Minute Thirty-One: From The Meager Might of Earth to The Other’s Concession

In the thirty-first minute of The Avengers

Why does it feel like this scene was shot so strangely? The positions of Loki and The Other feel odd. Or maybe it’s that way they choose to shoot the scene with the actors rotating around the set, not looking at each other. The script here also feels a bit clumsy. They’re really working to establish this butting of heads between these two characters, but it feels very scripted. What’s the relationship between The Other and Thanos? And Loki? When The Other says Thanos gave Loki ancient knowledge, what does he mean? And how does this location actually work? Oh – and we learn that The Other can move really fast. And wha’ts up with his sixth finger? Tune in!
