Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Alan Taylor‘s Thor: The Dark World is the single greatest Marvel Avengers movie yet. Up until now, the first Thor held that crown high above the rest, but The Dark World manages to take everything that worked in the first installment and add to it, truly allowing the Marvel universe to grow and expand to new heights that have never been reached before. Chris Hemsworth completely embodies the character of Thor, while Tom Hiddleston continues to impress and surprise as Loki. Thor: The Dark World is a massive achievement for Marvel, proving to be a not only worthy sequel, but a great film on its own that feels new and fresh, despite Marvel clogging the cinemas with multiple films a year. Bring on the rest of Phase Two and Three."
