actual plot of the avengers
I love how you put a gun in most peoples hands and they suddenly turn into the epitome of manliness. Put a gun in Steve’s hands and he is like D8 wat do
Ugh what is this I don’t
where is my shield
I love you Steve.
how do you firearms MY WEAPON IS THE BRAVERY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
“Alright, that was a cheap joke. Okay, I admit it. And I’m gonna do it again, like four times in the movie, and I’m just gonna apologize up front. I like knocking Norse people out of frame. It makes me laugh. And I like things that make me laugh.”
Joss Whedon during the Avengers commentary
There was a great moment here. Tom started one of his lines, “I remember a shadow. Living in the shade of your-oh no, wait, I caught myself acting! Can we go again?” That will always be one of my favourite moments because Tom will always try to be his own bullshit meter because, ya know, he’s gotta go so big and he’s gotta make sure it doesn’t go too far.

“YOU LACK CONVICTION.”
This is a magnificent scene.
1) Because Coulson, period.
2) Because he figures Loki out first. “You lack conviction.” Loki lacks certainty on a deeper level. He lacks certainty that he is right and that this is what he wants, and he lacks a real moral grounding on which to fight for his cause. He has double-thought and deceived himself into thinking he is some dark savior. Deep down he still thinks he is the blue skinned monster that his family could not possibly have ever really loved. Put simply,Loki doesn’t even know what he wants. If he wants to win, WHAT he wants to win, HOW he wants to win it. He has this myopic determination, but that’s just a coping mechanism for being as internally confused as he was in “Thor.”
3) Coulson recognizes this RIGHT AFTER HE WATCHES THOR AND LOKI INTERACTING, and sees the “fun of it” leaving Loki’s face once he’s dropped Thor out in the metal death trap. Because Thor stopped fighting, and LET Loki drop him out that metal death trap. Because Thor knows Loki needs to feel like he’s won. Like a heartbroken child that needs to feel validated, even in the most twisted way. (If you don’t believe me, just look at the gifs of Thor’s face and the way he leans back from the glass and just stands there frowning in confusion, and, then, disappointed resignation).
4) THE FACT THAT LOKI NEEDS TO PAUSE TO JUSTIFY HIMSELF TO COULSON, A MERE “ANT,” WHICH GIVES COULSON THE OPENING TO SHOOT HIM, PROVES THAT COULSON IS RIGHT. LOKI IS INSECURE IN HIS MISSION AND ITS SUCCESS, AND SO HE HAS TO MANUFACTURE THE BOMBAST AND THE DEFENSIVE WORDS TO MAKE HIMSELF FEEL BETTER AS MUCH AS TO PROVE HIS ENEMY WRONG. Magnificent writing.
I AM SO DONE WITH THIS FANDOM
YOU MUSTN’T TELL THE MAN OF IRON!
oh hey you wanna know whats really really sad
They tortured THIS
he ended up
this post is aCTUALLY THE WORST
love this for so many reasons #thor probably just found out that bruce turns into the hulk #and he literally met bruce hours ago #and everyone else who has known bruce just sees him as the hulk #but thor sees him as bruce banner #not the monster #he knows bruce somewhere in there#that the hulk isn’t just a mindless beast #and to make this even more feelsy#this is just like how he treats loki #everyone else sees loki as a psychotic menace #and thor is the only one who tries to reason with him instead of just attacking #this is why i hate it when people say thor is just all muscle and looks #he is so much more #he’s the only one who’s given the ‘monsters’ a chance to redeem themselves #and to me #thats one of the most heroic things someone can ever do (via mycroft-queenofcake)
#I HAVE EMOTIONS AND I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO PUT THEM#just look at this #i mean loki know’s thor going to show up #and he says he’s not fond of what follows the lightning #but as soon as he sees him it’s that split second of emotion on his face that tells the whole story #it’s like in that one second he’s back to being a little kid again #a little kid who loves his brother and looks up to him and is happy to be with him#and it just kills me because tom’s acting is so spot on #and just #UGH #ALL THIS FROM LITERALLY TWO SECONDS IN THE FILM
FUCK YOU AND YOUR TAGS
I’M NOT SORRY TBH I HAVE EMOTIONS AND THIS IS WHERE I PUT THEM
THOSE FUCKING TAGS OH MY GOD IT’S LIKE MY EMOTIONS ARE WRITTEN OUT THERE ON DISPLAY FOR THE WORLD OF TOMBLR
