Re: Best Marvel Studios Film To Date
As for the thread discussion, I prefer Thor to Iron Man. Iron Man had better pacing, yes. But, I feel like Tony Stark's arc as a character ends when he walks off the press conference proclaiming no more weapons. From then on, he has little change as a character. Thor didn't do that. Thor had an arc from beginning to end. Also, Loki was a superior villain to Obediah Stane. I would say Loki was my favorite comic film villain not named Joker. The romance in Iron Man was more natural, while the romance in Thor is brief. But, the actors pull it off.
It is close, but my preference is Thor.
Rating MCU films: Iron Man - 4/5, The Incredible Hulk - 4/5, Iron Man 2 - 3/5, Thor - 4.5/5, Captain America: The First Avenger - 5/5, The Avengers - 5/5, Iron Man 3 - 4/5, Thor: The Dark World - 4/5, Captain America: The Winter Soldier - 5/5, Guardians of the Galaxy - 4.5/5
