Loki is one of my favorite characters in the MCU because he can be just so darn fun. He’s funny, devious, he always has a trick up his sleeve, and yet behind this mischievous facade is a man with a deep reservoir of feeling and compassion that comes into play time and time again through the MCU. By Infinity War, he had gone back to his brotherly ways and literally risked everything in his attempt to kill Thanos.
When he was choked to death by Thanos I actually got teary because I was so fond of this character and then Marvel Studios said, “Surprise! He’s not dead yet.”
Turns out Endgame brought Loki back to life, albeit in a weird way, and we will get a chance to see that in the next Marvel Disney+ series after TFATWS and The Bad Batch in Loki.
According to the latest trailer, he’s been assigned by the TVA (Time Travel Agents, I guess) to help them get the alternate realities back in line…and a whole lot of mayhem is likely going to ensue.
The trailer showed us plenty of Loki being mischievous as ever and I’m really hoping this show allows the Asgardian to be a royal, non-apologetic pain in the rear end without particularly giving him a hero streak because that would be fun to watch.
Think about it. This Loki is the one from the time of The Avengers, the version who hasn’t lost his mother yet and is still in pure villain mode. This Loki is not only the most devious but he is also the most willing to mess stuff up and I. Can’t. Wait!
Do you want Loki to stay villainous throughout the duration of the series? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
Maul was standing on the edge of a cliff. His form was hunched as his leg bled profusely. In his right hand, he clutched his double-bladed lightsaber tightly, awaiting his opponent’s next attack. His breaths were ragged as he saw her approaching; a woman cloaked in darkness with a strange sword in her hand coated with his own blood.
The scenario, which was already a little dismal, was getting worse and worse by the second. One of the Winter Soldiers was now fighting both Natasha and Sharon Carter at the same time. Sharon, in trying to help her friend after finding Natasha barely clinging to life as the Winter Soldier pinned her to the car roof choking to her death, jumped up to shoot him only to have him disarm her in the blink of an eye. It was enough of a distraction, however, for Natasha to kick him away.
Gasping for breath, Natasha slid to the ground on one knee, holding her neck and spluttering while Sharon handled the Winter Soldier as best she could. Fighting Bucky had inadvertently prepared her for this very situation and she was better prepared. It still didn’t make the fight any easier as he dodged her attacks with ease and sent punches and kicks to her body that felt like bits of her soul were being chipped away with every blow. It wasn’t long before Natasha had gained enough strength to return to the fight.
London. It was Dr. Frost’s next destination. The city that, under her control, would garner the attention of governments around the world. Countries would try to stop her. Blood would be shed. But the conclusion would find her with an easy victory.
She sat in a newly abandoned castle–it was abandoned because she had killed everyone who had once inhabited it–meditating deeply.
Her Winter Soldiers were doing whatever they did when they weren’t serving her. She didn’t know and she didn’t care.
Deep breaths she inhaled, long breaths she exhaled. She could feel the power coursing through her veins. Could taste its metallic tang in her mouth. And then she felt a presence. The unmistakable chill of Sarkras the Mindful who had come to visit her. Continue reading Captain America: Secret War (THIRTEEN)→
Sam Wilson and Sharon Carter were sitting in the hotel room garnering as much information as they could about the terrorists and the potential motives behind their European raid when the door to the room opened. Jumping to their feet with their guns drawn they were prepared to eliminate the potential intruder but, to their relief, it was only Steve Rogers. They let their guard down and then was instantly surprised as Natasha Romanoff walked into the room shortly afterward.
Sharon smiled. Sam crossed his arms. As the door closed behind Natasha she nodded at Sam.
There are lots of actors but there are only several actors that stick out to me among the pack as performers who have delivered some truly outstanding pieces of work.
These actors are: Tom Hanks, Christian Bale, Josh Brolin, Joaquin Phoenix, Russel Crowe, Heath Ledger, Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Denzel Washington, and Morgan Freeman. However, after the past few weeks and getting the chance to see James McAvoy’s performances in the X-Men films as well as Split and Glass, I have assembled him alongside the likes of these exceptional actors because, despite the fact that he’s only been nominated for a Golden Globe for the romantic drama Atonement, the man can act!
Watching him take on a role in Split that features a character who has twenty-three! different personalities within himself could’ve been a disaster. Instead, we get to see him shine as he impeccably switches characters on the drop of a dime just by changing the way he sits, the way his eyebrows crinkle, or the way his voice sounds. He ranges from stern and annoying as Dennis to kind and almost motherly as Patricia and then really goofy and naive as nine-year-old Hedwig and then absolutely terrifying as his horrific alter-ego, The Beast. And this happens all while retaining the idea that Kevin, the person the twenty-three personalities are trying to protect, lies deep within.
