Tom Hiddleston Talks More About Loki's Motivations In MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS
Hit the jump to read Tom Hiddleston's take on how Loki's nefarious plans change between the events of THOR and Marvel's The Avengers, as well as how the villain copes with taking on the superhero team.
In the latest issue of SFX Magazine, Tom Hiddleston has talked more about his role as Loki in Marvel's The Avengers. Commenting on how the God of Mischief evolves following the conclusion of Thor, as well as the way the villain faces off against each member of the superhero team, the British actor offers up a fascinating insight into what we can expect from Loki this coming April.
"There is a personal engine but it's behind a degree of megalomania. When you see Loki let go of that spear at the end of Thor, he lets go of Asgard, he lets go of Asgard and his need for that place and his attachment and need for the affection and respect of Odin and his brother. As he disappears in that wormhole, that's a literal way of saying, "I'm done. Asgard is gone and I have other things to do." At the beginning of The Avengers, you see the beginnings of what Loki is planning and if he doesn't belong in Asgard, where might he belong? In that tragic place of confusion of "Where do I belong in this universe?" Loki's answer is "I will make myself belong", which dark and menacing and dangerous.
"I think Loki is very flexible and adaptable to the present context. With each Avenger, he faces a different threat, a different strategy and methodology. Some pose more of a threat than others in his mind, but they all have their own unique superpowers. I say it's like tennis. You'll never play the same game of tennis with a new and different opponent. The magic happens in the space between you, not just with the characters but the actors too."
