As fate would have it, Thor: The Dark World has invaded the minds of many nearly a decade after its theatrical release. With Thor: Love and Thunder splitting audiences down the middle, fans of the franchise are thinking back some of its earlier entries. Enough so, the Alan Taylor sequel found itself as a worldwide trend Sunday evening.
According to Taylor, his version of the film—the one not released by the studio—was more comparable to childlike wonder rather than the widely-panned, brooding Asgardian invasion story that was released.
"The version I had started off with had more childlike wonder; there was this imagery of children, which started the whole thing," the director told The Hollywood Reporter last year. "There was a slightly more magical quality. There was weird stuff going on back on Earth because of the convergence that allowed for some of these magical realism things. And there were major plot differences that were inverted in the cutting room and with additional photography — people [such as Loki] who had died were not dead, people who had broken up were back together again. I think I would like my version."

So curious that people are paying more attention to the masterpiece that #Thor The Dark World is. Did y’all know that the director almost ended himself because people said it was one of the worse things Marvels ever done?? That movie was ahead of its time iktr— csi reactions/thread/edits girl ✨ (@capmarvelsidle) July 11, 2022
No Flipping Here
People hated Thor: The Dark World, many consider it one of the worst MCU film to date, and now people are praising it because of their dislike of #ThorLoveAndThunder? No you can’t just flip like that lol.— Chainsaw Reacts (@ChainsawReacts) July 10, 2022

Going thru the previous Thor movies for my Love and Thunder video and while not a great movie by any means, I was reminded of this very creative bit from The Dark World, I just really dig the whole portal thing. pic.twitter.com/HOhmIL0tKh— Mauricio Kenobi | Browntable (@Browntable_Ent) July 10, 2022
