Disney+ MCU: Loki | June 11 2021 | Richard E Grant's in this

Recommended Posts



Just realized I never commented on this since early on. Finished it last weekend.

 

Overall I liked it. Not as much as WandaVision but better than Falcon & Winter Soldier. Tom Hiddelston was great, but Owen Wilson was definitely MVP. Wasn't familiar with Sophia Di Martino before so she was a very good discovery. Gugu Mbatha-Raw is always a welcome presence. Richard E. Grant's guest spot got me thinking that someone has to cast him and Hiddleston in another project as father and son soon. Excited to see Jonathan Majors playing a larger role in the universe soon.

 

Looking forward to seeing what Season 2 has in store.

Eh, it’s hard to tell for sure from the outside but I think Waldron was more of the driving creative force?

After getting over the hype of the ending, I think this is my least favorite of the 3 completed D+ shows and not particularly great overall, though it is entertaining scene-to-scene, the larger arc falls very flat. A lot of the secondary characters (Sylvie, Mobius, Kang, Ravenna, old Loki) were really strong, but the show just really fails its lead. His character arc is clunkily speedrun in the first episode and then he is put into an unconvincing and underdeveloped romance. By the end he has lost much of his unique charm and feels like any random superhero despite the energy that Hiddleston puts into the role. And then the timeline stuff was so unconvincing that it managed to break my suspension of disbelief (which normally is pretty hard to do). Out of all MCU content probably only beats Dark World and Iron Man 2 for me.
