    • The accompanying Blu-ray has all the old extras - Commentary, Deleted Scenes, Gag Reel, Featurettes and One Shot, but there's nothing on the 4K disc

    • Very much a Marvel production-by-committee instalment with very little of its own identity

    • A watchable Thor follow-up which may have just been treading water for the MCU, but is still enjoyable, particularly when watching it as part of Thor's own 'Trilogy'

    • Thor: The Dark World manages a stronger 2160p 2.40:1 transfer than its predecessor! Different shooting style, more practical sets, and clothing, some more refinement in Marvel's post-production procedures...
