COMICS: Tom Hiddleston Praises Kieron Gillen's Take On Loki; "Here’s To Bringing Norse Back"

Kieron Gillen's run on Journey Into Mystery has seen 'Kid Loki' become one of Marvel's most popular characters. In the final issue (which went on sale yesterday), a very well-known fan decided to write in and share his thoughts on the writer's take on the character...Tom Hiddleston!

Kieron Gillen has himself a very famous fan. In the letters page of Journey Into Mystery #645, Tom Hiddleston - who has brought the God of Mischief to life in the big screen in both Thor and Marvel's The Avengers - decided to share his thoughts on the writer's take on Loki during his critically acclaimed run. While it's unlikely that we'll ever see the actor play this incredibly popular version of the iconic villain (special effects aren't quite that good just yet after all), it should come as a nice surprise to fans that Hiddleston is up-to-date on his comic books. It's also obvious that like Gillen, who will continue Kid Loki's story in Young Avengers, the actor has a very good grasp on the inner workings of the character.

marvelmaniaco - 10/25/2012, 4:18 PM
Love this guy he's so cool!

I love it when actors who play comic characters actually read comics. They don't even have to be the comics of the specific characters they're playing, just that they have an affinity and familiarity with the work. The fact that Hiddleston does read Journey is gravy.

It's cool that Tom Hiddleston gave Kieron Gillen a shout out.

Tom hiddleston I would buy you a beer love the fact that he's actually reading comics out of enjoyment rather than just for research and never bother again awesome dude
BlueDemon - 10/25/2012, 4:48 PM
Tom Hiddleston is a class act
JamesAsAlways - 10/25/2012, 4:49 PM
Its a shame JiM is over :/ It was my favourite. At least Loki is following Gillen to Young Avengers, Not happy that I have to wait until January to get my next Loki fix.
Funsize - 10/25/2012, 5:01 PM
Love this guy so much!!! He's awesome!!! :P
ScottScottScott - 10/25/2012, 5:03 PM
JiM #645 is tied with Ghost #1 as my comics of the week both were amazing!

See, not all actors find it beneath them to be in a comic movie, and Hiddelston actually reads the comic too. What an awesome guy.
evilness - 10/25/2012, 8:21 PM
^you're joking, right?

my respect for hiddleston just went up 100-fold

The pic of him in his Loki costume with a kid in cap outfit on his shoulder is priceless... Class act!
RamonSuarez - 10/25/2012, 9:12 PM
Just when I thought my mancrush on Hiddleston couldn't get deeper he goes and pulls off a stunt like this. Dude is arguably my favorite actor right now.
AmazingFantasy - 10/25/2012, 10:14 PM
Ovaries are gone.

There are so few actors who really like to portray and read comic books and most of them are actors who are now part of the MCU.
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 10/25/2012, 11:45 PM
I love it when celebs show their love for comics, comic writers and comic characters. It's not just his job to play Loki the man is a fan. I forsee a lot of non comicbook fans that love Tom will be hitting up the comic shops for back issues of this series.
Theunderdog - 10/26/2012, 3:06 AM
Tom is great actor and more of enjoyable person in reality but I never liked the movie version of loki I think he lacked the trickster and sarcastic and crazy part of loki that made him popular
HelaGood - 10/26/2012, 12:14 PM
loved Gillen's run on the book... waiting to see what happens now that Sif will be the main character...
