Tom Hiddleston hints that Thor and Loki will "grow closer" in the sequel.
Tom Hiddleston has been discussing his third turn as the deliciously evil Loki in 'Thor: The Dark World,' which will hit cinemas later this month, revealing that it is much darker than its predecessor.
The English thespian also confirmed that the sequel harks back to 'The Avengers,' which saw Loki run riot across New York City while battling against the beloved ensemble.
At the end of Joss Whedon's delectable cinematic triumph, which, as you're already probably aware, is the second highest grossing movie of all time, Thor returns Loki and the Tesseract, which helped to Loki to wreak havoc on earth, to their home planet of Asgard.
Hiddleston told Collider that 'Thor: The Dark World' sees Loki still in Asgard and dealing with the opinions of the planet's elders, who weren't too fond of the chaos he caused on Earth.
"Well inevitably Loki's back in Asgard," confirmed Hiddleston. "That's where everybody saw him go with Thor at the end of Avengers in Central Park. And what's exciting about this film is that it depicts the aftermath of those events and you get to see the opinion of certain principal characters in Asgard. You get to see every character's perspective on what Loki did and they tend to be different and disparate and varying in tone and empathy, certainly."
Hiddleston also confirmed that director Alan Taylor's addition to the Marvel universe has a much darker tone than Kenneth Branagh's original.
He commented, "I think that's what's exciting about the material is that it sort of emotionally, psychologically and spiritually - I hope, you know we sit in the middle of it, but you hope it embraces a more complex and dark experience alongside lots of action."
Hiddleston also believes that it's the film's prerogative to delve into more mature and darker areas, and that because they are now established audiences want to see different sides to the characters.
"I think that's our privilege with being allowed to make it is that we've established, certainly with Thor and Loki, we've established the characters across two films so it means you can colour in more shades with each character."
He went on to remark, "It means that Thor can get darker as a character and more complicated. It means that Loki can get even more complexity and dimension, which really is the most interesting thing about being alive is that there is no black and white, there are shades of grey and different peoples perspectives on events."
When quizzed about Thor and Loki's relationship in the follow-up, Hiddleston became coyer though.
Collider asked if the duo were more unified in 'Thor: The Dark World,' to which he stated, "Yeah, absolutely. I'm just wondering as to whether I can answer that question. It's consistently ambivalent in a way that's true to the comics and really fun for myself and Chris Hemsworth to play."
And by "grow closer", I'm hoping that Thor will finally do some Fifty Shades of Bifrost things to Loki
