Thor – The Dark World

Posted November 9, 2013 : Chris Hemsworth, Review

I was expecting this movie to be good. I liked the first one a lot (with only a few qualifications) and I liked the character even more in The Avengers. So, yes, I pretty much expected The Dark World to be good. And even then, I was impressed. Because this is one of those movies that’s the ideal in the tentpole-blockbuster-extravaganza films because it’s a character movie first and all of those other things second.

Captain America first appeared in comics in 1941 and like Superman (who first appeared in 1938)
