Why Thor: The Dark World Is Far from the MCU's Worst Film

Thor The Dark World

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the most successful film franchises of the 21st Century, and it has changed the industry in many ways. Rival studios have been trying to replicate the interconnected storytelling model that the MCU perfected for years, but few projects since have matched the success of what Marvel Studios perfected with even the first The Avengers film in 2012. It was the essential crossover film that spawned Marvel’s second phase, which included a continuation into the Thor franchise. Directed by Alan Taylor, Thor: The Dark World featured Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman reprising their roles as Thor and Jane Foster, respectively.
