Thor via Frozen

Quick, can Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth sing?

I was watching Thor this evening (because nothing else was on) and it occurred to me—given my daughter's infatuation with Frozen—that one could adapt the live-action film to the animated feature's plot pretty neatly.

I mean, Loki is actually some kind of Frost Giant (really kind of a runt, though), right? And Elsa has these weird ice powers . . .

We could start with Loki and Thor doing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" and go from there.

And can't you totally picture Loki building an ice palace somewhere and going off to sulk? Not because he's afraid he'll hurt anybody, though. More that he's feeling left out or something. And it will take the Asgardian warriors, or maybe the Avengers, to haul his ass down to save Thor with some kind of act of true brotherly love.

The big question being: Will it work? Does Loki have any true brotherly love?


See, this is fun.

Seriously, though, one thing about Thor: How did Loki not know he was adopted? I mean, did he look around and honestly believe he belonged with all these hulking warriors? Even his mom is more manful and courageous than he is. Didn't that tell him something? It really shouldn't have been that much of a surprise. If anything, Loki should have been relieved there was a reason for him being so different. But I guess he was too busy worrying that his being adopted meant he had even less of a chance at the throne.

Loki, sweetie, "Let It Go."
