Tom Hiddleston Teases Hulk v Loki Rematch In Thor: Ragnarok
Expect more lols this time.
Remember Hulk vs. Loki? One of the greatest, most enjoyably one-sided smackdowns in comic-book movie history, and probably the funniest moment in the original Avengers movie? Well we might be about to get a second round, with Tom Hiddleston teasing the prospect of a rematch in upcoming sequel, Thor: Ragnarok.
We already knew that Mark Ruffalo’s big green rage-ball would be showing up in the next Thor movie, while Loki will also be making mischief in Asgard once more, and according to Hiddleston, there’s unfinished business between the pair…
“Let’s not forget that it’s no secret that the Hulk shows up in Ragnarok,” says Hiddleston, “and the last time Loki and Hulk were in the same room, it didn’t go very well for Loki. So he’s got a few chips on his shoulder, but it’s fun you’ll see.”
It also sounds like we’re in for a few more laughs this time around… “I think tonally it’s a big shift in a great way, more than anything we’ve seen before,” continues Hiddleston. “Taika Waititi, the director, if you know any of his work he’s just an incredible sort of comedic talent, a lot of heart in everything he does. It’s a very different Thor, it’s a different Loki.”
It might be a different Loki, but unless he’s been seriously bulking up, our money is still on Hulk. Thor: Ragnarok opens in the UK on 27 October 2017.
