Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - Part 6
Yeah, I'd say the it's an astral projection too.
Loki's sceptre starts glowing when the whole thing begins, he closes his eyes, concentrating. He is told that the Chitauri are restless by the Other and he feels pain (on earth) when the Other touches Loki's "body" in space.
Looks more like a kind of communication / projection to me than Loki just remembering events from the past.
