* MagnificentBastard: Loki, now more than ever. He outsmarts Malekith twice, as well as [[spoiler: Thor himself]], gets to be the one to [[Awesome/ThorTheDarkWorld bring down Kurse as he's pummeling Thor to death]] and ultimately [[spoiler: outsmarts Odin to sit on his throne]].

** Excluding [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk Betty Ross]], Jane Foster possibly has the least amount of fans for a heroic female character in the MCU for her [[StrangledByTheRedString unbelievable]] romance with Thor that [[RomanticPlotTumor brought down the story]] and negatively affects the quality of the film, and also flattened her own character, keeping her entertainingly pathological obsession with her research from the last movie to a minimum in favor of her relationship drama. The fact that a lot of other interesting characters and plot points from the comic was [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter short-changed]] in exchange for her did ''not'' help. Also not helping her cause is that, to some fans, Jane is simply not that interesting as a character, particularly in this movie. As said above, this ''could'' have been completely avoided by giving her love of science an emphasis, but Selvigg is given nearly all of the scientific importance instead, leaving Jane with almost nothing. Even Natalie Portman herself [[CreatorBacklash wasn't happy]] with her character's portrayal in the film and actually considered departing after Patty Jenkins' departure as director, hence why she doesn't reprise her role in ''Film/ThorRagnarok''.

** Darcy's new intern/boyfriend gets some of this as well due to being rather flat, and even Darcy herself for those that don't consider her an EnsembleDarkhorse.

* VindicatedByHistory: While the film received criticism for a great deal of reasons, some valid, many reviewers were highly critical of some of the more comedic moments, particularly with Jane's research team, with many seeing them as comic relief of limited necessity to the plot. The film was followed by ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', which was widely praised for its much more comedic and light-hearted tone compared to this film. The film itself isn't vindicated, but one aspect was, at least.

** Part of the movie is filmed on the campus of The Old Royal Navy College, where part of a very different [[Film/TheAvengers1998 Avengers movie]] was filmed.

Added DiffLines:

** Thor's plan, which involves [[spoiler:allowing Loki to pretend to stab him]] becomes funny after ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', which reveals that [[spoiler:Loki has been stabbing Thor as a prank since they were eight.]]

** The focus on Thor/Jane and Loki over Malekith and Asgard as a whole- either you ship the pairing and/or love Loki so this film's great for you, or you don't like the two (see below for reasons) and you think Loki's only being shoehorned in because of Hiddleston's popularity with the fans, and thus you don't really like a lot of the film.

* MoralEventHorizon: Malekith has multiple moments which could be considered candidates.

** After threatening to "pay her a visit" in ''Thor'', Loki finally meets Jane. It goes about as well as expected at first - she slaps him for New York, and [[{{Troll}} he says he likes her]]. But by the end of the film, he shields her from harm with his own body. Twice.

** Jane when affected by the Aether (Giving her BlackEyesOfEvil and, in one case, black eyes and blue pupils) looks ''wrong''. Thank God we never see them in a close up or in detail.

* NightmareFuel: The black hole grenades. The screams of agony, the horrifying cracking noises and what they imply definitely paints a gruesome picture. [[spoiler:The one that eventually kills Kurse is particularly slow and gruesome and at one point you can see it ''[[EyeScream dragging his eyeballs out of their sockets!]]'']]

*** [[spoiler:Usurping the throne. Did he merely use his presumed death to his advantage to catch Odin off-guard; or did he manipulate everyone from Kurse to Thor in a plot to usurp the throne, intentionally setting up Frigga's death knowing Thor and Odin would react to it in the way that they did? Or was it somewhere in between: did he manipulate events expecting it would be ''Odin'' who died defending the Aether rather than Frigga, but still go through with his planned usurpation once she was avenged?]]
