Re: Is Thor the best Marvel Studios movie so far?
My favorite Marvel movie at the moment is Avengers. But if we're going solo, then I'd still give the trophy to Iron man. Thor comes in at a close second.
For the most part all the marvel stand alone films have been good. But they've also been quite safe. Iron Man and Thor were the only two that took small risks. Iron Man with casting an actor that was older in a genre dominated by younger men, and basically being okay with letting him put his own quirky spin on the character. Thor for actually starting to get in-depth with a more sympathetic villain.
However, I'd like to see the next phase of Marvel films push the envelope. I want to see them take a few more risks. just from a storytelling aspect.
