Tom Hiddleston Says He Took Loki In A 'New Direction' For THOR: THE DARK WORLD,  Briefly Discusses James Bond

Actor Tom Hiddleston talked more about the mass appeal of Loki and continue to hint at a new dynamic for the God of Mischief in Thor: The Dark World. Plus, the actor briefly discusses playing 007.




Actor Tom Hiddleston was in attendance at the 2013 Jameson Empire Awards where he presented Helen Mirren with the Empire Legend Award. While walking the red carpet, Hiddleston naturally fielded a few questions about his next big Marvel Studios project Thor: The Dark World. Hiddleston was also one of a half-dozen of actors quizzed about one day stepping into Daniel Craig's James Bond wingtips.

"It's an extraordinary thing...truly..as an actor, when a character you play gets taken to heart by the imagination of the viewing public. Every character I've ever played, I've built with the same conviction, commitment, research and hopefully attention to detail. But Loki is someone, as a character - to my surprise, people really enjoy him and they enjoy his complication and enjoy his arrogance and his vanity and his villainy. Because of the first two films, Thor and The Avengers, in Thor: The Dark World, I've been able to take Loki in new directions, building on that larger platform for him to stand on."



"I'm such a huge fan of James Bond...I'd like to hope that I could attempt to bring a sort of British charm [to the role of 007], " said Hiddleston on potentially assuming the mantle of James Bond. Of course, this was all a hypothetical discussion.
