Hiddleston and Whedon's adventure

Tom Hiddleston enjoyed spending time with The Avengers director Joss Whedon, he has revealed.

The War Horse actor is reprising his villainous role as Loki in the Marvel blockbuster, where he will take on Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson).

"I had a lot of fun with him, it was great," he said.

"Joss has an extraordinary taste, I think. He's got such a brilliant and irreverent sense of humour but also an incredibly deep knowledge of the comic book genre and a respect for the traditions of how these things are handled."

Tom - who is up for the Bafta Rising Star award opposite his Thor co-star Chris Hemsworth, Chris O'Dowd, Eddie Redmayne and Adam Deacon - is keeping tight-lipped about the highly anticipated Thor sequel, which will be directed by Alan Taylor.

"There is a Thor 2. It's been green-lit, and I think it will start shooting in London in the spring," he said.

"Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are coming back. I haven't seen the script. This is where I feel the Marvel snipers are waiting and watching across the street..."
