While we're at it, the amount of comic relief in general was too much and was poorly placed within scenes. Why even hire Alan Taylor if the film was going to be more lighthearted than the first?
Again, 100% agreed. Only thing I don't agree with is that Darcy wasn't necessary at all in Thor 1. All the fish-out-of-the-water situations in the first movie with Thor were enough.
If at least they had come out with something really good for Darcy to say. But in a world with The Simpsons, South Park or Seinfeld, coming up with mispronouncing "Mjolnir" is just poor. And extremely so.
