Tom Hiddleston gave great villain as evil god Loki in the newly-released Thor , and we should expect to see more of him in The Avengers.
Joss Whedon’s comic adap, which unites Hulk, Thor, Captain America and Iron Man, is currently deep in production (despite script leak problems).
And according to Hiddleston, he’ll also be joining the superhero fray, reprising his role as Thor’s insidious brother Loki.
“Well, I think it was a plan from the get-go, but it wasn’t really dead-set until near the end of Thor ,” Hiddleston tells Vulture . “What was wonderful is that about four days after I wrapped on Thor , I went out for a cup of tea with Joss Whedon.
“We sat down at two o’clock in the afternoon, and we were still sitting there at six o’clock. He said, ‘Listen, you’ve lived with this guy for six months. I want you to spill the beans and tell me all of his dark secrets. Who is this guy? Why is he who he is?’”
Hiddleston goes on to add that his version of the character “accorded with Joss’ idea of the character, too”, before adding:
“I’m really so flattered that Marvel and Joss think I can take them all on. In Avengers , it’s going to be me versus seven of them, and I say ‘Good luck to them,’ frankly.”
