The third episode of the show will arrive on Disney+ Hotstar on June 23
Tom Hiddleston’s Loki has impressed and intrigued Marvel fans with the cliffhanger ending in episode two. The presence of Sophia Di Martino has given a new dimension to the show.
In a recent statement, Tom talked about his character and also revealed that the tone of the series will excite fans even more. The actor added, “We all wanted the tone of the show to represent the best of Loki’s character. Loki’s character has this extraordinary range. Loki can be fun, light-hearted and witty. He’s always got a good line: he’s the God of Mischief, after all. So, we wanted the show to be imbued with mischief, a sense of fun and a sense of momentum. But we also know that Loki has this very sensitive, damaged, broken heart with an enormous capacity to feel the emotion on the biggest scale. And to go to some quite profound places that explore some of the deepest experiences of being alive that are about loneliness and sadness and anger and grief and loss.”
“We wanted the tone of the whole show to have all of it, to have that sense of fun, to have that sense of mischief. And to have that sense of emotional depth and emotional breadth that hopefully could be contained in this epic story, which starts from the things that people are familiar with,” Tom concluded.
Speaking about the show and the new opportunities for storytelling across the Marvel Cinematic Universe, director Kate Herron said, “It’s not a two-hour story. It’s a six-hour story. What’s exciting to me about that is that we can now go down a slightly more mature and darker path with this particular story. But we can also subvert expectations, and maybe we don’t give viewers the story they would be expecting. It’s cool and fun to see a studio that wants to play like that and to be part of it.
Loki also stars Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku with Richard E. Grant. The third episode will arrive on Disney+ Hotstar on June 23.
