Marvel’s fan favorite villain, Loki from the Thor movie franchise, is quite beloved, as all one has to do is google search him to find his legions of fans sharing their love of the baddie in many ways. Tom Hiddleston, his portrayer, also shares the sentiments of his fans, and recently opened up about his love for the character he is so famously known for. Hiddleston revealed in an interview that given the chance,  he would "love" the opportunity to play Loki again. The British actor takes on the role of Thor's adopted brother/nemesis for the third time in Thor: The Dark World, following his much talked about appearances in Thor and The Avengers. Hiddleston had much to say about how fond he has become of the character. "I love the character and I've played him once a year for the last three years. I keep thinking up these hare-brained schemes of what else he might do," he said. It appears that the British thespian feels a certain sense of ownership when it comes to the villain. "I have so many ideas about where I could take him and how he can be developed further. The more I've played him, the more I've got to know him and I feel like I own a part of him now. I have an authority on him," he shared. Hiddleston recently spoke out about his doubts over a Loki spin-off film,  addressing the rumor that had been making the rounds and commented further on that state of that possibility. "I don't know about that. We'll see. I'd love to one day, but we'll wait and see," he said. The actor can see why there would be a hesitation on going that route with the villain and why it may not work. "I think Loki exists in opposition to other people so if he's on his own, he's got nothing to do, no chaos to create. He's just haunted by his demons so we have to find a way of chipping him up and pulling the rug from under his feet to make him interesting." Though many are not shocked by how loved Loki is, Hiddleston admitted he is surprised by Loki's popularity. "I'd never expected in my wildest expectations that he would be so popular. It's just a huge compliment so I feel really grateful for it," he shared. Though surprised, the actor totally gets the attraction to the dark side and villains in general. "As a child, I loved bad guys. I loved Jack Nicholson when he played the Joker for Tim Burton, I loved Alan Rickman in Die Hard. To me, they epitomised elegance and charm and their villainy was always entertaining so I wanted to bring that to the character." Hiddleston’s next project will be hitting the West End’s stage as the lead in Donmar Warehouse’s production of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Coriolanus. Thor: The Dark World is set to hit theaters on October 30 in the UK and November 8 in the US.
