I was pretty excited to hear that Tom Hiddleston will be back as Loki in Thor 3. Not only because I love that actor and that character, but because Loki adds some much needed humor to what could just as well be a boring action movie. Chris Hemsworth's Thor has to be all manly and leadership-y, but Loki gets to be sassy as hell—and he takes advantage of that. They don't call him the God of Mischief for nothing because he has quite the antagonizing mouth on him. It's, as Loki would say, glorious.
Unfortunately, Hiddleston is not reprising his role in the upcoming Avengers 2, so we have to wait until the third Thor installment to premiere before we get to see Loki in all his glory. But the bad news is that Thor: Ragnarok doesn't come out until July 2017. I don't like this business of having to wait two and a half years for some more sassy Loki. I know he'll be worth the wait, but still.
Since we can't have Loki in our immediate future, let's celebrate his return to the Asgardian world by remembering his 12 sassiest quotes. Gotta love this character.
"YOU'LL KILL ME? EVIDENTLY THERE WILL BE A LINE."
Only Loki would joke about being threatened by more than one person.
"GIVE OR TAKE 5,000 YEARS."
Look at his smug smile he gives after he showed Odin up. (Equally awesome is that frown in the third image. He does not like being compared to humans.)
This Avengers quote is priceless because it perfectly showcases Loki's attitude.
"HITTING DOES NOT SOLVE EVERYTHING."
Loki was basically majored in How to Taunt Thor: 101. (P.S. Jane might agree to disagree on this quote.)
"OOH, IT BURNS YOU TO HAVE COME SO CLOSE."
This is the Loki version of "oh, snap!"
"IF IT'S ALL THE SAME TO YOU I'LL HAVE THAT DRINK NOW."
So what if he just got pulverized by The Hulk? Loki isn't gonna let his sassy attitude get bruised.
"NOW IF YOU’LL EXCUSE ME, I HAVE TO DESTROY JOTUNHEIM."
You know, NBD.
"BORN TO BE A KING, I ASK ONE THING IN RETURN: A FRONT SEAT TO WATCH EARTH BURN."
And, like, some popcorn to snack on while he watches.
"YOU KNOW THIS IS WONDERFUL! THIS A TREMENDOUS IDEA! LET'S STEAL THE BIGGEST, MOST OBVIOUS SHIP IN THE UNIVERSE AND ESCAPE IN THAT!"
The sarcasm is real.
"ODIN CONTINUES TO BRING ME NEW FRIENDS. HOW THOUGHTFUL!"
Loki is not a fan of his fellow prisoners.
"I CAN FEEL THE RIGHTEOUSNESS SURGING. HEY, YOU WANNA HAVE A ROUSING DISCUSSION ABOUT TRUTH, HONOR, PATRIOTISM? GOD BLESS AMERICA!"
Loki's Captain America impression is all I want in life.
"THERE ARE NO MEN LIKE ME."
You've got that right. But I'm not complaining, and neither are the rest of Hiddleston's fans. Long live sassy Loki.
