Of course you can call that stumbling upon something in one sense, but not in the meaning that it's completely random (which has been argued in the thread(s)).
Well see my problem doesn't lie with the fact that she is investigating these anomalies and portals. As you point out it make sense that she is investigating such things. It just feels very convenient that this portal leads to the Aether of all the places in the nine worlds. The chances of something like that happening are minuscule.
But it didn't really bother me. After all, this is a movie about viking gods running around with laser swords battling against evil elves hellbent on destroying the universe.
