Loki Begrudgingly Brings Brotherly Love to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Says Hiddleston (And No Love for Dr. Strange)
When we last left Loki, the God of Mischief, he was sitting atop the Throne of Asgard pretending to be his adapted father Odin and watching his brother walk away and return to Earth and the Avengers. But then what? We imagine some of that will be addressed in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, the third chapter in the saga of the God of Thunder, played by Chris Hemsworth, and his highly dysfunctional family. According to Tom Hiddleston, the man that’s played Loki very successfully in three previous Marvel movies, his character’s not at all over past disagreements with his brother, but he’s willing to be brotherly enough to stop an imminent threat.
“At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a lot of questions, and Loki, true to form, is not forthcoming with that many answers,” Hiddleston told IGN in a new interview. “But hammers are involved and the stakes are raised.
“Cate Blanchett, it’s no secret, is playing the goddess of death, who brings destruction in her wake and it is the kind of destruction that both Thor and Loki have never seen. On a scale of terror that they haven ever, ever seen before,” Hiddleston continued. “So they fall back on their brotherhood, fractured though it is, to see what they can do to stop her.”
As previously revealed, some of that help is going to come from the Incredible Hulk played by Mark Ruffalo, but other kinds of help are going to come from master of the mystic arts, Doctor Strange played Benedict Cumberbatch. Loki, it seems, is not a fan of the good Doctor’s. “I think he probably dismisses Strange,” Hiddleston said. “Yes his sorcery is very impressive, but Loki has been doing that for centuries, so who cares?”
Loki will be slightly more impressed with his new adversary though. “Hela is a different beast, and full of surprises, and actually might have been someone with whom at one time he could have gotten along, but the circumstances have changed,” Hiddleston added.
How this all shakes out for Thor, Loki and the Asgard gang is to be determined. Thor: Ragnarok will be in theatres everywhere on November 3.
