When Thor – 77% was released, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) was taking shape, so the shortcomings of the film were not so badly received by the public. Instead, by the time Thor: A Dark World arrived – 66%, it was clear that the sequel carried defects of the first part that could not be resolved. Furthermore, although the association Warner Bros.-DC best known for all the litigation over her final cuts, this second part of the God of Thunder suffered something similar. In fact, Alan Taylor, the film’s director, was deeply disappointed in the industry as a whole.

Nobody doubts that Chris Hemsworth is perfect for Thor, like Tom Hiddleston as Loki, but the sequel could not depend solely on his on-screen chemistry, and the presence of an unhappy Natalie Portman made the situation worse. The actress had recommended Patty Jenkins for Thor, a dark world, but the production company did not want to risk such a product to a female director. Portman had no choice but to fulfill his contract and shoot the film, but his disinterest in it is almost palpable to the audience.
The good news is that Thor: Ragnarok – 92% fixed many of the issues with character development and allowed the audience to get acquainted with a Thor closer to the comics in terms of his power. Taika Waititi did such a good job that he managed to convince Portman to return for a fourth installment, making Thor the only one of the Avengers to beat the trilogy. But what exactly went wrong with the second part? On the one hand it seems that Marvel I was in a hurry to present another one of the infinity gems, but the editing problems, as well as the lack of a solid script, are also very noticeable.
For the vast majority, Thor, a dark world It is the worst installment of the franchise, beyond the millions that it may or may not generate at the global box office. To find the problem, it is necessary to analyze what was happening at that time with the plans of the UCM. A book called The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where we can find all the details about the best and worst moments of these films, including what could be.

The book details (via The Direct) the problems that occurred before, during and after the production of Thor, a dark world; specifically, Kevin Feige himself reveals the problem. It seems like shortly after filming ended, Marvel decided to bring in screenwriters Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely and Joss Whedon to create new scenes and improve some that they considered weak. Feige relates it like this:
We had purple cards, and every time a new idea came up, we put one up … and suddenly, it was a purple sea on the wall.
The producer Louis D´Esposito he estimated that the sequel would require more than a month to film the necessary reshoots. Although it is not uncommon for a movie to need reshoots, especially one of this magnitude, the time that was devoted to it is rare; new scenes usually take only a couple of weeks to shoot.
Kevin Feige considers that this stumbling block allowed everyone involved in the UCM remain humble in the face of new challenges. Although we were still far from Avengers: Infinity War – 79% y Avengers: Endgame – 95%, the characters of Marvel they were already established among the public so the money was insured. What is very positive about Thor, a dark world is that Feige and his team knew that the box office would be on their side, but that did not mean giving up the tape for lost. When the producer noticed the mistakes and the possibilities for improvement, he accepted the extra month of filming and tried to fix the story during the editing process as much as possible. It’s possible that the initial cut was even worse, but what we finally saw, and it belongs to canon, is a minor product, but one that didn’t feel like a waste of time among fans either.
