We are on the Road to Avengers: Infinity War! We reach possibly the most troubling stop on our journey, Thor: The Dark World! We look back on the buildup to this movie including the director change from Patty Jenkins to Alan Taylor. We also recall our first reactions upon seeing the film and how it used comedy to cover up some of the shortcomings in its plot.
