Here we are, the third installment of our favorite hero from Asgard. Marvel tried bringing Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to Earth in the first movie, doing a fish out of water style story. Didn’t really work. It was an OK movie, but not near on par with “Iron Man” or “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Then they went with more of a darker tone and kept him in a fantasy setting for “Thor: The Dark World.” That should have worked, but it failed worse than the first attempt.

So, what is Marvel to do with the God of Thunder? They team him up with Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), stay off Earth and crank up the funny to 10. Not to bury the lead, but this was by far the best Thor movie as well as the best Hulk movie from any studio. Yes, they were both great in the Avengers movies, but those were more team oriented and definitely more Iron Man than anyone else.
