Marvel Superfan Creates 2-Hour Movie From All of Tom Hiddleston's Loki Footage
From Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man to Chris Evans' Captain America, Marvel's Cinematic Universe has created a whole new generation of movie superstars. Arguably the most popular of these new Marvel household names has been Loki, the brother of Thor, played by British charmer Tom Hiddleston. Hiddleston's charismatic portrayal of the mischievous Asgardian has seen him become a cult figure among the burgeoning legions of Marvel fans. Now, as testament to this popularity, one fan has cut together some of Loki's greatest moments to create a 2 hour Loki feature film.
Remarkably, this Loki supercut holds together as a pretty solid origin story for what must surely be one of the most malevolent characters to grace our screens in years....and that's exactly what the movie's creator wanted to do. Here's how they describe their vision:
"My goal was to chronicle the character development of Loki into a single narrative. You'll notice I took out a lot fluff and even some beloved fight scenes, only because I was trying to focus the film on Loki and his relationships. I also inserted all of the relevant deleted scenes (you'll notice that they haven't been fully rendered and mixed), several of which add great depth to his story and family dynamics. A big challenge was bridging the end of Thor and the beginning of The Avengers, explaining Loki's exile and involvement with the Tesseract *before* he portals to earth. I created a montage to kinda show all that, even pulling a clip from Guardians of the Galaxy.
There are a few creative liberties I took with my edits that change intent/plot. Noticeably absent are Thor's and Iron Man's character arcs. My goal wasn't to sully these films and their characters, but rather offer a different interpretation that celebrates Loki....so no offense intended.
The opening scene of my edit is a flash forward to a contemplative, imprisoned Loki, spliced with footage from Tom Hiddleston's screen test when he auditioned for Thor's character, aptly capturing Loki's jealousy (the duality between them is really the meat of this film, hence the title Loki: Brother of Thor). Then there's a bit of a scary awakening from the character that *probably* haunts Loki's dreams.
Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy, you mewling quim."
