Tom Hiddleston spoke with MTV about Loki arriving on earth in The Avengers movie.

Hiddleston confirms that the scene from the trailer that shows Loki with the soldiers is the God Of Mischief's big arrival.

While, you can check out that video below, Hiddleston also offered up some more details talking with, among of which includes the following:

• Loki brings the battle to Earth because he thinks that under one rule there will be no war, there is also a jealousy that Thor has this kingdom, and Loki wants to make it his own kingdom.
• There is a lot of Loki on his own, with only a little bit of support.
• Loki has been expanded, he has developed. Between the end of Thor and the beginning of The Avengers it's like he has been on three years training, he has a few more things up his sleeve.
• Joss has a soft spot for Loki, he likes him as a character and wanted to explore the sibling rivalry and interesting element in The Avengers.
• He has a great weapon in The Avengers, not like Cap's shield or Thor's Hammer (Check it out, right here on Cosmic Book News)
• It's a global battle, but Manhattan becomes a focus point for lots of reasons.
Those videos can be found below, as well, via io9.

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.
