Default Re: Tom Hiddleston: Loki Redux

It's not just the fangirls who think Loki should have a redemptive arc. I think it's a natural, sensible place for the character to go, given his portrayal in the last two movies, and especially with a new villain taking centre stage in this film.

Taking this approach is not just fan-service, and it's not untrue to the character. Some of the best Loki stories in the comics have dealt with his moral ambiguity and tackled the question of whether or not he's beyond redemption. Just making him an evil badass would be a step backwards at this stage, and would be doing a disservice to the complex, conflicted character Tom Hiddleston has so skillfully brought to life.
