Tom Hiddleston put in a rather impressive performance when he portrayed the role of Loki in the Kenneth Branagh directed Marvel movie Thor. Tom is set to reprise his role as Loki in The Avengers, which is released next year and he is also expected to return to the role for Thor 2. However, Tom has revealed that he was very upset upon learning that Kenneth Branagh would not be returning to helm the movie.
Hiddleston explained, “You know, initially, I was sad that he wasn't coming back. When I had heard that he had chosen not to come I was very sad because I'm so proud of his achievements in directing that film. But, then, I understand why. He's very busy and he's got other things that he wants to do as an artist. As a director and as an actor.”
He added, “And Marvel is so clever, they know their own metal. They know how to do the comic book stuff. Car explosions and all the CGI and stuff, but they need someone who has a really great handle on story and actors and the muscularity of performance.” Thor 2 is currently pencilled in to be released on November 15, 2013 but that is subject to change.
