So that was really the interesting place to start with Loki – he was somebody that’s been brought up a prince in a royal family with the expectation that one day he would be a king. And through the course of that film he learned that the entire narrative of his life is a lie; that he was actually the illegitimate son of a monster, left out in the cold, adopted and then cheated. So he’s essentially this damaged soul whose heartbreak hardened into a menace and a megalomania and a vanity and an arrogance and a pride – which I hope is why you can’t entirely hate him because underneath of all that villainy is a damaged soul.
