One thing I did hear from a couple of critics is that while they do think it's filled with many items MCU fans will love, it does lack some action sequences through two episodes. Hopefully, that will pick up as the series goes on.

I kinda hope it doesn't. Yea you need some action, but I really liked the fact that WandaVision didn't fall into the "Must have a big battle each episode" trap that F&WS did. Hell, I wouldn't mind Tom Hiddleston just sitting in a chair reading comics to me.

Without the character buildup, the action means absolutely nothing. <glares at DC, yet again>

Action scenes are fun and all, but honestly, Loki isn't about the big action stuff. Sure he can do it, but the character is about machinations, not massacre. At least that's the character that I want to see.
 
2021-06-06 3:12:03 PM  
According to the Loki Fan in the household: It has Tom Hiddleston. Period. Any other gratuitous nude scenes from Mouse Plus is a bonus.

Of all the Disney+ shows that were announced, this is the one I've been looking forward to the most. I enjoyed WandaVision a lot more than I expected to from the trailers. The Falcon & the Winter Soldier had some issues, but I still enjoyed it. (I think part of the reason it had some problems is they has to chop it apart, rewrite, re-shoot, and re-edit major parts of it. All indications are there was a major virus/vaccine plot that was removed because of the pandemic... for obvious reasons.)

To me, Loki is almost like the MCU's Q. (Star Trek Q, not "I'm a gullible right wing idiot" Q.) He's smug and does horrible things, but the actor playing him does such a great job with the character, you like him anyway.
 
2021-06-06 3:26:34 PM  
They don't need non stop action, they are building ba world and a lot of what has gone on in these shows will help with the movies. So they won't have to spend time trying to fill in the backstory.

Read Superman stories with Doomsday in them the other day and have been low-key angry about the complete and total waste DC decided to go with for the character. Doomsday is a farking closer, not an opener, you morons. Goddamn pinheads. Establish your heroes. Have random heroes flying and zipping around in the background.

THEN do Doomsday. For a whole movie. Hell, you can probably do a pretty good four hour movie of just Doomsday versus every hero and villain established to that point. Killing, maiming, and destruction. And no goddamn farking stupid-ass kryptonite Bat-spear, for fark's sake.

Also, get rid of Amy Adams. I know it's super cheap using the studio actor-bot, but she's cold and lifeless and Lois Lane is supposed to be a badass that takes down Lex Luthor repeatedly without being an overpowered god-alien.
 
2021-06-06 3:34:16 PM  
AND another thing, the real Martian Manhunter showed up for Doomsday and didn't puss out entirely, then only showed up dressed as an old woman for an invasion from Apokolips (oh but NEXT time yah mo be there fo'sho). And he was possessed by a motherfarking cursed African gem that made a Martian think he was a black man at the time and STILL threw down!

FTA: "The first critics reactions to the third Marvel Studios produced series Loki are in. At 12 PM ET today, the embargo was lifted for writers who were able to watch the first two episodes in advance."

Reviews from people who are given early access to the first episodes are just adverts. There is zero chance that these people will give bad reviews, because if they do they won't be given early access next time.

I'll wait for reviews from people who paid to watch not those who were paid to watch.

Came here to say this. I was so bored with the movie-style ultra long action scene at the beginning of F&WS...

It'll be a huge relief if this series can focus on character work. I don't wantto see Loki in a bunch of action sequences, I want to see Loki being Loki.
 
2021-06-06 4:32:12 PM  
What is the premise/purpose for this series? Like, I was big on WandaVision because it was about two characters that could potentially have a huge impact on the MCU and had a lot of stuff unresolved. I didn't care much about Falcon and the Winter Soldier much because it didn't seem all that huge in comparison. So what is Loki aiming to do?

The older I get the more tedious the action sequences get. Generally you have a feel for the general outcome so for instance you know the bad guy has to get away at a certain point in a show.

They are setting up for the multiverse aspects of the next phase of MCU movies. Loki fixing (or not) the various timelines obviously will play into that.
 
2021-06-06 4:36:35 PM  
Its a TV show, its going to have a repetitive thing and you're going to expect that, and its not real and afterwards you'll look at the internet to find people who seem to care enough that it felt worthwhile to watch. Oh the plot will just be about some aliens that look human interactions with a not real authority called TimeSpaceSomethings.

I agree 100%. Lois was wasted in BvS. Her whole investigation was pointless, it added up to nothing. It would have been so much better if she'd been the one uncovering the truth behind Lex's plan, and instead of "MARTHA!", it her stepping in and saying, "You're both being played! I have proof!" Then they stop fighting and turn on Lex.

Hell, pair her up with Wonder Woman. WW is investigating something independently (NOT the photo) and their paths cross. They team up, Lois leading them to doors and WW knocking them down.

Alas, what could have been.

The planned idiocy with her getting knocked up with Batman's baby and preventing her death being the key to preventing the dark future on top of that. Just reduced her to a McGuffin. Snyder should stick to straight to Netflix. He's still shiat at it, but it's best to confine his derpiness to one platform.

Anyway, so I'm not threadjacking with all my DC mentions. I'm sure this will be a good to great show because Marvel knows what they are doing, has standards and quality control, and gives more than a brief moment on the shiatter's thought to things like plot.

I'm hoping I won't be too disconnected as the only marvel movies I've watched have been Deadpool and Logan (and from what I understand those aren't "MCU"?). I'm very interested and I read a shiat load of marvel comics when I was younger but I don't feel like watching a shiat load of movies just to "get it". Here's to hoping, or something.

Wait, what? I just finished the Snyder cut JL this weekend (I haven't seen the original). If it's spoilerific, I guess I can go wiki it, I just don't recollect any baby.

With regard to Loki, I'm definitely intrigued. This isn't Avengers: Infinity War Loki, who's learned a lot, come full circle, dealt with loss, pain, etc, and confronted Thanos, this is Avengers Loki who just failed to take over Earth. I'm not sure which one would be more interesting to watch.

Marvel's done a pretty good job, even with TV which used to not be their forte, so yeah, gimme what you got.

That was Snyder's plan for his continued take on the DC Universe which spanned at least two more Justice League movies (and the individual team member movies/sequels). As replacementcool mentioned there's a shot of a pregnancy test in her apartment during the SnyderCut. Named Force Majeur. Ugh. It's probably for the best WB stepped in and put a stop to all that, but I don't know why they let it get that far in the first place.

I do recollect the test and its name (which is seriously gross for a pregnancy test, especially if it were in the real world), I just didn't think it was confirmed and if it were, would have assumed it was Superman's, not Batman, which puts us in the Injustice timeline (which fits with the future vision).

While I love Loki I feel he has been short changed in the god of mischief category. Like Batman is being short changed as the worlds greatest detective.
I understand Batman is in a 2 hour movie they need to move it along.
However Loki now has long form story telling, let's see Loki be super clever and an agent of chaos.

This was in one of the reviews tweets: The first 2 eps of #Loki are catnip for Marvel fans. Dense on world-building, callbacks & mystery.
