Tom Hiddleston wants Star Wars Episode VII role

Nov 15 2012, 10:03am CST | by

Tom Hiddleston wants to appear in 'Star Wars: Episode VII', but he will not be directed by Ben Affleck in the movie after the 'Argo' star said he is ''glad'' he doesn't have to take on the role.

Tom Hiddleston wants to feature in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.
The 31-year-old actor is keen to take up a role in the forthcoming sci-fi movie - which is being created by Disney after the entertainment multinational purchased LucasFilm from George Lucas for an estimated $4 billion - but he is concerned he might now be typecast as his 'Thor' and 'Avengers Assemble' character Loki.
When asked if he would consider a role in the film, he told Digital Spy: ''Absolutely, yeah. It would depend on the story and the character and things.
''But I don't know, maybe people would associate me too closely with Loki - I hope not.''
Should Tom sign up for the movie he looks unlikely to be directed by Ben Affleck as while a number of helmers, including Guillermo del Toro, have expressed an interest in taking on the role, the 'Argo' star says he is ''glad'' he doesn't have to do the job.
Speaking to MTV News, he explained: ''There are a lot of good directors out there. Naturally I would be inclined to get somebody who's great at telling stories. You're never going to be able to recapture the story that was the initial three, because it's so legendary and iconic. I don't know, I'm glad I don't have that job. It's a tough decision to make.''
'Star Trek' helmer J.J. Abrams has already ruled himself out of directing 'Star Wars: Episode VII', but Ben believes he would be the ideal man for the job.
He added: ''J.J. would kill it, he would crush it, but he would be great at anything.''

ANT-MAN opens Summer 2015. Read the full article on AICN THIS WEEKEND we learned that Idris Elba’s Heimdall and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki would be appearing in next Summer’s AGE OF ULTRON.   Given the amount of skillful continuity being brought to bear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe these days…and how thoroughly the ‘solo’ Marvel films seem to be interlaced with an over-arcing storyline…this news didn’t exactly come as a surprise.  But it’s interesting nonetheless, and is likely a byproduct ...

Two More Popular Marvel Characters Have Cameos In ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

Nov 3 2014 8:00am CST | Source: Slash Film

Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be big. Very big. Even the first teaser trailer hints at things we weren’t quite sure we’d see in a Marvel movie. Captain America’s shield broken, Steve Rogers somehow in the past, Iron Man fighting The Hulk, Black Panther references, etc. And, of course, some of that stuff can be explained when you look at the Phase 3 plans. Others can’t though and now a few more seemingly inexplicable, but awesome, news has been revealed. Keeping it vague, a very ...

The actor let the news slip in an interview with The Telegraph. Read the full article on AICN Aside from the central heroes, it's hard to guess which supporting characters from the MCU are going to pop up in the AVENGERS movie. They had a "no girlfriends" policy on the first film (which Downey unceremoniously broke), and only Stellan Skarsgard showed up as THOR's Erik Selvig (recurring characters like Nick Fury and Clark Gregg don't c ...
