(Thor: Ragnarok) Tom On the Transformation Of Loki

Check out this interesting interview with Tom, posted by Collider, discussing coming back to the Marvel universe as Loki after a hiatus, and the evolution of the character.

At the end of Thor: The Dark World, Loki’s got everything he ever wanted.  How has it gone for him since?

You’ll have to wait and see. That question is answered in this film, so I’m loath to tell you because I think it’s surprising and fun.  But yeah, you’re right.  He finished Thor: The Dark World on the throne and it’s taken awhile for anyone to catch on…

Has Loki changed at all?

Yes, but that’s in his nature. He’s a mercurial spirit, and the minute you try to define him, he changes shape. Events in Ragnarok do try and inspire him to change forever… The Goddess of Death shows up, and the stakes are high for everybody, so Loki, perhaps more than ever, is challenged to define himself in the face of that threat.

(Thor: Ragnarok) Tom Explains the Relationship Between Thor and Loki

Now that Thor: Ragnarok’s release is coming closer, Tom has started to participate in various interviews, including those done while filming. Below is a snippet of the interview by Comic Book, discussing the relationship between the two brothers.

“I’ve said this about Loki before, but the opposite of love is not hate but indifference. The idea that Thor might be indifferent to Loki is troubling for him because a defining feature of his character is, ‘I don’t belong in the family; my brother doesn’t love me; I hate my brother,’” Hiddleston revealed.

Hamlet Begins RADA Theatre Run

Hamlet Begins RADA Theatre Run

After a successful preview for family/friends, Hamlet officially began its 3 week run through September, at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.

I have added HQ production stills to the gallery, courtesy of Torrilla.

Although entry was only through ballot, and not open for press, a number of people were accepted and attended the opening night and were able to provide reviews for national newspapers. Snippets of these reviews are posted below. Congratulations to Tom who has received exceptional reviews for his portrayal as Hamlet!

Yet the first performance had none of the air-kissing ballyhoo one associates with first nights. If anything, the occasion was remarkable for the traditionalism of Branagh’s production, the romanticism of Hiddleston’s Hamlet and the rapt concentration of the audience…But, if I had to pick out Hiddleston’s key quality, it would be his ability to combine a sweet sadness with an incandescent fury. He suggests a fierce intellect gnawed by intense melancholy and yet subject to bouts of intemperate rage.

The Guardian

And as for the main event, Hiddleston? His Hamlet is proactive, masculine, edgy to the point of aggression – and definitely, absolutely sane. His madness is a ruse, through and through. Having decided to “be mad by craft”, he appears wrapped in the flag of Denmark with his face painted in the national colours, like a hardcore football fan.

Tom Set To Appear As Hamlet In New Theatre Production

Tom Set To Appear As Hamlet In New Theatre Production

Tom had been taking an extended break from acting the past number of months after back to back promotions for Crimson Peak, I Saw the Light and Kong: Skull Island, but today came the news that he is to star in a new RADA theatre production of the Shakespeare play; Hamlet.

He is once again working alongside Kenneth Branagh, whom he starred alongside in Wallander and also with Thor, as Kenneth directed the movie.

Money made from the ticket sales will go directly to the fund established to help regenerate the RADA facilities. Tom is a notable alumni of RADA, also known as The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

The production is in aid of the RADA Attenborough Campaign to support the transformation of RADA’s Chenies Street site in London, further developing the Academy as a world-leader in dramatic arts training.

Hamlet is a tragedy play set in ancient Denmark written by Shakespeare between the years of 1599 and 1602. It tells the story of Prince Hamlet, who bears witness to his father’s ghost after his death.

Tom is following in the footsteps of Andrew Lee Scott and Benedict Cumberbatch who have recently played the character in other theatre productions. Of the play announcement, Tom said:

I hope the funds raised by the production will help RADA continue to provide a wider field of equal opportunity to train actors, stage managers and technical theatre artists, from every background, to a standard of excellence and professionalism. We need to keep the doors open for everyone.

The theatre production itself will run from 1 – 23 September at the Jerwood Vanbrugh Theatre in London. The ballot for tickets opened today at 12pm, and will continue until 6pm Sunday 6th August. Only 2 tickets can be bought per person. Costs range from £15 – £95.

Via the RADA Hamlet site, you can book your tickets, as well as view the dates and times of the play.

[Gallery Update] The Hollywood Reporter Presents Thor: Ragnarok

While at Comic Con, the cast of Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther took part in a Marvel family photoshoot. Below is a snippet of the accompanying article:

Backstage at Comic-Con, THR captured Cate Blanchett, Michael B. Jordan, Mark Ruffalo and more in the first-ever star-studded portrait of the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

About 30 minutes before the stars of Disney’s and Marvel’s Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok took to the Hall H stage at Comic-Con on Saturday, the worlds of Asgard and Wakanda collided backstage for the first-ever Marvel family photo of the two casts.

Nineteen members of the Marvel universe — led by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige — posed for The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive portrait backstage just moments before the studio’s presentation. From the moment they arrived, the room was full of laughter and hugs, as many of the actors were reuniting with their casts for the first time in months.

The full article can be read here.

I have added two shots of the photoshoot to the gallery, via the link below.

Tom did indeed attend Comic Con yesterday, especially for the Marvel panel which highlighted the new movies in their calendar. Although he didn’t fully take part in the experience, such as the press line and photoshoots, he did appear on stage with the cast of Thor: Ragnarok and also helped to introduce the Avengers: Infinity War trailer.

I have HQ images to the gallery, with hopefully more updates to come such as screencaps. Thank you to the admin of Rose McIver Online who helped source images!
