Thor: The Dark World | A Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch

The Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch is here! Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@KevMahadeo) have launched “Everything is Super,” a new superhero and comic book focused podcast on Post Show Recaps, beginning with a full deep dive into the MCU.

For the next several weeks, Josh and Kevin will focus on a different film from the MCU, in release order. Up next: Thor: The Dark World, the very worst Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to date. At least that’s what they say! Are the rumors true? Does Thor: The Dark World suck as badly as everyone says, or is it closer to okay? This is the central debate on the podcast as Josh and Kevin take a hammer to the Thor sequel.

Coming next: Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Send your feedback for the recap by no later than June 8 by e-mailing [email protected]postshowrecaps.com.
