Tom Hiddleston Teases Next Loki And Hulk Encounter; Addresses James Bond Rumors


Over the past few months, Tom Hiddleston seemed a little hesitant about returning as Loki in Thor: Ragnarok, which was probably to avoid too many questions regarding the movie. However, now that Marvel Studios have officially confirmed that the character will once again be back in the next installment of the Thor series, we’re probably going to start hearing more from him from now.

In fact, Hiddleston recently appeared alongside Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, at a Wizard World Philadelphia panel and couldn’t hide how excited he is to be reprising the role of Loki in Ragnarok and exploring how his attitudes have changed since the last time we saw him in 2013’s Thor: The Dark World:

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, so what I’m interested in really is how his attitudes have changed. While Thor was away with his buddies fighting a computer, and uh, I’ll think you’ll see it’s, there is all sorts of interesting things. I’m four yeas older and Chris is four years older  and there will just be new things we find in it. The most exciting thing about him is that he is always a trickster. It is trying to find new ways for him to be mischievous, because I love doing that, and I hope you guys love within that.

We also know that The Hulk will be appearing in the movie, but the last time He and Loki met things didn’t end well for the latter and it sounds like he is still pissed about that:

“And lets not forget that its no secret that um, that the Hulk shows up in Ragnarok, and um, 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 um, yeah, it’s fun, you’ll see.”

The actor was also asked about the most recent James Bond rumors, because you obviously can’t have a Tom Hiddleston interview without him being asked about possibly playing the character. Here’s what he had to say this time:

“I’m sorry to disappoint you everybody.  I don’t think that announcement is coming. But I’m very gratified to hear the enthusiasm. There’s not much that I can say that I haven’t already said, but I know… your guess is as good as mine to be honest.”

What do you guys think? Would you like to see Tom Hiddleston as the next 007 or would you prefer someone else? Sound-off your thoughts in the comment section below.
