Tom Hiddleston makes his triumphant return to the screen as Loki in Thor: The Dark World this weekend. Sure, Loki is the villain of the Marvel universe, but he’s also the runaway star? How did that happen? Let’s just say that Tom Hiddleston might not be acting when he’s playing Loki. He might be the ultimate trickster in real life, too. Don’t believe us? Check out these 10 mischievous moments from Tom Hiddleston and let us know if you think he’s the God of Mischief in real life, too.
1) When He Pranked MTV After Hours
Tom Hiddleston was just your average talented British actor making a name for himself with his wit, charm and onscreen charisma, until he suggested he had a darker side when he showed up on MTV After Hours before The Avengers and proclaimed himself the God of Mischief. Consider us now and forever “Loki’d!”
2) When He Surprised Comic-Con’s Hall H As Loki
Comic-Con is the mecca of all things nerd and if there’s one thing that nerds are good at it’s scooping spoilers. Hiddleston outwitted them all when he took over the Marvel panel as Loki. He reportedly flew on the plane to San Diego in a costume so that fans heading to Comic-Con wouldn’t recognize him — and couldn’t spoil the surprise.
Looks like they enjoyed being taken by unawares…
