Yeah. I just re-watched it and Winter Soldier yesterday, both were definitely improved sequels (Though the first films were also decent) Dark World in my opinion was better for the fact that it wasn't primarily set on Earth, and we got to see more of the Thor universe. Based on the title and the fact that he left at the end of Age of Ultron i'm assuming that Ragnarok will give us more of the same, again making it the film i'm looking forward to most right now.
Plus they neutered Malekith.
