Thor’s latest film, Thor: Ragnarok, promises to be a sort of back to basics approach for the character. He’s stuck on a world where his powers don’t make him top dog. He has to fight his way out. The universe is in trouble and Asgard is kind of screwed.
You know, that old chestnut.
Now we don’t really know Loki’s (Tom Hiddleston) role in all of this. Last we saw of him, he was faking his death and impersonating Odin (Anthony Hopkins) to rule Asgard. Like one does.
In an interview with MTV International, Hiddleston did not reveal Loki’s intentions in the film. Although, I’m sure we’re going to hit a morally gray area.
Rather Hiddleston talked about why he’s so excited for this new film.
“(Director) Taika Waititi’s vision is awesome. In Norse mythology, Ragnarok means ‘the end of everything’ — the end of the world, the universe, time and space, so the stakes are quite high. Without revealing too much, the way that happens; the way it begins, it is just spectacular.”
It makes me wonder if, like in comics, it is less than end of the world and more of the end of Asgard. I think that would be an interesting angle to take, especially if you want the heroes at the lowest place possible when Thanos shows up.
(Yeah he’s coming.)
Now if we only know Loki’s motives going in…
Thor: Ragnarok will hit theatres November 2017.
