fenris in the snout!
      Fenris snaps back, revealing that-

      Fenris is knocked off, plummeting off of Asgard into space.
      Hulk grabs hold of the slippery rocks, desperately trying to

      Our heroes have drastically thinned down the herd of

      It's pandemonium. The Ark's engines are deafening, but you
      can still hear the sound of terrified people SCREAMING.
      Thor helps Loki to his feet.

                You're missing an eye.
      Valkyrie finishes off a handful of enemies, but then notices
      something. She WHISTLES to get the others' attention.
                          VALKYRIE
                This isn't over.
      All around the bridge, our heroes look to see-
      -Hela arriving at the far side of bridge.   She is seething
      with power, a vision of death.
      Having just come out of this huge battle, they are all weary
      and nursing injuries. Loki and Val are hurting worse than
      Thor.
      Hela walks towards them.   Menacing and deliberate.
      Thor, Loki, and Val step forward to protect the Asgardians.
      They huddle together.
                           THOR
                I think we should disband the
                Revengers.
                          LOKI
                Hit her with a lightning blast.
                          THOR
                I just hit her with the biggest
                lightning blast in the history of
                lightning. It did nothing.
                          VALKYRIE
                We need to hold her off until
                everybody's on board.

Thor looks at the people boarding behind him.

                   THOR
         It won't end there. The longer
         Hela's on Asgard the more powerful
         she grows. She'll hunt us down.
         We need to stop her here and now.
                   VALKYRIE
         What's our move?
                   LOKI
         I'm not doing "Get help."

Thor sees Hela approaching. He sees the palace behind her. He comes to a realization.

                    THOR
         Asgard's not a place, it's a
         people.
             (then)
         This was never about stopping
         Ragnarok...it was about causing
         Ragnarok.
             (to Loki:)
         Go to the vault. Surtur's crown.
         It's the only way.
                   LOKI
             (impressed)
         Bold move, brother. Even for me.

Loki runs off, leaving Thor and Val to deal with Hela.

                      THOR
         Shall we?
                      VALKYRIE
         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.

       Thor continues FIGHTING Hela while Valkyrie BLOCKS Hela's

       Hela isn't landing any fatal blows, but she's carving Thor up
       and making steady progress towards the Ark.
       However, the Asgardian refugees finally make it aboard. An
       injured Heimdall, Korg, and Miek are the last to get on.
       Thor and Heimdall make eye contact.    Thor calls out:

      The first wave of Butchers arrives on board, heading straight

      Everyone turns to see SKURGE, now uncloaked, wielding his two

                          SKURGE
                For Asgard.
      Skurge runs forward, LEAPS off the Ark, and LANDS on the
      bridge right where all the Butchers are coming to life.
      BLASTING AWAY the Butchers before they can get aboard.

                HELA!   Enough!

                won't work. You can't defeat me.

                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 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

     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-

     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.

A149 EXT. THE ARK - SPACE A149

      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...
                             BLUE DRAFT 05/20/16                128.


      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.



[Post-credits scene: the Grandmaster comes out of a crash-landed ship at Sakaarians]

Grandmaster: Oh. Oh. I... I just... I gotta say, I'm proud of you all. This revolution has been a huge success. Yay, us! Pat... pat on the back. Pat on the back. Come on. No? Me too. 'Cause I've been a... a big part of it. Can't have a revolution without somebody to overthrow. So, uh, you're welcome. And, uh, it's a tie.
