Meet 'The Avengers'
For The Avengers, Loki takes his scheming to new heights. Though his goal isn't the most original (i.e. world domination!), he does it with flair...and a great head of hair.
Hiddleston talks about Loki's future and why he wants Bridesmaids producer Judd Apatow to give him a call.
Which Avenger Are You?
On Loki's Hair.
"In Thor, that was my own hair. I grew it out. But I have naturally curly, blonde hair, so I'll never look like that. By the time I got to The Avengers, I had come off two other films, which required me to have it very short. So I dyed it again and it was long enough to use a part of my hairline but the rest of it was a wig. It was kind of like extensions really so I couldn't have rocked it off-screen."
On Loki's sneer.
"It was an organic thing. Loki is arrogant, proud, vain, pompous and smug but underneath all of that are reservoirs of pain, lack of self-esteem, and emotional sadness. When people don't like themselves very much, they have to make up for it. The classic bully was actually a victim first. I never thought about Loki's swagger so it evolved from his vanity."
On the costume.
"When I first looked in the mirror I remember thinking how I looked so menacing.
