Loki Could Haunt ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ Tom Hiddleston Teases


Tom Hiddleston isn’t in the Avengers sequel, so perhaps he’ll plague Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. instead.

The Loki actor spoke with Crave Online about appearing in the upcoming ABC television series, saying, “It would be something that would depend upon script and story but yeah, of course.”

Finding a place for the god of mischief makes sense, given his role in “killingAgent Phil Coulson in The Avengers. Hiddleston said he’s talked with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. co-creator Joss Whedon about the small-screen project already, so speculate away.

Another topic worth speculating about: the continued involvement of Cobie Smulders as S.H.I.E.L.D. higher-up Maria Hill. The actress spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about wanting to continue the role once her work on How I Met Your Mother is complete.

“I’m up for it, it’s just a matter of the direction that they decide to go with the show,” she said. “I don’t know how much they’ll be at the Command Center and how much they need me around. If it works out organically with the story line, then I’d be happy to come in but I truly don’t know.”

Whether she has more to say on S.H.I.E.L.D., Maria Hill at least has a role in the pilot episode. Speaking of which, that will be screened Sunday at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

    I’m all for him being on the show in some way. it could be in the plot of thor 2 that Loki tries to betray Thor and fails, thus Odin banishes him of his powers and exiles him to Earth powerless

    Depending on how Thor 2 goes down I could see a newly free Loki challenging Coulson for being alive. It would work as a great way to reveal the how and why of his resurrection.

    Also, I really, really hope AIM and Hydra are constant threats on the show.

    Good lord this guy is an actor–I’m sure he would hint at an appearance on American Idol if he thought he’d get paid and able to book another gig for the following year.

    Give me a break with the Tom Hiddleston and/ or Hugh Jackman — I’d like to work more stories.

    Loki would be great in the evil mastermind role on the show as someone who manipulates everybody but never directly takes part in an episode (Til Sweeps week of course)

    like Randy replied I’m impressed that a person able to make $7331 in four weeks on the computer. did you see this web page w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m

    Loki simply empowers his avatars to wreak havoc on Earth on his behalf– hence the Wrecking Crew, Absorbing Man, etc.
