Marvel fans are excited for this November’s Thor: Ragnarok, not just because Thor will fight the Hulk in one badass-lookin’ gladiatorial battle, but also because the film marks the return of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, who we haven’t seen in action since 2013’s Thor: The Dark World.
So what kind of Loki will see see in the third Thor outing, which also features Cate Blanchett as the villainous Hela and a little more Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange? Well, for one, it’s going to be the funniest version we’ve seen of Thor yet, so says Hiddleston.
While doing press for Kong: Skull Island (in theaters March 10), Fandango spoke to Hiddleston about the humor in Thor: Ragnarok, its director Taika Waititi, and where exactly we pick up with Loki this time around.

“At the end of The Dark World, Loki is on the thorne. At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a few questions and Loki is endearingly enigmatic about providing answers,” Hiddleston told Fandango’s Nikki Novak. “Taika Waititi is such a spirited, hilarious individual, and he and Chris [Hemsworth] became very fast friends. And what was great for me was to see their friendship kind of blossom and they brought out the best in each other and started making stuff up. I can confidently say this will be the funniest depiction of the character of Thor that you’ve ever seen. I personally have known for almost 10 years that Chris Hemsworth is hilarious. I think this go-round will be his chance.”
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3.
