Beeeaaauutiful scene in every way.
WHY WAS THIS NOT IN THE MOVIE. WHY.HIS MAKES LOKI’S SPEACH ABOUT NEVER WANTING THE THRONE MORE MEANINGFUL.BUT WITHOUT THIS SCENE IN THE MOVIE, IT SEEMED LIKE EVERYTHING LOKI DID WAS TO GET THE THRONE AND HE EXPECTED TO GET IT AUTOMATICALLY.HOWEVER, IN THIS SCENE HE SEEMS GENUINELY SURPRISED AND UNSURE AT FIRST..
In Thor they did everything they could to dehumanize Loki. Think about it, what if when you saw it the first time the scenes involving Loki were not taken out? Loki and Thor before the coronation, Before they head off to Jotunheim, this scene.. Loki would never even seem like a villain in the most loose definition.
They were sparing us the heartbreak the first time around, when we didn’t know what was coming.
