Actor Tom Hiddleston was in attendance at the 2013 Jameson Empire Awards where he presented Helen Mirren with the Empire Legend Award. While walking the red carpet, Hiddleston naturally fielded a few questions about his next big Marvel Studios project Thor: The Dark World. Hiddleston was also one of a half-dozen of actors quizzed about one day stepping into Daniel Craig's James Bond wingtips.

Tom Hiddleston Loki Thor The Dark World



"It's an extraordinary thing...truly..as an actor, when a character you play gets taken to heart by the imagination of the viewing public. Every character I've ever played, I've built with the same conviction, commitment, research and hopefully attention to detail. But Loki is someone, as a character - to my surprise, people really enjoy him and they enjoy his complication and enjoy his arrogance and his vanity and his villainy. Because of the first two films, Thor and The Avengers, in Thor: The Dark World, I've been able to take Loki in new directions, building on that larger platform for him to stand on."



"I'm such a huge fan of James Bond...I'd like to hope that I could attempt to bring a sort of British charm [to the role of 007], " said Hiddleston on potentially assuming the mantle of James Bond. Of course, this was all a hypothetical discussion.

i'm glad hiddleston is taking loki in a "new direction" & isn't joining "one direction".

i like that he mixes it up. take a hint, bobby junior

I'd actually prefer to see him as a Bond villain.
MarkJulian - 3/25/2013, 8:39 AM
@JatevinM I was thinking the same thing.

Its something about Hiddleston that allows him to play this insane yet charmingly homicidal character that everyone loves. I could see him or Cumberbatch as the next Bond villain.

If they remake Die Hard (lets be honest there going to do it eventually) he gets my vote to play Hans (I swear it has nothing to do with his spot on impression of Rickman, I swear it doesn't).

The dude is Loki for me he's been great so I can't wait to see what he does with Loki. And I agree with most of you the dude would be an awesome Bond villain but I think the dudes charm might overshadow Daniel Craig.

Oh please tell me that Wolverine poster is a fake

The guy uttered the words "mewling quim" with such venom and dedication that it didn't feel silly at all hell it made me feel like a bit of a mewling quim.

Talking about Bond did it pick up any awards from Empire.

"I've been able to take Loki in new directions, building on that larger platform for him to stand on."

I don't why I pictured Loki wearing platform shoes in Thor:TDW after that comment ^^

This bloke will be working in Hollywood for a very long time, long after the MCU is finished with him.

Bond? That would be insane but cool.

@Hellsing Best film

and i really really dont want Tom as Bond. I love him, just not as bond.
JatevinM - 3/25/2013, 9:20 AM
fettastic@ I could see him as a great addition to the new Star Wars movies.
GUNSMITH - 3/25/2013, 9:36 AM
THE GUYS AWESOME AND SURPRISINGLY A VERY NICE GUY
JatevinM - 3/25/2013, 9:37 AM
earzmundo@ As I highly doubt he dies since his contract isn't up and Marvel wouldn't dare get rid of one of their most popular actors and characters in the MCU
TheLokey1 - 3/25/2013, 9:39 AM
@ earzmundo it's too early for him to die, I think that will happen in part 3. Loki will sacrifice himself to stop ragnarock (even though he will be the one to set it in motion)

Every time this guy opens his mouth it turns into a front page news story.
Funsize - 3/25/2013, 3:09 PM
Sounds great!!! :)
TheRedSkull - 3/25/2013, 3:20 PM
Always a spot on performance with this guy. He's like Fassbender, just really talented and can suit so many roles with such commitment and believability!
Theradioranger - 3/25/2013, 6:43 PM
Imagine a Bond reboot in about 7 years with Fassbender as Bond and Hiddleston as the master villain (Blofeld-type character) in at least a 3 movie arc.

Insert One Direction jokes.
