The prologue of the chapter “Journey Into Mystery” (1×05) from Loki (Michael Waldron, 2021), the Serie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe about Thor’s troublesome little brother (Tom Hiddleston) that derives from Avengers: Endgame (Joe and Anthony Russo, 2019), is a joyous audiovisual composition. A haunting double rotation shot that stays in a Dutchman continues with two beautiful transitions to a traveling aerial, all propped up with a powerful snippet of the soundtrack composed by Natalie Holt (Knightfall).
After the sequence shot with which the director Kate herron (Sex education) ends the episode “Lamentis” (1×03), what he offers us in this beginning is revealed as the highlight of his work on this Disney plus adventure so far. We cannot complain.
Next, they provide us with several answers, in two different contexts, to the questions that have been haunting our minds for a whole week since we saw the exciting events of “The Nexus Event” (1×04), including post-credits scene. Y eye-catching images of pure ambient fantasy marvelous story, with various cultural hints, some easier to identify than others, and the variations of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that are typical of the same premise of Loki.
The half gas humor of ‘Loki’
After a perfectly logical turn but unexpected and some other predictable in their circumstances and motivations, we have interesting dialogues between different characters and a quite necessary intimate and a completely credible group awakening of Gods of Deception.
Also, gratifying and emotional reunions that, in short, eliminate the tragedy of the previous chapter and, consequently, what affected us. But there is no escape. On the other hand, with jokes he does what he can the screenwriter Michael waldron (Doctor Strange 2: The Multiverse of Insanity), but it never reaches the levels of comic nonsense from previous installments of the superhero saga as Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 or Thor: Ragnarok (James Gunn, Taika Waititi, 2017); nor in this episode of Loki nor in the whole series, it must be said.
On LokiMarvel Studios’ fickle villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) reprises his role as the God of Deception in a new series that takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Kate Herron is directing it and Michael Waldron is the main screenwriter.
If executive producer Kevin Feige, puppeteer of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, really wants viewers to spice up a lot with one of these television fictions, he should hire Gunn or Waititi for them.
An epic ending with a luxury actor
The last stretch of “Journey Into Mystery” is intense, with an undisguised epic supported by the choirs of the score and the grateful opportunity to achieve “A glorious purpose” for the classic Loki, who embodies the veteran Richard E. Grant. We have seen this recognizable Swazibritish actor before as the Tom Oakley of The Hollywood Game, Dr. Jack Seward in Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Robert Altman, Francis Ford Coppola, 1992) or the Larry Lefferts of The Age of Innocence (Martin Scorsese, 1993).
And Stephen Moon in a Frasier (David Angell, Peter Casey and David Lee, 1993-2004), Dr. Simeon of Doctor who (Sydney Newman, since 2005), Michael Heseltine in The woman of iron (Phyllida Lloyd, 2011) or the Jasper of Girls (Lena Dunham, 2012-2017).

And it is to the daring behavior of his character that we owe him a great deal. the force with which it ends “Journey Into Mystery”, which is to say that, thanks to him and how Kate Herron elaborates the scene, the chapter returns to the degree of audiovisual satisfaction of the prologue. And so they urge us to wait for the resolution of the main mystery in the next installment.
