Re: Which film is better? Thor or Thor: the Dark World?
When a film is new, it normally gets all the votes. I think some votes would swing toward Thor now that TDW has been out for a while. But, I can see why TDW might be enjoyed more than Thor by many. For me, I think they're stronger than the other in different areas. I would lean toward Thor solely due to Loki's arc in the 1st film. That breaks what is otherwise a tie for me. TDW is more visually stunning and looks more professional, but Thor has stronger story arcs. TDW gives you a mid-credits scene that hints at a great possibility for the MCU moving forward. Thor did as well, but the Infinity Stones angle induced more of a fanboy reaction from me.
Different strokes for different folks. I can see both sides on this one.
