"Loki: Brother of Thor" fan edit

Some guy edited all of the Loki scenes from Thor, The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World into a single narrative that follows the character of Loki through all three movies.

The insertion of all of Tom Hiddleston' deleted scenes (and even a few brief clips of his audtion tape) are enough to make it fresh enough to not feel like a total rehash.

The creator of the edit had this to say...

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. ...

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.
I don't agree with all of his choices (eliminating the Destroyer battle eliminates Thor's plea to Loki about sparing the others and eliminating the "Avengers bicker" scene undermines how completely he was playing them) and some of the cuts are rather choppy. Also, I would have kept the Chris Evans cameo over seing Hiddleston in the Cap suit. The insertion of the other deleted scenes were a nice addition. Very entertaining overall.
