In Depth Interview With Tom Hiddleston About Thor And The Avengers

We have had little bits here and there from Tom Hiddleston regarding Thor and The Avengers, but this interview uploaded by Poptimal.com is fantastic. Lots of detail on his approach and the difference between the two movies.

Before you say it - I know, I know... There have been a lot of Tom interviews posted here over the last week or so. But while browsing the web looking for something to report on I found this extra long, extra brilliant interview form the round table at NYCC '11 with him.

DCMarvelFreshman posted this transcript of the interview a few days ago, but I thought it was worth sharing the video from the round table discussion.

I think Tom really knows how to appeal to fans of comic book movies - we have had little bits here and there from Tom Hiddleston regarding Thor and The Avengers, but this interview uploaded by Poptimal.com is fantastic, if a little unprofessional in the beginning... Lots of detail on his approach and the difference between the two movies.

Sit back for 25 minutes, put your feet up and enjoy this amazing interview.

Part 1


Part 2


Some interesting points that he made regarding The Avengers

Loki brings the battle to Earth because he thinks that under one rule there will be no war, there is also a jealousy that Thor has this kingdom, and Loki wants to make it his own kingdom.


Joss (Wheddon) has two notes for Tom, be more feral and enjoy yourself


There is a lot of Loki on his own, with only a little bit of support.


Loki has been expanded, he has developed. Between the end of Thor and the beginning of The Avengers its like he has been on three years training, he has a few more things up his sleeve.


Joss has a soft spot for Loki, he likes him as a character and wanted to explore the sibling rivalry and interesting element in The Avengers.


He has a great weapon in The Avengers, not like Cap's sheild or Thors Hammer.


It's a global battle, but Manhattan becomes a focus point for lots of reasons.

He seems like a good person. Tom Hiddleston is Loki

Don't get me wrong I am the biggest Thor fan. But I think that Tom has been interviewed by every other person in the United States at this point.

Bring on the movie!!!!! Avengers is only going to be good with a great villain or villains. Loki is a great villain and Tom H. played him perfectly.

With Thanos, we can bring in the Guardians, Kree, and all of the other Cosmic players.

Hey, just wanted to give the heads up about the "unprofessional" behavior in the video.

What happened was Tom arrived late to the interview and someone's camera turned off because nothing was moving in the camera's frame so they had to turn it back on. The Interview started, and he went to double check it really quick. Some of us had recorders, while others only had video. It would have sucked to not walk out with either.

The phone interruption was Disney themselves lol. They needed to have someone monitoring the phone call and they joined late. Just some craziness. Sucks that it happened, but it went pretty smoothly overall.

Hope you guys enjoy the video.

@NightMystic - Thanks for the heads up, was maybe a bit unfair of me to say that without actually being there. It was just how it came across as I watched it.
