Loki Movie Petition Emerges; Nears 20,000 Signatures

Uh…..

Okay.

It seems that somewhere on the internet, Loki‘s army Loki fangirls have struck again.

If you’ve been paying attention as of late, you know that, along with this petition, several others have emerged. Main examples? The Batfleck petition and the Fifty Shades petition.

Anyways, Tom Hiddleston/Loki fans apparently want Marvel to stop everything and start working on a solo movie for the aformentioned villain.

Yeah.

Let’s establish something really quick though:

Webster defines the word “petition” as:

-a written document that many people sign to show that they want a person or organization to do or change something

-an earnest request

-I’m going to be the asshole to add the words “a worthy cause”.

This is not a worthy cause (and neither are the other two either).

I understand people’s love for the character. I really do. But he’s already appeared in three movies (I’m counting Thor: The Dark World already) and the quickest way to kill a interesting, yet complex character like Loki is through over-exposure.

Don’t believe me? Then please see the 5 Wolverine-led X-Men movies (save X-Men: First Class, thank God) and tell me you are not sick of f*cking seeing Wolverine be the center of every thing.

Yeah Bub. We're kinda sick of seeing you.

Yeah Bub. We’re kinda sick of seeing you.

Anyways, here’s an excerpt from the petition (Via Change.org):

“We feel Loki…due to the astounding following both the character and actor have earned as a result of the Marvel films, more than warrants further exploration of his story,” the petition attests. “We believe such an endeavor would not only be profitable and successful, but provide a larger view for general audiences of the incredibly complex and diverse personality a well-known villain of the Marvel universe is gifted with.”

Alright.

Let’s just say we go with this for, like, thirty seconds.

Who the f*ck would be in this movie (other than him)? What the f*ck would he be doing? What would this movie even be about? I mean, in my mind, all I see is Loki monologuing for two odd hours and do you really want to subject the world to that? Seriously?

Even Loki doesn’t understand your logic.

And furthermore, Loki is such a good character because he has other characters (Thor, the other Avengers, etc, etc) to play off of. If you take a dynamic like that out of the mix, Loki loses his appeal.

Lastly, if Marvel was crazy enough to go along with this, that means that some other movie that they had planned ultimately had to be scrapped or pushed to the wayside, especially since they basically have their sh*t planned all the way through 2016 (and probably 2017. Who the f*ck knows?). And you better believe that MCU fans and Marvel comic fans are NOT having that.

Yup.

So, as much as I love Tom Hiddleston/Loki, this is what I say to that idea:

If this idea was for a one-shot, maybe. As for a feature-length film? Nah.

And for the love of God, STOP using Change.org for these things.
