Loki featured in latest Thor: The Dark World poster

September 9th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Marvel has been pumping out the promotional material lately and have released yet another poster for the upcoming Thor: The Dark World. This one again features Tom Hiddleston as Loki. A few weeks ago Marvel Studios announced that they went back for some reshoots for the upcoming Thor sequel and that these scenes were being shot to add more Loki to the film. This morning Tom Hiddleston revealed to the Huffington Post that the reshoots on the film were actually based on an idea he had:

“We were adding new stuff. So that was fun for me. And some of the things were scenes I’d actually pitched for a long time ago….The thing about Kevin Feige is he’s very, very open and collaborative. And he and Louis D’Esposito, who run the studio — I find it very admirable that they’re open to ideas…Chris Hemsworth and myself have lived inside these characters for two movies now and we’ve been inside every scene and we know what works and we know what doesn’t works. And also, we know what we’ve done and what we shouldn’t try to repeat. Because that was the great sort of fire underneath myself was not wanting to take anything for granted or just put the old recipe in the microwave, you know? And try and find new things for the characters to do — new iterations of the relationship between Thor and Loki. And Kevin was really open to that. I remember as we were conceiving of the shape of the film, Kevin and [director] Alan Taylor were really open to it, especially because they always talk about the connective aspect of the Marvel universal.”

What do you think “new iterations” of Thor and Loki’s relationship means?
