Believe me, I predicted 650 and It looks like it will fall short just a 10-13 mil from it, so I am ok with its ww gross (dom might be bigger if film was better - around 225 mil), but do you really think that this gross is all about Loki and if he was not present the movie may decreased from the first part? I do not think so. It doing what sequels are doing+ push from Avengers but nothing spectacular.

When I am talking about supposed popularity I am talking about "OMG he is such a draw! Like second only to RDJ`s IM in MCU!" it`s not like this plain and simple. He have his fans, but GA going to TDW to see MCU story with one of the avengers and not for Loki he is an added bonus in contrast to IM where people going to see avenger, MCU story, and RDJ.

Only coherent character ark that come back to Thor 1 position.
I disagree that his grief for his mother wasn't real. It definitely was. Loki is just a master at turning situations into advantage and there's nothing that indicates that he planned to replace Odin even when they were at Svartalfheim. He had already gotten his revenge when he faked his death and it was all that he needed. If he had died it wouldn't have been a tragic death of a man who didn't live to see revenge, it would have been a redemptive sacrifice as he got what he wanted.

And he definitely has an arc. There's nothing that says that a character arc can't end up in the same place as it started when it's finished. Loki showed a new side to him and changed as long as he had to. And of course the arc outside of his emotions is pretty significant, going from the dungeons to the throne, creating a Loki trilogy of sorts where he finally got what he always wanted. Probably the only CBM villain to manage that.

Yep, I think that Magneto will be second. New trilogy variation as old one was already in status quo when X-Men happened.

I hope so. Magneto and Loki are my favorite CBM villains this far so I can't object to any of the two getting what they want on a conceptual level.

What is the "T-bomb"? I'm not comic expert.

I'm not familiar with a T-Bomb. Time Bomb maybe? the event that brought the 616 universe into the Ultimate universe?

I assume its the Terrigen Bomb, with which the Inhumans intended to mutate the entire galaxy.

Yeah, the Terrigen Bomb was in War of Kings.....Black Bolt was going to trigger it with his voice and unleash Terrigen Mists on the whole universe, effectively transforming everyone into Inhumans.

That chalkboard also has a reference to "The Crossroads" right underneath "The Fault." That's probably the Crossroads of Reality, a pocket dimension that the U-Foes emerged from. So those little tidbits alone point towards The Inhumans, The War of Kings, and Hulk's classic enemies the U-Foes.

...Thought the U-Foes were just a variation of Cosmic Rays like the FF? I haven't read that origin in awhile.

Yeah, I didn't mean origins, sorry. The U-Foes were a redux of the FF; but early on, they were exiled to the Crossroads of Reality by the Avengers.

Yeah...I can definitely agree with some of that.

Honestly, IF they ever do kill off Loki (while Tom and Chris are attached to the roles), I just can't see on how it can top the moment when Loki "died" in Thor:TDW. I mean, it's been done already now...and we were led to believe in that moment that Loki had really died..and for a noble cause.

Personally, I thought that Loki should have stayed dead. It would have been a good finale to his character. If they had to bring him back..then they should have done so as a ghost or a spirit in obi-wan type of appearance.

Thanos as well will probably have some depth.

We heard that we will learn of him in GotG which means he will probably have some depth. Loki, Ultron, and Thanos are all going to be big characters.

I really look forward to Thanos, I think he is a character that can possibly be the most tragic villain seen so far, aside from Magneto.

I would have hated that. A lot. Said it a million times, Loki was the character that got me into comic book villains, I would never be okay with them doing that to Loki

Yes, Thanos certainly has a chance to be great. I'm not including him in my "ranking" of villains yet though as he hasn't done anything but given a cool smile.

Yeah, but I can't say that I worry about that. If they are building towards him for years I can't imagine that they won't do their best to do him justice.

He doesn't look that bad to me. Not everybody should have a six pack. I personally find smooth, unrippled tummies more attractive. Guys with six packs are nice to look at but that's about it for me.

I guess they figured that making a CGI helmet was more cheaper than making an actual one due to how brief Bor's role was.
