If every interview could be with Tom Hiddleston for the rest of my career, I'd be happy. Know this about the actor before we get to the juicy Marvel stuff: He's pleasant, polite, unbelievably warm, gracious and just a great person to be around after a long day of doing press for an upcoming film. That's where I met up with Hiddleston yesterday, meeting up with the man to chat about Steven Spielberg's War Horse, where Hiddleston plays a British war hero whose character is instrumental to the segmented plot. We'll have more with Hiddleston closer to release, but you love the Marvel stuff so I figured we'll let you have those details first.
As far as Thor 2 is concerned, yes, Hiddleston will be playing Loki in the film once again, though he hasn't yet seen a script for that yet. Which begs the question: Just how many Marvel movies will Loki appear in? "Well I signed for six films initially, and I've done two -- Thor and The Avengers," Hiddleston told Movies.com. "I don't know how long people will be interested in me, but we'll see." Regarding Thor 2, Hiddleston added, "Thor 2 is in production, yeah. I haven't seen the script or anything, but I'm thrilled that Patty Jenkins is going to direct. Really, really excited. As a director she has this incredible handling of performance and the muscularity of that character. She's absolutely fearless, and I think she and Chris [Hemsworth] will take Thor in a really cool direction."
Thor 2 is due in theaters on July 26th, 2013. Keep an eye out for more from Hiddleston as the release date for War Horse (which I really enjoyed, for whatever that's worth) approaches.
