Tom Hiddleston hasn’t seemed particularly enthusiastic or optimistic about reprising the role of Loki in the MCU, but with Avengers: Infinity War promising the epic assembly of Marvel characters yet and a new Thor sequel on the way, the actor’s return seemed inevitable. During a recent appearance at Wizard World, Hiddleston expressed excitement for Thor: Ragnarok, teasing the evolution of his mischievous villain and confirming another run-in with the Hulk. Oh, and he also responded to those James Bond rumors.
Tom Hiddleston’s Loki has been one of the most endearing and exciting characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite the fact that he’s the villain of not one, but three Marvel movies, fans love Loki and can’t seem to get enough of him. But, if Tom Hiddleston is to be believed, you should enjoy Thor: Ragnarok because that will be the last you see of him.
With their awesome Phase Two box set hitting retailers in just a few days, Marvel has been releasing a few of the extras featured in the collection to give us a teeny tiny taste of the vast array of special features we’ll find within. In addition to showing off Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista’s Guardians of the Galaxy audition, the studio has revealed this deleted scene from Thor: The Dark World, which puts Tom Hiddleston’s Loki in a position of great power — sort of.
Devilishly handsome. Magnificently deviant. Criminally charming. Loki is many things, and now you can count stunning masterpiece among the superlatives bandied about when discussing the Marvel Cinematic Universe's trickster god. Thanks to Sideshow Collectibles, fans of Tom Hiddleston's incarnation of the character will soon be able to swoon over a premium format figure of the blue-eye mischief maker. Teased earlier this year, the large-scale statue is a tremendous piece of work, and one that captures the danger and attraction all at once.
Captured in his guise from the first Avengers film, Loki is presented in his horned helm and traditional deep green garb. The lengthy fabric cape is a brighter shade, and complements the dark, leather-like pants and jacket trimmed in gold. There's a lot of terrific detail in the figure itself, including some outstanding texturing throughout the sleeves and chest. I don't know who does Loki's tailoring, but the facsimile job Sideshow does in on point.
Tom Hiddleston is one of the most delightful stars of the MCU, delivering a Loki that is both charismatic and insidious in his mischief-making. The events at the end of Thor: The Dark World pointed to more Loki to come, but Hiddleston himself doesn’t seem so certain of his place in Marvel’s future.
Late last year, Idris Elba let slip that he and Tom Hiddleston filmed Avengers 2 cameos in a scene with Chris Hemsworth as Thor. But, if you've seen the movie, you've noticed that Tom Hiddleston and Loki are nowhere to be found. What gives? Director Joss Whedon says that the scene they filmed just “didn’t play.”
Warner Bros. has been trying to adapt Neil Gaiman’s classic ‘Sandman’ graphic novels into a film for years with little success, but now that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to direct and David S. Goyer is involved, the project is picking up steam. Gaiman himself has been working closely with Gordon-Levitt, Goyer, and writer Jack Thorne on finally bringing ‘Sandman’ to the big screen, and he thinks Tom Hiddleston would be the perfect leading man.
If Tumblr was a person, they'd be flipping their lid right now.
If you caught Thor: The Dark World in theaters a few months back, you know there's a scene in which Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, briefly transforms into Chris Evans' Captain America. It's a funny scene.
For filmmaking purposes we're not entirely privy to, other than maybe Hiddleston just wanted to wear a Captain America costume, the scene was originally shot with Loki's actor rather than Steve Rogers'. So get ready, Tumblr. You're about to see some magic.
Good news for Tom Hiddleston fans: Hot Toys has announced a 1/6 scale collectible figure of Loki from Thor: The Dark World in all its Hiddleston-y glory. As usual, the likeness and clothing looks spot-on -- like it was 3D printed by Dwarven blacksmiths (that's how they do it on movie Asgard, right?). This is the second version of the character from Hot Toys following a version from The Avengers movie, which has long since been in short supply or outright sold out.
The news that Paul Rudd will play Hank Pym in the 2015 Ant-Man movie is the latest piece of inspired casting from Marvel Studios. Rudd will bring charm, humor and an appealing eye-twinkle to what may prove to be Marvel's most comedic movie under writer Joe Cornish and writer-director Edgar Wright.
Marvel characters have found tremendous success on the big screen, both in Marvel's own "in-house" movies such as the Avengers line and in those produced by other studios, such as the Wolverine/X-Men films. Bringing an established character to the screen is an unusual challenge because readers have a strong idea of what they want to see, and actors want to bring something new to the role. ComicsAlliance offers its view on the performers who pulled this off best.
