>Oh haylle yeeeah, nigga. Das, right kween, bust he's ass.

>Das right, take he dam weppons too, goorl



How long until negro fatigue hits the masses?


I just don't understand how they can use Loki like they do. I think he's supposed to be a Chaotic Evil according to Disney, but they treat him like a Lawful Evil. But in actuality I think he's supposed to be a chaotic neutral.
The body guard cop nigress is a literally me tier black woman just inserted into the story world. It's fucking disgusting. And the black judge nigress is like the delusional literally me type for black females.

That's what I mean. Aren't people tired of it yet? Black people don't watch this trash, do they?


A lot probably do. D+ is basically affordable day care.


>But in actuality I think he's supposed to be a chaotic neutral.
The Norse god is chaotic neutral.
He is the god of tricks, and you can't play tricks on everyone if you take a stand one way or another.


Yeah. In the trailer the head time cop is like
>You've stabbed people in the back like 50 times. It's what you do.
Implying Loki always turns on his allies because he wants to hurt them. It's fucked up.

You have all been trolled, the niggress is not in the original trailer. Someone edited her in with Artificial Intelligence as a racial stereotype.

Loki, Disney's Latest Nihilist Hero.
Moral relativism for die-hard Marvel fans.
Review by Armond White
June 9th, 2021

Not just for Marvel die-hards, Loki gives the shape-shifting trickster - derived from Norse mythology as Thor's adversary and last seen in Avengers: Endgame (2019) - his own storyline in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This six-part Disney+ television series tells us nothing about that old literature-class bromide about man's inhumanity to man, but it says a lot about the blatant commercialization of narrative.

Because schools apparently no longer teach interpretation, cathexis, or exegesis, Marvel and Disney's inhumanity to viewers is as brazen as Loki himself, the god of mischief played by tall, lanky Tom Hiddleston, whose pale skin and dark, flowing mane stylizes today's fashionable gender and moral chaos.

The TV show-runners behind Loki use Hiddleston's paycheck androgyny to disrupt notions of good and evil. They diddle with the narrative - further convoluting the Marvel plot ideas about timelines and Time Keepers - to get viewers wrapped up in silly minutiae. After Endgame, Loki takes the Tesseract cube and enters a new dimension where he must stand trial before the Time Variation Authority (TVA). This story arc exposes the makers' cynicism, while discombobulated viewers commit themselves to Hollywood venality.

Marvel and Disney's travesty is unacceptable following Zack Snyder's Justice League, a visionary narrative that was a restoration in the grandest sense, enlarging its characters' personal, principled choices. Snyder's sensual, kinetic imagery gave aesthetic substance, emotional weight, and suspense to human dilemma, even when told through the analogies of godlike or superhuman figures.

The fact that Loki is flimsy and doesn't take itself seriously is part of the Marvel-Disney problem. Director Kate Herron and writer Michael Waldron don't have Snyder's chops - the only visually interesting moments occur when Loki traipses his way past panoramic views of the TVA that's in another dimension (ripping off both Lord of the Rings and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets). Herron and Waldron settle for comic-book, sci-fi pastiche in which the narrative is reduced to the tongue-in-cheekiness that always gives away the budget and time constraints of TV production. Generations of TV viewers and now TV binge-watchers have learned to accept this discount sub-cinema (worth even less than what film-lover Frank Zappa saluted in his song "Cheepnis") in the name of what media sophisticates now acknowledge as "content."

Loki justifies each episode's content through the icon of the god of mischief ("a devil bearing gifts") whose misadventures "reorder the multiverse into a single pantomime." This means that Loki arbitrarily loses or regains his "magic" as the storytellers see fit. Mostly, it's Loki and TVA bureaucrats Mobius B. Mobius (Owen Wilson) and Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) endlessly investigating the series' own plot.

Such meta-TV as this actually resembles outdated vaudeville routines: Hiddleston and Wilson josh their way through MCU babble about apocalypse and annihilation - especially Wilson, whose familiar, slumming insouciance evokes the Wes Anderson-verse. Mobius taunts Loki: "For someone bound to win, you sure do lose a lot." Loki snaps: "Am I guilty of finding all this extremely tedious? Yes!" Wilson and Hiddleston are the minstrels Rastus and Mr. Bones, in their own version of Waiting for Godot.

Between the larky badinage and Star Wars-level stunt fights, Loki is casually nihilistic. Instead of Zack Snyder's impassioned, hopeful, struggling figures, Loki and the TVA mock serious consequence. It all comes down to Loki's time-crossing declaration "Everything is written. There's no such thing as free will. I know something children don't: It's 'No one bad is ever truly bad, and no one good is ever truly good.'"

So once again, Disney and Marvel exchange traditional morality for its opposite, teaching adolescent viewers to accept cartoon nihilism. Sure enough, when Loki is taught how the TVA works, it is through a cartoon instructional film. The series achieves its ultimate manifestation as Saturday-afternoon animation. With Loki, Marvel, Disney, and their die-hard constituents have found ways to make the banal even more banal.



Fuck, this guy nailed it HARD to the wall.
Incredibly accurate on all points.


Hes been very cogent and accurate lately. Based Armond

>Episode one clips
It's fucking bad.


Well ok so they defeated the entire purpose of the show because if Loki is so badass and they need him to be an agent then what's the point of having a character that can kick his ass effortlessly? Why not just send the magic negro on all the missions if she can defeat Loki so easily? Why do they need Loki at all then?


The opening scene in the desert makes no sense unless you accept that the God's often let themselves get hit because they have faith in their ability to either not be maimed or overcome the obstacles presented by that path of action. In other words, you take the blow to venture deeper into their world to see how they function, then turn godlike.
The fight with her is clipped. He does get the upper hand, but she's still highly annoying. She's not silenced or btfo like Loki is consistently.


In the dimension of the cops, he has no powers.
He should still be super strong though because it's the fibers in their body, but that is conveniently ignored.


Like I understand the psychology of emasculating a white male character physically by a strong black woman, but doing so renders the plot of the show pointless. He needs to be submissive, the power dynamics are that he is subservient to the black woman, but it completely defeats the point of Loki as an agent if they already have characters that make him irrelevant in the field.


Ahhhh plot armor.


Any time Loki asks why, Owen Wilson says, "You'll catch up."
It's really fucking lame.
It's not that long of a show, so why hold out the details for later episodes?
It felt incredibly thin, and when the threat of the story was revealed to be Loki himself (another version of him), it felt even more thin because we're robbed of yet another villain/role.


Stopped reading when he started praising Snyder crap


The worst is the comments where they talk about it like its Shakespeare. Fuck capeshit.


They only need him to fight another version of him and humiliate that version as well.


>I learned humility by black women wielding authority over me.


Damn can't believe the show ended in the first 5 minutes, with the female cops mistakenly using her deadly anti-testosterone blade instead of her time stun baton.
