THOR: THE DARK WORLD (Tom Hiddleston Speaks)


Tom Hiddleston spoke about his role as Loki, in the upcoming Marvel sequel, Thor: The Dark World.   After starring as the trickster in both Thor and The Avengers, Hiddleston talks at length about the character’s complexity, how he feels about director Alan Taylor’s vision for Thor 2 and what fans can expect to see in the sequel. 

After receiving his fan award for “Hottest Actor” from the Total Film Hotlist Awards (via CBM), Hiddleston talked in depth about playing Loki in Thor: The Dark World and here is what he had to say:

Its not concept art, its some Awesome Fan Art!! Loki in Game of Thrones
On the topic of Loki’s mental state:

“Underneath the steely cold veneer of his trickster charm is a certain vulnerability and sensitivity – the wounded fragility of an outcast brother and son. His mind IS a box of cats though! But I love him.”

Hiddleston also talks about the fun of playing the Asgardian antagonist:

“The best thing about being Loki is that he is my diametric opposite. Physically, he is a photo negative of who I am. Loki is dark and pale, and I am light and fair. Also spiritually I am not much like him either. Yet I feel an incredible freedom in playing him.

“He is a combination of mercurial intellectual ability, emotional ambiguity, rakish charm, charisma and provocative wit. He has a wicked inclination to mischief, underneath which is a well of spiritual pain. Both these aspects are central to his depth as a character: his unashamed and perverse delight in creating chaos; and his capacity for raw emotional expression.

“And – as my American friends tell me – he’s kind of a badass! He’s one of the richest, most rewarding, most fun characters I’ve ever played.”

Hiddleston then comments on what fans can expect from him in Thor: The Dark World:

“I don’t want to give too much away. But I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed. Alan Taylor’s vision of Thor 2 is utterly brilliant. The journey continues in the most epic dimension and proportion imaginable. It’s very, very exciting.”

Im really hoping that Talyor gives us a Thor film that will be like a Game of Thrones on steroids, the image at the top of Loki proves that, that balance can certainly be struck. I have faith that this will be a real cool classic film!!
