When it comes to the conversations where people discuss the best Marvel movies ever, Thor: The Dark World rarely finds itself at the top of any list. In fact, the Chris Hemsworth-starring sequel often finds itself at the bottom of most rankings. It's even one of Marvel Studios' lowest-rated movies with a 66-percent Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It's one of only two movies — the other being Edward Norton's The Incredible Hulk — to not receive the review aggregator's acclaimed "Certified Fresh" badge.
Still, some eight years after the sequel hit theaters, fans are defending it. So much so, The Dark World became a trending topic across Twitter. Thor 2 sympathizers came out of the woodwork across the social network, defending the flick for its rich storytelling and character-driven moments — especially when it comes to Hemsworth's eponymous hero and Tom Hiddleston's beloved Loki.

Thor 2 is trending and I'm going to take the moment to say The Dark World is the best in the Thor series. It gave us this Supreme Loki. Argue with your mother.

everyone tweeting thor 2 was bad: have you considered the first hr of thor 2 is absolutely wonderful & tells a rich, complex story w/strong worldbuilding & familial conflict?
that said: they absolutely forgot they had a villain and movie to finish for the last 40 minutes pic.twitter.com/rzrJ0N2XJB— lead sandworm from dune 2021 (@liesandarbor) August 24, 2021
