they never fucking shut up about “I’m burdened with glorious purpose” well what about “I never wanted the throne, I only ever wanted to be your equal.” guess which quote he said first and with less motivation to lie about it

anyways i got stuck on that train of thought because it felt so on the nose that loki the god of being a nuisance to authorities is working at an oppressive corporate office that will kill him if he acts out and that generally clearly doesn’t value autonomy or individual lives very much and his only issue with the whole situation was that he wasn’t good enough at sucking up because he wants to be the CEO

I think it’s bc storytelling has been commodified. Like it’s lost it’s soul, and I don’t mean that in a pretentious way it’s just. Idk it just feels like another Product you know? I think they’ve figured out that it doesn’t actually matter what kinda boring ugly garbage they put out there, so long as they cultivate a strong enough hype culture around every new release or ‘Reveal’. Idk if any of this is making sense bc it’s hard to put into words, but I just wanted to say that I think I get where you’re coming from. I think a lot of people are starting to feel it actually, even some of the more diehard fans.
I get what you mean with this and I get the feeling but I think it's important to view that commodification not as a genuine cultural phenomenon but as something artificial that serves the interests of a specific and limited group of people who have something close to a monopoly on the entertainment industry right now.
And what I was saying is that the movies and shows arent bad because it takes less effort to look ugly and be hollow the way that they are-- marvel movies are extremely, heinously expensive and work-intensive to make.
the hype-culture has been carefully constructed by putting in extra time and effort to make sure that no actors know any spoilers, and that's worth investing in because it's part of the ad campaign.
It's specifically expensive ugly meaningless garbage that is not infrequently supposed to be based on cheap colorful garbage that the author tried to put some kind of progressive message into, be that subtext or text.
D*sney is convinced that what it's doing is lucrative, is worth the time and effort and millions and millions of dollars it costs to tell hollow stories that absolutely never challenge any cultural status quos.
And D*sney is in the position to spend all those millions of dollars and exert this much control over every aspect of the storytelling process because it has something like a monopoly on the entertainment industry, because the government has no reason to prevent that, because fascist political strategies benefit A LOT from a homogeneous entertainment industry that never challenges any cultural status quos.

wish i could properly articulate the fucked up insidious vibe ive been getting increasingly from mcu and, heck, even general d*sney properties, which I noticed starting with infiniwar. feels darker than corporate bloat. it says something about society i swear to god. something about showboating your superficial flirtation with the idea of nuanced character motivations and yet persistently presenting a dichotomy of Bad Guy Who THINKS Ends Justify The Means versus Good Guy Who’s Ends ACTUALLY Justify The Means (And He’s So So Sad The Means Had To Be Bad), with no room in it for the actual nuance of questioning putting the ends before the means all together. something about how this is limiting the conversation into a dichotomy which is very useful to specifically the american military and corporations because they are more easily able to market themselves as The Good Option within that false dichotomy so long as you don’t question it. you know what i mean??

Okay so do you remember all the fuss about Kate Herron stating that the Loki series is inspired by Teletubbies?
Well, I think I found out something...
See this variant? Notice his outfit.
Now look at the Teletubbies. Especially the green one.
I’ll leave you alone now.

anyways im so sick of this loki saying hes a trickster god and then getting 1 funny moment in the entire episode. instead of reading montages there should have been a montage of attempts to convince people to steal classified information for him without getting in trouble. loki pays close attention to the rules of the tva as an excuse to ask invasive questions. it’s all a stupid bureaucratic system that everyone follows to a T so he would find every conceivable loophole to be exempt from being vaporized for all kinds of annoying but ultimately harmless stuff. surely an infinite office worker world has a bizarre bartering/favor system and gossip and shit that he could get into. im fucking tired of mcu focusing on universe-ending action only when there are dozens of randos you could have funny conversations with in every situation

what a frustrating reminder it is that everything about this that i was ever invested in as a starry-eyed teen was subtext, and that d*sney is increasingly determined paint over any room for interpretation with reassurances for a conservative status quo. like...I tend to think of unintentional subtext as the lowest bar for this sort of thing, but d*sney’s really set on making it a luxury

THAT LOKI TWIST WAS SOOOOO BAD I felt like I was losing my mind watching it. I'm so glad I'm not alone in this thank you
honestly the lady loki was the worst part but the amount of time in that episode that i had to see him not do anything funny and read files in a room and wear an ugly suit

honestly I’m pissed and I’m mad but deep down I can’t say I’m truly surprised that d*sney is working so hard to make sure their first canon trans character is not canonically trans and also has the highest onscreen kill count in the show

i've heard theories that it's actually the enchantress and not lady loki
I mean. it would be less transphobic but it would sure be a stupid twist from a writing perspective as well. the lesser of two losses in this lose/lose scenario lskjfkjsg

I can’t fucking believe my low-bar hope that they would just have loki shapeshift into girl for like a one-off episode for some [waves hand around] time cop investigation reason, and it would all be played off as like a “lol hes so zany and weird for being ok w being percieved as a girl temporarily and we will never address this again” thing, WAS PUTTING THE BAR TOO FUCKING HIGH.

AAUAUUGHSGDHLHSDLKGHDSLKFJSHLKG I MADE A JOKE. I MADE A JOKE WATCHING THE FIRST EPISODE THAT THEY WOULD JUST MAKE THE EVIL VERSION OF LOKI THE LADY LOKI BECAUSE OF HOW BLATANTLY TRANSMISOGYNIST THAT WOULD BE. I WAS FUCKING KIDDING. I HATE THIS FUCKING FRANCHISE SO MUCH GENUINELY
