10 Things You Need To Know Before Seeing Thor: The Dark World
LokiWho Is He? Like Thor, Loki is an Asgardian of legend, but has a much darker, more complicated background. Born as a son to the Frost Giant King Laufey, he was kidnapped as a prize of war by King Odin of Asgard and raised as one of Odinís sons Ė never knowing the truth about his father. Upon learning of his lineage, Loki was driven mad with rage. He became not only obsessed with the idea of power, but also jealous of everything his brother, Thor, had been given and began a campaign to destroy it all.
How Does He Fit? As seen in The Avengers, Lokiís plans to try and take over our world failed thanks to the titular heroes, and at the end of the film he was put in handcuffs (and a muzzle) and brought back to Asgard where he would face judgment for his many crimes. At the beginning of Thor: The Dark World we actually get to see these proceedings, ruled over by Odin. Naturally, things donít go particularly well for the green-clad villain and he is thrown in prison for eternity. But can a prison cell really contain the God of Mischief for that long?
