Amidst all the hype surrounding Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the new trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it's easy to forget that Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) has another Marvel movie on the way, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.
Judging from initial reactions to last week's London premiere, Thor: The Dark World could enjoy a surprising run in the weeks following its Nov. 8 debut in U.S. theaters. As of this writing, roughly 87% of the critics who had seen the film rated it "fresh," according to reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
Thats a strong number, especially when you consider that Marvel's The Avengers won over 92% of critics and Iron Man 3 and the first film in the series, Thor, scored with 79% and 77% of critics, respectively, according to Rotten Tomatoes. All signs point to Disney enjoying a strong performance for the Phase 2 of Marvel movies.
Can investors expect Disney stock to rally if Thor: The Dark World outperforms expectations? Tim answers this question and more in the video. Please watch now and then leave a comment below to let us know where you stand.
