11. Thor: The Dark World
I’m guessing that we all would have preferred to watch a full length intergalactic roadtrip between the bickering Thor and Loki than the drab, humorless film we actually got? The only moments where the film doesn’t suffer from its own stepping stone mediocrity is whenever Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is on screen, particularly when it’s focused on the demi-god brothers. A shame since it’s the first time Thor himself has felt like a real, tangible character who isn’t just the bumbling, quippy jock in the background. Far from being an downright poorly made movie as there are some gorgeous imagery (a funeral procession is a particular highlight), but maybe even more than Iron Man 2, it felt like a pit-stop on the road to better things. And it was.
