But he keeps on scheming, lying to Thor and whatever he did to Odin.

So any redeemable qualities are gone now. By the end of the film, he turned into a pure bad guy.
Well, he IS the god of trickery and deceit. And, I mean, was he really supposed to be "redeemed"? He's pretty much Thor's arch-nemesis and they're supposed to be constantly at one another's throats.

Reminder: we know when the switcheroo happened...but not how and why yet.

No guarantees that he did any dirt to Odin to get this gig exist that I know of. And production executives can lie at any point about any plot detail.

I was told that the scout guy who said "Loki's dead" to Odin was most probably Loki.

I figured that right from the start. He was using that green glow thing Loki used before, so I figured he was Loki in disguise.

I figured that since Loki used that same "disguise" when walking with Thor talking about disguises. (The CA cameo.)

Re: THOR: THE DARK WORLD - Grading & Discussion

Man one of these days, one of these Marvel movies really needs to have a good and memorable story. It really depresses me to watch these movies and compare them to Spider-Man 2, X-Men 2, Dark Knight, Begins.... Not that I think those ad the greatest movies ever, but at least they aspire to be something a little more substantial. Marvel movies are fun, but oh so empty.

Fun character interactions, Thor and Loki together is always gold. But what a forgettable villain and story.

I think my favorite part for "over the topness" was Heimadall stabbing a space cruiser to death with a big knife.
Overall I enjoyed it a lot though.

Re: THOR: THE DARK WORLD - Grading & Discussion

After my friend and i had finished watching this at the cinema i turned to her and said 'What do you think happened to Odin?'. Her response was 'Maybe he's in the bathroom'. I laughed so much i think that i scared the people in the row behind who like us were waiting to see the end credit scenes.

If Anthony Hopkins isn't back for the next film, they could kill him off? I'm sure I'd read somewhere he'd had enough.

Well, it's pretty apparent from the interview in question. But I still can't see how Loki could rule except as disguised as Odin, which would require Anthony Hopkins or a recast.

Betting that Heimdall's knife was made of the same stuff as Mjolnir.

Or just set the next film past the point where Loki's been found out, in which case he'd want to be disguised as anyone other than Odin.

I guess they could do it Quantum Leap style, showing the real/non-visible Loki most of the time and only giving us some (perhaps CG) renderings of the visible Odin disguise in brief shots here and there, but I do hope they coax Hopkins back, if only for a few scenes.
