Tom Hiddleston Talks About Loki’s Role in Thor 3

Tom Hiddleston has been a busy man over these past few years but his portrayal of Loki is clearly a role no one can forget.

Fans of Marvel have been waiting for four years to see Hiddleston’s Loki since Thor: The Dark World.

They have been questioning what is going to happen next ever since Loki took over his father’s throne in disguise as Odin himself in Asgard back in 2013.

Although Loki is known for his deceptive tricks, even Thor was fooled by his brother and returned to Earth to fight Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

So, naturally, fans are excited to see what has become of Asgard after being ruled by Loki for four years.

They only have to wait a little longer because Thor: Ragnarok is coming this November with a huge storyline.

While promoting Kong: Skull Island, Tom Hiddleston spoke with Fandango and was, of course, asked about the return of Loki.

“At the end of The Dark World, Loki is on the throne.”

“At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a few questions and Loki is endearingly enigmatic about providing answers.” Hiddleston said.

We’re not surprised Thor has a few questions, we do too and we can’t wait any longer!

So, while his answer is seemingly vague, it does give a hint as to what direction the film is going to go in.

However, the post-credit scene in Doctor Strange offers even more as the Sorcerer Supreme meets Thor and decides to help the god find both his father and brother.

But how they plan to do that won’t be revealed until Thor: Ragnarok hits theatres in November.

However, Hiddleston revealed that Loki isn’t going to be too impressed with Doctor Strange’s powers, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

In an interview with IGN, the actor said that Loki would be somewhat apathetic towards the new Marvel character Doctor Strange.

“I think he probably dismisses Strange. Yes, his sorcery is very impressive, but Loki’s been doing that for century so who cares?”

“But Hela is a different beast and full of surprises. [She] actually might have been someone with whom he actually got along, but the circumstances have changed.” Hiddleston said about Cate Blanchett’s new role.

Hiddleston hinted that Blanchett’s Hela is one of the reasons why the brothers join forces in Ragnarok.

“Cate Blanchett is playing the goddess of death who brings destruction in her wake.”

“It’s the kind of destruction that both Thor and Loki have never seen, on a scale of terror they’ve never ever seen before.”

“So, they fall back on their brotherhood fractured though it is to see what they can do to stop her.” he explained.

It all sounds very intriguing and mysterious so we need November to hurry up!

Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins are also returning with Mark Ruffalo reprising his role as the Hulk.

Karl Urban (Skurge), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) and Jeff Goldblum (the Grandmaster) are also set to appear.
