Tom Hiddleston has appeared on the big screen twice as the character Loki, first in Thor and then in The Avengers, and he admits that he very much loved playing the villain. Tom has now praised Kieron Gillen for his portrayal of Loki in the Marvel Comics Journey Into Mystery.
Hiddleston wrote a letter to Gillen, saying “You and I see Loki the same way. He's one dark, anarchic, bottomless black hole of rage, hatred, pity and pain. An exiled outcast, a lost and lonely agent of chaos, who wouldn't know what to do with familial forgiveness if it walked up to him in the street and slapped him in the face.”
He added, “I've had as much fun playing him as you've clearly had writing up. I know your run on Journey Into Mystery has been so hugely popular. What an enormous honour to share Loki's legacy with you. Here's to bringing Norse back.”
Kieron Gillen ended his run on Journey Into Mystery this week with issue #654 and the note from Tom Hiddleston appears on the letters section of the comic.
Tom Hiddleston is set to reprise his role as Loki for a third time in the movie Thor: The Dark World, which is currently filming and is set to be released on November 8, 2013.
