[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4856:]]Loki himself wanted to completely take over the world of Thor 2, "The Dark World," as Tom Hiddleston actually approached Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige about directing the sequel.

However, as Hiddleston has no experience, that put a stop to his plans rather abruptly.

The latest issue of Empire Magazine has Hiddleston revealing that he jokingly inquired about directing Thor 2.

I did ask, half-jokingly, Kevin Feige about directing 'Thor 2' and he said, 'Do you have something to show me?' I said no. He said, 'If you made something and showed me, I might consider it.

But it's better for the world that he said no. It would be such a responsibility, but I think I'd enjoy it.

We know that Alan Taylor, of Game of Thrones fame, eventually came on board to direct, and with all the set images and video we've seen recently, that seems like it will have been a good choice.

Tom Hiddleston also seemingly revealed as of late that Loki will not be appearing in The Avengers 2; however, did he really just mean as a bad guy?

Thor 2: The Dark World hammers into theaters November 8th, 2013 directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin,  Idris Elba as Heimidall, Zachary Levi as Fandral and Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed, Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Kurse.
