'Thor 2: The Dark World:' Marvel Announces 'Thor 3' and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) Spin-Off, Opening Numbers
Thor 2: The Dark World comes out in America this week. The film opened overseas with impressive numbers, putting it on track to beat the first film's box office. Marvel recently announced that if the film is a success, it could likely lead to Thor 3 and maybe even a Loki spin-off film, starring Tom Hiddleston.
During a recent interview with ComicBookMovie.com, Marvel Studio's president of production, Kevin Feige, talked about the possibility of there being a Thor 3:
"Thor's next adventure will be Age of Ultron. So, that's where all the Thor effort is going. But there are things you will see at the end of [The Dark World] that certainly hint towards and could lead towards a third Thor adventure if that’s what audiences want to see. We definitely have a story we’d like to tell."
Fans have been calling for a Loki spin-off film. Feige also addressed the possibility of a Loki feature film:
"Yeah, I don’t think it would be before Thor 3, if there is a Thor 3, and while we certainly have ideas of where we would like that to go, there are no specifics. We have to see how this one does and then go from there."
Tom Hiddleston recently expressed interest in reprising his role as Loki, telling the Associated Press:
"I love the character and I've played him once a year for the last three years. I keep thinking up these hare-brained schemes of what else he might do.I have so many ideas about where I could take him and how he can be developed further. The more I've played him, the more I've got to know him and I feel like I own a part of him now. I have an authority on him.I don't know about that. We'll see. I'd love to one day, but we'll wait and see. I think Loki exists in opposition to other people so if he's on his own, he's got nothing to do, no chaos to create. He's just haunted by his demons so we have to find a way of chipping him up and pulling the rug from under his feet to make him interesting."© 2016 The Classical Art, All rights reserved.
