And now we enter the Dark World. Thor: The Dark World that is! This sequel is sort of widely regarded as being one of the lesser MCU movies. But honestly every time we rewatch it we like it more and more. If you go by the saying “a story is only as good as its villain” then yeah, this one is a little rough. But otherwise there’s a lot of high points. In particular, this is some of the best Loki stuff we get. And as this rewatch was specifically for him, we love all his stuff.
There’s a lot of other stuff to like in here, and you don’t really have to look all that hard. Sure, Ragnarok set a new bar and almost rebooted Thor overall, but that doesn’t mean there’s not good stuff to be found in Thor: the Dark World.
So what do you think of this one? Are you a Dark World apologist or are you happy to just hang it up as one of the ones we don’t talk about? Let us know over on Twitter or in the Youtube comments! Of course, we know Loki is premiering tomorrow and we haven’t gotten through his whole arc yet, but we’ll be back with Ragnarok on Friday. And technically I think the Loki in the show is the one who escapes in Endgame, but just after his capture in The Avengers. So we sort of HAVE covered all the story elements we need up til now. Who knows! For now though, settle in for today’s Arthur-fist fueled episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
