Ha, all you “Lokane” fans out there, you may enjoy this bit from Tom Hiddleston, on MTV’s SplashPage.
So Hiddleston was apparently asked about the slap in the Thor 2 trailer, and said the following:
“Loki and Jane never actually met in the first film,” said Hiddleston. “At the end of Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Thor’ film, Loki says to Thor, ‘What happened to you on Earth that turned you so soft? Don’t tell me it was that woman.’ At which point, Thor’s hand grips tighter around Mjolnir, and Loki says, ‘Oh it was. Maybe when we’re finished here, I’ll pay her a visit myself.’ That becomes the impetus for the enormous fight they have at the end of the film, so there’s been this unspoken relationship between Loki and Jane, but they’ve never actually met. And I think there’s a huge amount of mileage to be had in whatever that spark is between them. Jane knows about Loki, Loki knows about Jane, and what happens when we get the two of them in a room together.”
Hmmm! Now, I’m pretty sure Thor & Jane will remain Thor & Jane in this film, but I suppose anything is possible. Marvel has been known to do twists. (See Iron Man 3.) What do you think? Would Marvel go there?
