** 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 Hiddleson's popularity with the fans, and thus you don't really like a lot of the film.

* JustHereForGodzilla : A significant portion of the female demographic admitted that they only wished to see the movie to see Creator/TomHiddleston as Loki again.

* RomanticPlotTumor: Coupled with StrangledByTheRedString, the Thor/Jane subplot takes too much time, and is possibly too high in Thor's priorities and takes over the plot

* TheUntwist: Everyone, both in- and out-of-universe, expects Loki to betray Thor. And sure enough, it looks like he does...[[spoiler:except it's part of a ploy to get Malekith to draw the Aether out for Thor to destroy it. Ultimately played straight, as he fakes his death and usurps the Throne of Asgard while Thor is on Earth]].

* {{Narm}}: Many of Malekith's lines come off as this, due to being lines clearly meant for a LargeHam but are instead delivered with Christopher Eccleston's [[DullSurprise monotonous, emotionless delivery]]. For example:
-->'''Malekith''': You have taken something child. Give it back.

** Malekith is probably the MCU villain with the most negative reception due to his GenericDoomsdayVillain status. Even people who loved the movie found the character flat and forgettable.

** 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. [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic In his review of the film]], Creator/DougWalker refers to Darcy as "the [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Jar Jar Binks]] of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse."

** Malekith never manages to be anything more than a GenericDoomsdayVillain. What makes it especially painful is that he was played by Creator/ChristopherEccleston (who passed on the ''Series/DoctorWho'' 50th anniversary special for this, despite reviving the role) and he's a much more entertaining character in the comics. Most people blame Loki receiving extra focus due to his popularity for this.

*** His comments towards Thor (illusioned as Sif) and Jane after she slaps him. Is he just being a smartass when he says looks "you look ravishing" and "I like her"; or is he really an AmazonChaser? (It doesn't help that he was looking down and grinning at Jane's bod in the background after that scene).
