It might actually be a problem. I know we 'comic fans' can live in a bit of a bubble sometimes and I think he looks fine, but I showed the trailer to my 'casual' wife and she immediately burst out laughing. She said he looks like a thumb.

The normal audience might have a hard time taking him seriously as a villain.

I honestly thought he looked better then ever. Maybe it's because I've always loved Annihilation and the other DnA cosmic stuff and Thanos looked a lot like that during that era but I never for a second thought he looked funny. Also: Memes are so f***ing stupid now. I honestly don't get the appeal anymore. Back when it was Picard facepalming and s*** it was fine. But it's all so damn lame these days.

Back in my day kids didn't even have those fancy smachy memes! *Rocks in chair*

The "normal" audience all adore Loki as a villain. The guy getting the Bam-Bam treatment from Hulk. I think we're good.

Same here. I half expect Hans Gruber to demand the return of his detonators.

I always went to “put out the Darkwing, put out the Darkwing.”

That's because he is eye candy for the Ladies/gay guys.

And we all know women and gay men make up the majority of the audience at a CBM, right? I mean, I'm not going to deny it's a factor in his overall popularity, but the point being discussed was "being taken seriously as a villain" which Loki still is after being absolutely humiliated in perhaps the most famous scene from Avengers 1.
