It would seem that Disney+’s Loki Thor 2’s savior. It appears that the Loki Marvel series is trying to redeem Thor: The Dark World contrarily from what WandaVision committed with Avengers: Age of Ultron. Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age of Ultron were prosperous at the box office, but they are not highly respected compared to other Marvel movies.
When it comes to the popularity of MCU movies, both of these films are a bit low on that list. Both the movies had their weaknesses and reportedly are the weakest standalone of their respective franchise. Furthermore, many Marvel fans called The Dark World the worst of the MCU movies, and to say that whether it’s true or not is dubious.
The reason behind why the movie received so much criticism was the less than a threatening villain, the inadequate representation of the Thor-Jane foster romance, its failure to stand out as a unique MCU story, and so much more.
How is Disney+’s Loki Thor: The Dark World’s Saviour?
In episode one of Loki, fans are brought back to the Dark World, and the scene puts the spotlight on the brutal fate of Loki’s foster mother, Frigga. Loki Marvel character is witnessing what happened to the original version of Loki, and the scene scrutinizes his role in his mother’s death expressively and sensitively.
When Agent Mobius explains the situation to him, he realizes that the death of his mother at the hands of Malekith was his fault. Frigga’s demise and the God of Mischief’s part always should have been a significant evolution moment for Loki’s Marvel character. So it’s pleasant to see that the series is concentrating on it correctly.
Also, the Loki series gave fans a glimpse into Loki’s subconscious by showing the real reason he mistreats people. It turns out it’s all about the delusion of power for him, and he does not desire to harm anyone. This explains why Loki betrayed everyone, including his brother Thor and struggled to make the right choices.
Another reference to the movie in the Loki series was the world, creating it gave the multiverse in the Miss Minutes sequence. This concept was previously teased as a part of MCU through Erik Selvig’s chalkboard in The Dark World, but only now has it become of significance.
As the show releases new episodes every week, the Loki series may make more references to Thor: The Dark World, especially those concentrating on Loki’s arc.
From what we have gathered, Thor: The Dark World is indeed a bothersome film, but that doesn’t insinuate it, or any of the slightly vulnerable films of MCU should be waived. Luckily, it has never happened in Marvel Cinematic Universe, and we hope it will remain the same in the future.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, many of its incidents word reviewed in-depth in Disney+’s WandaVision. It helped make the movie better in so many ways, including addressing events like how Wanda got her powers from the mind stone, the impact of her brother’s death on her, and how HYDRA experimented on both the twins. It would be nice if Marvel decides to do the same and help Loki build a better reputation for Thor: The Dark World among fans.
