Where there are superheroes, there must be a supervillain. In writer/director Joss Whedon’s film THE AVENGERS, that supervillain is Loki, an extraterrestrial played by Tom Hiddleston, who tries to enslave the Earth with the help of a mysterious but extremely violent alien race.
Hiddleston, who hails from London, England, originated the role of the adopted brother of the mighty Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, in 2011’sTHOR. Hiddleston has a strong stage background in the U.K. and costarred in the 2008-2010 BBC-made series WALLANDERwith Kenneth Branagh, who directed THOR.
2011 was a big feature film year for Hiddleston. Besides THOR, he also had major roles in the intimate drama THE DEEP BLUE SEA, Steven Spielberg’s epic WAR HORSE and Woody Allen’s lyricalMIDNIGHT IN PARIS as Jazz Age iconic writer F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Hiddleston is currently filming in the title role of a telefilm of William Shakespeare’s HENRY V, having wrapped on HENRY IV PARTS I & II. This interview finds him seated in a hotel room at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons after a huge press conference, cordially giving us more details on Loki.

The success of Marvel’s The Avengers has allowed the comic book universe to introduce its rogues gallery to theater-going audiences, bringing in such extraterrestrial villains as Thanos, the Mad Titan. Thor was the first of the recent Marvel movies to use other-worldly magic as a power source instead of Tony Stark’s technology in Iron Man or the science behind the genesis ofCaptain America and the Hulk. In a recent interview, Kevin Feige confirmed that the death-obsessed Eternal would not be making an appearance in Thor 2; another big villain would be stepping in. We know that Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman will reprise the roles of Thor and Jane Foster respectively (not to mention the return of Idris Elba as Heimdall). We also know that Tom Hiddleston will return as Loki, but that’s not a new big villain. And we know Mads Mikkelsen is set to play a villain, so who could it be? Hit the jump to see what Feige had to say.
