In 2011 Marvel released the first Thor movie and I was a fan.┬áKenneth Branagh directed a brilliant story that, in my opinion, stands among the best of the comic book to film adaptations. Thor – The Dark World, although directed by Alan Taylor, upheld high standards. The story follows quite nicely from the first film and the Avengers. The story was rich, dialogue witty and special effects were awesome. The only criticism is that if you are a die-hard Marvel fan like myself and stick around till after the end credits the little tit-bits that followed this film were rather superfluous.
