Tom Hiddleston pulled off his Comic-Con stunt by dressing as Jango Fett on the plane

On Sunday, we covered Tom Hiddleston’s Loki-tastic (Lokitasm?) appearance at Comic-Con, which was one of the most buzzed-about events of the whole nerd-fest. Tom appeared in character as Loki at the panel discussion for Thor 2: The Dark World, and he commanded the nerds to bow down to him. They did. I thought it was pretty cool, especially as a way to reward the die-hard fans who show up at Comic-Con. Do I find Tom to be cloying and twee? Of course. But on this, I was on his side. It was a great stunt and he sold it beautifully. After the stunt/Loki theatrics, Tom spoke to the Los Angeles Times about how the whole thing came to be.

LAT’s Hero Complex: How much fun was that?
TH: It was fun. It was absolutely amazing. It’s only my second time in Hall H. The last time I was in Hall H was three years ago, Comic-Con 2010, with Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor.” It was just a panel with Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman and myself and Kat Dennings and Ken Branagh. Three years ago, people, I think, weren’t that familiar with the character of Thor and certainly didn’t know what to expect from the film. So to come back, with all of what’s happened in the space in between, is kind of amazing really. Loki’s kind of been taken to the hearts of the home team. To go out there in costume, adrenaline was coursing through my body in a way that I haven’t had in a while.

HC: There are so many people who come here to celebrate the new movies, but rarely do they get to see an onstage performance involving the characters.
TH: Indeed. I went to drama school to train as a stage actor, but to six-and-a-half-thousand strong? That’s the biggest gig I’ve ever played for sure.

HC: Whose idea was this?
TH: [Marvel movie chief] Kevin Feige. He called me about two and a half weeks ago and said, “So, Tom, I’ve just got an idea that I’m just going to run by you.” I knew I was going to come to Comic-Con, but I didn’t know I was going to come in character. He sort of said, “How about you just come in character and you don’t break character at all and you introduce the footage? Give a whole kind of encore to the two films?”

I was so excited, but I initially got a little worried because I didn’t want to say things that Loki wouldn’t say. I didn’t want to say “Here’s the clip” or “Roll trailer.” I figured it had to be within the integrity of the character. I wrote some things. We tried to make it really simple; I didn’t want to overstay my welcome. It was cool, it was great. It was basically a top-secret stealth mission by Kevin and myself. Nobody else knew about it. I just got an email from Chris Hemsworth this morning, who didn’t know about it. Kevin just said to everyone else, “We’re not doing a panel, we’re just going to show the trailer.” I really wanted it to be a surprise, and that’s the hardest thing in our world now is to keep something so secret that it’s actually a surprise. I had to fly in — this is no joke — I flew in to San Diego from London as Jango Fett from the “Star Wars” films because I knew that if I was seen in San Diego there would be a picture on Twitter or Instagram or Facebook, “I’ve just seen Thomas in the San Diego airport, I’ve just seen him in the hotel. He’s obviously here for ‘Thor 2.’”

HC: Did you already have a Jango Fett costume?
TH: No, I had to go and find.

HC: Why that character?
TH: I’m 6 foot 2. It was the only one that fit in the costume shop. They were sold out of Stormtroopers.

HC: Why did you pick a character from the “Star Wars” universe? Is that a subtle message to J.J. Abrams?
TH: No (laughs). I was just like, no Marvel. If I come as Iron Man, it’s too obvious. But if J.J. wants to read it as a subtle message, I’m fine with that.

HC: Did it feel different for you to put on the costume and perform Loki in front of a live audience rather than play him on a film set?
TH: Entirely. I hope to high heaven that I never give a performance of that scale onscreen. It was big, shall we say. I’m used to working with directors who say less is more, whereas yesterday it was kind of a 21-gun salute. The size of the character. He has an epic dimension anyway. He’s a god and he believes he is a super being. He has contempt for the human race. There was a sort of electric charged atmosphere with the audience yesterday. As a live performer, I never forget that. It’s a very unique thing. You don’t get it onscreen with a camera. A camera is something you have to project that charge onto. It doesn’t come for free. It’s a mechanical, technological entity. Whereas with an audience, it’s a chemistry; you can feel something coming off them.

Stage actors talk about this a lot — the audience, whether they know about it are actually complicit in the standard of the show that night. If they’re in a good mood, if they’re leaning forward, they’re listening, the actors can sense that within seconds and the show is often better. The atmosphere yesterday was out of control. When I walked out onstage, I was confronted with a wall of sound and fury, to quote the bard. It was extraordinary. I couldn’t see, I couldn’t hear for the first five seconds.

HC: It was a big day for Hall H. All of the X-Men were there…
TH: So I hear, and it was right before me. I said to someone as I was walking in, ‘So, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, they were all out there just now. And now, it’s just me.’ Yeah. I was kind of nervous.

[From the Los Angeles Times]

He came to Comic-Con dressed as Jango Fett?!!?!!? OMG. Why are there not photos of that? It reminds me of another story I heard from Comic-Con – Hugh Jackman said he walked around in character as Wolverine and no one believed it was really him. I guess that’s the secret to Comic-Con – you can hide in plain sight if you’re dressed up in character. Here’s Loki at Comic-Con again:

    He is awesome. (Watch the clip)

  2. Vesta says:

    I know he’s hungry for publicity but I just love that black-and-white picture…So lovely.

  3. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    This story totally just made my day. Amazing. :D

  4. Lizzie says:

    That stunt is the kind of Hiddleston enthusiasm I can get behind. it wouldn’t have worked without complete sincerity.
    It was very cool,

  5. Elodie says:

    I flew in to San Diego from London as Jango Fett from the “Star Wars” films because I knew that if I was seen in San Diego there would be a picture on Twitter or Instagram or Facebook, “I’ve just seen Thomas in the San Diego airport, I’ve just seen him in the hotel. He’s obviously here for ‘Thor 2.’”

    -___-”

    OMG call me a bitch all you want but this dude is seriously exhausting!.. yes you have rabid fans but calm down with the delusion of grandeur… at the end of the day since Thor is coming in November, people were already talking about it being at Comic Con this year ages ago, whether you or Hemsworth or Portman would have been spotted in the area, it wouldn’t have been some spoiler, rather obviously pleasant… gosh..!

    or then it’s the heat is getting on my nerves and I’ve been pissed all day long… ah well never mind…

    • Eve says:

      Finally! A cynic like myself — I agree wholeheartedly.

      By the way, he’s somewhat telling the truth when he says that dressing like Jango Fett wasn’t a subtle message to J.J.Abrahams — that was a damn obvious one.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Agree. Subtlety and Hiddleston are two words that don’t really go together.

      • Lindy79 says:

        Agreed, Thor had been heavily advertised in San Diego in the weeks leading up to SDCC so people were expecting something.

        He would also give his left nut to be in Star Wars..I don’t think he has much time left as Loki to be honest, so he’s looking for his next big movie.

      • Elodie says:

        LOL @ Eve, I didn’t know we were a minority or something..? Oh well…

        No seriously, I’m so tired of his try hard behaviour. Like OMG chill the F*** out dude, you are loved enough by them crazies already don’t overdo it ffs! To say that forehead should be intelligent… uh okay!

        Yeah didn’t he say he was up for Star Wars? Like it’s already isn’t enough of a tragedy that there is another Star Wars being made AND by f***ing JJ Abrams… no Hiddleston dude stay away bye!

        OMG Kaiser a big NO at the “Lokitasm” there shouldn’t be another word out of Loki, “Loki’d” is already burning my eardrums.

      • Sixer says:

        I suppose hinting to JJ is better than getting your own make-up test for The Crow/not really getting your own make-up test for The Crow, but telling everyone you have/generally getting egg on your face.

        He looks a bit like Data, you know. When he’s in panstick mode.

      • Eve says:

        @ Elodie:

        “LOL @ Eve, I didn’t know we were a minority or something..? Oh well…”

        At that point (when you posted your comment) everybody was finding the interview/dressing as Jango Fett cute.

        I was waiting for someone to say something negative so I wouldn’t be the first one to rain on everybody’s parade. Ha!

      • Lindy79 says:

        @Sixer

        He did what?!? Did he really try to convince people had a make up trial for The Crow?? Holy f*ckballs…

        The fact he even thought he was suitable for that role gives me Nerd Rage.

      • Miss M says:

        @Eve: bring your negative/cynical self to the Cumby post. That one where he is sitting next to the blonde model.

      • Eve says:

        @ Miss M:

        Nah…it’s so much better here! :D TommyannE always makes it so easy for us to criticize him.

        I’d love if there was a post about Paul Walker and his underage girlfriend/fiancée but…he isn’t *that* popular around here (or elsewhere).

      • Elodie says:

        I was waiting for someone to say something negative so I wouldn’t be the first one to rain on everybody’s parade. Ha!

        LOL! I shall piss on the rainbow parade tbh, dude is just annoying as a pebble in the shoe, overcompensating every f***king answer or story or whatever stuff he has to share…baffles me how people (rabid fans) think of him as some highly superior intelligent dude… even Shakespeare must be telling him from his grave to kindly f*** off in terms of name dropping, but this dude won’t hear it.

      • Sixer says:

        @ Lindy – so it was said. The whole thing was a PR disaster with all sides blaming the other. I don’t think there’s any doubt the Tomster really did want the role, though.

        @ Elodie – but I think he is bright. Even an Eton cramming doesn’t get you all the way to a double first at Cambridge, even if it is in Classics and even if Eton did help. So y’know. He’s either bright and, well, tasteless. Or what he says isn’t what he thinks.

      • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:

        Omg the try hard! The try hard! This man is starved for fame, he doesnt just want it, he needs it, and there is nothing subtle about it.

        He looks lovely, and i love his sweetness, but his Nerd HQ made me want to get the ball gag.

      • Miss M says:

        @Eve: low, so low… even for you Eve. He’s girlfriend (former girlfriend) is not underage anymore, she is 23… Besides, I really don’t care about him anymore. I divorced and I am much happier with my new CBman–> Hunnam.

      • Eve says:

        @ Miss M:

        Oh, yes, I went there :evil: .

        Well, she’s not underage anymore but he went for the kill when she was (maybe even younger — who knows? She was known to be sixteen when their relationship became public, but they could have been dating for a while).

        And you claim Charlie Hunnam as you CB husband, uh? Excellent…*tents fingers à la Mr. Burns*

      • Miss M says:

        @Eve: I meant to say His girlfriend*… That’s why I divorced him, he is no longer my CB husband. Hunnam is not my CBhusband, he is my CBman. Show some respect, he has a live in girlfriend! :)

    • Lilly says:

      He thinks hes way bigger than he is probably because he spends his evening googling himself. The guy has under 600,000 twitter followers for godsakes. Thats local-beauty-pageant-runners-up territory.

    • Samtha says:

      Maybe I’m missing something, but he wasn’t scheduled to be there, right? Even if it was common knowledge there would be some type of Thor 2 panel? If people spotted him, it wouldn’t have spoiled that Thor 2 was being represented at Comic Con, but it WOULD have spoiled that he was taking part, and his appearance as Loki there wouldn’t have come as such a surprise for people.

      Hiddleston is definitely a try-hard, but hiding the fact that he’s there doesn’t seem illogical when the intent is to surprise the audience…

      • Elodie says:

        Yeah I get that he wanted to make a surprise but it wouldn’t have been a spoiler per se, people would have been even more excited, or at least the fans. And I think that since they couldn’t get Hemsworth due to conflict schedule and perhaps same for Portman but not sure about her, they came up with the “genius” back up plan only 2 weeks prior to Comic Con to bring him up, given how Loki has a fanbase.

        Anyway my point was more on the he thinks he is way bigger, because honestly when you don’t want to be seen, you can… even Brad Pitt and Jolie can!.. so the whole dressing up as a Star Wars character so he wouldn’t be recognized.. okay we get it dude… enough!.. *smash*

      • Crumpets & Crotchshots says:

        I think it is very easy for him not to be seen. He had half a dozen fans waiting for him at Cannes. This man thinks he is Mick Jagger.

      • Samtha says:

        @Crumpets & Crotchshots and @Elodie: I don’t think it’s exactly the same, though, since he was going to Comic-Con, a place where they would almost definitely recognize him.

        There are a lot of eye-roll-worthy things about Hiddleston (he’s like the male Hathaway), but wanting to surprise the fans just doesn’t ding my “oh please” meter. :)

  6. Amelia says:

    Mark Gatiss!!
    Sorry, anything to do with Sherlock and I’m gone :)
    Speaking of hiding in plain sight, there’s a few pictures on Simon Pegg’s twitter feed of him with a helmet of some sort on, just strolling around the Comic-Con floor.

  7. cutiesark says:

    I cant stand the guy. He really makes me want to puke. A big fat fake.

  8. Jordan says:

    This is probably his last Marvel film (hopefully) . Then he will go back to whatever he was doing before Loki. Let the man finish his fame.

  9. Samtha says:

    Not to be semi off topic, but what is up with Hemsworth? Thor 2 is his movie–why wasn’t he there?

  10. Annie says:

    I’ve tried so hard liking the hiddles. So hard. But I cannot get into him for the life of me. Don’t know if its his fangirls or his twitter I don’t know. He just rubs me the wrong way. He’s all yours hiddlestoners.

  11. Anna says:

    “I just got an email from Chris Hemsworth this morning, who didn’t know about it.”
    - I am DYING to know what was in that email. Was Chris pissed? I’d be pissed. Beware the rage of Thor and his mighty hammer!

  12. Wishy-Washy says:

    I wish he would just go away & take his fangirls with him. He gets Too much attention

    • mom2two says:

      +1
      He is a good actor. But he is oh so grating. Naturally he dressed like Jengo Fett to send a subtle message to JJ Abrams.
      Just be point blank about it like Matt Smith, who when asked about Star Wars, I forget his exact response but it was basically summed up as “Hell yes!”
      Please JJ, no Hiddles in Star Wars. No Cumberbatch either. Thanks.

  13. Helsbels says:

    He’s probably plotting already to grab Cumberbatch’s Star Wars role. If Feige snubbed the rest of the Thor cast then I cant believe Hiddleston is Mr popular with them right now. Shouldnt Eccleston be getting the attention.

    • MissThing says:

      I did wonder about that myself. Why wasn’t Eccleston there at the very least… On the other hand, Feige is a very savvy businessman and knows where the money is coming from right now, and at the moment, Tom is the cash-cow.

  14. Pants says:

    As himself he does nothing for me… As Loki, well that’s a different story ;)

  15. gensou says:

    Feel like the videos of these interviews might feed the discussion further.

  16. Linda L says:

    Glad the CC fans got to experience Loki being a diva- sounded like fun for them. Happy that other fans at CC got to mingle w/their idols, too. Good times!

    TH- sigh. I know actors need to promote the hell out of themselves to get work. But, he seems to be ALWAYS grasping for some sort of attention. Between his complete overuse of metaphors and cliches on “how to live your life like me! and his adolescent, “look-at-ME-I’m-pretending-to-be-a-dinosaur/horse/dancing queen” antics, methinks he’s got serious issues. I think he’s very handsome/photogenic, and not a bad actor. But, his grind is exhausting. And contrived, deliberate, sometimes cringe-worthy.

    Been around actors my whole life (parents were involved in the business end). Trust me- they were the most broken, damaged, needy, self-absorbed ppl I’ve ever encountered. I do not see TH as a paragon of perfection and wisdom. I see him, like all performers- as needing to feed off this attention. His “Prince-Charming-boy-next-door” *image* is just that. SMH at this utter worship that gets thrown his way.

    To quote Bono (who would know): You don’t become a rock star [actor] unless you’ve got something missing somewhere. That is obvious. If you were of sound mind or a more complete person, you could feel normal without (70,000) people a night screaming their love for you.
    THAT’S how is see this guy.
    JMO- I know his stans LOVE him. And that’s OK, too. I just- ugh.

  17. Dani says:

    He seems like an annoying, over eager frat boy but he has a really nice face. Like, he’s extremely attractive when he doesn’t speak.

  18. Mandy says:

    He is so much hotter with long hair.

  19. Londongal says:

    I have *such* a soft-spot for him!

  20. Sloane Wyatt says:

    LOKI! LOKI!

    I bow down before you as I am unworthy of your divinity. *whimpers*

  21. Feebee says:

    Two things struck me “just seen Thomas at the airport” not Tom but Thomas, ha! And I’d give anything to see him walking around as a bloody stormtrooper.

  22. Ginger says:

    Kaiser thanks for this bit of fun on a boringwork day! I’m having a total fan girl reaction to the video. I’m jealous of all 6000 in that hall!! The official vid is good but the fans videos are as well to taste the pure reaction of the fans who were lucky enough to be there! No wonder Tom was overwhelmed!

  23. Razar says:

    Can this guy go away? This is coming from an Englishman. Between his delusional stans and his PR trying to make him bigger than what he really is it is getting out of hand. What else is he really known for besides Thors adopted brother? America you can have hiddleston.

    • MissThing says:

      Why thank you sir, I think we will keep him then.

      WE Americans happen to really LIKE him.

    • Linda L says:

      @Side-Eye:
      Agree. In the US, he’s hardly on anyone’s radar, except for his 14-yr-old stans on Tumblr. Despite the *hysteria* from a very, very small area of the Internet, most ppl have no idea who he is.
      The Avengers was his most commercial role, obviously. This was very much an ensemble movie, too. Not everyone is a comic book movie fan- and most ppl are WAY more aware of RDJ than TH here. He’s not yet proven to be a leading man (mostly he’s done small bits in films)- but he’s *desperately* working on changing that. Not so sure about hitching your star solely onto Loki… Time will tell.
      He’s a decent actor and a handsome man. Perhaps there is room for a tall, skinny upper-class Englishman in the movies. We shall see.
      As long as he sticks to the script, he might be OK. What are the chances that he’s going to stop the eye-rolling behavior, though?

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        You know, it’s interesting that you’ve mentioned RDJ in comparison to TH. It got me thinking:

        Tom has the “I’m a very very nice, humble guy bordering on Prince Charming” golden retriever shtick going on. His Tumblr fans eat it up at face value but those of us who can read between the lines and have a good grip on reality see where the cracks are.* Meanwhile, RDJ is openly and unapologetically full of himself, but at the same time, you can tell that despite this, there is a good guy who owns his flaws and cares about others. He knows he has had to work his way to the top again and again and he appreciates where he is at and the work he has had to put into it.

        Of the two PR strategies, RDJ’s is much, much smarter and saner. When he makes a mistake, there is more room for forgiveness. And RDJ has learned the virtue of patience. His career didn’t explode right off the bat. He had to earn back trust to score the role of Iron Man, which happened in his forties. Tom could stand to pay attention to that and see what he could learn, you know?

        *I’m not saying that I think Tom isn’t a nice guy. I do think that he has an essential kindness, but it’s in danger of losing way to his insecurities and need for fame.

        **I can’t believe I just wrote an essay about this. I clearly need to find more productive ways to spend my days off. :P

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Yeah, he ain’t that famous. To me, if I hadn’t read this site, he’d be “that hot dark haired guy from Thor”. That’s it. Maybe time will tell if he becomes anything more, but that’s what he is at this point.

  24. Jane says:

    Tom as himself=cute and cuddly.
    Tom dressed as Loki= a God (I don’t care that Hulk called him a Puny God, still sexy as h*** all the same) THUD When people ask me what I see in him I say, “It’s a Loki thing. You just wouldn’t understand” LOL

  25. JLo says:

    I guess I’m the only person that gets the sociopath vibe from Hiddles?

    I love that he gave the fans an experience that was fun and memorable, even if he kept having to wipe the smirk off his face.

  26. Crumpets & Crotchshots says:

    What I want to know: What costume did Lyke wear? He had to have something, because his presence is always a dead giveaway that Tom is no more than five feet away.

    Maybe a Princess Leia bikini?

  27. Anne De Vries says:

    I never much cared for him and I never cared much for Loki as a character, but I’m kind of sold now. Plus I love the image of him flying in full costume to keep up the ruse :-)

  28. flower says:

    Flirting with the girls during the con, heh, his “gf” must be so thrilled… lol. Never quit the roll bro.

  29. Browniecakes says:

    Too bad he couldn’t line up some LA meetings while nearby. Sounds like he went home asap. Maybe the exposure from the Loki riff will impress the people he wants jobs with. The NERD HQ video is worth it for the Fassbender’s scripts comments and the audition rejection comments. I cannot watch it again because I want to stay in love, so don’t ask me the time codes.

  30. Nessa says:

    Hi…well, I am not hiddlestoner, more Loki fan, indeed the character in the movie universe and in the mythology(from a long while ago). But this dude was awsome from the first time I saw him in Wallander. I watched others movies of him and is all are cool (ummm not the one with Rachel Weizs, that movie was awfull, only both of them worth to look). I wonder, why did people who doesn’t like him actually read about him? I mean, I read all I can about him because I like him (again I am no hiddlestoner, I am not rabid fan, I just like the guy). I am thinking, if your boss pay you for do a job, then you do the job, like I do in my job… so I guess, if Feige say :”you must do this…” the guy do it… and this time he make his fans enjoy for a few 4 minutes (no, I wasn’t there, I watched on youtube). C’mon, Thomas allready have projects and actually filming,and after in theatre, really think that need publicity for what allready is public (and all tickets sold in few minutes?) why is so bad that? can he have his fans like all of perfomer in show bussines have (and they are some no talent with fans)? And I wonder how if you think too bad of him… how come all people who works with him actually stay friend? none of he coworkers or formers coworkers say a single thing bad about him, on the contrary they allways say about humble and nice Thomas is (yes, I call him Thomas, just to make me apart from hiddlestoners who call him other ways)… all of them. And about humility, like he is not caring for others, the guy works for UNICEF did you know? finishing (god, it was longgg!) I am 35… not 14-teen… so his fandom have all ages… greetings to you all . Peace

    • Sixer says:

      Hi Nessa. I wouldn’t take it to heart. Mostly, the ladeez on here just enjoy mocking the guys they fancy. People are just riffing off one another for the most part. And y’know. It’s as cool to speak and say you don’t like something/someone as it is to speak and say you do.

      It’s true there’s little peer bitchery about Hiddles. But these actors rarely bitch about one another (unless they’re low rent types). It’s all about networking. They all need friends.

    • Linda L says:

      @Nessa:
      Hello! I know for me, this site was a breath of fresh air from ALL the other places that put this actor on such an unbelievable pedestal. It rather restores balance to the universe, in a way. Instead of OMG-he’s-P.E.R.F.E.C.T!!!, there’s some
      sanity that questions things he does/says, with humor and snark. No hate, just a different point of view.

      As far as other actors saying they like him- they have been doing that since the beginning of time. We all have ppl at work that grate on our nerves. Imagine a profession of neurotic, needy, insecure people. Yikes! They stick to the company line, of course, and say, “Yes, that person is lovely/brilliant/generous” b/c they have a product to sell. You will ALWAYS hear them say that about each other, even when you KNOW it cannot be true (not singling out TH). Not saying ppl don’t work well together, but that is the illusion of show business. It’s NOT real life- it’s fantasy.

      You are most welcomed to post all the positive comments about how much you love this actor (and visit his Tumblr site, as they worship him like a deity). Here, we are also allowed to comment on the things that make us go Hmmm? And that’s OK, too.

      • Nessa says:

        ok… there again… free will is the gift of humans…and you are freeto use it. I am no one to stop anyone to do this. Express yourself is the best thing ever.
        No, darling …I DON’T love the guy, and specially don’t worship anyone except my mom who gave me birth, no one is PERFECT except her (less of all a dude who I don’t know and I will never meet) get the idea?
        I like him and that is all, I have no Tumblr, or other place except my FB and is for family away from here who I cannot see often… get the idea again?
        I found the character far more attractive because his background is similar to mine (no, I am no killer or psycho, but is no worth to say here).
        I would like to see how “good” others are about Megan Fox or Russel Crowe… no positives some times, am I wrong?
        Well, is not my point to make a huge deal with this, I was just trying to say what I felt when I saw the comments, no mean to discuss anything (and actually I never write comments in this places, just found it interesting to have a first time, you think I shouldn’t done it?).
        Sorry if I offended any one, not intended to. First time I repeat (and even my mother language is spanish, I am trying my best with english here).
        So… godd to met new people with different opinions (if we all think the same world will be absolutely bored, and worthless).

        And I still consider my self sanity (the fact that I like the guy make me insane?).

        Peace, again.

    Empire Magazine’s interview with Marvel pres Kevin Feige about Loki’s future:
    “On the topic of Loki, Feige refused to admit that the mischievous Norse god won’t be in the Avengers sequel – despite Joss Whedon saying something to that effect on a recent Empire Podcast – but did have something very intriguing to say on the character…

    “We think Loki could be the big bad for us, for a long time,” said Feige. Seeing so many Lokis on the floor at Comic-Con tells the Marvel team “to keep following their instincts…”

    This implies that Loki may well survive the events of Thor: The Dark World, living to cause trouble another day, something that is very intriguing indeed considering the trailer shown at Comic-Con. This might be another classic case of Marvel misdirection, but it’s worth filing away in the back of the brain for when it does (or doesn’t) come to light on The Dark World’s October 30 release.”

      They’ve got him for five films, most likely on the cheap.

      Of all the cast and characters that could have been marched out at comic con, they chose him. And the reaction was extraordinary.

      Marvel is not stupid. And they like to keep secrets. A Loki film is not far fetched. Seems like a no-brainer for me. Maybe even one without Thor following some of the Norse mythology.

      In the mean time, he needs to dial the ego down, put his nose to the grindstone and cultivate his craft. He’s a smart guy and a pretty good writer too. One wonders why he doesn’t try to develop his own projects.

      There is something he could use the trust fund for.

    Another story of Hiddles and a beautiful woc, this time he was with his gf and the woc was working for a hotel he was at. Wonder which gf it was:

    “Tom hiddles:

    He tried to hit on my friend who worked at a hotel. He is so fking shameless. His girlfriend was with him. Not with him at the time, but the moment she left he started hitting on my friend. He’s actually very smart. He was talking to her about the origins of Somalians ( shes somalian), the colonization of east africa etc. He then started to fawn over how beautiful she was, and he even asked her out on a coffee date, next time he’s in town. Also, he is a really nice guy, totally opposite of fassbender patient, cool etc. But he is really **** annoyed of those avengers fans. Chris evans too. my friend told me that they get REALLY annoyed when they leave a building and they are waiting outside. When hiddles was told that his fans were outside at the front, he darted through the back of the hotel, and exited from there. My friend told him that she’d love to go on a date with him, she told me that they had great chemistry. But she doesn’t want to get mauled by fans. He says that he understands, and that they would probably go crazy considering she doesn’t look like them. IDK what the *** that means but whatever.”

    Not sure if you are allowed to leave links here, but this was at lipstickalley with a link through part 2 of their TH thread.

    Yeah, playah, set and matched. I can understand his annoyance with the fans. Those fangirls are insane and I loved that “burn” towards the fangirls at the end, lol.

    • flowerpotty says:

      I also read that story on Lipstick Alley and I’m cautiously calling BS about the part with his “girlfriend being there with him”. No idea when or where this story is supposed to have taken place, but if it’s supposed to have happened this past weekend I think it may be a fake story. I’m 99% sure Jane wasn’t at Comic-Con with Tom. Of course, it could have been one of Luke’s assistants or another casual date of Tom’s.

    • Roberta says:

      “But he is really **** annoyed of those avengers fans. Chris evans too.”

      Sounds to me like it was during the Avengers shoot, so that would be 2 years ago, and his gf at the time.

      • flowerpotty says:

        It did cross my mind that perhaps this was during the Avengers press tour moreso than the shoot itself, but if memory serves me correctly, wasn’t Tom single at the time of the press tour? I’m fairly sure he had broken up with Susannah only a few months prior.
        It could very well have been during Comic-Con weekend seeing as Chris Evans was there for the Captain America 2 panel…I’m just not buying the bit about the girlfriend being there…

      • Roberta says:

        Looking at the other posts on that site, it looks like NYC (Katie Holmes was mentioned as well). If Evans was there as well then it must be the shoot in 2011 – Susannah was there at the time.

    • gensou says:

      if it happened in 2011 why is it surfing only now?
      And that bit about his fans sounds unrealistic. You’re talking of a man that happily takes photos with fans even when he isn’t working, when he is on holiday or in the subway. Why would he complain about them at an event where he’s promoting a movie?

      if it’s about SDCC, somebody on lipstick alley mentioned she/he had a friend who worked there and reported he was alone.

      So, this seems more like a text written to satisfy some specific fandoms.

    I genuinely loved the whole surprise turning-up-as-Loki to Comic-Con appearance. The audience loved it and Tom looked like he genuinely loved doing it too. Kevin Feige’s a shrewd bugger – he knows exactly how big a drawcard for Marvel Tom is and how crazy Tom’s fans are and Comic-Con proved it. The fans were eating out of Tom’s hand – if he told them all to set themselves on fire, they would have done it.
    As a side note though – looking at Tom’s very flirty behaviour at the Con, coupled with the fact that the “girlfriend” didn’t appear to be there with him to the best of anyone’s knowledge (her Twitter feed shows she was at a music festival in the UK that same weekend -yes I went temporarily stalking) makes me wonder whether there’s anyone out there that still believes this story about Tom and his “girlfriend”??

    • Miss Melissa says:

      Well, I guess one would have to grow up, get off tumblr and start thinking about the definition of the word “girlfriend.” (Not directed at you – directed at the freak out folks that are still buzzing.)

      Yes, anyone I go out with, or hook up with is a boyfriend of mine. Not a steady, not a partner, not THE boyfriend, but they are my boyfriends.

      I suspect Tom has several girlfriends in this vein, and that she is one of them. I’m sure they date, hook up and spend time together. Repeatedly. But I suspect that when he gets serious about someone, he’ll talk about it. Just like he did with Susannah.

      • MissThing says:

        So the upshot of all this is that yes, Tom likes women. He likes them ALOT and flirts whenever he can. Why else does a man pursue any career goal… to increase access to money/power/fame… so to have better access to pootang. At the end of the day that is what it’s all about.

    • flower says:

      I think the “gf” stuff is to put it mildly and to use an old term “hogwash”. She could have very well have come with him to Diego instead of attending a music festival.

      • flowerpotty says:

        @flower You get bonus points for use of the term “hogwash” :-)
        Agree with you 100%.

      • Vadamee says:

        Well, it’s her job. If she’s head of radio promotions I think she kinda has a job like Luke’s but with a few bands. She promotes Foals and Clint Mansell a lot on her Twitter, so under obligation she would have to go to certain festivals if those bands she’s responsible for are playing. Foals were playing at the Latitude festival she had to go to so that makes sense. She’s a career woman or whatever, I don’t she has time to go galavanting off to a comic convention when she has other duties.

      • MissJazz says:

        Re: Vadamee.

        I do believe she would have jump into the opportunity to go to the con with Tom because it’s been told she loves the celebrity spotlight and all that shit and comic con with Hiddleston would have given her that spotlight she loves.
        For me the “gf” scenario is bs too. IMO as a lot of the people in here she’s a FWB.

  34. helwal says:

    I wonder if Hiddleston pr people post on here and other gossip sites to give Hiddles a heterosexual flavour.

  35. Caroline says:

    I would’ve believed the gossip more if it didn’t have him telling a complete stranger that he finds Avengers fans annoying. That sounds really out of character. In fact, it just seems the whole tidbit makes him sound like some disrepectful a**hole. If this wasn’t gossip partaining to comic con but during the avengers press tour, why say your fans are annoying and yet bait them all that time. Doesn’t make sense really.

  36. Vadamee says:

    RE: MissJazz
    That’s a bit of a lavish claim, don’t you think? For someone who’s believing anonymous gossip? I mean I’m not really buying the serious relationship thing either but in a position like hers she can’t exactly drop everything to go to a comic convention? Lets be realistic here instead of making a big perez hilton like claim about someone. The girl’s got a big job, head of radio promotions, fame hungry as you’d like to believe or not, girl’s got responsibilities like any normal adult with a successful career. And y’know, she gets paid for that shit?
