I’m dead meat, I’m dead meat, I’m sooo much dead meat right now… 

Those are the words that ran through my mind over and over and over as I waited for that bloody message to open (because typically, my internet decides to shit itself in the midst of an important task. Like, finding out whether I’ll have time to bid goodbye to my loved ones before the wolves come snapping at my heels.)

But… there’s affection amid all of this yelling.. right? It’s affectionate yelling, isn’t it? Come on, nod with me here!

Because darn it, do you know how long it took me to churn out that long waffling protest? I had this sliver of opportunity to drive from one side of Auckland to another before finding myself trapped in gridlock traffic* and a and I babbled for so long that I totally missed it!

wedged between a frosty highlighted wannabe in a crappy Honda convertible (wtf?) and a ‘87 Mazda Familiar with the kind of emissions that threaten the stability of time-space itself. I might add.

Oh, my Nessie chérie, I only yell after people I love. The bigger the bellow, the deeper my adoration—if it’s any consolation, I’ve been coughing, like, a lot since then, I suspect guilt-induced psychosomatic sore throat.

Besides, those wolves are good for nothing. The Shades keep feeding them beef and dog treats and they wouldn’t see the point of running after prey if prey had a gigantic EAT ME sign pinned to its cowardly arse, or possibly an ILOKI sign, I have my standards, so that I have to run after my enemy myself. With a book in hand.

Snort. If only I really was able to terrorise all fangirls, I’d be Queen of Tumblr instead of Helheim and Niflheim, for egomaniacs with delusions of grandeur are like catnip to people around here.

Still, you merited the awfully-long minute of silence—I was busy phoning the Sécurité Sociale, which was under the fleeting impression that I was not insurable anymore—imposed upon you, because LOKI FANGIRLS, damn, woman, you should have hanged a FUCK YOU I STILL LOVE OTHER CHARACTERS sign or something.

We really need those virtual wolf traps we’ve been concerting about.

Oh go on you, you revel in the chaos. :D

Hey… I’m going to find someone with a knack for screen-printing and have them make me a t-shirt. FUCK YOU I STILL LOVE OTHER CHARACTERS in all-caps has a catchy ring to it.

But I’m not really sure what you mean about ‘other characters’? I just did a back-to-back marathon of every single movie and spin-off series within the MCU to date, and I’m pretty certain there was only ONE character in all of them, and that was the mischievous Loki?

Unpopular Opinion: The next Thor movie need to actually focus on its title character and not be a vehicle for pandering to the Loki fangirls.

No, but, in any case, pandering is bad for your health. There should be a clear distinction between winking at your fans and crawling at their feet in abject submission, which is mere commercial opportunism and cannot make a good movie on its own. Know your audience, yes, film what is essentially box-ticking the laundry list of a vapid airhead’s wettest dream, not in a million years.

Attention, I didn’t say that being a fangirl makes you the lovechild of Becky Rosen and a leg-humping poodle, plus there has to be a fanboy somewhere on Tumblr who really fancies Loki, however lonely his poor existence may seem—only that more often than not, audiences are just as dumb as the producers make them, because it’s all a vicious circle of supply and demand, and you won’t get a cleverer public by feeding them only what they ask for. Sometimes, you must be mean and make them cry.

Thor is a great character, with surprising depth and abysmal reservoirs of charm, not at all a simple man and laughably not a simpleton, he deserves so much more than what the bloody Loki fangirls screenwriters give him!

It’s unfortunate, too, that the swerve toward Loki in TDW also decimated screentime and thus characterization for Malekith, who could have been such a better villain!

The only scene of surreptitious King Loki in Thor 3 features him bored out his mind from paperwork and political minutiae, thus leaving plenty of time for other characters and worldbuilding.

I actually think we didn’t get enough Loki, you know. Not enough, as in, a bit at the beginning, then completely forgotten for a whole act, and then finally pulled out of a sleeve for five minutes till rushed fake-death. Puh-lease. If you include such an important character in the story, you make use of it.

The screenwriters skipped a wonderful occasion to be clever and make a parallel between Loki’s less-than-brilliant start in his career as a conqueror and Bor’s past exactions. Amongst other things. Anything would have been more sensible than what we’ve got.

Malekith had basically no screentime at all, before the great duel, when we devoted several long minutes to Richard, Jane’s date whose only purpose is to receive a phone call later in the movie, a role that Darcy could have played easily, by the way. If, unlike popular belief, all villains need not very complicated or very emotional motives to act villainously, they still need to be established as characters in their own right. Fanatics and dictators are not exceedingly sympathetic, but they have to be charismatic and potent, which makes them fascinating and frightening; Malekith sacrificed his own family, his entire world, out of desperation and pride because he couldn’t share the universe—if that’s not a little interesting to you, you have to be pretty lacking in brains. If you hired Christopher Eccleston for the part and neglect to make use of him, that’s pretty despairing, if not outrageous.

Also, WORLDBUILDING?!!??

Oh. Interesting to see the Anon was happy to diss Loki fangirls but couldn’t muster the courage to do so while signed in.

I’m so tired of people shaming Loki fangirls, as if we’re all the vermin of the MCU fandom. Hey, we’re not all 14 years old and running around with ruptured ovaries - or whatever the hated Loki fangirl stereotype is…

Anyway, I agree Malekith needed more screentime and Thor 2 has a world of flaws, but I find it frustrating when people complain that Thor 2 ‘pandered to the Loki fangirls’ as if his scenes were the sole cause of Thor 2’s problems. 

Hey, why couldn’t they have just come up with a story that focused more on the nine realms and less on Earth? Did the final battle really have to take place on Earth? If anything there was far too much Erik, Darcy and Ian (aka comic relief.) Urgh.

Let’s not forget that in the first Thor film - well before anyone ever could have anticipated Tom Hiddleston’s Loki to be so popular - the trickster had a lot of screen time. Of course you can argue that it was necessary then, because he was the villain of the movie and it made sense for the first Thor film to be as much Loki’s origin story as Thor’s.

But let’s face it, the overall dynamics of the Asgardian royals was a strong drawcard for many people. To suddenly break away from that kind of character development in Thor 2 simply for fear of ‘pandering to the fangirls’ would have been out of continuity with what was established in the first Thor film.

Most of Loki’s scenes weren’t just of Loki - they were scenes that involved other characters, and by including them in the movie they enriched the development of all who were involved in the scene. 

The scene between Loki and Odin was a crucial piece of closure left-over from the first Thor film. It gave continuity between the two and without it, we all would have complained at the lack of confrontation and reprimand between Odin and Loki. Like it or not, the dynamics between Loki and Odin were an important bit of character development in the first film - well before Loki became a popular icon for combusting ovaries and the likes.

Should they have done away with the scene between Frigga and Loki? No, this was the driving force behind Loki’s motives for assisting Thor. It was an important scene for Frigga and again, it followed on the continuity fro the first film. Overall it added emotional impact to the story.

The shots of Loki bored/reading/curious/etc in his cell while Kurse and the Maurauders escape? Perhaps these scenes weren’t necessary to the overall plot, but they weren’t lengthy enough to take anything away from Malekith’s scenes and they hardly stole the movie away from Thor.

The moment when the guard informed Loki of Frigga’s death? Perhaps they could have removed this? We could have just… figured for ourselves that someone told Loki, right?

 But again, when an overall theme of the movie is of two estranged brothers uniting in order to reap revenge for the murder of their mother - we kind of needed this reaction scene.  And if you add together the length of this scene with the above mentioned scenes of Loki bored in his cell, it’s hardly enough time to detract from anyone else’s screentime.

So Loki showing off his new powers of illusion as they make their escape. Perhaps that was pandering to the fangirls? Or perhaps that was giving us some foreshadowing so that it made sense when Thor later came up with the plan to use those same abilities to trick Malekith? That in itself was a nice bit of character development for Thor too, btw. And at least it was acknowledged that Thor was the one to hatch that plan. Even if it did fail. (Not his fault - the history books could have mentioned the Aether couldn’t be destroyed.)

Should they have chopped the scenes where every man, woman and donkey threatens Loki? I mean geeze, such focus on Loki!  But to do so would have also removed screentime for Sif and the W3. Besides, wouldn’t you expect them to demonstrate the depth of their loyalty and love for Thor by threatening someone who had so betrayed them in the past? Wouldn’t it have been kind of odd to not let them have a few stern words with him?

The Star Wars style escape scene upon the Harrow Ship. The heart to heart on the skiff. The fight with Malekith. Loki’s death. All of the parts Loki played in these scenes were an essential part of the story. 

Bringing him back at the end? Whether or not that was a case of fangirl pandering is debatable. I’m willing to bet that even if they had kept Loki genuinely dead, they would have found a way to resurrect him for Thor 3. Especially if the heavily-speculated Ragnarok is to be it’s theme. 

Maybe revealing him on the throne was a case of pandering to the fangirls, or maybe they wanted to end on a cliff-hanger and Loki’s reveal seemed the most logical way to do it.

If so, that’s the only bit of fangirl pandering I can really see in this. The rest of Loki’s scenes seemed pretty essential to the story.

And really, maybe people should complain less about Loki’s scenes, and wonder why they didn’t just keep Malekith’s scenes and increase the movie’s running time..

Let’s look at some of the running times of a few  MCU films.  

112 min - Thor 2
115 min - Thor
125 min - IM2
130 min - IM3
136 min - Cap2
143 min - Avengers
122 min - GotG

Thor 2 had the shortest running time. Cap 2 had an additional 24 minutes on Thor 2 - imagine what that could have done for adding depth to Malekith’s story and Thor’s own character development!

The character development in Thor 2 fell short because of an unnecessarily short run time and general crappy editing, not because of Loki’s screen time

It’s like Tom Hiddleston aged drastically for The Avengers and then bathed in the fountain of youth for Thor 2. Even if we don’t take the travelling hairline into account.

Okay thanks to a dirty smear on my screen (and my mind, so it seems),  I thought for a moment this said “You should have let me ride you when you had the chance.” And. Um. Okay then.

OH, fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember when Marvel released the still from this scene and we all sat around trying to puzzle out what Loki was up to in this moment?
Was he experiencing a moment of remorse? Was he about to betray Thor? Was he about to be impaled through the chest and flung to the ground like a rag doll? No wait. We didn’t expect that one. 
Goddamnit  Marvel.
