[LOOK] Tom Hiddleston teases Marvel return: Loki's back

MANILA, Philippines – "He's back."

Mischievously winking, actor Tom Hiddleston posted on Instagram a photo of himself – in costume – hinting at his villainous character Loki's return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

He is set to reprise his role in the upcoming third Thor movie, Ragnarok.

"I'm so excited about playing him again," Tom previously said at Wizard World this year in Philadelphia, USA, as quoted by Entertainment Weekly.

"I'm four years older and Chris [Hemsworth] is four years older, and there will just be new things we find in it. The most exciting thing about him is that he is always a trickster. It is trying to find new ways for him to be mischievous, because I love doing that, and I hope you guys love watching that."

Apart from star Chris Hemsworth, Thor: Ragnarok is set to see appearances from Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, and Mark Ruffalo, who has played the Hulk in the MCU.

Also at Wizard World, Tom teased a face-off – a rematch, if you will – with the Hulk. In the first Avengers film, the big green guy thrashed him around, saying the mic drop-worthy line, "Puny god."

"The last time Loki and Hulk were in the same room didn’t go very well for Loki so, he’s got a few chips on his shoulder, but um, yeah, it’s fun," he said.

 

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok will hit US theaters on November 3, 2017. – Rappler.com
