How 'Avengers' Takes Loki Into Thor's 'Dark World'


Tom Hiddleston has perfected the art of talking about the upcoming "Thor: The Dark World" without actually giving any major spoilers away. In a new interview, he sets up the forthcoming Marvel movie and how it follows up the events of "The Avengers."

"Our springboard for the second 'Thor' film has been to ask the question, at the end of 'Avengers' when Thor and Loki are kind of beamed up back to Asgard through some kind of link in the Bifrost chain, everybody up there in space is going to have an opinion on what happened over the course of 'Avengers,'" Hiddleston explained to Digital Spy. "So Thor and Loki were gone from Asgard for a time, and to all intents and purposes, all hell broke loose."

He continued, "They were both responsible, though Loki was primarily responsible. But Odin is going to have an opinion on that and Frigga is going to have an opinion on that and Sif and the Warriors Three and also Jane Foster wasn't there. She was sort of syphoned off to a kind of bogus assignment. That's really where it starts. ... It starts with all the characters have been slightly evolved from the end of that film."

Hiddleston said that the cast is having "the most fun and thrilling time" filming the new movie and promised that "Thor: The Dark World" won't just be "the old recipe reheated in the microwave." "We're cooking up something very new with the same ingredients," he said.

Don't expect that Loki won't be up to his old tricks just because he was defeated in both "Thor" and "The Avengers," either. Hiddleston said that his character still is a loose wire.

"That's the fun in playing him," he said. "There's always more than one thing going on. He's always playing some kind of game with the people he's interacting with, if not with his mind, with his intellect."

"Thor: The Dark World" is due in theaters on November 8, 2013.
