Tom Hiddleston Teases Hulk and Loki Confrontation in THOR: RAGNAROK and More
Over the weekend, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston appeared at Wizard World Philadelphia, and during their panel, they talked a little bit about Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok. This third Thor film is sure to turn out to be the best of the three. I think director Taika Waititi is going to do something wonderfully special with it and give us something that we’ve never seen before. At one point during the Q&A, Hiddleston was asked what we could expect to see from Loki in the upcoming film and he explained:
"That's a great question. 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’m really happy that Loki will be back again, but it’s kinda sad that this could be the last time we see him in the MCU. He went on to talk about how the characters have progressed, explaining:
"Um, 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. “
Some new story details were revealed for film recently in which we learned that it will include some elements of Planet Hulk. You can read more about that here. Speaking of Hulk, Hiddleston teased the green goliath’s appearance in the film saying:
“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.”
Yeah, it’s definitely going to be awesome to see Loki and Hulk come face to face again. I’m sure we’re going to see a rematch between the two, and maybe this time, Loki will get the better of him. We'll just have to wait and see. Hemsworth also shared his thoughts on the film:
"Man, it is a lot of fun. I think tonally it's a big shift in a great way, more than anything we've seen before. Um, Taika Waititi, the director, if you know any of his work, yeah, he's just an incredible sort of comedic talent, um, a lot of heart in everything he does, um, but you know there's a, it's a very different Thor, it's a different Loki, I think there's a, we go off on another world that we haven't experienced before. It's fun you know, uh, but that's me skirting around the issue because I can't say too much."
They will be joined by Idris Elba (Heimdall), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), and Karl Urban (Skurge). The movie hits theaters on November 3rd, 2017.
