Why Tom Hiddleston didnt uses power gems?
After the God of Mischief meddles with time and breaks reality with a stolen Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame, star Tom Hiddleston says Loki is “very confused and destabilized” when we see him next in the Marvel Studios original series. Arrested by Agent Michael M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) and the Time Variance Authority and facing deletion from reality for his crimes against the sacred timeline that is the mainline Marvel Cinematic Universe, this “Variant Loki” will have to help Agent Mobius and the TVA fix what he’s broken in the wake of his thwarted invasion of Earth in 2012’s The Avengers.
Weisz appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live via Zoom, where the host introduced her as portraying Melina Vostokoff in Black Widow. Appearing taken aback by her accidentally revealing intro, Weisz said,“I think we’re not allowed to say Melina’s second name. I think we are prohibited from saying Melina’s second name. I think it’s a Marvel Cinematic Universe secret.”Jimmy Kimmel appeared to be every bit as surprised as Weisz, asking if the information he just read off his teleprompter was truly spoiling classified Marvel Studios intel. Weisz, a bit frazzled, replied, “I believe so.”
For 13 years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe built up the Infinity Stones as objects of grand power, capable of manipulating all existence when united. In Avengers: Infinity War, they turned half of the cosmos to dust; in Avengers: Endgame, the surviving heroes chased them down across time. In Loki, the Disney+ series released today, they’re nothing more than colorful paperweights.That’s a provocative idea from a studio that’s known for meticulously planning every step of its storytelling. And it’s a risky one: As much as Loki may buck tradition, it remains a Marvel show, watched by fans who celebrate that granular attention to the bigger picture. Waldron also worked on the script for the Doctor Strange sequel. The chances that this six-episode season eventually yields a tie-in to that Sacred MCU Timeline are high.
The cheeky gag befits a series about a trickster god, but it’s a surprising one for Marvel to pull. The studio has never dismissed its own storytelling this way—more than a dozen films insisted on the profundity of the stones. Yet in a single scene, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) learns that the objects he’s long sought—and by extension, the objects fans have long been conditioned to care about—are mere office supplies at the Time Variance Authority, the bureaucratic entity that has captured him. Not only that, but Loki’s told that the TVA controls time itself, and thus has “allowed” his every move. His actions have never been his own.
