contractually obligated to reblog just in case somebody at Marvel is keeping count
I’ll reblog just because it’s awesome! :D
#god i loved this scene SO MUCH #because she’s scared. she’s scared and everything’s going wrong and she just wants to huddle into a corner and do nothing at all #she’s just had to face her worst fear‚ something she can’t control‚ can’t manipulate‚ can’t fight #everything is going horribly wrong and honestly if she hadn’t answered i doubt anyone would have specifically noticed #but she gets up anyway. she pulls herself together and she radios in and she goes to stop clint. #some guy who totally missed the point complained in a review that it was unfeminist to have had her be scared and i say fuck that #do you have any idea how wonderful it was to see a heroine who freaks out and then pushes past it‚ sir #who is ALLOWED by the narrative to freak out‚ who is not shamed for her fear‚ who can be afraid without it defining her #because it was pretty fucking wonderful to me
The amount of work put into these Marvel animatics is pretty nuts.
Heat Exhaustion Symptoms
- Muscle cramps
- Pale skin
- Profuse sweating
- Sunken, dark eyes from dehydration
Do I need to remind you what he looked like during this entire scene?
He’s sweaty, his blood circulation isn’t working well due to vasoconstriction (namely, look at how pale his lips are,) and he’s got dark, sunken in eyes. Now we’ve got a point in which he trips and almost falls for some inexplicable reason. Well, let me ask you this.
How do you torture a frost giant?
Whedon wouldn’t just put in clips like this for no reason. He’s trying to show us something. The Loki we see here in this scene is not a healthy Loki, it’s a Loki who is weak and pale and probably focused on just staying conscious—a Loki who has probably been tortured by Thanos into submission and then sent out to do his dirty work for him, that way Thanos will never get the blame. Loki is just the puppet in the grand master scheme of things. Thanos is using him.
The Loki we see in Thor is radically different from the Loki we see in The Avengers. Sure, post-Thor, Loki is emotionally unstable, and maybe a little nuts, but he wasn’t a murderer. The only reason he went after Jotunheim is because he was having identity issues. Murder wasn’t something that was normal in his repertoire, yet we see him doing it frequently in The Avengers. The Loki we see at the end of Thor doesn’t want to live, let alone take over an entire realm that he had no interest in before. Something drastic must have happened between the two movies to have made Loki have such a huge character change.
It’s said that Thanos caught/rescued Loki after he fell from the Bifrost. Well, what did he do after that? Thanos is known for having telepathic powers, and since he had to have caught Loki knowing who he was and how strong he was, he likely broke into Loki’s mind to find out all of his fears and weaknesses. And once he found out all of Loki’s darkest secrets, it was easy to break him. He and the Chitauri took the Loki we saw in Thor and tortured and corrupted him until he was warped into their own personal demigod, ready to do their bidding. Why do you think Loki spouts off all these quotes about how “Freedom is life’s great lie,” and “In the end, you will always kneel”? He’s projecting.
So, when he trips? That’s the aftershocks of torture. That’s a Loki, weakened and struggling to stay upright, pushing forward through the pain because, otherwise?
“You will long for something as sweet as pain.”
He has to keep going because the alternative isn’t a question.
NEVER STOP REBLOGGING LOKISCIENCE
How do you know that much about my past, you foolish creature? WHO are you?
And no one. No one. Will ever be able to convince me that the marks on his head in this gif;
were not scorch/burn marks. Especially weighing the fact this segment was directed by Joss Whedon.
and given what we’re going to see in Thor 2, I have NO DOUBT that Loki’s actions weren’t entirely of his own free will.
They even went through explaining how much Loki loved Frigga and how close he was to her, and KNOWING FRIGGA IS GOING TO DIE, there’s a definite redemption bit happening there.
And don’t forget that in Avengers, LOKI’S EYES WERE BLUE.

The devil is in the details | Loki Costuming in the Avengers
THE most underrated scene in the entire movie. It was perfect. And do you know how often I see gif sets of it? This is the second one I’ve seen since the movie came out (It’s been over 5 months, now).
So let’s just pause for a moment from reblogging gifs of Tony’s sass, Loki’s sex appeal, or Bruce’s fluffiness and just appreciate this nameless, old, German guy and how, even though he knew he would probably die, he stood up to a tyrant to prove that the human race wouldn’t give up their freedom so easily.
Friendly reminder that it’s implied that he’s a Holocaust survivor.
Avengers’ New Groove Masterpost.
oh it’s not the masterpost… not yET:
LOL BEST POST EVER
Reblogging again for the new notes
THIS. SO MUCH OF THIS. YES.
this is why I’m on tumblr
IT GOT BETTER
I saw this post and rebloged it but then saw the comments and had to rebloged it again
We’ll just pull a Coulson and have him back in time for Avengers 3
To be fair he does die in the comics and Thor misses him so much he brings Loki back to life as Kid Loki.
“Useless,” they said. “Just there for sex appeal,” they said. “What do you mean she’s saving the day,” they said.
I will shank the next person I hear try to tell me Black Widow is useless.
I. Will shank them.
Imagine how hard it is to keep up with people who have super powers and super suits. Not only does she “keep up” but she holds her own, she doesn’t need to TRY and keep up with them, she just does. She goes toe to toe with Loki, and on a mental battlefield none-the-less. There is no doubt that even if Loki “packs a punch” as Cap puts it, his real power is his intellect. Black Widow takes him on and she wins.
Then during the big battle it’s HER that makes it up to the teseract, by hitching a ride on one of those fucking insane Chitari chariots and taking control of it. Imagine doing that when you don’t have a suit that lets you fly, or a serum that gives you super strength, or the powers of a god. She doesn’t even have Clint’s bow and special arrows, which he can clearly use to stop him during a fall.
Black Widow does it though, she does it and she ROCKS IT. Rocks the fuck out of it.
Haters can hate, but Black Widow is a total badass and nothing will change that fact.
black widow movie pls
Fuck yeah, Black Widow
