Tom Hiddleston has admitted time and again that he loves playing the character Loki and his is set to reprise the role for Thor: The Dark World. Tom has been discussing the movie and has been comparing the two films and their directors Kenneth Branagh and Alan Taylor.
Hiddleston told Huffington Post, “Ken established the tone, so we’ve taken the baton and kept running. Alan Taylor is fantastic, one of the men responsible for Game of Thrones which is so of that world, a very grounded, gritty, earthy world where warriors and swords and monsters and magic all meet, so his experience of that has given him a fantastic take on the whole world of Thor.”
He continued, “He was refashioning those archetypes in space. We talked about King Lear and that kind of dynastic drama, about succession, with somebody at the top of the tree, and somebody else due to succeed the throne, there's always a wrestling if it’s father and son… it's all very dynastic.”
Tom then went on to discuss the possibility of Thor 3, adding, “These kind of films, not to get too heavy about it, all depend on the financial success of the one before, so we'll have to see.”
Thor: The Dark World is currently set to be released on November 8, 2013 in both the US and the UK.
