What with all these Bond rumors, his recent star turn in The Night Manager, and popping up all over the place on dance floors, in guitar stores, and on stage, we’d almost forgotten Tom Hiddleston was due to reprise his role of Loki.
Thankfully he hasn’t, and at the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con on Sunday (June 5), he teased fans by answering a question as Thor’s meddlesome brother. Tom was on a panel with Chris Hemsworth (Thor) when one fan asked a question about the slight tiff (to put it mildly) between Captain America and Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War.
At first Chris thought Thor would be unimpressed, but then Tom stepped in, channeling the God of Mischief:
Despite not being included in Civil War, the two Norse gods return next year in hotly-anticipated Thor: Ragnarok.
Chris had this to say about the upcoming movie: “I think tonally it’s a big shift in a great way, more than anything we’ve seen before. Taika Waititi, the director, if you know any of his work, he’s just an incredible sort of comedic talent a lot of heart in everything he does. It’s a very different Thor, it’s a different Loki; we go off on another world that we haven’t experienced before. It’s fun, but that’s me skirting around the issue because I can’t say too much.”
Tom, on the other hand, can—or if he can’t, he said it anyway. He hinted Loki might fight Hulk again: “It’s no secret that the Hulk shows up in Ragnarok, and the last time Loki and Hulk were in the same room didn’t go very well for Loki. So, he’s got a few chips on his shoulder, but it’s fun, you’ll see.”
Thor: Ragnarok is due to hit theaters on November 3, 2017.Read More
