The Evolution of Loki

One of the most versatile characters in the MCU, maybe the most versatile, is Loki. He has gone from doting brother and son to ruthless villain and crazed traitor and back around to a mischievous troublemaker/likable hero. The story of Loki hasn’t been easy but it’s been one of the most fascinating stories to follow and now, with Avengers: Infinity War just three days away, on this final segment of The Evolution Of it’s time to look at Loki’s journey throughout the past seven years. Enjoy!

Thor (2011)

I haven’t watched Thor in a while so this section will be brief but I do remember this, Loki had a rough time in this movie. At the beginning of the film he was Odin’s second son and he loved his family but when he discovered that he was just the adopted child of the Ice Giants (I think that’s correct) he kind of went a little mad. He tried to claim the throne while Thor was hanging out on Earth as an outcast and tried to get his brother killed, both plans of which failed. At the end of the film he was presumed to be dead after a fierce fight with his brother Thor but Loki was far from done with the MCU.

What’s Next for Rey?

I know it’s still a long time before Episode IX comes out in theaters (605 days to be exact) but I’ve owned The Last Jedi over a month now, I’ve watched and analyzed the movie over a dozen times, and it’s time for the Episode IX theories to start flowing. Especially with the filming for the movie beginning this summer. So, through the next few days I’m going to provide my theories on where these characters’ stories should go next and maybe my theories will be slightly correct. Only time will tell. 🙂 Enjoy!

And Rey’s Journey Continues….

Rey has undergone an emotional and fascinating journey as she has learned about the Force, discovered that her parents were Jakku bums (I know that sounds terrible but it’s the truth,) and become the new hope for the Resistance but now where does her story take her? What could J.J Abrams pick up story wise where Rian Johnson left off? Well, I have an idea and even though it might not happen I think it sounds pretty awesome.

‘Venom’ Gets A New Trailer

When I went to watch Black Panther I saw the Venom teaser for the first time and I was totally into it. I don’t know exactly anything about Venom except that he’s the scary version of Spider-Man (I think) so this movie interests me because maybe I’ll finally be able to understand what Venom is. Yesterday the official trailer for the film dropped and I’m experiencing a range of emotions for it. Check it out.

Okay, first of all, Venom is scary, let’s just get that out-of-the-way. I mean, look at all of those nasty looking teeth. *shudder* I definitely wouldn’t want to be the one in the grip of that monster-symbiote thingy. Secondly, I’m just kind of all over the place with this trailer. On one side I’m excited and then on the other I’m kind of disappointed.

The teaser was perfect and offered enough tantalizing imagery that got me legitimately excited for the film but this trailer has taken that excitement, balled it up, thrown it out of a window, and then retrieved it at the very end of the trailer when we finally got to see Venom in all of his Venomness. That’s upsetting because the teaser was so great and this trailer is just kind of…okay. Another thing that kind of bothered me about this trailer was Tom Hardy.

Tom Hardy is an exceptional actor. In fact, he’s one of my favorite actors because of all of the diverse characters he has played and how well he has played them but this is the first role that I feel doesn’t fit him very well. I mean, I just can’t take him seriously. I think the problem is this movie isn’t good enough looking to have such an incredible actor attached to it.

I don’t know. I like the film for it’s scary alien stuff and I like that this trailer is still not really showing anything except the main villain in Riz Ahmed’s character and a quick glimpse of Venom in full form but there’s something about this movie that just is and isn’t sitting right with me. I’m sure I’ll see the full trailer when I go to watch Avengers: Infinity War this week and so that should fully determine my feelings on the trailer but as it stands this movie has not hit my excitement button.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
