Well, then I guess jealous, fighting fangirls would cause the bad guys some grief.

I feel kind of bad actually feeling like it would be satisfying to see angry, possessive, mean spirited Loki fangirls getting into a massive fight with one another. But in all seriousness as Tumblr has shown some of them are downright combative, vindictive and rough, especially to the peace loving fans. It makes me scared to know what celebrity echelon type fangirls/boys are like with all that money and hangers ons at their disposal.

I am not gunna lie, I think that the tumbler fangirls of Loki completely ruin the character for me.

And how does the behavior of a few obsessed fans destroy your interpretation of a character?

I don't have any problems with enthusiastic fans. What I do take issue with are those that get way too territorial over Tom and act very aggressive towards others like it's a real life contest for his affections.

It ruins the enjoyment...as I have said before, Loki is the character in the comics who got me more intrigued by villains. A lot of them have tunnel vision, and it just...is awkward for me to see fangirls treating a character like that. This is a character who in my eyes, has ALWAYS been THE quintessential villain. The way he was in the comics, his scheming, the lengths he took things and how he pushed things, it intrigued me a lot. MCU, or 616, to me, Loki is still Loki. So to see people "gushing" over a character, and saying he's just missunderstood, and writing every other POV off as wrong, well that irritates me because what they are referring to is NOT the Loki I grew up to like, and it just seems...i don't know how to put it..wrong.

This, essentially
I see. There's a fear that producers may decide to deviate from the original intent of the character into a more palpable, "misunderstood" character?

Bleh. Yeah, I prefer the bad-ass! I watch some you tube videos that show him with these lullaby songs all gushy with those feelies...

I prefer to rock out and see some fireworks.

Tumblr creeps me out. It's like the drunk uncle of the internet. I don't think that there is anything wrong with enthusiasm. I love talking about plots and characters in detail that would totally bore the casual fan. But the possessiveness thing is really creepy, not to even touch on the super creepy things some fans say about Loki and/or Hiddleston. There isn't anything wrong with finding an actor or actress attractive, but to proclaim really strange, over-sexualized and inappropriate things is just too much. It's like, if it would embarrass the person you are talking about to say it out loud to them, don't write it down.

I think a lot of the whole "he's just misunderstood" thing comes from the trope of wanting to reform the "bad boy". And while I might agree with that sentiment for like, the first 20 minutes of Thor (seriously, hasn't Asgard ever heard of family therapy?) the frustrating thing is that it totally ignores how the character has progressed from that point based on the free-will choices he made.

Good points. I also noticed how Loki progressed even more to the dark side in The Avengers. He just run roughshod over anyone in his way. A total bad ass psycho. There was no "misunderstanding" with him in that film. He just wanted to be feared and obeyed.

It's funny, in that .gif image after Loki fires that blast from the staff the split second reaction afterwards is like, "Whoa, did I just do that?"

To briefly take the topic back to the superficial one of Loki's appearance in the teaser:

So apparently some fan managed to meet Tom at the Olivier Awards and she asked him about Loki's hair, his response was to wait and see that there was a "reason for it"

*shrugs shoulders*.... makes me wonder if they're eventually going to go for the ponytail look on Loki (not sure how well that would work in live action though).

Back to the current topic (re: tumblr) I agree with most, Tumblr scares me especially when searching the Loki or Tom Hiddleston tag (so much so that I've learned never to search tumblr during work because there are things that pop up that are most certainly NSFW). The insanity of *some* of the fangirls on that site is one reason why I'm resisting creating an account (despite the fact that I have a few good friends that have tumblr sites as well as my sister - who I just found out had one yesterday, can't believe she caved, but she says a lot of her author friends have tumblr so....)

Oh the insanity of some of these fangirls is very out of control. I've even seen some of them making blatant threats to other fangirls's safeties because their jealous possessiveness is so out of check. It's even worse when you meet some of these individuals in person as I have.

But anyways on a more positive note, I thought you'd all appreciate this little video Youtube recommended to me:

What's a bit weirder are instances of Tom paired with Loki in slash fictions I have seen on the web.

This video is so cute; thanks for posting it. My son is "meme" crazed and is always talking to me about this cat. He will love this video.

I especially liked the kitty, rather than Thor's hammer, on his chest. So very cat-like!

Re the jealous possessiveness--I've noticed this on line, too. Not only with Tom, with other fandoms as well. People trying to prove who is the "better" fan. Sheesh.

I'm glad I could brighten your day with that little find of mine. It really does cheer you up doesn't it? By all means please give us your son's reaction when you post next time!

ACTUALLY :P, it's just on a loop...fury tells him to put down the spear...Loki THEN looks at the staff, THEN fires it, he looks at it before, not after :P
