Loki: Brother of Thor – The Loki film that never was

io9.com shared a very interesting fan edited video [edited by vimeo user – Loki Odinson] yesterday, in which footage from the two Thor movies and the Avengers, with the addition of deleted scenes are woven into a more Loki based narrative.

With the explosion of interest in the character since he first hit screens as played by Tim Hiddleston, It wouldn’t be that much of a stretch to imagine an audience for a Loki movie to be at least equal to if not bigger than that of Thor’s. I mean at this point Tumblr is pretty much 50% Loki slash fiction or so I imagine.

The fan said of their edit:

So I’m a big super hero fan and love the Marvel universe, especially the character ensemble connecting through multiple films. I created this fan edit just for fun, because I wanted to watch one movie with all of Loki’s scenes combined (Thor, Avengers, Thor 2).

My goal was to chronicle the character development of Loki into a single narrative. You’ll notice I took out a lot fluff and even some beloved fight scenes, only because I was trying to focus the film on Loki and his relationships. I also inserted all of the relevant deleted scenes (you’ll notice that they haven’t been fully rendered and mixed), several of which add great depth to his story and family dynamics. A big challenge was bridging the end of Thor and the beginning of The Avengers, explaining Loki’s exile and involvement with the Tesseract *before* he portals to earth. I created a montage to kinda show all that, even pulling a clip from Guardians of the Galaxy.

There are a few creative liberties I took with my edits that change intent/plot. Noticeably absent are Thor’s and Iron Man’s character arcs. My goal wasn’t to sully these films and their characters, but rather offer a different interpretation that celebrates Loki….so no offense intended.

The opening scene of my edit is a flash forward to a contemplative, imprisoned Loki, spliced with footage from Tom Hiddleston’s screen test when he auditioned for Thor’s character, aptly capturing Loki’s jealousy (the duality between them is really the meat of this film, hence the title Loki: Brother of Thor). Then there’s a bit of a scary awakening from the character that *probably* haunts Loki’s dreams.

Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy, you mewling quim

Of course using deleted scenes there are some that are pre-visual effects, which someone detracts from the overall piece but it is fun to see how the films have been spliced into something completely different. All I can say is where is my Sif movie already?
