SPOILER-FREE: I keep it short. Very short, avoiding accidental spoilers.
Loki season 2 continues right away from season 1 (rewatch recommended).
Simply explained – this is “The Mandalorian” of the MCU, even having a potentially “cute merch” option with Alligator Loki, although season 2 has much more of an “Andor” vibe to it.
And then there’s this stellar cast, they are making us laugh, cry, care – and care deeply, making fictional characters in a comic-book based SF/Fantasy story feel REAL.
Is Tom Hiddleston actually a god?
His Loki in pursuit of glorious purpose transcends comic book/movie villains/heroes – The Night Manager, “War Horse” Capt. Nicholls, “Wallander” Magnus Martinsson and Hamlet rolled into 1.
All writers (mainly Eric Martin and Michael Waldron) and directors (mainly Kate Herron) deserve my deepest compliments as well – and awards, lots of awards.
This is how it’s done.
