In addition to bringing Jeff Goldblum into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as one of the galaxy’s blue-skinned elders, one of the most exciting things that Thor: Ragnarok will be doing is bringing back Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, the God of Mischief, who last we saw him, was sitting atop the throne of Asgard and having tricked both Thor and the rest of the world into believing he was Odin. Which has left the fate of Asgard sort of hanging in the balance ever since.
With Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk being a major part of the film as well, which is described as being a galactic buddy roadtrip movie between he and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, it’ll be interesting to see if Loki and Hulk ever end up crossing paths in the film, and if so, what might happen in the confrontation.
While appearing at Wizard World Philadelphia this weekend as well, Tom Hiddleston shared his excitement to be reprising his role as Loki in the film, before briefly teasing a possible chip on Loki’s shoulder towards Ruffalo’s Hulk (via Comicbook.com):
“I’m so excited to be playing him again. I haven’t played him, I really haven’t played him properly since the end of 2012. I know Thor: The Dark World came out in 2013, but the last time I put the suit on was in 2012 if you exclude San Diego Comic Con. I don’t know if you would include that or not… What I’m interested in really is how his attitudes have changed. While Thor was away with his buddies fighting a computer, and uh, I’ll think you’ll see it’s, there is all sorts of interesting things. I’m four yeas older and Chris is four years older and there will just be new things we find in it. The most exciting thing about him is that he is always a trickster. It is trying to find new ways for him to be mischievous, because I love doing that, and I hope you guys love within that.”
“And lets not forget that its no secret that um, that the Hulk shows up in Ragnarok, and um, the last time Loki and Hulk were in the same room didn’t go very well for Loki so, he’s got a few chips on his shoulder, but um, yeah, it’s fun, you’ll see.”
If you’ve been paying attention to my coverage of the film over the past few months, then you’re probably already aware that I have my fair share of theories when it comes to how Loki and Hulk might interact in the film. With that being said though, it seems like Hiddleston has at the very least here, eluded to a possible desire for vengeance from his character towards Banner in the film, who currently is at a very fragile and mysterious place in the MCU. We’ve heard that the film will incorporate some Planet Hulk elements into it, but I don’t think I’d be far off by saying that Loki pissing off or playing games with Hulk, might just be the last thing that he or the God of Thunder need at this point.
Thor: Ragnarok is set to hit theatres on November 3rd, 2017.
