I’m sitting here thinking about how Tom Hiddleston had to go through the premieres and press for Ragnarok with the knowledge of what happens to Loki in IW and now I’m at a new level of Admiration for him and further Disgust with Marvel.

Haven, you took the words right out of my mouth.

I’m still here

This blog was created to escape this life, this world, with Loki, and it’s going to continue to do exactly that. I don’t accept the bullshit that Marvel just expects us all to swallow. If they think killing him off is going to kill the love and loyalty, they are totally brainless. I don’t know why they’ve fixated on bestowing upon Loki “a hero’s death” or “heroic suicide” and why being a hero only = death for Loki. The thing they can’t realize is that Loki was already a hero in our eyes.

I would rather see him be the worst villain and BE VERY MUCH ALIVE, than this. Loki was already a hero to me, for they way he endured being neglected, ignored, second best, second choice, second loved, unloved, rejected, misunderstood, cast out, abandoned, tossed aside, and thrown away over and over and over again, and still got back up, and remained standing.  He wore his biting wit and sass and mischief like second skin, wore his heartbreak like a badge of courage and weilded it like the most deadliest weapon. It made him cold, it made him viscious, it made him crazy, it made him broken, it made him hurt, it made him die and come back. It made him wonderful. It made him mine. It made him ours.

I know none of this carries any weight with Marvel. I’m just another fangirl. To them we’re just fangirls fangirling, the bane of Marvel fan existence. To others, we’re “stans” and “apologists”. Whatever tag or label people want to give it doesn’t matter to me. Because I know all of this goes right over their heads. Loki wasn’t supposed to last this long or go this far, and the fact that he did is a big, proud middle finger to Marvel and others who didn’t believe and couldn’t see that this, that Loki, was much, much bigger than Marvel, a much bigger animal than Marvel could’ve ever hoped to harness. It’s out of their hands now, it has a life of its own. And they can downplay his powers, humiliate him, degrade him, water him down to appease the masses, even kill him, but that won’t change anything here. They truly underestimate Loki love.

Here’s why Loki’s death frustrates me.

It wasn’t done to complete his character arc. I could even forgive that oversight if it was done for the sake of Thor’s, but that wasn’t what the writers were going for.

No, the reason Loki died in Infinity War was because he was the main villain in Avengers 1. He was MCU’s Big Bad back in the day. MCU has a problem with less-than-memorable villains, so they decided the best way to make Thanos memorable was to have him dispose of Loki without breaking a sweat.

That’s it. That’s the whole reason they stripped Loki of all his intellect and power. “Oh, you thought Loki was badass and super cool? Haha, check this guy out, rawwwwr.

This is child logic. This is how my two-year-old son plays with his toys.

See, my thinking is, Loki has pretty much always upstaged everyone in every movie he’s in, and TPTB didn’t want any competition for Thanos. I just get this vibe from Marvel, that instead of being glad to have him they’re tired of him. Meanwhile RDJ is literally barging into other character’s movies but that’s ok apparently.

I can buy into that theory.

Tom’s acting was also uncharacteristically flat in Ragnarok. I kept wondering if they asked him to tone it down so that he wouldn’t steal the show.

I feel as though they kind of gave Loki The Fallen Woman plot line, which is appropriate given that he’s pretty well been coded queer in the storyline. He falls from grace. He gets redeemed. But we all know that for the Fallen Woman, redemption is never enough. She must be punished, which nearly always means she dies. See Moll Flanders. See Roxanne. See Ruth. See, in fact, a huge pile of Victorian novels. See Psycho, in fact.

People whose faves are still alive or obviously resurrectable keep saying things like “the dead should stay dead, otherwise there are no stakes”? I hope you get a taste of your own medicine. See how you like the stakes then.

⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️THIS. THANK YOU. I’m so sick of seeing this. My poor heart is broken and these rude ass people have zero empathy.

Yes. And I feel bad because a part of me wants everyone else to stay dead too, because if I have to lose Loki then they should feel the same loss.

H wasn’t just some minor character dammit, to many of us he was The major character. 😦

Looking back at the original movies, 2 out of 3 main Avengers all have intact supporting casts even now. Tony has Pepper, Happy and Rodey. Steve has/will have Bucky and Sam (not counting Peggy as her aging was inevitable always). Thor has lost everyone, unnecessarily, and is having a substitute (Valkyrie) pushed into his narrative (?!?? wtf?!?).

Loki as a character is way more popular than Tony’s clique. More fledged out than Steve’s clique (not gonna open the popularity box on Bucky, nope, but Bucky has half the narrative mileage). His actor is obviously interested in keep playing him and in to way a PR nightmare as some of the others. Yet he is the one getting the short end of the stick. Makes one wonder, right?

Too. Fucking. Popular. With. Female. Audiences.

thanos: the universe has a finite amount of resources, so i’ve decided to assemble a reality altering gauntlet and use that to eliminate half of all life forms, thus ensuring the remaining life forms can live in peaceful worlds of plenty.

anyone else: why don’t you just use that gauntlet to create more resources

jokes aside w the massive success of thor ragnarok after all that dark depressing shit youd think theyd think twice about going back down that route. nobody wants to see the characters they love die, especially without purpose.  shock value deaths have always been failures; it doesnt matter how many dead memes or half assed jokes marvel throws into their movies if at the end the characters people loved and related to were all killed in various gruesome or even dismissive ways.

I read the reddit spoilers. Upset doesn’t even begin to cover it. To say that I’m angry is an understatement. I’m fucking furious! But I’m waiting for more reliable sources to confirm them. Like some websites or the people I know here. So if you saw iw please msg me.

These are both very logical (perfectly explaining some trailer scenes) and completely uninspired in a generic superhero movie way. I think they’re 100% legit.

How does reddit react to it? I’m curious to know if only our side of fandom is angry or if the movie is going to be more widely criticized.

The movie is gonna be venerated. Typical male comic fans care zilch for Loki, he’s a “fangirls fave”. They figured his death out ages ago (it was pretty obvious in trailers). The two people loudly complaining are being treated as pussies and false Marvel fans.

Oh, they are a bit pissed because apparently there isn’t enough Hulk in it, and Hawkeye is a no show.

This movie is gonna make 2 billion and Loki will be effectively forgotten because people are gonna cry about the ash-deaths of big names and be happy when the ash-deaths are reversed. Loki’s the only goddamn death that will remain the true death that cannot be undone. Good job, Marvel.

Thank you, sounds about right. (I hate this timeline)

Also probably Gamora also won’t be undone. And I predict at least in Avengers 4 some of the main old heroes will die saving new ones??

Gamora might be undone if she’s “inside” the soul stone or some bullshit. Also, she’s the lead female of the Guardians. At the very least, they’ll spend the Guardians 3 trying to revive her.

And it’s not like I can’t vote at least 3 scenarios where Loki is revived also, but I refuse to happy speculate because Marvel will 100% not go for it. They just don’t care / don’t know what to do with Loki.

Lol I feel very bad about it but I was confusing Nebula’s and Gamora’s names all day long and thought it was Nebula who is dead. Tottaly agree about Gamora now, she is the one who might and probably will be brought back (Though not gonna celebrate Nebula being alive cause Marvel can easily kill her later while she is saving her sister). Not because it’s logical in any way, but because it’s Marvel.

And it’s not like I can’t vote at least 3 scenarios where Loki is revived also, but I refuse to happy speculate because Marvel will 100% not go for it. They just don’t care / don’t know what to do with Loki.

It’s funny how I can still come up with ideas and theories how this whole mess still might be fixed in Avengers4 (how we all did it with Ragnarog in anticipation for IW, fools), but I just don’t have any trust or respect for Marvel anymore. They will go the laziest and easiest way. If there still are any overused the most irritating tropes

left at that time that you haven’t seen be prepared to see it in the next film.
