THE AVENGERS: Tom Hiddleston On Loki's Battles With Captain America & The Hulk
In this month's issue of Total Film Tom Hiddleston speaks about getting his start in acting and some of his movie roles since. But of course most interesting to us here at CBM is is work in Thor, in which he played the villain Loki, and the reprisal of that role for Joss Whedon's The Avengers. We already know that Loki will throw down with each member of the team individually, but we don't really know any of the details. Well in the interview Hiddleston dishes a little on what we can expect from his confrontations with both Captain America (Chris Evans) and the completely CG'd Hulk. He doesn't give too much away so I don't think we really need a spoiler warning, however he does seem to suggest that Loki may go down the mind control route when faced with the power of the Green Goliath..
While discussing his reprisal of the role of Loki in The Avengers, Hiddleston briefly talks about facing off against two specific members of the team..
"I had huge fun with Chris Evans, as Captain America, because super-soldier though he may be, he's still a man, up against a God who in his own mind is infinitely superior. Then, in the ring with The Hulk, we've got this silver tongued, lightening quick mind up against the embodiment of rage..Loki has this mercurial, transformative ability, not just physically but intellectually, so not all the fights are purely physical. Mind games? Maybe.."
I'll take that as a definitely. Could we see Loki control The Hulk and set him against his team mates as we did in the very first Avengers story from the comics? We won't have too long to find out as The Avengers hits theaters May 4th. For the rest of thsi interview check out the latest issue of Total Film, out now.
