Fan Edit BROTHER OF THOR Puts Loki Center Stage

Good hell, Loki has some dedicated fans. It's understandable. He is, thus far, the most interesting villain in the Marvel cinematic universe, and the only one to be a major antagonist in multiple movies (I don’t think Thanos’ post-credits appearance in The Avengers counts as major, so don’t come at me). He is also played by Tom Hiddleston, possibly the most charming man on the planet. He’s definitely in the top ten. Hiddleston has made Loki a highlight of Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World. I’d even be willing bet that if you added up all his screen time you could make a full-length movie.

Okay, so that’s a pretty safe bet, because someone did that. I told you, Loki has some dedicated fans. A Vimeo user going by the name Loki Odinson has cut all of Loki’s footage, including deleted scenes, into a 2 hour and 15 minute movie called Loki: Brother of Thor. He even worked in the test footage from Hiddleston’s audition to play Thor, and in a way that actually works. This isn’t just a supercut. Loki Odinson cut the scenes into a narrative with a coherent story arc. This is what he said about the project.

“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.”

This was an intensive (and awesome) project, and I think it’s fair to say, well-done, Loki Odinson.

Thanks to Dark Horizons for the find.
