Rehabilitating the Devil in ‘Loki: Agent of Asgard’ #1 [Review]

Untitled-1

It wasn't so long ago when no-one gave a toot about Loki. He was the most generic of Marvel villains, a scowling horn-headed heel who was evil for the sake of being evil. Marvel even turned him into a woman for a while in a desperate bid to give him a new dimension.

He's come a long way since. The old Loki would have been a terrible choice for a solo title, but in 2014 he's an obvious candidate -- a rising rockstar character with a passionate fanbase who flood the convention floors with cosplay of all his incarnations. Loki: Agent of Asgard is a book whose time has come.

MINOR SPOILERS follow.

Here’s Tom Hiddleston Cosplaying As Captain America In An Unused ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Scene [Video]

If Tumblr was a person, they'd be flipping their lid right now.

If you caught Thor: The Dark World in theaters a few months back, you know there's a scene in which Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, briefly transforms into Chris Evans' Captain America. It's a funny scene.

For filmmaking purposes we're not entirely privy to, other than maybe Hiddleston just wanted to wear a Captain America costume, the scene was originally shot with Loki's actor rather than Steve Rogers'.  So get ready, Tumblr. You're about to see some magic.

Good news for Tom Hiddleston fans: Hot Toys has announced a 1/6 scale collectible figure of Loki from Thor: The Dark World in all its Hiddleston-y glory. As usual, the likeness and clothing looks spot-on -- like it was 3D printed by Dwarven blacksmiths (that's how they do it on movie Asgard, right?). This is the second version of the character from Hot Toys following a version from The Avengers movie, which has long since been in short supply or outright sold out.

Sexy Loki, Queer Tricksters, And The Problem With LGBT Villains [Opinion]

Loki Agent of Asgard feature

Good news; Marvel is launching a new ongoing series with an LGBT lead character. Loki: Agent of Asgard debuts in February from the creative team of writer Al Ewing and artist Lee Garbett, and Ewing confirmed via Tumblr that the lead character will not only be portrayed as bisexual --but be able to change gender. Bad news; Loki is not exactly a good guy. He's a trickster, a manipulator, a supervillain. He's also the second bisexual male to get his own ongoing book at Marvel, and here's the problem; the other one was Daken, son of Wolverine, and he was also a trickster, a manipulator and a supervillain.

‘Thor: The Dark World’ Is A Good Time At The Movies (Most Of The Time) [Review]

Thor 2

If you boiled down Marvel's movies to a basic formula, the first Thor film would be a perfect example of it. It's got some decent superhero action, a lot of shoehorned-in S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff, and one huge feather in its cap: A sense of humor about itself and its characters.

Luckily, the new sequel, Thor: The Dark World, is like its predecessor in that it's not afraid to include some levity. As long as that keeps up, it's a jaunty, enjoyable flick. It's only when the movie gets capital-s Serious -- and luckily that's not too often -- that it gets into some trouble.

Tom Hiddleston Teaches Cookie Monster The Excruciating Virtues Of Delayed Gratification [Video]

Loki Cookie Monster

 

Tom Hiddleston, a.k.a. Loki in Marvel's The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World, is in a new guest spot on Sesame Street, in which he teaches Cookie Monster an ever important lesson about delayed gratification by being withholding with a plate of cookies, because showing Cookie Monster a plate of cookies and not immediately giving him one is pretty much the most Loki thing you can do. "I just made the correlation between your name and what I'm about to eat," says Hiddleston. Do not trust a word he says, Cookie Monster. He is the god of lies.
