"I Will Go On Until The Audience Wants Me To Stop" Says Tom Hiddleston On Playing Loki
Tom Hiddleston was careful not to give away any specifics on Thor: The Dark World but he does discuss what the role of Loki means to him and what he hopes the film explore for the God of Mischief.
It's hard to imagine another actor underneath the horned helmet that adorns the head of the Asgardian god of mischief and actor Tom Hiddleston says that so long as the fans support him, he'll gladly bear the weight of said helm.
"I will go on until the audience wants me to stop or Marvel tells me to stop. It is a rare thing to be connected to a character that people enjoy watching. I never expected it my wildest dreams. You don't dare sign up for that as an actor. All any actor can see is they might play a character that somehow ignites the public imagination and it is thrilling when you do. It is in good fun."
The actor has been pretty frank about his love for the character and the complexity it affords him in flexing his acting skills in front of the camera. At times maniacal, sorrowful, angry and even a bit funny, there aren't many roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that would allow an actor to show such a range of emotion.
"The fun of playing Loki is the character itself constantly keeps people guessing. And he provokes a double-edged sentiment in the people who allegedly he has invested in, and who he cares about. As someone, who was then cast out as the black sheep of the royal family, whether he can be accepted into that fold is a question that remains to be answered. Just how dark and evil he has become is another question I hope the film will answer."
After being the primary antagonist in Thor and The Avengers Loki will take a backseat to Christopher Eccleston's Malekith the Accursed in Thor: The Dark World. The film will also introduce Tyr (Clive Russell), who in Marvel Comics continuity is another son of Odin and brother to Thor and Loki. We'll have to wait to see if this holds true for the film. Thor: The Dark World arrives in U.S. theaters November 8th, 2013.
