    The big thing about the comics for me was the origin story. Thor was interesting, but what I found more fascinating was the other worlds and realms that you can be taken off into. I haven’t seen the script yet, but hopefully. There are so many other universes out there and realms in the comics that they explored. I think definitely we’ll venture into them.

    [‘Game of Thrones’] had a real mythical element to it, but it was rooted in such an organic and tangible world. I think Asgard could really benefit from that sort of a grittier, aged feel to it and not so ethereal. Chris Hemsworth  ( x )

    I think the fascination for me about playing Loki is that, in the history of the mythology and the comic books and the Scandinavian myths, is he’s constantly dancing on this fault line of the dark side and redemption. I don’t know when, but it will be so fun to see him see the light again and be recruited to the good side. Tom Hiddleston ( x )

    I think it would be fun to play with it. If the audience is interested in that, then I certainly am. It seems that that’s why he’s the God of Mischief, because you can never quite pin him down. You don’t know which direction he’s going to swivel into next. Can he forgive himself? Can he be forgiven? Tom Hiddleston (about Loki x )

    Well, I think it’s the most fascinating part of him, particular, as a specific character. It’s what distinguishes him from someone like The Joker, or any of the other characters really, is that he’s walking this tightrope between virtue and vice, between all-out evil and the possibility of redemption. There is a part of him… I always think, if you hate someone, then underneath it you still love them. Because you have to love them enough to care to hate them. The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. Tom Hiddleston ( about Loki x )

    The idea is… He’s someone who was brought up with the expectation of a particular entitlement. In Thor, Odin says to Thor and Loki as children, “Only one of you may ascend to the throne, but you were both born to be kings.” So Loki has been brought up with this expectation that he is born to rule. He’s a prince who deserves, as his birthright, a kingdom. He doesn’t have a kingdom in Asgard, he doesn’t have a kingdom in Jotunheim, and he’s come down to Earth to refashion the Earth as his own kingdom. Part of his motivation is, in that speech in Stuttgart, “It’s the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation.” And then he says to Thor, “The humans slaughter each other in droves while you idly fret. I need to rule them, brother.” I get the sense that he’s sort of like all the terrible autocratic fascists of human history. He’s laboring under the delusion that he’ll create some kind of world peace by uniting them in reverence of one king. And it’s an identity search. He’s desperate. He needs to belong. He’s so lacking in self esteem, that just like someone like Hitler, he needs to fill the void with adulation. Tom Hiddleston ( about Loki x )

    Yeah, yeah, exactly. So I think he makes a deal… and he’s being played too, by them. But I just think it’s interesting, actually, because we’re more interested in what that does to him as a character, because it gives us a justification for his increased menace. … He’s much darker, and more scarred.

    Yeah, we talked about it a lot. We talked about this idea that Loki disappears through that wormhole of space and time, when the Bifrost is destroyed, and he kind of goes through the Seventh Circle of Hell. And he’s on his own. He’s on his own in the dark corners of the universe, and the journey he goes on is pretty horrible. It’s like getting lost in the rainforest or something. You’re going to come out the other side a bit mangled on the outside, and on the inside. And he’s made this deal with Thanos and the Chitauri… Don’t reveal that. Tom Hiddleston ( about Loki x )
