Tom Hiddleston recently commented on his return to the role of Loki for Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok.
Since Captain America: Civil War was released, many assumed that since Thor and the Hulk were absent from the Avengers’ family feud, they were taking it easy. Kicking back in Australia and sharing a flat with a guy named Darryl perhaps. However, with the God of Thunder’s third solo film fast approaching, details about his exploits while away from Earth have begun to emerge, and it doesn’t seem as though he’s taken the sabbatical he deserves after saving the world so many times. One character who’s not likely to make Thor’s job any easier is Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, who ostensibly stole the throne of Asgard from Odin at the end of Thor: The Dark World. Thor enlists the help of a certain sorcerer in the search for his father and brother in the after-credits sequence of Doctor Strange, so what happens next?
Loki actor Tom Hiddleston recently spoke to Erik Davis of Fandango during press for Kong: Skull Island. He commented on returning to the role, and what is in store once his character and Thor reunite:
“At the end of The Dark World, Loki is on the throne. At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a few questions, Loki is endearingly enigmatic about providing answers.”
Tom Hiddleston also spoke about the director of Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi, who until now has mostly been involved with indie projects like What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. He evidently brought a fresh take to the massive Thor project – namely, giving the stoic god a sense of humour:
“Taika Waititi is such a spirited, hilarious individual, and he and Chris [Hemsworth] became very fast friends. What was great for me to see was to see their friendship kind of blossom, and they brought out the best in each other, and started making stuff up, and I can confidently say right now that this will be the funniest depiction of the character of Thor that you’ve ever seen. I personally have known for almost ten years that Chris Hemsworth is hilarious.”
Hemsworth’s comedic talents were put to good use in 2016’s Ghostbusters, but it will be interesting to see that side of the character of Thor.
