Loki takes over: Tom Hiddleston on his new TV series and a decade in the MCU

From invading NYC to his epic sacrifice, Tom Hiddleston looks back at 10 years of playing Loki on his Digital Cover Shoot with Entertainment Weekly to promote his new show.

Ten years after Hiddleston first chose chaos in Thor, Marvel’s fan favorite God of Mischief is going even bigger with his time-bending Disney+ show.

Tom Hiddleston is Loki, and he is burdened with glorious purpose: After playing Thor’s puckish brother for over a decade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, no one understands the mercurial Asgardian God of Mischief as well as the actor. He can teach an entire seminar on Loki if given the opportunity — which he actually did during pre-production on his forthcoming Disney+ show. In conversation, Hiddleston quotes lines from his MCU debut, 2011’s Thor, almost verbatim, and will playfully correct you if you mistakenly refer to Asgard’s Rainbow Bridge as the Bifrost, which is the portal that connects Loki and Thor’s homeworld to the Nine Realms, including Midgard, a.k.a. Earth. “Well, the Bifrost technically is the energy that runs through the bridge,” he says with a smile. “But nine points to Gryffindor!” And when he shows up to the photo shoot for this very digital cover, he hops on a call with our photo editor to pitch ways the concept could be even more Loki, like incorporating the flourish the trickster does whenever magically conjuring something. The lasting impression is that playing Loki isn’t just a paycheck.
