'The Prince of Egypt' and 'Thor'

Fans of the animated film “The Prince of Egypt” have spotted multiple uncanny parallels between this 1998 Dreamworks retelling of “The Book of Exodus” and the first “Thor” film. Sure, both stories center on brothers from noble families at odds with one another over their claims to the throne. But audiences have also noted similarities in dialogue between the two films as well as the first “Avengers” installment, leading some to believe the arc of Marvel's Thor character was directly inspired by “The Prince of Egypt.”
