Tom Hiddleston on The Future of Loki in The MCU and KONG: SKULL ISLAND
Tom Hiddleston obviously loves to play Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he is perfect in the role! The last time we saw Loki was in Thor: The Dark World, when it was revealed at the end that he was posing as Odin. There's no word on when we'll see the character on the big screen next, but I think it's safe to say he'll pop up in Thor: Ragnarok. You can't have a Thor film and not include Loki! While talking to ComingSoon in a recent interview, Hiddleston was asked if he plans to keep Loki a multi-layered/sympathetic character or if he's he going to go full-blown supervillain. The actor gave the following response:
"You know, I don’t know. I think I won’t be able to help it if I ever play him again, and I just don’t know when that’s gonna happen, if that’s gonna happen. I would never lose his dimension, but it’s so interesting. I’ve talked with Chris Hemsworth, how those characters have changed as we’ve changed. It’s five years ago since I played him for the first time. That’s a long time ago. So who knows what I’ll be cooking up!"
If I ever play him again? What does that mean!? Is there a chance Hiddleston won't play Loki again? I'm sure he's just playing coy. The guy has a multi-film deal with Marvel, he's got to come back as Loki! He's just gotta! Right? I'm not worried.
The actor goes on to talk about his upcoming film project Kong: Skull Island, and when asked the question, "Why would the islanders build this giant wall to keep King Kong in, but build a GIANT, KING KONG-SIZED DOOR for him to get out of?" Hiddleston laughed and said:
"There will be an answer to that question, yeah. Yes. Jordan Vogt-Roberts has a really interesting take on the whole thing, and it’s really new and original. It doffs its cap to the mythology but also takes it into a new place which I hope you will find exciting."
Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled to be released on November 3rd, 2017, while Kong: Skull Island will arrive on March 10th, 2017.
