Tom Hiddleston Discusses Loki's Battles With Captain America and the Hulk in The Avengers
Posted 02.21.12 by Ryan
One thing's for sure, actor Tom Hiddleston enjoyed torturing the members of the Avengers as the treacherous Loki in the upcoming movie adaptation of the Marvel comic book.
While we still don't know what "army" Loki will employ against "Earth's Mightiest Heroes", Hiddleston admitted last September that Loki will "fight with everybody" in The Avengers and, last December, described his joy in throwing Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) out of a window.
While Hiddleston's favorite scene was admittedly one where he "flew around like a trapeze artist" in a NASA facility "in the company" of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson, Hiddleston revealed in the latest print edition of Total Film (via Comic Book Movie) that he also enjoyed beating the snot out of the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Captain America (Chris Evans).
I had huge fun with Chris Evans, as Captain America, because super-soldier though he may be, he’s still a man, up against a God who in his own mind is infinitely superior. Then, in the ring with The Hulk, we’ve got this silver tongued, lightening quick mind up against the embodiment of rage..Loki has this mercurial, transformative ability, not just physically but intellectually, so not all the fights are purely physical. Mind games? Maybe..
The Avengers was written and directed by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). The cast includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Coulson, Cobie Smulders S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
