* ShipTease: Loki takes a special delight in exchanging "pleasantries" with Sif, maintains lingering eye contact with her, and even calls her "ravishing" at one point (though he says this to Thor in Sif's form, not Sif herself). Of course, this is [[{{Troll}} Loki]] we're talking about here, who ''loves'' to get under people's skin. It could also be considered a nod to the myths where those two were said to have had an affair.
** Similarly, after threatening to "pay her a visit" in ''Thor'', Loki finally meets Jane. It goes about as well as expected at first - she slaps him for New York, and [[{{Troll}} he says he likes her]]. But by the end of the film, he shields her from harm with his own body. Twice.

*** Saving Jane. Did he finally change for the better and save the love of his brother's life? Or did he just want to make sure Thor leaves Asgard and joins Jane on Midgard instead?
*** [[spoiler:Loki-as-Odin allowing Thor to pursue his own agenda as guardian of the Nine Realms. Did he do it out of good will as much as convenience, did getting Odin out of the picture temporarily sate his need for vengeance, or did Thor hand him a major gift (a way to get him out of the picture without being seen as dicking over the savior of the Nine Realms) without knowing it?]] Another option could be that [[spoiler: Loki-as-Odin is trying not to blow his cover, so everything he said to Thor in that scene is what Odin would have said - i.e. real!Odin is wise enough to understand what his son is saying about being unfit to handle TheChainsOfCommanding etc.]] Another possibility is that his chat with Thor on the flying boat ("I wish I could trust you") really opened his eyes, and he knows that if Thor returns to Asgard with things as-is, everyone's going to prison or "the axe". So at least a partial motive (or rationalization) could be his intention to do his reconciled brother a good turn. Considering that he pardoned people (i.e., Thor's friends) who had offended him constantly throughout his life...

** Excluding [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk Betty Ross]], Jane Foster possibly has the least amount of fans for a heroic female character in the MCU (yes, even Sif and ''Darcy'', who received way less focus and screentime than her) for her [[StrangledByTheRedString unbelievable]] romance with Thor that [[RomanticPlotTumor brought down the story]] and negatively affects the quality of the film, and also flattened her own character, keeping her entertainingly pathological obsession with her research from the last movie to a minimum in favor of her relationship drama. The fact that a lot of other interesting characters and plot points from the comic was [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter short-changed]] in exchange for her did ''not'' help. Also not helping her cause is that, to some fans, Jane is simply not that interesting as a character, as she lacks the career woman verve of Pepper Potts (from ''Film/IronMan''), the bite of Peggy Carter (from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''), and of course the fire of Lady Sif and the steely-eyed DeadpanSnarker charm of Natasha Romanoff/the ComicBook/BlackWidow. As said above, this ''could'' have been completely avoided by giving her love of science an emphasis, but Selvigg is given nearly all of the scientific importance instead, leaving Jane with almost nothing.
