Exclusive: Tom Hiddleston Talks Thor 2
Loki reveals details about the sequel

09 January 2012  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: Exclusive

The utterly charming Tom Hiddleston came into the office this afternoon for a War Horse webchat, but as well as talking matters equestrian, he also dropped a few details about the upcoming Thor sequel, provisionally called, um, Thor 2.

Notably, it must be said, when and where it will be shooting. Whether it'll feature a battered and bruised (but still unbowed) Loki or a peace-making-brother-to-Thor Loki remains to be seen, but here is the question and answer as it stands...

i-ship-that says: "Hi Tom. What can you tell us about Thor 2? Also, as much as I love The Avengers, I'm team Loki just for you. So where can I sign to join your army?"

"Last question first: I have no idea. And without revealing too much, there's a specific skill set you need to be in Loki's army - let me know if you have the qualifications. And all I know about Thor 2 is that we're supposed to film it in London in the summer and that it is being directed by Alan Taylor."

For those not in the know, Alan Taylor is the man only recently announced as a the sequel's director, is a somewhat controversial choice for the director's chair for some camps.

Having only previously worked on TV shows like The Sopranos, Lost, Deadwood, Game Of Thrones and The West Wing, he's relatively unknown amongst film fans... but with a CV like that, you can't help but be intrigued.

When he was asked about what kind of Loki we'll see in Thor 2, Mr. Hiddleston refused to spill too many beans:

"I don't want to spoil anything here. Loki's eternal predilection is to dance on the fault lines of villainy and redemption. I think whatever happens to him, he'll always keep people guessing."

Hmm. Just like yourself there, Tom, eh? Still, it's good to know Thor 2 is still going strong, and that it'll be shot over here in Blighty. Dead ringer for Asgard, England is.

For the full transcript of the webchat, full of plenty more ThorAvengers Thor 2 / Loki tidbits, check out the full transcript tomorrow morning.

And don't forget, dear Hiddlestonians, you can get your Tom Hiddleston fix by watching War Horse, which is out this Friday, January 13. 

As for his other projects, well... Thor 2 is pencilled in for a 15 November 2013 release, The Avengers a far more concrete 27 April of this year.

Not worried.
You can't really get a better television pedigree than what Taylor has. More

Fingers crossed!
Without Kenneth Branagh's experienced Shakespearian hand, fingers crossed that the relativley unknown Alan Taylor will be a good choice! Tom Hiddleson was great in the first one so it's good news that he's back for the sequel, he made for a pretty unpredictable bad guy with issues! Looking forward to seeing him in War Horse More

This dude is awsome!
Was part of the web chat; had two questions answered by the man himself....he even used my user name. Just when I think I can't love this dude anymore, he goes and becomes more awesome...I knew someone would fill the empty space left by Heath Ledger! More
