Marvel fans are eager to see Loki in “Thor: Ragnarok,” and the feeling is mutual for Tom Hiddleston. The actor revealed why he is excited to play the alien trickster again Saturday during a panel at Wizard World Philadelphia, a fan convention.
“What I’m interested in, really, is how his attitudes have changed while Thor was away with his buddies, fighting a computer,” Hiddleston said. “And I think you’ll see there’s all sorts of interesting things. I’m four years older, Chris [Hemsworth, who plays Thor] is four years older. There’ll be just new things we find in it.”
The actor loves Loki’s playful nature. After serious roles in “I Saw the Light” and “The Night Manager,” it sounds like Hiddleston is ready to have a little fun. “The most exciting thing about it is always that he is a trickster,” he explained. “It is trying to find new ways of him being mischievous ‘cause I love doing that, and I hope that you guys love watching that.”
Hiddleston is also ready for Loki to confront the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). As previously reported, the big green guy will hit the road with Thor in the third film. Hiddleston hinted that their last meeting in “The Avengers” won’t be forgotten. “It’s no secret that the Hulk shows up in ‘Ragnarok,’” Hiddleston said. “And the last time Loki and Hulk were in the same room, it didn’t go very well for Loki, so he’s got a few chips on his shoulder.”

However, he quickly clarified that his future with Marvel remains unknown. “I don’t know! Honestly, I don’t know,” he added. “They haven’t got their ducks in a row yet. They make it up as they go along.”
“Thor: Ragnarok” will hit theaters Nov. 3, 2017.
