Marvel
star
Tom
Hiddleston
says
the
“vulnerabilities”
of
his
character
Loki
draws
people
towards
the
God
of
Mischief,
who
is
finally
stepping
out
of
his
brother
Thor’s
shadow
in
the
eponymous
standalone
Marvel
Cinematic
Universe
(MCU)
series.

Loki


Loki
,
Marvel
Studios’
third
series
at
Disney
Plus,
centres
on
Hiddleston’s
witty
master
of
magic,
who
lands
at
Time
Variance
Authority
(TVA)
following
the
events
of
2019’s
feature
film

Avengers:
Endgame
.
While
the
movies
have
mainly
touched
upon
Loki’s
mischievous
side,
the
series
aims
to
give
an
insight
into
what
hides
beneath
the
wickedness
of
the
fan-favourite
villain.

“I
think
over
time
I’m
made
aware
of
the
different
things
he
represents.
Some
people
enjoy
his
playfulness,
his
spontaneity
and
that
inherent
sense
of
mischief
he
has.
Some
people
enjoy
his
quality
as
an
antagonist.
There
are
some
people
who
are
drawn
to
his
vulnerabilities,
under
all
these
layers
of
charm
and
charisma.
There
is
something
really
relatable
about
his
vulnerability,” Hiddleston
said
during
a
virtual
global
press
conference
ahead
of
the
show’s
premiere
on
Wednesday.

The
British
star,
who
has
played
the
character
in
six
MCU
movies


Thor

(2011),

The
Avengers

(2012),

Thor:
The
Dark
World

(2013),

Thor:
Ragnarok

(2017),

Avengers:
Infinity
War

(2018),
and

Endgame


said
he
owes
his
success
to
all
the
writers
who
have
contributed
in
creating
the
admirable
antagonist.

“I
owe
it
to
the
writers,
everyone
who
has
ever
written
this
character.
Starting
from
Stan
Lee,
Jack
Kirby,
Don
Payne,
who
wrote
the
first
four
movies,
way
to
Michael
(series
writer
Waldron)
and
his
amazing
team.” Loki’s
range
as
a
character,
makes
his
job
even
more
exciting,
said
Hiddleston,
adding
that
working
on
the
series
was
a
joyful
experience
as
he
got
to
team
up
with
people
who
could
resonate
with
his
passion
for
the
story.

The
series
is
directed
by

Sex
Education

fame
Kate
Herron
and
executive
produced
by
Marvel
Studios
chief
Kevin
Feige.
It
also
marks
the
MCU
debut
of
Hiddleston’s

Midnight
In
Paris

co-star
Owen
Wilson
as
well
as

The
Morning
Show

star
Gugu
Mabtha-Raw.
The
40-year-old
actor
said
Loki
is
a
“character
of
huge
range”
and
playing
the
role
always
feels
like
a
new
experience.

“I
just
love
playing
Loki.
I
feel
so
fortunate
that
I’m
still
here
and
there
are
just
new
aspects
to
the
character
every
time
that
I
learn
about,”
he
said.
“Particularly
this
time
around
I’m
surrounded
by
these
amazing
people.
All
my
conversations
with
Kevin,
Kate,
and
Michael
and
interactions
with
Owen
and
Gugu.
We
just
had
a
really
good
time,”
he
added.

Hiddleston,
who
also
serves
as
a
executive
producer
on
the
series,
said
he
was
offered
the
project
some
time
between

Infinity
War

and

Endgame
.
The
actor
said
he
was
surprised
and
delighted
with
the
idea
of
a
stand-alone
show
on
Loki.
“I
was
so
excited
by
the
idea
of
series
and
also
had
to
scratch
my
head
a
bit
because
that
scene
in

Infinity
War

(when
Thanos
kills
Loki)
felt
so
final
and
conclusive.
It
looked
like
end
of
Loki’s
story.”

It
was
after

Endgame

when
they
were
finally
able
to
figure
out
the
future
of
Loki
in
MCU,
added
Feige.
“We
didn’t
know
about
the
Loki
series
when
we
shot

Infinity
War
,
but
I
think
we
did
know
it
when
we
shot

Endgame
,”
he
said.

Over
the
years,
the

Thor

franchise,
which
as
yet
comprises
three
movies
led
by
Chris
Hemsworth

has
build
a
huge
fan
base
courtesy
its
funny
take
on
the
characters
of
Thor
and
Loki.
Feige
said
the
humour
in
the
franchise
was
never
forced
and
came
organically
as
the
actors
started
to
build
upon
the
characters.

“I
think
Thor
and
Loki
had
a
certain
amount
of
humour
in
the
comics
over
the
decades.
But
the
answer
comes
down
to
the
performers
and
the
remarkable
talent
of
Mr.
Hemsworth
and
Mr.
Hiddleston
and
the
range
to
be
hilarious.
“It
was
not
a
plan
to
make
it
funnier
now,
they
have
always
been
funny
and
we
took
the
fun
from
behind
the
scenes
and
put
it
on
camera,”
he
said.


Loki

will
stream
in
India
on
Disney+
Hotstar
Premium.
