Thor’s voice is dripping
with sarcasm and Loki barely resists rolling his eyes. Thor is not
expecting an answer, of course, there is plenty on
his face; smudged war paint, blood, grime.
Loki has been caught staring and it would be prudent to say
enjoy seeing you with slave hair.” It tumbles out of his mouth,
untruthful and too harsh. The expression in Thor’s eyes darkens and
he takes a step forward.
test me,” Thor warns, voice pitched so deep it seems to be an echo
of the storms that Thor currently can’t call.
you will what?” Loki asks, lips wrapping around the last word. He
sees Thor glance down at them briefly. Interesting. Even with barely
concealed rage in him, held back only by circumstance – they both
need to get to Asgard as soon as possible after all – there’s still
a flicker of something sensual between them.
doesn’t reply; he doesn’t need to, he basically radiates unspoken
threats. The feeling of it sends something uncertain through Loki,
forcing him to suppress a shiver. He does not, in fact, enjoy the
look of Thor’s hair, chopped and shaved in such an uncouth manner. It
changes his face, along with the thick beard, making him ever so
slightly foreign to Loki’s eyes, for he’s been long-haired his entire
life, even as a toddler. Loki vaguely remembers they both were, locks
flowing freely around their faces as they ran towards newest trouble
through the golden halls of the palace.

ridiculous to be put out of sorts by something as silly as hair.
brother,” Loki says as evenly as he can, making sure his voice
doesn’t waver over the word. “It’s a long way home.”
The film’s post-credit scene saw Doctor Strange meet with Thor
who was on the hunt for his brother, and the magical hero was quick to
take a few shots at the devious Frost Giant. Later this year, fans will
likely get to see how Doctor Strange does with Loki when Thor: Ragnarok makes its way to theaters, but don’t expect the latter to be impressed by Strange’s gifts.
According to Tom Hiddleston, Loki will be rather apathetic towards Doctor Strange’s mystical powers.
Recently, the actor sat down for an interview with IGN where
he was asked about Loki’s reaction to characters like Doctor Strange.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, much of what has kept Loki unique is
his magical gifts, so the entrance of beings like Strange and even Hela
could be a threat to Loki. However, Hiddleston doesn’t seem to think
that’s the case.
“I think he probably dismisses Strange,” Hiddleston said about Loki.
“Yes, his sorcery is very impressive, but Loki’s been doing that for
century so who cares? But Hela is a different beast and full of
surprises. [She] actually might have been someone with whom he actually
got along, but the circumstances have changed.”
As for what those circumstances are, fans will have to wait and see.
So far, it looks like Hela will force Loki to work alongside his brother
out of self-interest and desire to stay alive. Hiddleston has hinted
Hela would be one of the main factors which reunited the brothers in Thor: Ragnarok.
“At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a lot of questions,
and Loki - true to form - is not that forthcoming with many answers. But
hammers are involved and the stakes are raised,” Hiddleston told IGN.
“Cate Blanchett is playing the goddess of death who brings
destruction in her wake. It’s the kind of destruction that both Thor and
Loki have never seen, on a scale of terror they’ve never ever seen
before. So, they fall back on their brotherhood fractured though it is
to see what they can do to stop her.
