Tom Hiddleston confessed that Thor: The Dark World was partly his idea. The beloved actor has admitted that the vital concept of Thor and Loki uniting came from him. This is hardly difficult to believe and makes plenty of sense, since the best parts of the film involved Hiddleston’s charismatic villain. It is not difficult to imagine that he did the best work on the film not simply in terms of acting.
It was Tom Hiddleston who realized that if Loki was presented as an unquestionable villain once again, the franchise would become too repetitive (even more repetitive than it is now). Huddleston apparently offered the idea of Loki being developed as close to a good guy as possible in the sequel to Thor (2011). When it comes down to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Huddleston’s performance is right at the top, matched only by Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark. It shouldn’t be a surprise then that an actor who understands his character so well came up with the idea that saved Thor: The Dark World (2013) from being a complete failure.
Naturally, Hiddleston has down played his part in the creative process in the film but he is not the only one who nobly but unsuccessfully tries to hide the fact that Marvel’s artistic abilities are dying off. It was previously reported that Joss Whedon, the writer/director of The Avengers (2012) also played a part in the process of crafting Thor: The Dark World. Perhaps if Marvel puts the fate of their future films in the hands of their most artistically skilled collaborators and not follow obligatory formulas, they will be even more successful. After all, how could some additional artistic talent harm their profit margins?
