!!''Dr. Jane Foster''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jane_foster_thor_7645.png]]

->'''Portrayed By''': NataliePortman
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/{{Thor}} | Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''

->''"'Magic's just science we don't understand yet.' Creator/ArthurCClarke."''

An astrophysicist who finds out that a wormhole she's been observing is really the Bifröst Bridge. Helps out Thor, and eventually falls in love with him.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: She's usually a level-headed scientist, but anytime Thor turns on the charm, she turns into a giggling schoolgirl. She's also exhilarated in ''The Dark World'' whenever she encounters Asgardian technology.
* ActionSurvivor: How she deals with gods and robots and TheMenInBlack.
* AdaptationalIntelligence: Not that Jane is in any way unintelligent in the comics, but in the MCU, not only is she an astrophysicist, which is already an extremely hard field on its own, she also has ''three'' degrees.
* BadassBookworm: She relies on her intellect and her inventions when taking part in the action.
* BadassNormal: In a world of gods, aliens, and superheroes, Jane is just a normal person with no enchantments or physical enhancements. Yet she uses her intelligence to solve problems and remains an active part of the conflicts.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's usually easy-going, but she will throw a punch at people who get her mad.
* BrainyBrunette: She is an astrophysicist with three degrees.
* ClarkesThirdLaw: She quotes it to strengthen her argument about her research, which is admittedly going into less grounded territory.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not very often, but by ''The Dark World'', she reacts like this at times.
-->'''Darcy:''' It's okay, we're Americans!\\
'''Jane:''' Is that supposed to make them like us?
* {{Determinator}}: It's clear from her very first scene that she's ready to do anything for her research, namely ''driving directly into a tornado''.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: She slapped Thor twice, and Loki later. Granted, they probably felt nothing, but she still physically assaulted a pair of gods.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Regarding Jane's motivation in ''Thor'', [[http://www.tribute.ca/news/index.php/black-swans-natalie-portman-flies-high-with-your-highness-and-thor/2011/03/17/ Natalie Portman explained]] that her theories about connecting dimensions have her being looked down by the scientific community. [[spoiler: If the post-credits scene is anything to go by, she finally got it]].
--> '''Natalie Portman:''' Everyone thinks she’s on the fringe of science and that she’s this kook, so this is her opportunity to prove herself.
* FullNameBasis: Even to the non-Asgardians. Selvig and Darcy are the only ones who use FirstNameBasis with her.
* GadgeteerGenius: In ''Thor'', she mentions that she built most of her equipment herself.
* GirlinessUpgrade: Downplayed and lampshaded early on in ''The Dark World'', complete with her first outfit of the picture incorporating ProperTightsWithASkirt. Later scenes show her wearing something like "Asgardian noblewoman casual wear".
* GirlsNeedRoleModels: [[http://www.comicvine.com/jane-foster/4005-12337/forums/jane-foster-is-an-astrophysicist-in-thor-movie-585104/ Part of the reason why]] Creator/NataliePortman signed up to play Jane was that she was very enthusiastic about playing a female scientist protagonist.She accepted even before the character was fully defined and helped create her.
--> '''Natalie Portman:'''I was like, ‘What a great opportunity, in a very big movie that is going to be seen by a lot of people, to have a woman as a scientist.’ She’s a very serious scientist. Because in the comic she’s a nurse and now they made her an astrophysicist. Really, I know it sounds silly, but it is those little things that makes girls think it’s possible. It doesn’t give them a [role] model of ‘Oh, I just have to dress cute in movies.’”
* HotScientist: A lovely astrophysicist.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With Thor, who is both much taller and broader than her.
* LivingMacGuffin: She becomes one for a while in ''The Dark World'' after inadvertently becoming the host of the Aether.
* MugglesDoItBetter: In ''The Dark World,'' the Dark Elves are able to bypass the defenses of the Asguardians, yet they're no match for the gravitic stabilizers that she jury-rigged into field disrupters.
* NeutralFemale: In ''The Dark World'', [[spoiler:this is averted. The sensors she and Selvig build, combined with the Convergence, come in handy to fight the Elves and save people's lives.]]
* NiceGirl: One of the clearest examples of the MCU. She's kind, easy-going and quite willing to take part in solving conflicts.
* OddFriendship: With Darcy, the perky ''political'' scientist.
* OnlySaneMan: She easily buys into Thor's story, but does so in a scientific way. Her photographs show that Thor was in the Einstein-Rosen bridge, and she points out that it has to lead to somewhere.
* PutOnABus: SHIELD put her on one to safety before the events of ''The Avengers''; see RealLifeWritesThePlot. Then TheBusCameBack and she appears in ''The Dark World'' where she's quite miffed that Thor didn't come to see her during his last visit to Earth, and she had to learn about it from the news.
** She's also out for ''Age of Ultron''; apparently she has been kept quite busy with work ever since her work on the convergence took off.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** NataliePortman was pregnant when ''The Avengers'' was filming, so Jane only appears as a still photo (and Natalie ''wanted'' to come back, too).
** Defied for ''The Dark World'', as the crew delayed filming until she was out of bed rest.
* RelationshipUpgrade: To OfficialCouple with Thor as of the end of ''The Dark World''.
* RealAwardFictionalCharacter: Thor mentions in ''Ultron'' that there people are talking of her winning a Nobel Peace Prize for her work on the convergence.
* ScienceHero: In ''The Dark World,'' Jane's research and scientific knowledge help to propel the plot forward and ultimately resolve the conflict.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Thor's noble behavior and [[IKissYourHand hand kissing]] won her over.

[[folder:Darcy Lewis]]
!!''Darcy Lewis''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/darcy_lewis_thor_4608.png]]

->'''Portrayed By''': Creator/KatDennings
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/{{Thor}} | Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''

->''"I am not dying for six college credits!"''

A ''political'' scientist and intern with astrophysicists Jane Foster and Erik Selvig.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: In a similar, but more open, manner to Jane. A good example is when she's mispronouncing Mjölnir's name, calling it "Myeh-Myuh"
* BigDamnKiss: Has one of these with Ian after he saves her from dark elves by smashing them with a Convergence-affected car. Ends up dropping him when Jane sees them.
* BrainyBrunette: Like Jane she's a scientist, albeit a ''political'' one.
* BrutalHonesty: She tends to say whatever she thinks without worrying about it.
--> '''Darcy:''' ''[trying to comfort Jane about Thor having left]'' He's gonna come back. Except, you know, last time he was gone for like two years.
* CanonForeigner: She doesn't appear in the comics, only in the films.
* CombatPragmatist: She doesn't wait for Thor to finish his boast; she tases him immediately.
* DeadpanSnarker: On occassion, usually as a reaction to Jane's ForScience attitude.
--> '''Darcy:''' I am not getting stabbed in the name of science.
* DefensiveWhat: After she tazes Thor and Jane and Erik react with horror, she retaliates with: "What?! He was freaking me out!"
* ExtravertedNerd: A political science major and very outspoken and social.
* FirstNameBasis: She's only referred by her first name.
* FunPersonified: Most of her scenes have her nonchanantly doing or saying something funny.
* GeniusDitz: Doesn't get most of what Jane and Eric talk about, but she's the one to point out that primitive humans could have mistaken people like Thor for gods. She's also the one who spots the Thor-shaped silhouette in Jane's pictures of the Bifröst opening.
* {{Malaproper}}: She's completely unable to pronounce "Mjölnir."
* {{Meganekko}}: She sometimes wears glasses, which adds to her {{adorkable}} nature.
* MomentKiller: She has a habit of interrupting Jane whenever she's trying to have a romantic moment. She is perfectly aware of it and finds it quite funny.
* NotThatKindOfDoctor: ''Political'' science, not astrophysics. (She became Jane's assistant because she was the only one who applied for the job.)
* OCStandIn: Since she hasn't done much besides being PluckyComicRelief, and the movies have intentionally avoided making Kat Dennings into MsFanservice even though [[Series/TwoBrokeGirls she's known to be capable of it]], fanfic authors have considerable leeway to create backstory for her and connect her to the rest of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. (For example, her being Tony Stark's daughter is becoming a popular EpilepticTree.)
* OddFriendship: With Jane the calmer and yet also more hotblooded astrophysist
* PluckyComicRelief: From the tasing to the 'pretty cut' line, she has comedy covered.
* StaticStunGun: Tases a BroughtDownToNormal Thor.

[[folder:Ian Boothby]]
!!''Ian Boothby''
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ian_boothby_tdw_3446.png]]

->'''Portrayed By''': Jonathan Howard
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''

Darcy's intern in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''. Mostly gets dragged around with no idea of what's going on and made to carry things.
----
%%* {{Adorkable}}: Much like Darcy.
* BigDamnHeroes: Helps the other scientists set up the sensors to counter the Convergence, and saves Darcy from a troop of dark elves by smashing them with a floating car.
* BigDamnKiss: With Darcy, during the climax.
* BlatantLies: When trying to convince the receptionist at the [[spoiler:mental hospital]] that he's Eric's son.
* ButtMonkey: Gets bossed around by Darcy a lot.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He's generally just referred to as Intern. "It's ''Ian''..."
* {{Expy}}: An {{Adorkable}} English guy who gets bossed around the whole time, gets one chance to demonstrate his heroism, and wins the girl in the end? Did [[Series/DoctorWho Rory]] miss a turn and wind up with the [[TheNthDoctor wrong]] [[Creator/ChristopherEccleston Doctor?]]

* MomentKiller: She has a habit of interrupting Jane whenever she's trying to have a romantic moment. She is perfectly aware of it and finds it quite funny.
* NotThatKindOfDoctor: ''Political'' science, not astrophysics. (She became Jane's assistant because she was the only one who applied for the job.)
* OCStandIn: Since she hasn't done much besides being PluckyComicRelief, and the movies have intentionally avoided making Kat Dennings into MsFanservice even though [[Series/TwoBrokeGirls she's known to be capable of it]], fanfic authors have considerable leeway to create backstory for her and connect her to the rest of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. (For example, her being Tony Stark's daughter is becoming a popular EpilepticTree.)
* OddFriendship: With Jane the calmer and yet also more hotblooded astrophysist
* PluckyComicRelief: From the tasing to the 'pretty cut' line, she has comedy covered.
* StaticStunGun: Tases a BroughtDownToNormal Thor.

->'''Portrayed By''': Jonathan Howard
->'''Film Appearances''': ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''

Darcy's intern in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''. Mostly gets dragged around with no idea of what's going on and made to carry things.
----
%%* {{Adorkable}}: Much like Darcy.
* BigDamnHeroes: Helps the other scientists set up the sensors to counter the Convergence, and saves Darcy from a troop of dark elves by smashing them with a floating car.
* BigDamnKiss: With Darcy, during the climax.
* BlatantLies: When trying to convince the receptionist at the [[spoiler:mental hospital]] that he's Eric's son.
* ButtMonkey: Gets bossed around by Darcy a lot.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He's generally just referred to as Intern. "It's ''Ian''..."
* {{Expy}}: An {{Adorkable}} English guy who gets bossed around the whole time, gets one chance to demonstrate his heroism, and wins the girl in the end? Did [[Series/DoctorWho Rory]] miss a turn and wind up with the [[TheNthDoctor wrong]] [[Creator/ChristopherEccleston Doctor?]]
