In honour of today’s Loki episode I wanna show you this great fanmade poster which is, sorry, SO MUCH BETTER than the extremely bland official one.
Hm… A lot of this feels like setup for the upcoming Multiverse stuff (which I have increasingly mixed feelings about) more than anything else. Also man, it’s really pushed the MCU over into “needlessly convoluted and complicated” territory now, which I was always hoping they might be able to avoid for… well, a few more years at least.
I appreciate that Frigga (or well, her ghost) plays a large role here, and it amuses me no end that the much-maligned but actually totally one of my favourites Thor: The Dark World continues to be one of the most important films in the entire MCU.
One little throwaway line here, “You’re that criminal with the blue box!” strikes me as possibly being a nod to Doctor Who, but I could be wrong.
I enjoyed the D.B. Cooper bit more than I thought I was going to, but there is still only one D.B. Cooper conspiracy theory for me.
(Not sure if I’m gonna “review” this show every week, life is super busy, we’ll see.)
On this day last year, Avengers: Endgame came out. I saw it in a theater with a bunch of other cheering fans, a situation I’ve never really been in before, and it was so much fun.
Loki got the biggest cheer of all (there was one group of dudes who seemed to be big Loki fans), I cheered for Gamora because heck if Loki’s getting a cheer she gets one too, everyone went nuts when Cap caught the hammer, when the Black Panther crew appeared and at “Assemble!”
I know not everyone likes cheering in a cinema, but it was really honestly quite electrifying for me.
Eeeek! Exciting stuff! I wonder what the brief flicker of Scarlet Witch’s comic book costume is all about.
Trailers for Black Widow and the new Disney+ Marvel shows were highlights of the trailers at this year’s Super Bowl.
At some point we all have to choose, notes Scarlet Johannsen’s Natasha in the Black Widow trailer.
And there’s the first proper glimpse of the Falcon and Bucky in action, a new take on the Scarlet Witch and Vision – and a vengeful Loki in the Disney+ trailer

Have people realized that after Loki says “Odin’s son” and looks at Thor teary eyed then drops his gaze and says “swear to you my undying fidelity”, he’s actually saying that to Thor? It was around the same moment the knife appeared in his hand. He decided he was dying for his brother then, and he wanted to settle all the history between them and he wanted him to know he was loyal to him until his dying breath. The look in Thor’s eyes shows that he understood what it means and he’s so goddamn scared. It fucks me up.
