Collider got the chance to sit down with Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and ask him about the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. With Kong: Skull Island releasing this weekend, they asked Hiddleston what it was like moving from a monster movie to playing Loki again, as the character is quite monstrous.
“Loki is a God of Mischief. Whether he’s a monster is not for me to say.”
So while Tom Hiddleston isn’t sold on Loki being a monster, he certainly falls in line with being a trickster. Yet while Loki’s character has been around awhile, Taika Waititi is planning to shake up the Thor films with the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. Tom Hiddleston spoke a bit about what it was like to work with Waititi and the direction he was bringing to the film.
“It was fantastic! He’s a wonderful director. He’s very spirited and light-hearted. Yeah, as a director, you can’t help but leave a fingerprint of who you are on the film you make, and Taika is a very warm-hearted, generous spirit who loves to make people laugh. I think you’ll definitely see humor in Ragnarok.”
Yet while we’re going to be seeing humor, I have a feeling it will be to largely balance out the grim doom of the apocalypse. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Tom Hiddleston and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
