Loki Does his Thing on an April Fool’s Day Clip from Thor: Tales of Asgard

6 Comments

A fresh clip from Marvel Animation and Lionsgate Home Entertainment’s original direct-to-DVD animated movie, “Thor: Tales of Asgard”, which features a young Thor being all arrogant and young Thor-ish. In this clip, Loki, aka the God of Mischief, does what he does best to the wolf Fenris in the Port Hole Pub while Thor and the Warriors Three look on.

Before he ever lifted his mighty hammer, there was the sword. Fantastic journeys beckon from the mysterious nine realms. Places of dark mists and fiery voids. Of winged creatures and giants in the ice. And the most alluring quest of all – the search for the legendary Lost Sword of Surtur. Hungry for adventure, Thor secretly embarks on the journey of a lifetime, joined by his loyal brother Loki, whose budding sorcery equips him with just enough magic to conjure up trouble, along with the Warriors Three – a band of boastful travelers reluctant to set sail on any adventure that might actually be dangerous. But what starts out as a harmless treasure hunt quickly turns deadly, and Thor must now prove himself worthy of the destiny he covets by saving Asgard itself.

    But no sneak peek at next film. I don’t even think they have one. Sad realy. I liked their last few releases. Much better than some of the other stuf they put out. “Planet Hulk” was awesome, as was “Hulk Vs.” and I still say “Dr. Strange” actually made the chracter kind of cool. “Invincable Iron Man” was the weak link to me, while the “Ultimate Avengers” films were decent, and I liked the idea of “Next Avengers” and though it would’ve made a good show with out the contrstaints of continuity.

      I still haven’t seen Hulk Vs., Dr. Strange or Invincible Ironman. As for The Next Avengers, I thought that was really dumb. I got the premise but like you said their contiuity along with the kid oriented material didn’t reel me in. I loved both Ultimate Avenger films though. This one has a similar art style as the Next Avengers which I’m not crazy about either. All in all I won’t be too upset about not seeing this one.

        You need to loosen up man. I swear if it isn’t exactly like the comics you just can’t get into it it seems. Were you a fan of “X-Men: Evolution,” or “Teen Titans” either? I know you said you weren’t a fan of “The Batman.” I’m of a mind where the comics are the comics, the cartoons are the toons, and the films are the films. The films and toons draw inspiration from the comics but aren’t obligated to tell the same stories. As long as there’s some homage to the original story i’m good, like what they did on the 90′s “Spiderman” for “Secret Wars,” or in the 90′s “Iron Man” they did a version of “Armor Wars.”

        As for the animated films I really liked the characters they created in “Next Avengers” and really woulda liked to see more. My daughter loved it too. I think that may be why i can watch these other shows, because the little kid in me is being kept very much alive by my daughter. But anyway Dr. Strange I liked. It was well written and grounded the magic in a kind of reality that made sense. Invincable Iron Man was such a let down. I was waiting and waiting for this epic battle that just never happened. I didn’t even mind the changes they made to the Mandarin, actually I liked it. Hulk Vs. is just great. Though it coulda been a bit longer each short was spot on. The Wolverine one is a personal favorite cause it’s got Deadpool’s first real animated appearance. And Nolan North knocked it out of the park. HThe Thor one was pretty damned cool too.

          I guess your right. I do tend to focus too much on the original material. The thing is the origins and source material are important! Too often people seem to take drastic liberties with these characters and cannon. I can see if changes are made to adapt from comics to film but comics to cartoon? I realize that there are only so many ways to keep telling the same stories and all but some of the stuff that akes it to TV and DVD these days is not that good. You mentioned Teen Titans and X-Men:Evolution. They are two of my least favorite cartoons. Lol. TT for the art style (I’m not a fan of the Animee stuff) and “Evolution” because of the absolute disregard for the comic continuity. I understand that it was a stand alone series and it was targeting a younger demographic however, it still didn’t do it for me. I really need to be compelled either visually or with the story and with both of those it just didn’t happen.

            See then you really missed out. I actuallt think taking the chance by taking liberties is a more creative route than just adapting the original source material. Evolution had some great storylines that were inspired by the comics but weren’t slaves to them. Their version of Apocalypse was great and the new takes on the characters was refreshing. Teen Titans did an amazing job adapting the Tera and Trigon stories. I’m a huge comic fan (if you hadn’t noticed) but I’ve read and reread the comics stories so when its time for a toon or film I like something different as long as the aesthitcs are there I’m good (The Batman, X-men Evo, Iron Man Armored Adventures), but don’t go changing shit fot the sake of changing it (X-men Origins: Wolverine’s Deadpool for example). But to each their own.

            Sent on the go.

    Also realized I didn’t comment on the clip. This defintiely looks pretty good. I like the characterization, and I have a feeling that the Warriors Three will steal the film.
