Loki has become one of the most popular Marvel film characters - brought to life magnificently by Tom Hiddleston over the last couple of years.
Hiddleston is reprising the role of Loki this week as "Thor: The Dark World" is set to hit the big screen: the first Thor movie since we were introduced to these characters back in 2011.
To celebrate the release of the movie and the return of this fantastic villain, we take a look at some of the best Loki moments from "Thor" to "Avengers Assemble" to "Thor: The Dark World".
Loki vs. The Hulk (Avengers Assemble)
"Avengers Assemble" was a monster hit when it was released back in the summer of 2012 - and many of the film’s most memorable movies featured Loki.
One of those scenes is when Loki comes face to face with the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in the Stark Tower in New York. Loki tries playing the ‘I am a god!’ line, but that doesn’t go down too well with the Hulk.
Loki finds himself on the receiving end of a Hulk hissy fit and is given a bit of a kicking - it is still one of the funniest scenes in the movie.
Loki Argues With Odin (Thor)
We were introduced to the character of Loki for the first time when "Thor" hit the big screen back in 2011. On the surface, he seems like an Asgardian prince, but his father has been hiding a secret about who Loki really is.
It turns out that Loki is the offspring of the Frost Giants - enemies of the Asgardians - and was taken by Odin (Anthony Hopkins) after they had won their battle against their enemy.
Loki faces off again Odin in the weapon’s vault, as he demands to know who he really is. When the truth is revealed and Loki learns his life has been a lie, his descent into darkness begins.
This scene really does show where it all start to unravel for this character as his heart is truly broken when he learns these revelations. During their argument, Odin falls into the Odinsleep and Loki takes up the throne.
"This Is Unlike You, Brother" (Thor: The Dark World)
At the beginning of "Thor: The Dark World", we see Loki in prison for the crimes that he committed in "Avengers Assemble". However, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is forced to break him out of jail, as he needs his help to find a secret way out of Asgard.
As you might expect Loki basks in the fact that Thor has not only breaking the rules, but has come to him for help.
This scene shows Loki at his comic and mischievous best - not to mention there is a totally fantastic cameo!
"You Mewling Quim!" (Avengers Assemble)
Another memorable Loki moment from "Avengers Assemble" is when he comes face to face with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). These two characters are the ultimate manipulators and in this scene, they try to outmaneuver and outsmart one another.
‘You mewling quim!’ is one of the most memorable lines in the entire film as Loki delivers it with a real menace - believing that he has won their little exchange.
However, Black Widow is not the woman out of her depth as he presumes as he inadvertently reveals his plan - would loved to have seen these character go head to head more often in this film.
"This Usually Works" (Avengers Assemble)
Another fantastic and quotable moment from Loki in "Avengers Assemble" comes towards the end of the film when he comes face to face with Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).
Stark explains to Loki that the Avengers are getting ready to defend the earth and that they will hold Loki responsible for anything and everything that happens.
Loki gets ready to enslave Stark using the power of the Tesseract, but the device in Stark’s chest stops him from being turned - resulting in Stark delivering a quip about performance issues.
The list is pretty decent overall, but I'm quite miffed that it was only limited to just seven moments (like wtf?), and the fact that they left out this iconic gem of a "side eye/bitch please" look on Loki's face when he watched Thor and Odin argue...
Also, super excited at the fact that I'm gonna be seeing "Thor: The Dark World" this October 30 before any of y'all! Early screening, betches! ;)
