It’sbeen a day since Loki but my thoughts are still very much on the God of Mischief’s elating episode and the series so far. Today, in honor of the series’ first three glorious episodes, I’m sharing some fan art inspired by each episode from the incomparable Uzuri Art. Enjoy!
The first episode of Loki really beat our favorite mischievous Asgardian down bit by bit until he was a crying, disheveled husk of himself. This piece encapsulates his “I don’t have time for this. I’m a God” personality in a nutshell.
I think Benedict Cumberbatch is my favorite actor now and it’s because of this show.
My first introduction to Cumberbatch was via Star Trek: Into Darkness where he played the villain, Khan. I remember seeing him for the first time in the trailer and thinking, “Wow, he looks cool.” My father took my sister and me to see it and while I pretty much don’t remember anything about the movie or Cumberbatch in the film his impact in the trailer, alone, struck me.
The second movie I saw that featured Cumberbatch was The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug where he voiced Smaug who, by the way, I feel is the greatest onscreen dragon of all time.
His voice rumbled through my very soul as I watched the film for the first time at an IMAX midnight showing with my family. He was, in short, amazing! He brought such a grandiosity, a sense of menace and real threat to Bilbo and the dwarves that he was one of the reasons why I still happen to enjoy The Desolation of Smaug whenever I get far enough to see the dragon.
Yesterday’s episode of Loki was fantastic. A bit slow at times, yes, but ultimately so much fun. When it ended I found myself reeling and now I’m going to share with you my entire thoughts about that episode and all of its bright points. So, with no further delay, here we go.
Episode 2, The Variant, is Marvel at its finest. We get Loki being hilarious, a thrilling mystery to solve, and the episode ended with a bang! I’m honestly stunned not because I didn’t see the surprise coming but because the surprise came so early and right now…I am just blown away. What a series!
I’ll elaborate more tomorrow when I’ve wrapped my brain around the awesomeness of this show but for now…
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a glorious day.
