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.

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.

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.

I have added two shots of the photoshoot to the gallery, via the link below.
GQ posted this article that, being fair, I find very cute 🙂
When it comes to suits, Tom Hiddleston doesn’t shy away from a rich, attention-grabbing color or showy double-breasted cut—he’s British; it’s in his blood. On his casual days, however, he sticks with a uniform so unwavering it rivals that of John Legend or even Chris Martin. His formula involves slim jeans, a solid knit or T-shirt, and a classic coat all done in shades of black, navy, and charcoal. The finishing touch is almost always Aquatalia’s gray suede Ace boots.
Hiddleston hasn’t just been wearing these $425 Italian-made boots over the past couple of days or months (as seen above); he caught media attention for his unrelenting commitment to them last year when he wore them to several media events (see below) and even on the beach (to be fair, it was a rocky beach). In short, the man has found true love—one that outlasted his relationship with a certain blonde songstress. And we get it; the shoes look equally good with a suit or with a pair of jeans because they have a nice, slightly elongated shape that’s a lot more elegant than a pair of Red Wings or Docs.

Recently Tom did an interview with Courier mail, and discussed the making off movies, including Kong: Skull Island:
A lot of you were having issues accessing this article so I posted it below.
WHEN he flew into Australia in January of last year, headed for the Gold Coast Hinterland where Mt Tamborine would double for a mysterious slice of the South Pacific in Kong: Skull Island, Tom Hiddleston was given a full safety briefing.
“Red-bellied black snakes, brown snakes, funnel-web spiders …” he recounts.
He also talked about 2017 being a year of rest, after working consistently the past number of years:
What’s not so surprising now is, besides seeing Kong and Ragnarok out into the world, Hiddleston is planning to take much of 2017 off.
“I’m taking a bit of a breather, because I’ve been running quite hard for five or six years and I just need to check in with stuff at home,” he says.
The last six years have been undeniably huge for 36-year-old Hiddleston.
Regular work on British TV and stage switched gear into movie stardom via his much-loved Marvel role as Thor’s mischief-making brother Loki, backed up by great performances in The Deep Blue Sea, War Horse, Only Lovers Left Alive, Crimson Peak, TV’s The Hollow Crown and miniseries The Night Manager (the latter scoring him a statuette at last month’s Golden Globes).

It is, by now, not a secret to many that Doctor Strange shall be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, and whole doing press interviews for Kong: Skull Island, Tom has spoken a little bit about the 3rd Thor movie, and Loki’s interaction with Doctor Strange:
According to Tom Hiddleston, Loki will be rather apathetic towards Doctor Strange’s mystical powers.
Recently, the actor sat down for an interview with IGN where he was asked about Loki’s reaction to characters like Doctor Strange. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, much of what has kept Loki unique is his magical gifts, so the entrance of beings like Strange and even Hela could be a threat to Loki. However, Hiddleston doesn’t seem to think that’s the case.
“I think he probably dismisses Strange,” Hiddleston said about Loki. “Yes, his sorcery is very impressive, but Loki’s been doing that for century so who cares? But Hela is a different beast and full of surprises. [She] actually might have been someone with whom he actually got along, but the circumstances have changed.”

Tom was featured in the January 2017 issue of GQ Spain, with a small feature on his Gucci campaign. Also in the magazine was a page of some popular images on Instagram. Tom’s Loki selfie, as his first post on Instagram, was also included.

After accepting his award for Best Actor at the Golden Globes last night, it seems his speech was the kind to attract controversy. Quotes from his speech include:
”They wanted to say hello,” he told the Golden Globes audience. “Because during the shelling, in the previous month, they had binge-watched the Night Manager.
“The idea that I could, or that we could provide, some relief and entertainment for people… who are fixing the world in the places where it was broken made me immensely proud.”
Tom himself took to his official Facebook page to address the reaction to his speech:
Awesome surprise to see; Tom has been unveiled as the new face of Gucci! GQ posted a feature on their site, which you can see the article below:
Would-be Bond, soon-to-be Taylor Swift lyric, and Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston has many talents and chief among them, as far as we’re concerned, is his uncanny ability to wear a suit really f#@king well. And to be clear, we’re not grading on Hollywood actor curve here. Hiddleston’s innate ability to look great in sharp tailoring has earned him a place among modern day suiting gods like Lapo Elkann and Ryan Gosling—guys who know how to harness the power of some well-cut lapels.
So it shouldn’t come as a total surprise that Gucci, a.k.a. the world’s hottest label right now, has tapped Hiddleston as the face of their latest tailoring campaign. If anything, it’s just even more evidence that designer Alessandro Michele knows exactly what he’s doing, whether that’s slapping an en fuego cat on a Cruise 2017 T-shirt or calling on one of our favorite actors to flex in the house’s luxury tailoring offerings. And oh how Hiddleston flexes.
