The KAPOW comic convention being held in the UK this weekend, held a Thor Movie Panel with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston attending.
They screened 20 minutes of footage and answered questions after.
Worth a mention, is that Hiddleston stated that he is not going to be appearing in the upcoming Joss Whedon directed The Avengers, according to the Daily Blam.
It was previously rumored that Loki was to be the big bad, and also that both the Skrulls and the Kree were involved (alien races in the Marvel Universe).
Maybe Hiddleston hasn't signed yet, they haven't asked or --
Could another actor be portraying Loki? Note: Hiddleston stated that he isn't - not Loki.
Assuming Thor wins at the end of the Thor movie, possibly leading to the "demise" of Loki, it's quite possible we could see another "look" from Loki in The Avengers.
Presently in the comics, Loki is a young boy (after being reincarnated) and we've seen him as a female, as well.
Heck, he's a shape-shifter -- so it is possible.
Speaking of the female version, Loki used the body of Sif to trick Thor, and everyone else, that "he" had returned as a "she" vowing to be on "her" best behavior - born anew. However, it all turned out to be a ruse as Loki was up to his usual trickster ways.
This would actually fit in with The Avengers and Thor, as Loki could be leading them on pretending to be born again and reformed -- all the while bringing the Kree and Skrulls to earth. Heck, Loki may even be linked to the Avengers fighting the Hulk in the beginning of the movie.
Might need a female villain to even out all that testosterone.
Still, without Hiddleston even making an appearance, as most likely his upcoming Thor performance will be phenomenal, would be disappointing to say the least. Sort of like if Warner Bros. didn't have Henry Cavill as Superman or Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern in a Justice League movie. Oh wait...
The Avengers hits May 4th, 2012 and is directed by Joss Whedon, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
Thor hammers into theaters May 6th 2011, directed by Kenneth Branagh starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster.
