x Tom Hiddleston might have already won the hearts of Marvel fans the world over with his beloved portrayal of mischievous anti-villain Loki, but he wouldn’t mind trying his hand at a different classic comic book antagonist in the MCU. Collider asked the long-running star of the franchise what other Marvel characters he might like to play. At first, Hiddleston suggested having a go at portraying a superhero, putting his name forward for the UK’s very own answer to Steve Rogers: Captain Britain. “Gosh, I don’t know. Is there a Captain Britain? Is he an interesting character? Probably there is.” He’s right, there is indeed a Captain Britain in Marvel’s library. Brian Braddock might not be as famous as his counterpart from across the pond, but he has a certain cult following. Comic book supremo Alan Moore even wrote a run of comics starring the character back in the 1980s and he’d definitely be a fun addition to the MCU. On second … [Read more...] about Tom Hiddleston Would Love To Play Galactus Or Captain Britain In The MCU
5 minutes ago With Avengers: Infinity War's long-awaited release finally upon us, it's worth taking a look back to see how other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have led to this moment. One clear film worth examining is The Avengers, which revealed Thanos to the world and showed us that there was a larger play in store. Of course, that also begs the question of whether or not Tom Hiddleston knew about Thanos when he was playing Loki in The Avengers, and according to the actor, he actually did because he asked Joss Whedon who Loki was working with. In a recent interview with CinemaBlend's own Eric Eisenberg, Hiddleston explained that, yes, he did know about Thanos early on, noting, It looks like it pays to be inquisitive. Loki was the first real big bad of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (which makes sense, as he was the first major villain The Avengers fought in the comics), but Tom Hiddleston had to know what the larger plan was during the production of Joss Whedon's first Marvel … [Read more...] about How Tom Hiddleston First Learned About Thanos In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

5 minutes ago Despite a whole lot of villainy, Tom Hiddleston's Loki has been a fan favorite character ever since he debuted in 2011's Thor. Sadly, though, his on-screen run may soon be coming to an end. It has been heavily rumored and predicted that the God of Mischief will die in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War... which understandably has his devotees a bit down. Thankfully, we now have a reassuring message from Hiddleston to hopefully give you some peace: It's important to mention now that Loki is a notorious liar, and can't really be trusted in any circumstance...but does it not still make you feel better to hear Tom Hiddleston say the words? I had the pleasure of sitting down with Hiddleston this past weekend during the Los Angeles junket for The Avengers: Infinity War. We had a great chat about Loki's relationship with Thanos -- which you'll be able to read about later this week here on CinemaBlend -- but our chat concluded with this calming statement. I asked if he … [Read more...] about Tom Hiddleston Has A Message For Fans Worried About Loki In Avengers: Infinity War
Avengers: Infinity War will finally pit Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against Thanos, fulfilling a promise that was made six years ago when the first Avengers film revealed that it was the Mad Titan who supported Loki’s invasion of New York. While the revelation was a surprise to most, actor Tom Hiddleston revealed that he had been informed of Thanos’ role ahead of time after asking director Joss Whedon about the details of Loki’s machinations. Hiddleston confirmed that he knew about Thano all along, having been told about the character after conversations with Joss Whedon: “I knew that ahead of time. I had to ask. I had lots of conversations with Joss Whedon, like, ‘Okay, so this scepter which can poison people’s minds, I can poison Stellan Skaarsgard, I can poison Jeremy Renner, why do I have that power? I open the wormhole and these aliens come. Who’s aliens are these? So, when I have that scene with The Other, who is he working … [Read more...] about ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Star Tom Hiddleston Was Told About Thanos Ahead Of Time
