Tom Hiddleston says his character Loki will surprise the audience in his next film. The star is of the opinion that the trailers of Thor: The Dark World (2013) might have given the wrong impression to audiences regarding the part the cruel but charismatic villain has to play in the story.
In Thor and The Avengers, Loki’s place in the universe was obvious. He was the enemy and the biggest threat for the worlds that Thor was defending. The trailers for Thor: The Dark World, however, revealed something very intriguing. Regardless of their past hatreds, Loki agrees to join forces with Thor. This unlikely alliance certainly raises the bar immensely in comparison to the first film’s more generic story-line.
Tom Hiddleston’s statement makes the upcoming Marvel adventure even more exciting. Could we actually see Loki acquiring some notion of good and really help Thor save his world and his beloved? We have rarely witnessed in a superhero film a bad guy turning good. The alliance of Loki and Thor will apparently be just a plot device. The true essence of the film will unfold through the brothers’ co-operation and this is where it will get truly thrilling.
Tom Hiddleston also spoke of the goodness in his character. According to him, Loki’s malice is the result of his internal conflict between the will for remorse and the desire to conquer. Furthermore, his evil is fueled by his difficult past. Hiddlestone says that the greatest criminals have buried something deep inside their soul and they derive their anger and taste for destruction from it. The questions remain: Even after inflicting terrible damage in Thor and The Avengers, can we see the good side of him again? Which side will win? Will it be the monster or the brother? Do we want to see him become good at all? He is indeed Marvel’s most beloved villain precisely because of how bad he is in a good way.
