Thor: The Dark World (liveblog) [x]
THIS WAS THE GREATEST. I knew ahead of time about the cameo, but I still laughed out loud watching it, bless Chris Evans’ comedic timing and the way he does Loki impersonating Steve. It was a really great joke, one of the few that I definitely can’t begrudge the movie having made.
I’m also delighted that Loki chose, of all the Avengers, Steve to impersonate, because it makes you wonder, given that they actually never really interacted in the movie. Loki shared glances with Bruce, had a conversation with both Tony and Natasha, he spent a lot of time with Clint, but Steve was the one he never really interacted that much with. So, why focus on him? (Besides, “Chris Evans was available for a cameo, that’s why.”)
I like to indulge in the Steve/Loki shipping feels sometimes for that. Like, even if they didn’t interact, he noticed Captain America. That line of thought is really good for me.
But I also like to think it’s because he’s similar to Thor, that he’s one of those noble and honest types, the giant powerhouse characters who are leaders in times of war, who will always do the right thing to the best of their abilities. He’s the one that immediately comes to mind, he’s the one that Loki thinks Thor would get long better with than Loki himself, that this is meant to be mocking and cruel to Thor, but probably ends up being a thorn in his own flesh as well.
And the final great thing about this scene, when you watch it, Loki’s doing his antics and Thor only occasionally glances over at him, always looking out for anyone who might spot them, but it’s not until Loki comments on how tight the uniform is on him, practically DARING Thor to look over and see how tight the costume is across his ass, that Thor’s gaze finally slides back over to Loki. It’s hilarious, because those photosets of, “Don’t look, don’t look, don’t look—” ”HEY THOR CHECK OUT HOW TIGHT MY HOT BUTT LOOKS IN THIS OUTFIT.” ”—*looks* Dammit.” ARE NOT THAT FAR OFF.
