Re: Tom Hiddleston: Loki Redux
A lot of people keep saying Loki is evil. In my mind, Loki is not and never has been evil. He's a petulant child lashing out at his uncaring father and popular brother. He's just also incredibly intelligent, so he finds really complex and intriguing ways to lash out at them. The fact that he kills a few mortals along the way doesn't really make him evil because, frankly, all of the gods other than Thor himself and maybe Odin view the mortals as little more than pets.
As far as Loki in the next movie, I wouldn't mind the beginnings of a redemption arc for him. That could be cool. He's a prisoner but you know he'd be a very Hannibal Lecter-style prisoner, toying with everyone's mind even while he's locked up. Really, though, what I have my heart set on is a big blowout with Surtur in Thor 3 where Loki ultimately joins Odin and Thor to defend Asgard together.
