As for the Loki scenes, I think you're discounting Taylor's involvement. He said in interviews that he liked the Loki scenes he'd shot and wanted to inject more of him. I have no doubt that Marvel took it upon themselves to right a ship they thought was overturning, but let's not pretend Taylor was a passive victim here. He's a guy they brought in to pretty up Asgard. It's Marvel's fault for not taking enough time to choose a director that actually cared about the characters, too.
Exactly, they mis-managed this one from the start, and Taylor has said a lot of things, like he agree with Marvel wanting more humour in the movie, and yet he still told fans to ask for a DC and dodged important issues with the film.
Jenkins seemingly left on good terms, but whether it was her or Marvel who forced the spilt its obvious Marvel were not letting her do her thing. I dont think they let Taylor do his thing either, and thats why the movie is so jumbled.
