Thor: The Dark World fans, congratulations! You've come to the right website. Following in the footsteps of our Man Of Steel Easter eggs reveal with David S. Goyer and Zack Snyder - as well as our Skyfall writers special, the Iron Man 3 spoiler podcast breakdown and this Star Trek Into Darkness dissection - here are the secrets of Thor: The Dark World, as told by director Alan Taylor, Marvel super producer Kevin Feige and Loki himself (Tom Hiddleston) on our recent spoiler podcast. Fascinating, illuminating and chock-full of spoilers, you're not going to want to read this feature until you've seen the movie, which, handily, is in cinemas right about now.

WORDS HELEN O'HARA, CHRIS HEWITT

A Loki spin-off could work without Thor

Thor: The Dark World

Feige: “We’re thinking about a lot of things [with Loki]. (Laughs) Where we’ll specifically go, we’ll see, but the greatest part of the groundswell for a Loki solo movie is that it means, ‘Yes, we want to see a Loki movie’ but it really means ‘We love Loki, we love what you’ve done with Loki, we love what Tom Hiddleston has done with Loki.’ And I certainly hope that all those people enjoy what we do in the Loki movie that’s coming out… now, which is Thor: The Dark World.”

“Anything is possible. When inspiration strikes and you have the right creative team, you can make a great film out of almost anything. I think it would be challenging [to make a Loki movie without Thor], because so much of what’s great about Thor is Loki and what’s great about Loki is Thor. And both Tom and Chris have been very upfront and honest about that. There are not many singular Loki stories in the comics, I think for that very reason.”

“We wouldn’t do it just because he’s really popular. ‘Quick, make a movie about him!’ We would only do it if we had an idea that could sustain a whole movie. The truth is, there are so many other Loki / Thor stories to tell first.”
