Tom Hiddleston drops teasers around Loki's character in 'Thor: Ragnarok'
Hollywood star Tom Hiddleston returns as the shape-shifting, mind-controlling villain Loki in the highly-anticipated Marvel film, "Thor: Ragnarok." While waiting for its release date, the actor revealed exciting details about his character — saying that chaos is more fun for his counterpart.
Hiddleston, who became a household name for playing the role of the God of Mischief, is quite excited about his character's development in the forthcoming film. Apart from him, Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), and Cate Blanchett (Hela) are also set to bring fire in the story.
Speaking about the imminent chaos brought by the new villain, Hiddleston told Marvel.com, "The goddess of death shows up and the stakes are high, for everybody. Loki perhaps more than ever, is challenged to define himself in the face of that threat." While Hela is a threat, the actor admitted that the goddess and Loki do have things in common.
Hiddleston quipped, "It's about them recognizing each other; recognizing that we prefer anarchy to order; recognizing that chaos is more fun, if a little exhausting; recognizing the aesthetic value of green capes. The inimitable elegances of a headdress — if you're gonna be bad, you might as well be bad with style."
Fortunately, Loki is not the only one who will go head to head with Hela. He, his brother Thor, Hulk, and Valkyrie will join forces in defeating the villain. However, the goddess herself has her sidekicks, including Skurge the Executioner (Karl Urban).
In an interview with Trek Movie, Urban said that his character teamed up with Hela not because he admires the villain, but because he was left with no other choice. He explained, "My character is operating the Bifrost device and suddenly Cate Blanchett walks through the Bifrost and I very astutely realized I either joined her or die."
He further added that Skurge is a "survivalist," but he knows that teaming up with devil comes with a price. Apparently, fans should wait for the release of "Thor: Ragnarok" on Nov. 3 to witness the journey and story of each character.
