Marvel fans are arguing over whether Iron Man 3 or Thor: The Dark World is the worst film in the MCU franchise.
With the coronavirus pandemic forcing many to remain indoors in an effort to slow the spread of the virus, many Marvel fans are taking this period of self-isolation to revisit the 23 features in the MCU films series. Of course, with little else to do, those fans are taking their thoughts online and have consequently revived the debate over which MCU film is the worst, with the two leading contenders seemingly being Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World.
While Iron Man 3 received acclaim from many fans upon its release in 2013, others were far less pleased with the first post-Avengers MCU film and often point to the twist involving Ben Kingsley’s The Mandarin as one of the main reasons for their disdain towards the feature. Conversely, Thor: The Dark World is more widely regarded as one of the weaker entries in the MCU, though that film also has its fair share of supporters.

IRON MAN 3 is trending because people are arguing it's the worst Marvel film and honestly, it looks like Marvel fans are a LOT less smart than I gave them credit for.
The Mandarin twist is one of the best in any Marvel film. Geeks are just mad the movie outsmarted them

reasons why iron man 3 is a god tier movie :
– an accurate representation of anxiety and ptsd
– shows how westerners are the real face of terrorism and middle east wars (iron man 1 did that as well)
– IT HAS IM BLUE DABEDIDABEDA AS AN INTRO
– it’s just an amazing movie shut up

Thor 2 is trending and I don't care if you all think that this movie is a mess or not. I'm pretty sure we can all agree that Tom Hiddleston was top notch in this film and that Loki's few scenes basically saved the whole thing from flopping entirely. pic.twitter.com/svLVzC8gXG

Here's the thing…even though Thor 2 is the worst MCU film, it's still fun and watchable. That's saying a lot about the quality of the MCU.
