Josh Horowitz of Happy Sad Confused podcast interviewed Tom Hiddleston on his new miniseries The Night Manager, but he of course couldn't help but sneak in a few questions about his character Loki in Thor: Ragnarok.
Hiddleston gave us some insight into what Loki would think about the expansion of the Marvel Universe and the split happening in Captain America: Civil War:
“I really enjoy watching it progress in a way. I saw the trailer for 'Civil War,' and I was like, ‘Wow.’ … It has come to this.’ I feel like if Loki was in 'Civil War,' he’d be sitting on the rooftops somewhere going, ‘How marvelous — the children are fighting.’ I’m excited to see it. He’s clearly on Team Loki. They were all fairly unkind to him in 'The Avengers,' so I’m not sure he’d be taking sides. [He’d think] ‘Ah! This is entertaining.'”
The British actor went on to discuss the possibility of sharing the screen with the ever-talented Cate Blanchett; she has yet to be officially confirmed to play Hela, the Goddess of Death:
“That would be extraordinary. I don’t know if she’s definitely doing it, but obviously she’s an extraordinary actress. If she’s up for coming to Asgard, that would be interesting. [Ragnarok] is coming around. I saw Chris Hemsworth in Australia. He lives about an hour away from where we were shooting 'Kong: Skull Island,' and he was full of beans about 'Thor 3.'”
In another interview with The Daily Beast, Hiddleston discussed Thor 3:
“Thor 3 will be cool because I’ve not done it for four years. I love working with Chris [Hemsworth]. This will be my last time out of the gate.”
Thor: Ragnarok stars Hemsworth, Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo and Blanchett. It is directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle. The film begins principal photography in June with a set release date of November 3, 2017.
