Tom Hiddleston gets excited for ‘Thor: The Dark World’

Tom Hiddleston has risen to stardom thanks to his portrayal of the god of mischief, Loki, in Thor and The Avengers. I, like many others, can’t get enough of Tom as Loki, and I’m glad to see him reprise his role in the Thor sequel, Thor: The Dark World.

“I don’t want to give too much away. But I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed. Alan Taylor’s vision of Thor 2 is utterly brilliant. The journey continues in the most epic dimension and proportion imaginable. It’s very, very exciting.”

“The best thing about being Loki is that he is my diametric opposite. Physically, he is a photo negative of who I am. Loki is dark and pale, and I am light and fair. Also spiritually I am not much like him either. Yet I feel an incredible freedom in playing him.”

“He is a combination of mercurial intellectual ability, emotional ambiguity, rakish charm, charisma and provocative wit. He has a wicked inclination to mischief, underneath which is a well of spiritual pain. Both these aspects are central to his depth as a character: his unashamed and perverse delight in creating chaos; and his capacity for raw emotional expression.”

“And – as my American friends tell me – he’s kind of a badass! He’s one of the richest, most rewarding, most fun characters I’ve ever played.”

“Underneath the steely cold veneer of his trickster charm is a certain vulnerability and sensitivity – the wounded fragility of an outcast brother and son. His mind IS a box of cats though! But I love him.”

Thor: The Dark World hits theaters after Iron Man 3, with a release date of November 8, 2013. The movie will explore the other realms, not just Earth, Asgard and Jotunheim.
