Exclusive: Tom Hiddleston Talks THE AVENGERS at D23; Says ‘Loki Goes Toe to Toe With Every Superhero’

     August 20, 2011

Tom Hiddleston THE AVENGERS D23 interview slice

If there was any debate if Loki was the main villain in Marvel’s upcoming Avengers movie, Tom Hiddleston ended it today.  That’s because backstage at D23 (essentially Disney’s Comic-Con), I got to speak with Hiddleston and he told me:

“Loki goes toe to toe with every superhero.  I have had a one on one with Robert Downey Jr. A one on one with Chris Hemsworth.  A one on one with Scarlett.  A one on one with Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Sam Jackson.  And it’s so exciting to see how the different chemistry is.  Not just between the actors.  So my one on one with Robert becomes a battle of wit’s and words.  My one on one with Chris Hemsworth ends up in both of us knocking ten bells (I think that’s what he said) again because that’s how we communicate.  It’s been the most exciting thing I’ve ever done.  It’s giant and will be amazing.”

Hit the jump to watch the interview.  He also tells a great story about the restaurant Chili’s and seeing movies in Albuquerque.

Finally, look for a lot more video interviews from D23 in the coming hours.
