My husband and I finally got a chance to see Thor. It was everything that we thought it should be... Action, heart pumping, and Thor was a great hero. Idris Elba actually fit in this Thor version. In fact, we were impressed with the multicultural crew and strong female characters. For the most part it seemed like a traditional Marvel movie. The only thing we both disliked was Loki. I mean what was up with his character?
I thought I "got" Loki's traditional character as the trickster and evil manipulator but this Loki was an odd bird. I just didn't understand him. My husband and I went back and forth as to why the character flopped. Tom Hiddleston did a great acting job. The words rolled off my tongue, "This Loki reminded me of Adolf Hitler."
We both looked at each other and had an Arsenio Hall moment, "Hmm." We actually created a list in the car. Tell me what you think:
Did Hollywood do this on purpose? If I were a white supremacist, I think I would be mad. I might even boycott this movie but not because of Idris Elba's character.
Did anyone else think that this Loki was odd? What do you all think about these similarities? I'd love to hear comments. I'm pushing the envelope here. If you think I've gone to far, let me know.
