British actor Tom Hiddleston is attending the Toronto Film Festival this week where a screening of his new film “High Rise” proved to be one of the most divisive movies of the festival.
Of course Hiddleston is best known for his role as the villainous Loki in the various Marvel Cinematic Universe films, most notably the “Thor” franchise. It has been a while since we last saw him though, the next appearance expected (but not certain) to be “Thor: Ragnarok”.
Collider spoke with him at the fest and asked him if he has read the script of the next “Thor” and when he will next appear in a Marvel film:
“I’m sorry to say I have nothing to give you. I literally have nothing. I don’t know what’s happening. [laughs] That’s what I know, that’s literally the limits of what I know. Honestly, I don’t know. It’s all in Kevin Feige’s brain. It feels like the Marvel Universe is expanding at such a rate, and I wish – I’m not being coy – I don’t know where Loki fits into that. So we’ll see. Your guess is as good as mine.”
One film Hiddleston can talk about is “Kong: Skull Island” which he will begin shooting early next year and is his immediate next project:
“Well, Kong: Skull Island is the next thing on the books. It’s so exciting. I’ve been digging around in some dark material, to be honest. There’s something very heroic about my character in Skull Island. He’s an adventurer, he’s an explorer. I mean, it’s a King Kong film. There we go. [laughs] The way Jordan Vogt-Roberts has conceived of it, there’s something in there which I find very compelling about King Kong as an emblem of the power of nature in some way, and man’s relationship to it. I think he’s got just brilliant ideas about exploring that. Incredible sequences, a particular context they put King Kong in that you’ve never see him in before, so I’m really excited.”
“High Rise” is currently targeting a late 2015 release.
