Tom Hiddleston Talks THOR: RAGNAROK and Teases Fight Scene
I know the standalone Thor films are considered the bottom of the barrel of Marvel's oeuvre, but I’ve freakin’ enjoyed them! The Thor films have been great fun, and director Taika Waititi is about to take Thor to a whole new level of awesomeness with Thor: Ragnarok, in which we will see the God of Thunder team up with the Hulk to take on Hela. Of course, there’s going to be a lot more to the story than that, and you can read some of the information and rumors regarding what we might see in the film here.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tom Hiddleston talked about his time on the set of the film so far and teased a fight scene with Thor saying:
“It is actually a fight day tomorrow. I don’t think I’m fighting specifically him, however. Spoiler alert! But that’s all I will tell you. I’ve been here for 10 days. We’re really just at the beginning. I think they officially started filming just last week. It’s great. I’m having such a good time. Taika Waititi is brilliant, and his vision for his Thor film is so full of wit and humor and drama. He’s really been so attentive over the screenplay. I’m so excited. It’s a hell of a cast. It’s got quite a lineup.”
If Loki isn’t fighting Thor, who could he be fighting? Perhaps the Hulk? I just assume Thor and the Hulk will fight each other before they team up. In fact, that’s one of the rumors that we’ve heard, and that fight apparently ties in with elements from Planet Hulk. Hiddleston goes on to say that as of right now, the main actors on the set include himself, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, and Tessa Thompson. So I guess there’s a chance Thor could be fighting Thompson’s Valkyrie.
“There are some heavy hitters in the lineup, and not everyone is here yet. It’s Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson, and myself. We’ve got some others coming. Thus far, it’s really fun. And also, it’s been three years since I’ve played. I think I last wore the costume at Comic-Con in 2013. It was 2012 when we wrapped The Dark World. It’s just been a long time, and to don the black hair and leather and all of Loki’s stuff is good fun.”
This could be the last Marvel film where we see Hiddleston in the role of Loki. I hope not, but that’s what the actor previously led us to believe. Thor: Ragnarok is set to open in theaters on November 3rd, 2017. Hopefully we get some more information on the film during the Marvel panel at Comic-Con next week!
