— Tom Hiddleston News (@TWH_news) September 1, 2016
Thor: Ragnarok is in the midst of shooting in Queensland, Australia, and apparently Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is still shooting some scenes for it, because this fan managed to snap a pic of the actor in costume while on set for the film. This image has since been deleted from said fan’s personal Instagram account, where it first appeared, but the internet never lets anybody forget an image–so it’s still getting shared on Twitter.
We already knew Loki would be in this movie (he’s been listed on the IMDB page for a bit), but it’s not yet clear how large of a role he’ll have in the narrative proceedings. Mark Ruffalo already wrapped filming for his scenes as the Hulk last month, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the movie is done with all of the important scenes (although we do know Hulk’s a main character in this “buddy movie”). We also know that Cate Blanchett will be playing the main baddie of the movie, though, so it remains to be seen what sort of role Loki could serve as a result.
Anyway, his costume is slightly understated in comparison to previous movies, assuming this image shows the full look. This outfit is a slightly more ornate twist on a more casual outfit that he wore during one of the prison scenes in the previous Thor movie. In spite of being more ornate, it still doesn’t feature the eye-catching gold crescent and high collar of his more ceremonial battle costume. It’s somewhere between the two looks.
Hopefully, Hiddleston’s scenes will end up in the final version of the movie, since he’s always a delight to watch as Loki. I know he got cut from Avengers: Age of Ultron because he distracted too much from the already-stuffed plot, though. I can imagine how something similar might happen again here, since it seems like there are already a lot of new characters and new storylines to juggle, between Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie and Cate Blanchett’s Hela. Guess we’ll have to wait and see what Loki does … and what he wears!
