Thoughts, Theories, & Trivia For Thor:The Dark World

The review can be found here. Also, Loki overload alert!

Please don't make this worse.
Define worse.
-He has a point there.




  • I heard it noted Loki referring to himself as Loki of Jotunheim was out of character. Or maybe he's denying connection to Odin as he did to the Frost Giants in the first film.



It's not that I don't love our little talks, it's just, I don't love them.
-He sure has gotten snarky.


    • This is the first film in this series in which Heimdall smiles and also the first where he removes his helmet.



    Return to your cells and no further harm will come to you. You have my word.
    *whack*
    Very well, you do not have my word.
    -Should have taken him up on that.

    • Compare Loki's reaction to being asked if he's mad to "Is it madness?" from the first movie.


    Were those the car keys?
    -Whoops.



    • Who is Odin talking to in the opening narration? In the last movie, he was telling a story to his sons, but we don't see anything like that this time.


    Merriment can sometimes be a heavier burden than battle.
    Then you are doing one of them incorrectly.
    -Indeed.


    • It's funny that Loki choose to impersonate Captain America out of all the Avengers. Think about it. Which of them does Loki have the least in common with?


    My father does not know everything.
    Don't let him hear you say that.
    -Heh.


    • You ever seen Galaxy Quest? If you have, notice that both Sarrus and Malekith get the wounds on their face thanks to the hero's intervention. And in my opinion, they both look cooler with the scars.


    It's as if they resent being in prison.
    -Imagine that.


    • Is the Aether sentient? And if so, does it want to return to the Dark Elves? It would explain why the cops and guards got blown backwards when they touched Jane, but Thor and Loki didn't.


    I've got this completely under control.
    Is that why everything's on fire?
    -Apparently, that was part of the plan.


    • I hope Richard did find a girlfriend.

    • Jane's lifespan being short compared to Thor's is a reason to spend as much time as he can with her now. He can always find someone else (not necessarily Sif) later if he so desires.


    • Of course Jane is always sleeping with the Aether in her. That stuff is draining her life force and who knows what else it's doing to her. It's only natural that she'd be a little tired.



    Spoilers after this.

    • The ending can be compared to Dr. Horrible. We may not know what Loki has planned, but we do know it won't be good for the universe. And at least in Dr. Horrible's case, having someone he cared about kept him from being too evil. Even when Frigga was alive, Loki was willing to go to dangerous and sadistic lengths. And everyone thinks he's dead, so they won't see him coming.


    All I ever wanted was you and Odin dead at my feet!
    -I get the feeling he meant that.


      • Loki-as-Odin saying Odin was not the wisest ruler of all time:Was that a diss?


      You know this plan of yours is going to get us killed?
      Yes, possibly.
      -Maybe.



      • If Loki could survive getting stabbed in the gut, what would it take to kill him? That ending is just plain scary.


      • One final comparison:Loki's not-really-last words "I didn't do it for him" versus his plea "I did it for you, Father! For all of us!"


      • I am now shipping Ian and Darcy.

      • So why did Loki un-disguise himself after Thor left? Is it too much work to keep up the illusion for long?

      • I had another thought about the ending. A fan theory I've heard was that Loki losing to the Avengers was intentional. Why? Because Loki really wanted to rule Asgard and he's now close to the weapons in the vault and-  Holy crap, he's going to help Thanos destroy the universe.

      •  Building on that last one, is Loki still alive because of Thanos?

      • Also, I'm not so sure Loki planned to "die." Malekith hadn't been stopped yet, which meant the universe could still end. And I doubt he expected to survive getting impaled.

      • All right, did anyone think they were really going to kill off Loki, the most popular Marvel movie villain? With the millions of fans, some of whom are scary?
