The sequel to the 2011 Thor feature film, and the 2012 Avengers team-up, Thor: The Dark World, opened wide in theaters this weekend. I just saw it and it's pretty much the Iron Man 2 of the Thor series. More action, but less consistency. In other words, if you're a fan of Marvel, Midgard, or the mighty Mjolnir, you'll have a ton of fun. If you're not up to speed on the Thor movies, or the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, or if you simply want to read the awesome, epic Walter Simonson source material from whence it was all drawn, iTunes and Amazon have you covered.
