Thor 2: Chris Hemsworth Says Loki May Need to Apologize in Sequel
05.18.12 by Ryan
After causing trouble as the primary antagonist in both Thor and The Avengers, Marvel president Kevin Feige has said that Loki (Tom Hiddleston) won't be the primary villain in Thor 2. "You can’t do a Thor movie without Loki," he said last month. but Thor will be tackling "another big villain" in the sequel.
That doesn't mean that the brothers won't continue the contentious relationship from Thor, The Avengers, and decades of comic book history. Hiddleston said last month that he hoped Thor 2 would answer the questions of whether "Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and Thor [can] find forgiveness for Loki in their own hearts" and whether "Loki [can] accept that forgiveness." Apparently, Chris Hemsworth agrees.
"He's got to apologize, doesn't he?" Hemsworth recently said of Loki to Total Film. "Baked goods. Muffins or something. That would be a bribe we could start with. Beyond that, I don't know."
Whatever happens, Hemsworth says the complexity of Thor and Loki's relationship will continue.
It's what I loved about the comics. It was never clean and cut and that's it. It was always like, Thor would forgive him, they'd be friends, and Loki would betray him again. "You idiot, Thor! Again?" But it was different than your normal good guy, bad guy scenario. They're brothers, you know? Anyone with siblings understands that. "That's it, I'm never talking to you again… want to play football?"
Thor 2 will be directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, Palookaville) and written by Thor screenwriter Don Payne, with Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan) hired handling rewrites since January. Jamie Alexander will return as the Asgardian warrior Sif, and Idris Elba is also confirmed to return as Heimdall. Natalie Portman will also return as Jane Foster, and Feige has said that her relationship with Thor will be "the crux of the sequel."
