The second Marvel film based on the Norse comic book character Thor was released 5 years ago today on November 8th, 2013. Thor: The Dark World starred Chris Hemsworth as the main title character, Tom Hiddleston as his evil brother Loki, Anthony Hopkins as King Odin and Natalie Portman as the earth bound love interest.
Honestly, the thought of a quality Thor movie before the first of these productions came out was that it would be a disaster; pure cheese and most likely a massive failure. Instead, Marvel Studios have actually produced three quality stand alone films for Thor to date, all of which have been pretty darn good. We look forward to another Thor appearance in the next Avengers film in May 2019.
