Tom Hiddleston Talks ‘Thor 3′ & Loki’s Future [Video]

This Video & Article Contain Thor: The Dark World SPOILERS!!!!

Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is a fan-favorite in the Marvel Movie Universe – which is probably why the God of Mishchief has been hanging around for multiple Thor movies and The Avengers, with no signs of him going anywhere in the near future.

In fact, when making Thor: The Dark World Marvel apparently didn’t think there was enough Loki in the mix, which is why the studio staged reshoots to feature even MORE of Hiddleston’s scene-stealing character. (If you listen to our review, you know it was totally worth the extra effort.)

Thor 2 leaves Loki in position on the throne of Asgard while in the guise of his father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). How he got there undetected is a question that the sequel leaves hanging, for sure (what, did both Heimdall and Odin miss that one?) – but it would seem clear that any plans for Thor 3 will have to address Loki usurping the throne – especially since The Avengers 2 will be leaving the villain out of the story.

As you can see in the video above (and in many of the other Thor 2 interviews we did), plans for the Thunder God’s next chapter have been wholly dependent on the box office reception of The Dark World. As of writing this, Thor 2 is sitting at $480 million at the worldwide box office, which is not even half of Iron Man 3‘s take, but is already better than the original Thor’s entire earnings, in just three weeks of release both domestically and overseas. That’s all to say: don’t be surprised if one of those yet-to-be-announced movies for 2016 is Thor 3 - Especially if the Phase 3 road to Avengers 3 is headed in the direction we think.

Though he’s being modest in the video, Hiddleston’s Loki still has a major role to play in the MMU, and fans will likely be eager to get him back, when (not if) that day comes.

  1. Honestly, I’d like to see Loki ask for Thor’s help when Surtur invades Asgard. That’s all that matters to me as far as a potential third movie.

    I like Tom as an actor, I like the Loki character but I’m not on the “Loki must be in every scene in every movie ever” bandwagon so I wouldn’t mind if he only had one or two scenes in future.

    • Yes, Surtur would indeed be good to see in Thor 3. I would not mind seeing Executioner and Enchantress put in an appearance, either.

    • I’d really enjoy this story line for a third Thor installation. Besides, while Malekith was wreaking havoc with the Aether by spreading it across the different realms that opened through portals, the audience got a glimpse of Muspelheim. Hopefully, that was a tease that Surtur and the fire demons will be included to Thor 3.

  2. I love Tom Hiddleston. He just steals every scene he’s in. But like Dazz mentioned, sort of, I hope they don’t overuse him. This could be debatable, but I think Tom Hiddleston as Loki is the best Marvel Studios casting so far. Or on par with RDJ as Iron Man.

    • Most definitely. Brilliant choice but I worried when Marvel kowtowed to fans by including more Loki because that then alienates (ha, a pun!) some people and an overuse of a beloved character is the risk.

      It’s like Homeland. Some people were sick of Nicholas Brody but so far (in the UK at least), he’s only appeared in one episode in season 3 and that one episode has been the best because of the lack of Brody in this season.

      • I agree with both you guys, bring him back for the inevitable Thor 3 with Sutur and the Fire Demons. I hope that’s the route they take anyway. Yes it was funny seeing Thor smashing cups on the floor, yes it was funny seeing him hanging his hammer on a coat hook but lets have an entire Thor/Asgard set movie. I know they fleshed out the other worldly themes in Thor 2 but they still seemed to be playing it safe to me.

        • Hopefully, audience reactions to Guardians will determine whether or not they’ll have Earth/other realms sharing the spotlight in Thor 3 or go bold and avoid Earth altogether.

          I’d love to see Earth avoided completely in the next one, leave Midgard to the Earthbound heroes for a movie.

  3. Hiddleston is full of s***, he knows damn well that he’s a lock for Thor 3 and that Marvel is going to use him as long as they realistically can.

  4. the paycheque is good now, but im sure he doesnt want to get pigeon holed

  5. I like tom hiddeston and i am big fan of him and he is truly great loki and i hope to see him play loki in thor 3,the avenger 2,3 loki solo movies and sutur the Enchantress,the excitioner will be in thor 3.

    • This is what I mean by people jumping on the Hiddleston bandwagon and going way over the top with it, forcing Marvel to overuse the character and make us genuinely hate him due to his constant screen time.

      I don’t want to ever get sick of seeing Tom on screen so lets all just step back a little and let them tell stories without shoehorning Loki into everything.

      • don’t use him now until Thor 3, NO to him in A2 (which I think we heard that he is not in it) and yes hopefully NOT until a Thor 3 movie, MAYBEEE in a later button that just shows him being the trickster we all love and leading to a GOTG 2 (If it is any good)!! I’m still hoping so even after the button where Del Toro looked like he got lost on the way to his role in a live action CATS movie..

  6. Kofi Outlaw, you’re the man! You’re last interviews with Chris Hemsworth & Kevin Feige were awesome and this interview was sick! Keep them coming! The best questions were asked! An I can’t wait to see your interview for Capt 2, when that comes out.

    In the movie, it was hinted that the guard that reported Loki dead was actually Loki.

    • What’re you talking about? He’s not going anywhere.

  7. Why dont they just make a feature about Loki? Just have Loki on the throne and how he thinks he can do Ofins job, but bites more than he can chew basically upsetting surtur etc and so his grand vision and ego all backfire on his ass. thor 3 would be thor having to go back to asgard and fix Lokis mess.

    Insofar as hemdall etc. he comitted “treason” with the others so he’d be locked up and of no use to stop Loki. either Loki simply did enough to distract Odin to give him enough time to impersonate him and get Thor off asgard (Odin wouldn’t have allowed him to leave) or Loki did something and put Odin in the Odin sleep without anybody else knowing about it.. Which seems a bit of a stretch.

  8. It’d be interesting if Thor found out that Frigga wasn’t biological mom and then the play in the character of Gaea as Thor’s true mom. It would give Thor a reason to be mad at his father and a way for Loki to rub in the “See how it feels to be betrayed by your father?…” card.

    Maybe the story could be about Loki tricking Thor to go to Valhalla and to kidnap Frigga’s “soul/spirit/body.” This ends up being a big no-no as they have no right to be there because they have not died honorably yet. They kidnap Frigga’s body back to Asgard. This paradox triggers Ragnarok and allows Muspelheim demons to set free upon other realms. In the end they have to return Frigga back to Valhalla to stop Ragnarok. Odin sacrifices himself too so that he and Frigga can be together in Valhalla.

    Think of all the cool creatures that could be seen in Valhalla. The imagery of that place would be epic.

  9. Personally, I’m a Loki fanatic, as well as a Tom Hiddleston fanatic. So I would LOVE to see a entire movie based on Loki. Lots of people hate Loki (because he’s an evil character) and don’t think that having a suckish life is enough to attempt to rule the world over, so a Loki spinoff sounds great. Hopefully that makes as much sense out loud as it did in my head :). But if they were to do a Loki spinoff, then I don’t think that adding Loki into the Avengers 2 would be great. As Dazz said earlier, it wouldn’t be a good idea to overuse Loki. (Ill miss you, Loki!)

  10. I would really love to see Hulk appear in Thor 3. I don’t if everyone has seen the animated movie:Thor vs Hulk, and just that idea of Loki taking control of the Hulk or the “monster” would just be epic. And just by having Thor, Loki, and Hulk in a movie together would be $$ plus it would be a really fun movie.

  11. So I’ve noticed that a lot of people don’t want Loki in A2. I, for one, am a Loki FANATIC and would like to see some of him in it. Not too much ( :’( ) but some. And Loki should definitely have a spinoff!! A Loki solomovie . . . holy s*** I’ve died and gone to heaven!!!
