“My 9 year old nephew just stops and shouts ‘Dr Who!’, pointing at him. The Doctor then lowered his sunglasses, immediately crossed the road and got straight into character. He crouched down and asked him where he could get some decent fish fingers and custard and that we shouldn’t walk round that corner because there’s a rather angry Cyberman after him. My nephew loved this.”
so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy
Hrmm never thought about it that way haha
Peeta Mellark + Sass.
this kid’s sass is on a whole other level
that’s a part of the book they captured really well, though
like one of Peeta’s abilities was that he was really, really good with words. He could make people laugh, make touching speeches, argue eloquently, all that.
of all the scenes that broke my heart, this one shredded it.
The moment that Loki surpassed Tony Stark as the leading “hot mess” of the Marvel Universe.
I’d like to point out that (as far as we, the audience, know) this is the last time Loki speaks to his mother before her death.
See, I was under the impression that the Frigga here was Loki’s creation, not Frigga’s creation, and thus was not actually his mother in any way. I took Odin’s “You’ll never see your mother again” thing seriously, especially since it seems that while Loki can perform magic within his cell, magic cannot penetrate the cell (either going in or going out).
Yep, still pretty convinced this is Loki’s illusion, not Frigga’s. (even if the kid’s novelization apparently says differently)
If this is Loki’s illusion, he is <em>extremely</em> fractured psychologically; it’s not just that he is running illusions of his mother, but that he is having full and genuine arguments with them. Perfectly plausible, of course.
From a worldbuild perspective - one does expect it would be easier to build a cell that can contain magic in both directions. Frigga being able to project in while Loki cannot project out seems like it might be more difficult than simply putting up a barrier that magic cannot cross in either direction.
Me, I prefer to believe Frigga can project in. We see in this movie that Loki learned his fighting style and using magic in fighting from her. If anyone could manage something, it would be Frigga. And I honestly find it more interesting if that is genuinely Frigga — Loki’s quiet madness in lonely isolation is nowhere near as interesting as him lashing out to create his isolation from those who do love him.
Agreed. It doesn’t seem impossible to make it permeable to magic in only one direction, and it works much better in the story.
Something to ponder about
