While Chris Hemsworth was missing for Captain America: Civil War, he will soon be returning to the big screen for Thor: Ragnarok.
Hemsworth was featured on a panel at Wizard World Philadelphia and discussed the upcoming feature film. Alongside him was his on-screen brother, Tom Hiddleston (Loki).
“Man, it is a lot of fun. I think tonally it’s a big shift in a great way, more than anything we’ve seen before. Um, Taika Waititi, the director, if you know any of his work, yeah, he’s just an incredible sort of comedic talent, um, a lot of heart in everything he does, um, but you know there’s a, it’s a very different Thor, it’s a different Loki, I think there’s a, we go off on another world that we haven’t experienced before. It’s fun you know, uh, but that’s me skirting around the issue because I can’t say too much.”
Hiddleston is equally excited to be returning to the fan favorite role of Loki. During Wizard World, he was asked “what we can expect from Loki this time around.”
“That’s a great question. I’m so, I have to say, I haven’t said, I’m so excited to be playing him again. I haven’t played him, I really haven’t played him properly since the end of 2012. I know Thor: The Dark World came out in 2013, but the last time I put the suit on was in 2012 if you exclude San Diego Comic Con. I don’t know if you would include that or not but uh”. At this point, someone in the audience yelled out “We love you!” to which he laughed and said, “Thank you.”
Alongside Hemsworth and Hiddleston will be Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.
