The Avengers (2012): Tom Hiddleston Says It Has To Be Bad Ass


amazing spider-manTom Hiddleston was in NYC recently for a photo shoot, and the actor sat down and spoke with Just Jared.

Hiddleston is asked about working with director Joss Whedon, and offers up his thoughts on just what The Avengers should be.

Joss has kind of got this pan-literacy about the genre and his dexterity in negotiating all the different story lines, all the different characters, all the different tones just so that it’s real and relatable and funny and dynamic and then just badass, because that’s what the Avengers has to be! So he was capable of directing intensely dynamic scenes between two characters, but also delivering action on the most incredible scale. I can’t say enough about Joss. Amazing director.

Hiddleston also says that his character Loki has "one-to-one" confrontations with all The Avengers, and that his favorite on set props are the spear he uses and Samuel L. Jackson's character, Nick Fury's, "Minority Report-like" iPads. He continues briefly mentioning each Avenger, which you can check out on JJ.

The Avengers assembles May 4th, 2012 and is directed by Joss Whedon, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
