When looking over the recent trailers for Thor: The Dark World, the taunting voice of Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston, as all Anglo readers should well know) and his quote about Thor being desperate to ask him for help has always sung out as a bit of a moment. You could picture the proud and mischievous fellow standing proudly, sneering at his heroic sibling in his funny horned hat and generally acting the imperious snoot.
Well it seems that’s not how it pans out after all. As this new preview clip from the movie proves, the Loki we see is a little bit lost and more than a little bit beaten after his exertions in New York with the Avengers. He’s in a cell, a shadow of his former self, with only that queasy smile to remind you that this is a fellow with a particularly sly wit, a fellow who will do some serious damage, given half a chance.
Here’s the original trailer, which has more of the old Loki in it:
