When Thor was away fighting Ultron, Loki has gained complete control of the Asgard as it was him was under the mask of Odin. Tom Hiddleston shared some insights in an interview with EW, he said “I don’t think I am specifically fighting him [Thor], however, that’s all I will tell you. I have been here for 10 days, We are really just at the beginning. I think they officially started filming a few days ago. It’s great. I am having such a good time. Taika Waititi is brilliant, his vision for this Thor movie is full of wit, humor, and drama. It’s got a hell of a cast. It’s got quite a lineup.”
He further said “It’s been three years since I have played him. We wrapped the Dark world in 2012. Last time I wore the costume at ComicCon in 2013. To don the black hair and Leather and all of Loki’s stuff is great fun.” CHEERS!
