Hiddleston wants Thor redemption

Tom Hiddleston has revealed he'd like Loki to redeem himself in Thor 2.

The actor, who is reprising his role as Thor's evil brother in both Thor 2 and The Avengers, told MTV his character gets even darker in The Avengers but that he hopes all will be redeemed eventually.

He said: "In The Avengers he's really dark and kind of sociopathic, or maybe even psychopathic is the word, in a deluded way."

He went on: "Obviously I haven't let go of the spiritual damage at the heart of him, it still comes from that lost place, but he's just incredibly nasty. I think that probably in Thor 2 ... he'll have to take responsibility for what he's done.

"The great thing about Loki is there is potential in him for greatness and awfulness, for great heroism and great villainy. Even within The Avengers, there are moments where you see within Loki a glimmer of hope and that possibility of redemption."

"I for one am championing the redemption," he added.

The Avengers is due out next year, when Thor 2 will begin shooting.
