We did not expect our favorite super-hero/action movie of 2013 to be Thor: The Dark World, and yet there it is. Iron Man 3 was not good, Man of Steel was problematic and should have been better… We have not yet seen The Wolverine, but based on the reviews and chatter, we doubt it will eclipse the son of Odin. Thor: TDW had the right blend of humor, action, and Asgardian mayhem, as well as an imminently watchable Loki and Thor dynamic and some Avengers 2 easter eggs. If you’re into the superheroes, you should check it out.
And, of course, it hath spawned another excellent ‘How it Should Have Ended’, this time featuring the Villain Pub.
