Good. We have to talk about it Loki This is a very rare textbook case Wonder.
It’s no longer an open secret MCU has been in enormous pain ever since Avengers: Endgame and its decision to split its creative catalog into two distinct divisions: theatrical and streaming. The implication is that you now have to binge yourself with some really bad series and pay the service subscription to keep following one MCU which, due to the multiverse, goes in all directions and stays on a coherent line, sometimes marked by absurdity. The last example is telling The wonders : To understand all the problems, you have to have experienced the really bad series yourself Secret invasion and that ” meh ” Series Ms. Marvel. Except that I watched the very long and uninteresting one Captain Marvel from 2019 which gave us an overview of the character of Carol Danvers. Oh yes, but still there is that too WandaVision. However, this series is much better but it will clearly explain to you who it is Monica Rambeauembodied by Teyonah Parris. After several series it is clear Wonder that the attempt had actually failed. She-Hulk, Secret Invasion and Ms. Marvel are vulgar, infamous TV pastiches, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and What If are immediately seen, immediately forgotten. Hawkeye, WandaVision and Moon Knight seem more entertaining on their own Loki floating above the rest.
The series of Kate Herron is rooted in the narrative (re)creation of a story for itself God of mischief at the time Avengers: Endgame. Leave one God obsessed with his desire to rule the Earth and his future salvation. We’re starting from scratch to deconstruct the anti-hero and consistently create a central figure for future projects. And that’s the only time that Wonder does this cleverly in a series Disney+.
The character experiences his future in the basic MCU timeline in a well-crafted opening, he becomes conscious, there’s a real click. Everything he is about to experience makes him aware of the need to go in a different direction, while at the same time maintaining his zeal and narcissism that give substance to the character.
Then comes a pretty insightful first season where we realize the significance VAT and we mainly focus on Loki, even if it means forgetting the supporting characters. Alone Mobius (Owen Wilson) And Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) have some space. A season that also allows us to present the open The one who staysvarying from Kang the Conquerorwhich allows us to grasp the drastic problems that will structure Wonder In the coming years. Season 1 is a compendium of good artistic ideas set against the backdrop of some pretty effective innovative entertainment. It is therefore self-evident that Disney wanted to put on a show, the only element of the series’ first triptych to continue Disney+ for a second step.
And there it is Wonder almost made his best series project. It was necessary to follow up Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniathis very lousy film, which nevertheless –officially– introduces the warrior variant of Kang. The second season of Loki should take the place VAT are at the center of the story and make us feel the threat Kang despite the legal setbacks of Jonathan Majors who come to give the universe a chill. The doctorate was based on this Victor Timelya variant of the character.
The opening gives the “ There ” As I said Nikos Aliagas. Loki wanders through time, dragging its spats between past, present and future, where we are distilled several clues to the rest of the series. But the show then gives us two very pathetic episodes based on a E2 where absolutely nothing happens and E3 where the only point of interest remains in a fascinating one Miss Minutes where the sadistic side of AI wasn’t an option Wonder wanted to dig. Victor Timely adds nothing to the story. But where the series woke up was in the Dantesque finale of Episode 4. We shoot the entire temporal heart and delete all characters Loki white. The latter recognizes: “ All is lost“. Finally Wonder manages to restore a bit of dramaturgy. This is followed by episode 5, in which this dramaturgy continues.
Like in Avengers: Infinity War, Loki sees his friends disappear into spaghetti.
Without offering us other visual highlights like the first part, this time season 2 offers us a better scenario with (finally) character developments and much stronger emotional stakes. For once we are able to root ourselves again in a community of characters that only… Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 has made it since the end of Phase 3. And above all, Episode 6 offers us an important reinterpretation of an important episode.
When Loki and Sylvie are confronted with “He Who Dwells” in the final episode of Season 1, the character realizes that the only way to escape all the evil of S2 is to kill Sylvie. He will not make it. Kang’s variant takes control. Leaving his little funny side, the character takes on a more sinister appearance and gives the rest a real goosebumps.
And what about that spectacular finale that shouldn’t surprise you?
A nice end to what is now new God of stories (Oops).
