In the pantheon of great Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, Thor: The Dark World is not among them. This has been no secret to any fan of Marvel movies, as it continually ranks among the worst MCU movies. As for the star of the movie Chris Hemsworth, he is finally joining fans and admitting the movie plainly sucks.
In a recent interview with GQ, Chris Hemsworth got to talking about his most iconic roleâ€”that being the muscular Norse god Thorâ€”when he opened up and admitted the second one is not that great.
â€œThe first one [Thor] is good, the second one is meh,â€ said Hemsworth. â€œWhat masculinity was, the classic archetypeâ€”it all just starts to feel very familiar. I was so aware that we were right on the edge.â€
Actors are usually tight lipped about movies they are a part of that arenâ€™t any good. Thatâ€™s what makes Chris Hemsworthâ€™s openness about Thor: The Dark World so refreshing. It is true the movie was â€œmeh;â€ even the studio admitted so by throwing Thorâ€™s thematic style to the trash by starting brand new inÂ Thor: Ragnarok, with director Taika Waititi and explored the comedic side of the character.Â
The change paid off and Thor:Â Ragnarok is now seen as one of the best MCU movies to date.
Now that we are all on the same page that Thor:Â The Dark World sucks, we can move on to more pressing issuesÂ like what exactly what is going to happen in Avengers 4 where Thor figures to play a huge role.
