Yeah, I really liked. Thought the scenes with Owen Wilson and Tom Hiddlestone were strong. Good chemistry between them and some great lines.

I am very smart.

I know

Okay


:lol:

I would have actually liked them to have done a few more DB Cooper scenes in the review of Loki's life. Him and Thor messing around with the mortals for fun. More interesting than flashing back to scene we've seen loads.


So who was the cloaked figure? This Loki? Another Loki variant? Cloaki Loki?

I'm currently watching through SHIELD season 4 in the MCU timeline and I'm enjoying the few nods to that season in the newer shows. The Hydra soap advert from WandaVision and now the robot scanner sequence from Loki :lol:

What's going on with the camera angles in Loki? It feels like I'm crawling around the ground watching the events unfold.

I really liked Loki and how it had a real, weird comic book aesthetic to it.

The clip show middle was really strawberry floating flabby though, my god. Absolutely killed the episode's pacing.

I would imagine it's another Loki variant, possibly played by Richard E. Grant, as they were announced as being in the show, but their role hasn't been revealed yet.

It's finished now so there's not much chance of any contradictions at this point. And as SHIELD dealt with multiverse towards the end it can hand wave away anything if you want it to.

There's no way Richard E Grant isn't playing an older Loki.

Grant could definitely pull off the haughty nature of an older Loki

Did the stuff with his mum happen in Thor 2? Such a gooseberry fool film and the only one in the entire MCU that I haven't watched more than once. So I'm hoping that doesn't become a major plot point as I find it hard to care about anything to do with Dark World :lol:

I found the Endgame scene with her in surprisingly touching. Shame it’s in Thor 2…well, sort of.

Thor 2 is the most important movie in the MCU

Yeah Thor 2 does actually have some key moments plot/character development wise. It's just a gooseberry fool movie around all of that!

It's an average film that's someone became a meme of being really bad when it's in fact not.

That was a cool first episode. I really got a Portal 2 vibe (when you're going through the old facilities), but I haven't actually played any Fallout games so I can't really comment...

Loved that first episode, strongest of a Marvel series to date.

Yeah it was decent, it's just not one of the best MCU films.

It watched it recently and thought it was pretty good, until Loki dies, then it takes a nose dive.

It was terrible at the time and I have no desire to see it again. I kept falling asleep all the way through, it was so poor.

Watched the first Loki, mostly enjoyed it. I like the way along with wandavision, they're not just doing mini versions of the films with the characters just what they would normally be doing, but putting them in very different places.
