Tom Hiddleston Hopes for Enchantress Appearance in Future Marvel Movie
Marvel movie fans have already made it known that they'd really, really like a solo movie for Tom Hiddleston's Loki character. Thankfully, the actor has an idea of what his character could get up to in such a feature -- and whom he could get up to it with.
"When I was first reading the comics, [Loki's] relationship with the Enchantress was one of the really fun things I thought would be good to explore," Hiddleston told Total Film magazine while promoting November's Thor: The Dark World, referencing the fan-favorite femme fatale from the series. "[I] may have even pitched it to [Marvel Studios head] Kevin Feige at some point."
Hiddleston explained that he liked the combination of his trickster god and the Enchantress "because she was as sneaky and as untrustworthy as he was. They basically had a really fantastic and twisted relationship until they both say, 'You know what? I don’t trust you as far as I can throw you. It’s over.' Because they keep betraying each other, in a way. So it could be good."
The actor also took the opportunity to remind everyone that Loki was "certainly" not celibate, even without Amora around. "I mean, Sleipnir is one of his children. Did you know that? Odin’s eight-legged horse in the mythology is one of Loki’s children," Hiddleston (correctly) pointed out. "As is Fenrir the wolf."
Somehow it's hard to imagine Disney being entirely OK with the potential bestiality implications of those mythical offspring showing up in the movies, even if the idea of a cute Loki and Fenrir animated movie does seem like a potential winner at some point down the line. Think Lilo & Stitch, but just a little bit more evil.
